This post is for all those ladies out there who find themselves looking in the mirror (and I mean REALLY looking – you’re up close and examining every pore and wrinkle) and thinking to themselves “Why am I looking so old / oily / tired / saggy etc? Angelina Jolie doesn’t look like this!”. And the fact is that we all do it. We see these pictures of celebrities in magazines who are the same age or even older than us, and they look absofrackinglutely perfect, and we get upset when we don’t look the same.
But the fact is that lighting, the right makeup, and knowing how to use your face and pose for pictures, means that these ladies get away with murder. And the reality of what their faces look like is very different. So here are a few celebrity close-up photos, via http://celebrityclose-up.com/. Obviously there are some celebrities that are 42 and flawless. These are freaks of nature, or so plastic that they won’t need cryogenically freezing to preserve their bodies when they die.
I know I know – you’re all thinking “shame Jen, that’s so mean!”, but stop and think about how mean you are to yourself when your face is 3 inches away from the mirror. Time to give yourself a break and realise that no one is perfect!
