In a world where beauty standards have often favored one particular body type, Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé emerged as iconic figures who celebrated their curves and brought about a much-needed shift in perspective. There’s no doubt that this curvaceous look is beautiful, which is why so many women take to photo editing apps to try and get it.
It’s also the same reason why so many women push the envelope with this one, to the point where they make their bodies look ill-equipped to contain organs. We all know the body doesn’t work like that unless maybe you’re an 18th-century woman who slept in a corset all her life.
Ah yes, editing photos for a dating app is a sure way to nab those matches (who cares about the second date!) It's really all about first impressions, though this first impression is quite jarring. We're not sure if this is his face at all. It appears as though his face has been cut and pasted onto this body.
There's just something about the head size and those contours just make the whole thing look rather fake. Here's the thing, guys. We don't need to conform to these unrealistic beauty standards. You should embrace how you look, from your soft body to your slightly uneven jawline. The right woman will love you exactly as you are.
This dude wanted to accentuate his favorite features and didn't really matter if it was at the expense of his entire face! While Brooke Shields and Cara Delevinge have all made us appreciate a good set of brows, this guy sort of exaggerates it. Now they just overpower his face.
His eyebrows are so perfectly groomed that they seem to defy the laws of nature. It almost looks like someone just drew them on with a Sharpie. Come on, guy, you can do better than this. It's all about the details. Let's see gorgeous sweeping brows and not two thick lines.
Amp up the emo vibes by turning up the contrast. She clearly wants us to know that we're in some kind of metal music video. And don't get us started on those eyes. If you look closely enough, you might even be able to see how white those eyes are, usually, there's a little more color to them and they're not completely snowy white.
In a world where a single pimple or a few extra pounds are deemed imperfections, we've become obsessed with achieving an impossible level of lawlessness. But slapping on a heavy-handed filter on your photo is rarely the right thing to do, as is changing your features to such extreme proportions that they no longer look real.
Eye See You
These two girls picked the bug-eye feature to grab some attention. How they thought it looked good, we'll never know. To be honest, we sort of want to focus more on the gorgeous natural scenery they're standing in. They decided to take a different direction and went for artificial and other-worldly.
Sadly, it's clear that they've fallen victim to the pressures of today's beauty standards and took it a little too far. Judging by this photo, it seems like we're expected to have skin as smooth as a newborn dolphin, with zero blemishes or natural contours on our faces. Who needs laugh lines, right?
