We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
I was curious so I sharpened it (only sharpened it btw), when I clicked back to compare the original I thought the original was a mistake I’d made because it was so smoothed out. Edit: I’m curious after sharpening if they use those “nosejob” inserts for selfies, at first I thought it might be the end of a piercing but that didn't make any sense
Trinity can actually do make up, I followed them awhile ago and watched them grow into being a model/starting T! If Rin put in effort, tried to be professional, and networked instead of having their sloppy manager and husband team begging for invites to makeup parties they could at least do editorials. Jude Karda shoops to hell and back and still has managed to get a foot in that door, just because they wanted to (And I don't have anything nice to say about them but they did the work to succeed at their aspirations). Rin is whining about not winning the lottery when they don't buy tickets. It’s useless and frankly annoying knowing all they probably do all day is sit around doodling on their face but they think they have the work ethic or drive to pursue a professional modelling career.
I’m sure it took them that way when their ”nose makeup” got picked up online as a ”trend”, I feel they have the sense that the more stuff they do that is over the top the more they'll get featured on articles and gain interest. Seeing their inspirations really drives it home they are most inspired by clown makeup looks, by which I mean they have no original ideas and just tag people as inspirations while they attempt to recreate the designs in a half-assed way.
It seems like they're also one of those people who doesn't like how they look in upright photos, like those Myspace people who choose upside down selfies.
It irritates me that they way they draw it seems to lend to ”soft yellow-facing” as its been called, they say they're Mexican openly thank god but they use a Japanese name while taking pictures using expressions/makeup that hints like they are trying to look like they have monolids. It's not serious enough to be all, ”They racefake” or anything like that but you just can tell they're a weeb who feels validated in a way when they're considered ”maybe asian”. They'll be lucky to not head down a road with Kenna levels of narcissism and fetishism. They literally chose their name because they cosplayed Rin, and they used to have all their Tumblr links in Japanese. I think they just think as long as they try and appear a certain way while saying they're Mexican its fine?
I just don’t get it? I don’t understand the inspiration to idea? Its like they take an idea and run it through a clown filter? It still bothers me they don’t even put the effort in to fill in the patchy makeup, they physically could take a couple more minutes and make the wings on the “eyes” a solid black. You can literally make out the lines they drew individually because they’re all very dry and cheap looking, they didn’t even bother to do the same number of “bottom lashes” in makeup on the look. They could have took the effort to achieve anything from the “inspiration” at all. There’s no realistic eye kaleidoscope imagery, no cool-toned red lipstick and pointed cupid’s bow, the eyes below aren’t even drawn to be upside down-it probably took them less than 5 minutes to pump out this ketchup and mustard spill. I don’t usually care to go in on how distasteful I think their makeup is, but I would be so offended as an artist if a grown adult drew a stick person and stuck it up beside a portrait in my gallery. No respect at all.
It reminded me of Meitu!! Which has those automatic filters that change the face shape (I’ll include a before/after using that for people to see of a Cara D pic because she's the first person I thought would be easy to find haha) and an app by Meitu called BeautyCam where you can literally just straight up change your features. I thought of beautycam at first when I saw the softening, there’s other similar apps as well like CandyCam (Edward Avila is a fan of that one). BeautyCam feature examples from Original to Most Edited, it’s easier than anything to move that slider.
The first thing I thought was ’Are they editing themselves to look like Gass.y?’ I think they’re growing increasingly insecure about their nose and the comparison is mostly coincidence because Rin wants to have similar features.
People will be mad over editing regardless imo, but the way I see it their face is supposed to be an ad for the product and they’re not doing their job well. It’s like how food companies used shaving cream instead of whipped cream for ads so it looks better and sells more. I’m not saying one’s more right than the other, but more that seeing the brands fall flat and be all uneven and muddy makes me want to not purchase it kind of deal. The reason i brought it up at all is because they edited their face but didn’t clean up the edges of their makeup, and I’m wondering why.
I honestly have no issue with the ”looks” because they’re just gonna do whatever anyways but what does bother me is they don't edit the colours. The makeup looks patchy, faded, and it doesn't look pigmented. It looks dusty, like chalk. The clown nose blush and facepaint is embarrassing, but IG they think maybe at least one will end up alright? I associate MILK with dewy looks, and there’s no ”healthy skin” look to their makeup. Their hair looks absolutely fried and dry, absolutely crispy. I'm sure they could pull off a shaved head look, and honestly it’d be better at this point. If you have access to editing tools as a ”MUA Instagrammer” or whatever they're going for it really makes me grimace to see they blur their nose into their face but don't smooth or polish their hair or makeup. Insecure about the wrong things.
The bedhead was better, the bowl cut isn’t doing it. I wish Rin lurked and took tips like other people so I could tell them to do a faux-hawk to save their hair until it grows out and they can layer it.
Edit: Their eyebrows are the wrong shade of pink compared to their hair, might just be a facetune mistake and eyebrows don't have to match but the base tone seems more cool compared to the warmer hair Dollar store bags of crafting pom-poms though
They really need a private account, or a diary or SOMETHING. There are quirky relatable posts, but then there's just airing your dirty laundry constantly (Joke or not). They seem like someone who needs to get out more, or make some friends. When I think of influencers I think even the bad ones and ones with the worst personality/attitudes keep their personal impulsive posts and vagues to Twitter. They’re so...boring.
A lot of people were requesting him to cover the situation on a YouTube post he made with a poll asking if he should cover azelia/grimes, or other options of people’s drama (myself included ha ha, I can't say I'm a huge fan of Edwin when he gets carried away with some stuff but he's more fun to watch than other YouTubers who cover that kind of stuff) even though he didn't mention GFs before! It was kind of interesting to see people interested in it before their third (?) apology. I'm really hoping he doesn't play Devils Advocate, but who knows.
