Michelle is loath to put makeup on the others, saying that she doesn't know how. Tiffany and Lluvy try to encourage her, but she has none of it. Naima interviews that Michelle is always in competitive mode. She adds that her dad used to get marks on his face when he was stressed, so maybe Michelle just needs to relax. Michelle tries to put eyeshadow on Lluvy, and then declares in a serious manner that she can't do makeup. Tiffany tells her to chill, and interviews that no one else knew how to do makeup either, but that at least they were having fun. Tiffany says that Michelle claims to be a perfectionist and hard on herself, but Tiffany thinks that Michelle's problem is deeper than that. We get a brief slo-mo of Michelle scrunching up her nose, and looking for all the world like she walked out of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video. I'm sure watching this is really going to do wonders for her self esteem.
Jay looks at the girls with their finished faces. He notes that Lluvy looks great and natural. Tiffany takes credit, and then Lluvy says, "And Michelle." Aww, Lluvy is nice. Michelle is off in a corner, skulking. Dude, just quit being such a freakshow and go to the doctor. Jay says that Lluvy looks fresh, natural, and soft. Jay says Noelle is too pale and looks sickly. Noelle tells us that she can only keep up with the world of fashion by reading magazines during her lunch break at work, because at home she's busy taking care of her miracle baby. Noelle looks about a million times better with straight hair, incidentally. Christina did Naima's makeup, which Jay seems to like until he learns that they didn't use any foundation. Idiot. Meanwhile, Michelle skulks in a corner, looking monstrous. Because of this, Christina appears nice and pretty in comparison. Jay reiterates that the lesson of the day is that go-see makeup doesn't look like you're wearing makeup. So we're to believe that his orange skin tone was the work of God?
In the van going home, Tiffany tells Michelle that sometimes, Michelle scares the hell out of her. Michelle says that she's a perfectionist and kicks herself all the time. Keenyah says that Michelle beats herself up over any activity that they have to do, and that now that she's having the scary face issues, she's starting to feel ugly as well. She's just starting? Well, good for her for maintaining the delusion for eighteen years. Someone tells Michelle that her face issue is getting worse, and she says it is and looks gross. And then, there is footage of Michelle during an interview in which she looks so entirely horrendous that I can't help but feel kind of bad for her. She has the awful blonde hair with the roots, and those yellow teeth, and open sores all over her face, and she's been crying so her eyes are totally glassy and the extended area around her nose is all red, and there is maybe snot trickling out of it as well. Probably green snot if you look up close. She says, "I've always wanted to feel gorgeous and beautiful. But then I'll go and look in the mirror and it's like, my nose is too big, my skin's not healthy. And I'm looking at everyone else around me. I look nothing like them." Perhaps she could consider moving to the Planet of the Undead if she's worried about blending in. Commercials.
