[Video+Thoughts] Real Women Photoshopped to Look Like Cover Girls

Like it? Share it!
There comes a time when a woman sometimes feel unpretty, lack self-confidence, or has a lot she wishes to change on how she looks. Although most of the time I always want to feel my best and feel beautiful everyday, there are days when you look in the mirror and see all the imperfections who want to change. I do not want to be hypocritical as much as I am a huge fan of makeup. But I think they are to enhance than to really change our features. They give an extra boost of confidence. [Video at end of post]Here’s a confession. I photoshopped myself a couple of years back.

BEFORE Photoshop (Taken 2012)

 

I chanced upon this video on youtube and hit it me. It hit me a lot. How nice it would feel to just be comfortable in our own skin and people appreciating for who we are and not what we look like. But we live in a world where people are strongly influenced by what they see on media. Those who set standards on what is beautiful or what is not.

John and I had a conversation a few days ago on how people perceive others physically. How do we see ourselves in front of the mirror? Is it the same as how other people see us? A thought came to mind that each person’s eyes view us differently. John may see me look this way but another friend may see me in another light. That is why the cliche saying; “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”

To anyone who’s reading this. You are beautiful. Always remember that.

    I see no problem with people when they photoshop their pictures. It's not an issue if somebody wants to change the way they look in that picture, it doesn't change the totality of who you are but it emphasizes you. That's why photoshop exists.

    I don't know about other people but i think your before and after photos doesn't really look bad at all. And i think all you ever did was to edit the brightness, shadows and contrast on it to improve the quality of the photo and not altering any parts of your body, unlike those of magazine covers which are greatly exaggerated and unreal. 🙂

    In cosplay, photoshop is very present in pictures but that is okay in order to make you look A LITTLE BIT better. But when it is over the top and the photo does not look natural, that is where the problem starts. The picture should still look natural and that is not the case anymore in magazine photos

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva April 5, 2014 at 12:48 pm

    I don't think that you need to confess that you photoshopped yourself because you just enhanced the colors to highlight your beauty where in other photoshopped beauties on cover of a magazine they really edit it extremely to the point that sometimes it is unbelievably natural.

    Feel beautiful every minute of your life….and deep inside too. Well, at least you're finding a way to look beautiful.

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva April 5, 2014 at 8:16 pm

    It's nice to feel comfortable with your skin and that's the real beauty since it comes from within.

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva April 6, 2014 at 2:00 am

    i guess it would be better if you had the photo of before and after side by side so we can see clearly the difference of what you photoshopped on your photo. You both look gorgeous and oozing with sexyness though! Envy your SUper legs! it looks amazing. I never use photoshop I always just have to change the lighting on my photos. x0~ http://www.tauyanm.com

    It's good to feel beautiful in our own skin and not be swayed by what beauty is in the media perspective.

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva April 6, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    Being beautiful is something that can also from within.

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva April 7, 2014 at 1:00 pm

    Enhancing photos is not necessarily bad especially if there is no intent to misrepresent anything but simply to come up with more quality photos.

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva April 7, 2014 at 1:54 pm

    It's really okay to do some minor edits or enhancements in photos 🙂 It's part and parcel of photography but over-exposing and doing major edits are no no's!
