15 Incredible Transformations From 2012 To 2018 That Will Have You Do A Double Take

Growing up feeling unattractive, overweight or in the wrong body is a major FML. These people did something about that.

A lot can change in just a few years. If you've gone through a major glow up or complete body transformation, you're likely to want to hide your old photos and pretend those terrible times simply did not happen. Unfortnately, our old selves are immortalized in photos.

Uhhh the outward appearance changing over time isn't a surprising thing. These people have obviously had major personal transformations and challenges as they have grown. I wish their stories were included with the pictures- it would be more interesting than the "before and after" shtick.

2 and 8...just WAY too much makeup. Anyone could "transform" into just about anyone or anything with that much crap plastered onto their pace. As for every other picture, incredible transformations!

I mean, a lot of these they look drastically different because of liberal application of make-up. It'd be more moving to have stories behind these when make up when applied skillfully can make ANYONE look amazing. 30lbs of makeup =/= a transformation.
