Do you ever get tired of looking at all the 'perfect' pictures on Instagram that all look the same? Instagram pictures do look too good to be true most of the time, and they are. For all those who become sad looking at the amazingly 'perfect' pictures on Instagram must understand that a lot goes into getting those kinds of aesthetically pleasing images. Those heavily contoured pictures giving an illusion of flawless, defined faces is what Instagram is filled with. However, like a breeze of fresh air, a new trend 'Instagram versus Real Life' is all over Instagram that shows both sides of the coin. According to this trend people display their Instagram face (Read: Perfect contours and eye makeup with proper filters) however on the other side they show the real-face sans any makeup. For showing the Instagram face, you draw a frame of a box mimicking the framework of an Instagram post in the most creative ways possible.

Also called the Instaception, this new Instagram trend is a treat to the eyes as well. This trend uses a painted version of makeup to create an impression of having a picture as an Instagram post on the face drawn, which means, an Instagram photo of you having an Instagram post drawn using makeup on the face- hence the name- Instagram inception.

Take a look at a few 'Instagram versus Real Life' pictures on Instagram:
