From sharp suits to shell suits, top knots to sleek bobs, everyone has their own ‘style’, whether other people always appreciate it or not. Most of us spend longer than we’d really like to admit deliberating over which shirt to buy or which haircut to ask for, trying to make sure our eyeliner flicks at exactly the right angle, and our limbs reach the right shade of tan. In short, we’re a world obsessed with the way that we’re perceived by others.

Having lived in South Korea – often regarded by many as the ‘beauty capital of the world’ – where I attended an all-female university, I’m only too aware of the rigorous processes that some women put themselves through in order to live up to what “conventional” beauty standards. It’s a place where a 10-step skincare process each night is nothing unusual, reapplying your makeup mid-math lesson is par for the course, and there are more beauty products than I even knew existed.

However, there is also a much darker side to this striving for beauty and that’s the idealization of western beauty standards.

Although South Korea leads the world when it comes to the number of people who undergo plastic surgery, the practice is surprisingly common across eastern Asia – with blepharoplasty, where the skin around the eye is restructured to give a more western appearance, being among one of the most requested. By 21, many of my friends had already undergone this procedure.

But that doesn’t mean that surgery is the only way that women are transforming their faces to give themselves a more ‘western’ look. Many also use “sculpturing”, where women alter their features with a little help from less invasive measures including false eyelashes, tape, and fake skin extensions, to achieve their desired look. Now, a video has been released showing women with and without their beauty cheats, as they wipe it all off to reveal their beauty beneath – and some of them are almost completely unrecognizable.

1. To be fair, I want her eyebrow drawing skills 

But seriously, those eyebrows seem to have come from nowhere and are totally on point.

 2. What a lovely smile this lady has

She seriously looks like someone who would be great for a gossip over coffee.

 3. Contacts, wig, eye shaping

There are so many beauty hacks going on all at once here.

 4. Big love for this girl’s top

To be fair, there’s not a huge amount of difference between these photos, but I fully love her sparkly cosmos top.

 5. It’s amazing how much her face changes shape

Surely peeling all of that tape off of your face cannot be comfortable?

6. Channeling Liza Minnelli 

This girl seems to go from Caucasian to East Asian in a matter of minutes

 7. Her real face is so cute

And it has so much more character without all the makeup.

8. She looks like a totally different person

Remember when you used to think makeup made you grown up? Well, a combination of clever shading and false hair pieces seem to have made this lady look whole lot younger.

9. She’s beautiful either way, tbh

Her eyes seem so much bigger with the makeup and tape on.

10. That’s some serious sculpting talent

Surely she’s just a Snapchat filter on that first one?

11. Is that a…?

One woman is even shown removing a false nose and contact lenses

These aren’t the only amazing transformations, however. In fact, there’s a whole video full of them:

See these women totally transform their appearance without any surgery:

In an ideal world, there would be no beauty standards, no self-doubt, no one feeling the need to look like anything other than their normal, totally true self. But unfortunately that’s not the case, so we’ll just have to agree that these women look great with and without the slap, while admitting that they’re quite the talented makeup artists.

  7. The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
