Faith Hill with no make-up and hair undone.
What do you think?
“The usually impeccably polished Mrs. McGraw, 44, was sporting a black sweater, comfy pants, and a makeup-free face. We’re totally in support of the au natural look, but poor Faith is simply unrecognizable in her airport ensemble.
“We could get past the makeup-less face (everyone has bad days, right?) but we really wish Faith had gotten her hands on a hairbrush before leaving the house. That’s what ponytails are for!
Even though this startled us, we have faith that Faith will get it together next time.” – Washington Post Social Reader
A reader forwarded me this article scrutinizing Faith Hill for her natural look. He was miffed that the media would be so cruel, especially since reading my posts on natural beauty. But, of course, this is nothing new. The media will tear down who has even the slightest “flaw” in their appearance. It has become one of the greater problems in our society; because we not only start to hold people who have made a name for themselves to a higher standard, but we ourselves start to believe that we have to look that way all the time, too. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in getting dressed, putting on make-up and doing my hair, but I shouldn’t feel bad on the days I just don’t have the time to make myself look like a superstar. And if I was flying 14+ hours to Australia I would be sporting Faith’s ensemble… and my bedhead, of course! If they really were “totally in support of the au natural look” they wouldn’t have picked on her, would’ve they?
And maybe there is something to say about her being unrecognizable. Maybe that is part of the reason why we are so hard on ourselves. When we look in the mirror in the morning, without our make-up on and hair done, do we recognize ourselves? If that is the case for you, think about simplifying it on a daily basis. Leave the mascara and curlers for the weekend or special occasions and feel good about your simple beauty on a daily basis.
In and interview with Larry King:
KING: How do you deal with the intense interest in your, the scrutiny, by your fans, by the media? Faith, does it ever get overwhelming?
HILL: I’m not out there enough to be scrutinized. But definitely when I am it’s, you know, sometimes it’s hurtful and most times you just kind of have to blow it off. But because I am confident in what I do and I’m comfortable in myself in my own skin and when you’re a mom and you have three children, nothing bothers you. Trust me. Who cares what people say? I’ve got other things to deal with. But for the most part everyone’s pretty nice.
Faith is beautiful in her own skin and you should be too!
