Man creates "sexist, misogynist" app, MakeApp, that shows what women look like without makeup. Rage ensues. (self.TheRedPill)

But wait, I thought make-up was just another tool of the patriarchy. These women should be applauding this man for "dismantling standard conventions of beauty."
Gotta love that article as well. Doesn't even bother with the usual left-wing nutjob commentary - just goes straight to taking the piss out of the designer. Hard-hitting female journalism right there.
[–][deleted] 209 points210 points211 points 1 year ago (28 children)
This cracks me up. If you are so proud of who you are as a strong women who dont need no man, then why do you need makeup just to leave the house?
[–][deleted] 43 points44 points45 points 1 year ago (1 child)
The far more attractive girls are usually the ones that wear minimal makeup.
Then when you see them without makeup it's not shocking.

I would be happy if I could just figure out why women need to put on makeup to go to the goddamn gym.
On a side note, I would really like to know why anybody would take the makeup advice of the whores that work at Ulta. From the most beautiful to the most homely, every single girl in there looks like she was dragged face down through the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fudge pump. There isn't a single girl that works in that store that I would fuck without tying them face up in the bed of my pickup and running through the local car wash a half a dozen times.

It doesn't bother me if a woman wants to stay made up but the gym dolls are the ones I can't understand. Fresh new coat of makeup to workout. I just don't get it. You are there to sweat and not look your best.

I believe women wear makeup and all that to impress other women, not men.
[–]neversayneverdork 128 points129 points130 points 1 year ago (6 children)
'To impress other women' is what they say.
'To impress other women by their ability to harness male attention' is what they imply.
[–]CanuckinFL 10 points11 points12 points 1 year ago (1 child)
so let's be clear, the colloraries here are pretty obvious-
if she's banging you and bringing you around her social circle, it's to show off the new toy, to the other girls. If she's not bringing you around her social circle at all, it's because she's definitely into the sex, and is using the hell out of you.
It's that binary a system. If you're hubby, or boyfriend, on a date, etc, anywhere public she has to answer for-you're a social peg. Point Final.
If she keeps you under wraps, you're her dirty secret. It's all about them, fellas. It really so so so is not about us.
[–]neversayneverdork 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago (0 children)
A nice take on how expendable and non-unique male subjects can be in the eyes of the beholder.
When i mentionned male attention, i was not referrering to a singular individual. When it comes to attention seeking the usual strategy relies on quantity rather than quality (i.e numbers game).
This further enforces the idea that we are little more than unremarkable grains of sand in the dating pool. I precognize a certain modesty towards this scheme (we are not exceptional) yet to show contempt in response to egotistical behavior (such as demanding commitement to fix one's insecurities).
[–]kowbrandt 6 points7 points8 points 1 year ago (2 children)
Personally, I believe it’s a balance of both. They’re constantly in a rivalry with each other, and part of the reason they wear it is to attempt to one up the other girls by being “prettier”. The other is of course to increase chances of getting plowed
[–]neversayneverdork 13 points14 points15 points 1 year ago (1 child)
Competition without a goal makes no sense.
Why do women want to be 'pretty' ? Reflect on the question, do not rely on female answers and you will arrive to a logical conclusion.
[–]kowbrandt 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago (0 children)
I would say there is a goal, to feed their own ego
[–][deleted] 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago (0 children)
Its probably a bit of both. But in this context it doesnt really matter. Regardless of motivation to wear makeup, getting upset at the app is hypocritical if you claim to be a feminist.
[–]Endorsed Contributormallardcove 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago (3 children)
This is what it has always been about. Women primarily compete with other women to one-up other women, not to attract men.
When women get all dolled up with makeup, fancy outfits, expensive shoes and handbags, its not to attract men. It's to one-up other women. Hence why they lose their shit when another woman in the vicinity has the same outfit or bag or shoes.
They're competing with each other to see who's hotter, but that whole thing is nested inside of being attractive to men. The idea that they're doing it for men makes no sense to them because women aren't as visual as us. They need to meet and speak to a guy first before deciding they're doing to fuck him. So for the meantime, it's to compete with other women. But at the end of the day, it's for male attention (just the top percent of males).
Go to an all-female dorm room. Not a single one would be wearing makeup. None. Take away men, you take away makeup.

See you're onto something here I espouse, and it's not a happy conclusion.
Men, RP or BP or whatever, are almost always continually delusional from my perspective (oh hell I do it too) about how important we are to women. How preoccupying we are to them
I don't think we matter shit to them, really. Ever. So yeah, they try to impress other women. Not us.

