In effect, Instagram filters are like an instant, technological glow up. They blur out imperfections, tinge everything with a saturated, rose tinted glow and make us look like the better, more put together versions of ourselves; with brighter, smoother skin, sculpted cheekbones, full, glossy lips and sultry cat eyes. It’s the kind of hyper-real glow up that is so good, we are constantly on the search for products that take those digital effects into the physical world.
Luckily for us, e.l.f. Cosmetics are on the same wavelength.
