Beautiful Media Images Relationship expert author Dr. Molly Barrow

Do you ever compare yourself with the images that you see in magazines? Often the disparity can leave us feeling crest fallen and depressed. However, keep in mind that a team of expert have created that image using every trick in the book. Careful touch-ups to the photo can erase every flaw, draw in abs where none exist and shrink thighs with the stroke of a computer mouse. Take Faye for example. Faye Dunaway in the Tomas Crown Affair had perfect long fingernails that she tapped gently on the chess board. They were fake. Her profile was perfection with an elaborate hairdo that was fake hair. The lightening glowed with deep red and golden tones that enhanced the room and the actor's faces. Her darkly lashed eyes simmered as she looked at Steve McQueen. The eyelashes were fake. I met Ms. Dunaway when we did a picture together called Evita Perone and again at the Sundance film festival. She was a beautiful woman and fine actress but in person she looks just like the rest of the attendees superstars in their jeans and sunglasses. Cudo's to Tyra Banks in her book Tyra's Beauty Inside and Out that showed her before and after. I say this not to take away the beautiful images created by talented people, but to save the self esteem of young girls and boys who may be hyper critical of themselves. If you watch some of the popular makeover shows you will see the artistry that can transform the plainest Jane or Joe into a knockout. We often dissect our faces and bodies to focus only on our perceived flaws and inadequacies. But when we observe someone else we focus on their best traits, giving them far too much benefit. Assume you are good enough and carry on with being the best you can be at something, or just relax and enjoy your journey as a knockout or a nice person. The latter has far more value in the long run.
