Sadie Robertson recently blasted the modeling industry on her Instagram.

She reveals her frustration with how the modeling industry treats models. And she also talked about how she dealt with it.

 

A few months ago, she did a photoshoot that she thought would be a no-makeup, natural shoot. When she got there, the director took a quick look at her and was not happy.

“Nope, this girl does not have the face to pull off a no makeup shoot,” he said.

Sadie explains what happened next.

“So they proceeded to spend around 2 hours making it look as though I had no makeup on,” she writes. “Let’s be real I did NOT wake up like that.”

She then revealed that they pinched her stomach to make sure she knew what to get rid of. She’s been told she should lose 10 pounds to look like an actual model. 

Fortunately, she has a good perspective on all of this.

“Yet all the while I just smile, laugh, eat and dance my way through the shoots,” she says. “These things at one point in my life would of really hurt me, but now I smile because I know my identity does not lie in my looks, my pictures, people’s comments or my Instagram.

“My identity lies within the hands of my God who I believe created me to be fearfully and wonderfully made.”

She says everyone has the face to do a no-makeup photoshoot.

“The makeup is the extra,” she says. “It’s the fun, but when it becomes your everything that’s when you began to loose everything about what makes you … YOU.”

What a mature way to look at being treated like that.

a few months ago I showed up for a photoshoot that I had thought was going to be a natural no makeup photoshoot… the director of the shoot took a quick look at me and said "nope this girl does not have the face to pull off a no makeup shoot" so they proceeded to spend around 2 hours making it look as though I had no makeup on. Let's be real I did NOT wake up like that. I have never thought of myself as a model, but getting to dip my toes a little in this industry I've heard shocking things, had my stomach "fat" pinched to make sure I knew which part I needed to get rid of. I've been told if I would loose 10 pounds then I may look like an actual model, yet all the while I just smile, laugh, eat and dance my way through the shoots. These things at one point in my life would of really hurt me, but now I smile because I know my identity does not lie in my looks, my pictures, people's comments or my Instagram. My identity lies within the hands of my God who I believe created me to be fearfully and wonderfully made. I believe EVERYONE has the face to pull off a "no makeup shoot" because that is YOUR FACE. The makeup is the extra. It's the fun, but when it becomes your everything that's when you began to loose everything about what makes you… YOU. My friend and I went out at sunrise yesterday to remind ourselves of real beauty and went without makeup. The beauty surrounded us, and was flowing from within into our conversations. Pursue the essence of beauty within you today, and ask yourself where your identity lies ❤️
