Make Up Shaming - One Vlogger's Beautiful Response

The bare face movement is really picking up momentum lately. Lots of women are embracing their natural faces, and forgoing concealers and bronzers to enhance what they're born with. But on the opposite end of the spectrum, women who find creativity and artistry in the application of beauty products are being shamed. Suddenly women who say "f**k it!" to makeup are brave, and cosmetic lovers are cowardly, insecure or fake. It's funny how no matter what face you wear out in the world, someone will find a way to bring you down about it. Youtuber NikkieTutorials received 11 million views in a month for her take on the situation. "I wear makeup because it is FUN. It is a way for me to put my mind at rest and let my creativity flow,” professional make up artist and vlog-star Nikki explains in the clip. “Nowadays when you say 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 . . . I feel like in a way lately it’s almost a crime to love doing your makeup.” she says. Nikki made a point of doing half of her face in stunning makeup, and leaving the other half purely natural. The stunt reveals the beauty in her on both sides, something every woman, and every person, should embrace. Check out Nikki's amazing video and share you thoughts with us! Do you love makeup, love going au natural or enjoy both?
