Fake Beauty

I got an email from a friend with a link to a YouTube video, and forwarded it to Tim, who then put it on his blog.
Go here to see the video, and then you'll understand this blog. :)

My heart broke for all the girls when I saw this video come to an end. Even after knowing that this girl doesn't look like they advertise her as, it's still hard to overcome all that culture has put into our heads on what we "should" look like. I would love to see magazines and billboards with real people on there who haven't had computerized touch-ups.

Even with watching tv, most of the women on there wouldn't normally look like they do 'cause they spend hours in the dressing room with professional make-up and hair artists working on them.

It's so sad what they're feeding girls! I'm curious to know how many guys actually expect girls to look better than what reality lets us.

Growing up I would force myself to not wear make-up for a period of time 'cause after a while I started feeling like I had to wear make-up. But I was just covering up what God has made. I didn't want to become dependent on it, and so self concious of what I really look like.

I love having a husband that likes what I look like naturally!

1 Samuel 16:7 (New Living Translation)

7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
