L’Oreal Told To Pull U.K. Ads Featuring Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington For Looking Too Airbrushed

Most of us have fallen victim to the clothes not fitting us like the mannequin. And some have even fallen for, my face doesn’t look flawless like the ad shows.

British advertising authorities have told L’Oreal it went too far touching up Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington faces for their make-up ads. The cosmetics firm was ordered to pull the way too airbrushed ads from magazines in the U.K.

Although L’Oreal declined to provide the “before airbrushing” photos, they did admit to lightening Turlington’s skin and reducing dark shadows around her eyes, among other tweaks, but claims it left signs of aging like crow’s feet.

A lawmaker who has long lobbied against unrealistic images of women in advertising said:

“Excessive airbrushing and digital manipulation techniques have become the norm, but both Christy Turlington and Julia Roberts are naturally beautiful women who don’t need retouching to look great.”

This ban sends a powerful message to advertisers: “Let’s get back to reality.”

In my own humble opinion, No woman has perfect porcelain skin. We all have flaws, we need to get back to loving who we are and stop trying to change what our mother’s gave us! Make-up or no make-up everyone is beautiful in their own unique ways.
