She was ‘ borrowing’ concealer to hide the dark circles under her eyes. They looked ugly, she thought, and they must be covered up. “ How sad is that? That I already felt so insecure and not OK with my body.” Saj, now 23, is spearheading a project she hopes will make other girls and young women feel more confident in their own skin. Officially launching in October, # BARE is an online platform that will be composed of blog entries, videos and photos, as well as the Dear Me letters, which will be penned by a cross- section of Winnipeg women to their younger selves. It can be found at www. sheisbare. com. Saj, who is also a singer/ songwriter with Rhia Rae and the Rubies, is heading into her second year of creative communications at Red River College. She wanted to do something on body image for her independent professional project, which is a diploma requirement, and shifted her focus to social media’s role in shaping beauty norms. When we talk about how the media creates, upholds and propagates mainstream western beauty standards, the conversation is often centred on traditional forms of media — particularly advertising, and the ways in which the beauty and diet industries profit off the very insecurities they help create. But social media also plays an increasing role in both reinforcing beauty ideals and dismantling them. My junior high beauty bible was a dog- eared copy of the September 1997 issue of Seventeen ; this generation has Instagram. Young women and girls are effectively able to bypass the editorial gatekeepers peddling clothes they can’t afford, modelled by people they will never look like, and instead get ideas from each other. They have easy access to progressive beauty and body positivity blogs, as well as images of women of all colours and sizes. Still, Instagram feeds can be just as curatorial and aspirational as any fashion glossy. Fitspo and thinspo — images of very fit or very thin women with “ inspirational” phrases such as “ What’s your excuse?” written underneath them — do as much damage as any ad campaign. And with social media comes unrelenting cruelty from anonymous strangers. When beauty blogger and former model Em Ford, who struggles with acne, started posting photos of her makeup- free face, she had more than 100,000 people drop by to casually let her know she was gross — and pretty much every other synonym for gross. When she posted photos of herself in a full face of makeup, the adjectives changed — beautiful, perfect, etc. — but it wasn’t long before people started accusing her of “ misleading the public” or “ false advertising.” She documented her treatment in a video called You Look Disgusting , which has been viewed more than 15 million times since it was released in July. No wonder so many women won’t leave the house without “ putting on their face.” Or add a filter to it later. Saj has been on the receiving end of real- life comments about her appearance. Makeup is not part of her everyday routine, and she recalls unsolicited comments she received about her fair skin while working at a grocery store in Stonewall. Greatest hits include “ You look really tired today” or “ You look like you’re not feeling well.” One woman went so far as to ask her if her was terminally ill. While a large focus of # BARE is about feeling good about presenting one’s bare face to the world — free of makeup and/ or Instagram filters — Saj is careful to note it’s not meant to be an anti- makeup project. “ That’s not what I’m trying to impose at all,” she says. “ I love makeup. It’s more about feeling like you have to wear makeup.” Indeed, makeup can feel more like a requirement and less like a choice, especially when makeup is used as, in Saj’s case, an indicator of health or, as a much- publicized 2011 study suggested, an indicator of competence at work. It’s tough not to internalize the message you look ill, or incompetent, or gross if you’re not wearing the right shade of blush. That there is something wrong with you if you don’t adhere to a certain cultural standard. That you aren’t enough. Saj hopes # BARE will inspire young women by showing them images of confident women at home in their bodies. It’s about more than feeling beautiful. It’s about feeling like you are enough. jen. zoratti@ freepress. mb. ca Twitter: @ JenZoratti Celebrating 30 years of inspiring families and communities to grow together through the joy of learning.
