The #nomakeupselfie Trend Sucks — An Opinion

Something that’s been bothering me is that not only are women posting #nomakeupselfie pics without even mentioning breast cancer, let alone donating to the cause which was the true point of this campaign, but so many of the pics I’ve seen have been of themselves as children.

Woman taking a selfie, lying in bed wearing natural makeup, shows part of the reason why the #nomakeupselfie trend is flawed.

Exactly where is the self-confidence when they can’t even post current make-up free photos?

And why does it take a challenge like this to post a photo without make-up in the first place?

Why should all women be seen to need or want to wear make-up?

The basic assumptions at the core of this campaign are problematic.
