Colbie Caillat has taken the ‘anti-photoshop’ message to a new level.
In her video for her song ‘Try’, she starts with everyone made up to the nines, and then strips the makeup, extensions, fake eyelashes and photoshopping that make them look supernatural away to reveal what they really look like.
What they really look like is great. I like them even better than the faces caked with makeup.
Especially for Colbie. It seems that the rest of the women in the video are normal everyday people. Colbie, on the other hand, is in my opinion, one of the world’s most beautiful stars. When she undoes all of her makeup, do I still think she is that beautiful?
Yes. That is exactly what I am referring to in this post I wrote about beauty and the photoshop controversy. It’s not that she is more beautiful with make up, although it is more pleasing to the eye. It’s a different kind of beauty.
I just appreciate her showing both sides. I remember when there was a time when we would never even see women we live around without make up. To see these huge stars without it really puts things in perspective.
