gerlachness replied to your post:In regards to that Maybelline advertisement, it’s…Mostly because that’s their job though right? At least they aren’t objectifying the women or make it seem like they NEED the product to be feminine. It’s a step in the right direction at least from a vastly female form of beauty supply.
Meh, ads have been doing this forever. It’s still framing it as feminist and basically commodifying feminism.
How else would you want a makeup company to advertise though? I ask that because I wouldn’t want to see anything other than a healthy message, and I think that’s what this is. And I don’t think it gives off a post-feminist vibe but relays out a message we have all been screaming at the world forever. In response to the people who still think this way. And yeah they’re using feminist ideals to make money, but man is it so much better than the poisonous message so many other brands are sending out. They’re doing the opposite of what most ads do which is- “Look at this pretty. You no pretty. Take this, it make you like Kate Winslet.” They’re saying “The way you are is awesome, and if wearing makeup how you want makes you happy, you shouldn’t be shamed for it. Also we’ve got some really good shit” See? That’s not bad, it’s great!
