Colbie Caillat's "Try" Fights Beauty Standards!
Colbie Caillat's new music video for "Try" has been stunning audiences with its commentary on makeup, retouching and beauty expectations since it released last week!
The video starts off like any other music video, with Colbie, as well as a number of other women of all ages, sizes and ethnicities, looking glamorous as they sing along to the track.
As the song continues, however, the ladies wipe off their makeup, and digital enhancements are removed, revealing their natural beauty.
The song tells the story of a woman who goes out of her way to look beautiful and stay thin, but only because it's expected of her.
As the track continues, it reminds girls everywhere that they don't have to change themselves to impress others. Society shouldn't pressure them into being who they're not. Instead, you should live for yourself.
As Colbie removes her makeup, false eyelashes and hair extensions, we see just what the song is about. She hopes that showing off her natural self can help move society's expectations of what beauty is all about.
Before and after footage toward the end of the video proves these women are just as fierce and fabulous without makeup, salon hairdos and Photoshop!
"Try" is one of the songs off Colbie's new album, Gypsy Heart. She decided that her album art would have no retouching, because she wants to send out a positive message to women everywhere.
