28 Funny Tumblr Posts About Beauty Struggles Only Girls Can Relate To

I don’t think I need to remind you that being a girl can be really difficult. We have to deal with things like the struggle for equality, the fight to have affordable birth control and female healthcare, the fact that slut-shaming and victim-blaming are still so prevalent, and the constant reminder that looks are still incredibly popular for women. That last one is what we’re going to focus on right now. When it comes to the beauty world, girls have a whole lot of crap to deal with. It can be big stuff – never feeling like we’re good enough thanks to the mainstream push of conventional beauty – and it can be smaller stuff – makeup struggles or stupid comments. Important or not so important, it doesn’t matter – it’s all annoying.

Sometimes, though, it can be helpful to look at this stuff from a more humorous point of view. Not only can it help some people understand a little bit better, but it’s also good to laugh at these things now and then so we don’t fall into a pit of depression – kidding, kind of. Anyway, Tumblr is good for that, as it is always good for a nice long laugh. Here are some of the funniest Tumblr posts about beauty struggles only girls will be able to relate to. Let’s get through this together!
