Disillusioned Beauty

Implications - Social media has allowed for celebrities and companies to build brands based on transparency, making it easier for consumers to build a connection with them. This is taken a step further with disillusioned beauty. Willingly showing a side of themselves free of airbrushing, makeup or any other aesthetic-enhancing tricks, those who dare to show their honest selves gain an advantage over competitors by establishing themselves as genuine.
