    Word for word this is exactly how I feel and what I say to others! We are
    beautiful no matter what! Acne or no acne, nobody is perfect in this world.
    We are all perfectly imperfect and able to do whatever we want to make us
    feel happy. Because after all, life is better when we are happy. God bless
    you for making this beautiful video. I hope it goes viral and everybody get
    the message! ♡ +Melanie Murphy

    This was so wonderful! Thank you for sharing. 🙂 I have struggled with acne
    for 11 years and makeup was the one thing that helped me get through the
    school years..and even now! A little concealer and mascara can make an
    awful looking morning feel so much brighter. Because of makeup I can face
    the work day with more of a cheerful attitude..and not dreading what people
    may think of my flawed skin.

    I’ve been overweight my whole life, been beaten up, constantly challenged
    and bullied so my goal was to fade into the background when I got to
    highschool. There, no one bothered me, but still hiding amongst the shadows
    in fear was not what I wanted to be a priority in my education. I took a
    step forward one day, said hi to a stranger…when nothing bad happened,
    the next day I said hi to two more. My confidence was building month by
    month. And at some point i was so far from the shadows that i actually felt
    dim in the light of personal growth. I’d worked so hard to get over empty
    threats and puss filled words that my look became sallow and aged me quite
    a bit.

    Makeup soon arrived into my life. The colours, the pizzazz, it brought from
    the brink of natural camoflauge to centre stage if I so desired. Makeup is
    the cool clothes that never fit my size, its the shoes that didnt come in
    width sizes, and its my testament to showing anyone with a cruel heart that
    yeah, I’m a big girl, I have acne, but !Snap! This girls got personality.

    I wear make up to hide my acne scars and pimples but most important, I wear
    make up because it makes me feel good !! xx Love you Melanie

  • Euph R 3 years ago

    I personally don’t wear makeup because I feel more confident without it,
    but shaming an art form that most women do/enjoy is just oppression at it’s
    most subliminal. Any song/guy that says “girl you’re prettier without it”
    is just saying “women wear makeup for men and here’s our
    extensive/paradoxical opinion on what you should or should not do.” It’s
    bullshit and people should do whatever makes them feel good, and if that’s
    makeup, more power to you! Great vid! : )

    I can completely relate to this video, very powerful! 

  • Brenda Jacobo 3 years ago

    You’re gorgeous & I share the same story as you.. Because of make up I
    don’t feel like I have to hide my face or worry that people are rather
    starring at my acne than listening to me. Pimples are evil creatures! Also
    you couldn’t have said it any better!(: People who complain about girls
    looking different with make up are the same people that drool over models
    and who disregard features we have due to acne or such. Hugs and kisses
    sent your way! (:

    What an inspirational video Melanie! Well done girlie 😀 I definitely agree
    with your view on make up, it definitely changes how I feel about make up.
    I’m not the kind of person who won’t leave the house without it, because
    luckily my skin is not the worst, but it definitely makes me feel more
    confident about myself when I do wear it <3 Great video Melanie hope you're
    keeping well 🙂 xox

  • Crumpets and Marmalade 3 years ago

    I’ve suffered with my skin so much the last year and it really does effect
    how you feel about yourself. I remember a woman at work said I shouldn’t
    wear so much makeup as it makes me look older, she obviously couldn’t see
    what I was trying to cover up! If makeup makes you feel confident, or even
    attractive then why wouldn’t I wear it!? I can’t leave the house without
    it, although one day I would love to.

  • RinaRunaway 3 years ago

    cool vid <3 is this Vichy powder good? I have problematic skin, I wonder if
    it works

  • JennyCThree 3 years ago

    I like make up but I do think it is problematic to expect people to wear
    it. I’m always kind of worried I will end up feeling uncomfortable without
    it, so I only wear it 50% of the time. 

  • ShaneG 3 years ago

    makeup is simply an extension of the personality. Hair, clothing and makeup
    all express something.
    Self expression is a great thing and should never be shunned

  • NakedWithoutMyLippy 3 years ago

    I wear makeup because I enjoy the experimentation aspect and covering my
    flaws. It makes me feel more confident and strangely enough I can
    concentrate and focus better when i’m wearing makeup. I loved this video.
    You are so beautiful Melanie <3 

  • JustSteph 3 years ago

    You’re an amazing person Melanie <3.
    The most important makeup item to me is concealer. I have PCOS (poly cystic
    ovarian syndrome) and I subsequently suffer from hirsutism on my chin area.
    In order to hide the spots and hyperpigmentation I get from hair removal
    attempts I can't live without concealer. It makes me happy and it makes me
    feel confident, comfortable and beautiful.
    Thank you for making this video xxxx<3

  • Kensey C 3 years ago

    This video is so beautiful Melanie! 🙂 I loved it, it made me feel
    empowered! I completely agree with your view on makeup, that it’s not to
    hide anything it’s to enhance and to bring confidence and also it’s a bit
    of fun! You go girl! 🙂 xxx

    Shit, i just bought the Clinique 3 step routine,….50 bucks for nothing

  • Lorna Raindrops 3 years ago

    I’m really glad you made this video! I’ve known for a long time about these
    things like greasy hair, washing pillows, brushes, drinking water, avoiding
    sugar, eating nutrient based foods etc, even though some people say it has
    no effect, especially food, it truly does. I live by these rules and my
    skin is better, it’s not fully clear as I stress out a lot and have hormone
    issues, but it’s miles better than it was when I didn’t pay attention to
    these things. I know when I have eaten something bad for me as my face
    tingles and gets itchy, so I know it’s something to avoid. Butter, milk,
    cheese, dairy milk, crisps, haribo, gummy sweets and things like that I
    always have to avoid or my face breaks out awful!

  • ReserviorBasterds 3 years ago

    These are actually the exact same things I done a couple of years ago when
    I had severe acne and within months my skin really cleared up! Everyone
    should follow your tips instead of spending heaps of money for
    off-the-shelf products with no real results.

  • ibarra arturo 3 years ago

    Honestly. Ive been researching all kinds of ways to help my acne and ive
    waisted 1 year. Ive been on google and youtube (and acne product websites)
    . All the videos said, “how to get clear skin”, “easy way to get rid of
    acne” etc etc… any ways none of them BS recipes worked. For 1 year as i
    can remember. I got sick of this fake BS on YouTube and went to a
    professional dermatologist and got medication for my acne. Its been 32 days
    and its dramatically helped my infected cystic acne. It went to 15 pimples
    on each cheek and 8 pimples on my forehead, to clear forehead and 5 pimples
    on each cheek. And its only been 32 days. The treatment last 3 months. Lol.
    I am sooooo happy i went to my dermatologist and followed up with her. Its
    not even hard. Its just a cream and a pill. Antibiotics. Not even harsh
    pill. Antibiotics are used alot for infections. So i cant wait to see the 3
    month result. Ive also got through the breakout week which is in the 3 week
    of the treatment. The breakout lasted a week or two. And after that it was
    all over with. Its not bad either. Its like 4 more pimples lol. Any ways,
    all i have to work on now is my cheeks and then the battle. Of blemishes
    Medication im taking.

    Retin A cream (apply at night)
    Benzoyl peroxide (apply in mornings)
    Doxycycline (take one tablet a day after meal)
    Not hard at all. Better than boiling herbs and applying potatoes and other
    wierd stuff on your face like toothpaste, coffee, bakimg soda,lemon, and
    crushed headache pills.

    Hope you guys go to a professional and get rid of acne. Its a shitty battle
    to go through

    skin texture is miles better! I managed to get coupon codes for my
