Someone Edited Celebrity Pics To Fit Influencer Beauty Trends, And People Are Out Of Words
Margareth SPublished on
One might wonder how did it all begin. People have always had pores on their faces, then why is it such taboo for that to be caught on camera? Was it because of the low-resolution camera we used to dabble with when we were young teenagers? These edits are getting out of hand.
We don’t know the reason anymore, but this Instagram account decided to make a case in point with these edits. Make no mistake – these celebrities look better with their wrinkles brushed off, their lips plumper, and their eyes brighter after the edits by goddess.women.
Yet, weren’t they already naturally gorgeous? Why do influencers needed to put out these standards that demand unnatural products of plastic surgeries on women?
Every time a new edit is put out, people are always split between praising and hating the edits. Nobody can deny that the beauty edits used on these celebrities looked really smooth. But the fans are enraged with how their favorite actresses look so unnatural or different in them. The smiles looked dead; they don’t look alike, etc. More than 350k people are now interested in the next edits they’ll post.

Whether you are for the skillful edits on these images that can be considered digital art or against the rampant unrealistic beauty standards these images prove, the posts always spark discussions.
Lizzo, an active advocate for body positivity, shared a raw picture of herself without filters. She commented, “It scares me to think that now there is a tool that actually cashes in on that insecurity and it makes it bigger. It feeds the monster.”
Mariam Adegoke, GP, doctor, and founder of Adegoke Wellness Clinic, mentions that people who saw filtered selfies are more likely to feel dissatisfied with their own image and resort to those filters themselves, creating a vicious cycle of self-loathing.
She reminds people, “Remember to exist in the real world and not just online.”
