There’s a new makeup removing app called MakeApp, and it seems to be causing quite the controversy on social media. The app allows you to apply makeup to a person that appears on a picture you might have on your phone, but it can also remove it from them.
People all over internet are calling for it to be banned. Women are swarming the app with a 1 star review and calling for it to be removed. Famous sites like Teen Vogue and Pop sugar call it creepy and problematic. It’s quite a big deal.
The app uses an algorithm to determine what someone’s face can look without using makeup. Sometimes, it adds wrinkles which the developer of the app Ashot Gabrelyanov hopes to fix.
One comment in the app store reads: “Why are some men mad that women wear makeup why/how is it affecting them why must they try to interfere with women just leave us alone god?”
“sorry that y’all are too dumb to figure out that women don’t naturally have purple eyelids” reads another.
Here’s how celebrities look without makeup according to the app.
#1 Taylor Swift
#2 Mika Brzezinski
#3 Hillary Clinton
#4 Jennifer Lawrence
#5 Ashot Gabrelyanov
In other words, the developer of the app himself!
