KYLIE JENNER (SAME DAY ON INSTAGRAM VS ON TV)

Wait….on the same day?! Seriously? These look like two totally different people. In fact, it might not be the same day, her hair is shorter on the left, as well as being straight, while on the right, it’s a bit wavy. Also, her eyebrows are different, she isn’t wearing a necklace on the right, and her nose is different (she got a nose job).

INSTAGRAM MODEL HIRED FOR THE RUNWAY

It’s plausible she didn’t shop for everything, it’s just good angles and lighting, because, as we all know, front lighting is always more flattering and makes your face look thinner. The light in the show is unflattering af! She just looks like she’s a bit bloated, but definitely the same person. The features are the same, the lighting is just shit.

INSTAGRAM VS. REAL- LIFE MOTHERHOOD

Reminds me of childhood memories, where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky!  Now and then, when I see her face, it takes me away to that special place, and if I stared too long, I’d probably break down and cry! Sweet child o’ mine! Sweet love of mine!

PHOTOSHOPPED 4-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER’S NOSE AND BUTT

I think of the old photo albums with childhood pictures of me and what it would feel like if my mum had retouched them and changed my body shape because I wasn’t good enough, naturally. She’s a little kid for Christ’s sake!

KHLOE’S NOSE DID A DISAPPEARING ACT

Instagram and Reality - Chloe

Khloe always photoshops herself into oblivion, but I feel kind of bad for her because for the longest time, she was referred to as the “fat one.” So, I can see how her self-confidence would be diminished. I think she is immensely insecure about her looks.

NEGIN MIRSALEHI

We all hear about photoshop, we all know what happens behind closed doors, but we don’t truly know, do we? Just how much of what we see is real and just how much is totally fake?  Honestly, no wonder women are so confused about what they “should” look like.

MELANIA TRUMP’S OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE PORTRAIT

Instagram and Reality - Melania Trump

She looks good on the right!!! I was used to seeing more images similar to the one on the left of Melania. Smile lines are cute, pores are nice, and not having bright white in one’s eyes is good. Photoshop takes away most of the physical characteristics that make someone unique because they’re confused and constantly mistaken as “flaws.”

ICONIQÉ

Instagram and reality - a famous chef

An excellent example of how these girls are setting themselves up for failure in the future. Ramsey looks weird as hell face-tuned because we all know and recognize his lined face as him!  Whereas Kris looks weird without it because the face the public is used to seeing is a half-blurred one.

PROFILE PIC VS TAGGED PHOTOS

I can’t help but wonder how these people feel when they meet other people IRL. Like… They can’t possibly believe they’ll never cross paths with somebody who’s seen their photos?  Are people serious?

KHLOE KARDASHIAN SAME DAY (POSTED VS TAGGED)

Instagram and reality - modified photos

Her whole Instagram is a totally different person than the person she is in real life. She’s really overdoing it on the lips!

WHAT’S WRONG WITH HER TOP LIP?

Instagram and reality - the lips of a girl

So much of Instagram makeup seems like extreme highlighting and contouring!  It only looks good at certain, specific angles. If you know how to work the angles, you’re golden! Otherwise, it’s like an optical illusion coupled with sidewalk art when you see it from the wrong angle.

BELLA HADID

The combo of plastic surgery and photoshop makes her look like a completely different person.

WHAT?

Instagram and reality - changed eyes

His eyes look weirdly cloudy which makes me think he did something, but like others have said, golden hour is basically a real-life filter.

TAGGED PICTURES ARE NEVER GREAT

It’s a shame this happens with people who, in reality, are quite attractive. I think a lot of them get messed up by how many people remind them that they are attractive, and they start to feel as if they have to obsess over it in order to continue to receive compliments and start to need that many compliments to feel self-assured.

THE PAPS ARE RUTHLESS IN THE UK

Instagram and reality - paparazzi

She looks like the same girl in both photos, just with an unflattering angle in the first one. The real shame is her lip and face fillers. It makes her look doughy, even in the edited one.
