Our thanks to James for this piece penned by a whiny feminist. The start of the piece:
We’ve all heard the rib-jabbing comments about makeup that some men like to spout, from “Take her swimming on the first date” to “This is why I have trust issues.” All these comments allude to the fact that a person somehow “tricks” their date if they show up to dinner with highlighter and mascara on. Apparently, this fear has grown to such exponential heights that one man has now invented an app that digitally wipes makeup off any photo uploaded to the service. Real world problems, and we get this bullshit.
The app is called MakeApp, and its the creation of Russian founder Ashot Gabrelyanov. The digital “miracle” lets you wipe away the cosmetics from five photos for free before asking you to pay $0.99 to continue editing images and videos.
