this doesn’t apply to just Michelle but a lot of public figures I’ve seen promoting this. Michelle or any well off person who deals with bitcoin did not make their money from just bitcoin. Bitcoin, like any other form of stock or bond trading can you make you win big or lose big. And I highly doubt Michelle is going to talk about the endless HUGE risks of losing.
It’s capped at 21 million and 18 million of them are already made and a lot of those lost due to misplacement of the codes. On top of that it’s such a volatile currency jumping down from being $10,000 to $8,700 just this week alone. I’m not saying bitcoin is a sham, it can be profitable, but Michelle’s audience doesn’t have the luxury to invest in something so risky and untrackable and the fact that she’s promoting something like this raises some questions but maybe that’s just me. we can already expect she’s going to sugar coat the whole talk and can assume there was money involved getting her to talk at this conference. The whole thing is a sales pitch.
this really interesting and recent article from Forbes does a better job at explaining: https://www.forbes.com/sites/investor/2020/05/12/3-traps-to-avoid-when-trading-bitcoin-and-crypto/
I started following Berry around March when she had 18.4K followers on twitter and she’s now down to 18.1K maybe because her followers are losing interest in her new content. But I truly believe she’s growing up and leaving her shoop phase behind. I personally think she looks great tbh!
The selfie where she’s lying down was two days ago the one with the burger was from April 23rd look really natural and unfiltered. Her mirror selfie where it looks more like her retouched photos is from March 1st but she no longer shoops a Dorito chin which I am super happy about. And last pic is from February where she looks more like herself. sidenote her animal crossing character is tanned and is supposed to be her so I feel like she’s putting an end to the white washing nonsense. *would put everything in spoiler but I’m on mobile
This is very true that the camera lenses can distort the image, but in her case, a huge percentage of the distortion comes from post-shoot photoshop ON TOP of distortion from the lens which is why her photos look so off time to time. Nothing wrong with editing for the anime cosplay look, but what's the point of even posting this spiel if she's going to exclude the point of photo manipulation as well? I never trust any cosplayer who blame facial differences on lens distortion when they don't have a single professionally shot video on an actual camera (which is supposed to be the more "accurate" representation of them)
Looks exactly like the same procedure yungelita had done and I know 2 people irl who had the same surgery for the teardrop implants. Also not too sure why she's so sensitive about the question of if her breasts are real or not? sis got her WHOLE face done - does it really matter if her breasts are legit too? Her bs snowflake answer "i had bewbs when i was 13!!1!!" ain't fooling anyone. she's barely got any photos of her body or face from 2015 which is super sus.
I can understand the argument she's making, and there's nothing exactly wrong with editing here and there just like how there's no issue with Snow or facetune - I use it, my friends use it, heck a lot of people online do, but it's an issue of people abusing the apps and getting surprised when people see them irl and how different they look. I slim my face down too, but if i'm liquifying my face to the point my own earrings are getting warped like hers are then maybe it's tad bit too much. some people don't care about editing no matter what degree it is, but others do care. And when you have almost 11K followers on IG you have to be ready and expect different opinions
totally agree. i feel like she has some kind of identity crisis with her edits because sometimes she edits to look more korean but other times she goes more extreme with the nose shoop to look almost eurasian (like the pic i attached where she has a super thin, prominent nose) if that makes any sense. if she was more consistent and stuck to one style (and was more open about it instead of lying) i personally wouldn't have a problem with her editing, it looks nice overall in my opinion. I just really don't know why she tries so hard to deny it because denying shoops is just scummy tbh. I get insecurity over having a round, wider face and it's something i relate to - but asian people in general like myself just have wider temples and there are many models like liu wen and xiao wen ju who are proud of having a face shape similar to hers and still look gorgeous and unique. it's an ethnic feature that she tries so unbelievably hard to erase and idk that just rubs me the wrong way. i always thought she looked so pretty and more feminine and softer in her candids + unedited photos than the ones she puts up on ig.
There's probably a slight filter on that video. Because this video on her ig that's for a professional shoot shows that her face is still very different, even from far away.You can look at the difference with the photo she posts. Either way she's one of the few living dolls I still like a lot because of her great makeup skills and her outfits with high quality content!
it's disappointing to see her claim that she just prefers korean inspired makeup because there are so many makeup artists who aren't even asian that do so many k-beauty inspired looks and STILL look their own race without going as far to literally transforms themselves into another race via editing to rid of their own features entirely. Ironically, in her Q&A highlights she makes points about the oppression of black and asian people with the stigmas they have to go through and even acknowledges the prejudice they face because of their own race and the stereotypes that exist in history, yet still continues this fetish driven koreaboo behaviour. Honestly she's no different from extreme ABG's who try so hard to fit in with "white culture" by extreme lengths to look more western or even white passing to the point they erase their own ethnic features to opt for Eurocentric ones (for example Lily Maymac). She doesn't even realize that she herself has become a caricature of the Korean gangnam unnie stereotype.
she seems to be very open about her cosmetic surgeries/procedures which is nice; but her nose is extremely sus because she never mentioned getting work done it despite it looking so different. She's always had a relatively smaller nose even in her old pics and vids, but even with contouring you cannot lift the tip your nose like that, not even makeup artists can do that. It's almost been pinched in and upwards. Look at the difference.
