    these are computer genereated pictures
    even the unnatractive ones
    it says so on the page
    ... so no one should be comparing themselves to these images.. or any others for that matter

    thinner eyelids? lol what. I don't notice any difference between any of their eyelids. and the computer generated "unsexy" woman has wider set eyes that the "sexy" one.
