From a wild art installation titled “Too Good to be True” by German artist Meike Harde. Meike designed these masks in order to raise questions about contemporary beauty standards. The work asks: How much is too much plastic surgery?

When put on, however, they cause a contortion of the face. This is meant to show that artificially produced beauty is not always beautiful; instead it can evoke the very opposite. Furthermore the pressure to be beautiful is to be questioned and denounced.

I noticed there were no plastic surgery-style masks for men. Apparently, Meike has never seen Bruce Jenner or Kenny Roger’s mugs. Men can take it too far too, ya know!
