Alexa's Tinder matches increased by 250% when she used Photoshopped photos.

A step-by-step tutorial for getting more matches on Tinder.

For those unfamiliar with Tinder, its premise is simple.

You are presented with what seems like an infinite amount of photos, and you are required to swipe right if you like them, and swipe left if you don’t.

One beauty vlogger recently decided to test just how superficial this whole process is though.

Uploading three make-up free selfies, Alexa Mitchell (who goes by Maican Girl on Youtube) swiped right on 100 photos.

She then retouched the same photos, and swiped right on 100 more people 5 hours later. The results are astounding.

With the unretouched photos, Mitchell received 16 matches.

With the retouched ones, 75 according to Daily Mail.

Ahh Tinder, you shallow, shallow app.

In good news, her video does provide a handy demonstration on how to retouch photos.

Silver lining?

In case you can’t watch the video, here are the progressions of her photos:
