Now we all know that airbrushing, retouching, and photoshopping are the norm these days when it comes to celebrity photos. It seems that none of us readers really know how a celebrity truly looks like in real life because they are always caked with makeup and their magazine covers and print ads are ALWAYS heavily edited.
I am not against a pretty picture. In fact, a little retouching or editing to sell a product or a magazine is fine. But when the final picture turrns out ugly because of the editing, then we've got a problem. A good editing job is fine. A terrible one is unforgivable. Below are ridiculous photo retouching jobs. They will make you laugh hard and cringe at the same time.
Disclaimer: I am not against the celebrities in these photos. I will not say anything terrible about them. This post is about the terrible editing job that the team behind the photos did.
1. Lindsay Lohan for Harper's Bazaar
What did they do to Lindsay's skin? Is it just me or do her lips look pasted on? Poor Lindsay, she looks like an inanimate object here.
