Love Island star Maura Higgins has hit back at trolls who say she over-edits her photos by sharing a series of Insta vs Reality snaps.
Taking to Instagram, Maura wrote:
Slide for this original image & then look at the last image where lighting, angles etc are all wrong. My DMs are just flooded with trolls atm claiming I over use the smooth tool & enhance my eyeballs! Should I really apologise for having good skin, really?
Maura Higgins’ secret to stunning eyes
Sharing three photos of herself posing in Ann Summers lingerie, she revealed that the secret behind her eyes popping in all her photos is using white eyeliner–as well as always making sure she has the right lighting. Although she denies over-filtering her photos, Maura also admitted to ‘upping the brightness’ on her photos.
Maura Higgins: ‘BE KIND’
Maura continued to urge her followers to think before they comment, saying:
The pressure’s of social media can really affect people so maybe think twice about jumping into somebody’s DMs with abuse about their image. You really don’t know what is going on in a person’s life so please just BE KIND, it costs nothing!
Molly-Mae Hague, Maura’s former rival turned bestie, was quick to jump in the comments section to support her friend, writing: ‘
I mean you look even better in real life so🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️
She also wrote a second comment:
Jealousy be uglyyyy💜
Laura Anderson also commented:

Maura’s boyfriend Chris Taylor also piped up with some cheeky – and characteristically weird – comments, writing:
Your eyeballs & skin make me dream about cheese and rainbows
And 'PS. That bush better watch it’s back, warming you up for Valentine’s like that,’ referring to the plant Maura is posing in front of in the photos.
