Who's to say what true beauty is nowadays? Society has manufactured our perception of beauty with softwares such as Photoshop to "perfect" an image that is unrealistic. Many models are made thinner and transformed into characters that do not naturally look like themselves. So what does this say to younger girls seeking for role models in magazines such as Seventeen? The Keep It Real campaign is gathering girls to protest for three days through social media chains such as blogging and Twitter with the goal to get magazines to publish at least ONE non-photoshopped image of a model in future issues.
Glasses, freckles, crooked teeth, they all fall in the list of features that make a girl unique. However in magazines it is almost impossible to find characteristics such as these. There's absolutely nothing wrong with showing off what yo momma gave ya ladies! So howcome our unique features are being hidden under electronic brushes and erasers resulting in a lie? Girls need to understand that we are all human in the end and their imperfections are what makes them beautiful and UNIQUE... so flaunt them! We want magazines to understand this as well and start showing their viewers true beauty in their photographs! Join us by Tweeting the #KeepItReal campaign now! :)
