Society always says "you're all beautiful in your own way." But then society says "you have to be a specific kind of person, with specific hair, specific looks, specific body type, specific everything." Society itself is hypocritical. We all need to accept people for the way they are and see that if the person is happy with how they look, then leave them alone. Bullying isn't needed.. Especially since nobody's better than anyone. That's why so many people feel down these days. It's like you have to reach certain standards to be attractive. It truly is sad.

They are trying to match themselves to celebrities and models in magazines, without the time and expensive makeup it takes to get that "look". I always thought of myself as ordinary looking, but one even I got the clothes and makeup JUST RIGHT. I was dumbfounded. I hadn't know I could look like that. I was at a scifi convention and even the actors and writers who were there were looking at me, and three of them can to talk to me, rather than me having to go to them. But I have never gotten quite that perfect (for me) look again. If I had the money to hire experts, though, I could have looked that way every day.
The point is, it takes time and experimenting with makeup to achieve a "look" for yourself. Don't sit around envying people who have spent thousand to look the way they do. Work on yourself, but to look like YOURSELF.

I agree to a degree to advicegirl's "advice" with regard to society being hypocritical about it. Though not all really do view themselves in this light. Some, dare I say most contemplate and come to a conclusion that they are not mostly due to insecurity and lack of reassurance from people around them to prove as such. I truly believe that people have beauty within themselves but problem comes when someone good is brought up to somewhere that's not good with people that continue to influence them through societal pressure and environmental factors that has a lot to do with how they eventually treat others and themselves. Family and friends play a big deal when it comes to this as well. So? It's a whole load of factors that come in when it comes to dealing with such sensitive and subjective topic.
