For some reason, this picture shocked people who must have assumed that she rolls out of bed in full streaming makeup and hair every morning.

The side-by-side picture has over 1000 retweets and meme variations are popping up on Twitter.

Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau posted one popular tweet in response.

Pokimane even replied with a quick word of thanks.

The debate over the photo led to many streamers posting photos without makeup on and a variety of responses ranging from support to accusing people of being virgins.

Lost in all this debate about makeup is a crucial fact: Being an on-camera personality requires makeup 99.9% of the time, for both genders.
