Le donne cercano sempre di apparire al meglio, sempre perfette, sempre truccate, la bellezza naturale è difficile da trovare, da accettare.

bellezza naturale
Colbie Caillat

“Truccati, fatti le unghie, arricciati i capelli, corri per un miglio, diventa magra cosi gli piacerai, gli piaci? “

Così comincia la canzone Try” di Colbie Caillat, un’artista statunitense che con questo video vuole sfatare il mito della bellezza ad ogni costo, della bellezza stereotipata, della bellezza da copertina, e vuole rilanciare la bellezza naturale come punto di partenza e punto di arrivo.

Ha superato i 15milioni di visualizzazioni su YouTube il suo video, un video che mostra questa “bellezza” da copertina che pian piano si “smonta”, sparisce il trucco, spariscono le extension, sparisce tutto quello che è finto, per rivelare delle splendide donne, di tutte le età, così come sono nella realtà, una bellezza naturale, senza trucco e senza inganno.

Un ritornello intenso che spiega chiaramente che non c’è bisogno di sforzarsi, di provare così duramente ad essere qualcosa che non si è…

Bellezza naturale
Bellezza naturale

E termina così la canzone

“Struccati, appoggia la testa, prendi un respiro, guardati allo specchio: non ti piaci? Perché a me piaci!” 

Il testo della canzone, inno alla bellezza naturale

Put your make up on 
Get your nails done 
Curl your hair 
Run the extra mile 
Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you? 

Get your sexy on 
Don’t be shy, girl 
Take it off 
This is what you want, to belong, so they like you 
Do you like you? 

You don’t have to try so hard 
You don’t have to, give it all away 
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up 
You don’t have to change a single thing 

You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try 
Yooou don’t have to try 

Oooh 
Oooh 

Get your shopping on, at the mall, extra credit card 
You don’t have to choose, buy it all, so they like you 
Do they like you? 

Wait a second, 
Why, should you care, what they think of you 
When you’re all alone, by yourself, do you like you? 
Do you like you? 

You don’t have to try so hard 
You don’t have to, give it all away 
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up 
You don’t have to change a single thing 

You don’t have to try so hard 
You don’t have to bend until you break 
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up 
You don’t have to change a single thing 

You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try 
You don’t have to try 

You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try 
Yooou don’t have to try 

Noooo 
Oooh 

You don’t have to try so hard 
You don’t have to, give it all away 
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up 
You don’t have to change a single thing 

You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try, try, try, try 
You don’t have to try 

Take your make up off 
Put your head down 
Take a breath 
Look into the mirror, at yourself 
Don’t you like you? 
Cause I like you
