                                        Don't even know how or why I started watching your vids, I'm not into makeup, will never wear makeup, I'm a gay dude but not makeup gay lol...but I've watched enough now that I get the whole thing - you better prime, cut the crease, bake the nose contour - check it out, I speak the language now. It's just fascinating watching you work, and you're so sweet and open and natural (even when you're turning your eyes into fucking strawberries), and beautiful and talented, I totally binged and subscribed. Love from a new fan

                                                      You have better reactions in makeup from people than without. In work force you get treated with more respect.

I started watching you years ago because many of the make-up queens of 2008-2014 were Asian and my eyelid looks could never look like their's. Your face and mine are very similar and it has been your videos which have allowed me to explore and have fun with makeup. You are amazing. Thank you for being exactly who you are. So much love!

                                                                                            • The Highly Soulful Being: Chats with Leah

But like 2 billion percent better because they have so much MORE meaning! It’s like watching completely new videos with...YOU IN THEM. Wooohooo! I’m here for it...and so is my wife! Amazing! Giiiirl you are so 💣..
