A beauty vlogger's totally honest response to a fan's compliment is the coolest thing on the internet this week.

On Friday, Gina Shkeda Instagrammed a photo of herself lounging in bed for her 800,000-plus followers.

Paige Matthews, a 19-year-old fan from Massachusetts, tweeted out the photo, writing, "If I could wake up as beautiful as @GinaShkeda I'd be the happiest girl alive #naturalbeauty."

Gina took notice—and gently took issue with Paige's #naturalbeauty hashtag.

Just one minute later, Gina tweeted out a clarification for Paige and any other people out there who believe her look is inborn or effortless. "Girl I have micro bladed brows, lash extensions in and lip injections," Gina wrote. "I don't even look like this 😂 you're flawless."


People are applauding Gina for her realness and positivity.


Because not everyone tells the truth about their "flawless" selfies.

"It kind of blew me away how she was so confident in herself," Rachel told BuzzFeed. "That she could put herself out like that, because not a lot of people do...I realized if someone I look up to can be so confident, so can I."
