Almost Perfect!Research- http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=322838180744Almost-perfect woman: (1) in no way, to no degree, to such a great extent, is she flawless; (2) messes up often, talkstoo much; (3) wears glasses or contacts; (4) is goofy or awkward sometimes and has many bad hair days; (5) missesthe mark way too much; (6) struggles to manage her emotions and gets mad at people who cannot drive; (7) can’t geta handle on things and doesn’t always fit in; (8) is always on a diet or is overweight or underweight but never smallenough in just the “right” way; (9) is way too nice; (10) has anger issues; (11) always gets the raw deal and has hadenough.To me, that about says it all. Women are not perfect, and as a man, I can vouch I have some of these “almost-perfect”qualities myself. Anderson is letting us know that we live in the real world. Even when she discusses etiquette, shemakes it clear she’s not writing about etiquette for queens, but simple common sense about table manners, how toanswer the phone, and what is appropriate to wear to work.Pictures- before and after (make up, plastic surgery...) these pictures tells us aboutwomen/teenagers who goes under the knife or make up just to look perfect. Sometimes itdoesn’t work but sometimes it does.

Jocelyn WildensteinThe pictures that I have found on Google are examples of women/young adult who goesto an extremely length of becoming so called ‘perfect’. While researching this pictures ifound out that is mostly celebrity in the media industry that takes that extra length ofbecoming perfect.Media sometimes inspire young children’s of becoming a star in the media industry butwhat they fail to inspire is to be themselves. Take Miley Cyrus for example (her picturebelow) she is a Disney channel star and movie star, she has a unique talent but she had todo something about her appearance to make her more likeable on the TV. This just show that not just only women but men as well who goes under plastic surgery or any other things just to perfect their look (but it could ruin you Jocelyn Wildenstein) Miley Cyrus

A Survey of 3,000 women produced some disheartening results about how makeup still runsthe lives of women. • One of -of five boyfriends has never seen their girlfriends without makeup- not even in bed. • 41% of the women polled said they would be mortified if a colleague saw them without makeup. • One of- of five said they would not let even close girlfriends see them without makeup. • One third would not even consider leaving home unarmed with a full grooming kit— including lip balm, eyeliner, deodorant, and hairbrush. • 71% said they are much prettier with makeup on.What are we afraid of?Is it the airbrushed faces we are bombarded with? The magazines in the checkout line, thebillboards, the commercials? Why are we afraid to let the world—our best friends, our lovers—see our true faces?Society shames women about their bodies, about their natural appearance. Women areashamed to be seen without makeup, yet men are unafraid to show their true faces. Womenare taught that there is something wrong with the way they look naturally. They are taughtthat the hair on their bodies is disgusting. Yet men are unashamed of their hair. Society isdisgusted by a woman’s gray hair and wrinkles as she ages. Yet a man is still admired despite—maybe even because of—the signs of his maturity. (“‘The two most attractive men aroundtoday are Hugh Grant and George Clooney. And when they smile, they have those wrinklesand they look great. You don’t think, ‘Ugh.’ You think, ‘He looks wonderful.”” BBC news)If you wear makeup every day—if you would be embarrassed to go to the office or outto dinner with no makeup on—I have a challenge for you. Tomorrow, use one lessproduct. Skip the mascara, or use a lip balm instead of the lipstick you wear everyday. Do itfor a week, or a month. Get used to seeing your new face in the mirror. A face that is one stepcloser to the real you. When you get used to yourself, stop using another product. Take it onestep at a time.There’s nothing wrong with makeup. What’s wrong is when you need to use it to feel right.That is not your face you are used looking at in the mirror every day. That is the face societygave you—the face society approves of and wants you to have. Wear your own face.
