Makeup Shaming: Stop Telling Women What They Can & Can't Do (VIDEO)

Nikkie TutorialsWhether you want to hide some dark, under-eye circles or highlight your best features, makeup can completely save the day -- and your look! Hair and makeup vlogger Nikki, of Nikki Tutorials, recently took aim at those who've been shaming makeup-enthusiasts by saying they're just using it because "they want to look good for boys" or because they're insecure. The beauty maven illustrates the "power of makeup" in a six-minute video that may just completely change the way you think about cosmetics!


Check out her amazing right-before-your-eyes transformation: 

How's that for proving your point!?! Nikki explains why she felt compelled to post this metamorphosis rather than her regular tips and tricks: 

I feel like lately makeup shaming has become a thing. It's as if putting makeup on to have fun is a shame. Therefore, I thought it would be cool to show you the power of makeup. A transformation. Because makeup... is FUN!

While it seems like everyone is being "shamed" for something these days, makeup-shaming is just super ridiculous! If you're doing something that you enjoy and makes you feel good about yourself and you're not hurting anyone else, whose business is it anyway?

Hey, if red lipstick helps you power through a workout, why not, right? And if some foundation and mascara give you the confidence you need wherever your life takes you, go for it! 

Maybe it's looking and feeling amazing thanks to a little blush and kick-ass concealer that will ultimately give us the strength to stand up to these makeup-shamers. Ha!
