As much as we love scrolling through Instagram browsing all the product reveals, skin care shelfies, and beauty inspiration, we admit that it can get a little bit overwhelming sometimes. Seeing the absolutely flawless faces of influencers can get disheartening on days when you just don't feel or look your best. They seem to never suffer from breakouts or unmanageable hair, but instead are apparently genetically blessed (or masters of filters).
Beauty influencer Gina Shkeda recently showed off one such selfie of herself tucked in bed. She had no makeup on, but was positively stunning (see above). Fan and Twitter user @_Pajdelamah reacted to the gorgeous image by tweeting, "If I could wake up as beautiful as @GinaShkeda I'd be the happiest girl alive #naturalbeauty."
We — and much of Twitter — were blown away by Gina's funny and truthful response. "Girl I have micro bladed brows, lash extensions in and lip injections," she told @_Pajdelamah. "I don't even look like this." She added, "You're flawless."
It is so refreshing to see an influencer be honest about their cosmetic enhancements, especially in such a cavalier way. We applaud Gina for her sincerity and hope that more beauty stars follow suit.
