Airbrushing

2 Apr

Ok I think every girl (including me) deals with body image issues at times. I strongly believe that the media plays a part in this problem. I stumbled upon this website today from a company that advertises their airbrushing capabilities: http://www.iwanexstudio.com/

You guys should really check it out if you want to feel better about yourselves. When you go to the site, click on “portfolio” on the top. Then click on the little pics to enlarge them. Once you enlarge them, put your cursor over the pic and it will show the celeb pre-airbrushing. It is absolutely amazing. I can’t believe so many people (and I was one of the) truly believe that these celebrities are that perfect. No wonder so many people have low self-esteem or poor body image!!!

I did read a couple of articles that said that there could be laws passes on how much airbrushing a magazine is allowed to do. I was excited to learn this, however, I wonder how much good that will actually do. They won’t pass a law saying that airbrushing isn’t allowed, they will just say that there are limits. I don’t know how much of a difference this will make.

Anyway, I thought I would share my little discovery of the day with yall.

    even knowing what is done in most magazines now, this is still fucking surprising. nothing is real anymore.
