People are using makeup to pay tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting in this beautiful way
In the wake of the tragedy this weekend, many people have expressed their support to the victims and survivors of the shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando. Support comes in many forms — Harry Potter fans raising their wands outside of Hogwarts in Orlando, heartfelt vigils for the victims, tattoos to show solidarity, LGBTQ+ self-love hashtags on Twitter, and more. Now, people are using social media in another beautiful way to show their support, quite literally, on their faces.
Vicki, of @athousandfacesmakeup, told Mic, “I would hope that those suffering in Orlando can see from this piece that the heart placed on my lips represents a love from a distance that I can show through a meaningful image.”
Here are some more images that have come from this social media movement:
While some people are quick to put down selfies and social media as a way to show support, they can be powerful tools in helping create positive change. These photos are beautiful, and they’re a wonderful way to show support for the victims and for members of the LGBTQ+ community. Plus, we could all use a little more positivity on our timeline these days — so keep them coming.
