Colbie Caillat Goes Make-Up Free In Latest Video [VIDEO/POLL]
Are women peer pressured or socially pressured to wear makeup? There is a lot of pressure on women to look their best all the time by wearing make-up, something Colbie Caillat addresses in her latest song “Try”. The lyric video for the song recently appeared on YouTube and features Colbie, her fans and celebrity women without makeup on. Colbie admits getting some of her celebrity friends to pose with little or no makeup took a little convincing for them to show their real face to the world.
Appearing in the video are Sheryl Crow, Sara Bareilles, Kelly Osbourne, Natasha Bedingfield, Miranda Lambert, Christina Perri, Hayden Panettiere, the women of NBC’s Today show and Katharine McPhee. Colbie says, “I know a lot of them were like, ‘My skin’s not doing great right now. Can I wait a couple of days until it’s better?’ Or, ‘I’m still going to wear a little bit of makeup.’ For most of them, it took them some days or weeks to send the picture.”
When it came time to taking for her own pic to give up for the lyric video, she too said it was pretty difficult to do. She ended up going with no makeup and says, “OK, here we go. Flaws, blemishes, they’re all going to show right now!’ So I think everyone has to take a breather and just accept it and embrace it.”
Check out the lyric video for “Try” below and you can pick up a copy of her ep album Gypsy Heart Side A and a full length album called Gypsy Heart is coming later this summer.
