5 Times Celebs Posted Pics That Weren’t Really ‘Au Natural’
Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably seen numerous big name celebrities posting selfies on Insta with captions like #nomakeup and #nofilter where they seem to be bare-faced, all natural and still drop-dead gorgeous. However, recently there has been some speculation surrounding these pics of our favorite it girls and how maybe their photos aren’t quite as “au natural” as we think. With the rise in popularity of apps like Facetune that claims to make even your ugliest selfies “beautiful,” it’s hard to take a bad photo. The app is essentially Photoshop for your phone and it’s super easy to use; it can buff away blemishes, nip in your waist, elongate your legs—the possibilities are endless. Lately, superstars like Beyonce and Kim K. have been accused of editing their pics with this app and have received some negative backlash for these “flawless” images.
1. Beyoncé’s faux thigh gap.
In this image that Yoncé posted from her 33rd bday celebration looks flawless at first glance. When you look again, however, you can see that the image has been altered slightly. Her already perfect thighs have been whittled away to reveal a more noticeable thigh gap, and between those stems, you notice the stairs don’t really connect. If someone like Queen Bey needs to be re-touched, theres no hope for the rest of us basics, right?
2. Kim’s super slim waist.
It’s no secret that KK spends A LOT of time working on her body to maintain those killer curves. But when she posted this photo back in January, frankly she got a ton of sh*t for it. Yes, her booty-poppin bod looks great per usual, but when you look closely, you notice the tiles to the left of her tummy and the doorway behind her is kind of warped. Whatever the case, looks like the waist trainer is paying off.
3. Heidi Klum’s glow.
The always gorgeous former super model bares it all in what appears to be a #nomakeup selfie. However, looking more closely at this photo, it’s hard to believe that she has no makeup on whatsoever. We’re not doubting that Klum is naturally flawless, but it looks like she has some contouring with bronzer done on her forehead and cheek bones to achieve this dewy glow. But who knows, maybe the glow is just due to really good lighting (and good genes).
4. Kylie Jenner bare face.
Jenner has certainly been under a microscope lately, so I kind of feel bad calling her out for this but… she posted this airplane selfie a few days ago to Insta herself looking gorg while going makeup free. However, it’s hard not to compare this to other “makeup free” pics of her that look NOTHING like this.
5. Miranda Kerr “slims down”.
This Aussie and former VS Angel is hard not to love, but when she posted this photo (on the right) of her and fellow Angel’s at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, it was also hard not to notice that her waist looked a little smaller than usual. The original photo on the left portrays her natural frame (still supermodel sized) . After originally posting the clearly re-worked image, she came out with this statement: “Hi guys, here is the original VS image! When I re-posted the photo this week to support the girls I screen grabbed it off the internet when I was working in Japan. I had no idea it was photoshopped. All good intentions—sorry for the confusion and congratulations to the girls for such a great show! <3″
