Don't believe everything you see. That's the take-home message of this nano-clip called 'The Power of Photoshop' (via Upworthy) currently making waves. If you had any doubt whatsoever as to the sheer deception—I mean, magic—that happens to models during and after shoots, consider it ancient history.

Watch, and unlearn everything you've ever been led to believe about beauty. Then play the video again, for your sister, your niece, your daughter and all her friends.
