Should Makeup Ads be Banned?Thu, 25 Oct 2012

It’s kind of crazy because brands spend MILLIONS of dollars on these ads, and some of them just get kicked to the curve! I’m not sure how I personally feel about the over-photoshop allegations that land most of these ads banned, but I DEFINITELY believe if a ad is not representing a product right, it should be banned. At the same time, I’ve worked behind the scenes for brands and TRUST me, most of the products they use are NOT from the brand and if it’s an ad for mascara you better believe there are some insanely long false lashes there to really “show” off how great the mascara is. No matter what brand it is, they use whatever products they want, from the brand and not from the brand! So if everyone is doing this, should beauty ads just be banned all together? I love that Makeup Forever Ad that came out years ago that had no photoshop! I’m sure they still used a mix of products, but at least the photoshop was out!
