What we see in the media has a profound effect on how we think of ourselves and others and how we live our lives. Most of these effects are subconscious and can negatively affect women, as the media is full of unrealistic images of women.
These images have created a “toxic cultural environment” that has caused women to have eating disorders and negative views of their bodies. The author and advertising critic behind the documentary Killing Us Softly says that the average American woman encounters 3,000 ads a day. They are constantly bombarded by images of unrealistic body proportions and women who are Photoshopped and enhanced to look flawless. They believe that what they see is real and that they should be seen this way, but they are only illusions that are used to sell products and control our ideals.
“Women and girls are compared to these images every day,” Kilbourne said. “And not meeting those standards is impossible because they are based on a perfection that does not exist.”
This has caused a staggering 50 percent of girls ages 3 to 6 to worry about their weight. Women on the island of Fiji were quick to go on a diet and began to think that something was wrong after television reached their island. But they are trying to achieve something that is not real because the images they see are altered. If these images are real, the women in them are probably not totally healthy.
Instagram account beauty.false is busting these images that show models and influencers who modified their images to perfection and then images of them in everyday life. The contrast is stark and shows that these women in the ads are not perfect and look like us, which makes many consider that perhaps we are all perfect as we are.
Speaking of misleading photos, there is no way of knowing where beauty.false is getting its photos from or if the way they are rendered is totally accurate. So you will have to make your own decision! Either way, these images help us to strive to live in the truth and at least try to be happy with whatever we are working with, whether we seek to improve that or not.
Here are 60 images of influencers altering photos and what they look like in real life:
1) Angle and Posture
Sometimes all it takes is an angle and a pose to change the way we feel about our body. A different cut in clothes can also make a difference. Still, it’s the same body behind those clothes and poses.
Modern girls on Instagram (Angle + Posing + maybe Photoshop) / In life (No poses + Relaxed body) 👉🏼
2) We have acne
Models have to wear a lot of makeup to make them look perfectly in the photos. That causes acne. You would never know, as photos are heavily retouched.
Sorry for the little activity. At the moment I am working on my graduation project👩🏻🎓
My last post on the topic “Retouching Before-After” was very interesting for you. I found a couple of more interesting stories.
With this post, I want to show you that small skin flaws are normal. Trastelones.
This model is extremely fit. But she still has cellulite in real life. That is because it is normal.
Cellulite is normal. Love yourself.
4) Uncomfortable Stage
We all have our awkward stage growing up. Models do too. We all grow and change.
fashion models and modern before ahora👉🏼
Who has changed more? 🙈
5) Instagram vs. Reality
Instagram is not a reflection of reality. It involves makeup, lighting, and filters. What you see on Instagram is not what you get.
6) Guard Down
There is a big difference between our selfies and the photos that we take when we are caught off guard. The same goes for celebrities. The difference can be quite drastic.
“I understand that the paparazzi took photos of
Kylie at the wrong time, but I want you to know that the perfect people in the Instagram universe do not exist.
Celebrities are the same people as us.
TAG YOUR FRIENDS❣️⬇️
# beauty.false ”
Lots of people waiting for this post.
Original – Edited. I am against people changing their appearance and body using apps.
In this post I show how many influencers edit their photos.
8) Candid Shot
This Instagram influencer has very long legs. But they look much longer in their insincere shots. But it’s just an Instagram hack.
This girl has a really beautiful body and legs, but I think her legs on Instagram are the merits of Angle and Photoshop.
What you think?
9) Photoshop or Angle
We can all appear slimmer when we lean our body in a certain way. But we can also do that with Photoshop. Everything is an illusion.
10) Beauty vs. Beauty
Both equally beautiful. But one is more realistic than the other. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all be happy with our looks?
11) Buttock Implants
Some people get butt implants to improve the size of their butt. But this seems to be the case with Photoshop. Or just a simple tilt.
It is probably possible to achieve such a small waist if you train it or with a corset. But it looks quite healthy and beautiful in the photo on the right. This photo looks like two totally different people, although it is not.
“He has a beautiful body, I don’t understand why he edits photos”
13) Dental Braces
Sometimes you need braces. Even the models do. His smile is beautiful and bright in both photos.
14) Reality vs. Photoshop
Do you see the differences between the two photos? We have bigger breasts, smaller chins and smaller waists in the edited photo. I wonder what the editor thought was wrong with the first photo.
Wrinkles … everyone has them. Or everyone will have it at some point. It’s just a reality of life.
