Insta-Influencer exposes the truth behind those perfect photos with her side-by-side pics
Everyone who knows anything knows that social media sites like Instagram – and the people on them – are often about as real as a silicon tit. Unfortunately, the world’s still full of people who know nothing. Unfortunately, those people are all too often impressionable youngsters looking for a sense of identity and an understanding of what the ‘right’ body should look like. Crikey, sometimes they’re just looking for what the ‘right person’ should look like, so it’s always good to see Instagram users who aren’t afraid to reveal the truth about that…
Before we go on, we’ve decided we might start going with InstaSheila instead of ‘influencer’. We know it might not be the right term, but it really makes us feel less like a pack of wankers when we say that and not ‘influencer’. Deadset.
Anyway, today’s InstaSheila is Dutch bird, Rianne Meijer. This chick has over three-hundred-and-fifty-thousand followers, so you can expect her to hit you up for free wedding photography any day now, photographers of the internet.
Despite that, she seems like a pretty down-to-earth InstaSheila. Instead of making out that she’s just bloody perfect all the bloody time, she’s recently revealed just how hard she has to work to make herself look good in photos. We reckon that anyone who’s ever had to suck their gut in, chuck a new breadclip on the pluggers and iron their singlet can relate.
Essentially, she’s uploaded a bunch of photos that she reckons make her look good side by side with a few that make her look like a right gumby. Here’s what she said about it:
“So while waiting here at the airport in Berlin I figured no better way to spend my time than to keep it real. This is not gonna be some long emotional story (not that there’s anything wrong with crying and talking to yourself in the shower obviously) but just a little small reminder that every pic you see on my account is one in a hundred (or sometimes four hundred) and it was all about the right angle, right lighting and of course the right filter. Nothing perfect about me and nothing perfect about my life (except for @royatiya, and my parents❤️). Just a girl with big dreams who’s going to regret posting this in 1,2,3…”
If your missus is one of those sheilas who makes you retake every photo forty times, we reckon you might already have a pretty good idea how this works, but it seems like pretty simple trial and error to us.
Of course, for the young lads, ladies and anyone in-between who’s still not mastered the art of making themselves look good on Instagram, this is welcome news. You’re not ugly, you just haven’t found the right pose to show your good side to the world yet.
Repeat it, like a mantra. In the right light, at the right angle, with the right filter, I’m a smoking hot mofo! In the right light, at the right angle, with the right filter, I’m a smoking hot mofo! In the right light, at the right angle, with the right filter, I’m a smoking hot mofo!
Final thought: Obviously, we’re nudging your nun-chucks here, but there’s actually a pretty good message behind this. Give bloody Rianne a round of applause and a click on the old like button. Those gems of truth deserve it. Some of these pics are proper meme-worthy. If you’ve got some talent there, get to it and post ‘em in the comments section!
