Beauty campaigns are a dime a dozen, but one 2019 campaign is going viral on social for going against the grain and marking a clear distinction between itself and the norm.
Why? Because it features real women (hurrah!) who were chosen for their deeper story, NOT their looks.
Multiple videos for a campaign for Dove are making noise on social, short snippets and clips from a larger campaign have been shared from a concept where the brand did not meet the women pre-shoot. The fearless ladies were simply chosen based on the story they were willing to share, a point which highlights the purpose of the campaign; real beauty runs deeper and it doesn’t stop at the surface.
Women faced their fears, shared their stories and took part in this empowering campaign
“5 years ago, I had a transplant. I was nervous about showing my scars, but it was empowering.” – Simone
The women documented their journey as part of the process
It’s the consistent reinforcement of this message that will help raise self-esteem