16) All Beautiful Around
The images look different. But they are all beautiful to me. Beauty everywhere.
What you think? Photoshop or angle?
Do you feel bad about your acne? Well that may be normal. But so is acne.
Many of you like posts on the topic “Before and after editing”, so I found for you some interesting pages that you should see💁🏻♀️
Photo retouching has reached a new level, so it is very easy believe in the existence of such ideal people🙈
But no matter how believable the photo on the left looks, I think it is impossible to have such perfect skin without a single wrinkle or pimple😅 so don’t try to be like the cover girls And remember that every photo undergoes touch-ups and color correction.
This is clearly the same beautiful woman in both photos. But putting on makeup can change your whole look. What fun!
We all have imperfections. Nobody is totally perfect. Even Instagram influencers.
Nobody is perfect. We all face some kind of problem.
Love and accept yourself, any problem is fixable.
Does your butt really look like this? Maybe yes, maybe no. She could be more relaxed in a photo.
I know you were waiting for this post🙈
I do not think that the influencers of whom I publish are seen in “reality” worse than on their Instagram🙅♀️
When we are on the move or in a relaxed state, our body does not always look slim and elegant, And that’s normal!
What we see on Instagram is the merit of the angle, posing and sometimes photoshop, and I make these posts so that you understand.
21) High Rear
Do you want a juicy looking butt? Just lift your buttocks. It’s as simple as that.
“Hello everyone, I’m here again”
22) Catwalk Booty
Runway swag looks very different from editorial swag. But they are all boots from the same woman. And although they look different, they are all beautiful.
Ok it looks PERFECT without Photoshop, with Photoshop it looks unreal
23) The Same Face
This is what you call an Instagram transformation. Believe it or not, both images are of the same woman. Just an editing job.
What a beautiful girl. But that is clearly a filter you are using. I wonder why he wants to look completely different.
You can look completely different with just a little tilt. You can look slimmer or more voluptuous. Or you can just be relaxed and look like yourself.
26) The New You
Undergoing plastic surgery is a personal choice. It can make you look completely different. Then you could do some hair dye.
Before and after
What plastic surgery was done? What do you think?
27) When is enough?
All women have the right to have the body they want. But when is it beautiful enough, enough? What message does this send to women when fit women have to pretend they are fitter than they are?
28) Expectation vs Reality
Sometimes our expectations don’t always match reality. These photos are proof. Sometimes the reality is better.
Instagram influencers put up a facade. One that is not true to life. So, don’t let the images change how you feel about yourself.
I would like to draw your attention to I don’t think these girls are ugly!
I just want to show that not all influencers look the same as on Instagram.
30) Stars In Real Life
The girl on the right looks like someone you would see on the street. On the left, it looks like something most women could never be. But even the Reality Ahows stars and Influencers look just like you and me in real life.
31) The Same Face
Here we have the same face. Just with different facial expressions and different makeup. It still looks beautiful, but one looks a little more real.
32) Men and Photoshop
Women are not the only ones looking for a perfect physique. These guys seem to have been using Photoshop too. What you see on Instagram is not always what you get in real life.
Alan and Alex Stokes 🙈 ➡️
One abs for two? 😅😅
33) The Best of Us
We all want to look our best in photos. But does it ever get unhealthy? At what point does it become harmful for us and for others to present ourselves as something that we are not?
34) Double Beauty at the Same Time
This woman is incredibly beautiful. Whether you are fishing or not. But retouching those angles makes the photo look different.
This woman is a fitness model. But it looks like it uses Photoshop. What kind of message does that send about fitness and health if a fitness model has to alter her natural appearance?
She has a nice body, but I think she uses photoshop🤔 What do you think of this? 🙈
The ladies dress up for Coachella. But for some reasons, your posed photos look very different from your actual photos. Hmmmmm….
Whoaaahhh! How did you get it to look like this? Are you squeezing your buttocks in the photo on the left?
38) From Girls To Women
These photos show how things can change a lot in a few years. But one thing is obvious. We all start out young.
39) Carrington Who?
The photo on the right is of Carrington Durham. So is the photo on the right. But it looks a little different in real life. Just as beautiful, but definitely different.
40) The Heavy Edition
Here are some pretty heavy edits. When young girls see these pictures, they think that there is something wrong with her body because they cannot make it look like the models on Instagram. But here’s a secret … neither are the Instagram models.
