One thing that the Real Housewives phenomenon has taught us is that women should not be afraid of makeup! As a matter of fact, makeup is our friend! Women like Nene Leakes, Adrienne Maloof, and Teresa Giudice all prove that a little makeup can go a long way! Let’s be honest! Aside from their big personalities would we, the viewers, really take a second look had they not been bathed in makeup galore? Probably not! However, makeup artists and cosmetic companies alike can boast that they played a huge part in the new “Housewives” frenzy because they helped create the divas behind the madness. They have shown the world that anyone can take an unknown, add a little makeup magic and create beauty! After all, that’s what makeup is supposed to do anyway, right?
