In collaboration with Very Good Light, Milk Makeup released 'Blur the Lines,' which shows off one of its universal makeup products and starts a conversation on blurring the lines on the gender spectrum.
Milk Makeup's campaign stars people who describe identifying themselves as "an alien," "he, man, him or queen" or "a boy growing into a man," among others who don't quite feel they fit the gender binary. Throughout the video, these individuals can be seen applying Milk Makeup's Blur Stick, which helps to reshape some of the ways that both brands and consumers think about makeup, as well as who it is designed for.
Across the beauty industry, cosmetic beauty like Rimmel, Covergirl and Maybelline are now involving male influencers like Lewys Ball, James Charles and Manny Gutierrez in their marketing as a means of challenging conventional beauty and gender norms.
