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.

Focus just on her face, and the cool undertone with the freckles and contrasting brassy red hair. Porcelain completions really can be this pale, especially with redheads.

Why do the others look human, and this one is gross? I'm a pale redhead, but that is just ridiculous, and the eyes are completely hideous.

Fluffy I am. obey me. or else.

I like that she is still an alien ~ Her "Inhumanity" makes her extra perfect/imperfect?

The slight bulge of that left eye is what's so creepy. Very 3D.

Those reptilian eyes look very well done, look how they seem to bulge out a bit. I'd have to lock her in the closet at night to stop her from strangling me. *shivers*

All of these still have makeup on, and just looks like a totally different doll

Hey Jessica, these are re-paints. She removes the original painted make-up from the doll on the left and paints her differently. People have YouTube channels - like PoppenAtelier and Sugar Charm Shop. This artist's style is very realistic, but achieved with paint nonetheless.

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.

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