  • Power and Beauty: You Can Have It All (Video)

    “Pretty Powerful symbolizes my belief that all women possess natural beauty, and with the right tools, are empowered to a higher level of pretty… Pretty Powerful, Pretty Amazing, Pretty Gorgeous, etc. But, between long hours at the office, family responsibilities, and endless to-do lists, it’s not feasible for women to spend hours in front of the mirror trying to look perfect. But it’s very real to want to look and feel pretty despite the daily pressures of life.”

    If you had the chance to select a statement and characteristics that would define your life – would it be power or beauty — really, which one would you choose?

    As a man, I try not to discern the complexities of women, in terms of womanhood, professional life – ambition, and doing this all, while guiding successful families: I am sensitive and sympathetic to the challenges women face, yet wise to enough to know, what I don’t know.

    Bobbi Brown cosmetics might be doing their part to identify and promote the multidimensional aspects of women, with their new Pretty Powerful campaign. In the Stylist.com article, Being Pretty Powerful Is Much Bigger Than Beauty, it illustrates the need for  women to considered and appreciated more than for only their physical beauty.

    The article states, “Pretty Powerful symbolizes my belief that all women possess natural beauty, and with the right tools, are empowered to a higher level of pretty… Pretty Powerful, Pretty Amazing, Pretty Gorgeous, etc. But, between long hours at the office, family responsibilities, and endless to-do lists, it’s not feasible for women to spend hours in front of the mirror trying to look perfect. But it’s very real to want to look and feel pretty despite the daily pressures of life.”

    Having a soon-to-be thirteen year-old daughter (Callie), I understand the different ways young girls are pulled away from their inner selves, to concentrate on cosmetics — aesthetics exclusively. I always appreciate women that are independent, strong, sensitive, humorous, compassionate and wise — women that because they feel valuable — feel beautiful, not the other way around.

    Pretty Powerful, might go a long way in changing, not only how women see themselves, but more importantly – how they value themselves.

    Good luck.
