19-year-old Maisie Beech thought she was doing something empowering when she posted a photo with half her face done up with dramatic makeup, while showing off her bare skin on the other side.
However, the ‘A’ level student started to receive a barrage of nasty comments after her photo circulated on the Internet, reports AsianTown.
Netizens said that she was ugly, scary and disgusting and some commentators even went as far to suggest that she had cancer.
Thankfully, she did receive some positive feedback.
Kim Kardashian's make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic was impressed by her makeup skills and posted her original half-and-half selfie online.
Check out her photos in the gallery below.
