Unrealistic expectations

Personally, think this is a brilliant idea. Filters can completely change the way people look and place so many unrealistic expectations upon someone who may have poor body image.

I actually like seeing texture and people who look different, in all shapes and sizes. I also like seeing what products (like mascara or foundation) REALLY look like. I don’t want the model to be retouched and wearing falsies.


I can remember when Barbie dolls were being criticised for creating unrealistic bodily expectations.

And what happens when you meet people in real life? Someone told me recently that of 60 applications for a job, more than half attached a photograph to their CV. Of those, ONE looked like their photo.

I would be so afraid something like this would happen (from the show 90-Day Fiancé)

I love this kind of beauty. Bette Midler’s smile always goes right up to her eyes!
