If you ever needed proof just how big a difference Photoshop, hair extensions and makeup can make, Colbie Caillat is about to show you!

The singer has taken aim at the impossible beauty standards of today in her new music video Try… and it’s an eye opener.

On Instagram Colbert revealed it’s the first music video she hasn’t had to prepare for.

“I didn’t go tanning, I didn’t diet, I didn’t heavily workout, I didn’t get my hair done, I didn’t get my nails done, I didn’t have a stylist, I didn’t get my eyebrows tinted… it felt wonderful!”

Shot in reverse, the video shows Colbert alongside other women as they get a ‘makeunder’ – reverse Photoshopping.


Talking to Elle, Colbert says she feels a ‘major responsibility’ in how her image is portrayed to fans.

“When I see gorgeous models and singers and they look perfect on their album covers, it makes me want to look like that, too, and it makes me feel like if I don’t Photoshop my skin on my album cover, I’m the one who’s going to look a little off and everyone else is going to look perfect.”

“On one of my album covers, my arm was shaved down and it made me look very skinny.  I think that gives a false reality.”

While we don’t know about you, we absolutely love Colbert’s make-up free look!
