Beauty & Fashion

You NEED to See This Video- It Goes In Line With My Before and After Shots!

No wonder a girl’s depiction of beauty is so distorted from the media. Real girls, (even supermodels because I’ve worked with them!) hardly look like their retoutched image in real life. So girls, when you see pictures in magazines, you have to know that they’ve been professionally styled with the best hair and makeup, and even that’s not good enough! Do you ever have a hard time comparing yourself to the ‘perfect’ images we see everyday?

God made you so incredibly beautiful just the way you are, no photoshop needed! Now go out and rock it girls.

    They showed this at the camp I went to last summer. I don’t remember the lesson that went along with it, but I think it had to do with “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.” My friend woke me up at 5 am every morning for the whole two weeks and I’d go with her to the bathroom where she’d put on all her makeup and straighten her hair before anyone could see her. If she started sweating the makeup off, she’d go back to the cabin and re-apply everything. ):

    They showed this at our school! It was awesome to know the reality of this situation!

    Whenever you show your “Before & After” pictures, I always think of this video. Thank you so much!!!!!!!

    I….. can’t stop watching this….. Goodness I could hit the ‘replay’ button 50 times before I stop. I’m so shocked!!!

    Wow… and to think young girls want to look like people in the commercials and magazines :(…. that’s so pitiful. We as women need to look in the mirror everyday…and say..Wow i look beautiful. There is more than one definition of beauty because your face is your own definition! Not only look at the beauty in your face…look into your eyes and down into your soul and you’ll see what i mean!

    they showed this video at my church to demonstrate how it doesnt matter wher you look like b/c God looks at your heart..if only people were that way too

    Wow! She was beautiful just the way she was, why ruin the natural beauty with the makeup and airbrushing? People need to remember God thinks we are beautiful, and that is what matters!

    Oh wow! This is a really good video! That’s so crazy!

  12. Posted by on May 27, 2011 at 14:07

    Wow! I knew what you saw on billboards and in magazines wasn’t what the models really looked like, but I never knew it was that drastic.

    Another movie like this is the music video for More Beautiful You by Jonny Diaz, a Christian singer. It shows the whole process too but has a cool song that goes with it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXSkd8apbWM This is the youtube link to it.

    Another good on is More Beautiful You by Johnny Diaz music video very similar.

      I’ve seen this video thanks for reminding me I’ll post it!

  15. Posted by on May 25, 2011 at 16:11

    That is a lot of changing. She looked AMAZING before they did the computer touch ups! It didn’t even look like the same person when they finished. It’s really sad that advertisers do that.

    • Posted by Nicole on May 25, 2011 at 21:47

      I know it really is, it’s SO fake you have no idea!

  16. Posted by on May 25, 2011 at 13:25

    I’ve been looking for this video for a few years now! My aunt showed it to me so I’m glad you posted it!(:

  17. Posted by on May 25, 2011 at 12:58

    Wow, seriously? I admit I get a little jealous sometimes when I see such a beautiful girl with a seemingly perfect body in a magazine, or really, any where I go since those advertisements are everryywhere! But this, I really didn’t expect. Its so shocking what photoshop and makeup can do to you.

  18. Posted by on May 23, 2011 at 04:03

    awesome!

  19. Posted by on May 23, 2011 at 01:59

    They showed the girls this in our Sunday School and we were all amazed. It’s sad how girls are abusing their bodies to look like this when it’s not reality.

  20. Posted by on May 22, 2011 at 16:35

    A lot of us girls feel sad about our appearances, like me. I sometimes feel pretty, other times I feel ugly. The media really DOES have a big impact on us. Thank you. And girls out there: You are beautiful,and God made you perfectly. Psalm 139 🙂

  21. Posted by on May 22, 2011 at 14:24

    This is amazing! Even using so much enhancement, they still feel the need to digitally perfect everything. I have an opinion that I always say when my friends talk about things like dying their hair (I don’t believe it’s wrong, but I do have an opinion :D). I always say “God made you with YOUR hair, YOUR eyes, and YOUR everything else because HE thinks it looks good on you. God designs each of us like an artist painting a random person out of their head; the painter simply puts down what he thinks look best, designing a person that may not even exist.” So ladies, GOD MADE YOU THE WAY YOU ARE BECAUSE HE LIKES YOU LIKE THAT! So don’t try to change God’s drawing to match the Media’s Photoshop. :DDD Thanks nicole for all you’re doing. 😀

    • Posted by Nicole on May 22, 2011 at 21:41

      Hey Amanda! You are so kind for telling me that. You’re right, God DID make us with all our special qualities, and our unique faces perfect as they are! Spread this article so other girls you know can see it too!

  22. Posted by on May 22, 2011 at 11:29

    I can’ believe that!! The magazine ads are so fake. Thanks for opening our eyes Nicole, Project Inspired is so fun 🙂

  23. Posted by on May 22, 2011 at 11:27

    Wow- this is truly crazy.

  24. Posted by on May 21, 2011 at 22:18

    Wow!!! That was absolutely an eye opener! Wow… I can’t believe that they can do that with a computer! They stretched her neck out, made her eyes bigger, they changed so much! wow

  25. Posted by on May 21, 2011 at 17:29
