Sooner or later, everyone would be forced to be real on social media. Day in day out, we find out about smarter ways to reduce ‘falseness’ on social media. A big watchdog, Celebface, is on the streets to expose all celebs who edit photos that have already been edited! @Celebface, who goes by the slogan “If you don’t want to see the truth ➡ leave this page”, definitely leaves no stone unturned!
Of course, we all edit our photos with one filter or the other before posting on Instagram. But this is more worrying because it turns out celebrities go the extra mile to edit professional photos! Already, a photographer has done the work by taking out the ‘bad & ugly’, yet these stars see nothing wrong with further ‘faking’ it for the gram.
Looking at that photo of Rita Ora above, it almost seems like nothing has been photoshopped. But @celebface does the extra work by mashing the two photos up into a GIF. Like this;
From this GIF, you can clearly see the difference! Rita looks much slimmer in the photo she posted on IG for her fans. In the comments section, most people prefer the original look to her edited version. Many wonder why Rita even went through the stress. “I dont understand – why even go through the effort to do this?”, one user said. “Before is so much better. She is beautiful the way she is ♥️”, another added.
But then again, why does Celebface do this?
For everything done, there is a motive– and the person behind @celebface, Anna, 24, shared hers to Huffpost. “This is not a page for hate. This is the page for people who use Instagram every day and think celebrities are perfect,” she said. Anna explains that she’s striving to get celebrities to do what is right– post the real stuff! “But nobody is perfect. Celebrities are ordinary people.”
The private account has over 614,000 followers, while it follows no one. Looks like Anna is here to stay and she definitely is making her point!
Here are other examples; and there’s so much more where it came from
In addition, Celeb face shows followers ‘before and after’ comparisons of our favorite stars. The idea is to reveal the surgical processes that they may have undergone.
Anna discloses that she started this account two and a half years ago. Initially, she described it as “just a hobby”. So as the hobby that it was, Anna posted not everyday, but whenever she found something. Soon enough, her follower base got to a shocking 30,000! And within this short time–with the help of Google and her followers, she’s posted over 7000 posts under this theme.
