Beautify a Face


  1. It saddens me somewhat over here at least what they do to women who are plastered on magazine covers. I'm not against removing those little blemishes that crop up though. Recently Glamour did a cover of America Ferrara, a horribly photoshopped cover I might add.
    She is beautiful in her own right, they did not need to make her thinner and so plastic looking.


    I'm not sure if this link will come through, and I do not know how to add html to blogger it always refuses it.

  3. To do this: wonderlandornot

    You need to have this:

    {{{ wonderlandornot

  4. Well, there is a known inherited problem about explaining html syntax using html... I tried putting up the "dead" example wrapped with few known comment tags but non seem to be working so you just keep on getting the "live" example... anyways Blogger except standard html tags.

    If you do "view source" in your browser on the post page and look for the string of your url you will find the exact expression I used to make it. Let me know if it works. if not i will explain by email.
