With more than 3.6 million subscribers to her YouTube channel, you could say Lauren Curtis has a fair bit of influence in the beauty sphere.

So it's great to see the well-liked and very funny beauty blogger using her powers for good in her latest tutorial video – by taking on every man who's ever told a woman she should look "as natural as possible... but still really, really pretty with no makeup on. You can't not look pretty".

And lip liner. Never forget the lip liner or your lippie will feather out all over your face and that really won't look natural.
