My mom didn’t really introduce me to makeup; I sort of discovered it on my own in the middle of college. (Much later than most, I know.) I like experimenting with new looks sometimes, although I usually just stick with my basic routine whenever I go out because I don’t want to risk looking like a raccoon if I mess up.
This 20-year-old South Korean girl named Dal-mi Bae, however, knew her makeup – and she loved it so much that she didn’t remove it for two whole years.
According to the news, though, Bae had become so obsessed with makeup that she would constantly apply and re-apply layer upon layer of makeup until she didn’t want to remove it anymore. Bae reportedly said: “I wanted to look perfect at all time. I even slept with the makeup on.”
And so, sleep with makeup on she did.
Bae was finally convinced by her mother and a dermatologists who were at a variety show to remove her makeup. She consented, and after the skin doctors checked her skin, the results were pretty obvious: her skin was now that of a 40 year-old – two times older than her actual age.
Oh, the price of (faux) beauty.
