What sort of sap doesn't know by now that picture-perfect beauty is all done with smoke and mirrors anyway?
It took a long while for me to know that I'm beautiful. I remember going through this phase when I was younger of wanting to pass by mirrors and not look at them. That was so ridiculous. I've learned now that beauty starts from within.
