Zendaya’s powerful words about makeup and beauty

I for one am sick of slideshows of celebrities “caught” without makeup. Why is it such shock to the society to see a woman how she naturally looks?

Zendaya is one celebrity who has had enough. She posted a video on Facebook yesterday with some inspiring words that I’m tempted to print out and tape on my mirror: “It should not be a phenomenon if she decides to or not to wear makeup,” Zendaya says. “If you want to beat that face down, then beat it down! If you want to go natural, then go natural!”

I couldn’t have said it better myself. While the intention may be good in praising women with bare faces, that just switches from shaming women without makeup to shaming those who do choose to wear it. In reality, the only person who it should concern if you wear makeup is… well, you.