Because most people do not get the difference between proximate and ultimate cause.
It is evopsych terminology, meaning, nature does not care WHY you do it, it cares THAT you do it.
Whatever you believe in your head when you do it is the proximate cause and it is of no importance as long as you do what it takes to survive and procreate , which would be the ultimate cause.

[–]samenrofringslikeLBJ 1 points1 points1 points 1 year ago [recovered]
I don't know if good looking is the right quality. A womans worst enemy is other women. Feminists hate and try to actively sabotage beautiful women that make a living off of their looks, like models. Hence why feminists crusade against supermodels and want it to be illegal to have bikini ads on billboards, unless of course you put some fat hag in a bikini, then it is empowering.

It's remarkably similar. Notice that in the undoctored no-makeup photo, she is not using a flash, because using a flash would further expose facial flaws. In her with-makeup photo, there is a flash being used, so her face looks understandably worse than in the no-flash photo.

We Used the App That Reveals What Women Look Like Without
Their Makeup on the Man Who Created It
Haha we know what he looks like without his makeup because MEN DO NOT WEAR LIES MAKEUP.
I wonder.... does the app have a slider for her age? Because the older she gets, the larger the lie ... err the bigger the difference.
Obviously female lying is defined as men's fault because err.... women look better with it on. To men. So that's... hang on... let me get this right.... somehow my fault.
[–]fromthecrypt8 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago (0 children)
The irony is that many women look better with minimal make-up on. Some of these bitches today look like Pennywise.
[–]Endorsed ContributorUrsusG 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago* (13 children)
My only beef with the app is that it doesn't do what it says: it doesn't digitally remove make-up from the photo, because that's technically impossible.
All it does is applies some filters with fake tones, blemishes, imperfections and wrinkles.
Remember that "ageing" website that was popular some years ago? You submit your photo and the site shows you how you might look when you're 60 or 80 etc. This is basically what MakeApp does. It fakes a look.
[–]RedPimpin 8 points9 points10 points 1 year ago (11 children)
agreed, its just a bunch of filter and of course we can't have a 1:1 presentation of women without makeup, still it manages to give you a extremely good idea and the hamstering proves that
[+]Endorsed ContributorUrsusG comment score below threshold-9 points-8 points-7 points 1 year ago (10 children)
But the fact that it's just a bunch of fake filters, not an actual make-up remover kinda legitimizes women's anger about this.
[–]rp_tsukaisute 8 points9 points10 points 1 year ago (4 children)
Hmm.. If they're using a trained deep learning algorithm, I don't think it's accurate to call these "fake filters." Rather, it's actually guessing what they'd look like without makeup based on the average effect of many true before/after filters, in an intelligent way. Which we couldn't have done 5 years ago. And 5 years from now some other program will do it much better. But the state of the art is awfully good.
Which is exactly what it's sold as.
[–]Endorsed ContributorUrsusG 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago (3 children)
If this is the case, then I might be wrong.
It would now be interesting to look under the hood of that app and see how it does its thing.

The description says:
MAKEAPP uses neural network technology to digitally add or remove makeup from any face.
MAKEAPP uses neural network technology to digitally add or remove makeup from any face.
There's widely available code in several public AI toolkits to already do this with things like painting styles (make my picture look like Van Gough, e.g.), so that's not nearly as complicated to do as it might sound. I just played around with it, and given the results (really very good, but I find it also aged a couple of 23yos I tried it on so they look 30. Which was also interesting), I'd bet they did it this way.

[–]RedPimpin 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago (1 child)
most men dont look so different at all so i'd dare to say the app still gives a very good idea, the womens anger is not about it not being a real makeup remover but its because they look like a zombie, the naturally hot girls also still look hot after going through the app
[–][deleted] 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago (0 children)
Exactly. When applied to men's faces, it doesn't make much of a difference.

Do you expect a hand and a baby wipe to reach out of the screen and physically remove the makeup?

On the other end of the spectrum, men should be outraged by women who use fake filters on snapchat/instagram for all their photos. I get a good laugh between their social media filter photos vs. in real life appearance, especially when all the photos are closeups of the face.
[–]CollaterLDamage 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago (0 children)
the real issue is that, things like snapchat and photoshop can pretty easily counter these filters.

I've checked out the app and I think it is too strong, i.e there's an example of the app being used on a guy and to be fair, it's not as bad as on the women, but it's definitely noticable; so it's not that accurate.
[–][deleted] 6 points7 points8 points 1 year ago (0 children)
It's not 100% accurate - that's impossible. But it really jolts us awake to just how intense of an effect makeup has on mis-representing their actual level of beauty.

Used it on a bunch of photos and think it's funny but needs polishing. It's not very accurate since it also assume to add blemishes and shadows even when there aren't any.
