Halsey Calls Instagram Filters “Damaging” & “Exhausting”

Halsey has launched her new, debut beauty line, About-Face. It’s a brand she says is to help people love themselves. Now, speaking with BYRDIE about the line, Halsey has criticised Instagram filters.

“I’m exhausted with this industry of Instagram filters,” she told the publication.

“It’s gotta be damaging to your brain to constantly be looking at yourself through an altered lens and being disappointed with what your face actually looks like.”

She went on to compare it to the lack of control celebs have with paparazzi shots.

“I know what that feels like because when I first started getting publicity of some kind, I would go out and [paparazzi would] take pictures of me.

“I can’t control the angle. I can’t control the lighting. I can’t control if it’s my good side or my bad side.”

She says the pictures would just come out and she’d have to accept them.

“I don’t get to change it. I have to make peace with my face… That’s what I want About-Face to be: loving and appreciating what you look like.”
