Video ♥ You Are More Beautiful Than You Think - Dove





I heard about  Dove's Real Beauty Sketches Campaign a couple of days ago but didn’t see it until today. Dove has been running their campaigns about real beauty for quite a while, and I have enjoyed all of them, but this one is definitely one of my favorites.

They conducted a social experiment in which they have an FBI forensic artist ask women questions about themselves in order to draw a portrait, at the same time, they are asked to befriend a woman for the day and then describe her to the artist. At the end they show both portraits; the one described by themselves and the other by some one else. Both extremely different from on another and producing mixed emotions to each woman.

I love the message they are sending, we are more beautiful than we think, but we are so harsh on ourselves that it’s hard to see. We are our biggest critic, we should try to focus on our best features instead of finding flaws in ourselves. Love yourself!

See all the sketches here.
