“Who Says” by Selena Gomez
If you’re feeling down, this song will cheer you up. “I’m no beauty queen/I’m just beautiful me.” Right on, Selena!
“What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction
These Brit boys know what’s what: you shouldn’t feel insecure.
“Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars
Maybe you like to wear makeup, but Bruno reminds you that you don’t need makeup. Why? Because you’re perfect! Just the way you are! Duh!
“Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera
Um, this is THE classic “you are beautiful so don’t ever forget it” song–so don’t.
“Hey You” by Miranda Cosgrove
This is an ode to your BFF who doesn’t know how amazing she is, even when she sees the beauty and goodness in everyone else around her. Could Miranda actually be singing about you?
“Perfect” by P!nk
Despite mistakes you’ve made, you’re nothing less than perfect as a YOU. Sounds cheesy? Maybe it is, but that doesn’t make it bunk!
“Beautiful Soul” by Jesse McCartney
People say beauty is only skin-deep, but that’s tough to internalize when it seems like society’s saying you’re not pretty and that being externally “pretty” is the most important thing in the world. Guess what? We need to redefine beauty. If you have a beautiful soul, you are beautiful!
“Who You Are” by Jessie J
We’re not gonna lie. It can be really, really hard to feel good about yourself. When you feel hopeless and lost and broken, it is even more difficult–but know that’s what makes you who you are.
“Pretty Girl Rock” by Keri Hilson
Take it from self-esteem queen Lady Gaga, sometimes you need to just dance. Try this song, and don’t hate us ‘cause we’re beautiful!
“Firework” by Katy Perry
Let’s end this playlist on a high note. You are worthy, you are worth it, and you shouldn’t let anyone make you feel like crap. Get it? Got it? Good!
