Kick-ass social media campaign inspired by fresh-faced feminist Amy Schumer

It's hard to be funny. It's even harder to inspire people. But Amy Schumer makes both look easy.

Her latest effort, the hilarious One Direction parody "Girl You Don't Need Makeup," isn't just making women laugh, stand up and cheer. It's inspiring them take off their own makeup and share their bare-faced selfies on social media.

Then Amy took to Twitter to share her own #GirlYouDontNeedMakeup picture and ask other women to do the same.

And they did.

You can tell from the comments Amy is inspiring ladies out of much more than their foundation — she's taking them out of their comfort zone. Also, Melissa, you do not look gross. You are beautiful.

Here's a girl learning early in life that #GirlYouDontNeedMakeup.

Even dudes wanted in on the action.

And doggies couldn't resist the urge to post their own #GirlYouDontNeedMakeup pics.

Gotta love to see teenagers getting the message that they're beautiful without makeup.

No makeup + Chipotle = Winning.

A girl and her grandma who definitely don't need makeup.

And even I couldn't stop myself for standing with my sisters who aren't afraid to look like themselves. Kinda scary though! Helps you appreciate the guts it took for Amy Schumer to do it on TV.

Even Amy seems a little overwhelmed by the nerve she's obviously tapped into among women.

We can't wait to see what she comes up with next. There are plenty of women who will be watching, without makeup.
