Popular beauty vlogger Tina Yong recently posted a video on YouTube showing what makeup on her face looks like under a digital handheld microscope.

First, Yong uses the microscope to see what her face looks like without makeup. She shows close-ups of her chin, forehead, upper lip, eyebrow, and eyelashes, as well as a pimple and a freckle.

She then puts on a full face of makeup and reveals what these same areas look like under the microscope.

You can see foundation pigment and pink shimmer covering the skin on her cheeks. Her eyebrows look like they're coated in a gooey substance, even though she just lightly filled them in using an eyebrow pencil. And coated with mascara, her eyelashes look much more textured than you might expect.

Watch Yong's fascinating video below.
