You see a model walk down the street and she’s wearing jeans and a T-shirt, no make-up, her hair down, and she looks like a regular girl. For me just to look “natural” in a photo takes two hours of hair and makeup, good lighting, styling and Photoshop—and six hours later, you have the picture. But when I go home, it’s just me with no makeup, pimples, and a pair of a baggy pants. That’s life—the rest is fantasy. We all need to remember that a photo is just what beauty was to one photographer on one day. You can’t compare yourself to those pictures. You are real. Photos are two-dimensional. Beauty is three-dimensional. Your confidence, your personality, your presence—it all adds to what makes you beautiful.
