As a self-proclaimed YouTube-addict, I follow all of the top beauty gurus. Watching makeup tutorials gives me an odd sense of satisfaction. The transformation is splendid! And even though I don t wear makeup, I love it. Weird as that may be. I know everything there is to know bronzing, highlighting, contouring you name it. Well, at least theoretically. If I had to do my makeup, I am sure I would end up looking like a drag queen. But I won't deny that I would love to be able to do my makeup flawlessly!

Women or most women love getting dolled up. We love looking pretty and if a little bit of makeup helps us feel that way, then what's the harm? But the general notion these days is that if you are wearing makeup, you are insecure and that you are hiding your imperfections. (Read: For women, no outings without make-up) 20- year old YouTube sensation, Nikkie from Nikkie Tutorials begs to differ. In a video that has close to 15 million views in just one month, Nikkie talks about the power of makeup. She completely transforms herself from a regular girl-next-door to a diva you would see on the cover of a magazine. Using contouring techniques, she gives herself high cheekbones and even hides her double chin. And with just eyeliner, completely changes the shape of her eyes. But most of all, Nikkie talks about how makeup is a fun way to express yourself and not something to hide behind. In a positive and uplifting way, she tells you how your love for makeup is nothing to be ashamed of.

Take a look at this video and I'm sure at the end of it, you would want to go makeup shopping!
