Halsey wants people to stop using Instagram filters.
The singer told Byrdie that altering photos leads people to feel “disappointed” in what they look like in real life.
She said, “I’m exhausted with this industry of Instagram filters,” the singer said. “It’s gotta be damaging to your brain to constantly be looking at yourself through an altered lens and being disappointed with what your face actually looks like.
“I know what that feels like because when I first started getting publicity of some kind, I would go out and paparazzi would take pictures of me. I can’t control the angle. I can’t control the lighting. I can’t control if it’s my good side or my bad side. The pictures would come out and I would just have to look at them and go, ‘Okay. That’s what I look like.’ I don’t get to change it.”
She added: “I have to make peace with my face …That’s what I want About-Face to be: loving and appreciating what you look like.”
About Face is the “Graveyard” singer’s makeup line, launched on January 25th.
