Hillary without makeup - She still looks gorgeous!

Hillary Clinton No Makeup Photo: Secretary Of State Laughs Off Comments On Her Looks

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/08/hillary-clinton-no-makeup_n_1500423.html?ref=mostpopular

Has anything Hillary Clinton done lately not gone viral?

Secretary Clinton's first Internet renaissance came when the now-defunct "Texts from Hillary" Tumblr circled furiously around the web, culminating in the secretary herself participating in the site.

And now, a pic of Clinton without makeup -- and wearing glasses -- has set off another dose of Internet fervor.

Drudge Report and other websites posted a picture of Secretary Clinton "au naturel" on Monday, showing Clinton speaking in Bangladesh wearing black frame glasses and what seems to be no makeup (except for some little lip gloss in some of the photos). The Washington Post remarked that in the "refreshing" photo, Clinton "looked like a schoolgirl." (Fox News, on the other hand, says the secretary looks "tired and withdrawn" in the images.)



People are criticizing her looks?



I think she looks amazing - if I was 65 years old I hope I look that good. What's beautiful about Hillary is you can tell she would rather age gracefully than to waste her money on facelifts and botox. But even without it she still doesn't look 65 years old to me, she looks to be about early 50s

20. Society says women must look young and beautiful. It's annoying to see it reinforced here so often.

But this is one of the earliest lessons we learn.

6. Oh noes!

She looks fabulous! Haters are gonna hate...it is in their DNA. The SoS shows up without any makeup on, GOOD FOR HER! IMO, dam TIME people wake up from the delusion TVEE puts them under. This is how a REAL person looks folks, just like the rest of us!

IMAGINE! She is a person like the rest of us!

Just one of the reasons I voted for her.

She is the real deal.

8. Must have been a slow news day? Nothing important must have happened.

Media love this kind of story because audiences click on it. Heck, we all just clicked it. She looks great. Make up is a huge scam anyways, I seriously don't know why anyone bothers. And speaking of Fox "News", sometimes their news anchors, some of them, they seem kind of clownishly and conspicuously made up. What do feminists think about make up? Is it a sign of subservience to the patriarchy? I think so. I'm a guy btw, one of the male oppressors. Is fox news trying to sell women and girls the idea that they need to wear a lot of makeup to be attractive? Is there such a thing as the makeup-media-industrial complex? These are just some questions I have. Hillary looks great and actually it shouldn't matter at all, whether she is secretary of state or applying for a job at walmart.

12. She's wearing glasses too. She's nearsighted.

If you look at pics of her when she was young, she was wearing coke bottle glasses. I know. I have the same problem.
I have also worn contacts on and off over the years.

She has obviously been wearing contacts ALL THE TIME in public for decades, and it gets old to hassle with putting them in and taking them out, especially on a tight schedule and a stressful job.

People who do not depend on their glasses to see where they are going would insist that her glasses are ugly. Those people do not understand that a person with that sort of vision would have to wear glasses to navigate.

My glasses are either on my face, or within arm's reach on the night stand when I am sleeping. I can see a lot better in contacts, but I can't read the damn fine print on everything while I'm wearing them.

So I think it's great that she's wearing a bit of lipstick, no other makeup, and glasses so she can SEE, not to offend some arbitrary fashion critic.

15. I'm her age and don't wear make up

It itches like crazy. Sometimes I think of all the money I've saved by avoiding makeup, most hair products, drycleaning and smoking. When I want my publicity photos to look good, I just send them to my son, the webgeek, photoshop expert, for a little environmentally friendly digital face lift.

16. Hey remember when Kissinger went around without makeup on?

Ugh. How disgusting. And then Ed Muskie hardly wore any make-up at all through the entire Iran Hostage Crisis! No wonder the Democrats lost that election. But really it all goes back to that skeez Thomas Jefferson. I'll bet George Washington told the country to "avoid foreign alliances" in his resignation speech just because he was embarrassed about Jefferson carrying out his diplomatic duties without wearing even a dab of rouge on his cheeks.

19. Hillary has no need for makeup.

She looks utterly gorgeous without any! IMO she actually looks better now than she's looked in a long time. Those photos show a happy, relaxed, natural beauty with her own style and grace.
