Does Real Beauty Still Exist ?

In a world of Instagram filters, plumped up lips, contoured faces and let’s not forget the perfect shaped symmetrical eyebrows is it any wonder that beauty has now became completely distorted.
It only takes a quick scroll on an Instagram feed to see thousands of images of surgically enhanced faces filtered to perfection, this trend is now featured on the high street as the number of young people having cosmetic surgeries is on the rise. It is now a common sight to see young girls walking around with overly plumped up lips, fake eyelashes and of course the mermaid mane of hair extensions.
