Have you seen Colbie Caillat in her video”Try?” A great message speaking to women on a plethora of levels about topics such as self-image, media, unrealistic expectations, what it means to be a striving woman living in America.

The observations Caillat makes about comments she has received from others when she’s not wearing makeup and looking “dolled” up definitely confirm my experiences.

The makeunder happens all while she sings “Try,” which the singer hopes will help take the focus off unrealistic beauty standards, and remind women to be true to themselves.
