TRANSCRIPT: 

“I’m sorry you have to touch my face. Look at this breakout; I look disgusting.”

“I’m sorry, but I am not a pretty woman.”

“No. Thank you, but no. I look like crap.”

“The doctor says that I have to lose weight. So, sorry. This is what you got to work with.”

“I look in the mirror, and all I see is a tired mom. And I see these wrinkles, and I feel old and ugly.”

And this is what I hear every single solitary day of my life. I am a makeup artist, and these are real words from real women.

I’m also an actress, but for my past 7 years of doing makeup, I have discovered, within the first 3 seconds of sitting in my chair, almost every single woman apologizes to me for the way she looks. Doesn’t matter how young, how old, what socioeconomic background she comes from, how traditionally beautiful she is, almost every single woman apologizes and does not feel that she measures up to this new standard of beauty.
