So this picture was taken after a long 12 hour day communting to college and back. Me and my friend decided to go for a quick drink at my local. Well actually this is me, after a bit of retouching! Sadly I couldn't change the hoody and it could be much better but I'm not very good at using photo-editing software.
Here's the original
Just thought I'd show you as its quite fun to see the difference. I also think people need to realise that even in the blogging world, 'airbrushing' takes place. I don't even think its a bad thing as long as people are aware of it. I know for instance in my FOTD's the lighting literally washes out all my imperfections and my make up and hair is always freshly done. Also if I look particularly crap that day I don't bother with photos at all. So you see, if you met me in real life you might be suprised by how many imperfections I have... (LOADS :P)
Sometimes I look a bloggers OOTD's and think "Why can't I look like that?" but really they dont. Even the with most stunning of blogging ladies, lets face it... they dont wake up looking like that! Hot tools, makeup and good lighting is a girls best friend! This isn't a post to complain, just want to let all those girls, who feel bad about the way they look know, we ALL are imperfect, thats what makes us unique.
Also just for the record, I crop pictures etc but don't 'retouch' them. The huge window in my bedroom does that for me ;)
