This Is What Beyoncé Looks Like Without Photoshop

reposted from http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-17531/this-is-what-beyonce-looks-like-without-photoshop.html   And she shows us that #flawless doesn't have to mean, literally, flawless. 224 supposedly unretouched photos of Beyoncé were leaked on a website called The Beyoncé World this morning, obviously sending tsunami-size shockwaves through cyberspace. They apparently come from commercial and ad shoots for L'Oréal's 2013 Feria and Infallible campaigns. But within an hour of their appearance, they were taken down, because, as the website explained, "Some of the things [they] have seen posted were just horrible, and [they] don't want any parts of it." Complex managed to grab a few of them, though. While, admittedly, the harsh lighting is unflattering for a face caked with makeup, the photos certainly didn't warrant such a negative response from the public. We already hold celebrities to ridiculous beauty standards. Cindy Crawford took a stand against this notion by allowing the release of unretouched photos of her body earlier this week. But we put "The Queen" on an even higher pedestal. Despite her incredible talent, she is human. She has blemishes. She has wrinkles. And she's beautiful, not in spite of them, but because of them. In her 2014 single "***Flawless," Bey is encouraging women to be confident in their natural physical appearance — bedhead, acne, and all. And while in this case, she might not necessarily have "woke[n] up like this" with all that makeup on, her message still applies. Flawlessness is a mindset. So as long as she feels good, she can say "I look so good tonight / God damn, God damn, God damn!" even without photoshop. Here are a couple more of the photos in question: Keep in mind, however, that it is possible that these photos are fakes. But either way, they can serve to remind us that beauty is not synonymous with perfection. Do you follow BodyRock on Snapchat and Instagram?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.
