Nowadays it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s not. Most of the images that we see in social media or magazines have been more or less altered using photo editing software and that has been putting unrealistic beauty standards in our heads and slowly distorting our understanding of reality itself. But some people refuse to put up with this and want to open people’s eyes to the truth.

Two beautiful plus-size models, Diana Sirokai and Callie Thorpe teamed up with professional photographer Karizza to show how the media takes photo manipulation to a different level. Diana and Callie had their picture taken and Karizza used photoshop to make extreme body image edits.

“I have to say we look amazing both ways”, Diana wrote on her Instagram post. “The purpose of this was to show you all how magazines and the media take editing to a different level. Models and celebrities do not even look like themselves in those photoshopped images. We live in such a fake world it’s time to bring real back. Own who you are and slay!”

Take a look at the before and after images of the beautiful women below and let us know what you think.

These two beautiful ladies, Callie on the left and Diana on the right, decided to show how magazines and the media takes editing to a different level

They asked a professional photographer to use photoshop on their bodies to show how much can be changed using computer software

In the same post, they showed the original image encouraging people to “Own who you are and slay “

This was not the first time these ladies spread the body positivity message

Last month Diana shared an image of her body next to Kim Kardashian with an empowering note – “We are both women with different bodies”

The main message of these girls is that everyone should love themselves and that’s something that everyone can get behind
