British television show This Morning was running an anti-bullying awareness series at one time so they invited 12-year-old Reuben De Maid to guest for one of their episodes. Reuben is an internet sensation known for his makeup tutorials. He’s already been on The Ellen Show twice and Kim Kardashian even showed up in one of his makeup episodes.
The hosts asked Reuben about his life growing up, how he got interested in doing makeup, and how he’s had to deal with bullying because of that. Reuben relates that even at a young age he and his sister would play dress up. That eventually progressed into an interest in makeup and that’s when Reuben started to seriously do research online in order to improve his skills.
Makeup is such a passion for Reuben and one cannot doubt that he put a lot of effort into his craft. According to him, he’s an avid fan of art and makeup is a form of art to him. Of course, there came a time when Reuben wanted to go out in the world while wearing makeup. His supportive mother warned him that not all people were going to accept him but even with that warning, Reuben’s encounters with bullying still hurt.
Watch how Reuben decided to deal with those who bullied him:
