Almost every statement made by Bright Side about this illusion is factually incorrect, including the fact that they fail to properly credit the creators. Extremely bad science reporting and editing. Here is the original contribution from 2012 by Tangen, Murphy, and Thompson in the Best Illusion of the Year Contest: http://illusionoftheyear.com/2012/05/when-pretty-girls-turn-ugly-the-flashed-face-distortion-effect/
