Photoshop needs no introduction. Chances are, your favorite celebrities have been photoshopped. We want to believe that these edits are made just to enhance their features. But some are highly edited that you barely even recognize them in real life.
Want to know what they look like without the holy software? Below are some before and after photographs of celebrities before they were edited to perfection.
Let’s be honest – we tried photoshopping our faces and bodies once in our lives. We’re just not skilled enough to make it look believable when we tried.
#1. Megan Fox
This photo of Megan Fox had been photoshopped – on the left, you can see roughness and acne scars on her cheeks. Also, it she’s lighter than the photo on the right. Smooth skin and gone are the pigmentations.
#2. Britney Spears
Britney is one of the few who allowed their unretouched photos surface online. On the right photo, you can see smaller waist, slimmer thighs and her bruises were removed. But to be honest, if didn’t know these were Photoshop, you wouldn’t even notice the difference.
#3. Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay’s airbrush-like photo on the right is stunning with no visible freckles shown. We already know the actress has freckles. And with her late night partying in the past, you can definitely see dark bags under her eyes. You can’t see lines and roughness on the photoshopped pictures which made her look really young compared to the left one.
#4. Kristen Stewart
They hid the shadows off of Kristen’s face, making her entire face shine so bright. Even her hair became a couple of shades lighter than her light gold shade.
#5; Mariah Carey
Although Mariah Carey is such a gorgeous woman, some of her album artworks and virtual looks are unrecognizable. Just compare the two pictures below.
Madonna’s skin was enhanced and there were a couple of fixes on the wardrobe as well.
#7. Prince George
Even the Little Prince already has his first photoshopped picture. And although US Weekly denied the Photoshop allegations, they said that the original photo was bluish in tone and needed to be given an “overall color for printing purposes”.
#8. Katy Perry
Katy’s photoshopped picture made her look really skinny, removing the lines of her stomach; made her look bodacious by plumping her boobs; and evened out her complexion.
#9. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge
“Grazia” magazine doctored Kate’s photo when she appeared on their covered. While Kate was already slim enough – who had an extreme diet and exercise before her wedding – the magazine made her look even thinner.
#10. Mischa Barton
On the right, you can clearly see Mischa’s cellulites but when you see her in pictorials, she’s so smooth-skinned and thinner than she really is.
#11. George Clooney
You can clearly see a vast difference on the actor’s hair and face. George is a handsome man and yes, he is aging, so they retouched his gray hair and made it darker and smoothed out his skin as well.
#12. Angelina Jolie
You would think a beautiful woman like Angelina Jolie doesn’t need alterations. But yes, she was photoshopped as well. Her wrinkles and dark circles were erased and smoothened out any lines.
#13. Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian had a digital makeup with Photoshop. That one day she went out without makeup that news publications and gossip rags had to put makeup on her face because she doesn’t look like the usual Kim Kardashian.
#14. Kourtney Kardashian
And then there’s this one from Kourtney. You would think the photo on the right were weeks after she gave birth to Mason, but it isn’t. Both pictures were taken the same day but Kourtney admitted that the magazine photoshopped the picture, making her look thinner and even changing the color of their clothes.
#15. Emma Watson
Emma is clearly a gorgeous woman – one that doesn’t need a Photoshop. We would like to believe they only enhanced her features. She already has clear skin but made her skin smoother and even made her eyes brighter.
