Sammie-Jo Hailford, who went viral for having 'Britain's biggest eyebrows', said in a TikTok video that she 'doesn't agree' with the beauty industry and what it teaches people.
Speaking to her followers the 27-year-old from Grimsby said: 'I'm here explaining to people and helping them grow their confidence to be themselves, not take judgement off anyone else, embrace their natural beauty, embrace the way they want to express themselves.'

She added people shouldn't judge others on their image before taking a swipe at people who poke fun at her enormous eyebrows, GrimsbyLive reports.
'You're fake and you're brainwashed into social conditioned behaviour and beauty standards that are not even real, they shouldn't exist,' she said.
Sammie-Jo added the beauty industry aims to 'steal your money' and make people 'mentally ill' due to the pressures it puts on people to look a certain way.
Since finding fame as a result of her mammoth eyebrows, Sammie-Jo has launched a movement called BROWS - which stands for Beauty Redefined or We Suffer.
Announcing her movement, she said she wants to help people improve their mental health by ditching accepted beauty standards.
When Sammie-Jo first made headlines for her unorthodox look she explained the used liquid eyeliner to paint her eyebrows on.
Arguing she liked to 'make a statement', Sammie-Jo said her eyebrows helped her stand out from the crowd.
Despite receiving plenty of nasty comments over her appearance, the mother told the Daily Star she also received messages from lots of men who thought she was 'beautiful' and had offered to take her out.
'They always mention the eyebrows first, so maybe there is a fetish there,' she said.
Sammie-Jo said that, as well as attracting attention online her eyebrows also turn heads in public, with people stopping her in the street to ask her about them.
After several years promoting her unusual look, the mother said trolls no longer bother her and she won't stop sharing her message with the world.
She said: 'Trolling doesn’t affect me now. I’m trying to raise awareness to the fact that people can be different.'
