Women get crap for most of their life choices, but the dumbest one has to be about whether or not they use makeup.

Now, companies admittedly try to prey on women's insecurities to make them feel like they need it, but women are smart. Some of us use it because it's fun, or because it allows us to switch up our look.

However, there is a lot of stigma against it, like stupid guys telling women not to wear it because their favorite celebrity doesn't, when really, they don't know the power of foundation and concealer.

Well, this makeup vlogger is calling out makeup-shamers in her latest video.

NikkieTutorials on YouTube was inspired by an episode of Ru Paul's Drag Race where contestants only applied makeup to half of their face. She films herself doing the same thing with a very important message.

"I've been noticing a lot lately that girls have been almost ashamed to say that they love makeup, 'cause nowadays when you say you love makeup you either do it because you wanna look good for boys, you do it because you're insecure, or you do it because you don't love yourself. I feel like in a way, lately it's almost a crime to love doing your makeup," she says in her video.

She goes on to talk about the flak she's gotten herself for her love of makeup.

"I notice a lot that when I don't wear makeup and I have my hair up in a bun, and I meet people, and I show them pictures of my videos, or whatever looks I have done, they look at me and straight up tell me, 'That is not you.' They tell me that's funny, because I don't even look like that girl on the picture," explains Nikkie.
