IT’S SO COOL TO LOOK AT STRETCH MARKS AND REALISE THAT THEY ARE SIGNS OF YOUR BODY EASING OUT TO ACCOMMODATE YOU! YOUR INNER BITS WERE LIKE “HEY WE NEED MORE” AND YOUR OUTER BITS WERE LIKE “OK IT’LL TAKE SOME HASTY BACKSTAGE-BEFORE-THE-PREMIERE STITCHING BUT WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN” AND YOU ARE STILL ABLE TO MOVE THE AUDIENCE TO TEARS BY SINGING YOUR SOLO IN THE APPROPRIATE COSTUMING. FLESH IS SO DIFFICULT, INCREDIBLY SO FOR SOME PEOPLE, BUT IT’S NEAT TO BE ABLE TO GIVE IT A LITTLE BOW DURING CURTAIN CALL IF YOU FEEL UP TO IT
this is so important
Oh my god
Proper makeup application is an art form. The movie stars and models you see on TV have an expert painting their look on. Literally. With brushes. The ones you see in magazines have not only a master artist painting their face, but a skilled team correcting their image with software later.
Everyone is beautiful. The difference between any person you meet today and a person praised for their looks is three hours in a makeup chair.
It has taken me a long time to be comfortable with all of this, and up until a year ago I never would have been able to post ANYTHING like this. I may not be the most confident person in the world, but i’m happy with how I am!
P.S. Excuse the redness on my belly, my jeans were a tad bit on the tight side tonight:)

I think the source of my complaint is that we have a body positive community that says all bodies are beautiful but still, in probably subconscious ways, rewards having a body that is the mainstream ideal, only scaled up.
There is a feeling of being too fat to be pretty according to societal standards and then too shapeless to be pretty according to fat standards. There is in some ways a hierarchy of fat bodies where some echoes of the dominant ideal are reinforced. Even fat clothing retailers favor an hourglass body type or proportions that are “curvy”.
Hell the fuck to the yes god damn mothafuckin’ straight up truth. As a superfat who definitely does NOT have that “ideal” fat body, there is nothing more recognizable than this issue right here.
And it’s dangerous for those who are new to the movement as well as those who are still working through a lot of shit with their body image.
Co-signed. Fucking fed up with still not being visible/included.
let me tell you about the magical properties of the ‘red lip’
- it looks good on anyone
- there’s a shade for everyone
- it makes you feel like you can conquer the world
- and then you will proceed to conquer the world
- instant bad vibez repellant
- the red lip is not to look like a babe. u r a babe already. it allows for a moment of self actualization. you realize, ‘god damn i am a babe’
