YouTube's Beauty Gurus Speak Out Against Makeup Shaming: Watch

Over the last month, we've seen far too many stories about makeup shaming—a term that's just starting to develop in the internet lexicon which describes a practice of putting girls and women down for wearing "too much makeup" (whatever that means). It's a problem that's cropping up all over the internet, from Twitter to YouTube, and has even garnered the attention of celebrities like Zendaya.

MTV News hit up BeautyCon LA (July 11) to ask the attendees there—from YouTube beauty gurus like Meghan Rienks and Amanda Steele to celebs like Karrueche Tran and Alli Simpson—to express their thoughts on makeup shaming and if they've ever been on the receiving end of makeup-shaming comments.

The ladies of BeautyCon have excellent advice for anyone who might find themselves being makeup-shamed, but if you or someone you know might be the victim of cyberbullying or digital abuse, check out A Thin Line for more resources and information.
