Moms are often their daughters' primary representation of female beauty. And when you strip away all of the unrealistic portrayals in the media and the constant comparing that grown women do, we're able to see what they see in us. And that's exactly why Canadian photographer Elly Heise wanted to start a project that reinvented the notion of beauty by having young girls do their mother's makeup. Hence, the photographic series #Daughterdoesmymakeup was born.
Heise shares, "I want this to inspire people to re-question their own definition of beauty in the same way it did for me, and to reconsider what we are really raising our younger generations to believe in."
