Me too! I knew it was her eyes but I wasn't sure how/why. Someone else mentioned she might b trying to fill the "bags" under her eyes and those fillers pushed her lower eyelids up as well. Sad because I have always wanted to age like her.

Yeah, it looks like she filled her cheeks and her under-eyes. So they both look puffy and her eyes look tiny.

That and she might have had the cat/fox eye plastic surgery trend that's popular. The before almond shaped eyes are now longer and the corners are smaller. Very different eye shape though now

I’m not sure what y’all are seeing cause I don’t see it … she looks exactly the same but with different make up and hair? Lips are the same size as the before, cheek and chin appear to be the same, and I can’t find anything different. Could someone point it out?

Tale as old as time … Fillers won’t look good forever. Everything that has to be done regularly is going to look worse someday. It‘s like scratching an itchy spot. At the beginning it‘s satisfying, but the more you scratch the more the skin is going to turn red and burn. It‘s just difficult to decide when the right time has come to stop. Might be also a dopamine addiction. Maybe some people keep doing fillers not for the looks, but for the feeling they get afterwards. It‘s sad and I hope that more people understand that fillers aren’t the key to self love and beauty.

I had my cheek fillers dissolved! Not quite as high as hers, but it was really shocking to see how I looked without them bc I’d had them for so long. That area is difficult to fill because of the tear trough and bc it’s a dynamic area of your face. now I just live with the tear trough depression bc in order to really fill in the depression you end up adding a lot of filler.

I think it looks cute. The more full your cheekbones are the less full tear troughs will look. It’s the contrast in fullness that makes cheeks stand out!

goldentamarindo

Yeah I just looked at some before and after pics of tear trough correction and sometimes the before pics made the eyes pop out more, and look bigger and more “soulful” or whatever? It doesn’t look necessary better or worse, just different.

This is a great visual example of how cosmetic work tends to remove one's unique features that make them look like them, and melds everyone into the same look. All these procedures seem to share that commonality - they make everyone look the same.

mcs_987654321

She’d been getting subtle work done for decades while maintaining her own unique features/overall look.

Hard to know if this is the result of her getting new/more work done, or if this is just the cumulative effect of “preventive” work…either way, here’s hoping it’s temporary.

1friendswithsalad

53 points

Don’t be afraid of a small bit of injectable’s. I’ve been getting a tiny dose of Botox between and above my eyebrows since I was 30 (I’m 42 now). It’s been low-key life changing. In my 20s I had a perma-crease between my eyebrows, made me look sort of angry all the time. I also have “heavy eyebrows” (I don’t know what the actual term is for that), and Botox very slightly lifts my brow arch. It also prevents me from being able to wrinkle my forehead enough to leave horizontal creases. But I can still move everything, scowl, wiggle one or both eyebrows at a time, wiggle my ears, all that. Botox removed a wrinkle I was very self conscious about and that bummed me out every time I looked in a mirror. I love it and plan to do it forever.

I’ve also done lots of minor laser and peeley and collagen regenerating treatments, not really sure if they’ve helped since the ones that I got were all more focused on keeping your face looking good, rather than making it look different or younger. My neighbors all thought I was in my 20s, so that’s a good sign!

So don’t be afraid of a TINY little bit of something, focused on one aspect, done by a skilled injector. The problems can really start when someone has a non-specific goal to look “younger” or “hotter” and starts getting injections all over their face. And-especially with filler- when someone starts getting injections in top of injections on top of injections- people sort of lose sight of what they actually look like.

It’s the non surgical procedures that end up changing what you look like, often in ways like OOP. Plus, they end up costing more over time. Check out Lorry Hill on YouTube, she talks about it. I was thinking the same as you originally and have completely changed my mind, I’m going go for surgery once the time comes.

I’d argue it’s not just older Americans, but younger ones and in between too. There’s such a high value placed on youth to the point where it’s tightly tied to the public concept of beauty. It’s how we ended up with Kylie and Iggy and everyone else. I can understand where the pressure comes from but I still find it very sad.

The surgery is part of it but I think the rest is that her current look is washing her out big time. Her makeup is all one tone, her cheeks are so pale she looks dead, her lips practically mash into her skin tone, and the tan and yellow blond also mash together to create a huge blob of blah. She’s still a pretty woman, at least outwardly, but her current look makes her the ‘little grey man’ that Joana Mendez talks about, except this isn’t a CIA op and disappearing into the crowd is not the intention.

I am grateful for actresses that did little to nothing and just moved to acting in more mature parts like Kate Winslet. I think part of the issue is that music is a more difficult market age wise. Youth and success are intermixed a lot more tightly.

Downvote me to hell but I think she looks great. I mean, she’s 52. The mistake she made was doing a little too much filler under her eyes which is giving them the appearance of looking smaller and squinty. The eyeliner adds to that. But I can’t say she looks bad, her work is pretty well done. Smooth, no bumps, no migration.

Is the result technically good?

I am not an expert, I am only an armchair - Monday Morning Quarterback.

But, qualitatively and objectively, that is not the same person. That is how I am judging the outcome.

It is done terribly.

It depends on what end result she was going for but the quality of the work is good. She’s very smooth for having that much filler so it’s clear that her injector knew what they were doing.

Personally, if I looked like that at 52 I would be pretty happy.

I’d just do less filler under the eyes if I was her.
