In the promo for Caitlyn Jenner’s new E! series titled ‘I Am Cait’, the reality show that will document Caitlyn’s new life as a transgender woman, we see her put on makeup and reveal her thoughts about what it means to look like a woman. Looking one’s best isn’t so easy when the whole world is watching, as Caitlyn has found out!
Caitlyn Jenner, 65, already looks like a pro at glamming herself up, as we can see in the new promo as she applies her own makeup perfectly. However, the stress to look beautiful is something that almost every woman experiences, and Caitlyn is now subject to that! She may feel relieved to have left behind her old, secretive life, but the grass isn’t always greener: with a new identity comes freedom, but also responsibility and external pressure. See what Caitlyn has to say on the matter!
In the first promo for the I Am Cait docu-series, we witness Caitlyn applying her own face powder and lip gloss as she gets ready for the day. Her technique is pretty expert already — we’re pretty jealous of her awesome makeup skills! — but it’s not all sunshine and daisies in Caitlyn’s sparkling new world. “You start learning the pressure women are under all the time about their appearance,” Caitlyn admits in the promo. “I never had it until a couple weeks ago.” Only time will tell how Caitlyn deals with that stress. It’s a new experience for everyone involved!
Either way, Caitlyn is now thrilled that she can look however she wants, and not have to hide her true self from the paparazzi. “I’m just going to go live life. I’m going to go enjoy life. I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul,” she announces in the promo. “[Up] to this point I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear, you know, sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap, and I didn’t want them to see if my fingernails were polished or, you know, on and on and on. It was just hell.” So inspiring!
Later in the one-minute clip, Caitlyn gushes over the scenery as she drives outside for the first time as a woman. “It’s so bright out there! Look at that!” she says excitedly. “Isn’t that great, that maybe someday you’ll be normal and just blend into society? Put it this way — I’m the new normal.” Good for you, Cait! We can’t wait to see where your new journey takes you. If you’re dying to see more, check out the entire preview above!
