Firstly guys let me just say how interesting the last few weeks have been, ive learnt so much concerning internet and how social media affects our everyday life. In this last post I would like to briefly touch upon the influence that social media has on individuals (females in particular). As females we obsessed with looking good but do we take this a bit to far? Perfume adverts present a stereotypical image of how we want to look as the models have been emphasised to look beautiful. Phone apps such as facetune, afterlight and Instasize have been created to transform the way females look. personally, I feel like these apps have been formed due to female insecurities however it removes their actual identity and makes them something they want to be.
I have so many friend that use this app to change the size of their hips, the structure of there face and even the tone of their skin, is it all worth it? On YouTube lifestyle blogger and make-up enthusiast, Patricia Bright, even gives a tutorial on how to use such editing apps which shows that editing has become the norm in society.
What do you guys think? Is social media affecting body images and appearances? Leave your comments below thanks
