This Woman's Makeup Tutorial Is About A Lot More Than Just Eyeliner

"Now to start off, dabble your eyes with optimism. It's all about your perspective on the world."

Whether you want the perfect, sun-kissed blush or super sharp winged eyeliner, we can guarantee that there's a makeup tutorial on YouTube for you. But a guide to getting truly ready, beneath all those the cosmetics, to take on the world outside? That's a little trickier to find.

Luckily, YouTuber Anna Akana is here with a new way of putting your face on -- your game face, that is.

There is a lot of focus on how women look, and although putting on makeup can be an empowering act, it's important that we don't stop or start there. Getting ready starts from the inside out, and Akana reminds us where in our lives we should have a light touch, and where to apply a little extra.

As Akana writes in the video's description, "The power of makeup is incredible, but the power of you is cray cray."
