    Probably should have been titled Skaters without theatrical make-up or some such.

    He is the cutest zombie ever! The one from the practice look like he also had lipstick on. But most of Japanese have a perfect skin and their lips usually look very healthy.

    Plushenko - Wore makeup early in his career, but looked to have completely dropped it by 2005.

    Scott Moir - I don't recall if he wore any this season, but in 2010 his foundation was almost as heavy as Tessa's especially at the Olympics.

    Really? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CdUOibf3xM&t=4m33s I found this...

    I recognized the make up on exhibitions, but not in competition.

    Damn, I wish I had his skin.
    If I didn't know that the kid is actually able to sweat I'd bet money on it that he was born without a single pore

    I agree, I think they are all wearing some makeup during competitions.

    Maxim Trankov most definitely wore eye liner when they did their Bring Me To Life short program.


    I assume they all wear some level of makeup.

    Yes. I thought it was obvious when he skated his Bolero program at 2001 Worlds that he was wearing makeup. Same with his 2002 Olympic programs.

    Seriously...Yuzu looks almost like a CGI character at times, it boggles the mind! For a teenage boy to have such flawless skin is so unfair...he probably doesn't have to even do anything to maintain it. Yes, I'm jealous!

    ^ careful there, if you get green with envy it won't do your complexion any good (makeup might turn some people orange but I'm guessing it's helpless against Hulk-Green)

    I remember Daisuke was saying somewhere that he doesn't wear make-up.

    I don't think Yuzuru has ever wear any makeup. His complexion in most case looks perfect, but sometimes can be very pale, like a (cute) zombie especially when he's nervous or tired before big competitions.
    I heard sweating is good for your skin, maybe that's why we can't spot his pores even in HD photos.
