Celebrity Airbrushing! 10 Celebrity Moms Who Were Totally Retouched for Ads

Are Ads Being Retouched Too Much?

There has been an uproar over a couple of over airbrushed ads featuring celebrity moms Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington. The make-up ads underwent so much retouching that the Advertising Standards Authority in the United Kingdom “deemed the airbrushing used in post-production to be misleading to the consumer,” and banned the ads.

In England they are fighting “overly perfected and unrealistic images” of women, especially in ads. And these two ads certainly have been retouched to an extreme. But for good reason, Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington are both very busy working moms, of course they’re going to have dark circles, uneven skin and wrinkles, but to sell make up, those flaws won’t do hence the airbrushing. But as a consumer (and a mom) it’s nice to know that they’ve had some post-production help because trying to live up to that standard of beauty would be impossible.

Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington aren’t the only celebrity moms who have been touched up for selling a product, check out these other eight beautiful moms who got a little extra help right here.
