Dove Real Beauty Sketches

This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in a while. In the video, an FBI trained forensic artist sits down and sketches up drawings of his subjects. The catch is, he doesn’t get to see their faces, and there are two versions for each person: one described by the subject himself/herself, and one described a third party. The results are quite different: one is “closed off and fatter, and sadder too”, while the other one is “open, friendly and happy”. Watch the video and see if you can guess which version is which.

We should be more grateful of your natural beauty; it impacts the decisions and friends that we make, the jobs that we apply for, how we treat others. It impacts everything. We are more beautiful than we say. We spend too much time trying to fix the things that aren’t “quite right” about ourselves, while we should spend more time appreciating the things that we do like.

YOU are more beautiful than you think! Most of us don’t recognise the beauty others see in us. Women are their own worst beauty critics. Imagine a world where beauty is source of confidence, not anxiety. This was a compelling social experiment to prove to women that they are more beautiful than they think.

The longer version below.
