After showing her picture on the Internet, she was flooded with a wave of hate. It’s all because her skin is different from the standards created by the media

People can be mean, especially if they are anonymous like in the Internet. Em Ford, a 27-year-old ex-model, conducted an experiment that goes far beyond the standards of beauty created by the media.

She put up her picture without make-up on and received over 100000 comments, most of them negative. That’s why she’s recorded this short video, where she presents herself in full makeup and without it. It also started a landslide of comments. Ford said: “I wanted to create a film that showed how social media can set unrealistic expectations on both women and men. One challenge many face today, is that as a society, we’re so used to seeing false images of perfection, and comparing ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards that It can be hard to remember the most important thing – You ARE beautiful.  You are beautiful – no matter how flawed you feel, no matter how upset you may about the way you look or how hard you find it to make friends, or be confident. Believe in yourself, and never let anyone tell you’re not beautiful – not even yourself.”

Em Ford posted her picture without makeup, showing her skin, which diverges from standards created by the media.


After a landslide of comments, especially negative ones, she decided to create this video, which shows her in full makeup and without it.


If you liked what message this amazing girl is sending then share with your friends on Facebook, after all we are all beautiful, all we have to do is believe it.
