Photoshop allows young stars to look superhuman and older stars to look like younger versions of themselves.
We often see photos of celebrities that look so flawless, it’s hard to believe they’re even real. Before you start comparing yourselves to them, keep in mind that their photos are usually photoshopped.
A list of celebrity pictures before and after Photoshop – some of them were very scandalous, while others were simply photoshopped by people on the websites. Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian – they’re all there. Prepare to be shocked!
1. Angelina Jolie
Celebrities Before And After Photoshop Who Set Unrealistic Beauty Standards” Yes. Correct. Angelina sets unrealistic beauty standards. Both with and without Photoshop.
2. Kim Cattrall
She looked great in the first photo! Those are laughter lines that add character to her face. Why would they want to erase her experience? The retouched picture looks too plastic. These unrealistic images will just make women feel insecure about aging because it’s difficult to find positive examples of it in the media. Of course a 60 year old will have wrinkles and there’s nothing wrong with that!
3. Candice Huffine
She looks real on the left but can’t say “fabulous” is what comes to my mind. Looks to me that is not the flattering outfit.
4. Britney Spears
All celebrities have hair extensions added for special occasions and photo shoots. So what? That’s the business they’re in. It’s competitive and for a singer/dancer and celebrity who is followed by the paparazzi just waiting for a bad picture you should give the girl a break!
Time to get your eyes checked then!!! Cindy is merely 50, this scary sight is nearly 60. Cindy looks way better and more natural than this botoxed buffoon.
We do not accept even skin imperfections. and then the girls will massacre to try to reach a perfection that does not exist, while such a beautiful woman would not need any retouching.
7. Justin Bieber
Every time I see this ad, I can’t help but think of Kate McKinnon, who makes a way hotter Justin Bieber, than Justin Bieber LOL
8. Cindy Crawford
She used to be a model My own 52-year-old gym trainer doesn’t look like her, way better… I wonder why Cindy looks like that in the first pic.
9. Penelope Cruz
Heavy-handed edit. No problem with modest changes to improve an image from a photographic perspective, but essential to keep it reasonably close to original.
She looks better in the before shot.
11. Keira Knightley
I love her movie the duchess it’s my favorite and then the other movie the hole is also good.
12. Katy Perry
She’s gorgeous in the first one, all Photoshopping does is make everyone look like they’re unreal somehow… Or we’re all looking through a film at the pics…
13. Jennifer Lawrence
I can’t believe they retouched her hands! They slimmed her hand and made her fingers longer and skinnier… Smh
14. Faith Hill
She was just lovely before. They smoothed out her complexion, that’s cool, but she’s already slender, why make her arms and waist smaller? Even her forearm? Overkill.
15. Lindsay Lohan
I miss young Lindsay!!Remember The Parent Trap??she was so cuuuuttteee.
16. Miley Cyrus
she looks better in the before pic. like a real person.
17. Kristen Stewart
I LOVE that they photoshopped her with a CLOSED MOUTH!! LOL They realize that we are sick to death of seeing her with her mouth half open!
18. Miranda Kerr
She just needs blotting tissues. lol
19. Avril Lavigne
She looks great in original.
21. Kate Winslet
Kate is gorgeous, no need for airbrush..
22. Gwen Stefani
23. Meghan Trainor
Wow, they took part of her waist and put it into her leg…ugh. Plus, her hair looks more lively in the first one, the second one is like she’s posing and not moving
24. Lady Gaga
Out of everyone, she isn’t that bad. Just looks like she has makeup on.
25. Nina Garcia
Left is better! more natural.
Anyone notice that her left leg is darker than her right? Or is that just normal?
27. Jennifer Aniston
She’s already beautiful. Why the need to photoshop her or anyone else?
28. Eva Mendez
I’m really surprised at some of these originals….a good photographer should know how to light their subject properly so any ‘editing’ should be minimal
29. Tyra Banks
30. Prince George
Ok, this is a matter of changing the contrast and saturation. It is not what I would call a total shop. They merely made the pic look warmer. Although, the eyes are a bit suspicious.
31. Nicole Scherzinger
can’t get WHY would they need to retouch the picture! She looks awesome! I wish I had a bdoy like that!
32. Kate Middleton
She’s already thin enough!! Cheeks are too red!
33. Natalie Portman
She’s so beautiful in the first one. In the second they made a photoshoped make up…
34. Serena Williams
Serena Williams doesn’t need photoshop! She is hot AF in the first pic!
35. Selena Gomez
SHE’S LIKE THE PRETTIEST WOMAN ALIVE ALREADY
36. Oprah Winfrey
Oprah pulled a reverse Michael Jackson! lol
37. Emma Watson
She looks ridiculous…. emma’s already beautiful
38. Leighton Meester
Wait… so she went natural and someone added makeup. WHY? she is beautiful!
39. Sharon Stone
Age is beautiful, no need to photoshop!
