2. Hill told BuzzFeed that she wanted to lampoon the unrealistic standards beauty ads have been following over the years:
The inspiration was from noticing beauty ads over the years looking unrealistically perfect, and thinking that they may as well be advertising Photoshop than what they sell. I just decided to make a fun, exaggerated parody of the ads and turn them around to make Photoshop the beauty product, instead.
5. Though there have been a few people who thought that maybe the project had more to do with her own insecurities:
Most people have been awesome and supportive. I have seen plenty of negative comments, saying that I’m trying to make myself feel better by saying all models are ugly, which obviously was not the point. Most people have seen pictures of celebrities without makeup, with cellulite, and so on.
