Justin Bieber covers the latest issue of Brazillian teen mag Todateen, and either he's decided to start wearing makeup or he's the latest victim of unauthorized photoshopping. One look at the photo and it's obvious his face has been seriously altered.Justin does have strangely perfect skin for a teenager, but not that perfect. He also appears to be wearing lipstick or lipbalm in the photo. And to top it off, it looks like he has eyeshadow and mascara around his eyes. If it wasn't for his signature hair, he would hardly be recognizable.
It didn't take long after the magazine went to stores before fans start asking questions on Twitter and Facebook. But the magazine claims it didn't make any alterations to the photo at all.
Here's what they had to say about the controversy: "We could not help noticing your comments and tweets from the picture of Justin on the cover of Star Todateen. We would like to say that there was no change made in the area of the singer's eyes. We had a technical problem that darkens certain areas of the photo. We also want to say that all of us find Justin very naturally beautiful. We'd never think it's necessary to alter pictures of him. Natural beauty says it all, right?" (via Huffington Post)
That photo has obviously had some major touchups. Maybe they didn't mean to make it appear like he wears makeup, but it barely looks like a photograph at all.Oh yeah, and Justin has a small mole to the right of his mouth.
