    Ok let’s just admit, no matter how advance we become... makeup will always theoretically be bad for u. Ur skin absorbs, so to tint things with chemicals and spread on ur face can’t be good

    I get how eyeshadow and lipstick can be a form of art but nobody will be able to convince me that foundation and concealer are artistic. Foundation and concealer are used to cover up flaws.

    Jesus these comments! The video is just explaining the dangers of make up.
    They’re just warning you and I get make up is expensive sometimes but I wouldn’t just attack a channel explaining something

    People tell other people who wear make up to stop wearing it but judge them right after they take it off. Beauty has high standards and personally I wear make up to look presentable in public, is it my fault i was not born a presentable face?? I wear make up to feel good about myself, I just wasn't made to feel confident in my own face. For some its for art, i do admit i enjoy putting it on and seeing how many looks i can do. I love make up, and nobody should be put you down because you like it too.

    How about not wearing make up and try eating some healthy stuff or use healthy products to prevent stuff you want to cover up in make up

    I just don't wear it at all. Girls at my age just over do during their time of youth. I'm 12 btw and I see girls a little older than me and the same age as me use it or they even say they have a desire for makeup. To me it makes your face look dried out and increases ance. I just want to make myself glow with makeup!

    Make-up is not good for your skin. People support putting make up on because it will "make your face more pretty" or "it can cover up your non good looking side". I don't really support putting make-up on everyday to make yourself pretty or hide your ugliness. Only because it's not good for you, it causes you to have really bad acne and ruin your skin. Putting on more makeup is not going to help it go away. I think , that people should stop using makeup as an excuse that your ugly when you truly aren't. There IS such a thing as skin care , I dont know why people can buy make up to cover up your true face and ignore the fact of buying products that can actually help your skin be cleaner and a healthy looking face. Who cares what other people say to you? your face will be healthy in a blink of an eye if you really and truly put effort into it in take care of your skin rather than use makeup.
