Flash Mob of Women with Half Made-up Faces Collects 13,000 Photos
Video blogger Niikie de Jager starts a flash mob to explain that there is no shame in using make up.
After the creator of a YouTube beauty account, NikkieTutorials, Nikkie de Jager published a video called The Power of Makeup, which shows how make up can change women’s appearance, girls from all over the world started posting photos with makeup and no makeup. Using the hashtag #ThePowerOfMakeup they post their half made-up selfies.
Flash mob started one and half months ago and still running. Girls posted to Instagram more than 13,000 images and video that launched the campaign has more than 17 million views.
Inspired by @nikkietutorials.. posting this picture to shut down make-up shamers with #thepowerofmakeup .. I don't wear make up on a daily basis, but I do when there are big occasions or when I'm cosplaying.. Therefore, I get a lot of comments when I do indeed put on make up.. It's either "you look so much better with/without make up on", "who are you trying to impress", "so fake", "she must hate herself to rely on so much make up", "this is why I don't trust girls" or "such an attention seeker".. I wear make up to express, not to impress.. I'm doing it for myself and not for pleasing anyone else.. I know I look different and I'm proud that I do as its a skill that I've tried achieving through my years of cosplaying.. The important thing is, with or without make up, we are beautiful #trending #stopmakeupshaming #nofilter
I took this a long time ago (made apparent by the hair), but now there's a place for it! #thepowerofmakeup As a person, I don't wear it often but as a makeup artist I'm obviously all about it! Makeup is a beautiful art and a fantastic form of expression (for both men and women!). You do you, ladies and gents! #makeup #makeupartistpittsburgh #mua #browgamestrong #wingedliner
I find this acceptance movement to be #amazing. #Love yourself no matter what others say. If #makeup makes you feel good wear it. Do what makes you #happy. #makeupshaming #beautyisbeautiful #acceptance #urbandecay #curlyhair #loveyourself #thepowerofmakeup #thepowerofmakeupandhair #redefineperfect #redefinebeauty #happinessisbeautiful
Inspired by @nikkietutorials' Power of Makeup video that's gone viral (if you haven't already seen it, you should check it out), #AU #beautyvlogger and IT Girl @stephanielangemakeup created her own #Makeup #Transformation video using #Itcosmetics . We love the message these ladies are spreading: Makeup is an empowering form of #expression and an #art; at the end of the day, if it makes you more confident and happy, that is ALL that matters! #regram #beauty #empowerwomen #naturalbeauty #embraceit #thepowerofmakeup #beautifulbeforeANDafter