41) Big Head
When this girl Photoshopped her photo … she left something out. He forgot the Photoshop in his head. It doesn’t seem proportional to the size of your body.
42) There’s No Shame In Your Editing Game
According to beauty.false, this influencer does not hide the fact that she edits her photos. And more power to her. At least she is clear with her audience members to understand that these looks are not real.
She does not hide that she edits the photos 🙈 ☝🏼
Please, do not compare yourself to what you see on Instagram🙏🏽
Not everything you see on Instagram matches real life …
43) Same Woman, Different Lighting
It is the same woman in these photos. There is just a different lighting. Do a different makeup and fish too.
Bad angle or Photoshop?
44) Reality vs Illusion
Here we have what some women want us to see. And then it is what is really happening. It seems like a great effort when you are already beautiful.
45) Lights, Camera
Besides hair color, there is something else that makes photos of the same woman look so different. That thing is lighting. You are making a big difference.
There are tweaks. And then there is the lie. This influencer feels the need to lie about her real appearance for some reason.
It seems that someone played with these photos a bit. These women appear more figured than in the original photos. They also appear flatter in the rear area.
48) Who is That Girl?
If you look at this photo very quickly, you might think that they are two different women in the same dress. But is not. The lighting and possibly some touches have changed the look.
This woman is very fit. But apparently it doesn’t quite fit your own or your photographer’s mind because your photos are edited to make it look slimmer and smaller. If she thinks this about herself, what will other women think about themselves when they see photos like this?
On his instagram / on instagram his photographer 🤷🏼♀️
Do you see the difference? 👀
50) With Makeup and Without Makeup
This girl definitely looks like herself. She only has makeup on one photo and not the other. But there is definitely some Photoshop in his other photos.
51) Holding Your Breath
This girl is holding her breath really hard in the photo on the left. We all have. Or could it be Photoshop?
52) Altered or Angled
This photo could have been modified. Or it could have simply bent. Either way, it’s important for women to view these photos without posing.
Angle or Photoshop?
53) Cookie Cutter
Are these from the same girl? No! But they look almost exactly the same. That’s because the media tells women that they should have a mold style.
Which is better?
54) There It Is
Do you think models do not have cellulite? Incorrect! There is.
What do you think about this? 🤷🏽♀️ Shortening or Photoshop?
You can do amazing things with makeup. You can completely transform your look. But we all like you pretty similar when you remove your makeup.
Beauty bloggers without makeup🧖🏻♀️ What do you think? 👍🏼o👎🏼?
Personally, I don’t understand how this woman could look at the original photo and think that it needs to be retouched in some way. But it is slightly modified by changing the lighting. The one on the right looks just as beautiful.
I think without photoshop it is better🤷🏽♀️
What do you think? 🤔out make up🧖🏻♀️
Most people have rolls when they sit comfortably. Even Instagram models. This is how the skin works.
58) Face Shape
Nobody is perfect. But Instagram misleads some into believing that this is so. Why does society want women to think that they are not good enough as they are? That’s the real question we should ask ourselves… hmmm.
59) Adjust, Adjust, Adjust
Imagine all the young girls trying to be this skinny. Then they fail and hate their bodies because they can make their bodies look like this. All because they are lying to you.
At least this girl is being real. She is showing a photo of herself. And also a funny photo of herself.
Some girls on Instagram and reality.

35+ Hilarious Relationship Things That You Should Send To Your Significant Other Right Now
Couples can make the rest of us roll our eyes.
From their gooey-eyed looks at each other, to being forced to listen to the story of how they met for the fifth time, people in love just have to show it off.
If you’re that couple, you might recognize some of these moments, even if you don’t always find them the cutest parts of being in a relationship.
Here are some of the more wholesome moments you’ve likely shared with our partners:
1. You’re each other’s cheerleaders
Being in a relationship means you have a built-in cheerleader for when you do anything remotely impressive.
2. You suck it up and accept that you’re in love, even when you’re mad
Being a little annoyed doesn’t mean you’re going to withhold your affection completely.
3. You feel a little overprotective of your partner
Sometimes friends don’t understand that you’ve already picked your person and so you overreact a little when they remind you there are plenty of other people out there in case you want to jump back into the dating pool.
4. Love can make you feel all melty
Sometimes you catch yourself looking at your partner just because.
5. Date nights start to look a lot different
Netflix and chill is a perfectly acceptable date night.
