Body Image and Artificial Beauty

In our book Wanting to Be Her, Michelle Graham talks about an actress who didn't recognize herself in a magazine because of how different she had been made up. Well, More Than Serving Tea coeditor Nikki Toyama blogged about this link:


It has an amazing one-minute video of how women are made up and photoshopped to look entirely different from how they normally appear in real life. Even supermodels don't look like supermodels. Check it out.

I loved that clip and also blogged about it awhile back. You know, I used to be one of those people with the Photoshop retouching brush (advertising artist). It SO went against what I believe about life. I guess this partly explains why I put the Photoshop life behind me.
