A YouTube video showing the incredible power of makeup has become viral.

The video uploaded on NikkieTutorial's page has garnered over 13 million views since its upload in May and has also inspired others to believe in the power of makeup.

In the video, Nikkie transforms half her face with makeup an keeps the rest of it bare to show the true effect of the change.

According to a description on the video, the brave YouTuber wanted to shed some light on make-up shaming.

Nikkie, a professional make-up artist from the Netherlands, noticed that a lot of women were reluctant to admit their love of make-up, reports Mashable.

"Nowadays when you say you love make-up you either do it because you want to look good for boys, you do it because you're insecure, or you do it because you don't love yourself. I feel like in a way lately it is almost a crime to love doing your make-up," Nikkie says in the video.

Inspired by an episode RuPaul's Drag Race where contestant wore half drag/half male make-up, Nikkie completely makes up half her face, leaving the other half bare.

She gives instructions and beauty tips throughout the video, explaining each step along the way.
