This short paper proposes a preliminary and yet insightful investigation of racial biases in beauty filters techniques currently used on social media. The obtained results are a call to action for researchers in Computer Vision: such biases risk being replicated and exaggerated in the Metaverse and, as a consequence, they deserve more attention from the community.
