Halsey sent a strong message about the importance of being proud of yourself without changing one’s appearance with Instagram filters.
The singer is promoting her own line of tricks called About-Face and explained that through it she wants fans to feel comfortable showing off the look they prefer and not what society expects.
“I am exhausted from this industry made of Instagram filters – she said in an interview on Byrdie – It must be harmful to your brain to constantly look at yourself through filters that alter and then find yourself disappointed with how your face really is”.
Halsey explained that she felt like she couldn’t control what she looks like when she was paparazzi: ” I know what it means because since I started being known, I go out and the paparazzi take pictures of me. I can’t control the angle, I can’t control the light. I can’t check if it’s my good side or not. Those pictures come out and I can just look at them and say, ‘Okay, I’m like that.’ I can’t change it. I must make peace with my face.”

Finally, the 26-year-old encouraged fans to dress, comb and put on makeup as they please, even if that means going against the current. The important thing is to feel comfortable with the look you have chosen.
She, for example, feels at her best when she wears a shaved head: “I know what my most beautiful look is by the standards of society, but that doesn’t mean that’s how I want to look. I don’t think my most ‘Hollywood’ look is when I have my head shaved, but that’s how I feel more confident.”
