Celebrities are among the most admired people today. They have followers vast enough to compete with some religions. This is why they need to appear perfect or close to it. Anything less can turn their followers away.
They don’t mislead their flock with just makeup and cover up anymore. They have a new weapon: Photoshop. Photoshop doesn’t only cover up flaws, it replaces them as if they were never there. Just like make up, Photoshop use continues to improve, becoming more reliable and making celebrities depend on it more. It can change anything from wrinkles to body size, definition, as well as – size – down there. It can change anything on a person to suit a specific marketing campaign. It can make them appear perfect. The only flaws are when the original photos are leaked.
Companies even use it on their models. Some question this practice because they feel it sends the wrong message to young women. Looked at from a businesses perspective, if the models are more relatable, young girls may not be inspired to buy their products.
While many utilize it to the maximum, others oppose it, allowing the world to see them for who they are.
