Dove’s Sketch Artist Experiment Will Blow Your Mind

Real Beauty Sketches

How would you describe your face? That’s the premise of a new video from Dove, which features a number of different women explaining their facial attributes to a forensic sketch artist who can’t see them.

The women tend to focus on what would be considered negative characteristics. So when the sketches are done, they don’t come out looking like the best versions of themselves.

But here’s the catch — the sketch artist also made a second drawing, which is based on the way somebody the women had just met had explained their faces to him. Those drawings looked quite different, and much more conventionally attractive.

Dove has long centered their ad campaign on having a positive body image, and this experiment fits right into that. While you might be focusing on what you think is a crooked nose or a too big chin when you look in the mirror, that’s actually not the way the world is seeing you. See the video evidence of this amazing phenomenon below.
