"Instagram Vs. Reality" Video Exposes The Truth That Everyone Needs To See.

Whether we want to admit it or not, we’ve all done some retouching on our photos before posting.

But there are some folks who take Photoshop to the extreme and forget about what the human body looks like. In this instance, this young woman is trying to get the perfect photo, which is admittedly frightening because she seems to be missing her rib cage.

To her 2.5 million Instagram followers, media personality Trisha Paytas is a blonde bombshell.

Some might even call her a cross between Pamela Anderson and a Barbie doll. But while her Insta-posts are flawless, not everything is what it appears to be, especially after someone called her out on her Insta-lie. But is she really lying or did they just found the worst possible photo they could find of this YouTuber?

YouTube star Ethan Klein’s H3H3 channel decided to out Trisha Paytas for overdoing it with Photoshop.

Klein shared some behind-the-scenes techniques and side-by-side imagery of their “perfect” makeovers. But as you might imagine, Trisha wasn’t amused when her editing techniques were exposed.

What you see isn’t always what you get when you look at influencers online.

Overbrushed photos are often the preferred technique for most Instagram influencers as it can give them an unrealistic look that is a huge departure from the real thing. But many do it because they’re afraid of being judged negatively for looking anything less than perfect. So perhaps, we're all collectively pushing each other to try to look our very best, no matter what it takes. Plus, let's face it! The airbrushed photo will probably get a ton more likes than the raw candid one.

No one seems happy with themselves anymore, and it might have to do with the curtain of perfection.

But once you pull the curtain away, you realize that photos these days get some serious buff. Influencers, models, and celebrities, like Justin Bieber, get acne and blemishes just like the rest of us. They simply have to look flawless because it’s how they earn their bread and butter.
