There have been TONS of videos and articles out lately about the power of makeup. For instance, I’m SURE you have run across at least one of the reposts on Facebook of dramatic makeup transformations, with guys acting like makeup has somehow deceived them…I mean really fellas, do you REALLY think we wake up with smokey eye?

Anywho, in light of all that, there’s been a wave of “makeup shaming” of sorts…but one woman, a YouTuber named Nikkie, wants to fire back at the critics with a dramatic makeup video of her own. She argues that it doesn’t matter whether you choose to wear it or not. What is most important is accepting others, no matter how they choose to express themselves.

She wrote:

“I’ve been noticing a lot lately that girls have been almost ashamed to say that they love makeup, ‘cause nowadays, if you say that you love makeup, you either do it because you want to look good for boys, you do it because you’re insecure, or you do it because you don’t love yourself…And that, guys, is the power of makeup… I just want people to know that makeup is fun and there are no rules to makeup.”
