Never trust a magazine cover. Not that I did anyway, but check out this portfolio from a professional retoucher. All these photos are after he worked his digital Botox – scroll over to see the “before.” After a while, the retouched photos started to look really cheesy and I wondered if this guy was just a two-bit hack. Nope – his work appears in major magazines and ads. I found this especially telling in light of Hillary Clinton’s “OMG HOW CAN A 60 YEAR OLD WOMAN CORRUPT OUR EYEBALLZ!!!” photo.
For more scary plastic people revealed, here’s a Dove ad showing a model from before-coffee morning mode to billboard.
