In 2017, most women have the need to look the prettiest and the gorgeous female ever. Unfortunately, that need leads women to hide their intelligence to show their beauty perfection. In my opinion, the most problem facing women in this time is the enormous amount of effort spent to show the effortless perfection to others. In a result, people will assume the beauty perfection of women is natural while it mostly comes from the plastic surgeries, diets, workouts, and the beauty make up too.
The definition of true beauty continues to evolve as generations pass and new ones emerge. Ulta Beauty, a popular cosmetic store, sells products with the aim to make women feel confident in their skin. Their use of advertisements helps spread the word about new, improved product lines and reach out to potential buyers. Selling makeup is the obvious goal of a cosmetic store, but the kind of consumers they attract and how varies between different franchises. When a company displays their products in one shot instead of in a commercial, the task of conveying the message becomes harder. Ulta Beauty persuades women to purchase their products by pointing out buyers’ insecurities while still appearing to promote empowering feminist values.
“You will never look like the girl in the magazine. The girl in the magazine doesn’t even look like the girl in the magazine” Jessimae Peluso. Throughout American history, women have continued to strive for an ideal of beauty. Although the definition of beauty has varied between generations, the pressure and desire to fit the mold of what society deems “beautiful” remains consistent among women from all eras. Unfortunately, this abnormal example seen in magazines, on runways, and in social media platforms is impossible for the majority of the female population to physically reach. Women are always pursuing the perfect look, turning to plastic surgeries transform them into celebrity ideals. People who desire perfect appearance ignore the nature of beauty itself, naturality is a kind of beauty. In recent years, women in America turned to look at models to find the ideal beauty standard and if they don’t meet them they turn to face lifts and plastic surgery to perfect their appearance.

Americans have grown to try and look their best no matter what and this all stems from the way people view body image. Today someone could have anything they want done to change their appearance. “We are a culture of beauty junkies, addicts continually looking for our next fix to keep us looking young and pretty” (Masterson). Masterson believes that people are addicted to beauty and it is almost like a drug. This is not far from the truth. People go overboard to look as good as they possibly can with things like plastic surgery, botox, and even simple things like makeup. With the obsession with beauty as bad as it is today one seems to never be satisfied with how they look. “But that uplifting message--I'm OK the way I am--is overshadowed by the dark view readers are left with of a society obsessed with looks that isn't showing signs of stopping” (Masteron). The idea of someone being ok with their appearance gets quickly changed when they look around and see the world and the obsession it has. This is a huge reason body image is so bad in America now, because as soon as someone feels comfortable with their looks the standard changes. America’s obsession with looks is one of the biggest factors in the negative change towards body
While people consider it to be an art form in today’s world, in the field of advertising these programs help to alter a person and their body to promote absolute flawlessness. The images are so extensively manipulated so as to produce the person with perfect skin, perfect features, and a perfect body.

They fill their lives with daily routines that maintain an image as close to perfection as they can. Exercising, putting on accessories, picking their outfit of the day and attempting to apply varying amounts makeup for an effortless look is a lifestyle common to many womem. Despite these notions, CoverGirl promotes a message that one’s own look is not as strenuous as countless women believe it to be and that applying makeup every day does not imply that women are required to create masks or layers of fake skin to feel beautiful. Makeup should simply be an aid for women who need that extra boost of confidence for the day. CoverGirl proves this to their loyal customers through their “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, CoverGirl” campaign. This slogan explains their goal; it highlights the importance of natural beauty and embodies the idea of simply enhancing that beauty with just a touch of their makeup. Advertisements can deceive with the words that they say and the images they show, but there are always stronger factors that overcome the hidden assumptions in every advertisement.

A wise person once said “we never notice the beauty because we are too busy trying to create it”. With social media promoting the idea that a beautiful woman is flawless, it is hard for women to feel good about themselves. From a young age to late adulthood, women constantly struggle to look beautiful in our culture’s eyes. One of the biggest issues we face is the use of photoshop. Magazines and billboards edit their models so much that it hardly looks like the model when the editing is completed. It is time to teach girls that what they do for society is far greater than how they look to society. It is time to stop hating our flaws and start embracing them. It is time to promote natural beauty rather than dwell on the impossible task of attaining

The vague yet appealing words such as “high-tech”, “revitalize”, “radiant”, and “age-defying” make this product seem modern, efficient, and effective.

Everyone loves to feel beautiful, but what is the price? Everyday there is a woman painting painting her nails, a man running gel through his hair, and a mother rubbing lotion on her childs skin. These are looked over like normal activities but they contain a dark secret. This secret can lead to death, pain, and injuries. In fact, it has been in the dark so long, that many people choose to ignore it. What is this secret?

Often times, women are pressured by the mainstream media to upkeep a stellar appearance. They are expected to measure up to high standards without question. Even before most girls reach puberty, commercials are bombarding them with small Barbie esque makeup kits filled with lip glosses and chalky eyeshadows. The impact it has on impressionable children, both girls and boys is something that will likely last a lifetime if unlearned. Cosmetic companies who are marketing to young ladies say they can simply improve their looks to gain acceptance from their peers if they use the products they are selling. The makeup industry is a multi million enterprise that makes a profit from women’s insecurities and amplified pressures from society as a common tactic many cosmetic campaigns use is to push women to embrace the ‘natural look’ by providing products that will make it appear as if the individual is not even wearing makeup. Companies will spout out that with these products, the end result will be ‘you, but better.’ It is somewhat of an underlying and slightly manipulating slogan, as if to say how a woman appears could be improved because it is lacking in the moment. This distorts how we all believe how a woman is suppose to look.
