#GirlYouDontNeedMakeup. In a world where beauty is predefined of having the perfect body, high cheekbones and where makeup is power. For me personally, true beauty is an adventure of finding oneself and once it is found, you have to accept it and be true to who you are. That is why I loved how Amy Schumer went against the tide and circumstance just to get her message across a prejudiced and stereotypical society.
Her latest spoof in Inside Amy Schumer, they created a video parody of One Direction’s “Girl, You Don’t need Makeup” went viral over the last week. Taking this challenge to Twitter and it became viral to women.
The reason why the music video became viral is because of its lyrics. It started off with:
“Girl, you don’t need no makeup, you don’t need no blush, because you’ve got that inner natural glow”
But as soon as the guys actually see what makeup-free Amy looks like they sang:
“Girl, you’ll be the hottest girl in the nation, with just a touch of foundation/Girl, I can’t be seen with the ghost from ‘The Ring'” and “Girl, you’re perfect when you wake up, you don’t need any makeup/Just don’t go out like that, okay?”
The irony of the world, stating that it is okay not to wear makeup, but regrets by seeing the real and natural look of a person after they removed their makeup. A spot-on to our stereotypical society.
The message of Amy Schumer became a door for ladies to accept who they are. Yes, we may need a little makeup, but it doesn’t mean that being make-up free makes us some kind of a monster. As the lovely Amy tweeted: “We are all different and beautiful. Let’s not waste time stressing about looks.” Amy Schumer just gave women a break who cannot pose a selfie without makeup on. As I’ve said “true beauty” starts with being honest with ourselves thus our beauty. Stay pretty and true to yourselves bloggers and readers.
