Jenni Farley, also known as JWoww, is the latest celebrity to get real about makeup and beauty filters online.
The “Jersey Shore” star posted a side-by-side selfie on Instagram on Sunday. Farley said the left portion was unedited, showing her with minimal makeup. The right side of the photo was altered using a photo-editing app, giving Farley a full-glam look.
“Laying here bored and saw this app… so I said ‘why not?'” she wrote in the caption. “WTF. I’d rather be old and ugly but seriously, don’t do this crap to your pics… love yourself.”

Though some people applauded Farley’s critique of photo-editing apps, others said it was hypocritical, considering she has spoken about embracing cosmetic procedures including Botox and posted other pictures that seem to have an airbrushed effect.
Farley said in a comment that she uses “bright lights” and doesn’t edit her pictures because she is “too lazy.”
When another Instagram user said the edited photo added only makeup to Farley’s appearance, Farley said it had actually made her face “all baby smooth with a ring-light glow.”
Farley also acknowledged that there’s more to her appearance than makeup and bright lights.
“True love, but you have endless money for the medspa and injections,” one user commented on the photo. “Many of your followers don’t.” The user added that it “makes a difference in the #nofilter pics.””You are not wrong there,” Farley responded.
In a recent interview with Insider, Dr. Azadeh Shirazi, a cosmetic dermatologist, argued that the glowing complexions celebrities show in their posts on social media posts are often the result of “a lot of glamour” but “not a lot of science.”
Shirazi said celebrities often benefit from “contouring, makeup and lighting tricks, and access to the best medical professionals.”
