Um ataque de pânico fez a blogueira e maquiadora Yasaman Gheid, que vive em Vancouver, no Canadá, deixar uma festa da empresa onde trabalha, em dezembro. Para os colegas, ela deu como desculpa uma dor de cabeça.
O episódio serviu como impulso para que, um tempo depois, ela lançasse um desafio de maquiagem com o propósito de jogar luz sobre o sofrimento causado por doenças mentais. Assim nasceu a hashtag “InsideOutChallenge” no Instagram (algo como o desafio do interior para fora, em tradução livre do inglês).
Para mostrar que a síndrome do pânico, assim como outros males, tem dois lados, ela publicou um vídeo na rede social com um tutorial diferente de maquiagem. Nele, ela divide o rosto em duas metades: em uma faz uma maquiagem normal e na outra, uma pintura que remete ao seu estado emocional.
A hashtag ganhou adesão e outras mulheres passaram a compartilhar seus rostos maquiados dessa forma, para mostrar que também enfrentavam doenças mentais.

#Repost @aria_mavens with @repostapp ??? This is my visualization of how depression and anxiety affect me. It feels like my head is turning into a black hole that absorbs all the happiness, hope and self esteem, as well as everything else I feel - except sadness. It gets overwhelming if it lasts and I usually think that I'll never feel happy, calm and secure again. The stigmatization makes it even worse. If you constantly have to pretend you're fine and aren't it makes you feel even worse. I have suffered from various mental illnesses for over 10 years. I'm glad that today most of the people in my life know about my illness and accept it as a part of me and listen to me. They are there for both parts of me, the positive and the negative. This is why I participate in @lilmoonchildd s #insideoutchallenge - let's end the stigma!

#Repost @lysslady with @repostapp ??? It's a strange thing, living with mental illness. For something that is so influential and life altering, most people can't tell that you have it. There usually aren't any physical symptoms, unless you create them yourself, so it's invisible. And thanks to the stigma surrounding mental health, people like myself often choose to keep it that way, struggling in silence. Now that I've decided to be open about what I deal with, I've been thinking a lot about my own coping mechanisms. I am more vocal and I don't really lie anymore, but I still downplay it. I still choose to put on a happy face and act the way that I've been told is acceptable. "Keep it to yourself" "Stop being negative" "Don't be a burden" This kind of talk is the reason my mental illness has mostly gone untreated for over 10 years! I choose not to listen to these people anymore. My struggles are real and if you think they're an inconvenience to you, you should try living with them constantly in your head! The only burden is coping alone. The #insideoutchallenge asks you to share what your mental illness does to you. My depression clouds everything. Life is muted, muddy, and monochromatic. My anxiety breaks through that darkness, creating cracks of blinding panic and leaving scars that never quite heal ?? I'm clearly not a makeup artist here, but I think the idea of actually wearing your mental illness is incredibly important. There's NO need to hide or put on a front. I have zero shame. The more open we are the easier it will be for the world to get it #endthestigma #stigmafree #mentalhealthawareness #anxiety #depression #makeup #makeupchallenge
#Repost @kj.cosmetology with @repostapp ??? #insideoutchallenge I have two semi-obscure forms of OCD, also called BFRBs, called Trichotillomania and Dermatillomania. They are incredibly common, but not often talked about. Trichotillomania, a disorder that involves recurrent and irresistible urges to pull one's body hair, affects over 200,000 people in the US per year. Dermatillomania, the repetitive picking at one's own skin to the extent of causing damage, affects up to 5.4% of the general population. These disorders may seem to be nothing more than a little embarrassing, but they are often accompanied by anxiety disorders and potentially other forms of OCD. Personally, I pull at my eyebrows and eyelashes, and I compulsively pick at my fingers and face. I am currently in behavioral therapy, hopefully soon moving on to anxiety medication. This is (only part of) my mental health story. Your mental health is never something to be ashamed of. Share your story. Thank you @lilmoonchildd for creating such a wonderful creative outlet to raise awareness for mental health, it means the world.
#Repost @bat.barbie with @repostapp ・・・ I'll be posting 3 photos in the next few hours. All are of the same makeup look, inspired by @lilmoonchildd 's #insideoutchallenge. The challenge is to raise awareness of/for mental illnesses. The goal is to show how uniquely someone can be emoting on the inside, despite a normalized outward appearance. 🎭 I inherited depression and anxiety disorders from my mom, who inspires me constantly to keep moving forward. I know there will always be road blocks, but I'm actually really happy by how much understanding there is on social media now about anxiety/depression. It doesn't have to be a dark mystery! Everyone's experience is different. The more the social stigma lifts, the better. Thanks and praise to everyone who helps humanity toward this goal. 🌏 I'll explain my makeup concept and how it reflects my anxiety in my next post. 💄Lip is KVD's Lolita. White pigment is by Kryolan in Pearl over Mehron white water cake. More details to follow. 💋(Check out @lilmoonchildd 's page, btw! She's an amazing human being and one of my favorite MUAs on Instagram.) #makeup #portrait #creativeportrait #anxiety #depression
