Celebrities who look hotter on Instagram than real life – A picture is worth a thousand words, or in this case, a thousand lies. As humans, most of us are visual creatures, and easily fooled with our eyes as a result. We rely on sight 90% more than any of our other senses, and as such are convinced we have to, “see to believe.”

With the social media boom of this current decade, millions of people, namely celebs, over expose themselves in an attempt to, “keep up with the Joneses.” Today more than ever it’s easier to fool people into believing what you want them to, thanks to social media. Especially when it comes to your appearance.
With a whopping 27 million Instagram followers, 17 year old Kylie Jenner is a celeb who’s managed to use the art of photoshop to her advantage; appearing near perfect in her Instagram photos, but barely recognizable in interviews and paparazzi candids. All of the famous selfie-holics on the list know that there’s an art form to taking the perfect selfie. You have to find the perfect lighting, make sure you’re holding the cam to catch your most flattering angles, and most importantly, familiarize yourself with a great photoshopping app.
You’d think that social media would actually help to dispel some long standing myths; in a way placing everyone from celebrities to random citizens on the same platform. But nah, people are more easily fooled than ever before thanks to it. Here are 10 celebs fooling us all into believing they’re more attractive than they really are.
10. Nicki Minaj
Over the years we’ve watched the Stupid Ho singer Nicki Minaj follow the footsteps of the original Queen of Hip Hop, Lil’ Kim. Like Lil’ Kim, she started off with the ostentatious and eccentric image only to undergo extensive plastic surgery to appear more “natural”. Thanks to photoshopping techniques, Nicki Minaj will sometimes alter her figure to appear much slimmer than it is in real life, as seen in the image on the right, which she posted on her Instagram back in May. In comparison to the image on the left, where Nicki can be seen with barely any make up looking as close to her natural self as is possible (despite the numerous cosmetic enhancements, of course). Easily the most duplicitous celeb on the list, the rapper can’t choose which angle the paparazzi captures her in real life and as a result, you get her unfiltered and unedited.
