I found a gallery of photos of several glamorous stars shown with and without makeup. Some of the images are scary because the contrast between makeup vs. no makeup is HUGE.
It really makes you think about what is beauty and what is not.
After seeing these stars without makeup, I had to ask myself why we buy into this fake image. All we are doing is creating a lie that no one can live up to without the help of talented professionals.
When I first moved to France one of the first things I noticed was that women on tv didn’t look so ‘perfect’. They looked real. Sadly, these same women on the news or talk shows are becoming more and more flawless due to the use of makeup.
I prefer them as they were before.
Even if I am not flawless, I don’t look so bad compared to the world’s most beautiful women without the magic of their makeup artists.
I am challenging all my female readers to compare the photos of these stars to a photo of themselves without makeup.
I am sure that all of you are naturally as beautiful if not more beautiful than these stars are without the wonders of lots and lots of makeup.
When you look at a photo of a star never compare yourself to it. That photo is not real.
