Get ready to witness the spectacular world of Photoshop, where digital wizardry can transform mere mortals into fantastical cartoon characters—or, well, not exactly. While both these photos seem incredibly fake, we have to admit that the image on the left has been taken one step too far and almost looks like a digital drawing.
The picture on the right still promotes some very unrealistic dimensions and proportions, which we guess was all accomplished with makeup, mood lighting, and some minor photo editing. The pic on the left, on the other hand, has been so overdone that all the proportions seem a little warped and almost cartoonified.
As a woman bearing witness to today's trends, we can't help but feel sad about this lady is heading. Whether she's committed to uploading a hair tutorial on Youtube or she considers herself someone who exists outside the bounds of reality, this girl somehow combined different kinds of trickery to accomplish both.
Firstly, it looks like she clipped some curly hair extensions on because there was no way she would let her hair suffer heat damage. As if the fake hair wasn't enough, she completed the look with big fake eyes and pore-less porcelain skin. Which one is more troubling? We'll leave it to you to decide.
If you showed this girl the two pics side by side, we are sure she would rather keep her lips sealed when asked about her lip situation. One question that comes to our mind is, how do her friends, who know what looks like in real life, react when they see her online pics?
In this digital realm, flawless becomes the norm, and reality takes a backseat to the allure of a highly filtered existence. And the pressure to conform to these heightened standards can be suffocating. We really don't think the editing was necessary here. All she could have done was just worn darker lipstick and had her eyebrows done.
Mind the Gap
While we miss the 90s, we certainly don't miss the toxic body standards that came along with it. Now we've had enough of them, but it seems like the internet hasn't. Back in the day, it was somehow established that everyone should be super skinny and have a thigh gap.
While some people do have one naturally and that's totally ok, it's just not something all of us can achieve, and why should we, really? This thigh gap looks way too wide and could it be yet another Photoshop fail? Photo editing should be left to the professionals, or not be done at all.
We have heard that this Instagram Photoshop fail was taken out of an actual ad! When it comes to professional photoshoots for well-known brands, we expect to see superior photoshopping skills. This popular clothing brand probably missed the memo. Seriously, what is up with the jeans that make her legs look a little unrealistic?
Someone should have been fired over this, as this is a mistake that's hard to miss! With some strategic outfitting and some serious photo manipulation, they've transformed this woman from a regular person to a terrifyingly stiff mannequin with no curves or contours, even when sitting down.
