    It’s super important to come together as women, i recently took a stand in our fight against misogyny… I challenged women to take off their makeup and to either post a video or make a selfie and nominate other women in their life to do the same. For me it’s not an anti-makeup sort of thing; I love wearing makeup… It’s a way for girls to celebrate who they are and be confident and to feel beautiful. With everything going on right now, there is so much cyber-bullying and for me it’s so powerful every time someone posts these pictures.
