According to a recent study, only 2% of women describe themselves as 'beautiful'. Fashion magazines instruct women how to 'look ten years younger,' 'cover up wrinkles,' or get fuller, plumper lips'. And even make-up products themselves play off women's insecurities, promising to conceal perceived flaws, define cheekbones, or make eyelashes fuller and longer. The underlying message? That there's something inherently wrong with the way women look and that they have to spend time, money, and energy keeping up with all the ways they should 'fix' themselves.
