Beautiful Within


When reading The Truth About Beauty, Virginia Postrel describes how some people were blessed with good looks and others who are not as fortunate. In most advertisements you see women that are drop dead gorgeous. What people don’t know is that underneath all that caked on make-up, is just another woman. So how can hiding what you really look like be beautiful? I believe that being beautiful starts within. Women who are confident with themselves and aren’t afraid to show who they really are, is what I believe to be beautiful. But with many advertisements, it makes it hard for some females to be confident while seeing what is portrayed as beautiful. Even though it’s not your typical commercial, Dove’s commercial containing women of all sizes, helps people see that there is no such thing as perfection and that not all women are stick thin. In the beginning of the commercial they say, “ Every girl deserves to feel beautiful just the way she is,” which is true, everyone has feeling and just because one girl isn’t as beautiful on the outside as the rest, should not be treated like leper. There is nothing wrong with a girl eating a BIG, FAT, JUICY BURGER.

  1. I agree with you that make-up doesn't make beauty. I think that if you use makeup in the correct way it can highlight beauty but it should be used to cover anything up. Beauty should come from confidence.

  2. I think it's very true that beauty starts on the inside. There are a lot of mean girls who are pretty, but to me it makes them ugly if they are just not a kind person no matter how pretty they are on the outside. I love burgers too.

  3. a big fat juicy burger sounds delicious right now. And i agree about make up changing a person's features but i believe make up can be good. There is a limit of course but a little bit can't do anyone harm. If a girl has a make up shop on her face, i can see your point.

  4. Burgers rock!!!! Beauty is about what you think not what society says. Look at Adele!

  5. I'm 100% sure that those are two different people in the picture. No way surgery can do all that to change a persons face and chin.
