“For 2 weeks I analyzed the top 100 most followed female Instagrammers and came up up with 22 attributes for each woman to be judged on,” she wrote presenting her study. “After a couple of weeks of gathering data and categorizing data, I can tell you that there is most definitely a formula and a very specific beauty standard that the Top 100 most followed women on Instagram adhere to. It’s fascinating, but also incredibly eerie in a time when you would think social media has evend the playing field for women of all body types, sizes, ethnicities, and skin color.”

The attributes that Cassey looked into were lip size, nose size, hair color, hair length, neck length, face shape, chest size, etc. “I wanted to see how the beauty standards of today’s era have changed, if at all.”

“I find it interesting that being blonde and blue-eyed is no longer the desired beauty ideal, according to Instagram,” she said. “But I also find it interesting that in the era of the most body-positive positive revolution, only 5 of the top 100 most followed female Instagrammers were plus-size. And in the top 10, zero.”

After crunching the numbers, Cassey decided to take it a step further. She teamed up with a few experts and became the ideal influencer, one whose looks were in accordance with her research findings. Of course, shopping for clothes and applying makeup wouldn’t cut it, so she turned to the magic wand internet fakes just can’t live without – Photoshop.
