Watch Hours of High-End Retouching Completed in Seconds in This Short Video

We already know that most of the images we see in advertising aren’t 100% real. And though we understand that retouching is a regular thing in the industry, it’s amazing to see how much the photographs we see in the media have actually been retouched. A new series of videos done by a professional retoucher shows you must how much work goes into getting that perfect final image. 

Retoucher Elizabeth Moss has released videos showing hours of retouching work condensed down to a few seconds. In the videos, you get to see how retouching experts widen eyes, clean up stray hairs and even add pores to the faces of models. “These videos are unique because none of the high-end retouchers make these type of videos,” Moss explained to Peta Pixel. “So the quality of the other before and after retouching videos available online are pretty terrible and not at all representative of what is typically done on high fashion editorials and campaigns.”

Moss wanted people to see just how the professionals work their magic. But if these videos prove anything, it’s that we all need to stop holding ourselves up to the impossible standards we see illustrated in ad campaigns and spreads. Already beautiful women are subject to hours of retouching, whether they have too many pores or too few. In the world of Photoshop, everyone is imperfect and nothing is what it seems.

Camille Rowe Nude on Lui’s May 2015 Cover Sets Pulses Racing (Forum Buzz)

Back in September 2013 when Lui resumed publication, we knew for a fact the magazine was set to push boundaries, providing both stimulating covers and content. The provocative French title has already delivered unforgettable covers featuring the likes of Gisele Bündchen and Rihanna. Lui‘s latest is sure to stick in our minds for a while too, having tapped Camille Rowe to bare all for the racy publication’s May 2015 edition and we’re loving the result of the Guy Bourdin-inspired shoot.

Lui Magazine May 2015 Camille Row by Luigi & Iango


Our forum members are full of praise. “It’s one of rare magazines that I look forward too. Love the cover, can’t wait for editorial,” raved KateTheGreatest the moment the cover surfaced.

“I love the cover, perfect for summer,” complimented lelaid.

In agreement was DutchHomme: “Gorgeous!! There is something vintage/timeless about this cover shot. One of my favorite Lui magazine covers that I have ever seen.” Then after the cover story found its way onto our forums, he returned and rejoiced, “WOW!”

“Wow wow wow,” KissMiss echoed.

Also full of admiration was kokobombon who wrote, “Love the 70s vibe of the color pics.”

Oxymore was quick to proclaim: “Gosh I love this magazine!”

“The editorial is a total rip off of Guy Bourdin & H.Newton work. They are going to say is an homage of course,” sniggered Frenchkiki, projecting a different opinion.

“I love everything about this. Homage/rip-off/whatever, I’d be more than happy to see more stuff like this in magazines again. Very beautifully done, very sexy and super striking,” Psylocke fired back right away.

Check out Camille’s accompanying cover story inside the thread and drop us a comment here.

L’Oreal Is Killing It in India

L’Oreal seems dedicated to multiethnic beauty and appealing to the growing market of customers from all over the world, of all different ethnicities. While L’Oreal is busy trying to get rid of “ethnic” beauty aisles here in the states in order to accommodate the ever-growing multiethnic market without making them feel excluded, they’re also taking steps overseas to make sure they’re bringing products their international markets will recognize and can relate to.

WWD chronicles L’Oreal’s expansion and tremendous success in India. L’Oreal is growing at lightning-fast speeds in the country, two and a half times as fast as the Indian beauty market itself. They credit their success to paying attention to the already-established beauty practices and staples in the country and including them in new products, or figuring out ways to improve on them. Take for example, their Colossal Kajal eyeliner, which draws from India’s centuries-old tradition with Kajal (which some might know as Kohl) eyeliner. The product has been wildly popular since they introduced it in 2011. New products they are introducing products to the market include cream hair dye, hair conditioner and face wash for men and it’s been paying off. in 2014, L’Oreal’s sales in India were at the tune of $31 million.

It seems that L’Oréal’s strategy for dominating the beauty industry lies in actually listening to their customers instead of imposing foreign traditions on them. Between India and their newfound commitment stateside to the multiethnic customer, L’Oréal is  making a statement that rejecting the status quo can have quite lucrative returns.

Mayhem Was Really Hands-on in Designing That Collection for J.Crew

We were thrilled when J.Crew announced it had tapped 5-year-old Mayhem, the social media sensation that along with her mom, creates miniature outfits out of paper, tape and other mundane household items, to design a range for their CrewCuts collection. But we couldn’t help but wonder how it would be for grown professionals to collaborate with a kid who is just old enough to be in kindergarten. 

According to the folks on the project, it worked out just fine. Mayhem’s mother Angie Keiser tells the Telegraph her daughter (then four) was very hands-on in the creative process. “‘Mayhem then put together her own design board, choosing colours and fabrics, and the rest of the playing and designing kept those colours in mind.” Crewcuts head designer Jenny Cooper says that Mayhem was very clear about her vision during the design process and expected to have to had to help the tiny designer a lot more as they put the collection together. 

But, since Mayhem is a kid, they did have to take into consideration that at times, she just needed to do little girl things. “Everyone knew and embraced that Mayhem was a little girl who liked having fun making stuff,” Mayhem’s mom said. “And when she got tired, it was totally OK that she took an impromptu nap in Jenny’s office.”

If only we adults were afforded such luxuries at our jobs.

Carlsberg and Swimsuits for All Release Perfect Responses to Protein World ‘Beach Body’ Ads

Carlsberg beer body ready

The Protein World “beach body ready” ads have sufficiently pissed people off, and now some brands are combating the message by releasing campaigns of their own. Carlsberg has added their two cents to the debate with an ad campaign that asks: Are you ready to drink beers all summer long in very little clothing?

The beer company has released ads picturing a beer bottle in tiny yellow bikini bottoms, with the tagline, “Are you beer body ready?” which is clearly a play on the controversial Protein World “Are you beach body ready?” verbiage. Protein World has already acknowledged the ads with a tweet basically thanking them for the added publicity, reading “If @carlsberg are getting involved, you know you are #winning.” 

Carlsberg’s senior brand manager Dharmesh Rana described the lighthearted message behind the new campaign. “We’ve decided to remind the public at major commuter spots across London that it’s not about the way you look or having probably the best body this summer, it’s about enjoying a Carlsberg whether you’re on the beach or at your local.”

Swimsuits for All has also put out its own cheeky but incredibly sexy response to the campaign, tapping outspoken plus-size model Ashley Graham to pose in a bikini (that it looks like she’s putting on… or taking off) asking the question, “Are you ready for this beach body?”


There’s no reason to hide and every reason to flaunt!! #curvesinbikinis

One look at those curves bangin’ out of control and our answer is: yes. We are absolutely ready.
