Seniors as Instagram Models

It's never too late to metamorphosize into a beautiful social media butterfly.

In recent years, there has been a sweeping movement throughout Instagram in which young and attractive women act as “models” to produce posts saturated with cheap product-placement. Devoting countless hours toward outfit selection, photo shoots, and makeup, these models take their frivolous jobs very seriously. However, sometimes that arduous routine is not enough to cultivate the online attention that they need in order to support their high standard of living. A quick and reliable fix? FaceTune.

If you are unfamiliar with the FaceTune, it is one of the most popular mobile photoshopping applications. Instagram models are notorious for their dependency on this app, and the addiction is gradually becoming a concerning crisis; models are reaching extremes as they fabricate completely new subjects of their photos, FaceTuning themselves to the point where they are unrecognizable.

Fascinated by such odd human behavior, I took it upon myself to FaceTune several volunteers from the Academic Magnet Class of 2019. Here are the results:
