This moving video shows women taking off their makeup. The song helps women see that their value is not from their body image, it’s from being themselves.

I can’t believe how great lesson that i had missed.I just carelessly press “like” and never seriously read it.That’s my fault.However,I was gald i can re-opened this lesson in this special day.Great song!!! The music video is simple but expressed a lot,You must like yourself and don’t cover yourself in a heavy make-up in oder to attract other people’s favor.


You don’t have to try
You don’t have to try
Take your make-up off let your hair down
Take a breath look into the mirror at yourself
Don’t you like you
Cause I like you


Happy valentine’s Day!!!!

Hey, guys !


“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart, i think True beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows. 



What’s the whole point of being pretty on the outside when you’re so ugly on the inside?

We can use make up just little bit, not excessive, and we look more gorgeous.

I’m amazed how a simple video can provoke such emotions. It’s an inspiring song..well done, Colbie Caillat!


In all of the women – even with their imperfection – I can see how the deeper beauty shines out from within. There’s no need to hide behind excessive make-up. The best beauty advice ever: Smile!...and stay true to yourself!
