If you’re not one of Khloe Dosh’s 251,000 followers, then you probably know her face from her hilarious viral cut-crease hack using a broken plastic hanger. And if you are already a fan, you know her stellar makeup tutorials both on herself and on models. One such tutorial that she did back in April is picking up steam again because of the powerful message behind it.
The video, which Dosh posted to her Facebook page, shows Dosh applying makeup to fellow beauty blogger ChaseMUA. But it’s actually not all about the makeup this time. (Though you should watch until the big reveal — Chase looks great!) Instead, it’s all about Dosh’s caption about what it’s like to be a “big girl.”
“I use to be a big girl. My whole life growing up I hated taking pictures, I hated family events, I hated anything that would force me to see myself,” she writes. “Back then I thought that the person I was on the outside was what would open doors for me, find me love, show my talent, etc. But you get older, you get wiser and realize people don’t change. They get meaner they get angrier they get more ignorant. What changes is how you feel about yourself. Being bigger doesn’t mean anything is wrong with you. You’re not ‘pretty for a big girl’ or ‘sexy for a big girl.’ You’re just beautiful and sexy for a human being. Change when you want to change, on your own time. You are the leader on your journey. I went so many years scared to do something I loved because I was afraid of myself, honestly. Confidence doesn’t come overnight, take the first step. Help it grow. Look in the mirror and tell yourself how beautiful you’ve always been, and how beautiful you will remain regardless of social media tells you is ‘beautiful.’
In an email with Allure, Dosh explains that she received positive comments about a recent weight loss, but all that changed when she gained some back. “The moment I gained some of the weight back it was back to ‘you’re fat,’ ‘are you pregnant?’ etc, [but it] no longer bothered me the way it did when I was originally big. I [made this video because I] wanted others to know that your beauty and your confidence is all up to you.” She chose to do this video to both inspire and entertain, and aims to create content that does both.
It makes sense Dosh would work with ChaseMUA on this since Chase has been outspoken about the beauty industry favoriting one “look.” She asked where all the dark-skinned influencers were in media, and she’s spoken out against body shaming.
