In the world of unrealistic standards and Photoshop mania, real beauty is a breath of fresh air. And while makeup and clothes can often become a form of art and self-expression, sometimes it’s really relaxing to see people looking like their natural selves.
Olga Kamenetskaya is a Ukrainian artist that modifies dolls to make them look realistic. She started repainting dolls as a hobby but eventually turned it into a profession. Olga removes all of the makeup from the doll’s face and adds new, realistic features. It’s safe to say that the result is often better than the original, with dolls looking far more realistic than they used to. Here are 22 of her stunning work.
Olga takes mass-produced dolls, such as Monster High girls or Barbies, and turns them into entirely new, unique and one-of-a-kind dolls. They each have little “flaws,” like real people have, which she includes by not only repainting but also modifying dolls’ shapes and working with wigs, and the result is almost too real.
She took beauty courses to improve her skills and now she’s also a pro makeup artist. But Olga prefers to keep things natural.
Olga said in an interview:
“I don’t like when the new face of the doll is ideal and perfectly symmetrical, it makes it lifeless. I always deliberately leave some flaw that may not be noticeable to everyone, but [gives] the doll invisible charisma. Perhaps, this flawed beauty is the message that my dolls carry.”
She credits her husband for helping her to become a master doll-maker.
“I didn’t believe in myself the way he [believed in me]. I’m never 100 percent satisfied with my work; I always think that it’s possible to do better with each new doll.”
What makes Olga’s dolls even more beautiful is the fact that they are not perfect, just like all of us.

Woman Shares Online Shopping Fail And The Internet Can’t Stop Laughing
“According to the sizing chart, I would fit this dress well. I didn’t.”
The challenging thing about online shopping is that buyers do not have the luxury of inspecting products upclose until they've made the purchase. One woman from Napier, New Zealand learned this the hard way despite her best efforts to ensure that she gets the best out of the deal.
Shopper Michaela Smith saw a nice dress being sold online and so she wanted to buy it. The blue and white dress had a retro vibe and had pink flamingos for its design.
To make sure that she gets the right size, she measured herself twice before placing the order. She was sure she's a 4XL. Much to her dismay, what eventually arrived was not only smaller, a 3XL, but the dress also obviously looked a bit different from what she expected....
