We've all been guilty of tuning up a selfie just a little bit to make it Instagram worthy. Raise the contrast, choose a filter that hides dark circles, and you're set. But with the plethora of apps on the market that promise to make you look completely flawless, it has been impossible to keep up with the clear-complexion competition.

This video reveals how — with some precise tweaking — you can completely change what you look like. The model here uses a Photoshop-like program to narrow her nose, widen her eyes, and lighten her complexion, then layers in a makeup-applying tool to add blusher and eyeliner. The finished product looks nothing like her true face.

The fact that people don't feel beautiful in their own skin is truly heartbreaking. The point of sharing a makeup-free selfie is to feel comfortable exposing your flaws . . . not to appear superhuman. Instead of focusing on how to change our looks to unrealistic beauty standards, we should work to strengthen our self-confidence. As we go into 2016, we're using this video as a reminder to love our selfie — dark circles and all.
