The RAW FACE Project

We have a generation obsessed with looking like their social media idols, where it is slowly becoming difficult to differentiate from one to another.

Yes, it was stupidly hot day. Who would know with an expression like this <3

Me: Oh I didn't tell you? We're not having one today.
What?!! Oh shit I would've done my face if I had known! Shit!

Oh ok, well, I trust you.
