      Teni! You are an amazing inspiration to just be myself and try my hardest to come out of my shell. I have always hated makeup because I never had a good source of direction towards makeup and brands and techniques. And You have been the ultimate hub and source of inspiration and good vibes! Every tip you give in your videos I write down in a makeup journal and literally try at least three looks with each tip. I have saved so many styles of makeup tutorials and would love to literally have the products you recommend. Love you and keep up with the great advice and care for your fans! I am definitely one of them 🙂

      Hi, Teni!
      It’s an NYU student from Kazakhstan. It was awesome to see you today in person and get a great hug!) I just want to say that the way you share your lifestyle through social media and bring tutorials on youtube makes me and likely other subscribers more confident and uplift. I don’t know how to describe it, but I remember watching your videos back in Kazakhstan and getting inspired by your videos and at the same time seeing how humble you are through your posts on social media. Also the video on How to start a youtube channel was helpful as I started my own channel =D 1920’s make up tutorial and My weekend style videos are my favorite, the most I rewatch! Thank you for a meet up today!
      xo,

      Hi Teni!
      First of all you are gorgeous! I have always been interested in make up, but it wasn’t until I came across your YouTube channel that I started to love and have fun with make up. I always have a hard time knowing what brands are good or how to apply the make up. In the past I always used the same make up and was afraid to try anything else. You have taught me so much and I want to thank you for that. I feel confident when I put on make and feel beautiful. I always look forward to your videos. They make my day. I get really excited to see what new make up to try. It’s wonderful to see how much you have grown. I’m sorry to say that I haven’t been with your from the start but I’m so glad I could be a part of your growing success! Thank you again! 🙂

      Hey giiiirl,
      Firstly I want to say congrats to all your success along your path. It’s truly inspirational. I’ve always found you to be so beautiful not only for your looks but because of your humility. I truly enjoy watching you because I feel like you are such a genuine person. I don’t have social media connected during the school year…speaking of school, I started uni last year and I shadowed one of your natural makeup looks from 2014 for my first day. I started uni 2 year late and although it was great to be going, I still felt embarssed and was so so so nervous at having wasted a year and being older than the other kids. After following your tutorial and watching you I felt ready to start my new journey, I looked great but it most importantly helped me to smile and think about the upside to everything. I often think of my first day and how far I’ve gotten and it’s crazy to think that you, although I am no where on your radar, played a huge part in my life. So thank you.

    • Ellie kosky says:

      Just wanted to say how much your videos mean to me. You have honestly changed my makeup life! Every tutorial i click on is amazig and you never let us all down! Congrats on nearly reaching 1 million. You deserve it so much xxxx

    • Anoud says:

      Heyy gurrl,
      First of all I just wanted to say that I love your channel. You are one of the first beauty vloggers that I started watching. I always like to try out the products you recommend and the to recreate the looks you do, and they always turn out to be FIREEE. I can also relate to your skin tone and eye shape and that really rare for me! Teni Hun you are one the most genuine Beauty vloggers, that actually sincerely talk about product. But sometimes it’s hard to splurge on makeup when you have other responsibilities, but from time to time it’s necessary for me to get my dose of new makeup.Love u gurrl! Stay gold and keep up your awesome job!
      Xoxo, Anoud

      Why not give this giveaway a shot by sharing with you the first time i wore makeup. I was in 7th grade and i wore a shimmert bronzer ALL OVER MY FACE, everyone was like”why are you so orange!?” whenever i wore mascara or straightened my hair it was weird for everyone because i didnt have many friends and girls would come up to me laughing at me. I stopped doing it until high school, winged liner was my bestfriend. I didnt do nothing special, i would take some foundation and rub it on my face with my fingers, throw some liner on and mascara and momma was ready! I needed to figure what the heck i was gonna do after highschool, even though i loved art, I wanted to take things to the next level and start doing things for my self. I fell on love with contouring, highlighting, lashes, eye shadows and the success. Youtube and you have shown me all of this. Once I decided I wanted to do makeup my family was so disappointed. I remember my mom saying to me do you really think you’re going to go far with this makeup stuff and it just broke my heart every day knowing that my own family didn’t support my decisions they wanted me to be a doctor or a nurse and it’s just not what I wanted and even though they still tell me that I can’t do it, I can’t do it when I tell people I want to do makeup everybody says it is very hard, very hard but what they don’t see is that I’m driven and I’m motivated and I believe in myself. Can you imagine having your family call you stupid for even the thought of doing makeup for the rest of your life of being a coscosmetolog, pretty harsh. But now I have people coming up to me asking me to give them advice asking me to do their makeup and all I do is give back as much as I can because I knew I was right. The best part is is that you know you’re making somebody else happy and making them feel so confident in themselves and I think that’s why I could never get a job selling makeup because all they care about is selling makeup when all I want to do is give real advice. I think the real reason why I am even writing this is because I think I really truly believe that I deserve something out of the makeup giveaway because I am coming from a family who doesn’t have much and I hustle everyday I want to get to the point to where I can be certified I can do makeup and this can be for real this can be real life not only that but you inspire me to do You Tube and hopefully one day I can be inspiring to others. Although coming this far, i am blessed. ❤

    • Samantha Rausch says:

      Thank you so much for doing a giveaway. I have never won. So fingers crossed!
      I am so happy to have come across your videos. I was a 27 year old who still couldn’t figure out how to properly put makeup on until I found your channel. I am so much better now. Thank you so much for that.
      My top favorite videos are your drugstore videos like the contour and highlight video. It was my favorite because it was finally something that I owned in my own collection (and it actually helped me officially learn to contour after trying for a year)! <3 Since I have yet to have the money for high end. Finally I wanted to add that you're flawlessly beautiful girl with a sweet adoring personality. Much love.

    • Seada Mukanovic says:

      I would be lying if I said I have been subscribed to you since the beginning. I don’t remember when I subscribed, but I do remember a video. Now, I searched and searched and can not find it anywhere. It was a video where you were getting ready for an event I believe and you were wearing a two piece. It was a white large floral print set and you took my breath away. As I think everyone does I started to make judgements, assuming you were like some of the youtubers who are full of themselves, and then I started watching you. Teni, I learned quickly, within a few minutes of that video that you were a beautiful person inside and out. Since then you have given me confidence to rock new looks with your lookbooks, you have made me love myself more by embracing my body and beauty. It is rare to find a youtuber who truly cares about the people who take the time to hit subscribe, yet I know you truly care. As a college student and someone who moved to the united states at the age of 4 as an immigrant, I am always looking to find inspiration in women who have found success. I look up to you and everything you have achieved. It is not easy coming to a country as a child, watching your parents give you the world from nearly nothing. You went against all odds and found your success. You are a role model, not only because of the material beauty you have, but because you have a heart made of gold. Although this is “merit based” I thought I would take the time to thank you for giving me a push on days when all I wanted to do was give up. The world needs more strong and powerful woman like you, and I wish you nothing but the best in everything you aspire to do! You rock!

    • Sandra Reyes says:

      Teni! You have inspired me to embrace myself!! I have been through many ups and downs from depression to sucidility, and your channel has brought nothing but positivity in my life. Keeping this short and sweet! Love you!!

    • I tried really hard to think of a favourite makeup look of yours but to be perfectly honest ,as amazing as they are , I always find myself watching ‘get to know me ‘ type videos or vlogs. I’ve been watching from the very first video and you have just transformed into a butterfly. You have grown so much in your videos, a new found confidence seems to allow you to be more open and comfortable to share more of yourself on camera. I love that. When you giggle at yourself when you make silly jokes , I genuinely grin from cheek to cheek. When you cried about your past financial problems in your snapchat O&A , I blubbed like a baby. When you show emotion it really connects through to the viewers, especially me. I really think that if we were to meet ( although I live in Ireland so it may be hard) we would be good friends. I find myself attracted to your personality. Your heart is so big and your intelligence shines through when you speak. I appreciate the work you put into every single video and know that your a perfectionist and you probably kill yourself sometimes trying to st it right . Don’t think the quality of everything you do goes unoticed. .it really doesn’t. Your blog , in my opinion, is by far the best out there. The consistent material, the grammar, the beautiful layout. It inspired me to start my own blog . It’s very much a work in progress and to be honest I have that fear of reaction. You encourage me to just go for it. Write good stuff and love it and not care what people think. I’m trying to be more ballsy I love your travel vlogs. I watched one last night. They cheer me up when life at home isn’t great. I still cannot get over you swimming with sharks …thats insane but your bravery inspires me . I know I’m rambling now but really Teni , I don’t think you realise how loved you are . You are a sophisticated, intelligent and beautiful women who has a big heart and a kick ass attitude. There needs to be more women like that for girls to look up to. You inspire me to work hard at school / uni and trust God’s plan in troubled times. P.s. I have a habit on saying ‘bomb’ now because of you it doesn’t sound as good with an Irish accent x.

    • Thasneem says:

      So. I’m a 25 year old “ex tom boy”, also small town girl with little to no knowledge about makeup. I started watching Youtube beauty videos and realized there was a whole new world that i didn’t even know about. It fascinated me. I watched a lot of videos by different Youtube beauty Guru’s in a short span of time. But your’s always stood out to me. I felt an instant connection there. I felt like you were my best friend/sister trying to help me explore the makeup world. I watched your videos religiously …some more than 1 time. What set you apart from the other beauty guru’s was your passion for people. You genuinely wanted to help people out and i could sense it. Those traits brought me back to your channel more than anyone else’s.

      Today i own a small makeup bag with items you have suggested and loved. I love them as much as you do. I love playing with makeup now. Its almost like my getaway from the busy life i am leading. Thank You for being an inspiration and thank you for your virtual presence in my life. You’ve made my life a lot better. More power to you. <3

    • Tania Vieira says:

    • Samantha Henick says:

      teni! I’ve been a fan for quite some time. I watch all your videos and love every single one, but I would say my favourite was the brown smokey eye you did recently-ish. It was something different and made me want to experiment and try out something I never have on myself!

    • Hello Teni 🙂 SOOO YOU ARE FINALLY DOING GIVEAWAY:)) aaaaaaaaaand I love it <3 I am following you on instagram,facebook and youtube for a long time. You are so damn beautiful. And your makeup is always so flawless. AND WITHOUT MAKEUP? Damn girl, you don't even need a makeup. But, I understand you, I also adore makeup as you do. Everytime when I go out with my friends, on birthday or when I'm going out with my boyfriend, I always do look on your youtube chanel what kind of makeup should I do. Haha, I know… but you really help me. Always. And I, Dora, love you because of this. Hope you're gonna pick me beautiful <33

    • Sarah Ingoldsby says:

      My six year old daughter loves watching makeup videos. There are so many that are not appropriate so she can’t watch, but I find you to be a wonderful option for her to watch. We watch all your videos together and I think you are just a very kind and talented person. We both have learned a lot from you!! You are beautiful on the inside and out!

    • Lucy says:

      Hi Teni,

      I love love love your channel. I always go back to them depending on what kind of inspiration I need. Your makeup style is something I can relate to compared to other styles, so I love when you post new videos. You also carry yourself well and it really shows in your videos. Respect.

    • Elanna Vega says:

      Hi Teni, ny favorite thing about your channel has to be the variety. While you have gorgeous smokey eyes and bold looks, you also ha e natural and in between. I think it’s great because it can really open my eyes to new techniques and looks

    • Hennesys perez says:

      Teni I love how lively you are, your videos are so refreshing and fun to watch

    • Nicola says:

    • Emma says:

      Teni,
      I’d just like to say that you’re so beautiful both inside and out. Thank you for doing what you do and being yourself 100% of the time whether it’s on snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, etc. You’re a great example to us girls and also a great teacher. Keep doing what you do and don’t ever let the haters take you down. Love you!

      Ps. My favorite makeup look you’ve ever done was the pharaoh look for Halloween! Oh my gosh I was obsesssssed! You’re a true artist❤️

      Xoxo,
      Emma

      Hope your dog is doing okay from the whole chocolate buffet! lol

    • Vanessa elli says:

      You taught so much about make up, love watching your videos every time you upload a new one. You are a hug inspiration when it comes down to learning about make up. Can’t wait to become better at it and do videos myself just like you and hopefully one day I’ll do the same thing you’ve done with everyone else.

    • Tiana Kassis says:

      Hey teni! So I’ve always been into makeup since a very young age and when I came across your YouTube channel I became OBSESSED!! Your channel opened up a whole new world for me. I have this weird thing where i have to watch at least one makeup tutorial before I go to sleep or I can’t go to sleep lol and you’re always my go to! I love your style how you stay neutral but you’re not afraid to branch off and that’s my style so I can relate! Every time I have some free time I always go to your channel and binge watch all your videos and try to recreate my favorite looks! You’ve allowed me to become more confident and just have fun with my makeup looks so I thank you for that!! 🙂

Me and my mom obsess over you and every time I see from snapchat or Instagram that there’s a new video out, she’s the first person I tell and we can just watch them together. Before I go shopping for makeup I compile a list of all my favorite items that you use in your videos and go buy them!! You’ve allowed me to become more confident and just have fun with my makeup looks so I thank you for that!

    • Christine says:

      Hey!!!

      First off, the thing that drew me to your channel the most was your eyebrows. It looks like Kim Kardashian’s, even if it doesn’t look like Kim K’s, I would still love your eyebrows, BEST. EYEBROW. EVER. You are total eyebrow envy. The more I watch youtube the more I realize that a beauty guru who has good eyebrows is a beauty guru that can be trusted. I definitely can trust you.

      But in all seriousness, my current favourite video from you is the 1920s Makeup Tutorial simply because I am in love with the movie Age of Adeline (because I love history and fashion and the film incorporates both aspects in the plot and design)…also, it’s rare that I find a romantic film that I actually like. I’m not only saying all these stuff because of the giveaway, but I really do genuinely think you did a good job on creating a 1920s look.

      Have a terrific day!

    • Hi Teni) Thank you for hosting such a generous giveaway. I’m your big fan and would be honoured to win this giveaway and have something from you) I adore you, your make up and hair style as much as your looks. I’ve seen all your youtube videos more than twice.) You’re one of the most beautiful women in the world, I wish I’d look like you. You’re my inspiration. Every time I’m in a bad mood I review your videos because they inspire me. You have a talent and I hope that one day I’ll find myself in this life too. By the way I’m Ukrainian who just moved to Canada so sorry for my English. I want to thank you for your time, for inspiring me and thousands girls all over the world and for being yourself.

      Hey, Teni! 🙂
      As a make-up nerd/junkie/lover etc. it would be craaaazy for me to not enter this competition LOL, however I love how your going about this give-away and the personal touch your adding to it. I could write a college thesis on my love for makeup, beauty, blogs, and YouTube and your name would come up on top! The first video of yours I ever watched was an old-school ‘brown smokey eye’, which I believe has about two-million views and counting atm, (may I just add I’ve probably made up to half-a-million of them from perfecting this look and crediting it whenever I get asked about my makeup! LOL) As cheesy as this sounds, that video really changed a small part of me, not only did I get to discover the beauty of a brown smokey eye but I also got to learn a lot about you, and your blog MissMaven.com. I think we have quite similar personality traits and seeing how confident you are on camera and in writing has inspired me to be the same. As a young teenager I would always lie whenever I got asked the dreaded question ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’, I knew I loved writing, makeup and fashion but I could never find the courage to admit I wanted to go into a field that some of my family members/friends would look down upon. In many peoples eyes it’s seen as a hobby and not a ‘proper’ career, however looking at you and so many other successful bloggers, as a girl months away from reaching twenty (eeeekkk) I’m not shy now about answering that question as I have so many inspiration men and women to look up to. I’d also like to add that I really love your channel on YouTube because you know you what you want to do and you go for it! I may be wrong, but another thing I love about you is that you have no qualifications in makeup, something I don’t have either, however you make some of the best beauty content online. Teaching others that a piece of paper doesn’t make you a professional. I know I can always trust you Teni to give out authentic content that will make anyone look beautiful. You don’t go too overboard with makeup, and always put an emphasis on natural beauty too, something that inspires me a lot. So I guess I should stop rambling now, although I really am squealing at the thought of Teni Panosian actually reading something of mine!!! Keep doing what your doing cos without you Teni, my makeup would look horrendous, my skincare routine would be non-existent and right now I’d probably be in college studying a boring course because no one told me to follow my passion! xox Miriam

    • Alyssa kreiner says:

      Hi teni! You i love watching you interior design on snap chat! One moment that was unfortunate that stood out was the hit and run of ur car that we spoke about, hope the security camera idea worked. Your so sweet and down to earth and beautiful inside and out. Love you blog and snaps and ig!

    • Alyssa Aligada says:

      Hi Teni ! 🙂 i started watching you about 7-8 months ago 🙂 honestly you are one of my inspiration to do makeup. i know im still young but i really got my courage from you. anyway the first video i saw from you was the natural face routine and i was really trying hard to achieve that hahaha and that video is still my fave bcs its so simple yet beautiful. ever since that video i constantly waited for your videos everyweek. one thing that i like about your channel is that you’re not serious, you just like to relax and talk and be yourself which me & your other subscribers love about you. another thing is that you really share your own opinion about a product and not fake your words. also one of my favorite thing about you is when you had trouble with your eyeliner because its nice to know that a beauty blogger / guru / makeup queen also has some trouble with things. anyway thats all for my entry. I LOVE YOU TENI keep posting in your youtube & your blog. Good Luck & and may your channel and blog continue to grow. xoxo Alyssa

    • Elizabeth Arredondo says:

      Hi Teni, I just wanted to let you know that i really love your channel. I was thinking about my favorite moments in all your videos and i got to say most of my favorite moments were during your Q&A videos. I really love how you get real and vulnerable with us. Like when you give us advice on fiances or when you motivate us to be more confident in ourselves. When you get vulnerable with us, it proves that you are being real. I really commend you for that because i am a shy person and i am so scared of being vulnerable. I am afraid i might get hurt. Throughout your videos i have become more confident and i have noticed i have opened up my shell (in a matter of speaking) a little big. So, i just want to say thank you for everything you do. I also wanted to say to keep doing the great work you are doing because you have no idea how many people you have helped through your videos. Again, thank you for everything!!

    • Lizzie Butler says:

      Teni, you are truly an inspiration. You have taught not only how to make myself feel pretty on the outside but to also feel beautiful on the inside. Though you are stunningly gorgeous, it is your compassion that sets you apart from others. You are real with your fans through both the up’s and the down’s you face. If you believe in something, you fight for it. You give advice to those who need it. The fact that you act like a real person is so comforting in a world that is so self-absorbed and fake. Your goodness and heart has inspired me to stand up for what I believe in, just as much as your videos have inspired me to try a new look or technique.
      P.S. There is one quam I have with your channel; every time you post a video or post or snap, I feel a sudden urge to purchase the item. My bank account does not seem to enjoy it, but oh well. Love you, Teni!

    • Christine S. says:

      Hi Teni!

