Hey girls! Do you ever feel like you want to spice up the way you apply your makeup, whether that means wearing makeup at all, or wearing a bit more than usual, or doing a “smokey eye” even if you’re not going to something fancy, or wearing bright lipstick even if it makes you feel like everyone is looking at you thinking, “Why did she put that on her mouth?” Well, Forbes recently ran a trend piece about girls in the Ukraine who turn themselves into dolls. Sounds good! Maybe we can do that? From Forbes:
In interviews with Anime, which appeared on mainstream television in Ukraine and Russia over the past months, she gave the impression of being a pleasant, slightly naïve, girl, who is living in a dream and plays a fairy in a fairytale. She subsists almost entirely on honey-dew—no bread, meat or fish; mostly fruit and veggies. However, she is probably not as naïve as a fairy—her extreme makeup and unconventional style serve as a great promotional tool.
This is almost too perfect, considering that our diet consists mainly of honey-dew already. And “living in a dream and plays a fairy in a fairytale” legit sounds A LOT better than “living in a crowded city writing blog posts in my shoebox bedroom.” “BUT CAN WE SEE THESE GIRLS IN ACTION?” Yes! That’s the point of all this! Here they are on a talk show on a Ukrainian TV channel:
Perfect. Even though I cannot understand anything they’re saying, I can tell that this is a true trend coming to a neighborhood near you and not some mutually exploitative sad time for everyone. SHOULD WE DO IT, THOUGH? Paint yourself like a doll! Do it and go to work! Maybe everyone will like you more? “I used to think Candice was cold and stand-offish, but today she seems much friendlier. I can’t put my finger on why.” (Via UPROXX.)
