How incredible is this...

I can't believe I passed this up so many times because I thought it was another Cinderella story. This has been such an entertaining read! It's been so refreshing, and I have cried at the heart and love that shows through this! The discussion of beauty is nuanced and finally, FINALLY thinks about the impact of capitalism and patriarchy on "aesthetics". It's so, so clever to have so many types of art being discussed here, from photography to makeup to music. And I am continually delighted by how generous this story is to women -- nobody is stupid for wanting to wear makeup, to look pretty, and nobody is superior for going bare-faced. Even when something looks like a tropey, misogynistic catfight, we get to see so much more about everyone involved. Heewon's development is particularly fascinating; I'm grateful that she isn't the villain, even when she is. I think the author really cares about women, and I can feel that respect throughout this story. Also it's really, REALLY funny. I can't recommend this enough.

this manhwa uses the ugly duckling makeover/beauty show setting to make some pretty great observations about how badly society handles nonconformity in sexuality, gender roles, power dynamics, and more. it's funny, informative, and compelling.

I really like this webtoon because I often think about makeup and it’s power. I think it is possible to wear makeup purely for yourself, but usually it’s for other people. I know I look better with makeup but I feel worse with it on. (Mascara is uncomfortable etc.) I feel like makeup is a trap because if you start wearing it you feel like you’re not as pretty as you could be when you stop wearing it. It took a while but I’ve stopped wearing makeup and have learned to appreciate my face even without enhancement (plus it’s too much work). Anyways, this webtoon covers a lot about self-esteem and appearance and I appreciate that.
Also, I learned some stuff from this webtoon too about makeup!

I kinda judged the book by its cover and thought this is just another makeover story, but boy I was wrong. This is pretty much like a gag type comedy with a funny female lead that wants to change her "ugly" appearance. The male lead is not just some sparkly, handsome guy, he's just as funny as the female lead too.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
when the male lead removes his makeup, XDDD. I really wanna see his real face too
Definitely has a lot of potential, hope it still retains its humor as the plot thickens.
