Tired of fighting with your shape? Why eat healthy and exercise when you can look like you do! These are just a few lines from this video that I found on beauty blog site Beaut.ie, which takes a look at the unrealistic expectations that the beauty industry bombards us with in advertisements.
Although we all know that Photoshop use is rampant in the fashion and beauty industries but this epidemic has spilled out into real life. Many people have Adobe Photoshop in their homes and they use it on photos for their Facebook pages, Twitter images and blog pages. But what happens when reality set it and that reality does not match the expectations created by a Photoshop illusion?
By creating images like this, insecure women choose to use Photoshop to compete with images of perfection that they’re bombarded with. Why not create healthier images of real women with imperfections, real fine lines and real scars? Real people, not just women, have acne, dark circles and cellulite.
How do you feel about the excessive use of Photoshop in photography?
