We’re Not Ugly, Just Broke

When flicking through the glossy pages of a fashion magazine, do you ever stop to look upon the A-listers? You wonder how different life would be if you looked this perfect.


If you’re feeling like the reincarnation of Medusa, it doesn’t matter how much makeup you put on. You can put lipstick on a pig, but at the end of the day, it’s still a pig, so you take a leaf out of Quasimodo’s book and hide up in your bell tower.

But before you plan on RSVPing to your own pity party, put down the spoon and cancel a night in with the boys Ben and Jerry. It turns out genes don’t play as big a role as you might think.

Celebrities before they were famous give us all hope. It seems anyone can transform from ugly duckling to beautiful swan.


Whoever said money doesn’t buy happiness didn’t know to invest in a good stylist, makeup artist, and plastic surgeon.
