After Ali posted two selfies with a freshly made-up face, the hate came thick and fast – with several Instagram users criticising the image for the way she edited it and labelled her “fake”.

“Why does this picture look like a cartoon? You are already way more naturally beautiful than most people with out all this extreme photoshop crap. What you are actually doing is feeding a false reality and affecting young impressionable girls,” one said.

I have these epiphanies or strong intuition feelings & have to share because I get so excited & get such clarity. Does anyone else experience these? By stopping our mental block & going with our energy flow, we believe whole heartedly, we feel openly, we say what we mean(without hurting) instead of what we “think” should be said! I do this all the time & catch myself out on it & I’m so much happier! ???? #selfcheck #selfawareness Go with YOUR FLOW not THE FLOW! #fromtheheart #selflove #inspired #inspiring #healthyliving .

But while other fans threw their support behind the reality star and wellness blogger, condemning the trolls for their hate-filled messages, the negative commentary stuck with Ali.
