Emma Blackery, Riyadh Khalaf, Doug Armstrong, Mark Ferris, and more feature in the #glitterbrows campaign for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Photographer Linda Blacker has photographed a number of UK YouTubers as part of Alzheimer’s Research UK’s “Glitterbrows” campaign. Her photoshoot aims to encourage people to glitter their eyebrows and raise money for dementia research.
Speaking of her involvement, Linda revealed that the cause is personal to her: “I lost my nan to dementia with Lewy bodies two years ago, so I’ve seen first-hand how devastating dementia can be to the person living with it and their loved ones.
“Working with Alzheimer’s Research UK and YouTubers to bring this campaign to life has been a privilege, and I look forward to seeing people across the country wearing glitterbrows to support this worthiest of causes.”
Yass got my GLITTER on! 😏✨

Lucy Squance, director of supporter-led fundraising at Alzheimer’s Research UK, said: “Christmas can be a tough time of year for those with a family member living with dementia. We wanted to launch a new fundraising campaign that was simple to do and gave people the chance to have fun while supporting vital dementia research.
“We’re extremely excited to have teamed up with the YouTube community and Linda Blacker to launch Glitterbrows, and hope people across the country get behind the campaign to help power life-changing research.”
