Did A Teen Magazine Put Fake Makeup On A Photo Of Justin Bieber? So NOT Cool!

Either Justin has been sampling some shades from his mom’s makeup case, or Brazilian teen magazine Todateen Star is guilty of getting a little Photoshop happy!

Somehow it seems unlikely that with the world watching him, Justin Bieber would decide to wear lipstick and eyeliner for the suspicious cover of Todateen Star. Sure, retouching is commonly used on celebs in magazines, but he looks like he’s about to compete in little girls’ beauty pageant!

The magazine issues the following response to The Huffington Post, translated from Portuguese:

“We could not help noticing your comments and tweets from the picture of Justin on the cover of Star Todateen. We would like to say that 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’s necessary to alter pictures of him. Natural beauty says it all, right?”

We’re all for prettying a celebrity up for a magazine cover, but this is going too far! Justin’s fans have spoken and they think he looks great as he is — no make up necessary!
