Beyond our flaws

Beyond our flaws"

A man's face is his autobiography. A woman's face is her work of fiction. ~Oscar Wilde

It's honestly a little comforting to know that ,  even the biggest Music Diva of our time wakes up every morning like me or any other regular woman .......with blemishes , grey hair and skin acne.

The internet went totally  nuts  on Wednesday the 18 th of febuary 2015 when fansite The Beyoncé World leaked 224 apparently unretouched photos from the popular music diva "Beyoncé" "s commercial and print shoots for L'Oréal's 2013 Feria and Infallible campaign.

The photos show the diva in striking eye and lip makeup, but with laugh lines, skin imperfections and a few facial hairs ........ technically with few skin flaws which almost every woman her age has . She was also few strokes away from the polished Beyoncé that appears in the final campaigns or maybe those were her pre - photoshopped pictures.

The Beyoncé World deleted the photos soon after, in response to a massive backlash from the diva’s fans, known collectively as "The Beyhive".
I don't know why these fans are so upset on the fact that the world can see that Beyoncé has a bit of an uneven complexion???

People of the world she is a real woman , a real working woman  who has a thriving career , mother to daughter Blue Ivy , loving wife, fashion representative and more than that a woman whose skin is little imperfect !
I believe that women come in all shapes and sizes.
And I don't know who are the Hypocrates the celebrities hiding the flaws from their fans or us the regular people posting pics of " their more than perfect lives " on social media.

Is life just a pictorial contest ?
