Hilarious Everyday Makeup Tutorial Is Painfully Honest (VIDEO)

Looking for a makeup tutorial? The Internet has a cajillion, but if you are looking for an honest tutorial you may have to do some digging.

Well, lucky for you Akilah Hughes is here to tell it like it is. With an establishing shot of her Forever 21 makeup bag and supplies, we immediately know this is going to be good. Because let's get real, your foundation brush is probably $1.50 too.

She shows us how to cake our faces with that weird powder we were bullied into buying at our local Walgreens, and then how to get some of it in our hair.

Two points for Akilah for not opening up her mouth as she puts on mascara -- a true makeup guru.