      I came here to say something about make up, but all I can say is I am so in love with this man I’m with. I’m passionate about make up because it can transform me and make me feel pretty, but no one has made me feel beautiful like he has- with or without make up. I thought when I was single at 33 I would be alone forever, but I was blessed with this wonderful person’s presence. I can only hope everyone in this world gets to experience a love like this. Love and light, Christine

    • Chariya Chan says:

      Teni!! I have been following you for a couple of months on Snapchat and the other day you threw some shade to the “haters”!! Haha. You are so kind and sweet but you stood up for yourself and explained WHY your foundation was darker than your face. It’s because it matches your body, duh! Screw the ugly comments from the haters! They live a sad life and we can only pray for them! Keep doing your thing Teni! You are beautiful and you don’t know how much you help people. I am not the best at makeup but I love to watch your channel to get some tips, tricks and makeup ideas!

    • Daisy Jane says:

      Teni!
      I’m gunna take it back to when you made the video to cut your extensions and made it look so beautiful and simple. Let’s just say it didn’t go as smooth as you made it look haha! I took uneven and wonky hair to a whole new level!
      Thankyou for everything you have posted. Educating everyone makeup is meant to be soft and elegant, enhancing what you actually have. You’re a breath of fresh air.

    • Christina Jones says:

      Teni! ILYSM!!! You are an amazing inspiration!! You have no idea. I literally can’t stop cheesing reading this, Besides being absolutely stunning (forget Kim K girl your in your own lane, and STUNNING. You’ve actually inspired me to start my own youtube channel and encouraged me just to be myself (I’m so shy!!). Life is too short for what ifs. So I’m doing it!! After all, I heard the hardest part is getting started. I LOVE all of your makeup tutorials and would love to literally have the products you recommend to start my channel off with. Love you and keep up with the great advice and care for your fans!
      -Christina G.

    • The first thing that comes to mind when I think of your channel is that it make me so unbelievably happy. A few months ago I was living in Australia (i’m actually Canadian) and was in the midst of ending ties with my best friend. After having moved to Australia together our friendship was put to the test after her other relationships have gotten in the way. I had fallen into a depression, the stress of losing a friendship, being literally the farthest I could possibly be from my home, and alone in a country where I knew one person, I found your youtube channel. After finding your channel, I finally had something that would make me happy! I threw myself into trying out all of your tutorials, and it was the catalyst for realizing that I didn’t have to be unhappy in my situation. Your positive outlook on life, self love and confidence, helped me get out of the house, try new things, and change what I was unhappy about. So even if I don’t win the giveaway, I would like to thank you for creating something that was able to make me smile again, make me get out of bed and try something new, even if it was just a new makeup look in my bedroom mirror.

      I know this one’s a little short, but I just wanted to say that you are one of the few bloggers out there with similar preferences to me, from little things to skin tone to foundation favorites! I trust your opinion on products most of all, and I appreciate all that you do for your channel, your blog, your social media platforms, and of course, your subscribers!

      10e – this is from a 41 year old afraid of criticism and judgment, who avoids joining any type of social media, because of it. I commend you for you bravery, honesty, humbleness and integrity. You are a great example for young and older women alike. I have followed you since your tweeter post on 7/24/15 – “Think before you speak”. You are a women that reflects both fragility and strength and that makes you very admirable. The best to you always. Your 41 year old fan.

    • LC says:

      Hola 10e!
      This is from a 41 year old who is so afraid of criticism and judgement that she has not joined any social media platforms. However, I’ve followed you since a friend showed me your tweet back in 7/24/15 – “Think before you speak”. I hope you continue to be this wonderful, honest and true-to-yourself person. You show us vulnerability and strength and make us admire you even more so. You are truly a great example to both young and older women.

      The best always!

    • Shenice says:

      Hi there Teni!
      Every single video you posted on YouTube I have watched even more than once! Because you have an amazing outcome with your make up looks. And watching your videos is like having my own personal make up artist at home!
      Honestly, I didn’t know that I could love make up and it’s all thanks to you, because your makeup is beautiful , fresh and youthful.
      The one video that I connected with was,your Turks and Caicos trip! Because of the puppies and dogs that were stray . It reminded me of my dog that I saved about 7 years ago. She was beaten and left to die by an alcoholic,abusive man, her owner then! I was visiting my grandmother and found her, she hardly could walk but some how she manage to jump in my arms I took her straight to the vet with my dad. She was just a puppy of 7 weeks old. I’m glad I rescued her. She’s now happy and very loved by my family; and very healthy. Her name is Summer and she a little Yorkie! That’s why I feel connected to that specific video because I know that feeling of seeing amazing animals mistreated and abused!
      And your an amazing person to love animals the way you do! I am so happy that there are many people just like you and I trying to help!
      Xoxo

      Hi Teni!
      I l poo ‘ve watching your videos. I really got into makeup two years ago. After having my son and feeling like I was losing sense of self in becoming a mother and caring for all of his needs, I decided I needed domething that was just for me. Some self-care that made me feel like me. Taking the time to do my makeup everyday has done that. I would love to try out all the goodies you are giving away thank you so much!

    • CHARLIE says:

      Hey Teni Panosian I’ve been a fan of your youtube channel since day 1! You were one of the first people I ever started to watch. I’ve learned sooo much from watching your tutorials. I learned of the MUFE hd foundation and bedellium tools brushes from you! You’ve taught me that you don’t always need to go over the top with highlighting and contouring because most of the time the key to success is to keep things simple…less is more! Besides your makeup tutorials you inspire me to be a better human being in general with all that you stand for, especially when it comes to animals (fellow animal lover :P). To be honest at the moment I don’t have any friends at all so when I ever feel down or lonely I turn to youtube, and watching your videos honestly helps me feel so much better because I feel like I’m listening to a friend talk. In a generation of girls looking up to Kylie Jenner and Nicki Minaj, I instead look up to you Teni, I really do and I’m not saying it to say it. May god bless you an give you continued success and happiness in what ever it is that you do! :3

    • CHARLIE says:

      Hi Teni Panosian, I’ve been a fan of your youtube channel since the very beginning. You were one of the first youtubers I ever started to watch. I’ve learned so much from watching your tutorials, like that the best makeup looks are the ones that are done the simplest. It was through your channel that I came to know of the MUFE hd foundation and bedellium tools brushes 😀 Besides your impeccable makeup tutorials you inspire me to be a better person with all that you stand for, especially when it comes to animals (fellow animal lover :P). To be honest at the moment I don’t have any friends at all so when I ever feel down or lonely I turn to youtube. Watching your videos takes me to a happy place, I feel so much better almost like I’m listening to a friend talk. I hope that when I get older I can be just like you a kind- hearted and beautiful individual. We live in a generation where social media plays a huge part in our day to day lives, I am glad that you are using your platform to touch so many lives in such a positive way. May god bless you an give you continued success and happiness in what ever it is that you do! :3

    • Abigail says:

      You really are such a great YouTuber! You care about your subs enough to do a giveaway and that’s really sweet! I’ve been reading your blog since day one and watching your videos. They have really inspired my interest in makeup and make me want to follow a good path in life. Thanks for being an inspiration to so many!

    • Your Q&A vid April 2015 when you scared the crap out of that girl who asked about LASIK And also, you replied to my comment there and it made my entire week! ❤️ We are pretend friends, in my head. Love you!! Xo

    • Nora Rabah says:

      Hi Teni! I’m a Cornell University student studying biology. I really want to go into healthcare administration! The thing is though, it really sucks when I can’t devote as much time as I want to beauty with studies and all. But beauty and makeup has always been such a passion of mine. I love watching your videos! I hope you consider me for the giveaway. Xoxo Nora <3

    • Elizabeth Blake says:

      Hi Teni! My name is Liz. I am a college student from Long Island and I love your videos! I have only been a subscriber for about a year now but you are one of my fave YouTubers. I love how your videos range from makeup to fashion to room tours. I have only just started to get into makeup and I feel like your videos are great inspiration for me. Your looks are so gorgeous and I have been loving that you have been going outside of your comfort zone but I especially love your natural looks! I am more of a natural makeup girl and I think you look great without makeup! Your fashion videos are also some of my favorites. I love your style! It is so classy and sometimes edgy yet chic. Also, congratulations on almost hitting 1 million subscribers! Yay! You truly deserve it!! Keep up the good work! Stay beautiful, stay true to yourself, and stay strong!

      -Liz 🙂

    • Melissa says:

      Hi Teni!
      You are my biggest inspiration not only because you do amazing make up but as a person. My biggest thing is that you are an animal lover like me…there was a trip you did with tarte and you saw this dog on the beach while the whole group was having dinner and you went out of your way to feed the dog, you have no idea how much that touched me, I was crying like there was not tomorrow also that you foster dogs and are very involved with animals. That’s my dream I’m always looking into volunteering in shelters since where I live I’m not allowed to have animals but my dream right now is to buy a house and my biggest reason is because I want to adopt and foster as many animals I can hahaha. I know your YouTube videos are makeup tutorials and that’s how I met you (on YouTube of course) and let me tell you the way you do your makeup is just perfect even tho on me never looks the same hahaha, but there’s that extra in you as a human being that just makes you extra especial!! Love you tons

    • Haniya says:

      Hiii
      I want to keep it short and sweet but I just love you!
      I enjoy your videos so much just because I really feel you are such a unique youtuber, its literally a pleasure to watch your videos because you have such a relaxing positive aura, its so calming and relaxing, perfect for a stressed student to come home to and watch haha!
      Also I am OBSESSED with your style/ home décor it is AMAZING I have taken so much inspiration from it and it is just perfect in my opinion!
      Thank you for all of the makeup tips and tricks you have taught me and everyone else
      You’re beautiful!

    • Elizabeth Wu says:

      Hey Teni!!

      You have been one of my favorite channels for a long time now. If I have ever had a horrible day or im stressed and feel like I need something to boost me up, I always look for a video of yours. Your personality and overall vibes are so positive and your videos always make my day. Thank you for your videos, you have no idea what kind of affect they have on people, especially on me. It’s good to know that despite all the bad in the world, despite whatever I’m going through, we can still talk about makeup and have fun with our lives. I will always be a fan:) Love you Teni!

      – Elizabeth

    • Silvia says:

      Hi Teni! You are so sweet to be doing this giveaway!! I am inlove with your personality and makeup skills! You inspire me in so many ways! Thanks to you I have started my own little makeup collection! I always try to recreate yourbeautiful makeup looks! Thank you for the love you give to your subscribers ! Love you Teni.

    • Jessie Limonta says:

      Hello Teni! Im 20 years old and a premed student. I enjoy makeup but I was always scared of doing my own makeup because i didn’t know how it would look with my skin tone/eye/hair color. I am hispanic with olive skin, dark eyes, and black hair yet lot of beauty bloggers are either fair skinned, blonde/light brown hair, or have light eyes (or all of the above) UNTIL I MET YOU you were the first (and probably still the only) beauty blogger i can really identify with. Also, if you have any recommendations of other beauty bloggers with similar features i would greatly appreciate it! Sometimes im scared to try bold shadow colors (or anything other than neutrals actually lol) because i worry of how it will look on my skin tone. But then you post a video with a bold color and really calm my fears and inspire me so much! I love neutrals but you give me the that push to go out of my comfort zone every once in a while.
      I would love to win the giveaway but either way i just wanted to say that you are an amazing person and thank you for what you do! You make your videos extremely versatile and educational. My makeup has evolved since watching your videos and (thanks to your NYX wonder stick recommendation) i finally learned how to contour on my own! Thank you for everything and I cant wait for your next video!

    • Sophia Joseph says:

      Hey Teni!

      I’m a nursing student from Illinois who’s obsessed with makeup! I watch your YouTube videos when I need a break from studying =) I think you’re so beautiful & I love your style! One of my favorite videos is when you did your Snapchat Q&A and you just got so real. When you started crying, it made me feel connected. Definitely shed a ton of tears watching you tear up! Loved how vulnerable you were & willing to let us see that side of you! Thank you for your honestly & for always keepin it real. Love your makeup techniques, always so clean, precise, & well done. You’re blessed with amazing talent! Hoping for the best in everything you pursue!

    • Hey Teni,
      I’m a recent subscriber, and I first found your channel when I was looking for eyeliner tricks for my eye shape, and I found yours with the upside-down V technique! I have not tried it yet because I’m terrified of liquid liner so lol one day! I came across another one of your videos on skincare tips and advice – I have crazy dark circles and texture on my skin and I wasn’t sure where to start with anything about anything related to skincare. Your video was the most recent and the most in depth and definitely most helpful skincare video that I’ve seen in a long time! I loved the video so much I started watching the rest of your channel – and I LOVE your interior design videos!!
      I’m in college in Wisconsin and majoring in Interior Design, and I love seeing what other people have eyes for, what style of furniture they gravitate towards and I love seeing how unique each space is to each person. You have so much talent and I love the rose gold pieces and contemporary pieces you’ve chosen for some of the spaces 🙂 I definitely have some similar tastes and I love how timeless and chic the spaces you create are.

      On a random note, when I first started watching your videos, I sat there thinking to myself, “Wow, she and I could be best friends!” We’re so similar and have a lot in common, and I just love your personality and fun takes on different things – and I love how you incorporate design videos to your channel and not just makeup. Definitely one of my favorite channels on YouTube – you don’t seem fake or sponsored, and yet you’re not too real and overshare, and I think that’s really important when you’re in the public eye all the time, you definitely deserve to keep parts of your life private! Love what you do!

    • Tanja Zdraveska says:

      Absolutely amazing and fresh was to organise your makeup!!! Especially if you have the room for it that is! PS my fave video was when you were in new you at the YouTube studios and filming with the other YouTubers, was great and funny to watch!!!! PS hello from Australian!!!

    • Natali says:

      Never really give things like this a shot because it feels like out of all the entries there not much of a shot, although I thought why not give it ago what have I got to loose! So I’m currently a uni student trying my best to make my way up the interior design work filed and during all my loads of studying and whenever i get some free time I love to watch make up tutorials especially when I feel sick of my current routine and want to learn some fab new Teni techniques! My favourite video to date …. even though I’m so indecisive I think it would be the New York fashion week blog! I love all the outfits and it was amazing to see all the fashion and in a way experience it a girl can only dream haha! as well as the amazing looks you wore were to die for! I absolutely loved them all and that tarte store oh my gosh! yes please! and your amazing outfit you wore whilst shopping absolutely adored it! I like to watch your tutorials especially when I’ve got an event coming up I love seeing what looks I can create! I’ve got my cousins wedding soon and walking passed sephora to get to uni every day doesn’t help! I’ve become obsessed with tarte make up palettes and can’t wait to get my hands on one as soon as I can get one! When you mentioned how you thought chloe Morello was Leighton Meester it reminded me of what I had done, I finished school and open my “mums” car door who I thought it was at that time same car and colour and only to realise it was some other lady waiting to pick up her kids from school which i felt terribly embarrassed and since then I’ve never forgotten my mums number plate haha lesson learnt! to finish it up keep making your amazing tutorial vids, your success is truly inspiring!

    • Kristina Bekiyants says:

      Hey Teni :), Love you!!! I’ve been following you for years now. The first time I came across your page I was trying to figure out what to do with my makeup because I was having a terrribbleeee face day (definitely resembled something from a horror film). I literally did and redid my makeup about 50 times until I finally found your page and ended up binge watching every single video on your channel. I was late for dinner but I found my new favorite youtube guru! Ever since that day you became my go to person for any tips I needed when doing my makeup or even for finding products to purchase. From everyday looks, to glam, and even halloween you’ve been an amazing person to depend on whenever I need direction. Your down to earth personality really makes you glow. After adding you on snapchat I got to see your everyday life, your love for your dogs, and just your sweet personality. You’re awesome! I also love that you’re Armenian because I’m Armenian as well and you’re makeup tricks are literally heaven for my skin. Thank you for being you & I wish you success in your acting career! Never give up, I know you have a bright future ahead of you!

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Teni! My fav moment from your channel was in your SnapChat Q and A video when you got emotional about one of the questions! Its so nice to see real women that are compassionate and beautiful and to be able to have a good role model. I love you

    • Faviola Alcala says:

      I just love you. Your modesty. How humble you have been even with all your success.
      Even if I do not win the giveaway, I am still winning because you have let me get to know you and learn from you whether it is from makeup or life. Role model, that is what you are. Xo. Love!

  • Jasmine Abraham says:

    Hi Teni!

    I absolutely love you and how much your channel has been growing! I think you are such an inspiration, especially to those of a more ethnic descent. I myself, am Indian. Thank you for all that you do for not only us, but for the animals out there. I admire that you have been able to foster before. I hope that I too, one day will be as successful as you are!

  • Hibba Javed says:

    i came across your brown smokey eye tutorial and since then i have basically fallen in love with your channel! i love your sense of design and your taste in fashion. you are so down to earth and yourself in all your videos and snaps and it really makes me so happy! I’m currently suffering from the loss of a friend to suicide and your channel/videos help me kind of get my mind off it which i am so grateful for. so thank you so much for just being real and yourself, it makes me so happy!! also i hope one day you can come to australia! much love xxxx

  • Jasmine says:

    Hey, Teni! Hope you’re well! As cheesy as it sounds, I just want to say thank you for your videos and everything that you do via all of your social media platforms. You radiate such positivity and light and it’s really a breath of fresh air watching your video and seeing your posts anywhere. Even though I don’t know you personally, you’ve definitely helped me out by just doing what you do. Whether that be how to snatch my face or just be a better person, I truly appreciate you and hope you continue doing what you’re doing!

    Best,
    Jas

  • Yazmin says:

    Hello miss Teni,
    I have been following you now for about a year and I’m just scared of dealing with makeup. I mostly use bb cremes and bronzer with a little mascara. I know nothing about makeup it’s actually intimidating for me to go and search through all those makeup options it’s like which one is the best? Perhaps I’m just so out of norms of girl things to do. Maybe I can successfully try a tutorial on me hahaha. Wish me luck

  • Jasmine Vega says:

    🙂

  • Jess K says:

    Hi Teni! First of all, I love you and your channel! When I first came across your channel, all I was interested in was your make up. You inspired me to be more creative and gave me an outlet being the first youtuber I ever watched. This was awesome but then I came across more and more videos that allowed me to feel like I got to know you better. I remember a video where you talked about being compared to Kardashians and how you wanted to be known for so much more. That you were greater than just your appearance and what we see on YouTube. This really inspired me to love myself more, to give myself a chance and to stop worrying so much about what was on the outside and work more on the inside. Thank you for helping me love myself with the great things you do in your career. I have always wanted to explore more with make up and YouTube and feel as though winning this giveaway would be an amazing opportunity to start that. Thank you for being you! You are awesome Teni!!!

