An Algerian man is reportedly suing his own wife for fraud after seeing her without her makeup on. "The groom told the judge that he could not recognize his wife after she washed the make-up off her face," a court source told Emirates 247. "He said he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with make-up before their marriage." Apparently, when he saw the barefaced look, he was like:
"He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before their marriage, but when he woke up in the morning and found that she had washed the make-up off her face, he was frightened as he thought she was a thief."
He is suing her for a little over $20,000 in damages for "psychological suffering."
We have so many questions. First of all, how had he not seen her without makeup on before? We totally get it, for the first few dates, you make sure your makeup is on fleek because you want to look your best, but once you start spending a lot of time with someone, they're eventually going to see your fresh-faced look.
Secondly, what the heck kind of makeup was she wearing that she looked like a completely different person when she wasn't wearing it? We like to think our makeup does a lot - that's why we blow an entire paycheck at Sephora - but our it has never made us NOT look like ourselves. Even the best contouring will only make some subtle changes.
Either way, if this really happened and she was married to someone who didn't love her without her makeup on, this is probably a blessing in disguise.
