It appears that teen idol Justin Bieber got a full face of makeup — including smudged guyliner — for the November cover of Brazilian teen magazine Star Todateen.
How else to explain his powder-puff-perfect complexion, dewy lips, and eyes rimmed with a subtle touch of brown liner? We even spy a hint of pale blush on those cheekbones.
Star Todateen issued the following Photoshop denial to the Huffington Post, which translated it from Portuguese:
“We could not help noticing your comments and tweets from the picture of Justin on the magazine’s cover. We would like to say there was no change made in the area of the singer’s eyes. We had a technical problem that darkens certain areas of the photo.”
“We also want to say that all of us find Justin very naturally beautiful. We’d never think it necessary to alter pictures of him. Natural beauty says it all, right?”
It may not be as much of a “Photoshop Frankenstein nightmare” as actress Lindsay Lohan’s recent Complex magazine cover, but StyleList is sticking with our Bieber’s-been-beautified opinion.
