YouTuber uses transformational tutorial video to really illustrate 'the power of makeup'
We're sure glad of the power of some good slap the morning after a heavy night.
("Guys, who downed half a bottle of Jager and then ate everything on the Burger King menu? Oh right, I did.")
But one beauty blogger has used a YouTube tutorial to show the transformational difference makeup really has.
Nikkie, 21, admits she has trouble convincing people she meets on the street that it's really her in her videos, such is the contrast between her barefaced and made-up looks.
"I've been noticing a lot lately that girls have been almost ashamed to say that they love makeup, 'cause nowadays, [if] you say that you love makeup, you either do it because you want to look good for boys, you do it because you're insecure, or you do it because you don't love yourself," she says in the video.
So to show the world that it's really her, and to prove to all the girls out there that it's no "crime" to love doing your makeup, the Dutch blogger filmed her makeup application while leaving one side of her face "raw, unedited, nothing, me".
And it turns out that many really do love makeup (or at least seeing how you can manipulate your features with it) - the video has racked up 9.8 million views in just a month.
Be right back, just got to go practice how to turn these six hairs into something resembling brows in the office bathroom.