  • Margloris says:

    My ALLLLL time favorite makeup look along with video of yours is the “Smokey Eye Makeup + Winged Eyeliner” that you wore for a gala in North Carolina using the Chocolate Bar Palette. I have watched this video an endless amount of times (my comment is actually the very first one at the top which I posted a year ago). Anyway! because of this video I have been thinking of getting the Chocolate Bar Palette for a while now and I finally decided to get it and guess what?! It arrived today! I will definitely be recreating this look in hopes that it turns out as beautifully as it did on you. Thank you Teni for all of your videos, I will continue to look forward to watching them xoxo

  • Samantha Lopes says:

    Hi Teni! I love you & your channel. Honestly what drew me to you was your name lol. Sounds funny but it’s true. I’m from Hawaii (I’m Hawaiian & Samoan and a bunch of other stuff) and Teni kinda sounds like Teine (pronounced Tay-Ne/Nay) which is Samoan for “girl.” But yeah. I love it. And your videos.

  • Jaimie says:

    Love you, always Teni! You’re such an inspiration. From your passion for fostering dogs in need to being able to articulate yourself in such a professional manner while still keeping us updated on social media…I don’t know how you do it! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us 🙂

  • Emi says:

    Teni, you are classy and such a great role model for women everywhere! Your work with animals is especially admiring, as you are using your platform to spread awareness. Congratulations on your success! Wishing you much more in the future!

  • Roxy says:

    I still remember watching my very first video. It was back in 2014, you did a look only using drug store makeup. At that time I was a single mother of 2. Very fascinated and Interested In makeup but couldn’t afford high end makeup. But from that one video I was hooked. Been a subscriber ever since. Love you girl!

    Oh Teni!! If you can remember, I started watching your videos from the bridal makeup tutorial that you did with Sonia. I remember loving your makeup and personality and watched how your channel and Sonia’s channel grew. Also, you two hosted a giveaway on Facebook and gave away credit for Lockerz. However, I couldn’t get anything with the points.It was on December 22,2011. I’ve been a huge fan since and that’s why I started doing makeup too! Your have always and will remain my makeup inspiration!! Xoxo Alejandra

  • Jocelyn To says:

    Hi Teni!!
    I just finished watching your YouTube video and I’ve got to say, I am UBER jealous of your makeup collection! I love watching your tutorials, Snapchats, and seeing your Instagram posts. I think you are so gorgeous inside and out, down to earth, funny, creative, and beyond talented! I’ve always loved makeup, but this past year I’veslowly starting to build my collection and improve on my techniques and overall look altogether! All in all, I always look forward to watching your videos and learning something new.

    HELLO TENI! I’m truly greatful for your videos. I’m only 18 years old and have a passion for makeup but I don’t know how to convince my parents I can be successful with this category. Thanks to you I share some of your vlogs and videos to show them that makeup is more than products. It’s about using items to express yourself. Whenever I watch your videos you give me such joy and enthusiasm. You are so generous to your followers and treat us as if we are your family. Thank you so much for all the effort you put in to make each one of us happy! Love you!

    I Love your tutorials, you’re so amazing on what you do! I’ve been following you for a long time already. I want to thank you for all the giveaways that you do because it’s a way to say thank you to your followers!

  • Hadiqa Jamal says:

    Alright I was waiting for this moment , this is my time to shine but with all honesty I swear ! I’m gonna start with saying that my favorite all time video of yours is your “Dark lipstick makeup Tutorial| lipstick tutorial”. Oh wai, No! It’s not this boring, so let me tell you why I like that video. Till grade 12, I always liked makeup but I never really knew much about it. I swear I had no idea about so many different makeup essentials till I really needed to. I had a formal to attend to, a desi formal, I had a light pink dress and I wanted to wear a redish maroon lipstick with it cuz it was just something that I thought would look nice. I, for the fist time in life *swear TO GOD*,searched up a makeup tutorial for a red lip on YouTube. The second video on YouTube was of yours and it was so pretty, you had darkish hair like me- the thick middle eastern eyebrows I have (except yours are more groomed and look fierce duh!) – so I just clicked it. I kid you not Teni I legit recreated the look for the formal (though it didn’t look that amazing on me cuz I was just a beginner at hardcore makeup). So you gold a special place at my heart because you were the first makeup artist I knew through you I found out about so many things, I found about different artists like Desi because of the good girl/bad girl collaboration, I added so many artist on Snapchat. You were legit what got me to this little obsession with makeup I hold lol. I started watching your get to know me video and I realized you’re a cancer like I am, you’re middle eastern like me (I’m slightly mixed though), and you hold so many traits that just makes me feel more connected with not just your makeup but you as an individual. I waited this long to say this cuz duhh I mean it’s a perfect time to tell you how I know you and a tiny winy chance of winning the giveaway *cross finger*. I hope you know me by now cuz I be creeping up on your twitter and IG like ! Well if I honestly don’t even I’m glad I let this off my chest and there will definitely be more giveaways soooo no biggy ! Either way I gotchu girl and I’ll still watch all your videos ! ❤ you’re amazing and stay winning

  • Ashley Baer says:

    I love your makeup tutorials and vlogs!! There is something about your voice that is so relaxing!!

  • Moushmi says:

    You are absolutely beautiful! Your makeup and sense of fashion is always on point. I watch your snaps and youtube video religiously and I’m so happy to see how far you have come. At the end of the day, all I want to do before passing out is watch your snaps and smile. My favourite videos of you are your smokey eye makeup tutorials. You do such a good job showing each steps. My attempt on smokey eyes don’t look as good as yours but I learned so much from watching them. Just love you Teni!

  • Laura says:

    Hi love muff! I love you because you make makeup look effortless and natural. It’s so funny to see my own growth with makeup. I still have one of the first MAC eyeshadow a I ever brought which is a single lime green called “Swimming”. Don’t ask why I chose a bright a** green with absolutely nothing to blend it with, but I was 17 and makeup was so much fun. Walking into MAC or Sephora made me feel like I was Charlie from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. So many pretty colors! Watching YouTubers like yourself has helped me developed my skills exponentially, and for that, I thank you.

    So much love,

    Hello teni,
    I discover you few months ago and since then I been following you and watch your videos on YouTube.. Im always tagging my friends with your pictures you post on IG and they start following you and is so funny because they ask me do you know her personally!!.. And I say no I just loved to share her pictures and videos..she’s just so awesome !! I have learn so much from your tutorials .. Keep on rocking !! Xoxoxoxo

  • Farina Mendelson says:

    Your airbrush makeup tutorial made me want to spend my entire life savings on that kit. Also, you made me go vegetarian and on my way to vegan after seeing how much you care for animals.

  • Nasim Barani says:

    So let me really think about why I began following you first through youtube, then insta, then snapchat! It happened so naturally. Your style of blogging is very natural and relatable. For someone who loves all the newest makeup products but doesnt want to be cake faced at all times, you seem to get it. I love that you snap with no makeup. Its reassuring that even though we all love makeup we have to love our own skin as well. Your simpilcity is classy and admireable. Your social media outlets are little happy places througout my day.

  • Lexie Zimmer says:

    hii Teni, i love your videos!! you are such a happy and up beat person it makes watching your videos always put me in a better mood. My favourite videos of your would have to be your travel vlogs because i just love seeing your experiences. Ive learned so many makeup skills from watching your videos. When i was in a low point in my life and felt very low about myself the techniques i learned from your videos made me feel pretty and really helped me through that. For that i am forever grateful to you!! <3

  • Shelby Vickers says:

    I first started watching you when I saw your video on big sexy hair, which was thee years ago!! I’ve learned so much watching all of your videos and feel like we are friends even though we have never met. I’m extremely happy I came across your channel and I hope to enjoy being apart of it for as long as time is. You’re the best! Keep up the amazing work!

  • Tina says:

    Teni! Love everything about you and your videos. I love watching and learning from you!!

  • Priya Jani says:

    Teni you’re my spirit animal <3 Love you to the moon and back! Thank you for inspiring me to start my own channel, been watching you since day 1. Congrats on the milion xo.

  • Lia Wiltgen says:

  • Sarita says:

    Hi Teni,

    I came across your channel not too long ago while looking for a natural face makeup. I was soon hooked. I am amazed at your ability to create unique makeup looks without it looking like a mask. Also, I share your love for dogs. Please continue to post awesome Snapchat stories! Keep inspiring girl! xx

  • Ammu says:

    Hello from Seattle Teni ..first of all when are you coming down here and doing a meet and greet??:) you are my favorite blogger and I just love your chatty and happy personality so much. You bring joy to so many of us ,I follow you on snapchat too and watching you day after day every day ,now I totally feel like you are family and just like a bff 😀 I used to be so self conscious about myself at one point but one of your videos seriously opened my perspective and helped me rethink and find a happy place ,thank you so much and love you lots xoxo

  • Nicole Cruz says:

    hi teni! My names Nicole. I love your channel because of your make up skills and home decor skills, but i also really love watching/creeping you because of your love for dogs. I have four dogs and they are my world. Dressing them in sweaters to feeding them quesadillas in the morning makes my life so much more fun. I wish i could one day foster like you did. Love the heart that you have, i can see it right through that highlight ! LOL

  • Alina says:

    Hi Teni! Honestly, what draws me to you is your simplicity. You seem like the kind of girl that can be friends with anyone and is super easy going. I love how calm-spirited you are, and how you are always smiling.

  • Pamela says:

    Hi Teni,
    I remember when I first discovered you on YouTube. I was first starting to get into makeup and was obsessing over dewy summer skin. I saw your bronzy, dewy skin video and I was hooked ever since! your voice is so soothing and the way you present yourself is so admirable. you make me want to kick butt and take care of myself and eat healthy and speak well and get organized and be the best version of myself that I can. I’m trying, but as a college student taking care of myself is becoming a mission. I won’t stop trying though. thank you for inspiring me! sending you much love, Pammy.

  • Anastasia says:

    Hey Teni! I would like to share with you my a couple of my all time favourite hair products I think you would love from New Zealand! They are from the brand Kevin Murphy, which is actually an Australian brand. I love his products because they are both socially and environmentally aware and are super luxurious. They are cruelty free (which I know is right up your alley), sulphate free (so it protects your colour!), the packaging is where it can be biodegradable and he uses aromatherapy oils which penetrate deep into the hair shaft – you really feel it in the conditioner where when you go to rinse it out it feels like there is nothing there to rinse out as its all absorbed! Your hair feels like it’s been deep conditioned every time you wash it, yet it’s not heavy and weighed down as its so natural. His products are definitely on the pricey side (here in NZ anyway) but they do last several months as you only need like a very small amount. I have his hydrate me wash and rinse (shampoo and conditioner) and his un.tangle leave in conditioner which had heat protection, leaves your hair silky smooth and is literally the only thing that will untangle my highlighted blonde hair! I highly, highly recommend having a look on his website, I also recommend checking out his anti.gravity lotion for the best volumiser/curl holder potion. His products are my secret to ultra nurished platinum blonde hair xoxox

  • Bonnie says:

    Teni! I love your channel, you are my favorite YouTuber. My favorite video of yours is your Oscars makeup tutorial, I’m planning on recreating that look for my senior prom this year. Thank you so much for your videos 🙂

  • Sahana says:

    Hi Ten,
    Its Sahana, and I have watehed you since you did the gold smokey eye from 3 years ago! I have loved makeup since I was small and now it has gone even bigger. You make me smile because of your gorgeous smile and your gorgeous face. I love Selena Gomez and you remind me of her so much, both beautiful. You have made me grow with my makeup skills and made me happy when I was sad. Thank you for everything beautiful. You have come so far and you have so much to do. Keep up the great work girl!

    Love
    sahana

  • Juliet Dasar says:

    Being Armenian as well it was amazing to find someone on YouTube who I could relate to this much. I don’t know about your family history, but mine came to the United States because of the war and have struggled to get to where they are now. I am thankful that I’ve been given the opportunity to succeed in life. It’s always a pleasure to watch your videos and see a familiar face with a kind heart. Your make up videos are the only ones I truly value, your authenticity shines through and it’s easy to watch one and say “I think I’ll try that product.” Keep doing what you’re doing and perhaps one day we will cross paths!

  • First sorry for my english!! I’m from México and my english its not so good Jajajaja
    I love your channel is so good but i love more your videos of smokey eyes tutorials and your natural makeup girl you look so natural sometimes i think you don’t use any makeup
    THANK U for your videos, blog and social media i learn so much about you, god bless you

  • Veronica Barajas says:

    I’ve never really entered myself in a makeup giveaway. But this time I thought why not, this might cheer me up! Teni I love your videos, and I was really inspired by your Bridal makeup tutorial to do my own makeup for my wedding this April 30, 2016. I have watched that video over and over!! BUT! Unfortunately I was in a car accident the 26th of March and my right hand (my dominant) is badly broken so I won’t even be able to do my own makeup like I dreamed I would. I’ll be stuck with wearing a cast at my own wedding!!! Now I’m just trying to be positive about it and hopefully that’ll make a good funny story one day. Keep up with your amazing work, you inspire us in many more ways than you could possibly imagine

  • Rebekah Cromie says:

    Hey Teni! Hope you’re having a wonderful day/evening. I’m in my final year of school at the moment, and just as many others have, I used to struggle with severe self-love and assurance issues. In essence, I believe it came down to the fact that I hadn’t yet realised what it meant to be truly “beautiful”. I had always thought you needed the nicest skin, longest and most silkiest hair, and so on. It actually took me until this year to feel confident enough to smile in front of my own close friends. When I came across your channel I was in quite a dark period of my life, where I had essentially given up on any possibility of ever being confident in myself. Not only did you encourage me to discover that true beauty lies within who we are as people, as opposed to what we look like, but I was able to find an escape through makeup too. I became more fearless and courageous within who I was as a young woman of God, and I definitely attribute that to your positive influence. I can genuinely say that while not every day is a great day, there’s not one moment I don’t look at myself and am proud of the transformation I’ve made over the years. So I just wanted to take the time to express to you how appreciative I am of all the time and effort you put into your videos and blogs, and for being like the big sister I never had (even though we have never met). Love from Australia, xx

  • Natasha says:

    Hi Teni! love your videos and overall personality. I follow you on instagram, snap chat, and binge watch your youtube videos. My go to makeup looks are inspired by your brown smokey eye tutorial and your strobing video. I love how always look so put together and effortless at the same time. Goals!

    Your snaps give me life, specially when you discuss interior design since I studied design in college so automatically that draws me in :). I also love how you’re so proud of being Armenian. I’m Lebanese and I totally relate to so many of the Armenian things you discuss on snap (weddings, Arabic food, and how people stare up and down. Lebanese people stare SO much too!!!) Also, thank you for always carrying yourself with grace and dignity. I know you sometimes come across negative comments but you always handle yourself so well. It’s really admirable.

    Have a wonderful night, hope you do a meet and greet in San Diego one of these days. You have a lot of followers here!

  • Shannon says:

    Hi Teni!

    I love your channel, because I think you are a beautiful person inside and out. I love how natural and simple a lot of your looks are and your advice for skincare a beauty is so relatable to so many of our lifestyles! I can’t wait to see more videos and the inspiration you bring to others 🙂

  • Maleni says:

    I’ve been subbed to you for a while but my favorite video of yours is your brown smokey eye tutorial. It brings back memories because I was watching it when my boyfriend was fighting with me on the phone and he was like “are you even hearing me out” being all sentimental and stuff but I just couldn’t concentrate because I was so focused on the tutorial. I ended up telling him I didn’t care what he has to say just so I could watch the video in peace

  • Stefania says:

    Hello beautiful! I would like to start off by saying thank you for your channel! I can honestly say I always get so excited when you post a new video and I always love watching your snap chat stories, I always feel like I’m in a conversation with you. Thank you for having such a passion for blogging and helping other women like all of your followers be confident in who we are and to share all your tips and tricks when it comes to beauty and life!

And that you continue to love what you do as it inspires us all and we love watching you achieve your goals. Thank you for being beautiful in all aspects. Thank you for doing this give away! So excited!! Xoxo.

  • Mishi says:

    Dear Teni, I never knew how to make myself good with makeup. I always struggled finding the right products. One day I saw your bridal make up tutorial which was sooo amazing!! And after that I started watching your videos. But then I always wondered how can one afford all these beauty products. I tried to get the products that you list on your page but honestly they are expensive. I have tried using drug store products but it doesn’t give the look you show. I just wish maybe you could have like a give a way one product event every month. Anyways I totally love your personality and absolutely love how clearly you demonstrate everything. You are a role model !! If I win I think it will be a dream come true.
    Love

  • Teni! Your are so amazing to give away things for your fans. I know you’ve worked hard to get where you are that makes you an inspirational woman for us all. Continue to give us motivation and go in with your dreams. You are more then just a beauty but are a family member, and loved one for all those who believe in you. Continue to conquer the world and reach our hearts!

  • Daralyn Holmes says:

    Your channel/Instagram is an absolute favorite for girls like myself who love everything that has to do with makeup but love a more natural everyday effortless and classy look. Your videos are easy to follow and Leave me looking amazing every time I try to recreate a look. Keep Em Comin Girl! #YouDaBest

  • Eman Rachid says:

    Hi Teni!

    My name is Eman Rachid and you have inspired me through tough times! I have never missed one video. I recently was going through an auto immune disease and my confidence level was so low. Every time you would post up a video my spirits would just lift up seeing how passionate you are and just sharing your knowledge of beauty with us girls. It takes someone special to have a gift like that. My favorite video of yours was the Snapchat Q&A, when you started tearing up about how far you’ve come really made me think about myself! We are all living in this world together so why not lift each other up. Anyway I love your content and respect your talent, cant wait to see the success that comes to you from all your hard work! Keep it up! <3

    XOXO
    Eman Rachid <3

    I love how down to earth you are, and how you have such a unique and humble personality. Since the moment I came across you channel, it was like love at first sight haha. but I was so glad to finally find someone with true olive skin tone. You have made me come to realize how beautiful our skin tone is and I finally love it and feel so comfortable in it. So happy for your success and I wish you all the happiness in the world.

  • Alejandra says:

    Love you,
    keep doing what you do.

  • Kristen Autret says:

  • Tiffany Suh says:

    HI TENI <3
    You are the only Youtuber (truly) that teaches everyone how to enhance natural beauty. Whether that is through your skincare routine, natural make-up tutorial or lifestyle vlogs, it inspires me to try out new products or new regime that makes me feel more confident as a woman. Thank you for constantly giving me inspiration. You are beautiful inside and out! xoxo

  • Julianna S says:

    Growing up I was quiet in school, but I was a dancer and after school when I got to go to dance I was able to be myself. One of my favorite things about dance and competition was that I was able to wear makeup and costumes and be the most amazing version of myself on stage. Now as I am becoming my own woman I am able to wear makeup and feel amazing whenever I please. I have learned from watching YouTubers and bloggers like yourself to love and appreciate makeup as art and fun and self love. I love everything about makeup and I love people like you who encourage self expression. Thank you for all that you do for the beauty community

    Xoxo

  • safira karmali says:

    hey girl! I found your channel through the turks and caicos video you uploaded after your trip with taste! As soon as I watched that video I went through and binged watched roughly 3 hours of your videos! I just loved your personality and how open you were with your audience. I love that you are willing to share your knowledge with thousands of people and help them become a better self. Your channel is full of passion, love and encouragement, and i’m so glad I came across your channel! I can’t wait to see what the future brings for you in the future xo

      Your the best. Kind person. Great things will come your way. Congrats on all the subs.

