From this day, she created a real wave of inspiration on social networks. "I don't want to hide anything anymore: not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my difficulties, not my emotions. No more."
She kept on growing the movement #NoMakeup by showing up to premiers and on the red carpet without any make up. 
This movement was then followed by many stars on social networks.

5. Celeste Barber 

Celeste Barber is an Australian comedian, writer and video artist. She is known on social networks for her posts and parody videos of famous women, especially models in very sensual poses. 

She used to joke via message with her sister about how women behave on a daily basis and how they are represented in these promotional photos and videos. She then decided to share them publicly by parodying them, and she became known worldwide. She accumulates no less than 9 million followers on her instagram account, where it’s possible to find posts where she tries to recreate photos of famous women, parodying the photo. 

She uses her voice to showcase the very difference between the appearance lots of women have on social media compared to the reality we all live in. A good way to remind everyone that perfection doesn't exist, or yes it does: perfection is accepting who we are as we are, and growing from there. 

As Oscar use to say, any way : “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken”
