The rise of selfie culture has changed the way we perceive beauty beyond recognition. It blurred the boundary between the real and the false, the natural and the purely imaginary. At first, when photo editing and heavy filters hit social media, everyone was kidding at first.

Kids as young as ten are retouching their selfies with ready-to-use augmented reality face filters that often slim, shrink, and enhance their faces and bodies. But the result is often anything but pretty. And now, many social media influencers are being arrested for using these filters to alter their identities and create fake personas.

It’s no mystery that a few pass as ways to push this fakery to its very limits, wherein the network r/InstagramReality steps in. “It’s fantastic how a few humans escape with it even as others don’t!” the subreddit writes on its page
