You just can’t win, as this video shows.
There was one comment that was remarkably clueless (well, actually, lots of them, but I wasn’t going to go digging through youtube comments very deeply):
I don’t understand the motive of this video. Is it supposed to show makeup in a positive or negative light? I’d assume the latter, but the woman’s whole channel is about makeup tutorials so that doesn’t really make sense. Honestly, I agree that makeup is completely unnecessary. It’s time consuming, expensive, and ultimately pointless. Beauty is completely subjective, but beauty is never only skin-deep, and makeup is. I try my absolute hardest to not judge people by their physical appearance, as it is often not even controllable and in my opinion says the least about a person. If this video’s objective is to say that makeup is unnecessary (which I think it is) and anyone and everyone is beautiful to someone, then would the uploader continue to wear makeup and make makeup tutorials? That’s a bit ironic if so.
Pay attention to the video. If you don’t use makeup, you’re ugly; if you do, some wanker will come along to tell you that makeup is
time consuming, expensive, and ultimately pointless. Both sides are judging women on their appearance, and this is done to a degree that men never experience.
Maybe you should try not telling people how they should try to look, whether it’s to wear more makeup or to wear less?
