A popular Australian beauty vlogger has brought her 1.5 million followers behind the scenes of her photo editing tips and tricks.

Perth-based YouTuber Lauren Curtis posted two photos to Instagram - one which had been heavily edited and the other a more natural shot.

Instead of allowing her fans to guess at the changes she'd made Lauren went into great detail in a bid to be 'transparent.'

'I think there needs to be more transparency on social media, so here is a side by side comparison of before and after editing this pic,' the caption on the photo read.

So can you guess what she has changed? 

'Besides the obvious colour editing (which has warmed up the image therefore boosting the colour of my tan), I whitened the whites of my eyes which were yellowed after the colour edit, and then fixed the gross fake tan on my hand,' she explained.

But instead of suggesting this was a necessary measure in order to keep up with the 'Instagram elite', Lauren said she wouldn't be surprised if more people liked the original image

'I also lightly smoothed over my legs as I was freezing which makes my skin go a little blotchy.'

'I absolutely love the process (I studied photography straight out of high school and editing was always my favourite part) and so that's why I do it,' she said.

Her final word on the topic was that ' Instagram is really just smoke and mirrors', a sentiment echoed by many of the big players on social media

'Omg it looks so different! Her face! Obvs she's beautiful in both but this is actually really interesting,' one commenter wrote beneath the photos.

'Holy crap never would have realized how whitening the whites of your eyes makes such a difference! Now i need to do that,' another added.
