Okay so I know this is kinda taboo but anyways.
Frida Kahlo: Not too easy on the eyes. I mean she’s got the lady-mo and the monobrow thing going on. She didn’t know where to put her blush or what shade lipstick would obviously suit her skin tone. Really, she’s a bit of a wreck. So this got me to thinking. What would have happened if her girlfriends had done the right thing and taken her to a beautician, (which clearly needed to happen)? I did a subtle re-paint over the top of her original self-portrait to “conceptualize” what it would have looked like if she had been whisked off to Beauty Works or the likes….I didn’t want to alter the integrity of the original painting too much. What do you reckon?
ok I found it
OH MY GOD GET THE FUCK OUT
a woman who doesn’t subscribe to the idealizations of beauty? welp, gotta go in and pluck and polish and completely bastardize every one of her independent thoughts and conscious decisions because eugh, how gross, how unladylike.
frida kahlo embraced her natural beauty and her ethnic roots and you really have no right to say that she should have been taken to an aesthetician because you don’t think that she’s attractive.
you say you didn’t want to alter the integrity of the original, but by feminizing and idealizing kahlo’s image that is exactly what you have done.
jesus fucking christ.
OP you have committed sacrilege. Sacrilege!
op clearly doesn’t know who she is
otherwise they would’ve never even touched the painting
is this how white ppl see frida? srsly?
this is literally one of the worst posts i’ve ever seen on tumblr
racist, misogynist hogwash. and there’s more of it on their tumblr. that whole “pretty girl” instructional thing is horrifying
#i hope frida’s ghost haunts you for eternity
OP, you are a Class A Idiot
