Makeup techniques and products have advanced so much that even the most average looking person can look beautiful and more appealing to the opposite sex. Even idols can shock fans when they show their bare faces without any makeup on. But how much of a drastic change is too much?
One Korean boyfriend was so shocked by his girlfriend’s bare face he took to the internet to seek advice.
“Girls, please help me. I’m currently on vacation with my girlfriend and saw her bare face for the first time.”
The boyfriend was so stressed out by the new development that he couldn’t even sleep
“She is sleeping right now but I’m really stressed and cannot sleep. I’m so shocked so I decided to leave a post here.”
Even though the two had been going out for quite a long time, he had never seen her sans-makeup.
“She has never shown me her bare face in the 300 days we have been dating. She always appeared perfect and was late to many of our dates. She admitted that her bare face is really different and confessed that she was showing her bare face to a boyfriend for the first time.”
He was happy at first to be the first boyfriend to see her natural face, but ended up in complete shock!
“I was so happy to hear that and then when I saw her face. First of all, I thought her face was white, but her face was reddish-brown! I was shocked to discover that.”
While he was shocked by the color of her face, he was even more stunned by her eyes.
“But, most shocking of all, how can someone’s appearance change so much just because of her eyes? My girlfriend’s eyes changed so drastically.”
He used to think her eyes looked just like those of Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon but now, not so much.
“It seemed like before and after double eyelid surgery or something. Her eyes were big and beautiful, looking like Taeyeon’s eyes. But after she removed her makeup, her eyes seemed to be staring like she had complaints about society.”
He tried not to be judgemental but had a hard time processing the difference in her looks.
“I’m not being judgmental towards her face but, really, she seemed like a different person. I don’t even know why I’m acting this way. I reacted very calmly when she showed me her bare face and my girlfriend didn’t feel bad or anything either.”
Even after seeing her process of putting on makeup, he still felt like she was someone else.
“I told her to show me the process of her putting on make-up. She is currently sleeping next to me, but she literally seems like another person.”
The changes were so drastic he didn’t even think he would recognize her on the street!
“What do I do? It feels like this… I don’t think I would be able to recognize my girlfriend if she passed me on the streets with her bare face.”
While he had some time to process her look, he still decided he needed a little extra help from the internet.
We are going to a play tomorrow and I’m going to take her home. Then, I’m going to return on and read the comments so please give me advice.”
Many netizens seemed to understand the boyfriend and shared their own similar stories.
