Material World

Hi peeps,

If you aren’t familiar with xovain head on over and familiarise yourself with a super cool site written by a creative smorgasbord of beauty lovers.

I read this article last year and it always stuck with me when I skim the pages of a magazine. I’ve worked on jobs as a retoucher before and I know just how easy it is to manipulate a person’s face or body into something more “appealing” to the audience. So I found this article to be interesting as both a reader and a retouching artist.

I believe any publisher must disclose all edited material, hopefully we’ll get there one day but for now please don’t compare yourself to unachievable standards of beauty because none of it is real!
