It's true, we're being fooled. Our impression of what is beautiful is being tweaked and we don't even realize it. I was floored when I saw the work put in to making on shot for an add. I'm also sure that this is not even the full picture the real work and amount of time it takes to make a model "ready" for the camera.
As girls we constantly want to become and more importantly, be viewed as more beautiful. It's sometimes so frustrating looking at those magazines in the checkout line which are covered in "perfect" women. Plastic surgery is on the rise and the age of women getting work done is declining.
And the poor boys/men out there you see these same faces (and bodies) in magazines too. WARNING-WARNING-WARNING you too are being fooled if you think these girls really look the way you are seeing them in print. I think there are a lot of guys who get married and are really disappointed in the wife because she doesn't "measure up" to the image. And frankly, we can't, it's impossible, unless of course we have a Super-Team available to assist us on a daily, or more realistically an hourly basis.
