Ready for a heavy reality check? This video by lifestyle blogger Marianna Hewitt illuminates just how much effort goes into those “effortless” selfies your favorite fashion blogger posts on Instagram. Most of us are well aware that a little creative filtering is the key to a quality Insta shot, but this video opens a whole new Pandora’s box of apps and editing tricks all responsible for that flawless sheen of one little photo. If anything, I appreciate Hewitt’s honesty about her edits. It’s refreshing! In the videos, she even reveals exactly what tools to download so you can do the same for yourself, if you’re so inclined. Watch Hewitt thicken her hair, make blemishes disappear, and erase fly-aways. It’s mystifying!
