Photo Retouching is a Green Industry 修圖是個利國利民的綠色產業

Before & After 修圖前與修圖後

 

When I was in university, a very close male friend once said, “God has created a face for her; but she creates another one for herself.” He was referring to those girls who wore too much makeup.

上大學時,一位男性密友曾說:「上帝給了她一張臉,她又自己另造一張。」口氣中滿是對化妝過重的女生們的不滿。我就暗自心驚地想:「搞半天女生化妝都是白忙?」

From him I learned that although girls wanted to look better, to be more attractive by doing makeup, the result could be just the opposite.

我本來就是個不愛化妝的懶女生,聽他這麼一說,更給自己找到「理論根據」,不必化妝了。

From then on I never liked to do much (or any) makeup. I have been a lazy person in the first place; plus, I have also been a nature lover, who loves things in their natural status.

另外,我也是個愛好自然之人,我潛意識中一直認爲,上帝把你造成什麼樣,你就得尊重上帝的意志,不要自己去另外弄出些什麼幺蛾子來。所以什麼美容手術、面部提拉之類的,我向來是不會考慮的;變性之類,在我看來更是「走火入魔」。

Because of this, I had been very reluctant to even use those very popular “photo retouching” apps. I always doubted whether that would be accounted as cheating…

因爲同樣的原因,我連現在無比流行的「修圖」也一直持比較牴觸的態度。我總覺得,這會不會有點騙人的嫌疑啊?

However, the other day I suddenly remembered that when I was hosting a TV show, I needed to spend at least 40 minutes to do my makeup, to cover-up my skin flaws, to even out the skin tone, etc., to make me look good in front of the camera. I needed to spend a lot of money to buy cosmetics too. 

前兩天,我不知怎麼突然想起來,以前主持電視節目時,上鏡前至少得花四十分鐘來化妝,把皮膚上的瑕疵遮住,然後再想辦法「揚長避短」,讓自己看起來能「熠熠生輝」,等等。

If a photo retouching app can do the same job in just 40 seconds, without consuming any cosmetics or extra amount of energy (to light your mirror up), it can really be counted as a green industry, right?

如果修圖軟件能在四十秒之內就完成「人工」化妝要四十多分鐘才能完成的事,還不需要花錢買化妝品,也省了若干化妝時需用的照明能源,那它豈不是一件利國利民綠色環保的大好事?

Hence, I gave up my resentment and resistance to photo retouching…

所以,所以,我現在不那麼牴觸修圖了……
