The # Ge­tre­alis­sue Gang

Look (UK) - - ONE MORE THING -

Here at Look we made it our per­sonal mis­sion to get real on so­cial me­dia, with last week’s is­sue be­ing en­tirely ded­i­cated to cham­pi­oning the cause. And, boy, did it go down a storm. Join­ing us on our #Ge­tre­alis­sue cru­sade were some of In­sta­gram’s most in­flu­en­tial faces and, most im­por­tantly, you. From out­fit snaps to self­ies, peo­ple from across the plat­form re­vealed

ex­actly how many snaps/fil­ters/apps it took to take ‘The One’, giv­ing us all a dose of re­al­ity in the process. What’s more, the cam­paign’s on­go­ing, and to get in­volved all you need to do is tag your selfie with #Ge­tre­alis­sue and tell us ex­actly how many at­tempts it took for you to get one you’d hap­pily up­load. So, in the name of sis­ter­hood, here’s some of our favourite posts from the cam­paign. So far, any­way…

@daisie­smith: ‘many at­tempts later, Face­tune sharp­ened and bright­ened, VSCO fil­ter on, colour ad­just­ments and here we go.’

@es­melo­bos27: ‘three at­tempts to re­alise it’s ok not to use a fil­ter, and one hour to de­cide whether to post it or not.’

@rosiefortes­cue: ‘EIGHT. I was not feel­ing it to­day and needed a lit­tle help from a bright­en­ing and con­trast­ing fil­ter.’

@in­_my_­size_and_in_the_sale: ‘this pic took a full face of make-up, 6 at­tempts, good light/an­gle and a Va­len­cia fil­ter… Phew!’

@gil­lyferg: ‘Fif­teen. For those who said my preg­nancy looks glam – morn­ing sick­ness meant I never left the house in this #ootd.’

@mol­liek­ing: ‘this selfie took 4 at­tempts and I’ve added a fil­ter too! Ha! Gotta love a fil­ter. let’s not take our “likes” too se­ri­ously!’

@style­maven­world: ‘25! try­ing in vain to get my eye­liner in shot means my cam­era roll has 24 fails!’

@sarah_bar­low: ‘three! I give up if I can’t nail it af­ter 3 at­tempts. I tried dif­fer­ent back­drops to find a flat­ter­ing light!’
