Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Unfortunately, body shaming is still prevalent in our society. We live in a world that determines your worth based on your size and the way you look. Plus size women and men are shamed for their looks on the daily. In addition, social media has magnified how much hate the world has for people who are not thin. If you’re not the conventional beauty standard, people will call you ugly. Fortunately, we do have people in this world who have started movements to encourage more diversity in the images that we see
At the end of 2017 one beauty vlogger decided that she wasn’t going to take the hateful comments she was receiving about her looks. Beauty guru Nabela Noor decided to shut down her body shaming haters with a heartfelt makeup tutorial.
On her Instagram page of over 500K followers, the beauty guru shared this with her followers, “In 2017 I was called a pig, fat, ugly, a monster. I was told I should kill myself because of how I look.” She goes on to write, “The girl I see in the mirror is beautiful with and without makeup, whether I am a size 6 or a size 16.”
As a blogger who writes about plus size fashion and shares photos of my plus size body, I can assure you that body shaming is real. People who don’t know you will tell you that you’re too fat and unhealthy. They act like they’re your personal physician.
As a dark skinned woman, I’ve been told that I’m too dark or black to wear bright colors. I’m ugly just because I am dark skinned. People are so quick to tear you down and slow to build you up. That’s why its so important to know your self worth and block out the negativity.
I encourage all of you who are reading this to watch Nabela Noor’s video below. She uses her makeup skills to erase the negativity and created something beautiful.
THIS IS ME 💪🏽 In 2017, I was called a pig, fat, ugly, a monster… I was told I should kill myself because of how I look. I received thousands of messages like this all year & there have been times where I let those words destroy me. But as my confidence strengthened, I became a fortress of self-love that could not be broken by the words of unhappy people. I learned quickly that happy people don’t say hurtful things. And that happiness begins with self-love. The girl I see in the mirror is beautiful with and without makeup, whether I am a size 6 or a size 16. So as 2018 begins, I’m leaving behind all of the words that once hurt me – all of the doubt that once controlled me. No one can tell us who we are. We are glorious. We are beautiful. We are worthy. This video is a small victory in my self-love revolution & I can’t wait to continue the fight in 2018. I am not the things they say I am. I will never be reduced to their words. I am brave, I am strong, I am who I’m meant to be. This is me. 💖 P R O D U C T S // @farsalicare unicorn essence @beautyblender @maybelline master camo color correcting pen @urbandecaycosmetics brow box, naked skin concealer, blush in “video” @jouercosmetics lipliner tawny rose @doseofcolors liquid lip in truffle @toofaced chocolate gold palette, born this way concealer & peel off glitter liner @maccosmetics @patrickstarrr #macpatrickstarrr setting powder @kkwbeauty contour kit @hudabeauty jade lashes & winter solstice palette SONG: “This is Me” Cover by @emoniwilkins & @the7thaveband.
