still trying to get it right at 42.

I saw the video and then watched it a few more times to see exactly what it was that they were changing. I watched how they made her up with all the make up and hair and how many people it took to make her look "beautiful." We are doommed from the beginning because in my house there is only me, and a make up artist I am not. Then watching how they manipulate the picture to make her look "better." Most of don't look like models and then to see that even the model gets touched up because she is not perfect enough for the end photo.

How can we live up to that? It sets us up for failure from the begining. We are told we need to look a certain way to be happy, to get the best man, to get the best job, to have a happy family but you can't be that way because it does not exist. It is a computer program.

No wonder we women are all on diets, spending millions of dollars buying make up that promises us we can look the best we can, if we just buy this product. I am tired of spening money to get noticiably long eyelashes and all the foundations I have purchased to get the most natural coverage I could open my own beauty store.

It is depressing to not be perfect and to not be beautiful from an industry that does not exist but yet exists enough to make us feel inadequate in our bodies, our spirit and our souls.

When will this ever end? I feel sorry for young girls today the bar is set so high, I hope someone can lower it before most girls and women give up before they are even allowed to start.
