Now this is not an exercise to bash celebrities…I personally think all of those featured in this article are absolutely beautiful before photoshop! But I think it’s really important for people to see this, especially those who are young or vulnerable.
It always surprises me how many people are not aware of Photoshop, or how advanced it actually is technologically. Arguably you can do anything on Photoshop, and this is why it is so dangerous in the wrong hands.
Dangerous sounds dramatic but in fact the constant onslaught of perfect images bombarding young women is bound to subliminally effect how we feel about ourselves. Subconsciously we will compare ourselves – and we will never, ever measure up. Slowly the idea of beauty is changing.
The link below on BuzzFeed includes some interesting GIFS of some of our favourite celebrities. Some have only been altered slightly – others rather noticeably. What do you guys think?
