When the words “Feminist Make-Up tutorial” sashayed onto my Tumblr dashboard, I took the delicious piece of click-bait in order to find out how to fight misogyny while looking fabulous. Sure enough, it taught me how to put my Smash the Patriarchy #2 lipstick to good use, AND it became an instant favorite amongst my peers.
