Three months ago, I began posting images of myself without makeup on social media. The following film contains real comments that were left on images of my face.
** Click Show More**

Over the past few months, I’ve received thousands of messages from people all over the world who suffer or have suffered from acne, an insecurity or self confidence issues.

I wanted to create a film that showed how social media can set unrealistic expectations on both women and men. One challenge many face today, is that as a society, we’re so used to seeing false images of perfection, and comparing ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards that It can be hard to remember the most important thing – You ARE beautiful.

You are beautiful – no matter how flawed you feel, no matter how upset you may about the way you look or how hard you find it to make friends, or be confident. Believe in yourself, and never let anyone tell you’re not beautiful – not even yourself.

Everyone is PERFECT JUST THE WAY THEY ARE…STOP BULLYING..Hey Bullies have you ever thought that making other people's life a miserable story is bad for everyone?

    the thing is using that make up from a young age is what cause ur face to look like shit. It clogs up the pores in ur face causing pimples which cause more make up ie a cycle and repeat issue. keeping a clean face work wonders.

    A women's worth or her value to herself or others is not defined by her looks. We need to teach our girls that instead of the bullcrap society want us to believe. it's sad how many ads show us that we are not good enough but these are only Photoshoped images. Learn to love yourself…which takes A lot of time and patience.

    I never tell someone "You LOOK beautiful or handsome." I say "You ARE beautiful or handsome," because beauty isn't how you look, it's who you are

    Heartbreaking that people are so superficial and ruthless. This brought tears to my eyes. My best friend is the most generous, caring, thoughtful and beautiful person I have ever met, and she has a rare disorder called Behcet's. She gets painful ulcers in her mouth and on her skin, has to worry about her brain and heart being affected and losing her eyesight. Going just to the grocery store with her children is difficult she has had people comment loudly to their own children about her face being the reason to not do Meth. I cannot imagine what she has to endure, and the strength she has to still smile and joke around about her issues and still love life is what makes her beautiful.

    Love this, girls always say that we don't wear makeup for other people and it's sometimes true. We wear it for ourselves to feel good, to hide imperfections but people still bully us. You look awesome either way, makeup or no makeup YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!
