Amy Schumer Parodies One Direction

(Radio.com) Amy Schumer doesn't need makeup and she hopes young girls know that too. But being the satirist she is, she found a much funnier way to say that. Bonus: the clip features a killer One Direction parody group, complete with only four members and a very Harry Styles-like member. Just look at that hair!

In the clip from a recent episode of Inside Amy Schumer, the comedian teams up with a boy band who sings a song quite similar to 1D's "What Makes You Beautiful" to ask the question, "What makes women beautiful?" So many men say they prefer a woman without makeup, but Schumer has her doubts.

In the clip, these boys swear that Amy looks better without anything on her face telling her to wash it off in the sink and that she has an "inner, natural glow" that she needs to show off without all that gunk on her face.

But after taking their sweet advice, the boys look at Amy's fresh face and seem to change their mind about the whole no-makeup look. Soon, those loving words of how beautiful she is change drastically with the guys singing things like, 'You're great except your face, girl, so don't take off your makeup!"

One member even lists his regrets: missing his father's funeral, being high when his niece was born, but telling her to take off her makeup was his biggest. 'Please listen girl," one of the members says, 'what we're trying to say, just get up an hour earlier and you can make yourself much girlier."

Joking or not, Schumer later asked fans to tweet their no-makeup selfies using the hashtag #girlyoudontneedmakeup, even posting her very own pic. Read more here.