6. You love having your partner right there, all the time
Couples don’t always feel this way at the same time, but it’s ok. There are worse things in the world than trying to sleep while someone just wants to remind you how much they love you.
7. You understand that food is a necessary componenent of happiness
Ya gotta eat, even when you’re mad. A hangry partner is not a happy partner.
8. You start to look like the other person
Just take a deep breath before you launch into the matching track suits part of your relationship. Your friends are never going to let you forget it.
9. You tell everyone the story of how you met
You get two times to tell the story while the other person looks on like a lovesick puppy, then pack it in.
10. Expensive doesn’t necessarily equal romantic
It’s the thought that counts and not every date night needs to drain the bank account.
11. You get a little possessive
Love can do some weird things to our brains. As long as you keep it respectful towards your partner, admitting that you can still get jealous can make them realize just how stong your bond is.
12. You get that warm tingly feeling
That’s why they say loves makes you glow.
13. Food is love
When you know you found the one because they not only want you to have the large fries, but know it’s a good way to keep you from eating all of theirs and causing a fight.
14. You don’t always need to be made up to be beautiful to them
That doesn’t mean you should just give up, but it’s nice to get to that moment when you don’t need to hide until you’re hair or makeup is done so they only see you at your best.
15. You don’t worry about cheating
Your significant other can go out for a night with friends or appreciate someone else’s beauty and you have the confidence to know that that’s all it is.
16. You accept one of you is a bed hog
Lots of couples still disagree on who it is, but most of the time this can just be solved with an extra backup blanket and a little nudge. Pets are another story.
17. You give in and buy stuff you don’t need
Sometimes your other half just finds something they really have to have and you should just be glad it’s not a whole box of puppies.
18. You catch each other up on important pieces of pop culture
That feeling of being shocked and then overjoyed that you are going to get to introduce them to a song or movie that you love. Just don’t talk through it or demand that they love it. And if you’re the one being introduced to something new, you work up at least a little bit of enthusiasm.
19. You try to look adorable before asking for things
Just never let it get to the point where you’re shouting requests at each other.
20. You try your best on things that aren’t your strong suit
Again, it’s the thought that counts, and doing something nice for your sweetie, even if it doesn’t turn out perfectly, can turn into a great moment – as long as you both keep a sense of humor.
21. You have a favorite food
And that food plays an integral role in your relationship.
22. One of you tells cheesy jokes and the other one puts up with them
Just start making Valentine’s Day cards out of them and they’ll serve a purpose other than to make you pretend to laugh.
23. You’re ok being away from each other
Everybody needs some space. When you’re significant other is away, you can handle youself, even if you really miss them.
24. You want to kiss them every time you see them
It’s cute as long as they don’t mind that you see their face as a kiss magnet.
25. You put up with it all
When you’re around someone a lot, you’re bound to get annoying (or annoyed). Just take it in stride.
26. You find love cartoons for 6-year-olds funny
This one definitely doesn’t require being in a relationship.
27. You still get butterflies when you look at them
It’s always amazing when couple who have been together a long time still get that feeling when they see each other. Now that’s a good life goal.
28. You put up with each other’s singing
It might hurt your ears, but it warms your heart.
29. You don’t want to let them leave without a goodbye kiss
Sometimes it feels like bad luck to let them go without a kiss and an “I love you.”
30. You can picture being the same couple in 50 years
Growing old together requires a lot of patience, but if you’re really in love, you know you can make it work.
31. You don’t withold respect
You might be annoyed or mad, but that doesn’t mean you let your loved one walk in the rain.
32. You tear up when you remember how lucky you are to have found your person
Love can overwhelm you in the best ways.
33. You’re proud of how long you’ve been together
Not everyone can make it work. There’s nothing wrong with being proud if you did.
34. You work around them
If you can stay in love afer an airport delay, you’ve definitely got a good thing going.
35. You always remember birthdays
You don’t need a Facebook reminder to remember their special day. Extra points for remembering the week before so you can ask if there’s a special way they want to celebrate.
36. You’ve got wedding goals
Ok, goals and expectations are two separate things, but if your relationship has gotten this far and is healthy, you know the emotion will be there.
37. You are committed to being adorable forever
Because if you got it (a great relationship, that is), then flaunt it.

50+ Tips And Tricks Revealed By Makeup Artists
New year, new you! Maybe one of your resolutions this year is to get more enthusiastic about applying your makeup every morning or to try a new eyeshadow shade, or maybe you are just looking for new ways to get the best bang for your buck.
