Kansas-based hair colorist Ursula Goff recently shared these two selfies side-by-side to show the same things can be presented in drastically different ways with a carefully planned photo.
“So I didn’t edit either one of these photos, but they were taken just a few days apart,” Goff writes. “I think it’s important to note that lighting, angles, facial expression, and make-up make a huge difference in photography and presentation (especially in my case!).”
“Social media can make it easy to feel like everyone else is awesome and perfect all the time, but that’s really never true,” she continues. “We should keep in mind that behind every pretty face or perfect lifestyle is a regular person, and that there’s really no point in comparing amongst ourselves because this is all cultivated.”
