"I use this MAC Primer that a lady sold me against my will," Tanya explains in the opening scene.

"She was really attractive and I was threatened by her so I thought 'I'll just buy it because I'm intimidated by you.'"

Who hasn't been there during a trip to DJs?

Whether it's forgetting concealer, using six-year-old mascara, never washing your brushes, rediscovering your mustache - Tanya covers it all.

"I put my foundation on with a brush that's lost it's label - because I got in 2002 and I've never washed it."


"Woh this magnification mirror is bringing a lot of things to my attention," she giggles.

"And here's some footage of me being super indulgent." Photo: Tanya Hennessy

"Isn't it fun when you put on foundation and realise you've got a little mo? It's very apparent with foundation. It just brings that mustache to the surface."

We love that Tanya points out that every girl has their cheap makeup from Coles for $10.49 - the one you use for mundane days when you haven't bothered to fake tan.

And then there's your exy MAC Studio Fix that you save for when you've had a fresh spray tan and you're about to hit the town with the girls.

"I do (contour) under here to give the illusion I have one chin."

LOL. Tanya says it took her about 20 minute to make this video but she thought about it for eight months.

"I hate putting makeup on," Tanya tells Be.

"I didn't want to do it half-arsed but, ya know I am half-arsed.

You'd think I would have made the most of my full face of makeup after the video and gone out - but I took it all off right away."

Turns out Tanya's favourite makeup bloggers are all men!

"I love Jeffree Star and how controversial he is," says Tanya.

"I also love James Charles - the first Cover Girl male model - and Manny MUA. Holy shit I didn't realise all the beauty bloggers I love are actually dudes - I just love how eccentric they are.
