We all know that every single picture in every single magazine is highly photoshopped, but I don't think we really understand how unrealistic these pictures really are.

If you've ever looked at a magazine and thought, "Man, I wish I looked like that," just give a professional photo editor a few hours and you could. Recently some videos were released showing just how long it takes to retouch just one photo, and it blew my mind. The videos are sped up so we don't have to actually sit through hours of editing.

Though the point of the videos is to show the time and talent it takes to retouch photos, I think it also gives us a really good idea of how unattainable that level of perfection is. All these models that we think are perfect are just an illusion.

Check out some of these videos and prepare to be impressed!
