Imagine if you were asked to explain your own beauty to someone. Would you struggle?
Yeah. You and the other 3.5 billion women on the planet.
The reality is that most of us can’t see our own beauty like the people around us can. We’re constantly underestimating ourselves. In fact, only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful.
This video will change the way that you think and feel about your own beauty….
An FBI-trained forensic artist, Gil Zamora, created sketches of seven women who were hidden behind a curtain; he used their self-descriptions as the basis of his drawings. Prior to the session with Zamora, each of the women were also asked to spend some time with a stranger – without being told why. Zamora then also drafted sketches from the stranger’s depictions of the women.
And the result? Well, we’ll let you see for yourself.
The Dove Real Beauty Sketches campaign encourages women to reassess how they see themselves.