  • Amanda marie says:

    I got my first prestige makeup product 2 years ago. I went to google to look for ideas on how to use it as well as how to put makeup on being it my first attempt at it. I stumbled across your YouTube page after a few clicks and not only did I find so many good tips and tricks your videos make me feel like I’m talking to a girlfriend about makeup and not like a instructional video I see in my classes. Your latest videos about the vice reloaded pallet made me glad I had gotten it in January and I do more looks with it now then I ever could’ve thought of!!
    Thanks for being so informative and so down to earth! I never miss a video of yours and I’ve learned so much from you that I now help others when they have makeup questions. Thanks girl!

    I love how your makeup collection is so clean looking!

  • Brittany Soto says:

    Teni, one of the most memorable things about you is a post you posted on Instagram and people were asking you details about makeup and you responded to them immediately after asking. It’s a simple thing but you have shown that you’re like “US”, your followers. We can relate to you and that’s what most of us makeup lovers want, someone we can relate to and someone who can help and inspire us and you’ve done that!

  • Destiny says:

    Hi teni ! I am so happy for all the success youve been granted with your youtube and almost hitting a million! Daily your are an inspiration to me to keep doing what i love .

Never stop being you , your truly amazing and talented at what you do 

  • Ivy says:

I love love love you ❤️❤️❤️❤️, you are amazing and I hope that one day I can be just as successful as you are.

  • Stephanie Torres de Hernandez says:

    I don’t want you to feel sorry for me or anything but since you posted make you laugh or cry here is a littl e bit about me and whats been on my mind. I recently lost my husband unexpectedly 4 months ago to a pulmonary embolism.. I’ve left felt so much pain as I have been feeling for the past 131 days. As i was forced to release 27 balloons into the sky to celebrate his bday as his first in heaven i couldn’t bare to even have anyone sing me happy bday on mine, let alone eat cake.. God has been my complete comforter and rock. He is picking me up day by day.. YouTube videos have provided me with a sort of shelter, like i get to be fixated into these perfect lives (or so they seem).. its strange and yet somehow satisfying that ive learned to cover my dark circles and puffiness through the art of makeup.. I know it might not be what you expect but i just felt like releasing a lil bit of my sadness… anyways thank you for this platform & the giveaway..

    God is good

  • Damaris Telbisz says:

    Hi Teni! I just wanna say that I’ve loved your videos for a while and just you as a person in general! You have such a genuine heart and anytime I watch your videos I just feel reminded to be the best version of myself and to go out and love others. As someone who’s been a type 1 diabetic since the age of 10, beauty has always been my happy place and in the times it gets most stressful I find myself either watching your videos or doing my makeup! Regardless of whether I win or not I just want to thank you for the impact you’ve had on me and so many others! ❤️

  • Janet Villalobos says:

    I started my makeup journey a little over a year ago. I was in the darkest place I have ever been in. I am married with 2 small children I am a Nurse and a wife. When I found out my husband cheated on me my whole world came crashing down everything I thought I knew and everything I thought I had was gone. The pain is difficult to explain but you fall into a black hole and it feels like you will never come back from it. I am a strong woman but my brain couldn’t handle it so I had to get help and started taking meds. About this time I started watching you tube videos you were one of the first people I watched. You have the kind of peace that just emanates, you classy style and chic yet simple way of living was something I wanted. Thank you for being there for me in the most difficult time of my life.

  • Amelia Francesca says:

    Hello Teni!!
    Honestly, what draws me to your videos (apart from the given – great content and amazing filming views) is your voice. Whenever you do voiceovers or a chitchat tutorial, i find it very soothing to listen and continue watching your videos. Your voice is the perfect comfortable pitch and tone and it’s very very soothing to just watch 10 over videos at a time.
    Besides that, i feel like you are very genuine and down-to-earth with your followers and subscribers and i’m really happy i stumbled upon your makeup tutorial video. Ever since, been in love with all your video and content!!
    I hope you’re having a wonderful day/night. I can’t wait for your future videos and I hope to meet you in person someday!

  • Stacy Linn says:

    Hi Teni! I love many things about your channel, specifically that your voice is so calming and that you have stayed genuine throughout your youtube career (I also love that we both have dark hair and eyes!). My favorite video is your get ready with me 30th birthday (I just turned 30 a few months ago as well. Even if you don’t pick me I want to thank you for taking the time every week to post videos. Watching your videos throughout my pregnancy made my days better. I am also a clinical therapist and some nights are rough at work and sometimes just laying in best and watching your videos can be very relaxing.

  • Ivana says:

    Teni, you’re such an inspiration to me and so many girls. You’re beautiful and talented and a very good role model. Even if I don’t win this give away, I still wanted to take this chance to thank you for giving back, and your tutorials and everything else you do for your viewers. Thank you and I love you!!

  • Allysa L says:

    Hi Teni! I love watching your videos and I am so happy to see how far you’ve come on your beauty journey. You are such an inspiration to me and so many others and I just want to thank you for all of your advice on makeup, beauty, or just life in general. When I’m having a good or bad day, I love seeing my youtube notification pop up saying that you’ve put out another video. Your looks are absolutley gorgeous and I also love getting to be apart of your snapchat fam. Keep doing what you’re doing girl because you are definetly beautiful inside and out! xoxo

  • Mercedes says:

    Hi Teni,

    I came across on a you tube video you where getting your makeup done by Sona Gasparian ever since then I have been hooked. I love that you are classy, smart and beautiful amongst other things you represent women well. I always tell family and friends to watch you because you give great reliable tips and tricks. Love all your videos because they are different but more on the natural side which works great for every day life, and once in a while a special occasion I know I can count on your channel for inspiration. You are amazing and inspiring and will look forward to anything that comes from you.

  • Jen H. says:

    Hi Teni!
    I’m a little late to the YouTube game, and only started watching last year. But you have been such a great person to watch, not just because of the makeup content, but because you truly do inspire.

    Thanks for the many Teni binge watching nights and for many more videos to come!

  • Federica Moretto says:

    I’m so proud of you, Teni! I follow you since the beginning and I appreciate the fact that you’ve always been the same sweet and talented person! Love you:)

  • Deanna says:

    I usually subscribe to people who have similar coloring to me because I think their tutorials can be more “relatable” for the look I’m trying to achieve. So originally that’s why I subscribed but then I just loved the quality of your videos! You treat them as a profession and you always look classy. Whether you are showing us how to do a simple wing or an 8 shadow look, you always break down the steps so nicely. Keep it up!! Looks like a great giveaway!

  • Alyson says:

    I remember sitting in the doctors office and I had just received the news about my having Lupus and why my hair was falling out; sort of in shock, I took to my phone and scrolled on IG,
    stumbling across your page in the popular feed and it was a simple makeup look of a brown smokey eye, nude lip, effortlessly glowing skin.
    I thought for a moment, god she’s so lucky, so perfect. Then I read a post a while later about you wanting to gain more weight/not be super thin and it made me realize that we can’t convince ourselves that our life isn’t as beautiful as the next persons and that we’re all in pursuit of our ideal selfs.

    I have and will continue to remember this simple lesson each time I watch a video, read a blog post or see a photo of yours! <3

  • Tatyana Alajajian says:

    I needed a 1920s look for a Gatsby garden party being held at Toronto Spadina museum and saw your 1920s makeup video.

    Needless to say, I was the bees knees, the cats pajamas, the dapper flapper. No one could out-dap the flap out of me. My face was the best dressed in all of East Egg, all thanks to you!

    <3

  • Kelly Fong says:

    Hi Teni! You are my inspiration for how to do makeup. Your eyebrows and eyes are total goals! I love watching you do your makeup tutorials because it is so satisfying to see such beautiful and intricate techniques. Your skin is flawless even without it! I learned a lot about how to do smokey eyes from your knowledgable videos! I love your personality and will continue to enjoy future videos from you!

  • Annaa Shariff says:

    Hey Teni! You are an inspiration to me and I look up to you! The way you aren’t afraid to show how your skin actually is and how honest you come through videos. I love watching all your foundation routines whether its for the spring, summer, or winter. You have also taught me to love the way I am through your videos and that has helped me better myself. I wait throughout the week just for your videos no matter what it is. Keep up all the work you do and make more videos just being true to yourself.

    Love,
    Annaa

  • Kiara says:

    After the party , is the hotel Lobby !
    I remember IGNITION by R. Kelly too lol
    Love ur tutorials! Always so natural and stunning!

  • Camellia Mata says:

    Hi Teni! I just want to say that your brown smokey eye video is my favorite. I feel like I’m stuck in a rut…the after college crisis. I graduated last May from college with a biology degree. I then took some time off to go to Peru and spend time with my Grandparents. I was gone for six months and now I am back in the states. As the days pass I start to think about my future. I’m having a hard time deciding on what to do next. My plan was always to attend medical school. As a child my grandfather would take me to his clinic and that sparked my interest and love for medicine. While I was in Peru I was also part of a medical campaign in the sacred valley. As much as I love medicine I have fallen in love with research. I was able to do research with my professors during my undergraduate career. I found a master’s program that has a microbiology option. It has really caught my attention and now I’m stuck on deciding if I should put medical school off for anther year to get a masters degree or forget about the masters and apply for medical school. This stresses me out everyday. It’s hard to get it off of my mind. YouTube is a nice distraction from my worry. Watching your videos and the vidoes of other beauty gurus helps me get my mind off of it. It’s like going to another place mentally. Thank you for making videos and I hope you continue to grow and have more success!

    Hey Teni!!! I love your videos so much it’s not normal. I love how funny and genuine you are and you’re just beautiful. I learned so many things from your videos and can actually do some decent make up all because of you. You really helped me raise my image of myself and I can’t thank you enough.

  • Charlotte says:

    Hi Teni! Love your channel, blog, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and snapchat! I love that you’re just so honest and relatable through every angle of social media. I admire that you stay true to your followers and viewers, but at the end of the day, that you are true to yourself. I admire how consistently hard you work and it shows in your content. Love you Teni, ❤️

  • The first time I came across your channel was when you posted workspace tour. Ever since that day I subscribed immediately and started watching your videos nonstop. The workspace video actually inspired me so much since I am planning on redecorating my room soon and starting my own youtube channel. I love your makeup tutorials & your style ! I’m so glad I came across your channel, thank you so much ! Keep doing incredible youtube videos & being such an amazing person !

  • Samantha Alexandra says:

    I never knew about highlighting or how to properly use bronzer until I watched your Summer Bronze Glow Makeup tutorial! It was absolutely AMAZZZZZING! The glowy look is perfect and I always refer back to it. I actually went out to buy the NARS Albatross highlighter and the golden/white shimmer was beautiful on my skin tone. I have Coachella coming up and this look is going to be my go-to look. It is perfect for the festival occasion. Thank you for always making such great and fun content, you are awesome!

  • Monique says:

    Teni,
    I love your channel whenever i feel sad or stressed i look at your videos they make me so happy and your so funny and a great makeup artist. I love makeup but i dont know how to do my makeup lol but im getting better from watching your videos ❤❤

  • alexa lucero says:

  • Ivana says:

  • Nicole K says:

    Thank you so much for a such fresh easy fun makeup collection and thank u for wanting to giveaway products to us !!!

  • Emma says:

    Teniiiii!!! I found your YouTube channel about a year ago and I immediately took so many screenshots of your videos because I also have olive skin tone (and have long black hair only that I’m mexican but you and I can pass as sisters and I take pride in that–I know that’s a run-on sentence but please don’t DQ me for that) so it was so PERFECT to watch all your tutorials. Since finding you, I’ve gone broke a couple of times because I HAVE to go purchase the make up items you use on your tutorials. What’s great about having similar skin tones as you is that you’ve alrea done the foundation matching for me! I buy the color # you use and I don’t have to struggle with matching myself! Lol Seriously, you have no idea how helpful that is. Thank you for that. I also enjoy playing your tutorials and doing my makeup as you go. You’re my guide. I know chances of winning are slim but I still thought i’d take the opportunity to tell you how incredible your channel is. I hope you plan an LA meet up as well. I was hating on the NYC girls and your mini meet up with them lol (in a non-real-hating way). Thanks for all the tips and for making me laugh during your snapchats 🙂

  • Juni G says:

    Hi Teni, first and fore most I love your name. you’re so gorgeous and such an amazing girl. I enjoy watching you very much. I love the way you carry your self, so classy, cute, and unique not to mention your beauty! I really enjoy your channel and there is so many videos it so hard to choose from but definitely some of my favs are, your summer bronze glow makeup, bronzed wing liner, your wing liner tutorial for slightly hooded eyes changed my artistry on my clients. how to apply false lashes, and of course your highlight and contour videos are just some of my all time favs. Thanks for being such an inspiration and such a great and genuine person. xoxo

  • Hi Teni I love following you on Snapchat and all your other social media accounts. You have great style, your gorgeous and I so talented! I wish you the very best with your success 🙂

  • Desirae says:

    I’m sitting here at Denny’s, while my food gets cold, typing and re-typing what differentiates me and everyone of these beautiful people and why I would love for you to choose me. I love your channel (obv) you’re so personable and genuine in what you do and who you are. I feel like Youre actually talking to me when you snapchat! You’re so naturally beautiful and goofy lol I love your channel and your insta and your snap and love who you are! Goodluck picking a winner and keep making amazing content!!! You’re otherworldly

  • Lilphnx says:

    I loved how you organized !!!

  • Victoria B says:

    Hey Teni!

    So my first hearing of you and your channel, was through a friend of mine. We used to spend nights gawking over your instagram and how absolutely stunning you are. As soon as I watched one youtube video I was hooked! They are so thorough and easy to follow, (the cleopatra halloween makeup was a hit)! I am a professional dancer and choreographer in LA and need to have dramatic and natural looks for everyday and for auditions and casting calls. I know you’re an actress and know about that life! Makeup is expensive and hard to keep up with but I try my best. You are so inspiring and real, I love following you on Insta, Youtube and Snapchat, you have such an amazing life, I hope you realize that and realize that you do so much for others. We all appreciate you girl!! xoxoxo

  • Josie Dominguez says:

    Hi Teni! I’ve loved your channel for a long time now. I’m lucky enough to say i met you, even though it was briefly. (Women’s bathroom @wedding, lol) you’re much more beautiful in person and you seem to be so humble. Keep up the good work. You inspire so many. You’ll continue to have a loyal subcriber here!

  • Maddie alford says:

    Hey teni!!!!
    You totally inspire especially style wise I love how you or everything together I am a young mom of two in school and I swear I love vicariously through you and you clothes!!! I love how you stay true to yourself in all aspects that you show us you are amazing and I wish so much love, happiness, and success

  • Teni, I have been a subscriber to your channel for about a year and a half now and instantly felt a connection to you with the first video of yours that I clicked on. You have shown me so much about beauty in that time span; how to do smokey eyes, contour correctly and the proper steps to a seamless skincare routine. But more than just the outside beauty, you have taught me more about inner beauty. When I watch your videos I can see how sweet and kind your heart is. I remember in one video, it may have been a get to know me, you mentioned you loved Lord of the Rings and the show Wild Russia (when it was still on) on natgeo. That made me lol because I too am/was obsessed. In the same video you said how one of your favorite authors was Malcolm Gladwell, I was kind of surprised to be honest because I thought I was so nerdy for loving him. Those things made me appreciate you so much more.. Being an intelligent women with drive and dedication is much more important than the type of make up you wear, and for me you completely embody that 🙂 You have so much depth and passion and I don’t find that among many of the beauty gurus on YouTube so your presence is so refreshing. You are someone who has time and time again shown your independence and belief in yourself to fulfill your dreams, and the world could use more people like you to positively influence us. Especially young girls today. You are an inspiring role model to your YouTube community, I hope you know that. You even inspired me to start my own blog. It makes me happy to refresh my subscriptions page on YouTube and find a new upload from you. You are an amazing person with an undeniably beautiful spirit and a gorgeous face to match. Thank you for being unapologetically yourself in a world that wants nothing more than to change people and take away their originality, Teni. Keep on being the GOAL DIGGER that you are, I know even greater things are to come for you in your future :). XO’s – Lauren Andros

  • Diana Cisneros says:

    Where do i begin!? I have been following you for about 2 years and have recreated almost every look from your youtube channel! Cleopatra was my fave:) My stress tends to keep me up at night, and I can’t tell you how happy I am that I have you to keep me company lol. I don’t connect with another beauty expert like I do with you.. thank you for all that you’ve taught me❤

  • Alejandra says:

    Hi Teni, you were the first makeup tutorial that I see on YouTube, and I’ be been a fan since then, I really love the way to try to make every makeup tutorial so wearable and that sweetness you put in every single video you make, and i really love that you always show your true self like no matter to show your face bare a pimple, you are so honest. And thanks to you I finally could make a cat eye by myself! I own you everything I know about make-up. God bless you always!

  • Angelita Rocha says:

    Just knowing that you might read my comment makes me so happy!! Out of all the you tubers your my favorite. Please know that you are more than a you tuber to us , Teni you have become such a inspiration for many us. I wish you nothing but love and blessings! Thank you Teni✨

  • Jacqueline Rivas says:

    Hola Teni! What I love about your channel? Truthfully, I love your personality. Not all the you tubers or the the people on social media sound humble. I love that you’re you! As crazy as it sounds, I appreciate that you seem to be so genuine and good hearted! I started following you because of your Instagram ❤️

  • Noemi Viramontes says:

    Hi Teni,
    I found your channel one night I was grieving over the loss of my brother.
    And it was like cheesy but love at first sight with you! I believe everyone has a twin somewhere and you’re mine except wiser I don’t look like you by any means but it’s the personality and the way I connect with you! And I feel like you’re an under rated guru within my group of friends, Not saying that you aren’t successful because you are!
    So my little memory is I actually dreamt that you did my makeup, and I was FEELIN MYSELF Yas, lol. We were just having a girls day and YOU WERE DOING MY MAKEUP lol I couldn’t get over it, I went to a wedding the next day and instead of music playing in the background I had your videos and I was like conversations with you to a point my mom was like who are you talking to? And I pointed at the Tv like Teni duh, haha. Love you girl❤️

  • Ashley Moss says:

    Hi Teni! Even though I love all your videos I’d have to say that your travel diaries are my favourite. They give you a glimpse of ways to stay glam while traveling to a variety of locations, while showing the beauty of the places of you get to visit. They also help tide over wanderlust for us viewers in between travels! As well they best showcase your personality and you can feel a more personal connection like with the stray dog in Turks and Caicos. Thank you for the inspiration! 🙂

  • Laura Sofia Vazquez Alvarez says:

  • Katie Hammett says:

    The first tutorial I watched of yours was the video of you and Sona, each of you both doing you own makeup sitting side by side. My first thoughts were of the typical nature of anyone who watches your youtube videos/tutorials, “Wow. She’s a bombshell!.” But as time went on, and as I would eagerly await your next upload to pop up on my subscription feed, I was pleasantly surprised to find that you weren’t just a beautiful face. You were much more of the girl next door. Beauty and brains. Someone who enjoys being somewhat of a nerd. 😉 Very well spoken, well read, articulate, and deep woman. It became very clear that you were someone with substance and depth. And in complete truth, it made me enjoy your tutorials that much more. I felt a lot of respect for you as a person and as an independent woman with big dreams and so much ambition. Most of us are gaining knowledge in some form. Be it owning your natural beauty, to feel confident and comfortable in your own skin, or how to properly apply and blend eyeshadow. I think it is easy to dismiss these tutorials and a girly hobby. But in reality, it’s so much more. As cliche and corny as it may sound, you are changing lives with each upload. You are reaching someone who doesn’t feel passion for living their life, or someone who feels alone and without big dreams or hopes for their future. I was once, not so long ago, one of those people. Finding beautiful, inspiring women, doing this amazing thing on youtube teaching their viewers ways of feeling their most beautiful and confident self, put the passion back into my life at a time when I most needed it. At that time I was in a very dark place. And finding this outlet and true art form of self expression, gave me the willpower and drive to become a makeup artist. I look forward to each day, each client, each life I am able to touch and bring joy to in however many ways that I can. THAT, is what makes these videos you film so incredibly important. The domino effect that you have on people is so incredibly powerful. Never underestimate the role you are playing in so many lives all over the world. Because what you have to bring to the table, Teni, is priceless! I truly, from the depths of my heart, hope you go as far as this journey of life can possibly take you. You’re a pure soul. Beautiful inside and out! Thank you for contributing the wealth of knowledge and empowerment to us all! <3 Katie xx

  • Maria Cucu says:

    You are stunning, girl! I love you! And your dogs 😀

  • Vana Er-Sahakian says:

    Hi Teni!

