There are a lot of people out there who just see Miley as just the wild child who goes too far with her outfits and nudity. But, if you look beyond just her image she is one of the most honest, innovative and passionate social advocates out there. Underneath it all there is a girl who uses her fame and money to do a whole lot of good.
Just last year, kind-hearted Miley got people talking when she donated an incredible $500,000 to help with AIDS research and awareness. The singer even started the Happy Hippie Foundation which is a wonderful non-profit organization that raises money and awareness for homeless youth. These are just a few of many wonderful things that Miley has decided to get involved with. Miley has now been chosen as the new face of the inspiring Viva Glam campaign by MAC Cosmetics.
Miley will be following in the footsteps (or should I say stiletto heels) of Lady Gaga, Dita Von Teese, Rihanna, Missy Elliot, Pamela Anderson and RuPaul, to name a few who have previously been ambassadors for the campaign.
What is Viva Glam?
Viva Glam was created in 1994 by the two founders of MAC Cosmetics. Using their passion for makeup and combining it with their kind hearts, they decided to do something amazing: Together they launched the MAC AIDS fund on a mission to make a difference. When you buy a Viva Glam product, 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS.

Miley wants fans to know it's not just about buying lipstick
''I want people to know they’re not just buying a lipstick from me.100% of the price goes towards helping women, men and children everywhere affected by HIV/AIDS. I’m super honored to be able to help."

You too can channel your inner Miley, while doing something amazing all at the same time!
Miley told the Mirror why getting involved is so important to her
"Part of this is education. And helping people who need support. But it’s also about how to prevent this. My fans are so young it’s essential they think about this kind of stuff and if it comes from me it’s less embarrassing than talking to friends or parents. So many people are scared to talk to their kids and if I can be the one that speaks up and educates young people, I will."
MAC celebrates the individual, Miley explains her color choices for the makeup.
''That is why I picked such loud colors, because I’m loud! Your hair, clothes and make-up are all a working art piece and you can do you want. That’s why I was so particular and annoying about this shade. It had to be the one that was the most ME. What’s fun about lipstick is if you have the right color, you don’t really need anything else. I don’t put much make-up on but I put on crazy lipstick because it makes you feel good, but it doesn’t cover up who you are.''
Whatever you may think of Miley, you can't deny that she is really doing something truly great by participating in this campaign
