Wow. As a special effects make-up artist who works with silicone (for prosthetics and fake body parts) I was expecting a completely different thread. :)

As a make-up artist, I absolutely disagree with the thought that any attempt to make a person more beautiful with make-up will surely fail.

It is certainly possible to use make-up to create highlights and shadows which can effectively "sculpt the face." I can change the features of a face (thin or broaden the bridge of the nose, raise cheekbones, etc.) and still give the person a natural look.
