Have you seen the short film put out by Dove for their Campaign for real beauty? If you haven’t you really should watch this 1 minute video.
A woman goes through having her face and hair done up for a photo shoot for an ad.
Near the end of the film, once she’s all made up and looking beautiful- going from no make up and being an average looking woman to a beautifully glamorous woman – you see her photo on a computer screen being adjusted for the ad. Her features are changed, some times very slightly, others dramatically using photoshop.
The whole point of this film is to show that none of the photos of beautiful models, actresses or actors that we see in magazines are real. They don’t look like that in real life. No one does!
Watch this very short film and tell me how you feel after seeing it:
How do you feel about your favorite magazines now?
