A comment on the site says it promotes rape culture. I think the opposite. When men see how ugly some of these women are, they will be less likely to rape them.

Now we need an app that extrapolates dick pics from bulges.

All this app does is just throws in random blotches based on sheer guesswork, and change areas where obvious pigment's applied (lips/lids/cheeks) to the same color as the rest of the face. It doesn't actually show what any specific woman actually looks like without makeup. These women may look a lot like their after images, or not even close (much better OR much worse).

Obviously yes, there is no way to a show what any specific woman actually looks like without makeup. However, I would say it does a pretty good job.

My best guess is that they run the image through some type of basic facial recognition (you'd need that to pinpoint things like the mouth and eyes) then it runs some basic photoshop-type filters based on what it finds:

  1. it desaturates the obvious pigment from lips/cheeks like you said
  2. it removes the "black" from around eyes. So eyeliner is removed but it also tends to completely remove eyelashes
  3. it tends to "thin" (or create patchiness) in the eyebrows from what I've seen. I'm not actually sure what it's doing there
  4. it increased the contrast on the skin. This is your "random blotches." Whether fair or not, any anomaly in the skin texture is brought out by the increased contrast

sheer guesswork

not something computers really do

I'm guessing you're generally right though. It'd be interesting to see objective no makeup vs makeup vs makeup + makeapp comparisons to see how well it works. I suspect few prominent made-up women complaining about the app will be willing to honestly submit no-makeup photos for testing the app though.

Chelsea looks like some sort of monster. It must be the (((Webb Hubble))) blood
