On Friday, she shared a morning selfie with over 800,000 followers on Insta, and one particular comment quickly caught her attention.

One teenage fan, called Paige, wrote, “If I could wake up as beautiful as Gina Shkeda I’d be the happiest girl alive.” Followed by the hashtag #naturalbeauty.

Within just a minute, Gina responded to Paige on Twitter saying, “Girl I have micro bladed brows, lash extensions in and lip injections, I don’t even look like this. You’re flawless.”

People are applauding the vlogger’s honesty, and admire how she’s not setting unrealistic goals for young girls by pretending to look the way she does without a little cosmetic help.

One fan responded, “Wow that was refreshing and positive af to see someone plainly admit their natural-look isn’t natural.”

While another said, “Luv you for your honesty. Now that’s real. And beautiful.”

Hats off to Gina for being so open.
