My brother started this debate with me after I pointed out that the eyeshadow on this advertisement looks kinda whack in the corners.. It wings upwardly in a weird way and has no direction it's just kinda "there"... And he said "well, it was professionally done" and I said "that doesn't mean that it looks good." And so I went to prove my point further and pull up the following pictures- professionally done but they don't necessarily look good by default.. I wouldn't want to walk around wearing these lmao. Yes, while makeup is art and all (trust me I'm an artist lol) it doesn't necessarily make it look "good" or appealing.. So what's your say? Do you agree with me or my brother?
Not to say that people go around town looking like any of these.. Honestly.. Advertisements are misleading because literally NOBODY walks around town looking like ANY of those dolled up people 😅

You can expect professionally done make-up to be generally executed well. Those 5 pictures you showed were executed well. "Good" is a very subjective word, and the way you see "good" seems to be "what I would wear in public."
So, your brother's right in that professional makeup is usually very well done. But appealing to those artists may not be appealing to you, making you believe that it's "not good." You'll need to be more specific on what "good" is. Does "good" = "appealing to my taste" (subjective) or "good" = "executed well" (objective).1

If they're a real professional and they're good at their job, yeah, it always looks good - meaning it always looks exactly (or close to it) what they imagined it to be, what they wanted it to look like.
Now... if everyone will like it is another thing - not everyone likes all fashion, all music, all paintings... so it's safe to say not everyone will like every single makeup look...
And it would be weird if they did.6
