#KissAndMakeup is a movement I firmly believe in. I’ve been apart of the movement for a little over a year & I couldn’t feel stronger about it. This movement was created by Tarte Cosmetics in an effort to make online bullying stop.

You shouldn’t fear anyone hiding behind a screen and trying to belittle the person you are or becoming.
“Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year,”

Typically something is going on that this anger stems from that. This can be prevented.
