Here's a striking video from Hungarian singer Boggie, in which her moving image is being retouched and "corrected" throughout the entire video. Directed by Nándor Lőrincz and Bálint Nagy, the three-minute video shows Boggie's transformating from a lovely woman in dim lighting to a lovely, flawlessly made-up woman who has, judging by her glowing surroundings, been abducted by aliens and forced to sing for them.

It looks like a fair bit of the magic is down to makeup and improved lighting, and given the detail-intensive work involved in retouching much of it must be simulated, but it still makes a statement about what's expected from female entertainers.
