A Step-by-Step Feminist Makeup Tutorial
Who said makeup isn't empowering?
Ever wonder what feminist leaders are thinking while they go about their beauty routine? YouTube vlogger tadelesmith created this brilliant parody of a complete makeup tutorial from a feminist's POV.
The only thing more compelling than the gorgeous look she creates -- a fresh-faced cat eye paired with a bold red lip -- is the fact that she pulls it off while incorporating feminist language that references the most compelling challenges facing women. Example? When applying a light foundation, she says to "make sure you give every part of your face a fair and equal amount of representation, unlike the government and prime time network television." She also mentions the importance of setting your "foundation with the powder of the ashes of Susan B. Anthony." Intrigued yet? Check out the video to see how to get a stunning makeup look -- and let us know if you feel just as beautiful (and downright powerful) afterwards.
