Shocking Images Of Celebrities Before And After Photoshop

Entertainment | By Ray Porter | October 24, 2017

The fashion industry and magazines have been one of the main propagators of unrealistic images of beauty. They are one of the main reasons body image issues and eating disorders have swept the globe like an epidemic. They find the skinniest, symmetrically featured 1 in a thousand models, often these models re not necessarily putting their health first either to maintain their appearance. The other half of this trickery is just plain deception in the form of photoshopped images.

Eva Mendes

Despite being a favourite in Hollywood, and undeniably gorgeous it doesn't mean she doesn't have a day off every now and then, or at least that's what looked like in this shoot. In the unedited photo it looks like Eva's just rolled out of bed straight into this shoot.


Russia seems to have an interesting image of Beyonce in their minds. In 2007 Russia's "Joy" magazine featured Beyonce on their cover, but something was a little off with the picture. They drastically lightened her skin tone. In 2009 Russian magazine "Glamour" got a hold of the same picture only to drastically darken her skin.


Madonna is one of the superstars of this world that seems to have aged the best. For a long time she seemed immune to wrinkles and tended to look at least 20 years younger than she was. Fans were shocked in 2010 when un-photoshopped pictures from her Dolce and Gabbana photo shoot were leaked.

Britney Spears

Britney Spears has lead a rough and notorious life. Her mental breakdown was well publicized, but she did, however, stage a comeback. As part of this comeback, she appeared on the cover of "Marie Clare" magazine. The un-photoshopped versions of this picture show the toll her life has taken on her.

She Did It Again

In 2010 un-photoshopped pictures of Britney surfaced again. The singer had signed a contract to be the face of "Candie's" shoe brand. Before the ads came out Britney agreed to release the original versions of the photos simultaneously. Fans were shocked by the differences.

Tyra Banks

Tyra Banks is a woman of many talents and careers ranging from businesswoman to actress. She was also a well renowned model previously. From 1997- 2005 she was a Victoria's Secret Agent. Her unedited photos were shocking for another reason, as it appeared she didn't need photoshop.

Mariah Carey

The art of photoshopping is very intricate and complex. It's a mysterious art to those of us who've never attempted it. Someone at the online celebrity tabloid, "Jezebel", released a gif that started to unveil the secrets of the process. She labelled everything that was done to her 2014 photo.

Jenifer Lawrence

For some inexplicable reason, that just so happens to how unrealistic and perverted editors for these high fashion shoots can be, the editor decided to slim down Jenifer Lawrence's waist and arms. Jennifer was already in perfect health and appearance and now she looks like a scare crow.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry is a gorgeous superstar, and her suggestive songs have made her somewhat of a modern sex symbol. The before photoshop images of her reveal some natural flaws to her perfect face and skin. Showing that the perfect skin we all strive for is not naturally occurring.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has a very skinny body type to begin with. She doesn't carry around extra fat and her curves are naturally more flat and sleek. This photo editor wasn't happy with that. He decided Miley needed to appear even skinnier while inflating her curves.

Kris Jenner

Kris Jenner is an American Television personality that rose to fame starring in the series 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'. Her fans were shocked when they compared the photoshopped images to the originals in her shoot with Gordon Ramsay.

Candice Huffine

Candice Huffine has made her career as a plus sized model on her curves but even her photos aren't untouched. She gets a little help from the photoshop brush and unbelievably most of it is focussed on slimming her down.


The lead female vocals of the 'Black Eyed Peas' receives a little help from the old little bits of tweaking. It's not just the lighting that gets changed but she seems to be getting a little bit on in years. But photoshop can fix that.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie is arguably the world's most beautiful woman, or at least one of the most beautiful. Her prominent features that have given her this status are her large prominent lips and symmetrical face. It seems real beauty just isn't enough for some editors.
