Hello there folks,
I was just wondering what your guys opinions were on airbrushing and photoshop work in magazines. With so many images being 'worked' nowadays I was curious what you all thought. Especially when it comes to MUAs, do they have any say in whether the finished look is changed?

Tough one. Sometimes makeup can look a little obvious under certain lighting, I find anything that's powdered under natural daylight looks awful, like someone powdered over gravel or something (maybe that's just my skin and open pores talking), but under fluorescent lighting looks better. Or maybe it's the other way around...

As A die hard fan of makeup and it's expert application I have to say I disagree with post production digital application. It seems so awfully pointless. Having said that nothing like a bit of expert photoshop to really neaten up those lines.

I have no say what so ever!
Its not my copyright.

Sometimes I think it enhances an image but I hate it when PS is used to slim someone down or fatten them up. I just find it a bit upsetting.

I feel retouching should definitely have its place in this industry. It's only a problem for me when it's overly photoshopped such as unrealistically smooth skin (ie. no visible pores or texture to the skin) or as Sam said, heavily altering someone's body or someone's work (hair, makeup, etc).

Here's an awesome example of some great retouching:

If you hover over the images, you can see what the image used to look like. The only major alteration was just adding a bit of volume to the hair, which I think improves the image.. but otherwise its just fixing things that maybe others missed or couldn't be done with just makeup (ex. the eyebrow hairs missing, the white of the eyeballs, etc).

Oh god! That is so depressing! I mean i'm all for 'Natural Beauty' (at the right moments, and for god's sake not without a bit of concealer..) but that's so shocking! I can't help but prefer the retouched picture, plainly for shallow aesthetic reasons.

That's not very encouraging. I pride myself on being able to enjoy the inner beauty in everyone but maybe when it comes to commercialism i'm just damn shallow.

People just have to keep in mind that its all about selling a product or image, and be able to separate reality from this. We naturally are attracted by beauty, and that's how companies are able to sell us on stuff. I'm sure if I saw that woman walking down that street, I would think she is just as gorgeous in person because it's just ridiculous to assume someone has no flaws, even if they're stunning on the exterior.
