Chances are you have a Pinterest board dedicated to natural and smokey eye looks, follow makeup brands religiously on Instagram, or at least look up a YouTube makeup tutorial now and then. As normal, human girls, we are obsessed with the magic that is makeup. It can take anyone from a 2 to a 10 in roughly 20 minutes. And for that, we will shell out hundreds at the makeup store.
For those that have mastered the craft of all things beauty, you might even get re-posted on a few Instagram accounts. Why, hello followers! Where did you come from? And now there’s a #kissandmakeup campaign to promote your IG even more–and for a good cause. The campaign is to raise awareness for cyber-bullying and promote a more positive environment on Instagram.
Here are a few of the ladies (and gents) “fighting against cyber bullying.”

"We get so worried about being "pretty." Let's BE pretty KIND, pretty FUNNY, pretty SMART, and pretty STRONG!" -@littlelizziev Help create awareness about cyber-bullying by tagging a person you'd like to share a positive message with and post a picture with a kiss stain on the back of your hand using #kissandmakeup and be sure to tag @tartecosmetics & @bystanderrevolution!
Take a selfie and upload it to Instagram with the hashtag #KissAndMakeup if you want to take a stand against cyber-bullying, and also maybe get noticed by one of your favorite makeup brands. .
