Porn Stars, Before and After Makeup

Published On 09/14/2015 Published On 09/14/2015

They may be going to bed like this, but porn actors definitely don't "wake up like this."

That's where Melissa Murphy, a pro makeup artist and beauty stylist based in Los Angeles, comes in. In recent weeks, Murphy has posted a series of photos on Instagram showing several models -- though not all of them porn stars -- before and after her makeup magic. It all goes to show that porn stars are human and beautiful even when they're not in that Pornhub video...

Take a look:

Veronica Vain

Chanell Heart

Nicole Aniston

Penelope Lynn

Kissa Sins

If nothing else, the photos show just how porn warps what's considered normal. And that's what one guy found out by giving up porn cold turkey, too.
