Wearing false eyelashes, blond hair extensions and a lot of makeup are all a part of Colby Callait’s routine. Then, when she steps into a studio, her other imperfections (wrinkles and the like) magically disappear from her photos thanks to Photoshop. You’d think that’s kind of cool, but the Grammy Award winning singer says that’s far from it. In fact, she’s sick and tired of always trying so hard and she wants you to take a stand with her.
In the new music video for her song aptly named “Try,” Callait goes through the process of stripping off the lashes, hair extensions and makeup. That’s a brave thing to do, considering the industry she works in. She also recruited other everyday women to do the same in her video.
Don’t be afraid to let your hair down or wear it in a messy bun. Forget about the pressures society puts on you. Fall in love with yourself first. That’s the message she’s trying to send.
We don’t think there’s anything wrong with getting dressed up. Put those false eyelashes on, girl. Just remember that underneath all of that, you’re still great the way you are.
