MONTREAL – When it comes to the internet almost nothing is ever as it seems, and one woman on TikTok decided to let it all hang out with a daring before-and-after video that shows such a radical difference between her glamorous, “night on the town” look and how she truly appears when lounging on the couch completely without make-up with some calling her a “shape shifter.”
TikToker Julia Grandoni’s video – which has nearly 12 million views – first shows a still photograph of her done up to the nines in a form-fitting black evening dress and jacket with impeccably-done hair and make-up; a caption reads “Wow you’re so pretty!!”
However, the video then quickly cuts to Grandoni on the couch in a sweatshirt, sans make-up and hair styling products and filming herself from an unflattering angle that emphasizes her jowl, smiling and lip-synching along to a song with lyrics that say “Girl, that’s not me.”
Grandoni is known on TikTok for making jokes about how shockingly different she looks when she’s dressed-up versus how she looks casually, and those posting in the comments section of her latest video were blown away by the dramatic transformation.