We did the research for you and found a bunch of makeup hacks revealed by actual makeup artists themselves. Hopefully one of these tips will come in handy!
1.) Use the right foundation for your skin type
Use a water-based foundation if you have oily skin. Use an oil-based foundation if you have dry skin. Everyone is different.
2.) You don’t need a lip liner with your liquid matte lipstick
And if anyone tells you that you do, they are a liar. Almost all liquid lipsticks do just fine on their own.
3.) Let your eyelid primer dry before adding eyeshadow
And after the primer dries, coat them with a light, neutral color all over your lid. This will act as a base and will make it easier to blend colors together. If you want a dark color, slowly build it – first with light colors, and then darker. Don’t just go straight from light to dark.
4.) Save your mascara brush
Fun fact: most of the mascara magic actually comes from the brush. So if you found one that really works for you, save the brush when you’re done, clean it, and try using it with a cheaper bottle! It’s really not necessary to spend big bucks on this.
5.) Make your matte, full-coverage concealer look more natural with primer oil or coconut oil
Use just a drop of the oil of your choice and it will make your heavy concealer more radiant, easy to blend, and natural. It also helps with creasing!
6.) Use hairspray to tame full eyebrows
First, spray hairspray on a clean, disposable mascara wand. Then brush your brows up and into the shape you’re going for. If it makes the hair on our head stay in place, it definitely works for the hair on our face!
7.) Wet your brush before applying highlighter
It will instantly give it a little more glow.
8.) Don’t apply primer with your fingers
It can cause micro-exfoliation, which causes clumps.
9.) Use a matte bronzer to make your eyes look bigger
If you’re doing a full face of makeup but want to keep your eyes bare, put a little bit of matte bronzer in your lid crease and bottom lashline. That way, they will still be bare, but they will also appear bigger.
10.) Never use face soap with sodium laureth sulfate
Makeup artists swear that it dries out your skin.
11.) Stick to matte eyeshadows and powders if you have fine lines on and around your eyelids
Using something shimmery usually accentuates those lines.
12.) Always do your eye makeup before your foundation
That way, you will have an easier time cleaning up any fallout from your eyeshadow.
13.) Always exfoliate and prime your lips with a serum
Especially when using a liquid matte lipstick. Cracked lips will show!
14.) Use scotch tape for the perfect eyeliner wing
Angle it from your eye to your eyebrow for the crispest, cleanest eyeliner wing you’ll ever see. Boom, magic.
15.) Use eyeshadow primer on the lash line
Then sweep eyeshadow on top with a fine liner brush to create a smudge-proof eyeliner. Now if you’re out of eyeliner, you can use your shadows for the same effect!
16.) You can also use a cotton pad
If you use cotton pads to apply your face makeup, use those same pads for your eyeliner! Simply fold it in half and use the straight side to line up with your eye for the perfect sweep. No tape needed.
17.) If you accidentally get mascara around your eyes, let it dry
Wait 5 minutes or so and then swipe it away with a Q-tip. At that point, it should flake off and not smudge.
18.) Never share makeup brushes
It’s super unsanitary.
19.) Tarte’s Timeless Smoothing Primeris an absolute must
It’s soft and it doesn’t clog pores. What more could you want?
20.) Imagine a line from the outer corner of your eye to the tip of your brow. This is where your eyeshadow should stop.
A lot of times, people make the mistake of not bringing out their eyeshadow far enough. This can actually make the eyebrow look smaller.
21.) If you’re just starting out and want to learn how to contour, put the contour color on a brush or sponge first
It will be harder to blend if you draw it on directly like lines.
22.) Don’t sleep in your makeup
“Skin needs time to breathe and when you’re sleeping, your body is repairing the most. Sleeping in makeup is not only messy, but it causes breakouts, premature aging, and stained bedding. Take care of your skin, loves!”
23.) Don’t recreate the celebrities
“Those looks are made for them, their skin type, skin tone, and face shape. People always come into my shop and request to look like Kim Kardashian and I have to explain to them that it might not work on them and sometimes they even get upset when it doesn’t turn out. Yes, I can do it, but it won’t look good on you. Instead ask for something dramatic like Kim Kardashian or whatever you want but do not ask to look like them!”
24.) Invest in good skin care products
“Your makeup, no matter how much you paid for it, will not look its best when it’s added on top of dry, scaly, splotchy, oily and just plain unhappy skin. Want to get makeup optional skin? INVEST in skin care.”
