Get real and not just ready––Wonder’s new YouTube beauty series leaves more room for real talk
If you’ve grown a little skeptical about beauty content over the years, that’s a fair feeling. It could just as well be that you’ve become more mindful about your media consumption; but either way, it pays to abide by the rule of thumb. Take everything you see on the internet with a grain of salt.
With beauty (and an industry with no problem playing up its smoke and mirrors), this rule especially applies. It often needs to be rebroadcasted time and again, too.
In our experience, what put things into perspective is how easy it is to buy into a new endorsement by a bankable personality. The tendency is we do not instinctively factor in other things such as likely regular beauty treatments or access to a nutritionist or an even more elaborate beauty routine behind the scenes. Again, smoke and mirrors. And it’s here––between things that are not disclosed and beauty philosophies that are oversimplified, unintentionally or otherwise––where we want to steer the conversation in another direction.
This is Get Real With Me, a spin on the get-ready-with-me format that makes more room for real talk about skin issues, beauty insecurities and makeup mistakes among other things. Hang back for skincare routines and makeup tutorials, sure, but also expect honest, candid takes on the not-one-size-fits-all beauty journey.
