There’s nothing ideal about being real
So many flaws to cover and conceal
Perfect Face Blemish Free
Thanks to my Clinque
Mac smolder eyeliner,
Make up Forever
Fake Lashes frame these eyes
Secretly I hide behind.
Urban decay eye shadow in creep
Never let my bronzer leak.
Crease, brows, highlights it
Boost, Primp, Tweeze
Paycheck every month is in
Sephora Amusement Park
Contour and define
Erase those ugly lines
Fake tan, Fake Lashes, Fake Nails
Fake is what it takes.
Push up bra
Lip gloss flavors
Strawberry cream, Vanilla Hazelnut
Mac Extraordinaire.
Dye my hair every week.
Hair Spray it every 30
Paul Mitchell Hair Religion
in my purse is every pill.

Tabloid perfect
Magazine, Secret diets, Sex tips
Chanel, Dior,
Perfect Models
Wash down the bottle
Foundation is my Bible
Every Scent Every mood
Purse I carry 5.
Shopping is how I cope
Always seems to give me hope
Fake beauty lives online
Facebook on my mind.
Fake book creates my perfect life
Lipstick secrets, Pedicures Manicures
I see you stare.
Is it too much to wear?
Silently you hate all that you create.
But I can see through the pills that you take that your really real.
You’re not really fake.


The author's comments:
I was inspired by teenage girls and the effect that the Media has on them to be perfect. However, its not always about being "fake". However, it almost always comes from a deeper level. They could be insecure or depressed and have this need to look ideal to be happy.
