I Went In To Buy Some Eyeliner And Came Out With 2 Tickets To The Gun Show

I love this new ad for MAC Cosmetics. Unlike most ads that feature waif-like models airbrushed to absolute thinness, this ad, airbrushed though it may be, celebrates a different type of strong female body. Women who are muscular instead of "toned," especially female body builders, are often mocked or rejected for what are seen as more "masculine" physical traits, but this ad combines strength and femininity in a way that I find incredibly refreshing.