25.) Don’t start from the top lash line if you’re doing winged eyeliner, use the bottom lash line for a smoother, straighter line
And look at the wing you drew first while drawing your second one.
26.) Never store your makeup in a bathroom cabinet
The humidity can cause it to alter and go bad before its time, plus toilet germs.
27.) Blend your foundation out onto your neck
“When wearing foundation please blend it out. Put product on your jawline, and blend it out into your neck. Also blend the foundation along the edges of your face out. It’ll help create a natural look and make it less obvious you’re wearing foundation, plus it will visually improve your color match.”
28.) Don’t use stark white concealer under your eyes
“Use an under-eye concealer one shade lighter than your face concealer, not two or three shades. It will give you a naturally bright effect instead of a contrasting white effect, which looks super unnatural.”
29.) Apply setting powder with a damp beauty blender or brush
This does wonders for people with dry or textured skin and gives a smooth, airbrushed finish.
30.) The same foundation that works for you in the summer might not work for you in the winter
For example, I use a more moisturizing foundation in the winter (Too Faced Born This Way) and prefer a more matte coverage in the summer (Hourglass Stick Foundation).
31.) For eyeshadow, tap the excess eyeshadow off the brush
Also hold the brush farther from the handle for more control.
32.) Blend your foundation into your hairline and make sure to contour that too
Everyone knows to drag their makeup down their neck a little bit, but too often I see people with a line between their makeup and hair. Not a good look!
33.) Stop blowing on your makeup brushes
“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people do this and it makes me cringe. Brushes already harbor bacteria if not cleaned and taken care of properly; you blowing on your brushes and getting saliva particles all over it isn’t helping considering you’re applying it directly to your face therefore causing breakouts, clogged pores, etc. If you’ve picked up too much product, just tap it off or give your brush a little shake.”
34.) Use a foundation one shade darker on the outer edge of your face to add depth
35.) If your skin is very oily, apply a light layer of powder after you apply your primer and before you apply your foundation
It’ll give you a smoother look. Also, baby powder works great for baking your face. I use it for everything!
36.) Glowing cheeks that look natural
“”Add your favorite blush to the cheeks before you apply foundation for a glow that looks like it’s coming from beneath the skin. A bright, warm pink at the apple is perfect for any complexion.”
37.) Multi-colors on the cheeks is important
“Apply two shades of blush for the perfect flush of youth. Pink, or anything in the red family should be placed on the apple of the cheek; it will give the effect of blood coming to the surface. Peach, coral, or anything in the orange family should be applied to the highest point of the cheekbone; that gives the effect of heat rising. Finish by bringing a matte bronzer to the skin where sun hits the face (forehead, cheekbone, bridge of nose, and chin).”
38.) Lighten your coverage
“Mixing foundation with moisturizer is an easy way to lighten your coverage options if you already have a fuller coverage foundation.”
39.) Make sure those lashes get coated
“Use the handle of a brush to lift the eyelid at the base of the lashes to roll your lashes up and back; this allows you to wiggle the mascara wand against the base of the lashes and pull through any clumps in a clean and precise manner.”
40.) Don’t be afraid of red
“If you want to find the perfect red for your complexion, try applying one lip color that has the same undertone as your complexion all over the lip: Cool uses cool, warm uses warm. Apply a red with the opposite tone just to the center for a lip that looks full and fantastic.”
41.) Reach for the school supplies
“No. 2 pencils are the perfect graphite shade to sketch in natural eyebrow hairs. Sharpen one to a point and draw in lightly for a finished brow.”
42.) Thicken up watery foundation
“To make foundation thicker, mix in a touch of loose powder. (Be careful not to add too much or it will cake.)”
43.) Chill out and reduce puff
“To reduce puffiness, pop eye lotion in the icebox and apply to lids before eye makeup.”
44.) Find the right lip shade
“Test lipstick on the inside of your fingertip, rather than on the back of your hand. The pad of your finger closely resembles your own lip color, so see which one looks best there, then move to the lips.”
45.) The power of gold
“Gold powder pigment is a great way to lengthen lashes or brows. Use a clean spoolie brush, toothbrush, or mascara wand, and brush a bronze or yellow gold pigment through a mascared lash or brow for a beautiful effect that adds dimension without looking hard.”
46.) Who knew?
“Halloween is the perfect time to stock up on some unexpected essentials. Fake blood is the ideal blush shade. Add it to the apple of the cheek for any skin tone—it looks like a natural flush of color coming though the skin.”
