Appendages of all kinds have been prevalent in society for a long time. Stretching back to France’s King Louis VIII’s beloved wigs in the 17th century, right up to more recent ones like Heather Mills’ prosthetic leg, and hair extensions and false eyelashes. The latter items have often been seen stuck to the head of British reality TV star Jessica Wright.
Naturally, my curiosity was piqued by the idea of Jessica Wright without makeup which, initially, seemed about as conceivable as Dolly Parton donning a pair of overalls to join death metal act Slipknot.
The thing is, looking at the image, it was a lesson in futility asking a female cast member of ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ (‘TOWIE’) to pose ‘makeup-free’, considering their penchant for semi-permanent makeup (including tattooed eyebrows), year-round spray tan and eyelash extensions. ‘Cat Man’ Dennis Avner might have been a better candidate.
