These Young Brazilian Women Perfectly Responded To A "Beauty Trends Guys Hate" Article

"My face is mine, nobody says what I should wear."

Posted on

So when Atrevida, a Brazilian magazine aimed at teen girls, published an article about make-up trends girls should stop following because boys "do not like" them, it didn't go down too well.


The article, which caused outrage in Brazil, gave tips on how to "conquer" boys, and said girls shouldn't wear "irritating" red lipstick, shouldn't wear blusher as it makes a girl look like a "clown".

But instead of staying quiet, young women spoke out and criticised it for shaming women's choices. One wrote: "Really, I'll wear whatever I wanna wear, not what boys would like me to wear, the face is mine."

It wasn't just young women, too. One man wrote: "GIRLS, you are FREE, F-U-C-K what men think, love yourselves. Kudos to the freedom of the woman's body!!!!! And about the article? INCREDIBLY U-S-E-L-E-S-S."

The above conversation reads:

Alice: "It's great to see this generation's comments about not giving a fuck to men."

Elânia: "Hey Atrevida!! You fucked up, huh? You thought we came here to serve men."

Marco: "Since when men are supposed to tell women what to wear or not?"
