This Makeup Tutorial Shows What Goes into Concealing Depression from the World

YouTuber Amy Geliebter released a makeup tutorial to talk about something that’s rarely ever spoken of—mental illness.
Living with depression is draining on its own, but to have to explain it to the rest of the world or even hide it tires one out in a way that cannot be described. Geliebter’s video explains how much goes into just getting through the day for someone living with depression.

She spoke to Buzzfeed, and said, “Mental health is always talked about in an academic way. I think to be able to talk about it in a way that’s funny and relatable helps more people feel not alone.” Hoping her video really helps the rest of the world see what it’s like to live with a mental illness, she tells those suffering to not give up. “I hope people watching it know that they’re not alone and that there are always people out there who know what you’re going through,” she said.
