Khloé Kardashian’s Most Unbelievable Faces

If you’re familiar with our Photoshop Fail series, or really just if you ever go on Instagram, you’re probably familiar with the time-honored Kardashian tradition of Facetuning the sh*t out of all their pictures. From slimming their waists to stretching their legs, the Kardashian-Jenners have used every editing trick in the book to convince us that they look like completely different people. And out of this whole over-smoothed family, Khloé Kardashian is the Facetune warrior at the forefront of face-changing technology.

The problem is, Khloé clearly doesn’t know where to stop when it comes to editing her photos. Over the last six months of quarantine and social distancing, we’ve all found new ways to keep our minds occupied, and lucky for us, Khloé has provided our brains with a fun logic puzzle: struggling to recognize her in every single photo she posts. This year, she’s taken the photo editing to a whole new level, so much so that when this photo popped up on my explore page last week, I actually did a double take before realizing who it was.

Yes friends, that is Khloé Kardashian, from the shoot for her new collaboration with Ipsy. I don’t know what kind of editing software they used here, but it looks like she went through some bizarre algorithm that’s supposed to make you look like Beyoncé and Ariana Grande at the same time. Who is this woman, and how did we get here?? Let’s take a walk down memory lane—or at least back to May of this year.

When Khloé posted this set of photos, the internet reaction was intense, with many people proclaiming that Khloé had gotten a “new face” in quarantine, and others pointing out anomalies like the mysteriously missing necklace chain, her eyes being too large (and uneven), her massive, extremely white teeth, and her signature beauty mark not being visible.

I always suspected that there was more editing going on here than plastic surgery, and the other shoe dropped in August, when Khloé was shown in a KUWTK confessional interview from the same day. Same outfit, same hair and makeup, but her face looks almost completely different. So, for all the guesses about her quarantine procedures, it turns out Khloé just edited the f*ck out of her photos, as usual. Did she not realize we were all going to see a video that would expose the editing?

But while her photo from May was one of the more viral instances of Khloé’s photo editing addiction, it’s far from the only face she’s introduced us to on the ‘Gram. Last September, she posted this photo that honestly makes me physically uncomfortable to look at. Not only is her skin way too smooth, but her eyes are a telltale sign of too much Facetune. No one’s eyes look like that. The whites are way too white, and the irises look like they’re glowing from the inside. Idk why people insist on doing this, because it looks unnatural AF.

In February of this year, Khloé switched things up again with this overly edited shot featuring her in a denim bodysuit and bob haircut. Her makeup looks flawless, which is probably mostly real, but KoKo’s face is just not that symmetrical, and her jaw is not that sharp. We all have eyes!

This example from August is an interesting one, because it’s a pic of Khloé with True. Thankfully, Khloé didn’t Facetune her toddler, but she was up to all her usual tricks when it came to her own appearance. It’s a grainy selfie, but she definitely still smoothed her face and enlarged her eyes. But more importantly than the technical breakdown, she just doesn’t look like herself. That’s the problem with Khloé’s Facetune usage—it’s one thing if you edit all your pictures to look like the same version of yourself. But something is wrong when I have to double check every single time that it’s actually Khloé.

And just last weekend, Khloé kept us guessing once more, with these photos featuring her in latex pants and a printed corset. She looks amazing, except for the fact that her face has been remixed yet again. She looks extra tan like in her Ipsy photo shoot, but gone are the high cheekbones and eye shape that made her look like a completely different person. In this post, she actually included videos from the shoot, which would normally be a Facetune giveaway, but there’s clearly a heavy filter over the video, so Khloé may actually be getting smarter about her tactics.

The wild thing about all this is that at the end of the day, I don’t even think Khloé Kardashian has had much plastic surgery done. I’m sure she’s played around with fillers, and maybe some light procedures here and there, but for all the fuss about her getting a “new face” every couple of months, it really all comes down to editing. The issue is, we all see Khloé on TV and in photos that haven’t gone through her editing process, so she’s not actually fooling anyone! But still, I’m excited to see what new and interesting editing tactics she can come up with next.

Breaking Down Khloé’s Photoshop Fails In *That* Photo

Wow, guys. It’s been quite a week in the world of Photoshop and Facetune fails. I’m sure you’ve seen today’s post because it is EVERYWHERE. That is how bad it is. Because here is what I—and I feel like, everyone?—do not understand. The idea of editing your photos is to get rid of flaws and make you look better, right? When I edit photos, it’s because there are unnecessary flyaway hairs, backne, or dirty dishes on my counter in the background that no one needs to see. There are totally reasons to make edits to photos. Most of our tiny dark apartments are just not equipped for professional photoshoots, so we understandably need to edit the lighting and add a cute filter to hide the horror-movie style bags under out eyes that our one sad lamp give us. This kind of stuff makes sense to me. But what really makes zero sense to me is removing your entire face and replacing it with a new face.

Do you remember that super strange Nicolas Cage movie where he gets a face transplant? Honestly? I don’t really either, besides the extremely vague premise. Turns out, Khloé Kardashian is a HUGE fan. In fact, she took that movie for her inspiration for her new look!

Khloé posted this a few days ago to show off her new hair:

Which, love it. It’s a great color for her! Except people had a problem with it. Not the hair, mind you, just a little teeny issue that this photo is not of Khloé’s face. In fact, it actually kind of looks more like her bestie Malika?

I mean did Khloé really, really, Facetune herself so hard that she just gave herself a whole new face? Well, there’s an easy way to check. Because unfortunately for Khloé, there are real pictures that exist of her. Not to mention, we get to see her real face on TV, and that isn’t it.

And in case you’re basically blind and somehow do not see the difference, don’t worry. Here is a nice little comparison of Khloé’s human face vs. that of the woman she has created in her laboratory:

Where to begin? The biggest offense is of course, this is just NOT YOUR FACE! But if we really want to get into it, this photo is also riddled with errors. I kinda just wanted to circle the entire thing and write “NO” across it.

So clearly, Khloé gave herself an entirely new head/chin. That just is not her jawline. This resulted in some SUPER WEIRD dimpling/lines on the left side of her face. In her quest to give herself new eyes and smoothed-out cheeks, she accidentally made one eye bigger than the other and somehow managed to shove it higher up than its counterpart. As you can see, her face is completely straight-on and level (and actually?? It’s unnaturally symmetrical), except for the one eye floating away. You can’t just move your eyeball placement, you would have to tilt your head to have your eyes at this angle. There’s a similar issue with her shoulders. She shrunk her right arm sooo much that it doesn’t seem to match up to be attached to her body at this angle anymore. And the rest of the arm is squiggly.

Further more, in smoothing out her neck, she removed half of the necklace chain she was wearing. This whole edit reeks of creepy cyborg vibes AND is crooked everywhere. Also? In addition to this not being her head or face, this is definitely not her skin tone.

You guys, I cannot stress this enough. Facetune should not be used like you’re Mr. Potato Head selecting all these different pieces for your face. It’s sad and creepy and makes you look really insecure. Remember, we all know what you actually look like. You don’t need to be a scary cyborg Barbie doll! Khloé, you will always be my favorite, but it would REALLY AWESOME for women everywhere (and probably your own self-esteem) if you’d lay off the editing. Seriously, you don’t need it.

Khloé on Facetune:

Were you horrified when you saw Khloé’s picture? Do you think her Facetune usage is getting worse? What do you use Facetune for? How do you feel about people giving themselves unrecognizable digital makeovers and trying to pass it off as real life? Do you think Malika is kind of scared? Let me know!
