One Woman Sent Her Photo To 25 Countries To Give Her A Makeover…See The Results!

About face: Esther Honig, 24, sent this unretouched portrait to participants in more than 25 countries with the request 'Make me look beautiful'If you were asked this question: “What’s your perception of beauty?” What would your answer be?

That’s exactly what one journalist, 24 year old Esther Honig set out to do when she sent this unretouched portrait of herself to participants in more than 25 countries with the request ‘Make me look beautiful.’

Miss Honig says she undertook this project because:

In the U.S. Photoshop has become a symbol of our society’s unobtainable standards for beauty. My project, Before & After, examines how these standards vary across cultures on a global level.”

Let’s see how each country presented what they thought was the most beautiful makeover for Esther…

Miss Honig says what she ultimately learned from the project is this:

“Photoshop allows us to achieve our unobtainable standards of beauty, but when we compare those standards on a global scale, achieving the ideal remains all the more illusive.”
