A social experiment has gone viral on the internet. It can be found on photography websites, feminist websites, even site like Bored Panda and Pulptatsic. A young journalist from the US named Esther Honig submitted a plain makeup-less portrait of herself and the idea was to have retouchers from around the globe Photoshop her face to their country's beauty standards.
While it sounds interesting and otherwise should have been, the retouching work is SO BAD in some of the images, it almost seems like a joke. While some people seem fascinated by it I can't really take it seriously because it looks like a grade school kid did it.
Obvious and severe makeup was added. In some images the skin was soften so much she looks like a cartoon. The retoucher from the US actually skewed her face to the point that she barely looks human. The jewelry added is just horrible.
You can check out some of the images below, see for yourself, come up with your own opinions. If you'd like to see them all (not all of them are horrible) you can check them out here
