Not Your Typical Makeup Tutorial: Woman Uses YouTube Video To Promote Self-Acceptance

By

This video by YouTube user Anna Akana starts off as a makeup tutorial, but turns into a video about self-acceptance and self-love.

Before you dismiss it as just another insignificant inspirational video about "being yourself," know that lots of women struggle with feeling good about themselves without makeup -- or, as Akana calls it, their "face."

However, there are lots of ways to display your face to the world, and most of that displaying really involves how you speak, how you think, how you balance yourself intellectually, spiritually, emotionally and physically, and how kind you are.

As Akana tries to prove through a bunch of makeup-to-life metaphors, you are not what you look like.

This girl is just like your awesome, spunky best friend giving you a much needed pep talk, and I totally just subscribed to her channel.
