Lately, it seems like beauty bloggers are sick and tired of constantly being ripped apart in social media comments. First, YouTube blogger NikkieTutorials made a viral video and sparked #ThePowerOfMakeup campaign and now another beauty blogger is following in her footsteps. Em Ford of My Pale Skin shared her own video called You Look Disgusting, shutting down haters who comment on her acne-prone skin.
Em started posted videos of herself without makeup and people took that as an invitation to comment on her natural skin. In her video, she says over 100,000 people have commented on her social media pictures. Some comments read “I can’t even look at her” and “seriously…has she ever washed her face?”
She says in the video caption, “I wanted to create a film that showed how social media can set unrealistic expectations on both women and men. One challenge many face today, is that as a society, we’re so used to seeing false images of perfection, and comparing ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards that It can be hard to remember the most important thing – You ARE beautiful.”
