Holy Photoshop Batman

So recently I blogged about getting my B-pics done and I've decided not to post the full ones up because I'm just not comfortable with a full shot of me up in my underthings, but I will show you one that isn't so incriminating, mainly because it highlights the point of this post...don't compare yourself to celebrities.

Even the most beautiful women in the world are not up to the standards set forth by magazines.

The picture on the left is what you're supposed to look like at that age.

This is natural beauty

Did you notice that her legs are fused together?

Even my own before and afters:


Not to say women in magazines all need airbrushing.  When I was in Vegas and I saw the Maxim Hometown Hotties in person, they looked amazing.  Fit and thin and gorgeous, but I bet magazines airbrush them anyway, just to bump them up to that unattainable level that really does a number on our self esteem.  So don't compare yourself to celebrities in magazines.  You are real and you are beautiful.

Love this! And it totally makes me feel better. I would love love love to get all done up by a celebrity hair/makeup artist and get professional photoshopped pics taken. I bet I would look HOT! :-) Maybe someday...

So very true! It's amazing that in this day and age we're still trying to live up to unattainable standards of beauty. Natural beauty is how we would typically present ourselves to the world, devoid of hair styling and makeup. I wish more celebrities would feel comfortable showing us what they look like underneath it all.

But can I just say that you are breathtakingly beautiful in your BEFORES and afters! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog so I could read this :)
