Chrissy Teigen is offering up her Facetuning services after an awkwardly edited photo of Newt Gingrich and his wife got called out as a complete fail.

Callista Gingrich shared the photo of her and her husband, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, to Twitter on Saturday.

[email protected] and I wish you a lovely weekend!” she wrote.

While strategically editing photos before uploading them to social media has become extremely common, the key is to use a light and even touch.

Unfortunately, that is very much not what happened here.

The blur placed across Callista’s forehead, presumably to hide wrinkles, unless she got a secret face tattoo nobody knows about, not only cuts off abruptly before reaching her sunglasses, it also extends ever-so-slightly into her hairline, making it fairly obvious that she just did a quick finger swipe in Facetune or a similar app.

Adding to the awkwardness of the photo is that Newt’s image doesn’t appear to have been edited at all—wrinkles and unevenly toned skin stand out in sharp contrast to Callista’s, well, blur.

That’s when Teigen stepped up to not only suggest Newt get “a girl who will Facetune u both.”

Of course, she didn’t want to leave him hanging either, so she went ahead and did the honors herself.

I daresay the results match Callista’s quite well.

And Teigen wasn’t the only one to offer a helping hand—or just dunk on the couple for the awkward photo.

Weirdly enough, this is far from the first time Callista has been called out for Facetune fails.

She seems to have discovered the app back in 2018, and has been called out for using it on photos of both her and her husband far too often and far, far too poorly.

For someone who clearly loves Facetune this much, you’d think she would have become a little more skilled with it by now. But perhaps you just can’t rush art.
