Visual Lit Final - Suberting Beauty: Natural by artisticTaurean Visual Lit Final - Suberting Beauty: Natural by artisticTaurean
This is one of the image manips I did for my Visual Literacy final. We had the choice of writing a 6-8 page paper or making a visual argument that was the equivalent of 6-8 pages. I chose to make a magazine of sorts aimed at taking what the media portrays as ideal and challenging it. I chose to focus on six different types of beauty: Cultural, body-positive, older, androgynous, unique, and natural. I took ads out of the May 2014 Cosmopolitan magazine, scanned them in, and got to work in Photoshop. :D (Big Grin)

Last one! Also the last one I worked on, and the hardest one to figure out. I knew I wanted this one to be my "natural beauty" image, but couldn't figure out text. I finally ended up using a quote I found on Pinterest. ^^; The model's name is Sasha Luss, and the natural pic on the right uses her face from another image that had natural makeup on as opposed to the crazy-bright red lip and dark eye thing. I'm a huge fan of natural beauty. If it takes makeup for you to look good, fine, but don't go crazy, you know? Like the picture says, it should be used to enhance what's there. That's my view anyway. I'll get off my soapbox. XD

Original ads are of course NOT mine and were only altered for educational purposes!
