In today’s world where social media dominates the way you think; every time you take a picture, the first thought that comes to mind is whether it’s good enough to put up on Facebook, one tends to constantly live in a virtual world. Hair colourist Ursula Goff brings home the point of how people are so involved in building their virtual image that they almost ignore living like the regular person behind those ‘perfect photographs’ and ‘perfect life’.
Goff posted two pictures that were taken a few days apart. One without her hair and make-up done and another all decked up. She looks completely different in both the pictures. “I think it’s important to note that lighting, angles, facial expression, and make-up make a huge difference in photography and presentation,” she wrote.
Goff spoke of the pressure one unconsciously feels to keep pace with the virtual world full of people showing how amazing their life is. “Social media can make it easy to feel like everyone else is awesome and perfect all the time, but that’s really never true. 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,” she added.
