We have been manipulated by the media to all aspire to having cover girl looks. The flawless skin and impossible toned physique of these cover girls on the pages of Vogue and Elle magazine seem totally out of reach to a “normal” person.
That was until the 4 women in this video were approached to see if they wanted to take part in an experiment. In this experiment they were each done up with make up and hair before being shot by a professional photographer. After this they were each retouched by a Photoshop expert in the same way cover girls are retouched every day. In fact it is though that now around 90%+ of magazine covers we see have models that have been retouched in some way or another.
The reaction of the women when they were shown the finished image is remarkable. They finally begin to understand they are naturally gorgeous to start with and don’t need all these superficial “improvements” to look their best.
A wake up call a lot of women need in today’s media driven society.
