New Dove Film #MyBeautyMySay

 

What do Hillary Clinton, Madonna and the new cast of Ghostbusters have in common? All are women who society has recently attempted to use their appearance to belittle their achievements.

Never-ending commentary and judgment focused on how women look is deeply ingrained into daily life. Whether or not it is intentional, it can limit women and place pressure on them to conform to a narrow standard of beauty.

Today, Dove launched a NEW FILM to launch the #MyBeautyMySay campaign. Dove believes a woman’s beauty should not be used to trivialize her achievements and this new campaign empowers women to rise above beauty being used against them. The film profiles nine real women and their unique stories on how they overcame the beauty limits that were placed on them to inspire and encourage women to celebrate beauty on their own terms

Dove Research Stats:

  • 7 in 10 women agree that women and girls receive more compliments/comments about the way they look, than on their accomplishments, but women want to be seen for more than just their looks
  • 1 in 2 women with low self-esteem have not been assertive in expressing their opinions or stuck to their decisions because they didn’t feel good about the way they looked
  • Women agree (74%) it is the unique characteristics of a woman that make up her beauty
  • In order to feel confident 86% of women feel it is important to do something you really love

 

I love this video. As a woman and a mother of a pre-teen daughter this is a cause near and dear to my heart.

The Truly Kissable Lip Crayon goes on silky smooth and feels hydrating on my lips. The color is pretty long lasting and I love the demi-matte look.

HONEST BEAUTY TRULY KISSABLE LIP CRAYON – DEMI-MATTE $18.00
Our lip crayon offers antioxidant-rich jojoba seed oil, murumuru butter and 
shea butter to help moisturize and cushion for a demi-matte finish. Satin texture glides on for quick, convenient color any way you want it.

Directions:
Use the rounded crayon tip to line and fill in the lips in one easy swipe. The demi-matte finish offers the rich color of a lipstick in the convenience of a twist-up lip crayon. No sharpener required.

Tips:
Start by tracing around the outer edges of the lips then filling the inner part of the lips for saturated color. Blot for a more matte look.

When I first saw this shade I was worried it would be way to dark. But it came out a beautiful sheer shade that really accented my cheeks. The formula is creamy and very buildable and lasts all day.

HONEST BEAUTY CRÈME BLUSH TRULY TEASING $22.00
Infused with antioxidant-rich raspberry, grape and blackberry fruit extracts, our cream blush blends into skin for a natural-looking, healthy glow. Look flushed in a flash!

Using your finger, lightly dab the blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend in a circular motion. Crème blush can be applied after foundation and powder for buildable coverage.

Smile to find the apples of your cheeks and apply a small amount of Crème Blush for a pop of color. For those selfie moments, apply about 25% more blush than normal.

Finally an eyeliner that can outlast me. I have about 10 eyeliners at any given time and even the waterproof ones seem to fade or disappear as the day goes on. I tried the Truly Cocoa and Truly Sapphire shades and love them both. They go on velvety smooth as the name says without tugging or making a mess. And these liners stay where you put them until you wash them off. Perfect for summer and the heat, sweat and splashes in the face from my kids!

Plush eye pencil lines and defines. Vivid color in a creamy finish blends smoothly with built-in eyeliner smudger. Innovative plant based formula conditions and protects sensitive skin with naturally derived antioxidants including mango seed oil, vitamin E and macadamia oil. Scribble. Smudge. Smile.
