  6. LOVED this video :) finally a youtuber that isn't all about the light, dewy look! I feel the same way about not wearing make up in public, half of my friends have probably never seen me without make up! But you have lovely skin and you look beautiful bare faced :)

  9. You look gorgeous with or without make up. That powder and concealer are amazing; I really want to try a Make Up Forever foundation - I'm also too pale for MAC! I live in the UK, we don't have a store and I'm not spending that much on a foundation that I hate!
