"Actually I'd go further: You should wear makeup. We’re in a tough economy that rewards youth and beauty. We live in a world constructed of artifice — where not only magazine covers but even snapshots are now retouched, filtered, presented in the best light possible. You might admirably, justifiably recoil from this trend, you might yearn for a time when people had no trouble accepting a man for what he really looked like. But if there ever was such an age, it's gone. We live in a Photoshop world. Think of makeup as a real-world digital-effects system. The foundation airbrush is like Photoshop for your face — armed with this gun, you can trick the world into loving you."
