Do you ever wish you could just make a couple minor adjustments to your face without having to go under the knife? Well, I have the perfect solution for you. For those of you who are not familiar with the “power of makeup,” it’s extraordinary how simple objects like brushes and colored powder can ultimately transform the structure of your face in a matter of minutes.
Makeup is utilized to enhance the features of your face but is also recognized as an art form. It can get very technical, considering that there are certain techniques for brush strokes. Colored substances are brushed across living canvases; a person’s bare face. Take your eyelid, for example, if you apply multiple colors, the colors need to smoothly transition from one color to the next.
The liquid or powdery formulas need to naturally blend in with your face, otherwise, your face can look like a complete blotchy mess. So, don’t forget to blend, blend, blend! Some people are just phenomenally skilled in the art form, to the extent that they can even transform someone’s face and make them look completely unrecognizable. Absurd, right? Here are before and after photos of numerous stars’ makeup transformation from “other” industries. You won’t believe your eyes.
26 Samantha Saint
Who is the pretty bombshell blonde in the photo? Samantha Saint is an extremely popular erotic model and actress with nearly 17 million profile hits. Her channel harbors lots of traffic from visitors, ranking as one of the top 121 channels in the entire world and is one of the top 57 channels in the U.S.
Oh, did I also mention that she was involved in a scandal with the former executive of the one and only Disney company and the chairman of the well known Hollywood entertainment company called Miramax? The former executive and chairman was caught in a leaked dirty film with Saint. Saint informed the public that she was paid to co-star in a sex-tape during the allegations. When the company was informed about their executive’s dirty deeds, he immediately resigned. I’m not done with all the surprises here, take a look at her before and after makeup transformation!
25 Alex Ford
Whoa, am I looking at the same person? Photographed in the corresponding photo is Miss Alexa Ford, an erotic model, and actress in the adult film industry. Would you have guessed that this actress attended a Catholic school back in the day? Wait, there’s more. This star was once a member of the National Honor Grade Society in grade school and previously attended a nursing school.
She was introduced to the adult film industry when she worked as a stripper for bachelor parties and then transitioned to nude modelling. It’s obvious that the makeup has a substantial effect on Alexa’s face. Her skin is more uniform, her eyes pop out with the heavy makeup, and her blemishes have disappeared. Would you attribute this to the “power of makeup?”
24 Larkin Love
This female’s blue hair isn’t the only thing that stands out in the photo, it’s her makeup transformation that catches our eye. Larkin Love previously worked at a computer lab fixing computers. Her career started when she was 20 years old and working at as a stripper. She made her big debut in the adult film industry after nude modelling. Her previous before photo, showing her bare face looks nowhere similar to her after photo.
Her eyes appear to have more of a bold black look and her metallic blue eyeshadow compliments the color of her hair. If Larkin was walking down the street with her bare face, would you even recognize her? Once again, makeup has triumphed in completely transforming people into someone completely different. I’d like to meet her makeup artist.
23 Annika Amour
Who is this burning angel? Her stage name is Annika Amour. She is an actress and nude model and has been in the adult film industry for six years. Under all that makeup, she looks nothing close to the second photo in the makeup transformation. In the before photo, her midnight black hair barely reaches her shoulders. The after photo introduces the element of hair extensions, in addition, the layer of makeup.
Her hair in the after photo appears now to be mid-length and is an electric blue color. She’s hardly even recognizable considering that it seems like her hair grew a good 5 inches and her skin tone is a much lighter color than her natural skin tone. Who knew that you could change the length and color of your hair in a matter of minutes as well?
22 Riley Reid
Do you ever wish your blemishes can just instantly disappear? Riley Reid’s transformation serves as a prime example for eliminating these unwanted features with makeup. Riley Reid is an adult film star and started the lucrative career at the age of nineteen after working as a stripper for a few months. She majored in psychology at a university in Florida and initially aspired to pursue a teaching career.
The transition from becoming a school teacher to an adult star is quite unconventional. In the first photo, you can see the apparent blemishes on her face. The after photo on her right gives you a glimpse of the powerful effects of makeup, eliminating her undesired oily complexion. Her green eyes are more alluring with the dark eyeshadow and her eyebrows appear to be more full and are shaped evenly.
21 Rachel Starr
It is apparent that the adult film industry has certain demands for appearances. The industry prefers made-up and more flawless features versus transparent natural features. Starr started engaging in sexual encounters beginning at the age of thirteen with females. Her first experience with sexual intercourse that was involved with a man happened when she was fourteen. She was then discovered by an actor who recruited her into the industry. Referring to the first photo, without makeup, Rachel’s hair barely goes past her shoulders.
In contrast, the after photos introduce a more fair complexion, even skin tone, dark eyeshadow to increase the intensity of the eyes, and long eyelashes to finish the made-up look. While comparing the before and after photo, her skin tone has drastically changed, transitioning originally and naturally to from a light tone to a darker tone. It is apparent that lip gloss was applied to her lips to provide an effect of enlarged lips.
