Later, the middle-aged man even shared the secrets behind his disguise.

Turns out, no wigs nor beauty products were needed — all he used was his phone and a face-changing app.

Explaining his decision to take on the female persona, the 50-year-old said he wanted to increase the engagement of his posts,

I want to share pictures of myself riding a motorcycle, but no one wants to see an uncle.

He added that the ‘beautifying’ process was quite enjoyable and said the number of likes on his Instagram posts has increased tremendously since he used the filter.

Hope users will look beyond superficial appeal

Not sure about you, but we’re definitely stunned by just how flawless the transformation was.

As funny as this story is, we can’t help but sense the underlying sadness over how content creators have to resort to such means in order to get clicks and engagements.

We hope more social media users would consume content based on their quality and value rather than the looks of the person who posted them.
