Lose Weight, Get an Extreme Makeover, Instantly!

Lose weight now, Ask Me How!

Lindsay Lohan Gets a Lot of Help

The Perfect Lie: Photoshop Transformation

It was the hair adverts that set me thinking …. Have you noticed how adverts for hair products show models with impossibly beautiful, impossibly shiny, impossibly bouncy hair! So I thought to myself this has to be computer enhanced, air brushed or whatever.

So how would you like to drop 50 kilos (lose hundred pounds! That sounds even more fantastic) in a few minutes? Look at the first video here to see how this is done; a plus plus plus size woman (frankly fat is also a term that occurs) being transformed into something altogether different! I know that a lot of you may be familiar with how much a person’s look can be altered by technology but you have to see this to believe it!

This one is part of the Dove Viral: the video shows how, step by step, a woman is transformed by the combined aid of modern make up and modern technology; she is transformed to an extent that she bears little resemblance to her earlier self!

Notice how makeup and hair styling transforms her unremarkable complexion into a flawless facade and how the hair styling glams her up. Then in the end they actually manage to elongate her neck and further enhance her appearance thru computer trickery!  While you have to admire how innovative and talented people are, you realize at the same time that people in magazines don’t really look that good!

There were a lot of videos out there about celebrity makeovers but they were not nearly as dramatic or as startling as these ones above. But I included this one of Lindsay Lohan because this also gives you an idea about how you don’t even need a good makeup artist, just a Photoshop artist will do!

And here’s another one that will give you a botox job and a nose job and all the rest without you ever having to visit a plastic surgeon:

      Oh, this is definitely the kind of makeover I need. Photoshop is ever so much fun. Too bad I'm not very good at using it. Thanks for the hub. Hello to you!