    Fellow Armenian from Glendale here! haha Been following your social media accounts for a while now, back when you used to film in your old room with the bright blue walls! What differentiates you from all the other bloggers, youtubers, etc is how real you are. I’ve seen your sensitive side come out in a few of your videos, and seeing you tear up when you talk about something personal makes you so much more relatable. You’re more than just a pretty face that knows how to do bomb makeup. And don’t even get me started on your love for dogs and all animals actually. #heart!!! Major respect for fostering all those fury babies and making sure they end up in a happy home. All your videos are amazing but my favorite is your brown smokey eye from a couple months ago and your first ever contour video!!! You’re a rockstar

    Vana

  • Salma Huesca says:

    Your channel has honestly opened up my eyes to many other brads of makeup , you have obviously taught me your ways to the makeup world (: your one of my favorite youtubers . I love your passion for makeup &’ I can never wait till you post another video . I love you ! Hopefully you at least get to read this ! Good luck to everyone !

  • Eimante Kubiliute says:

    You were the FIRST youtuber that I subscribed to on youtube, and since then I watch ALL of your videos as soon as they come out 😀 You are the reason I started obsessing about makeup and I thank you for that 🙂 Love you!

  • Irum says:

    Teni I’ve been following you since back in 2012 when my sister got married. I was helping her look for makeup ideas for wedding events and we came across your gold smokey eye tutorial (yes we totally had the makeup artist recreate it!). And my favorite thing about your channel still are your makeup tutorials. They are always very instructive and informative, but over the years I’ve also come to really love you for your general daily makeup philosophy. Many times I’ve heard you say how you don’t contour all the way to your nose because you already have an angular face or you don’t fill in your brows too much because you already have strong ones. I feel like now with ever more makeup products and trends people use them just because they’re there. So I appreciate and find your take on makeup to enhance individual features and to always customize it to your own needs really refreshing.

  • Chiron says:

    Your makeup storage has really inspired me to organize mine better. Thank for the ideas and inspiration!

  • Ashley C says:

    TENI

    Regardless of the giveaway, and I’m sure you’ve heard this before, I think what makes your Blog and Channel so great is the fact that it’s true to you.. You keep it real with us. You are consistently down to earth and seem so personable, as if we were really in the room talking to you. I feel as if a lot of bloggers/vloggers/etc nowadays get so caught up in the moment of their success (success of which there is nothing wrong with!) that we seem to loose them & their personality in the mix of all the content that is being put out. Not many people stand out anymore. There are too many people today that loose that personal touch, and I’m glad to say that you keep that through all of your platforms. I may not be actively posting throughout all of these platforms personally, but I am always active, regardless. You keep things fresh & real, and as a viewer and reader, and I think that’s what we all appreciate most. It’s a breath of fresh air. So no matter who wins, I thought this would still be a good opportunity to let you know 🙂 Keep it up, girl!
    xx

  • Alyssa says:

    Your YouTube channel is honestly one of my favorites out there. You are so real and down to earth on every subject. There’s a sincerity on your channel that is hard to find. My favorite tutorial of yours is probably your winged liner tutorial because it’s so easy to follow and informative. I know it’s a pretty basic one, but it really has helped me on my journey into makeup. I just want to thank you for putting out great content and being a genuine beautiful soul. Keep on keepin’ on!

  • So bummed I’ve never met you but you are truly an awesome being. So kind hearted and I love watching your snaps and tutorials. I will keep this short. You are gorgeous and so fun spirited and talented. Not that long ago I lost everything I own. Literally everything. Im having to start over in life right down to the basics. I would die to win makeup I love it so much and can’t really afford even drug store makeup. I love your passion and I wish you the best with your success. You deserve to stand out you are so unique. I feel like I can relate to you even though I’ve never met you. I’m truly a big fan. oxoxo

  • Stefani F says:

    You brought me into the youtube makeup world!

  • Lauren Nakabayashi says:

    Your neutral eye looks are life! I’ve also been very attracted to your channel because of your love for animals. My animals are my LIFE and I love that you have that same passion.

  • Lilly says:

    Hey teni! My favorite time was when you replied to my comment and had a mini conversation on one of your valentine videos I believe it was.i even told you how meaningful that was to me because many youtubers forget that viewers are their feedback and a big part of why they’re so popular and a lot of youtubers out there forget that. But you’re so true I always tell people to watch your videos because I feel a connection actually with you and we like literally a lot of the same things from make up to food,animals and music. It’s nice feeling like you can relate to someone who inspires you specially now in the world of social media where you can become “friends” with someone across the world. So you replying to me and continuing meant a lot. Thank you teni xoxo

  • Daine Estaris says:

    Hi Teni! Congratulations! I can’t believe you’re almost at 1m! I’m so happy that you are getting the acknowledgement that you deserve and more. Growing up I’ve had terrible skin, and although it’s not perfect now, your channel has been a place I knew that I could always watch and not only learn makeup but also gain the knowledge of accepting myself as I was. Thank you so much for being you and creating this platform for everyone out there who wants to feel beautiful, not only from the outside but also on the inside. Wishing you more blessings to come and for more people to find a gem like you! ❤️

  • Shelby says:

    Hi Teni
    I have been watching your channel for the past couple years. It has grown beautifully!! I am 45 year old mom of 3 and starting my own YouTube channel soon about being over 40 and what to wear and makeup and life help….since I have 3 crazy kids 14-9. I have a lot to offer. I get so inspired watching you and others and wish back in my 20’s they had this for me. I would have been so excited! So I get to watch all you young girls help others thru makeup and clothes (I do wish I was young again) but help me feel younger than I am:) my 12 year old daughter thinks it’s great that I watch all of these channel… She wants me to experiment on her with all my makeup! Lol my fav tutorial from you is probably the Charlotte tilbury one that you did. I am soooo I love with her line! It’s great for mature skin! Keep up the great work Teni!! Cheers!!

  • Leiloni Montano says:

    I love your channel. Your videos inspired me to keep going even if your not the best at makeup. Practicing and learning is what makes you better. I’m only 17 I remember at the age of 5 I would get into my moms makeup and put what I found on my face and I loved it. Slowly I’m learning the beauty of makeup. It’s one of my hobbies I bet I can use a bit of more work and technique. My dreams of becoming a MUA and a dance teacher I will never give that up til my dreams are complete. Including the promise I made to my mom.I lost my mom at the age of 7 and she knew I was something special I was so talented. I thank you and other MUA’s for inspiring me to try even if it’s not perfect we all start at some point. I would love to be chosen as one of the giveaway winners. Even if I’m not chosen I’ll have luck some day. (: May god bless you for showing young teens and me that makeup is an art.

  • Linda Ibarra says:

    Dear Teni,
    You are such a positive and smart person. Your positivity inspires me and everyone else who follows you. You make me want to be a better person, and set higher goals for myself. Because of you, I want to achieve my dreams of getting my Bachelors degree and owning a home. I believe in myself more and, I am excited about my future.
    I love all of your videos. You teach everyone how to enhance our features without wearing a lot of makeup.

    P.S. You are a great role model!

  • Cindy Toledo says:

    #TEAMTENI In all honesty, the first video from your channel that I watched was the “How to Start a YouTube Channel…” I have continued to watch your videos since 2014. I immediately loved your personality. In less than minute I knew you were smart, classy and that you loved the natural makeup look (I do too). You were my guide and that extra push that I needed to finally tell my husband about my extreme desire to have my own channel. After many obstacles, I finally had the courage to do it. I now have my YouTube channel. “You gotta start somewhere”, right? : ) I have the most basic equipment but I make it work. Every subby that I get fills my heart with joy and that keeps me motivated. Thank you Teni for being such a huge inspiration!!!!!!  

  • Ashley Nimeh says:

    I still remember the post when you ran into that stray dog in Turks and Caicos. How you spotted her, went up to her and fed her. And how you sensed she was happier and how you wished you could have done more. That’s exactly how I feel every time I see a stray. My home country is Lebanon and there are so many stray dogs and cats there. I would typically see at least one a day and the heaviness in my heart every time I spotted one tore me up. I appreciate and admire how much you care for animals as much as I do!! I love that you advocate adopting and not buying!! And last but not least, I love that you think Lebanese food is boooommmbbbb because us Lebanese know what we are doing when it comes to our stomachs!! Dogs and hummus for ever. 😛 stay beautiful, beautiful.

  • Rebecca says:

    Hello Teni!
    Love your looks! It’s always so refreshing watching your videos or looking at your posts on IG. You seem so down to earth and relatable. Wishing nothing but success and happiness for you!

  • Carrie says:

    Hello Teni. I don’t follow many social media apps but I love wyahcing your YouTube videos and your snaps! Your attitude is very uplifting and your snaps are so fun to watch! Short girls do need to stick together. I’m 5’2″ and proud of it! But the jokes man! Anyways, please kee up with your awesome YouTube videos. I love how you make it so everyday people can achieve the looks. So thank you! And please keep making more!!!

  • Felicia Harris says:

    A couple of months ago I was cruising around YouTube as I usually do catching up with my favorite youtubers. So I began watching one of your videos (it was a smokey eye tutorial) and I was feeling pretty ambitious so I wanted to try it out. Usually I go for more natural looks and do not go for dark colors as I hey rather light during winter and have blue eyes. Anyways I rummaged through my stuff and found products that I thought were similar to the ones you used. Then I sat in my bathroom for about and hour and a half trying to figure out why I still looked like an egg (okay it probably didn’t look that bad but defenitaley not as good as yours did) and how to fix it. Needless to say I did not give up and eventually found a way to make it work. However I was forced to realize you are naturally gorgeous and you are able to rock so many looks that others can’t (including me). Nonetheless you have inspired me to branch out and find what works for me while trying and learning from your techniques. I love watching your channel grow and I feel like I have been able to experience things through it and you (okay that may sound a little strange). What I mean is as you experience beautycon, various trips, and the Oscars I feel like I am there with you and have happiness knowing that you made it. You are one of the few youtubers that I feel like I have connected with and as though you are one of so as you which is why when you experience great things I have happiness In knowing I’ve been along side you for your journey. Thank you for everything!

    I remember first watching you channel years back. It was how you removed your makeup.
    You had a small basket of white wash clothes you said you purchased at target.
    You wet the wash clothes with hot water and broke up your makeup that way first. I still use that tip from you till this day. ALLLLSOOOO I remember thinking wow this video is so professional and personal, Since that day I have followed you, watched all your videos and got REAL tips I use in my everyday life. Thanks Teni.. You rock!!

  • Noor K says:

    I love watching your videos. I’ve been watching your videos since undergrad…that’s a long time. Many of your makeup looks are wearable for everyday work or can be easily altered to be work/school appropriate. Thanks for great videos. Entered for the giveaway! Hope I win! 🙂

  • Patricia says:

    Teni, it didn’t take me long to realize that you are one of,if not , my favorite beauty blogger. I have been subscribed to you for over a year. What caught my attention ,besides your amazing tutorials, is your personality. I am an introvert, and ( it looks like you are too) for me someone like you made me feel a bit more confident. The fact that you can connect with thousands of people without having to be loud and bubbly is amazing. (Not that I mind bubbly personalities). After every video, I don’t hearing you talk in your soft voice, in fact it’s different. Keep doing you, never change because of your “uniqueness” you’re lifting the confidence in people like me and people that are opposite than me. Love you.

  • Melynda Joy says:

    Hey Teni!
    I honestly can’t pick my favorite video by you because I literally love them all! 😉
    I guess the one that really impacted me was your Snapchat Q&A video. Like you, i’m a pretty private lowkey gal and it takes me time to get confortable with people. So, I also want to thank you for opening up more to Us! Hearing you talk about your life experinces, etc was very uplifting and inspirational. That video changed my life because of what you said. I am 100% Middle Eastern sooo I can relate especially when you talk about your hair and eyebrows (I feel your pain). Growing up in a predominantly Muslim country, I knew who Jesus was but I didn’t really try to learn about Christianity. After moving to America when I was 10, I was at a different part of my life and a lot of things were going on. I didn’t care about anyone else around me, I was only looking out for myself. Shortly after moving, my mom had passed so naturally I went back to be with my siblings and dad. At the same time my dad had arranged a marriage which I did not agree on. I became really depressed from age 15-16. That’s when I started taking religion more seriously. I was praying 5 times a day, working on recitation, etc. But I still felt empty. Due to my dad, I had to leave once again for safety reasons and go back to America. Fast fowarding to a year after that I went back into depression. Living with my grandparents who are christian as well I started getting interested in christianity. I wanted to know more and more and I started turning away from what iv’e known all of those years. Iv’e literally been through so much in my life. And when you mentioned God and prayer, that made me break down. I literally can’t explain how grateful I am for you. You saying that really inspired me and pushed me to convert. Jesus Christ is my lord and savior and he has already done so much for me. I pray for you and your family everyday Teni. God bless you and thank you for being you! I love you sooooooooo much!

  • Simran S says:

    Hey Teni! I have been following your YouTube channel and blog for a few years now. I love how down to earth you are. It is refreshing to see such a beautiful woman who is also intelligent and articulate promoting makeup, beauty and confidence! Keep on doing what you do !

  • Sami Sellers says:

    Hi Teni!!

    I am a newer viewer from YouTube, I found you probably five months ago, but since then you have given me so much inspiration to up my makeup game and to feel better about myself. I always struggled with thinking I was the girl next door, I felt like I looked plain and uninteresting, and I pretty much did my makeup the same way every day for every occasion with just slightly different colors depending. But now, since I have darker hair and eyes, I see that I can pull off sooo much more than just that one little style. I feel like I have more confidence and I feel sexy and new and actually am trying to start a beauty channel of my own so that I can pass on inspiration to other people like you did to me. 🙂

    Thank you soooo much!!

    When I see this quote I think of you, thank you for all you do.

  • Alaina Leigh says:

    Hey Teni! So I’m just going on a whim here and giving this thing a shot because who wouldn’t want to win a giveaway from an awesome beauty guru?! Your channel is so inspiring and uplifting, I feel like I’m learning something new every time I watch one of your videos. Like tonight for example, your storage just gave me some ideas to try out. You’ve given me an insight on what it’s like to expand and learn about many different things whether it is makeup, people, cultures, fashion, etc. Your personality is very easy going and it always feels like I’m listening to a friend. Thank you so much for being awesome and teaching me so much and congrats on 1m! xoxoxo

  • Esmeralda Banuelos says:

    hi Teni you saved my life in doing makeup like seriously. I so was bad at doing my makeup then i was like you know what i need is to watch youtube videos. I came across one of your videos on a tutorial about eyeshadows. Ever since that I was like i need to subscribe she’s hella good. I learned how to my eyshadow, eyeliner and to contour because of you. I love when you show us tips on how to apply products. Im so glad I met you at beautyconLA last year you’re so nice. I just want to say thank you and i really hope i win this since i never won a giveway before and plus you are picking on my birthday so it would mean so much and a really good birthday present. Anyways enough of my blabbing lol love you Teni
    love,
    Esmeralda

  • Amrita says:

    Teni!
    I love you channel! I think you are so beautiful and I love the way you explain the application process!
    I especially love your outfit videos because I find your fashion choices inspirational!
    Thanks for making great videos!

  • Camilla Bach says:

    Hi Teni 🙂

    I think I’ve been following your YouTube channel for a couple of years now. I think I came across your channel, because you made a favorite skincare video, where you had some of Ole Henriksen’s products in it, and I personally love Ole’s products!
    And one of the reasons I love your channel, is because you are a huge inspiration! I work in the beauty business, and you give me inspiration to my own make up, but also to my customers!
    So a huge thank you all the way from Denmark!

  • Maria Petrosyan says:

    My fellow Armenian Clarkie!!! I think you were a senior when I was a freshman haha! Just wanted to say thank you for being an inspiration and wonderful role model. So glad to see good people doing good things. Keep up the amazing work! Love the lip color videos in particular (I.e. Fall colors are my fave).

  • Anita C says:

    Hi, Teni! I’m a fairly new subscriber- I found you from Chriselle- but i love your videos; you have such an honest and authentic voice and give such trustworthy reviews. I honestly don’t often buy makeup because it’s quite expensive (especially when you’re a high school student in Australia) but it’d be so cool to win something!!
    Congrats in advance for 1million youtube subscribers!!

  • Nicole says:

    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to connect with you. I have really enjoyed the content you have produced for the last couple of years. You have been an instrumental figure in allowing me to discover beauty at a deeper level–not just how it transforms physical features, but allowing me to feel more confident! Thank you!