This whole situation is very, “You’ve made your bed, now lie in it” and I don't feel any sympathy for the follower drop as people learn more because it's just a direct consequence of their own actions. The bullied and lied with a follower count and supporters as the wind in their sails, they then swept it under the rug and ran around signal virtuing for the virtual world while in private it seems like the story they give friends and loved ones is ”They are out to ruin me because they hate me, and I've already apologised and it should be over! This is so immature of them for doing this to me!”. Nobody in their loved ones is holding them accountable, in fact Ish is totally defending and coddling them.
He sees it as dragged out? How awful to even think along that line of thought let alone put it out there for the world to read. Abuse, bullying, and having it blasted on social media or publicly time after time is going to impact someone for their entire life. Rin’s circle is sinking him just as much as he has himself. I don’t think they have realized they’re in as deep as they think they are because the people in their life are brushing it off as past drama thinking it will blow over. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that this isn't damage control. I've seen people who have done equal or worse damage put more effort into a show of empathy than this group. They could all at least pretend. What a bunch of narcissists.
Maybe the writer didn’t want to have to bear watching their videos, besides that the pictures definitely highlight how Rin looks naturally and not how they want to be seen looking like some airbrushed anime character. It’s really uncomfortable to think of how they might see their desired self as but I’m glad they aren’t Scarebrat 2. I don’t believe they make any actual attempt to racefake but I have a feeling they like getting mistaken for being another race that lines up with the name they chose. Are they actually a MUA, btw? It’s weird to me how they seem to get their foundation right, then everything else is up to luck. I was surprised to see their Milk event look! I wonder if Milk had example faces drawn up for looks to use since a couple were similar. I think equally as shocking was their outfit. Maybe if Rin’s team put in half as much effort into preparing their payload to look like they’re at an event (Even asking to borrow clothes from friends instead of having Rin there looking like a kid dressed for church hitting up the facepaint booth at the local fair) it could have actually distracted a bit from their rapidly deteriorating image. I think it’s fair to hold ”influencers” to at least some standards. I know that’s harsh because there wasn’t anything wrong with their clothes themselves but they have no enviable factor as an Insta star and I think that’s important. Hope that makes sense! I guess what I mean to say is, Rin seems to want to sell themselves over selling makeup. They’re addicted to the popularity high and fantasy they grew up on from Tumblr and they’ve essentially stranded themselves with a floundering fanbase in another state with no obvious backup plan. I’m not sure they had savings or have savings between the two of them, but if they are that lost I either see them going home or living with their Manager and husband to try and scrape up work in the area. Also, fingers crossed nobody reports the manager’s husband to cybercrimes because he’s beyond being a weird bully to doxxing people?
It’s the ol’ bait and switch. Rin is a trans person of colour at the same time as they are a rape apologist and bully who’s getting their just desserts. Not one of their fans has empathy for anyone but the people they like to support, and can't seem to fathom the horror of watching someone who helped make your life a living hell getting attention and sponsors etc. Imagine following a makeup company on insta and maybe one day their picture appears on your feed? Yeah Rin and their followers don't really seem to ”get” how life works or how to interact properly with others, probably an unfortunate side effect of growing up being online all the time in toxic environments that encouraged their bad habits/traits. Unrelated, but what's really stood out to me is how unprofessional the husband is. What a volatile person! His name is associated with his actions, he seems to forget that. His entire name. Rin’s manager should have scolded him a long time ago because this childish man could sabotage so much for both Rin and the manager. If I was anywhere in Daniel’s circle is pretend he didn't exist. How childish and weird! Additionally, for nonbinary people there is no set ”look”. Nonbinary people aren't supposed to subscribe to gender stereotypes or norms so it seems kind of like beating a dead horse at this point to call him out on dressing ”like a girl”. If nonbinary people physically transitioned even to dress more androgynous/masculine it’d most likely be down to preference. It doesn't make sense (in my opinion” to go ”this is nonbinary but this isn’t” in any way of visual representation because it’s all supposed to be categorised. They would be changing their outfits to please others, not to make themselves feel good in their skin. It's different from GNC in that way, as far as I know. So Rin has the luxury of not having to move through the real world without being labeled as ”trans” by strangers, but at the same time nobody wants to call them their pronouns and as long as people feel they're ”a trender” they're going to be subject to both regular misogyny and also scrutiny online. Either way they can delete at any point. I e-mailed Milk a while ago, it really shows how little they care to even attempt to damage control the situation. I'm never going back to them because they're not even trying to say they're handling the situation or are supporting Rin still. Gross. Apologies for the length.
I think they will as long as they get what they want. I have a feeling while they went to Japan some money came their way for food and stuff from family. It makes me shake my head to see them posting baby pictures and all that, however. Imagine growing up and seeing an archived video about how your relative told your mom you would be all fucked up when you came out. They don't understand consequences and they never will because everyone is just a "hater" and they can just turn away. It's sad. I feel one day they'll make a grave mistake online that really ruins their reputation, a lot of fans were already lost by the dreads stunt. I don't think they have any goals past getting insta likes and getting wasted. Jude needs help but as long as they have instagram to validate them, they won't seek or receive any. I wish they would receive therapy as a condition of living back with their family. Also I believe Brad might be a project, at the end of the day saying they visually don't belong together is a bit mean. Brad looks like a normal dude even if the stuff he says can come off weird or clingy, it's not out of the norm for a typical guy and Jude is getting their benefits from the relationship (chauffeur, friend, supporter, photographer, wallet, the list goes on). What I mean by project is if Jude is addicted to weight loss, helping someone lose weight is going to be fun for them. It's also enabling of ED traits, someone who always wants to work out and eat healthy to lose weight.
