LIES ALL LIES….

let’s not jump to conclusions, I’m talking about this video:

In case you can’t be bothered clicking the link, I’ll just tell you, its airbrushing…all the airbrushing. 

Beautiful model: 

 

Turns into supersonic no spot no freckle no nothing face: 

  

Nothing is safe, her nails, her hair, her lips, her ears, everything gets redone so that she looks like a shiny barbie doll. 

Seriously her finger nails get retouched?! Who really cares that much?! 

The process of turning a woman who’s probably already sat in a makeup chair for 2 hours earlier being prepped and plucked takes 6 hours to turn her into superhuman face woman, 6 HOURS! 

That’s painstaking process just all seems a bit over the top, it’s completely unbelievable that anybody walks around like picture 2 (not even Kim Kardashian), her skin looks like it’s been moulded from angel dust and her already full lips look like they’ve been stung by bees. So well done for transforming a totally normal woman,with normal skin into a weird contortion of herself. 

And maybe Im being a bit sensitive but I also can’t helping thinking how this model feels…suddenly her actually skin and features are just not good enough. Yes you might have plump lips and a nice face BUT THATS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. 

AND ALL YOU AVERAGE NONE FAIRY DUST FACE PEOPLE ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH EITHER, LET ME PUT YOU IN MY COMPUTER AND MESS WITH YOUR FACE FOR 6 HOURS.

Sigh, I guess it just teaches you not to believe everything you see in the media. 

Because it probably most definately a lie. 

Love Robyn.

  1. Great post. As if life isn’t challenging enough, we have mass media creating an image of perfection that isn’t even realistic. Heart first, soul second. Physical appearance should be buried in the back of the book in an appendix that nobody reads…
