This makeup artist is under fire for ‘mimicking’ a rare skin condition on Instagram
‘SO WHAT WE’RE NOT GONNA DO IS…’
by Amanda Ross
Makeup artist and drag queen Golgi Apparatus has incurred the wrath of the internet after uploading an Insta photo that appeared to be a recreation of the skin condition vitiligo.
Causing the skin to lose its color in blotches, the condition is rocked by several prominent models including Winnie Harlow:

After the massive backlash, Golgi deleted the photo (of course) and claimed she was only trying to recreate this photo of drag queen/queen of my heart, Valentina:

You can only imagine how weird it would be to see Chinese people stomping around…
There’s a new proposed law to make glitter illegal, but I’m not going down without a fight
Absolutely fucking not!
by Katie Way
Some very un-lit scientists, apparently determined to turn the world into a shimmer-free hellscape, have deemed glitter a "global hazard," even going as far as recommending that "all glitter be banned" — and I'm furious.Glitter is allegedly an environmental hazard because it's made of microplastics, the same reason that many countries like the United States…
