Nowadays, nearly everyone you meet will be on social media.
Have you ever wondered if the people you see on social media look anything like their profiles? A TikTokker has gone viral for exposing that people could be very fake online.
Pulling Back The Curtain
Holly is a 27-year-old woman who lives in the United Kingdom.
She has exploded on TikTok after a video she made about proving how pictures on social media could be fake received over 6 million views!
Uses Her Own Pictures As An Example
In the video, she takes pictures that are in her camera and edits them.
The transformation that the pictures go through is quite surprising as she makes herself look like an entirely different person.
Bathing Suit Brush Up
She uses an app that makes her skin look a lot more tanned, smoother, and softer.
She even adds a perfectly white smile into this picture where, in the original, she is not even smiling.
She Also Edits Her Boyfriend
Holly then moves on to pictures of not only her but her boyfriend as well.
Through her excessive edits, she makes them both look like perfectly tanned and smiling models.
Living A Double Life
These edits bring up the bigger question of should we believe the pictures that we see on our social media feeds?
Her pictures look like they have been professionally edited!
Completely Changing How They Look
The initial video was so popular that she turned it into a series on her account.
In her captions and comments, she said she decided to do it to show people that they should never compare themselves to or believe what they see on social media.
Holly is able to have her pictures appear like they were taken during a photoshoot.
Every one of the edited pictures looks so realistic that you can hardly tell she's made such extensive alternations.
People May Not Be Who You Think They Are
Holly's videos have received thousands of views and people want to know her editing secrets.
In this picture, she is able to completely change her hair from being up in a ponytail to a perfect blowout.
Full Body Transformation
This side-by-side picture shows how she is even able to subtly change things other than her face.
In the edited picture, she has given herself a bit of a bigger booty.
This close-up picture shows that she makes her face appear to have perfectly smooth skin free of any blemishes.
This is not the case as the picture on the right shows, and we're sure most of us can relate.
Always Looking Perfect
Social media has created a culture where people always appear to be looking their best.
Even this picture of her in a housecoat with her hair up has been made to look like she just had her makeup professionally done.
Out For Drinks
In this transformation, Holly has taken a picture where she is already looking beautiful and changed it even more.
This is part of the point she is trying to make—no matter how good a picture is originally, it can always be touched up and altered.
Always Appearing Happy
Holly has edited herself and her boyfriend in this picture to look like they are both smiling.
She has seamlessly even added a pearly white smile into a picture where she was not originally smiling with her teeth.
This picture in her workout gear out is another example of the edits she can make to her body.
She has edited the sides of her body to look thinner and slightly more toned.
Swimsuit Model-Quality Makeovers
The body edits are also on display in this swimsuit picture.
She is able to bring in her sides just above her hips to shape her body in addition to adding a smile.
This picture of Holly basking in the sun by the pool has also been made to look like she is a swimsuit model.
From the perfectly wide smile and long flowing hair to her edited body, it is all done through an app!
