In today’s age of social media, you are probably spending much time on Instagram looking at those pictures of seemingly ‘perfect’ models and it just makes you self-conscious about your look.
What it is very important to know, is that a huge percent of what you see is not real at all.
Instagram pictures of models are highly edited and manipulated by getting the right angle, lighting, pose and much more.
Iskra Lawrence, a body positivity model, recently made a video in which she is showing all the tricks that models and Insta bloggers are using to appear ‘better’ in their photographs.
“When you see that perfect photo, what really goes on behind the scenes is good lighting, good angle, good posing. I just want to show you the real stuff.”
In her video, Iskra explains how easily, in a matter of seconds you can ‘create’: a bigger booty, a thigh gap, flat stomach, smaller arms or single chin.
At the end of the video, she reminds that you shouldn’t ever feel like your body is not worthy or not beautiful enough just because you haven’t seen it in the media.
Beauty is so much more than that. Everything you see in social media is not real, but you are, and being you will always be enough.
