Teen Posts Half-Makeup Selfies, And Gets Trolled For A Disturbing Reason.
In a study from 2010, researchers found that over 50 percent of schoolgirls in England and Wales were bullied for their appearance. While some students are able to stand up to their bullies or ignore them, not everyone can and not everyone should. The bullying doesn't end at school either, it happens online too.
Maisie Beech, a self-taught makeup artist from Wales, was met with harsh criticism after posting selfies on social media. On her Instagram bio, she describes herself as "just a pale girl with no eyebrows giving you the 411 on how to slay on a budget."
Her account started to garner a lot of attention when she was just 19 years old, mostly for her half-makeup selfies. On one side, her makeup was fully done while the other was left bare, showing a dramatic difference.
Maisie Beech is a young woman who loves to put on makeup.
Beech is from Flemington, Wales, and she's been able to learn about cosmetics through tutorials on YouTube.
Her account began to receive a lot of traffic when she posted a half makeup selfie.
As shown here, one side of her face is fully done up while the other remains natural. She did this because she wanted to show that she accepted herself both ways.
Beech received some positive feedback for her work.
Some girls praised her for her makeup skills. Kim Kardashian's makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic even posted one of the photos to his Instagram account.
Most viewers, however, replied with rude comments.
Some commenters have said things like, "This is why I have commitment issues" or "Take her swimming on a first date." Others have called her outright "disgusting" and "ugly."
There were even some that got violent in their language. One man wrote that he would "punch her in the face" if he had to wake up next to her.
Ironically, those who came to her defense were equally rude.
A few people called out others for their rudeness saying that they should stop attacking her because she has albinism, cancer, or alopecia (baldness) — none of which are true.
