An incredible new time-lapse video has condensed hours of work by a retouch artist into a short clip, revealing the true extent of airbrushing and its unbelievable effects.

The behind-the-scenes video was put together by Rare Digital Art, a high-end retouching boutique in New York that has edited images for everyone from Vogue to H&M.

The founder and head retoucher of the firm, Elizabeth Moss, said the point of releasing the clips was to show people exactly how deceptive the industry can be.

"These videos are unique because none of the high end retouchers make these type of videos," Moss told Peta Pixel.

"So the quality of the other before and after retouching videos available online are pretty terrible and not at all representative of what is typically done on high fashion editorials and campaigns."
