Red Carpet: Mischa Barton Got A Makeover!

The fashion crowd has been calling for a Mischa Barton “comeback” for years now. Setting aside the issue of what it would mean for “someone from The OC who walked some red carpets sometimes” to make a comeback, let’s all be interested and amused by the fact that Barton popped up earlier this week looking more polished than she has in a while.

Illustrator Gives Fun Hipster Makeovers To DC Superheroines

Have you ever wondered what Cat Woman would look like if she were an artsy young purrson trying to make it in the big city, or what Wonder Woman would look like if she shopped at Urban Outfitters? Conversely, have you wondered what you, a stylish young lady, would look like if you were secretly a superhero?

Check Out These Striking Photos Of Porn Stars Before And After Their Porn Makeup

So, this is interesting. Yesterday, Reddit got a hold of a bunch of “before and after” photos designed to showcase the work of porn makeup artist Melissa Murphy, and I must say, she is good at what she does. Whether her subject is young and fresh faced or starting to show signs of aging, she makes every performer over in that same eerie, ageless, Barbie-like style of which the industry is so fond. Buzzfeed got a hold of them today, and looked up the actresses’ ages (which may or may not be accurate, of course) to weird it up even more. The lesson that I take from this is that while not everyone might have what it takes to be in porn, pretty much everyone has the ability to look like they are. But you probably already knew that. I am also a big fan of anything that shows porn stars as human beings and not just sex dolls, and I feel like the “before” photos give us a glimpse into the more normal, less “XXX” parts of their lives.