  • Swati K. says:

    Teni, I have been following you for years and years now. What attracted me to your videos was your extremely calming voice and humble attitude. Seriously, I rmbr I used to listen to your videos before my exams to help calm me down!! Your tutorials are so easy to follow and so helpful to me because I have almost the same skin tone, and I would always buy products that other youtubers used(the fair skinned ones..lol) and wonder why they looked awful on me.. My bad. Although I love your makeup tutorials, my favorite ones to watch now are your travel diaries.. Esp the Turks and Caicos one.. Sigh, so beautiful. I admire your fashion sense soooo much! Keep inspiring us all, Teni, and may u reach new heights of success 🙂 stay blessed :-*

  • Cecilia Morales says:

    Hi Teni! Congrats on almost hitting a million subbies Idk where to start but I guess I’m just gonna say what I feel I should haha ..A few years back I didn’t know anything about makeup and at the time I wanted to look good cause I was going on a date lol so I started looking up tutorials on youtube. At the time I think I only owned like a Maybelline quad or something, it had brown and gold eyeshadows. I stumbled upon your Gold Smokey eye tutorial and I was like Yessss! I love how her eye makeup looks. At first I was just interested in the makeup but then I found myself really enjoying your down to earth personality☺ the way you take your time to explain and go into depth about how to do something is what I love from then on I just kept watching because you are so humble and I also learned a lot make up wise. I buy new products just because you say they are good lol. After all this time I still keep trying to shut one eye and keep the other open the way you do but I just can’t one day though ..sorry about the rant but I figured I might as well go all out and let you know that you’re awesome at what you do. Thank you for the videos✨ & much love girl

  • Chelsea says:

    Teni,
    You’re absolutely amazing and I always love watching your videos!

    Xoxo Chelsea

  • Hannah says:

    Teni! I know that you’re probably being inundated with comments and tweets and posts and whatnot, but I’ll keep mine short and simple. I LOVE your snapchat stories oh my! Whenever I’m having a bad day or I need a little pick me up, I know that I’ll be able to watch your snap story for a really passionate rant about a topic that resonates with me or a funny story about something that happened to you (my absolute FAVORITE one being when you went to the drugstore/grocery and you saw two Armenian women judging you for your comfy outfit, lol). Would love to win this giveaway!!! Thank Y-O-U so much for gifting us with your content and creativity. You rock,

  • Tina says:

    Teni! You are so amazing for doing such a badass giveaway! I LOVE your channel, I live for your snaps, and you’re my #1 inspiration as I begin to create my own blog. ❤️ I just admire you so much! You seem incredibly real, down to earth, and you’re beautiful inside and out. I’ve been following you for years and I’m so excited you’re getting the recognition you deserve! Thanks for being you!!

  • Suani Chavez says:

    Hello Teni,
    It’s pass mid night and I’m still wide awake thinking what to do. Then I entered on my youtube app to watch a video and yours came out. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity that you are giving to five of all your followers to win some wonderful makeup. I love your channel and I love the way you give tutorials. You do it in a just simple way that everything is clear. Why do I deserve to be one of the winners well because I’m a mom, a wife, a daughter, and a student that try to be better person every day. My husband is a wonderful man that works hard to pay all bills and pay my college out of pocket. The reason I don’t work it’s because I’m scare to let other stranger to take care of my princess because of the many bad things that happen. I love looovveee makeup since I was 8 years old, but I don’t have that opportunity to have luxurious makeup. I wish and dream to win for once in my life. I hope you pick me. Keep doing what you are doing because God is going to bless you so much more. Never change.

  • Tara Dyevoich says:

    Hi, Teni 🙂 So kind of you to do a giveaway. I’ve been watching your videos for about a year now, and you’ve quickly climbed up as my favorite go-to for makeup tutorials and product recommendations. There’s something so calming about you, which is a huge reason why your videos are some of my favorites. You have such a natural and organic approach to makeup. You make the most complex looks seem simple, and you’ve quite actually brought me out of my makeup routine shell. Makeup, for me, is something that makes me genuinely happy. YouTube played a huge role in discovering my love for it and in helping me actually become halfway decent at applying it – thanks for all the help. 🙂 You are beautiful on the inside and out.

    Best,

    Tara

  • Rameen Wakeel says:

    Hiya !!
    The reason I started watching you was because you made me feel better about myself , I’m from Pakistan which means I have a darker skin tone than most mainstream youtubers , this also means that I thought I could never find the right foundation shade or that a eyeshadow would have to be straight up black to show up on my skin. Watching you (someone who is a bit closer to my skin tone ) made me realise that I can find makeup to match my skin tone and look amazing wearing it . I just recently got into makeup and that was partly because of watching your videos and it’s honestly brought me so much happiness so thankyou for that !! I also really enjoy your videos because you’re usually go a bit light handed when it comes to makeup , something I appreciate as a natural makeup kind of girl looking for tutorials . So please continue to do natural looks (even though you already have a lot of them up on your channel ) .

  • Dori says:

    Hi Teni!What i really like about your channel is that your videos are always very informative,on point,never too long,never boring.That shows how much of a organized person you are,and i can relate to that.I am a medical student,and when i want to de-stress i watch your videos or Friends(haha :)) ).I don’t really watch youtubers(i hope that is the term) ,so when i think about youtube and beauty ,i pretty much think about you.Greetings from Romania 😀

  • Leolinda says:

    Hi Teni, I love watching your video and the very first video I remember watching from your channel was that video when you only used two eye shadow! That was really so simple and still my favorite video to watch…Keep doing what your best at and never stop!

  • Luisa says:

    You were what inspired me to save up and get my first palette (Lorac pro from your smoky eye tutorial) and find the joy that comes with makeup. Something that may seem so simple to other people but what turned out to be my outlet and my way of expression during messy family times and during my first heartbreak. I really wanted to thank you for all the work and love you pour into all your videos. Your dedication to your fans never goes unnoticed. Thankyou for being a role model and sharing your life with us. And Congratulations on all your success. Tuition has to be paid so I can’t get as much makeup as I’d like. but I still practice your techniques with that Lorac palette I love so much and my good old BH brush set. Love you Teni! Thankyou for everything

  • Kate Spencer says:

    Hi Teni!
    You were the first ‘beauty guru’ I happened upon and you definitely sparked my interest in makeup. I had never really worn very much, but after watching a few of your videos I began to dabble into wearing more. I’m still dabbling away and learning more from you every video! You’re clearly amazingly talented, not only at makeup but at portraying it through the camera into a valuable learning tool for people all over the world. It is much appreciated! But besides the tutorial aspect, there is something very calming about watching you do your makeup – so much so that it is a regular occurrence for my friends and I to lay in bed on Saturdays, recovering from our night before, and watching your videos over and over again. It’s a bonding experience for us gals – we order in food and laugh about last night while we watch your content. You’ve become a part of our weekend ritual and i guess that kind of makes you one of the girls too ha. So thank you very much for the work you do – I truly enjoy watching your videos and I know I am not alone!
    Congratulations on 1 million subscribers which you will be hitting very soon 🙂
    Best,
    Kate

  • Diana Hanna says:

    Actually saw you through Sona’s page a few years ago and thought I’d look you up. Turns out you’re a talented, motivated and have aspirations beyond makeup, even though you’re a makeup geek (much as myself)! You are also Christian (not a deal breaker for makeup videos) – and middle eastern – as am I!

    Your videos always make me lol – because you’re incredibly comfortable in front Of the camera and make your viewers feel the same! and although I subscribe to many other gurus – I have come to click yours almost immediately as I see them on my feed.

    Thanks for being awesome and always feeding my curiosity for makeup 🙂 keep on keeping on!

    This is my entry to your giveaway 🙂

  • Ashley Nunez says:

    I am a college student who is a makeup junkie!! It would mean the world to me to win this giveaway. You’re such a beautiful soul. I hope I win this so I can unleash my creativity! Love you Teni❤️

  • whether its a subtle contour or heavy highlighting (I’m all about that glow) your one of the few makeup artists that can create a full look in such a simple, natural and classic way (and its my kind of look). You teach your audience the how and why about a product or way of application and its a bonus that my skin tone and facial features are very similar to yours haha you are hands down my number 1 youtuber and I’m not just saying that for the sake of the giveaway. I hope that someday girls look up to me like we all do to you, your great KEEP IT UP (please) 🙂 xoxo

  • Zara H says:

    Teni, no matter if I win or not I just wanted to share this with you.
    When I started following you, you didn’t have a lot of followers. I randomly found your blog and started reading your articles about brushes, technique, makeup, color. You got me hooked on Sigma brushes. Honestly, before I wasn’t even using a brush so you literally taught me how to do make up. I would comment on your articles and get replies from you which was nice of you btw. I knew you are going to get more popular and you did.
    I feel kind of special to be one of the first supporters of your work. I wish you good luck and have no doubt you have a lot of success ahead.

    Keep up the good work!

    Zara

  • Aarti Kapoor says:

    Teni,

    I first found your video’s through Marnie (MsGoldGirl) on Youtube, 3 years ago. Ever since then I have fallen in love with your style and personality. Your makeup knowledge is so vast, that I have learned so much from you over the years. Another reason why I continue to come back and watch every video is because our skin tones are similar and its great to see what different products look like on people who are not as fair as everyone else online. Also I am into neutral looks so your videos are right up my alley, and I have recreated many of them for nights out and special events. Your blog as also inspired me to think about starting my own, while I’m still in school. So Thank You for being an inspiration.

  • Raquel Moreno says:

    Hi teni,
    I love all your makeup tutorials. I learned a lot about of makeup. I wish one day I can meet you.

    I love that you are an advocate for furry friends! I have both fostered and adopted dogs in the past and it is so great to see your compassion and love for animals!

  • Daniella S. says:

    Hi Teni,

    I remember 3 years ago looking for pictures of soft makeup as inspiration because I was going to be a bridesmaid in a wedding. I stumbled upon your brown smokey eye tutorial. At that time I wasn’t even aware that there were youtube videos dedicated to makeup and you were one of the first to get me hooked and that I subscribed to. I have always loved your looks because they are timeless, natural and classy and I thought you were just the prettiest and really explained the techniques well. Youtube has become such a nice escape for me and watching your videos with a coffee in the morning is one of my favourite ways to relax. I admire how intelligent and well spoken you are, it is very refreshing and I think your are a very positive and great influence for girls of today. I am a teacher and discuss your videos with some of the students in my classes as they follow you as wel , I enjoy following your snaps too as I think your kindness really shines through. You have always recommended great products that have worked well for me, I would love to win the giveaway as I’m sure it contains some really bomb products I can become addicted to! All the best <3
    🙂

  • Karen Barnett says:

    What I really enjoy about your channel and blog is that you can tell you are a regular person who doesn’t try too hard. You are simply yourself. I enjoy seeing the different parts of your life and also love that you are a proud Trojan! I went to USC for my masters and I absolutely love being a Trojan too! Fly that SC flag, girl! Congrats on all of your success so far and I’m excited to see what’s next for you!

  • Alifia V. says:

    Hey Teni,

    So first of all I just want to take the time out and say that I love you and your channel. I have always been an average girl who puts on makeup for special occasions. Looking at other girls using makeup brushes, different products, it made me feel like an outcast. I never really had an interest in makeup until I saw your channel. I love your personality and the way you inspire us to use makeup as way to enhance our inner and outer beauty and feel more confident. Makeup is truly an art and seeing your passion and dedication towards it makes me really happy. I really loved your Cleopatra tutorial/ makeup look, because it shows that you share your passion with us and make it come to life through a makeup tutorial. I always look forward to your videos for advice on products to use. I wish you all the best in your career and a big THANK YOU!

  • Nairi says:

    Hello beautiful soul, Im so proud of you. Your Q & A video made me loom up to you even more. Keep up the amazing work and always be the positive YOU . Xoxo

  • Brenda C. says:

    Hi Teni,
    I think the first video I saw of you was your “Get ready with me: My 30th Birthday.” I always look forward to seeing your videos because you are so honest with your opinions about the products or any moment of your life you might be sharing with the rest of the world! I really love that your channel includes a good variety of topics, but your main focus is on beauty and make up! Although your channel has grown a lot over the last few years, it’s really cool to see that you have remained the same sweet and honest girl! Thank you for sharing all your tips and congrats on all your accomplishments!

  • Shiela F. says:

    When I was pregnant with my first son almost 4 years ago, I was in the army, my husband was deployed to Afghanistan, and I was feeling very alone stationed across the world away from home. Not to mention feeling fat and ugly (sad truth).
    Browsing the internet to pass time, I discovered the wonderful world of youtube and this pretty cool chic’s video called “No Makeup, Natural Makeup Tutorial” and “Simple Foundation Routine”. Since then, I started really getting into exploring makeup and what made me feel pretty and what made me feel good.
    You bet your ass I started showing up to work in my maternity ACUs (army combat uniform) wearing my new “No Makeup” makeup look. You were the reason for the start of my copious amount of makeup brushes and venturing into higher end brands especially for foundation (e.g. Make Up Forever HD & NARS’s custard concealer, which I still use til this day).
    Thank you for keeping me company during those lonely and depressing days, even the not so boring days of dealing with a crying baby and dirty diapers all by myself, until hubs returned home safe. And for teaching me how to get this makeup thing down. It’s not easy finding a guru that uses the exact foundation/concealer shades as me AND is cool to watch. Keep it up! Muah!

  • Natalie says:

    Hi Teni!!
    Thank you so much for doing this giveaway!!! i would love to meet you one day, you’ve inspired me in so many ways. I would love to win this giveaway because as a college student, and as a mother, i don’t have money to buy myself any make up. My husband is the only one working right now and this would mean the world to me if i won. My birthday is coming up so this could be my birthday present :p
    I hope you have an amazing day. God bless you, Teni!!!

    xoxo,
    Natalie

  • Marlene Sanchez says:

    Dear Teni,
    What I love about you/your channel is the style/process you share with us. You’re one of my favorite youtubers because of how detailed and light handed you are with your makeup! You’ve played a big part in me learning how not to cake on products and how to make it seem as though I “woke up like this” 😉 haha. Keep up the awesome tutorials!

  • Joanne K says:

    Hi teni! Just wanted to say that I really admire you because you are just so genuine and beautiful! I’ve been watching your videos since the very very beginning when you were starting off. I find it awesome that you were a USC song girl. I used to be in song in high school and USC is definitely the school I would love to transfer to. I love how your personality is still the same from the beginning. Thank you for being so real. I actually rewatch your videos a couple of times because your editing skills and perfect and your videos are so straight forward and totally helpful. Although I’m Asian and have a different eye shape than you I still love watching. I enjoy watching your videos because we have the same taste in makeup looks; looking as natural as possible. I’m a young college student who loves makeup but can’t really afford to try the high end products. Drugstore makeup is awesome too but it’s nice to try new things. Again, thanks for being you and I look forward to continue supporting and watching your videos!! Love you teni!

  • Martha Gallardo says:

    Hi Teni I just want to tell you how much I love your videos and that I have learnee so much from. I have been following you for while now but not like to comment. But I love that you have opened up more to us your followers, you have let us mor into your life and I feel that to a certain point I know you. Love you

  • Noor says:

    Hi Teni! I’ve been one of your subscribers since forever and till now I get so excited to watch your videos and I’ve watched every single one of them ❤️ it’s so crazy seeing how far you’ve come.
    I remember one of your very old videos I think it was a Q&A, someone asked how you learned to do makeup. You said that you were self taught and you always had a passion for artsy things. I don’t know why but I was so inspired to get better at makeup and beauty because I also have a passion for art. I also feel like you’re one of those youtubers who never let me down with your makeup looks! I love each and every single one of them and I try recreating them, like the colourful liner one (i completely failed LOL). Anyways keep it up, ❤️ you’re amazing and you’re just such an inspiration to me.
    Love Noor 🙂

  • Brooke Parra says:

    Teni,
    I love love love love getting to see how genuine you are through your YouTube videos, snapchat, your blog, Instagram 🙂 I’m always so excited to hear your amazing stories and take your style and beauty advice! Can’t wait to see what’s next for you bc I imagine the best things:)

  • Niroopa says:

    To be honest, I’ve only become a makeup girl recently. It started as bonding thing with my sister, Nadia- we’d go on Sephora dates and spend hours trying stuff out an figuring how to use everything. You were the first YouTuber that she told me to follow. We love watching your videos because of how effortless, classy and easy you make everything look. The first video that I’ve watched of yours was a skincare video. Needless to say, my collection has grown from a bottle of L’oreal true match and eyeliner, mascara, setting powder to my bathroom overflowing into my bedroom.

    The great thing about skincare and makeup is that it really has bonded all of the ladies in my family (sisters, Mom, Aunts, cousins). I come from a big family and at every family gathering (which is often) it always ends up in face masks, raiding each other’s makeup collection and tutorials. Recently, we’ve converted our Mom into a makeup lover by doing her makeup for a night out with my aunts- she always thought she had to go lighter with her foundation and she had never contoured her face. That was a big deal for Nads and I because in that one look, we changed her mind on all of her old-school makeup beliefs.

    I’m not going to say that I need the makeup- I’ve got a decent amount. But if I do win, the prize would definitely be shared and part of many laughs and memories.

  • Renée Suástegui says:

    Hi Teni! So I definitely want to win this amazing prize. If I am chosen, I will – one, pray for world peace everyday, seriously. Two, I will make sure to have my face contoured and highlighted, that the gods would be jealous of my chiseled cheeks and chin! …and three, I will make sure to send you my best ‘blue steel’ once I’ve applied said make-up! Hope this put a smile on your face, and yes, I’m serious about the first one! Thanks!
    -Renée

  • Monica Becerra says:

    Hey Teni! I’ll be honest by saying I haven’t been a subscriber for a long time (about a year) but you are one of the first beauty gurus I found on youtube and actually connected with. I had trouble finding someone who had a similar skin tone as mine or skin type. Not only that, you like the same styles/look of makeup as I do, Neutrals. I actually replicated your brown smokey eye for my high school graduation last year. I just wanted to say that you have inspired the way I do make up and I feel like you are super relatable and kind even though I don’t know you in real life. I Hope you reach 1M soon! and continue to inspire new people with every video!

  • Gianni Leal says:

    Hi Teni!!!!

    First of all, I want to thank you for being so generous and thoughtful and such an inspiration. You are such a strong woman and I admire that so much. You have one of the biggest hearts out there, and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m working towards becoming a neurosurgeon because I want to be able to give back to people and help out as much as I can, even if it means sacrificing my wants/needs. I’m a stay at home mom of 2, while my husbands works full time to support us all. I’ve given up the ability to splurge on myself so that my kids can have everything they need and so I can fully focus on my schooling by staying home and not working. Even though I love expensive makeup I know that it isn’t practical for me to buy it. My career path is very difficult and challenging especially with 2 young kids but that’s not an excuse to not succeed. You inspire me to be a strong, confident woman, and to chase my dreams. I want to make a difference like you have!!! I would love to win but those who truly stand behind you deserve it just as much as me. Thank you again! (:

  • Cheyenne Sizemore says:

    Love you! My favorite recent video is your foundation. OMG SO GORGEOUS. Like, can I plz have your face. You’re so gorgeous! I tried posting a meme on here. It didn’t work. That is what happens when I try to be funny. 🙂

  • Deepthi says:

  • Ivonne Roa says:

    Teni!!
    Ivonne from Mexico, I love your make up tutorials, they are great for latinas
    I have follow your tutorials but still have to practice a lot

  • Dannielle says:

    Teni,
    I always can say I’m excited to see you pop up in my description box. I love your passion for makeup and love for life. Your looks range from bold and daring to natural and sweet, and each and every one inspires me in some new way. My favorite memory of watching your videos is the day my boyfriend recognized you. He’s heard me mention you before, but that day he finally admitted that, to him, you were the girl “who says velvety” and to me that was the most genuinely adorable identifier that could have been applied to you. I’m so glad I subscribed to your channel, you’re easily one of my favorites I’ve been lucky enough to find in the YouTube community. I’m so proud and excited you’re getting near your 1 billion sub mark so congratulations in advance!

