*FP! I'd like to thank everyone but spesh Julia Robetrs for making this retouch possible by looking like a tramps sleeping bag before post production.

# Sadly accurate, but...
... this is how an actual "touch-up"* professional did it - makeupmag.com/issues/id/562/

The real photograph is the one on the right, and the de-ageing was done by Amy Dresser who does do this kind of thing for a living. The article (sadly not available online) had some other astounding adjustments.

* - "touch-up" - pffft!

# Unfortunately, I work for a company that does a lot of L'Oreal/Lancome advertising...
The sad truth of some of the projects I work on is that they have a disgraceful amount of retouching done. On the flip side, everyone knows this so it just makes them look like prize bell-ends!

# I'm loving all the disclaimers our ads are obliged to put up
esp the ones for eyelash make-up, which basically flash up 'This ad is a load of CGI bollocks' under every one.

Also that one for a toothpaste where a guy shines a magical light at the woman's teeth and surprisingly it tells him she needs to buy his product!

'Dramatisation, we may have been watching CSI!'

# I don't know what everyone's getting so excited about.
It's happened since Year Dot. If you paint a portrait of the king, you'd better make sure he's handsome, or you'll find yourself six inches shorter. If you're Stalin's photographer, then you'd better make sure you take two shots and keep the originals in case he falls out with someone.

Adverts don't tell the truth - who knew?

It strikes me as little people complaining that it's all so unfair.

# It's good that folks are made aware of it tho
and it would be better if we curbed it a bit when dealing with age-defying beautifying expensive BS goo.

Some folks are actually ruining their face by applying too much product, desperate to stay as perfect as the images they see all around them, instead ending up saggy faced orange nightmares.

I'm wondering when the shit may hit the fan over the motion-enabled equivalents that all celebs and actors are using in their vids and films now, I mean have you SEEN Madonna's vids lately compared to how she looks in interview or untouched paparazzi shots, sometimes I have to wonder if there's even any part of her onscreen anymore.

# I can't claim to have watched a Madonna video since Justify My Love, I'm afraid, but I've seen some of the pap shots of her in the paper.
Those arms give me the fearhorn.

# TBH I'm not even sure she's still producing anything anymore
but the last one I saw was so adjusted she looked like a mannequin, uncanny valley big style...

# I shan't be buying that it did nothing to her neck
and I don't think I would like to go out with a big "Before/After" tag floating below my chin I'll stick to the bags and wrinkles I've earnt them ;)

I think some before and after tags would really bring out your eyes :)
