Colbie Caillat has released a new music video, and in it, she takes it all off. Her makeup, that is.

She starts the video for "Try" all done up, and by the end, she's taken off her hair extensions, fake lashes, and makeup.

Other women in the video do the same, including a woman who takes her wig off, revealing she has no hair.

This all happens while she sings her song about girls being themselves, and not trying to impress everyone else and fit in.

"You don't have to try so hard," sings Caillat. "You don't have to change a single thing."

Caillat told Elle Magazine the song was inspired by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. She went into the recording studio with him, and she started talking about the pressure she gets to be someone she's not, in her image and her music. So he told her to stop that, and the song was born.

She also told Elle that they shot the music video backwards, starting with no makeup, and adding more as the shooting went on.

"It also felt really cool to be on camera with zero on," Caillat told Elle. "And then when it got to the full hair and makeup, I actually felt gross. I was just so caked on."
