My life is not currently compatible with wearing make-up or looking good in anyway, so I don’t spend a lot of time over on Millihelen. Make-up is fun and certainly worth having a chat about, so no hate for this sub-blog in general.

The regional make-over series they are doing, though, make me uncomfortable.

I feel like the main comment ends up being about how one of the “subjects” is “a goddess” and then that subject gets tons of compliments and praise-some of it about their make-up, but not necessarily.

And then there are the other two women who get a few comments, or even some criticisms (yikes!) and it makes me feel gross.

I know the subjects volunteer, but it feels icky and cliquish to me, especially since the “goddess” is usually the woman who is all ready the prettiest/youngest/conventionally hot of the group and the compliments are usually about things that aren’t really make-up dependent, like eye-brows, hair or bone structure.
