Well, it is obvious that there are lots of great looking women in Hollywood for example but how much of that beauty have these women paid for? I think that when we look at images of very attractive men and women, we should look at them critically and not just except them at face value. I personally think its ok to have plastic surgery if it enhances someones looks/life. I have never had any and most likely never will, but I am happy with the way I look. As for the issue of it being fake...of course it is. People that have had PS have looks that are fake, meaning that they did not/ would never have looked the way they do without some help. I personally find it ridiculous when people deny they had some work done, whats the point? I also find the colored contacts and hair extentions fake as well and have never used either. But those changes are only temporary and some people find it fun to constantly change their look. I really have no problems with enhancing ones look. As for makeup, I think that it can really showcase a persons features and it is sort of like clothing in that you can experiment with different styles. I really do not find it to be "fake" because in the average person it really does not do much to alter ones looks.
