I wake up for makeup.

I have always had a strong love and passion for the art of Makeup. I've been doing makeup/hair for the past 11 years but really my love for makeup began when I was just a toddler. Upon graduating High School I immediately pursued my passion and enrolled in a private college, the School Of Professional Makeup Arts. This is where I got my Diploma in Advance Makeup Arts, Airbrush, and Hair Styling. Since graduating Makeup School I have worked in many different avenues of Makeup & Hair- including bridal, editorial, TV, fashion, and stage. I eventually achieved my goal of opening up my own beauty studio, Cassie Lewis Makeup Studio. I am a perfectionist and don't let a client leave my chair unless every detail on her face is absolutely picture-perfect. I spend a lot of time on each and every client, because quality means way more to me then quantity does. My work is always described as extremely detailed. I go above and beyond to make sure my client walks away feeling her absolute prettiest.

Nike Women's campaigns mostly go by without controversy, but their latest ad has caused a major furore with commenters - for the most ridiculous reason.

The ad, for a new sports bra, features Nigerian-American singer and model Annahstasia with the caption"big mood" and was posted on their Instagram account on Thursday.

Within minutes of the picture being posted, commenters began kicking off because the model has her arm raised and is showing the teeniest smattering of hair on her armpit.

Nike isn't the first major brand to use this kind of imagery, with Adidas recently also having a campaign of women showing off their natural hair.

Hopefully this marks a major cultural shift and more brands will hop on board with realistic imagery, proving once and for all that body hair on women is nothing but natural. Looks like the trolls will just have to get used to it.

I don't think armpit hair looks nice either (no, also not on men, never seen a man's armpit hair and thought"yummy") and so what? I don't like it so I shave, if you don't care, leave it. But you can't demand that everyone feels the same way about it! People can have preferences if they want, not everyone can like the same things.

Exactly! I find pubic hair in general to be gross.. on both women and men.. this debate on it being natural and everyone having to get used to it is absolutely ridiculous.. a lot of things are natural, just because something is natural doesn't mean it's right or good.. a lot of things in nature like predators and poisonous plants are natural.. do we accept them? plus pubic hair traps bacteria so double gross..

This is fantastic advertising. Put something that will cause a stir and their brand is on the lips of everyone... Marketing at it's finest!

This is so funny - good ole' Mother Nature gives us girls hair like the boys to trap our natural pheromes (sex attracting smell) and we're expected to shave it all off and wear artificial perfumes!

People saying “that is not nice to look at” how often do you look at peoples armpits. I wish everyone would stop judging so people would feel free to make their own decisions. It’s hair ffs if you don’t like it don’t look

I’m a grown up & it’s still disgusting to see. However if that’s what you prefer by all means. If it’s because your trying to prove a point, then I don’t get it. It seems like it’s to much work to shave for some.

Armpit hair is naturally not a bad thing. Grow it out! Or not. Either way. Neither is wrong
