Jia Tolentino, a writer, recently came up with an article describing the type of face that models and Instagram influencers are all seeking, terming it as the ‘Instagram Face.’ In her article, she described the look as a perfect editorial of a selfie, left blemish-free.As if to confirm the contents in Tolentino’s article, a cosmetic surgeon went ahead to reveal it is the kind of face that most cosmetic surgeon clients want. The writer who seemingly has the details of the desired look terms it as a young and pretty with ‘catlike’ eyes, elegant nose, lush lips, and long cartoonish lashes.
Colby Smith has also seen it all being a makeup artist. The Instagram Face appears as if made from clay, or a piece of an unrealistic sculpture. But Jason Diamond may have handled quite a number of the stars being a celebrity plastic surgeon.From Beverly Hills, the plastic surgeon has done the alterations to model Olivia Culpo and actress Lala Kent, among other celebrities as seen from the celebrities’ Instagram stories that he often shares. Speaking to the New Yorker, Diamond named a few of the stars who have been his clients.
According to Diamond, there exist differences in what the clients prefer, citing regional differences as the cause. However, they all have some common aspects. A strongly projected chin, contoured cheekbones, and a flat platform beneath the chin are some of the common elements he listed.The culture is currently widespread, and Diamond admitted to receiving more clients. Some approached the professional with photos of the celebrities they wish to look like, with Kim Kardashian’s face being the most requested. “30% of clients come with Kim Kardashian’s photo.”
Kardashian West is one of Diamond’s celebrity clients. Going by the reports seen from the US Magazine, Kardashian West looks different probably after switching dermatologists to see Jason Diamond.She was at one time named by Smith, the celebrity makeup artist, as ‘patient zero’ for the Instagram Face. The surgeon however, revealed that he at times takes the initiative to educate clients on whether Kardashian’s face is the right path to take, although he terms it as the most significant challenge he faces.
Although Kardashian West is the most envied star for the ‘Instagram Face’, she alleges to have not had a major plastic surgery yet. Going by what ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians star’ indicates, she has simply done makeup, Botox, and fillers. In 2016, she revealed how much she loves contouring, adding that it gives her a new nose. The revelation proved what fans had always thought wrong, about getting a nose job. The star continues with her inspirational campaigns for the plastic surgery procedures across the globe.
