Today’s influencer beauty standards are unobtainable without the power of Photoshop. What you see in your social media feed doesn’t match up with reality. But some people tend to forget that.

Even beloved celebrities who spend a huge amount of time on their image can fall short of the standard that social media now seems to demand. The founder of the ‘Goddess Women’ Instagram page photoshops pics of well-known stars to show what they would look like if they actually did look like some influencers.

The account has amassed a whopping 377k followers. However, the project has split the internet and people have mixed opinions on it. Some believe that the account promotes unrealistic beauty standards. Meanwhile, others believe that the project starts up an important discussion about these very same standards.

Bored Panda got in touch with the founder of ‘Goddess Women’ and spoke with her about the entire project. She explained that her main goal is to create art with photo-editing software. She aims to see what can be done with Photoshop and actually supports natural looks. And her skills have already been noticed by celebrities themselves. Read on for our full interview. Meanwhile, we also got in touch with LA-based celebrity expert Mike Sington, known as Hollywood's Ultimate Insider. Scroll down to see what he had to say, too.

Bored Panda wanted to understand what the founder of ‘Goddess Women’ thinks of her critics who believe that she promotes unrealistic body standards by photoshopping celeb photos.

“I understand them, but they should know it's just Photoshop, it's art,” she told us, suggesting that her critics are taking everything a bit too seriously.

“No one needs these filters and skills, but it's amazing what we can create with them. Sometimes, I show before-and-after Photoshop in my stories.”

The creator of the Instagram page shared how she first got started. “I started this account in September 2018. I just posted some edits for fun and then I saw how many people liked my work and that motivated me!”

“I think that people are obsessed to look perfect because of the followers and likes they get with their ‘perfection.’ It's sad, but you get a lot more attention on social media when you look good.”

She added: “I just wanna say to all the girls and boys be yourself. You are beautiful the way you are! And I wanna thank all my followers for supporting my work, I love y'all so much!”

Meanwhile, celebrity expert Mike told Bored Panda a bit about celebrities and their image.

"I think it’s sad we actually have ‘modern beauty standards’ celebrities feel they have to meet. We’re all expected to look flawless, celebrities and their fans too. The celebrities, and ourselves, have created a false image of how people are supposed to look," Mike told us.

He told us that many celebrities today are their image. Things have certainly changed from how they used to be. "In the past, you had to have talent, now though, a photoshopped image is often all that’s needed to be famous. Celebrities that don’t rely on image have greater staying power," Mike said.

"The public is aware of a photoshopped image, because so many people are photoshopping their own images. Both fans and celebrities can create a false image with an app, but no one can create talent using an app," he said.

Just realized how bitchy the influencer beauty Standard really is. Ever girl looks like fresh from a porn, disgusting! Their natural beauty is way more than a dumb f**k-me-face.
