Beauty vlogger Tina Yong wants you to see what’s really happening on your skin when you wear make-up. The result, while not the worst thing you’ve ever seen, certainly isn’t…cute. Yong proved this point by posting a video of her made up face under a handheld microscope that has 1,000 times zoom. And who doesn’t want to see that?
After showing before and after closeups of her chin, forehead, eyelashes, etc., the results are obvious: From afar, make-up looks great. Close-up, especially on hair (brows, lashes), the results looked greasy, clogged and caked-on. “Oh, my lord. I have little spiders for eyelashes” is not something you ever want to hear, let alone utter. But Yong, who has more than two million YouTube subscribers, is very honest with her viewers. She even uncovers a very graphic looking pimple that is nearly invisible to the naked eye.