47.) You better stock up on your next visit!
“Starbucks napkins and disposable toilet-seat covers work just as well as blotting papers.”
48.) If it works, it works!
“As a little girl, I would watch my mother apply egg whites to her face (especially around her eyes) about an hour or two before going out to a special event. She would take one egg, separate it, whisk it until it was frothy, and apply the egg white all over her face and leave it on for 20 minutes. After, she would wash it off with lukewarm water and immediately apply her makeup. The egg white tightens the skin and wrinkles to give you a temporary facelift.”
49.) Who doesn’t want to look younger?
“My favorite ‘look younger’ makeup tip is to first use a luminizer in the inner corner, then swoop it with a fan brush underneath the eye. This brightens the face.”
50.) Pucker that pout
“Use a flesh-toned eyeliner to outline the lips along the Cupid’s bow. This reduces the chance of feathering and makes lips appear fuller.”
51.) Better safe than sorry
“If you can’t find a perfect shade, buy one that’s slightly darker than your skin and one that’s slightly lighter, then fine-tune the color yourself.”
52.) Strange but effective
“Pull your bottom lip down and look at the inside color. Pick a lipstick shade that’s either lighter or a bit deeper but along the same tone as the inside of your lip. Oh, and don’t do this in public.”
53.) Buff, buff, buff!
“Buff, buff, buff foundation into the skin — quickly, like a whirlwind — with a brush. It ensures the coverage won’t look heavy-handed.”
54.) Instant lip lift
“Apply concealer to the outer corners of your lips to give your lips a lift.”
55.) Fuller brows while you sleep
“Apply a nourishing balm to your eyebrows before going to bed. This will guarantee extra strength and growth—thicker eyebrows in two weeks.”

“What A Dreamboat!” Makeover Transforms Shy Teen After Dramatic Weight Loss
Christopher Hopkins, aka “The Makeover Guy” is known for transforming men and women over 40 into the best selves. But in 2019, he took on the task of a teenager.
Little did he know that Phoenix’s makeover would be one of his most powerful.
Phoenix found himself in Hopkin’s Minneapolis “appearance studio” after a big weight loss. The previous school year, he weighed in and 250 pounds.
His transformation wasn’t easy.
He managed to lose 100 pounds by counting his macronutrients (think of it as going a step farther than calorie-counting) and working out every day with a personal trainer
That’s a big commitment for a teenager!
But Phoenix is dedicated and fearless. Hence his desire to put his head in the hands of Hopkins for a whole new style.
He’s already a handsome young man (with hair most people covet), but he decided it was time for a change. And if you’ve seen The Makeover Guy’s popular videos, you know his studio is the place to go.
The big chop
It seems pretty obvious that Phoenix is going to end up with a major haircut. After all, why waste your time going to a makeover guru if you’re not going to let him go crazy with the scissors?
And that’s precisely what Hopkins does. Gone is the shoulder-length wavy hair of the “before” Pheoenix. But is he happy?
There’s a big smile on the teen’s face as he runs his hands through his glossy mane. He’s still got hair to die for!
It’s long on top and makes the perfect wave in front. The only problem is that it’s a little too neat for the teen.
We cringed a little when he messed with perfection, but it’s his hair, not ours after all! And the modelesque look just wasn’t entirely jibing with him.
After getting a tousel from Hopkins, things end up in largely the same place, just not so catalog-model-ready. And it still looks great!
Personal style is just that – personal – so Phoenix has to be able to pull off whatever hairstyle he walks out the door with. And we were really impressed with him for speaking up.
A good day
“I had fun today,” Phoenix says after getting a little ribbing from Hopkins.
He admits that he’s normally shy in front of people and we believe it since when he first walked in he seemed less outgoing. But after agreeing to trust his stylist and seeing the results of the makeover, he lives up to his name. Phoenix is reborn!
After one more tweak by Hopkins, the transformation is complete.
It’s a cute moment when the teen keeps messing with his hair only to have Hopkins walk by and “fix” it one more time.
Commenters were over the moon about Phoenix’s makeover.
“Omg that jawline! He’s stunning and what an adorable personality,” said one fan.
Of course, there were lots of comments about his Bart Simpson shirt, but frankly, we think it adds that perfect reminder that he’s still a “kid.”
And like most commenters, we wish we could see him waltz back into high school with his new look!
