Michelle Phan has made a name for herself in a huge way with her YouTube makeup tutorials that have amassed 1 billion views in 220 countries. Now, she’s launching her own makeup line called Em that has her fans in mind.

Speaking of her fans, we opened the floor for beauty advice you were seeking from Phan. Get a flawless face with her tips below:

Priming the face before applying makeup will help control oil. You should also avoid using products that have oil in it. You should stick with gel or water-based products. Also: powder, powder, powder and bring oil blotting sheets with you.

You can try Latisse or apply a little Vaseline on the tips of your eyelashes to help condition them.

Since we are in a transitional period now, I recommend you use gel products in the daytime and cream-based and emollient products at night for extra hydration.

With red lips, using a neutral eye shadow will make the eye pop. But if you are looking for a more festive look, gold is a great eye color to use, especially around the inner corners of the eyes. This will make them pop.

My three items would be concealer, a colored lip balm (which can double as cheek stain), and mascara (which can double as a gel liner for eyes).

I feel comfortable without makeup because everyone’s seen me online without my makeup on! I think the best way to get over your fears is to post pictures online without any makeup on. This will help you accept yourself and the fact the no one is picture perfect.
