About this Photo


Watching too many Makeup Tutorials Online is a comment on women’s vulnerability to the power of online trends and how this can turn them into comedic relief for others while they are unaware. Especially young women are very susceptible to copying what they see online, whether that be selfies sporting a ‘duck face’ or applying a thick layer of ill-matched makeup. For this photo, I let Cindy Sherman inspire me and I tried to show how women become the laughing stock of their surroundings as they take what they see in the media a few steps too far. While this may appear comical at first, we should remind ourselves that we have likely all seen a woman such as the one in the photo somewhere out in real life or online and we’ve chuckled to ourselves and wondered why she doesn’t realize that she looks silly.
