Would you ever be able to bare your biggest insecurity for millions of viewers to watch on YouTube? 19-year-old model Cassandra Bankson did just that, creating a makeup tutorial to show other teens how she covers up her severe acne. You'll never believe the before and after shots in this video, which has gotten over 2 million views. Hundreds of commenters have praised Cassandra for being brave enough to show what she looks like in her natural state -- 100 percent makeup-free -- and to tell her how beautiful she is, both inside and out.
Her video also shows how much work it takes for models -- whether airbrushed on the cover of a magazine or expertly covered-up by a team of makeup artists -- to look as good as they do. Cassandra never let her acne get in the way of her dreams of becoming a model, and now, her ability to embrace her flaws to develop true beauty confidence is inspiring millions of fans on YouTube.
