Depression is a serious and common mental illness (Cara Delevignge has spoken about her struggles). With so many sufferers, YouTuber Amy Geliebter used a video makeup tutorial to explain in a light-hearted way how living with depression feels.
“Here, I’ll be showing you how to get this chic depression look,” she says to start off the video. As she goes through the different steps, she adds quips like, “Make sure your foundation is nice and rocky and emotionally unstable.”
She even refers to one of the shades of eyeshadow as ‘Just Be Happy’, one of the most frequent things depression sufferers hear from people who don’t understand the very basis of depression.
It’s not your typical makeup tutorial, but it’s absolutely one worth watching.
