This week, Kendall Jenner was accused of photoshopping one of her pictures on Instagram. But she’s not the only one who’s faced these allegations – big sis Kim has also been suspected of editing her famous figure and skin. While stars do have a habit of using infamous apps like Facetune, nearly all of us are guilty of editing our pics. Many women are turning to filters to hide their blemishes and wrinkles. Young girls are so used to seeing fake, smooth skin and symmetrical features that it seems they forgot what a natural face looks like.

So, in the spirit of embracing the “imperfections” that we try so hard to hide, here are some surprising before-and-afters of celebrities with and without filters.

Closing Thoughts

Stars like Kylie, Nicki, and Ariana prove that photoshop is unnecessary! Sometimes we compare ourselves to the "facetuned" version of influencers and celebrities. When this happens, we need to take a step back and realize that they don't look like their pictures either! Instead, let's embrace our natural faces and remind ourselves of our beauty.