    Best Wishes,
    Dannielle

  • Paige says:

    I love watching your videos. My favorite thing about your channel is how down to earth you are. Your natural beauty is what truly shines, the makeup simply enhances it. You are so talented at breaking down the steps so anyone can achieve your looks. I also love seeing other things beyond makeup that you show in your videos, love your overall style.

  • Argineh Novshadyan says:

  • Heidi Tom says:

    Hi! I love your channel. Your channel is one of the first I subscribed to and I love it! I look out for your videos everyday and even go back and watch old ones.

  • Nat says:

    Hi Teni, so my story is about how i have found you ! I saw a picture of one of your look on like tumblr or we heart it, it was actually your fall makeup + sunset eyeshadow video hahah ! I didn’t know who you were and where to find you so i google stuff like “pretty dramatic look” or “orange / black / dark look” after an hour of research I have found your channel and been addicted to it !
    I loved every single look you have done since, you are such a talented person and deserve everything that is happening to you. Even if i don’t get to be pick up i just wanted you to know that every upload you do make me smile and make my day better. Lots of love ! -Nat
    Ps : sorry for my bad english i’m french

  • Anjlee says:

    Hi Teni! Your channel is special to me because you were one of the first people I found that I could really relate to. Physically speaking, I really appreciate that you provide perspective from someone who looks more like me than most other YouTubers (go olive skin girls!). Growing up it can be hard when so many of the people you see in the media don’t look even remotely close to you. It’s so nice to have a place I can go to get beauty advice that actually applies. I have to say one of my favourite memories was the first time I heard you talking so candidly about your moustache and body/facial hair, because that’s something that I’ve always dealt with and is just so not glamourous. I couldn’t get over that you just owned it and you actually gave good advice on how to deal with it. I feel like you’re my big sister or something, someone I can really look up to and admire. I love you and am so proud and excited about how far you’ve come!

  • Heather says:

    Teniii! Congrats on almost 1 million!! I love your makeup looks, you’re such a classic beauty but you’re also beautiful on the inside. Honestly, I feel the biggest connection we have is the love of our pets! I mean, besides makeup of course, but at the end of the day it’s just makeup and there are more important things in life and I honestly believe the connection you make with your pets and being able to save the life of a little nugget who brightens your day and snuggles with you and loves you back, which is exactly what you get when you rescue an animal, is so satisfying and gives you so much happiness. I’ve gotten all my pets from rescue shelters, 2 dogs (tips and shoelace) and 2 cats (lysandro and tiberius), and honestly they’ve rescued me. I suffer with generalized anxiety and panic attacks and at the end of a crappy day I know there’s gonna be a little furball there to comfort me and love me when I get home and that’s what honestly gets me through the hard times. I love your dedication to and love of animals and you inspire me to keep doing what I can to save the strays. Keep up the good work!

  • Dayana says:

    Hey Teni!
    You know how everyone has their favourite show to binge watch … That’s literally your channel to me I enjoy every single video so much that I’ve noticed that you wore the same – fabulous I must say – sweater on your latest makeup collection video and a get to know me vid you posed on 27th of Nov 2013 haha! Some things definitely don’t go out of style! I suffered so much from acne personally and so your video about this has not only given me tips and ticks but also inspired me to not stress too much about it since literally we all go through it. Also, I am Arab myself, so your Arabic inspired makeup eye tutorial was definitely spot on ! We go crazy with that elongated cat eye look عشق فراوان ❤️

  • Carina says:

    Thank you so much for being my favorite YouTuber and beauty guru! You’re the most sincere, honest, down-to-earth and just NICE guru I know! I think it’s so inspiring that you are able to be in an industry that can be catty or “fake” and you maintain who you are! I honestly look forward to your posts and snaps every day. You’re so refreshing to watch, like a tall drink of water in a scorching desert! Thank you for doing this giveaway and being so great to your followers. One million is just the beginning! Love you!

  • Jesika says:

    Hi Teni! So excited for this giveaway I’ve watched your videos for years even though I suck at doing my makeup I’m always hoping to get as good as you just by watching your videos lol I have dry skin too so I appreciate every time you recommend products especially drug store foundation. I’m a mom of 2 boys so buying makeup is kind of hard. Help me look fabulous picking up my boy from school! Lol thanks!

  • Jessica Macias says:

    Hi Teni, I’ve been following you for some time now and I just wanted to thank you for all the great advice you give us, your viewers. I just wanted to share with you the most memorable time I have about you, which is the first time I came across your channel on YT, I thought you were the most naturally beautiful girl I’ve ever seen, I would see soooo many people say: hey you look like Kim K, but I was like, yea like the natural beautiful version of her lol and alot better too jiji. Well anyways one the best most great advice I got from one of your tutorials was the time you filmed one about your eyebrows and how you grew them out, I was soo amazed by the big difference when you showed a before and after of your brows. That stuck in my head forever! How you said to let your eyebrows be who they are lol and how they are meant to frame our face naturally, that was like a light bulb that went off in my head lol. Thanks to that I learned to let my brows grow and that made a huge difference in my life believe it or not, since I used to over pluck alot. You just inspired me by how to enhance our natural beauty and be who we are as a person too, just like those brows lol. Thanks for your advice Teni, your are definitely one of my most favorite youtubers and natural beauty ever! 😉 Blessings

  • Hanah Usman says:

    Hiiiii pretty! I love watching your videos because the energy that you give off. I love how natural it comes to you and i really love how natural your makeup always looks and that you make simple SO cute. I love that you love what you do and that is shows tremendously through the screen. I’ve been watching your videos for years now and I love seeing your success, and i truly mean that! Keep living life to the fullest and doing what you do because you inspire so many people and you definitely are a role model! Love you!

  • Nicole Flores says:

    Teni, a video of yours I will always remember is the “how to start a YouTube channel +blog” video. It gave me many tips and started leading me into the right direction in the makeup world. During the video, you said “believe in your work and it will grow”, that has stuck with me for as long as I can remember and whenever I’m down about my work, I think of that quote and smile because it gives me confidence and reassures me about my passion. It’s been a few years now and I have always wanted to create a YouTube channel for my love of makeup. You were one of the first people I watched on YouTube and I watched your videos religiously. You are someone I have looked up to for a long time and you continue to inspire me every single day. Thank you for all that you do for the makeup community and thank you for being you. ✨

  • Sabrina says:

    Bonjour Teni !

    First of all congrats for almost one million susbscribers, so well deserved !! I’m following you since years and what I love about you together with the quality of your work , is your natural, your true, down to earth Teni. And the calming effect your previous turquoise blue room had on me, and Bambi & Keiko, and your Brazilian blow outs !!! Lol !

    I’ll be around as long as you will be , you’re such an inspiration !

    Love from France !!

  • Neve Dhaliwal says:

    Hey Teni! I hope you’re well 🙂
    My name is Neve Dhaliwal and I’m 19 years old. I actually started watching your YouTube videos about 2 years ago and fell in love with them! Your style is so versatile and your makeup looks are beautiful! Pretty much every time I do my makeup, I always think “how would Teni do this?” Or “would she pick this shade or this one?” Your natural style is so great, I actually based my graduation and prom makeup off of your makeup looks! Or when I go shopping I love keeping your style tips at the back of my mind. I hope that didn’t sound too creepy or anything…Also, I added you on snapchat too! (I swear I’m not creepily obsessed….although I do follow you on Instagram too ) Your snaps are so eye opening and I love seeing the behind the scenes stuff. You’ve inspired me to do makeup and after looking at your style I started wanting to dress up more and pay more attention to how I wear things. When I’m stressed about school, I’ll take a break and try doing a makeup look inspired by your videos. It really helps. Mostly, I hope I made you smile if you read this.
    P.S I loveeee seeing you wear bright lipsticks, you pull it off so well! My favourite videos are the ones where you try on different lippies.
    P.P.S You’re super cool

  • Mari says:

    Hi Teni!! I love your videos so much!! I first stumbled across your channel when I was curious about dark lipstick and saw your dark matte lipstick tutorial. It changed my life!! After seeing your tutorial, I didn’t think dark lipsticks were as intimidating and now I’m hooked on trying out different lipstick shades. You’re so awesome and I can’t wait to see your next video!!

  • Jasmine Smith says:

    Hi Teni!

    When I watch your videos, I see someone who is courageous. I see someone who has walked through valleys, and conquered mountains. I see someone who wakes up every day and makes a conscious decision to be the best person you can be. I see someone who chooses to take every moment as a chance to grow. You choose to use your platform to inspire, encourage and spread a positive message. I feel like you are genuine in all of your intentions, and desire to inspire in whatever ways you can.

    You’re the type of person I would love to have as a housemate haha. I feel like I could learn a lot from you – interior design, makeup (I would totally steal from your makeup stash and get get you to do my makeup for a hot date 😉 ), and fashion… But more importantly, I feel like I could learn from who you are as a person and the things that I listed above.

    Thank you for following your calling. Thank you for shining your light.
    God is smiling down on you, proud of who you are.

    Am i the only one who didn’t know that you have a blogok…subscribed to this one too

  • Kelly Scholtz says:

    Hi Teni,
    I stumbled across one of your video’s about a year ago and it was the “neutral smokey eye makeup tutorial”. From there on, I’ve been a die hard fan.

    What I admire most about you is that you’re honestly so humble and kind. That shines so out so much in your videos.

    Your tutorials are fun and easy to follow. I really do find them helpful! Your Natural Glam makeup and standout lashes is one of my favourite videos! You looked absolutely stunning.

    Teni, I really look up to you as an older sister. You’re so relatable In your videos, like in your Q+A! Ask Teni video, you were complaining about how fluffy your hair was. I have super thick hair and understand the struggle! Videos like that I really enjoy because you’re so open and you inspire me to be more positive about life.

    Sending loads of love to you from South Africa!
    Hope you have a wonderful day!

  • Brook says:

    Dear Teni,

    My name is Brook and I have been subscribed to your YouTube channel/IG/Blog/twitter for several years now. ☑️ I just want to remind you of how appreciated you are. I truly believe you are the definition of a beautiful person. Whether it be physical or internal, you got it goin’ on girl! You inspire me In some way in every one of your videos! I would be honored and blessed to win this giveaway as I am a makeup enthusiast and this giveaway would really help me out. I love you so much, you are amazing AND DONT YOU FORGET IT!

  • Amy says:

    Teni!! I’ve recently been subscribed to your channel just a few weeks ago and was instantly attracted by your kind eyes and awesome makeup tutorials! I look up to you so much and I aspire to be as happy, calm, beautiful, and fit as you are. I watched your video in which you answered questions we asked you on Snapchat, and you’ve given me the inspiration to keep pursuing my dream of becoming a scientist (and part time actress haha) and part-time blogger/Youtuber like you! At times financial problems seem to hinder what I would like to pursue in the future…but after seeing your emotional video and where you are now, I have high hopes! I hope your days are filled with happiness just as much as you and your videos fill mine with happiness. Please don’t ever stop making videos!!
    With much love,
    Amy

  • Norleah Tanseco says:

    Hey Teni,

    It’s actually my first time joining a giveaway contest like this and I decided to give it a shot coz you’re one of the amazing bloggers that I support. Let me list my 5 reasons why:

    1. I enjoy watching your videos be it a travel diary, a make up look or a how-to-style. You seem to always have something nice to share on your channel and I’m all about learnings.

    2. Can I just say that I LOVE that Turks and Caicos vlog you posted coz I’m a Lush employee, (a big Lushie too!) and we fight against animal testing. I don’t have any dogs but I do have a soft spot for animals and care about their well being.

    3. Like you, I’m rocking a tan! I am Filipino and was bullied about my skin color many times as I was growing up back home but I’ve learned to embrace it now and I feel confidently beautiful with a heart lol (Helllo Pia Wurtzbach!)

    4. It’s cute how your name rhymes with my age haha! (I know, it’s a corny joke BUT I really just turned 30 two months ago) Say it with me: AGE GRACEFULLY! #Proud30

    5. It’s 2 am here in Jersey and I have an early shift at work tomorrow but it’s ok coz I like checking your videos/blogs whenever I can.

    Thanks for reading my comment Teni! Hope to meet you someday.

    Xoxo,
    Norleah

  • Diana Roque says:

    Hi there…I’m pretty much new to your channel, and the reason I came across your channel was when I was desperately looking for guidance from someone on how to choose the right foundation. I went to ulta and they match me with the maybelline fit me foundation. So, I decided to go on YouTube to find a youtuber with the same match as me and came across you. I click play, and ever since I haven’t stop watching you. You see I’m new at getting used to putting on makeup, that I don’t really know exactly what I’m doing, so I try your tutorials and let me tell you. I love it, you are awesome and I like how you explain things. Thank you ❤❤❤✌

  • Danielle says:

    Teni!

  • Hi Teni!

    I’m Tin, one of your subscribers for Manila. I found your channel through your “best drugstore foundations” video and I’ve been hooked ever since. I just looooove that your style (in both fashion and beauty) is so classy. You stick to your style but your content is still exciting and informative. I also love that your overall energy is calm and positive–it turns my day around!

  • Ashley says:

    Ok so I tried to send you a snapchat didn’t work so I came on here. So I want to tell you I would have totally came to you meet and greet but I’m I’m Philly 🙁 … So my favorite memory is really not of you on youtube but on snapchat saying you work for your family and someone was bashing you (eww them). I though about my mom witch you remind me of so much she did so much for us and I was just so proud to hear you was no just taking care of yourself but others too so it made me feel good 🙂 love you teni hope to see you soon. ❤️

  • Marlaena says:

    Hi Teni!

    Thank you!

  • Kristina Lozano says:

    Hi! So I’m 35 I work full time in a very busy ER AND I attend college full time working toward my P.A
    I have one son who is in college now And I have four fur babies all American Bulldogs! Needless to say I don’t have a whole lot of “me” time these days….. Then I found YouTube….. And a new LOVE for makeup!
    Watching your videos and spending some extra time doing my makeup has now become my “me” time. It’s my de-stress, block all the noise, no midterm madness, not taking care of everyone else ME TIME.
    You have been a huge part of that and I wanted to say THANK YOU. You never know how much you really mean to someone else’s SANITY sometimes!

  • Yvette says:

    Hi Teni! I just love how positive you are. I love that no matter how hard it’s been to face a hard time with your friend u still keep positive about the hard situation and still show happiness through it all. It is a great example to us to have your positive mind and still smile no matter what. Thank you for inspiring us and showing us that we could do anything that we set our minds in. And for being a strong woman!

  • Jessica Joy Simbol says:

  • nicole roumi says:

    Hi teni iv been watching your videos since you actually started your channel about 4 years ago, I remember i first saw you on sona’s channel it was a bridal look. I love watching your videos because the energy that you give off. I love how natural it comes to you, you truly are inspiring, you are a hard working , strong woman just shows that hard work truly does pay off. Thank you for inspiring us all 🙂 and i know you said on snap that we don’t have to compliment you lol (snapchatfam!! 🙂 ), but how can we not! I have to say my fave videos would have to be how to BIG SEXY HAIR, and the strobing makeup natural. also congrats for almost one million susbscribers, so well deserved !! you are a hard working , strong woman you deserve it all. 🙂

  • Martina says:

    Hi teni!!! I’ m writing from Italy Since I’ve started watching YouTube videos, you have always been on my top list of people that I want to follow:) I don t know why but, odd to say, I associate you wth smokey eyes yes. To me, you are one of the kindest person on YouTube and I can truly feel your passion and sincerity when you are filming, even if a screen separates us. Be always as you are, don’t change. Keep in mind that you will always have us as supporters even from far away❤️ Fingers crossed

  • Denisse Armijos says:

    Hi teni! I remember when you didnt have a YouTube channel and Sona used to do your makeup for her channel, i particularly remember the bride makeup she did on you and i thought you were so gorgeous that i started following in your channel, so i have been around since the very veeeery begining
    Congrats!

  • Hilda Hernandez says:

    Hello Teni so my favorite part of the day is waking up to my snapchat and seeing the funny moments you snap. I really loved how you snapped your vacation and the fact that you said you loved ATV I love it too and knowing a beautiful woman like you did both beauty and ATV inspired me to do more makeup. So yes I really want to get more tips from you specially on skincare. Thank you for being such an inspiration.

    PS didn’t find a quad pic lol luv ya

    BTW how is your doggy after the chocolate did you find with one it was??

  • Anna Kawamura says:

    Greeting from Tokyo, Japan!
    When I first watched your video, your channel was not this big at that time but the editing was bomb and your makeup was amazing! It took just a second to fall in love with you. I love how you’re so classy and sexy, your fashion, the way you hold your makeup brushes (I know, so weird. lol.) I just love everything about you, Teni! Thank you for making us happy and inspirational in every time. And thank you for this amazing opportunity for international subscriber 🙂
    Always sending huge love <3

  • Karina says:

    Hi Teni! I want to congratulate you on your successful YouTube channel and it’s well deserved! You are such a beautiful woman inside and out and you really inspire me. Not only are you so extremely inspirational but you are so humble and so nice to watch. You’re so skilled and I love finding out new tips and tricks in makeup. I am a makeup artist but we always learn new techniques in the beauty community. I don’t make YouTube videos but I have always wanted to and don’t know where to start. I am looking into starting a channel and have to say, you really inspire me to do so. Thank you for giving back to your viewers <3 Love, Karina xo

  • Maureen OBrien says:

    I can honestly say I stumbled into your channel quite by accident with no idea what made me click to watch that first video. As I recall it wasn’t even a makeup video, it was what is now commonly referred to as a collaboration about food and entertaining..I don’t think this video is even up anymore and after following you for a while I have an idea why. Anyway, I remember thinking wouldn’t it be fun to have Teni as a neighbor, she’s fun, articulate, pretty and I don’t even mind the fact she’s a Trojan me being a Bruin and all (oops there goes my chance at any give away..no matter!) I just liked this person named Teni. This is NOT my usual response to people..I manage a group of 50+ people in an extremely high pressure industry and after a day of listening to these grown ups acting like children (the 2016 election sort of mirrors my daily office routine) I’m not really into “people” if you get my drift. I guess when you boil it down, I think you for as sort of my “pocket” friend, I can really be in a pissy mood, hassled, harassed, unappreciated and just beat then pull my phone out, watch your snaps and instantly know, hey..you’re NOT the only one..! Yes your makeup tutorials are exquisite, your lifestyle blog is inspired, your voice overs are intelligent and pleasant to listen to but that’s not why I watch because I actually know how to put on my make up…I just like the human you are..decent, hardworking, no bullshit human …At the end of the day it’s nice to have someone you can call a friend “in your pocket” …so thanks Teni !

