Makeup can transform a woman's face to the extent where some men may feel the look is deceptive.

An extreme case of this reportedly happened in the Middle East where a newly married husband decided to leave his wife after he saw her bare face for the first time.

Gulf News reports that the incident happened when the couple got wet while swimming at a beach in the United Arab Emirates.

According to the article, "The groom said he could not recognize his wife after the make-up was gone. The bride wore artificial eyelashes and had undergone cosmetic surgeries before the marriage."

He reportedly decided to divorce her right away and has refused to reconcile; the woman has since been seeking therapy.
