South Korean Girl Removes Makeup After 2 Years: Stunning Realization Ensues

Posted on January 31, 2012

Did you know you can have “makeup” permanently tattooed onto your skin to avoid the annoying habit of taking it off every night before you go to bed?

No one told 20-year-old Dal-mi Bae, who has received irreparable skin damage after wearing makeup every day for two years…without taking it off.

Discovering a love for makeup at the age of 14, Dal-mi Bae of South Korea religiously applied makeup to her face without ever taking it off.

“I wanted to look perfect at all time. I even slept with the makeup on.”

Adding insult to injury, she also wanted to get plastic surgery in a number of places.

Encouraged by her mother and thanks to a variety show, Bae was finally convinced by dermatologists to remove the makeup.

Once she had undergone a checkup, it was revealed that her skin looks twice as old as she really is.

    She looks like she’s mid 20s. Asian women don’t age. They turn 18 then stop aging till they hit like 60.

    I think that it is possible to wear make-up for years ALMOST nonstop,Everyone loves beautiful, but wrong approach might make us lose the beauty of the original, more harm than good.

      NovaEaton Yeah, i didn’t catch that. maybe she started wearing makeup at 14, but didn’t start wearing it to bed till she was 18. anyway she looks like some kind of grotesque barbie doll with her makeup on, or worse, a screwdoll.

    Meh, she doesn’t look that old. It’s probably just the picture. Plus, is she wearing makeup in the second picture? If not, that might explain the age thing a little.

      XSpectreGreyX She doesn’t look old at all in the 2nd pic, and  in the first one she can be any age coz all u  can see is a mask of makeup.

        tafrick Exactly. Her eyes look kind of tired, but that’s about the height of it. But apparently, she looks twice her age, so maybe it’s just a bad picture that made her look younger, but I doubt it. The first picture makes her look like a friggin’ doll, so of course you can’t discern her age from it. The second is of poor quality and she seemingly has NO make-up on at all, judging from how tired her eyes look.

    XSpectreGreyX   There are chemicals like methylparaben (carcinogenic) in some brands of make-up.  If she is 18 and aged 10 years, she does look 28 in her second pic.

    We all seem to have this big hangup about how we look on the outside, what is important is what we feel and express on the inside. people are so pre-occupied with looks,image,fashion,.. let it all go, everyone is beautiful in their own way.When you discover that you will be at peace with the World.

    Are you even real? You’re such a dumb ass oh my god. People who play video games are not psychos (which you can’t even spell) and girls who wear makeup are not wearing it because the media has fed it into their mind. We wear it because we like to. She should have known to take the make up off but she didn’t. Yes she’s a little ignorant but you’re much more so

    Chicho_loco Wow, you must be “loco” as mouldysushi said, you’re an idiot. Her mother encouraged her to take it off, not to leave it on. Pop culture may not be the “everything” but it certainly is good for a lot of things. This girl’s issue has nothing to do with “images” of people, just wanting to look good, you are making radical leaps based off NOTHING but YOUR own opinion. Also, boys are not brainwashed to play video games, like all games….it’s meant to be a FREAKING GAME!! Gasp, I know, a game that’s fun, people wanting to have fun, what is the world coming to right? No one, goes “phyco” lol over a game and shoots people, or anything like. You are the one brainwashed, but all the garbage the media spews forth like a toxic cloud, idiots like you are the problem, not make-up or video games, ignorance is the real issue here.

    @Chrissy McLoone No “fucking” isn’t a trashy word. That is your opinion and nothing more. In this case its actually an adverb. Possibly a fucking adverb, not sure. Fuck is the most versatile word in the English language, being able to be used as nearly every part of speech, depending on form and placement in a sentence.

    Chicho_loco I actually agree with you here. These guys are being ignorant in saying that girls don’t wear make-up because it’s the image they know they have to be, due to pop culture, the press, and the image that they think boys want. mouldysushirjiscrazy92

    So what about terrorists and criminals before video games, and women who wore make-up before proliferation of real-time media. And I suppose you say these things because you’re a blindly, ignorant and nisguided chrostian who thinks everyone else is wrong. I guess what i’m trying to say is you’re a stupid stupid bitch. And oh…Happy new year!

    @chicho_loco @HorridBorrid I question how people like you can handle yourselves, but you guys are the ignorant ones here. Yeah, what she did wasn’t the best idea. But girls don’t wear makeup because of the media, and you guys forgotten to mention girls like me- ones who never wear makeup. Maybe a little bit of blush for something formal but that’s about it unless you want to count my Halloween costumes. There are girls out there who were subtle makeup, heavy makeup, and everything in between, but they don’t do it because the media said “Hey, you’re ugly, try this product so and so wears!” They do it because they WANT to. Some might feel like they need it to be beautiful, but not EVERY girl is looking for it. To add on to this, guys wear makeup too, but don’t you DARE say it’s only gay guys. Any guy can go out and put on makeup, it’s not limited to one’s orientation
    As for video games causing violence, I’ll put it this way- If someone has only played the Harvest Moon series, does that make them violent? It’s like saying fictional characters shouldn’t be forced into a relationship that would never happen (Shipping fanart). They’re FICTIONAL. They have no feelings. They don’t care what you do because you know why? THEY DON’T EXIST. In this case a video game is meant to be what it was manufactured; to entertain. Video games don’t have feelings, they can’t talk, they don’t tell the violent kids “Hey, this and this happens in here, try it in real life!” What makes people violent is something critical affecting their life. Some are just emotionally unstable. Someone who plays video games doesn’t make them violent. And like above girls play video games too. There are violent girls out there.
    You two are the ignorant ones if you think girls want guys to like them for makeup or boys being violent over something past a screen. And the mother said she wanted her daughter to take it OFF. Not keep it on. In my personal opinion, the media that’s glorifying these stereotypes against the pop culture is what’s the problem here.
    Happy 2014!

    You guys cannot be seriously believing this. I am born and raised in South Korea and I can tell you, although South Koreans are guilty of obsession with looks, none of this story sounds even remotely true. The name is obviously fake for one thing, and if this ever happened, I would have been able to find a Korean source on the web. It’d have gone viral ages ago, believe me. South Korea is the most wired country in the world and they are not ashamed of some gossiping. This is a piece of stereotyping, racist shit and you are an idiot if you believe any of this.

    @Jacob Palomo Well, I suppose if she’s meant to look 12, and she looks 20 in her make-up-less photo, then yes, she does look double the age of what she’s meant to look like.
