Instagram vs. reality: what Jennifer Lopez, Emilia Clarke and other stars look like without Photoshop
It's only natural to post only the best photos on Instagram. But editing them to distort reality is not the best solution. Of course, you can use Photoshop to correct your figure, even out your skin tone, and remove wrinkles or folds on your body... But what about offline? Will you hide behind baggy clothes and tons of makeup? Or maybe you will start enjoying life, forgetting about "ghostly perfection"?
Unfortunately, it is especially difficult for celebrities to make this choice. After all, their followers are often cruel: they criticize them for weight gain, age-related changes, and so on. So, instead of ignoring the tactlessness or blocking these people, celebrities edit the photo and then publish it. In vain. They look irresistible without it. Read more in the article by OBOZ.UA.
1. Selena Gomez (31 years old)
In March 2022, American actress and singer Selena Gomez published a photo from the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards. Now compare it with a picture from the same event but without retouching. The star has clearly "reduced" her chin and slightly "changed" the shape of her nose. It is worth noting that she posts her latest Instagram posts with a minimal amount of retouching or even without it. She is not even afraid to show herself without makeup.
2. Megan Fox (37 years old)
When the American actress and model Megan Fox starts using Photoshop, there's no stopping her. The star always changes the color of her eyes to light green, evens out the relief of her face and removes small age spots on her body. Well, the tools in a photo editor are better than her passion for plastic surgery.
3. Jennifer Lopez (54 years old)
American actress and singer Jennifer Lopez has an athletic figure and well-groomed skin. This is the result of a balanced diet, regular dancing and physical activity. I wonder why she still wants to look like she did in her 20s on her Instagram page if she is beautiful without filters?
4. Emilia Clarke (37 years old)
British actress Emilia Clarke is a great example of how to love yourself. Once, when asked by journalists what the secret of her beauty was, she ironically replied that it was the merit of makeup artists. She occasionally posts retouched photos on her Instagram. More often she can be seen without filters and with light nude makeup or no makeup at all.
5. Bryce Dallas Howard (42 years old)
In 2021, American actress Bryce Dallas Howard wore an elegant silver dress to the Golden Globe Awards that outlined her shapes beautifully and perfectly matched her hair and skin color. The look was flawless! However, the celebrity posted an edited photo on Instagram: she reduced her waist, corrected her face oval, and enlarged her breasts.
