The Beauty Co decided to associate with a larger cause with #untype, targetting stereotypes faced by modern society. The messaging was amplified through an influencer outreach program.

Stereotypes affect the way we look at ourselves. We are constantly reminded that our gender, color, size & sexuality defines us. Beauty brands play an important role in creating these stereotypes. As a beauty brand, The Beauty Co wanted to take a stand against these stereotypes. The brand believes that beauty is not only what we see but also about what we feel. When one feels beautiful it shows.
This campaign wanted people to feel beautiful regardless of the stereotypes that surround them.
The Beauty Co, through its campaign of #Untype, was aiming to take a stand on the societal norms revolving around the beauty industry. The objective of this campaign was to encourage everyone to ostracize the stereotypical beauty standards and embrace themselves. Hence, the brand came up with a positive campaign shunning societal practices, a campaign that aims to break the conventional and idealistic standards set over by the decades.
#Untype was driven by influencers who each stepped forward in support of this initiative with a proclamation of self-love, acceptance, and diversity.
