Social media is changing - there are so many incredible positive social movements. But sadly, an undercurrent of judgement, trolling and discrimination still exists. Although makeup should allow you to experiment and showcase your art, people within the beauty community are being judged for their style, talent and appearance and here at GLAMOUR UK, we’re taking a stand.
Inspired by Nabela Noor's viral video, #BlendOutBullying involves highlighting the worst thing anyone’s ever said to you online and owning it by putting those words on your face and blending them into a gorgeous makeup look. Whether you use the words as contour, write a word on your lip and blend it in, or use concealer to cover up ink, it's all about taking back the power from the bullies and creating an inspiring video to encourage others to do the same. How can you get involved?
1. Write it. 2. Blend it. 3 Post it and pass it on. 4. Join the conversation.
There are many organisations that help provide support and advice to people struggling with online bullying, but one making waves at the moment is Anti-Bullying Pro, from the charity The Diana Award, who we’re partnering with for this campaign.
Keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks for GLAMOUR articles featuring all your amazing videos and selfies, a whole host of emotional real-life stories and our awesome live panel. Don't forget to pick up your copy of the new GLAMOUR AW18 for the full story and all the details you need to get involved.