20 Nikki Benz
Prior to Nikki Benz’s career in the industry, she worked as a swimsuit model and stripper. How was she introduced to the field? Well, she actually personally emailed her an adult director to jumpstart her career. Referring to the first photo in the left corner, we see Nikki’s pre-stage look. Her face is completely bare and her eyebrows are somewhat sparse. While looking at the photos start from the left, the middle, and to the right, we can see the transformation step by step.
With the wave of magic from the makeup brush wand, we can see her unbelievable transformation. In the second photo, her eyebrows are fully filled in and shaped evenly, her lips appear to be fuller considering that they are now covered with a shade of pink lip gloss, and she has elongated eyelashes that were not as apparent as before. In addition, her facial skin tone is more even throughout the entire surface of her face, and her cheekbones also look more rosy and sculpted.
19 Misty Stone
Misty stone is a brown eyed beauty with luxurious locks of curly hair. As an adult star and nude model, it is expected that she would apply an abundant amount of makeup to meet the industry’s standards. She started her career in the industry at the young age of 20 and has started in more than 300 films. She is also recognized as the “Halle Berry” of the industry. Let’s compare the before and after photos side-by-side. In the before photo, her face is completely naked and natural.
She appears to have darkened areas under her eyes and her skin tone is not uniform: there are various darkened areas and lighter ones. In contrast, after applying a full face of makeup, we can see she looks nothing like she did before in the first photo. The after photo displays the makeup artist’s exemplary skills, implementing a touch of pink on her cheekbones to appear as if she has natural blush, fully shaded and shaped eyebrows, brown and metallic hues of eyeshadow to make her eyes pop, long eyelashes, and lips covered in gloss to make her lips bigger.
18 Sarah Peachez
Sarah seems more peachy in the second photo right? Sarah Peachez started as an actor in the adult film industry as the age of sixteen years old. In the first photo in the left corner, Sarah’s hair is untamed and there appears to be a bit on the frizzy side. Her skin appears to have blemishes here and there. She possesses a set of eye bags and sparse eyelashes. Now let's compare the after photo. Obviously, her makeup artist is quite skilled in refining the features of her face.
Her eyebrows initially in the first photo were extremely sharp, whereas in the second photo her eyebrows have softer edges and curves. In addition, her overall skin tone in the before photo was more of a pinkish red tone. We could see she was experiencing some forms of acne prior as well. Her made-up face exposes a lighter skin tone, sculpted cheekbones, dark eyeshadow to that create a sharp effect around her eyes, eyelashes, and voluptuous curly blonde hair.
17 Anikka Albrite
Can you guess this stars previous occupation? Let me guess, stripper? Anikka Albrite does not fit the typical early career of a star; she did not start out her career as a stripper. Anikka actually was a former lab technician who double-majored in molecular biology and business. Shocker, right? Who would have guessed? Anikka in the before photo, which is in the top right corner, shows her bare and natural face. Her hair looks unkempt and you can see she has some blemishes scattered throughout her face.
Once the makeup artists work their magic, she looks completely different! Her long blonde hair is now arranged into beachy and wavy curls. Her dark smokey and shimmery eyeshadow gives her more of a bold look, sharpening the features of her eyes. In addition, her skin appears to be blemish free. How in the world did she make her blemishes disappear? With the help of foundation!
16 Nikki Hearts
Nikki Hearts is an adult film star and the owner of a queer production company. Her before photo displays her natural features which include her sparse eyebrows. Her short hair is swept to the side in the before photo. After a few touch ups, such as eyebrow powder, foundation, brown hues of eyeshadow, and lip gloss, Nikki has transformed into a different person. Her makeup transformation clearly gives her a more alluring and bold look, and also seems to expose her sensual side as she proceeds to pose for the camera.
Even in a matter of minutes, her eyebrows are more full, thick and alluring. Her skin tone is more even and seems to be a lot lighter than her natural skin tone, eliminating her natural rosy complexion. The lip gloss has provided an enhanced effect on her lips, and her hair is brushed towards the front of her face. Does makeup provide the same effect on your confidence levels? It seems to have brought out a different side of Nikki versus her demeanor in the photo with her natural complexion.
15 Karmin Karma
The stunning pink haired adult actress is known as Karmin Karma in the adult film industry. Karmin grew up in a small town in Michigan. She experiences her first sexual encounter at the young age of fourteen. Can you guess her first job? You would assume it would be somewhere along the lines of the adult film industry, but her first job actually was with Subway. Her career in the industry skyrocketed after she worked as a webcam girl and stripper.
Comparing the image on the top right to the image furthest to the left and the second image on the bottom right, Karmin looks like a completely different person. Before the full face of makeup and hair extensions, Karmin appears to have some acne, freckles, and darker areas under her eyes. In a matter of minutes, Karmin’s transformation can be attributed to her false eyelashes, pink hair extensions that have drastically increase the length of her former shoulder length hair, foundation to even out her skin tone, dark smokey eye shadow to accentuate her eyes, and styled pink hair. Her new look is drastically different from her natural look, and if it was not for the bold pink hair, we would probably have a hard time identifying whether the person in the before and after photos are the same individual.

Once Proxy is covered in a full face of makeup, she looks a lot older than she does with her natural look. Crazy how makeup can add years to your face, right?
