When Taraji P. Henson shared a post-makeup selfie on Instagram on Wednesday (Aug. 22), followers (like me) instantly observed one thing was “completely different.” She appeared like Michael Jackson!
I’m unsure if it was the hair, the make-up, the lighting, her eyes, or a mixture of all 4, however she appears to be like VERY King of Pop-ish in this photograph.
Fortuitously, Taraji thought the identical factor, therefore her hilarious caption:
“Uuuuuuummmmmm kinda Trippy NO? Hair and make up is one thing huh? I believe it’s the lighting. If not I used to be supposed to be the sixth of the 5.”
It’s good to see Taraji can snigger at herself. She even took a while to snigger at a number of the feedback on her submit:
After all, 50 Cent, the web’s most infamous troll, additionally chimed in:
And comic DC Younger Fly roasted her as properly, telling her to “carry [her] Michael Jackson trying a** right here lady”:
In the meantime, Taraji’s make-up artist, Ashunta Sheriff, was NOT right here for the jokes and slander in opposition to her work, and she or he let that be recognized through her personal Instagram submit:
“At this time I bought roasted by social media @theshaderoom @dcyoungfly and followers let me have it and even advised @tarajiphenson to hearth me… properly similar hair and make-up similar day in these two footage however let me clarify to the novice #makeupartist out right here in the social media world. Lighting makes a significant distinction in how your make-up seems.

“I’ve finished Tarajis make-up for a lot of a few years in reality many celebrities and I used to be reluctant to handle this however I made a decision it was mandatory to train you novice make-up artist and individuals who don’t know lighting by any means that it does have an effect on how your make-up appears to be like. Moreover make-up for TV, pink carpet, editorial, movie and many others are all completely different mediums and make-up reads otherwise relying on the format used, cameras, lighting, background, hair colour, clothes and many others.
“I’ve been doing this over 20 years so imma say this don’t come for my job or my expertise trigger the work speaks for itself. I’m so rattling bored with folks throwing stones and don’t even perceive the technicalities concerned when it comes to #make-up #hair or #vogue and be so fast to choose folks’s work with out realizing all of the technicalities concerned.
“All of us have unhealthy days however simply so that you trolls know this wasn’t one in every of them. Decide my work if you stand subsequent to her in public and if she look ashy or inexperienced then come get at ya lady… f#&?
