The Before and After Files #5

    No one’s skin is perfect. Even with all the best skincare products and professional makeup artists. And you know what? Every single cosmetic company knows this. Yet these brands want you to believe that their products (and only their products) are going to make you glow and give you incredibly smooth and perfect skin tone!

    You’d be shocked if you saw the “before” pictures of the models for any of the most famous brands. Professional models like me have the advantage of experts who modify their photos and touch them up so that the “after” picture has almost zero flaws. I’m here to tell you that a magazine model’s perfect skin comes from a computer mouse, not from a fancy bottle.

    But you still can have a healthy glow! That’s going to come from the food you eat, living a healthy life, feeling and acting confident, and being your own beautiful self.

    Nicole Weider is a Salem, Oregon native who moved to Los Angeles and quickly found success as a fashion model at the age of 17. Today, Nicole is an active wife, mom, producer, actress and author and has made it her mission to share her personal story, the bright moments and the challenges, with young women around the world.


    1. loving the first picture, you know, the one where you look more like a person. 🙂 i think its so important that you share the before and after photos, please keep doing it! at first when i found this website i thought “of course she has a healthy self asteem, the woman looks like a goddess!shes flawless, she has everything going for her!” but then i saw the before and after pictures and you like more human. like someone who has opinions, which is what you are, and what we all are. we are voices and opinions! keep it up! much love.

    2. This website is so inspiring!!I’ve learned a lot from it and it’s nice to know there are some level-headed models out there.
      The before pic looks great!! u actually look human in that one, where the other one looks so fake!! you’re much more beautiful in the first one!!

    3. Wow. Both of these are gorgeous, but I especially love the first one. You’re so brave to do this, Nicole! Thank you so much 🙂 Seeing you as you are, and not “digitally enhanced” I think makes you even more beautiful, because you aren’t a Barbie doll–no one is!

    4. This is so immodest. I thought that “modest is hottest.” Its easy to talk about it, but girls look up to you, so you should be living it too. This picture makes me uncomfortable to look at.

    5. Guys, don’t give Nicole such a hard time! She is showing Photoshopped pictures to prove that the “perfect” image models have in photographs from the media is not real. These pictures give girls a bad body image, but that’s because they think the picture wasn’t touched up., so she is showing that it in fact was redone.

      The reason she showed these was actually explained quite clearly below the pictures 😛

      I think the reason these seem immodest was because they were from when she was modeling. if not, everyone makes some mishaps 🙂

      Nicole wants to let you guys know that you are beautiful no matter what, and that she has a very beautiful heart, with a physical appearance to match 😀 She also said that you can enhance you natural beauty by living a healthy lifestyle

    6. Wow! You look so different! All the photoshopping in commercials and pictures always ends up making women of all ages feel insecure about what they look. They want to change their body to make them look like someone their not, when the model doesn’t even look like that! If only more before photos were available to be seen. When teen girls zoom in, they see the model has blemishes like everyone else. He nobody looks perfect! Btw, the before picture is gorgeous! It shows girls are beautifuls just the way they are. True beauty is on the inside.