I'm honestly cool with her editing and i think it suits her feed but why does she have to lie about it? how hard is it to say that she edits here and there for instagram to look a certain way that she prefers? honestly no one would care if she just openly admitted to it because the editing enhances her photos. instead, she looks ridiculous and scummy trying to "prove" she's 100% with videos when they all look so different from what she looks like. it always these instagram girls with the more "natural" aesthetic feeds because they're always the ones that seem to lie the most about editing "and get away with it because of their "natural dewy lewks"
i have some mutuals with her that only followed her within the recent months and they all thought she was some asian abg living in canada because of her excessive use of hangul hashtags. in terms of editing: I'm just not surprised she's gone to the extreme side of dorito chin shooping on top of the badly facetuned highlight around her browbone and nose, it was going to happen sooner or later. also can't help but take note of the inconsistent sizes in her nose that goes from super tiny to normal in pics taken by her vs by others. she's lost quite a lot of weight but her nose has shrunken down significantly in size recently and it looks like an entirely different shape now even from her shooped pics from 2 years ago. i was reading some health articles from nutritionist and even people on quora who have gone through dramatic weight loss but they all say that while losing weight can make your nose more prominent , it doesn't change the structure because the nose is comprised mainly of cartilage not just fat and flesh. Here's some photos that show a more prominent nose after weightloss but it's still the same shape and size:
but here's what i mean by how drastically her nose has changed, it's almost non-existent in her selfies and her weightloss isn't nearly as dramatic as the guy above who still has his same nose
BUT she still wanna say she doesn't edit drastically "sometimes i fix eyebags or acne, in the last year I have stopped caring about my cheek and jaw shape editing but I haven't edited my face to an extreme since I was 18/19 although a lot of people like to pretend I still do! Thats okay tho my bf thinks im pretty"
you can go to her procedures highlights and you'll see that she's been getting some work done and it seems like she's going for the korean gangnam unnie look with more korean orientated procedures. so far she's gotten belkyra for fat removal around the chin area and lip fillers! she never stated she got a nose job or any sort so i can't help but think it's her extreme editing that just got more drastic over time contrary to her "no drastic editing" claim.
gangnam unnie or not I'm glad she's getting surgery that makes her more confident in her face but I can't help but feel like she STILL wanna keep up the lies about editing herself into a koreaboo mess. On top of that it's been proven in this thread both her parents are white but i get the feeling she still wants to come off as a mixed Korean girl with this photo posted in her "A bit of me" highlights (that has selfies and baby/toddler photos as well as family members). I feel like she tries to imply this elderly asian man is also a relative or even grandparent (feel free to correct me if I'm reaching!)
I used to love her look because i have a similar face shape to hers and it made me super happy seeing a more rounder faced beauty getting lots of traction, but she's been looking hella different lately (@ that nose and sharper jaw - i tried contouring and liquifying in facetune on top of a selfie of mine and the effect is pretty much the same, so i believe she just edits + does her makeup differently now). also anyone notice that her ig and twitter accounts are all about asian representation yet she's always giving shoutouts almost exclusively to asian girls who fit a certain "look" (like cowsel or kneewah, "aesthetically pleasing" type asian girls with a sharp face and eyes, and pouty lips)?
on a side note i see a rise of so many e-girls commenting on belle's photos so their comments get featured or get lots of likes (especially if they're a verified account) because they're aware of belle's very active fanbase of preteen boys and old men and hope to grab attention from her audience. that user myahalanna (who probably deserves her own thread tbh) has been commenting under almost every single one of belle's pics after belle blew up on instagram and has been called out for trying to ride the coat tails of belle's whatever "clout"
stumbled upon this girl on explore and even though I'm aware it's plastic surgery, I'm still in awe and almost sad at the process of just how much pain they go through to achieve a look that maybe won't be popular in a few years. i mean just look at her lips after surgery, i'm assuming its before her lip fillers.
@s.xub on instagram has really been popping up on my explore recently, and each time i see her she's looking drastically different; especially her nose seems to be getting pointier with an everchanging face shape. I first thought it could be surgery but I have a video screenshot of her from April 15, 2018. Im pretty much convinced this is her actual face until now. April 15, 2018: Video Screenshot (now deleted)
compare that with her more recent pictures from August 2018 until now.
Here's how she looked in 2017 with a more rounded and wider nose like her video (picture deleted, taken from a hair stylist @dao_lim)
And then again, this is her around 5 days ago.
I really don't think its purely surgery because that video was among all her photos with a pointy nose and sky high cheek bones, but rather just some really good shoop job.
