There’s so much more to you than meets the eye…

SO. Fashion and beauty megastar-vlogger, Zoella is being talked about a lot in the adult world at the moment.

With her new beauty range and book out at the moment, I’m sure she needs no introduction but just in case here’s the .

Depending on who you talk to, Zoella is either the role model you guys have all been looking for, or she is teaching you all to care far too much about what you look like.

The main problem people seem to have with Zoella’s blogs and videos is that one minute she is telling you guys not to worry about the way you look [link to example], and the next she’s telling you all how fantastic the new makeup range at Boots is….you see where this is going?

Most of her critics think that this makes Zoella a bit of a hypocrite.

She’s in a tough position – you can’t please everyone. But isn’t there a middle ground?

I don’t know about you guys but I find it’s fun to mess around and experiment, with clothes, makeup and hair styles. Using your face as a canvas for some wacky new creation, like a painting, is something EVERYONE should be able to do!

The thing is, Zoella is also right when she says you shouldn’t worry about what you like.

There are sooooooooo many more ways of being a girl, being an individual, than having this season’s hair, or shoes, or clothes. You don’t need to have the right-shaped eyebrows to express who you are all the time.

So….Here’s this week’s challenge: If you normally wear make-up to school (even if it’s only a bit of mascara or lip gloss) try one day without it.

Take a picture and share it on Twitter and Facebook @Grrrlslife with the hastag #barefacebeauty and say how you feel.

This time it’s not for charity – it’s all about you!

I’ve already shared mine to get the ball rolling so what are you waiting for?
