ARE WE ADDICTED TO PHOTOSHOP?
I had this post planned to go up today but the title was very different.
Last night on our popular Facebook group, someone posted a very lightly retouched image for a beauty campaign. Turns out, most folks didn't care for the execution of the makeup. Then I got to thinking.....are we addicted to photoshop?
As a makeup artist, I know what real skin looks like and what photos look like when they come out of the camera. Hell, I can even appreciate beautiful re-touching. But are we going too far?
As women, we pick apart ourselves because we think we need to see perfection when we look in the mirror? Only you can answer that question.
Today I wanted to share these images taken by the oh so talented French photographer Laurent Nivalle.
(I secretly want to be best friends with him) Thank you Laurent for these beautiful images. I bow to you and these un-retouched images.
Why do I love this? No make up artist, no stylist, only color corrections. Wow.
What do you think of this series? Do you love the images and the woman without photoshop?
