Actress/body positive activist Jameela Jamil continues to spread the good word about body acceptance by coming after anything that could be considered dangerous and unnatural. In recent months, she has come after actresses who use those detox "poop juice" teas. Now, she is coming after Kim Kardashian West's new makeup line.
Kim Kardashian West recently unveiled her body makeup line. The makeup would make it easier for the wearer to hide their imperfections and wear what they want with pride.
Jameela Jamil clapped back at KKW with a "hard pass" on the makeup. She also had this to say about the product:
"G*d damn the work to take it all off before bed so it doesn’t destroy your sheets... I’d rather just make peace with my million stretch marks and eczema. Taking off my mascara is enough of a pain in the arse. Save money and time and give yourself a damn break."
While many agreed with Jamil, others came in defense of KKW, saying that the makeup helps the wearer feel better about themselves (the makeup promises to hide stretch marks, freckles, eczema, psoriasis, and more).
My Two Cents
I get where Jameela is coming from. I don't like what the Kardashians stand for and they consistently back products that are dangerous. However, I don't see anything wrong with wearing a little makeup to cover areas of our bodies that are undesirable. After losing 102lbs in my lifetime, I have stretch marks (lots of them). If I was invited to a big event, I would totally use the makeup to hide my stretch marks.
On the flipside, you should be comfortable with who you are in your own skin. The makeup is a temporary facade and it all comes off in the shower. You have to be okay with seeing your true self after all that makeup is off.
