Those kiss-adorned selfies you've seen populating your Instagram feed have a larger story than pure aesthetics. This week, Tarte Cosmetics teamed up with the Bystander Revolution to launch their #KissAndMakeup initiative, which aims to raise awareness against cyber-bullying. "Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year," the brand wrote in a post. "Eighty-eight percent of teens witness cyber-bullying every day, and 41 percent of teens say they've experienced it." In addition to taking a lipstick selfie, Tarte and the Bystander Revolution encourage participants to tag a friend with whom they'd like to share a positive message, change the conversation, and ignore the haters in online comment sections.

Celebrities—including Lily Collins (above)—and beauty gurus alike were so moved by the sentiment, as evidenced by the lip print selfies all over your screen, and you can get involved too. Simply take a photo of yourself with your lip print on your hand, share a short message, and upload the photo with the #KissAndMakeup hashtag now. Now that's a beautiful cause in every sense of the word if we've ever seen one. Check out a few more of the posts below, and get in on the fun by tagging @tartecosmetics and @bystanderrevolution in your post!
