New Zealand pop star *Lorde * has posted pictures online that compare her natural face with a digitally edited picture.
The singer wanted to alert fans to the frequent use of airbrushing.
The Royals singer shared two shots on Twitter. Both were taken at the same gig in Chile, but one shows Lorde with a flawless complexion, while the other shows her with spotty skin.
The 17-year-old said fans should not feel bad about themselves when they see pictures of perfect pop stars, because reality is often different to the flawless images.
"I find this curious - two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real," she wrote. "Remember flaws are ok."
