Article and Artistic Design by Martina Farrugia F2 St Paul

When the pandemic started and activities got closed, I was trying to find a new hobby as I always liked being busy. I started to learn some basics of make-up and then I proceeded to the more creative side of make-up. I always enjoy doing make-up so it wasn’t hard to get the idea to do this anti-bullying makeup look. I also chose to do this look because I believe that if we have more people spreading the word, bullying will eventually stop.

With this make-up, I wanted to portray how one feels when bullied verbally. When someone calls us names, like ‘freak’ and ‘trash’, we feel that these words tear us apart.  Words feel like nails and knives stabbing our feelings and esteem.
