In the world of unrealistic standards and Photoshop mania, real beauty is a breath of fresh air. And while some share their unedited selfies on Instagram, Olga Kamenetskaya creates gorgeous dolls that look almost real.

Olga is a Ukranian artist who started repainting dolls as a hobby, but it later turned into her profession. She takes mass-produced dolls, such as Monster High girls or Barbies, and turns them into totally new, unique and one-of-the-kind dolls. They each have little "flaws," like real people have, which she includes by not only repainting but also modifying dolls' shapes and working with wigs. “I don’t like when the new face of the doll is ideal and perfectly symmetrical, it makes it lifeless,” Olga told Vogue. “I always deliberately leave some flaw that may not be noticeable to everyone, but [gives] the doll invisible charisma. Perhaps, this flawed beauty is the message that my dolls carry.”

Below you can find some of the amazing "flawed" beauties by Olga Kamenetskaya.

If not for the doll's neck, you could believe it to be a real person!

Good job on the repaint. However, I kinda like the expression of the one on the left. She looks annoyed and cynical. That's... Pretty real.

Is that Raven queen? She looks better after but I kind of wish it kept her hair even though I love the new hair

I like that the Monster High ones are keeping with the theme of the doll, rather than changing them completely.

Gave myself bangs like that once in the mid-80s, when they were decidedly not in style. This is what happens when you attempt to perfect straight bangs in the summer, on a tropical island, on curly hair with paper scissors.

Here I prefer the lefr one, to be honest. But the repaint is good too.

This difference in the face expression, from kind to kinda aggressive, pretty much calls for a meme. (Pretty good, btw)
