Stars Without Make Up On

December 18, 2013 2 min read

We live in a world that is incredibly skewed.  It is a world in which we have to remind ourselves that the men and women in the movies, on television, in magazines, and on billboards are altered. Why is it that we let ourselves believe that something is achievable when it is so blatantly computer generated?  Why do we crave perfection and why is it necessary? As far as J-Law goes, most people love her without all the makeup on and heavy use of photoshop. Is it because she presents an achievable level of beauty?  Or it is that she remains comfortable in her own skin? Sadly though, its not just celebrities that we hold to some crazy standard of perfection.  Our politicians and leaders are faced this idea that you always have to be perfect. You are supposed to be the "example" to everyone else for perfect dress, manners, appearance, family, etc. and it is so difficult to maintain.  Even the hint of scandal is enough to have newspaper editors salivating over the next juicy piece of flesh. Why is it then that these photos of celebrities without makeup on creates the hubbub that it does?  Because it is rare?  And why is it rare?  In 2011 a study found that 1/3 of women wouldn't even step out of the house without makeup on, even if they were only shopping for groceries.    Six out of ten wouldn’t consider going to work without it – and almost half of all women say they prefer wearing cosmetics than going bare-faced.  For some, it’s no different even when they’re at home. One in ten of those polled admitted they would never let their partner see them without a full face on. The question then arises, is makeup the only thing that is holding our self esteem up as women?  Has it become our mask?  Our war paint?  Whereas for men whose worth is measured by their success in the boardroom or on the court or in the battlefield...women are constantly measured by the style of their clothes, their body, and their outward beauty.  Every day we are gauged on outward appearance instead of personal achievements.  Perhaps that's why then that we can't bear to leave the house without trying to erase our flaws and amp up our natural features.  Masks protect true identities.  That's why Batman wears one.  And makeup does the same. Look at the stark differences reflected her and check your idea of beauty. Gisele Bundchen Exclusive...