    As for the giveaway, I’ve never won anything and I see no reason to start now (not that this would in anyway inspire you to pick me..) so if you’ve lost your mind and are considering me please offer to one of these sweet girls who probably struggle to make ends meet.. me I’m fortunate enough to have way too much makeup as it is and am content to enjoy being part of your “snap, insta, youtube, blog family!

    Cheers!

  • Andrea Paz says:

    Teni!! You have definitely become a nightly routine for me to watch on SNAP! I feel like I’ve made a friend though I’ve never even met you because I’m genuinely interested in what is going on in your day!! (When you have human moments… Like waking up feeling lazy, puffy, just not into it, or when you get into giddy moods are def my favorite!) Being an amateur blogger… Aka my mom and cousin/best friend may be my only followers, I love seeing people like you who have the same interest doing big things with something I’d love to do!! #majorinspo
    Hope I win!!! Fingers crossed!

  • Aira Batallones says:

    Hello Teni! Xx.

    Without a doubt, you are my all time favorite youtube makeup guru! The editing on your videos are amazing and simple, and all the looks you do, whether they’re bold, soft, neutral, colorful, or natural, they are all just so flawless. And although 85% of the time I don’t have the same products you use, I compromise by picking similar colored products just because your tutorials are so easy to get and they inspire me to get creative. I get so excited every time I see you post a new video, cause I know it’ll be an amazing one since you work so hard and try your best to give quality content. Please pick me! I’d love to try the products you love and use for all the tutorials you’ve done and will make. Plus, I’m a naturally tan lady. We got that similarity going! 😉

  • Nicole Pagkalinawan says:

    Hi Teni! I remember the first video I watched of yours was the Date Night Hair + Makeup Tutorial. I was just starting out with makeup so when I finally had all the tools I needed to recreate your look, it looked so horrible lol I was thinking “bruhhhhh, this is impossible.” But I stuck with it, continued to watch your videos in addition to other Youtubers, my skills have improved, and my love for makeup has grown tenfold. I didn’t start wearing makeup until my junior year in college! And now I wonder why it took this long for me to fall in love hehe
    I see it with people I know and memes on social media. Why do girls like to wear makeup in the first place? And I always think about you and other Youtubers I love. IT’S BECAUSE WE MF LIKE IT. It’s a woman’s me-time- her time to unwind and think only about what makes her happy and feel good.
    Teni, thank you for being an inspiration, not just #makeupgoals but #womangoals.

    Believe it or not you are one of the first youtuber I discover probably 3 years ago. Reason I still watch you are your personality and class you have, cus every single video is different not like the other youtubers, everything you do is just better,for class higher.And this is true these words does not need to sound like from some nerd trying to win the price,I said just what I think whether it’s giveaway or not.Sorry for my bad English, I am from far way Serbia but knowing everything about your yt community like I am here..

  • Odessa Liu says:

    HEY TENI!
    I’ve been watching your videos and following your blog for over a year now and honestly you are by far my favourite beauty guru. I am so inspired by your drive and ambition and how strong and independent you are. You inspire so many young women like me because of you are consistently true to yourself and have such a kind heart (especially for animals, which is really important to me too!) I’ve been wearing makeup since the super young age of 13 and ever since then I’ve been struggling to have the courage to embrace my natural beauty and just go out some days with a bare face. So many of your makeup looks are so effortless and natural and really embrace the natural features that make every girl beautiful and I can definitely say that your work has made a huge difference in my self-confidence. Plus, seeing you on snapchat so often with your naturally gorgeous face and confidence to step out of the house no matter what has really pushed me to do the same and embrace the au naturale!

    So THANK YOU so much for what you do. Even if I don’t get picked, I’m glad I had the opportunity to finally say this since this is the first time I’m ever commenting on any of your social media platforms. You deserve all of your success and I hope you continue to do what you do 🙂

    Sending lots of love from Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA! <3

    I’m struggling to think of my favourite video, I like too many! I’m currently studying as a makeup artist and honestly, I got into it because of YouTube. Watching makeup videos inspired my interest in all things beauty and of course, my favourite YouTuber was you. I was studying other things and I felt confused as to what I wanted to do but whilst watching your videos I could see the similarities between our personalities which encouraged me to go for what I truly loved doing. My ultimate favourite video of yours has to be “how I got clear skin”, my skin isn’t really spot prone but working with clients, it’s amazing advice to give them and share the knowledge you gave me. Oh and my other favourite is the ” ‘no makeup’ makeup”. I’m just mesmerised with the way you apply makeup and how natural you always look. Although, I love a pop of colour too. Like the jumper you wore in your makeup collection/storage video and how it matched your lip colour! Love it! I’ve been a subscriber since almost the beginning and I really aspire to be like you. Thank you so so much for just uploading videos and sharing content for us all to see, hopefully you know how appreciated you are and of course, congratulations on almost 1 million!

  • Kaitlyn says:

    I love your videos so much! This last year I have really gotten into makeup. I’ve always loved it, but now I see it as more of something I’m passionate about! It’s youtubers like you that have helped me learn and grow in my makeup skills and I really appreciate you for being a guide and a teacher! They’re so fun to watch and I always learn something new. It’s really nice that you demonstrate ways to do makeup naturally because that is more up my ally. I always recommend you to my friends because they look for the same thing. I think we have a lot in common because we both love makeup and love to lounge around with our dogs. Lol! I’ve never won a contest in my whole life so it would be really awesome to win makeup from one of my favorite youtubers of all time! And as a college girl on a budget, I could always use some new makeup! Lol. Love you, Teni!

  • Tina says:

    Hi Teni! First of all congrats on everything of course! I have have been a subcriber of yours for some time now and I was happy to hear about this giveaway thing! Partly of course for the actual giveaway, but also because I now have the chance to explain why I subscribe! I don’t actually subscribe to many YouTube channels, but you were an exception. Besides the obvious reason of talented makeup skills and awesome tutorials, the most important thing for me was your personality. Down to earth, sweet and very warm hearted! One particular video I love – and it’s not a makeup tutorial of yours because I have many favorites there- is your Q&A part 1. You let us see a bit more of who you are, and you only showed what I already knew, that you are sucb a beautiful person, and I don’t only mean looks. Another favorite moment of mine is on instagram, and it is a photo you posted some time ago about the issue with stray animals in Turks and Caicos. I love animals, probably more than humans, and in my country we also struggle with strays and neglect, and not many people care. The fact that you do care, and that you use your social media platforms to inform people on sensitive subjects like these means the world to me!
    Whether I win a giveaway or not, I am happy I got the chance to say these things to you. You’re an amazing person and you deserve the best! Nearly a million subscribers as well! Evident of what a great artist you are!
    All the best Teni!

  • Leia Clark says:

    Teni you are soo generous and gorgeous! You are one of the few beauty bloggers that has stayed true to their self and hasn’t let fame go to their head! You don’t post ad videos every day and when you do post the odd one it still feels honest. You are truly an inspiration and hope you have a great 2016! Ps love your makeup storage, I love organisation and watching those types of videos!

    Lots of love Leia

  • Milica Petrov says:

    Hi Teni, I’m a makeup loving mom from Serbia. I love your channel cause you are so nice, and down to earth, your makeup is wearable and most of the time suitable for most of us. My friends think of me as an eyeshadow hoarder but it’s not just makeup, it’s art isn’t it :)?
    Love,
    Milica

    • Samantha Lopez says:

      Hello Teni!
      I’m so excited for your giveaway!
      A memory from your channel that really sticks out to me was, in one of your vlogs, you went on a trip to NY about a year or a year and half ago and I remember, it was on the last day of your trip and you said that you felt really alone and you found yourself wondering the city alone and getting some pizza because, you didn’t know what else to do. I’m not to sure why, but that moment really stood out to me. Other then the fact that we both have a love for make-up and acting, I too feel alone at times. More times than I would like to admit to but in that moment, I realized I wasn’t alone in how I felt too! I know that others feel alone too but sometimes I forget that I’m not the only one that feel that way. Thank you for sharing that moment with us and being vulnerable on your channel! It means a lot to me when people are honest about how they feel and they share it on such a huge platform. Thank you!!! 🙂

  • Jessika Safra says:

    Girlfriend, your tutorials are the cats-meow! Not only have you improved my skills by simple suggestions in your tutorials but I recommend your YouTube channel to all my friends and family because you know Aunite needs to update her krusty 80’s lipstick and who better to show her how then you lol. I promise to share the wealth if I win. I look to forward to continue watching your journey. Thank you for always keeping it real and letting us get to know you.
    Best to you,
    Jessika

  • Aira Batallones says:

    Hello Teni! Xx.

    I mean it when I say, you are my all time favorite youtube makeup guru. You have been for quite a while now, and with good reason! The editing on your videos are simple yet amazing, and all the looks you do, whether they’re bold, soft, neutral, colorful, or natural, they are all just so flawless. And although 85% of the time I don’t have the same products you use, I compromise by picking similar colored products just because your tutorials are so easy to get and they inspire me to get creative. I get so excited every time I see you post a new video, cause I know it’ll be an amazing one since you work so hard and try your best to give quality content. On top of that, you’re such a genuinely sweet person. I’ve definitely seen that on snapchat. You give encouraging words and share who you are and your experiences. I’m so appreciative of how real you are. You’ll call out an issue when it should be and you tell it how it is. Which is why you’re my favorite youtube makeup guru. You’re an actual person and you’re relatable.

    Please pick me! I’d love to try the products you love and use for all the tutorials you’ve done and will make. Plus, I’m a naturally tan/colored lady too. We’ve got that similarity going on (;

  • Vanessa says:

    Thank you for the giveaway and congrats! I love your channel because you have so many beautiful looks. I feel like a lot of beauty gurus do very dramatic makeup and you do dramatic and everyday looks. I find you very calming to watch and I just love how most of your looks enhances your features. I get tired of all the heavy makeup now a days and I just find less is more.

  • Sheila says:

    Sending loooots of love from Spain
    You just made me want to declutter my makeup, and no one ever, not even my mum, made me do it.
    Love you!!

  • Dunja says:

    Good morning, Teni!
    The first thing that pops into my head is your Snapchat! I’ve developed a routine – whenever I feel like having a break, I go to Snapchat and kinda hope your snaps will be there. Why? Because I feel like I’m watching a good friend 😀 I like how honest you are and sometimes your snaps are the only ones I would watch. And your dogs are awesome. And your makeup. And I was thiking – you said this makeup storage video is not your best? Girl, your standards are so high I can’t even! 😉
    Keep up the good work and I’ll keep my fingers crossed to win 😉

  • Jen says:

    Hi Ms. Teni! I am done doing the ig comment/post. What can I say more? Your makeup looks are really doable, simple and sophisticated. A blogger and youtuber who just got it right, the right amound of everything! A lil sassy, classy, simple and daring. I think what I really loved the most is the simplicity of your videos and tutorials!
    Keep it up! We’ll be looking forward for your tutorials! God bless you always and stay genuine! Love from Philippines!

  • Jenna Coker says:

    I have been following you for awhile now. When I came up on you before I even started to follow you. I felt a connection with you meaning we have so much in common it seems like. You are beautiful from the inside out. I love all your videos and snapchats (snapchatfam). I love that you are genuine and have such a beautiful soul!! I love your natural looks to your smoky eye looks! I like how you interact with your followers, that speaks volumes. You are just so inspiring and I always look forward to watching your videos or snapchat! Thank you for being you! I’m just truly blessed to have came across you. Congrats on your million subscribers!! You rock!! ❤️

  • Svetlana says:

    Hello Teni,

    My name is Svetlana, and it was such a pleasure to meet you via YouTube. One million is a very beautiful number so as your channel.

    I just would like to point out and thank you for one particular video. And that would be CLEOPATRA. I truely think it is a piece of art, so stylish, sophisticated and unusual. And SHE, I’m sure, wouldn’t mind looking like that at all.

    All the best,
    Sincerely,
    S

  • Kristina says:

    Teni, you are absolutely beautiful, talented and inspiring!
    I want to say thank you for making your makeup tutorials suitable for everyday wear! I am a neutral girl just like you) Sometimes makeup on social medea can get extreme) You are the person who keeps it real!
    Keep on doing what you do! You are amazing!
    Lots of love from Russia 😉

  • Irma says:

    Hi Teni. Love watching your videos when I’ve had a really bad day. Puts me in good spirits and motivates me to be better. Also, love that your videos are so so informative. I’ve learned so much from you about skin care. My skin has never looked better. Also, my friends and I love watching your snaps together and of course discussing your comments lol. Love that you totally elevate females. #girlpower

  • Isabela says:

    Hi Teni! I hope you are able to see this.
    I want you to know that you are such a beautiful person inside and out. I look forward to your videos. Your videos are inspiring and very relaxing. I can’t choose my favourite video of yours because I love them all equally. But, the one video that I found was so creative and so beautiful was your cleopatra look. It was definitely a different look that isn’t the usual “cleopatra” and it’s so unique. I also very much enjoy your vlogs because they are so fun to watch it’s like i’m there with you AHHAHA but really, whenever I want to wind down and relax all I have to do is just watch your videos because I truly enjoy them. Your videos are so creative and minimalistic I love your aesthetic. You’ve gone so far in your journey and it’s been an honor watching you grow as a person. Thank you for everything. I love you and Keep doing you mwah <3

  • Ursula Power says:

    Hi teni, i’m a 30yr old mom of 2 lil boys from Ireland. I love watching your videos as your so inspiring to me, i love that your so positive, open and honest and the video that you we’re explaining how you’d been in really low places before and that its ok but you also need to pick yourself back up really touched me and made me cry as I’ve been there aswel. Also i feel i can connect with you i have been a vegetarian all my life and absolutely love animals, i’d love to get a dog for my boys, as growing up we always had animals around n i loved it and watching your videos and on snap chat you inspired me to look into adopting a dog for them 🙂 winning the make up would be amazing as i love make up and normally would have to save for ages to get products. have a lovely week and thanks for making me smile 🙂 xx

  • Danielle Garrido says:

    Hey Teni
    Just a college student athlete here that finds joy and entertainment from watching your makeup/beauty videos. I never get to dress up because balancing sports and academics is so time consuming and exhausting, but I would love to own and experiment with beauty products that would actually make me look and feel like a human being. I love the over the top, heavy makeup looks, however I often find myself drawn to your channel because it’s diverse and has more natural and relatable looks for your average every day girl (or boy). I also enjoy watching your snap story and I just think that you are a very kind and genuine person that is beautiful inside and out and I’ve been following you for quite some time. Anyways, thank you for your amazing content and efforts and just keep doing what you’re doing.

  • McKayla Dolly says:

    Alright, so, this is sort of hard to say. Especially when I know a lot of people are probably going to read this and think that I am an attention seeking whore. Please, excuse my language. But, anyways, my story.

    Last year on May 3rd, I locked myself in my room. I had had it with my life. I was done. Nope, not doing this anymore. Then, I locked myself in my closet. For about two hours after that, I just cried. I, under no circumstance, could stop crying. I felt embarrassed that I had cried for so long and so hard that my eyes felt sore, and that they were red and teary.

    After that, I wasn’t myself. I would wake up, go to school, and I felt like I had to force a smile every time my friends made a joke. Then I would come home and just lay in my bed. I didn’t want to get up. My legs, chest, face, everything quite literally felt numb.

    I started losing weight because I wasn’t eating. After school ended, I was locked up in my room all summer watching Netflix. I would wake up wanting to go back to sleep and never wake up again. First it was the depression. It just laid there and messed with my brain. It’s hard to explain.

    Then there was the anger. I was angry at myself for having such horrific thoughts and I wanted it to stop. It’s hard not to be angry at yourself when you don’t know why your first reaction is to grab a razor and cut your skin. At one point I even considered all of the options of suicide.

    At one point, I was laying at the foot of my bed singing (very horribly, mind you) about my horrible life. I would not stop crying. Literally. Eventually I crashed on my floor.

    After all of this, my confidence decreased majorly. I never went outside, and even though I never did I worried about my appearance. My nose is too big, my thighs are too fat, my hair is too frizzy, etc. All of these thoughts would make me want to punch a wall. I don’t know what was wrong with me, and I still don’t, but let’s not talk about that.

    One insecurity that still stands out is my eye color. It’s the classic brown, and I hate it. All of my friends eyes were blue and green, and I was just that one ugly duckling. I thought about that one eye color changing surgery, contacts, and then I just started searching up makeup tutorials for brown eyes. That’s how desperate I was. I thought that maybe, if I find someone who’s beautiful with brown eyes, I’ll feel more like myself again.

    So I went on YouTube and I found your “Brown Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial”. I fell in love with your voice and your talent immediately. I subscribed when you were still at about 600K subs, and for that I’m proud.

    Anyways, I just watched all of your videos and just fell in love. You were so graceful, elegant, inspirational, and beautiful. And you looked happy.

    Slowly, due to the inspiration you and a few other beauty gurus gave me, I got the courage to start facing my depression. I kicked it’s ass, thank you very much. I still suffer from my bad days, but somehow, in someway, I feel like one of your videos expressing your talent and beauty gave me the first of the courage I needed to announce that, yes, I am depressed. And yes, I am ready to accept it and get help.

    You said that you would be reading every entry, so hopefully you read this. I could care less if I win but I just thought that this is my chance to tell you what you did.

    Hopefully now you know that, in my opinion, you saved my life, Teni. Thank you.

  • Mercedes Polo says:

    Hi darling!first of all I want to thank you for sharing your knowledge and passion for make up. I discovered you by your Bridal make up tutorial. When I saw the video I thought that would be my make up if I ever get married…but one of my best friends is getting married on june and I’ve decided to make it on her. Last week we try it on and she was so abtolutely beautiful we cried! Thank you so much for create such an special memory!
    Lots of love from Spain,

  • JEN says:

    hola Ms. Teni! I am done doing the ig comment/ post. What can I say more? I'”m jen, a graduate of Interior Design, I was surprised when I saw you posted a video about designing a bathroom. I was like whoah! You are an inspiration, after graduation I found myself veering towards makeup and fashion. When I found out about your channel, I was captivated by the simplicity and authenticity of your tutorials that made me hit the subscribe button immediately. Boy did I know that interior design also interests you. I wanna be like you, simple and very sophisticated. I was wondering if i could be a designer and a makeup artist as well, and maybe you proved it right. Because being a designer is not far away from being an artist like myself. When I first saw you, I knew, maybe I could be both since arts and design has been my interest since then. It’s not like i am a legit makeup artist but putting makeup to myself is kinda fun for me. its an expression! Anyway, I would love to win a package! But it’s okay if you don’t pick me I know there are a lot who deserves to win the giveaway! God bless! keep up what you are doing! :))))) More power and stay positive always!

  • Mayra Monteon says:

    I believe that you are the reason I became fascinated with makeup, I had just graduated high school (yes, I guess you can say I am a late bloomer in the makeup world), I had just seen your first “no makeup” makeup tutorial, in which you went so in depth with what you were doing, that I became fascinated. Up until this point, I really had not known the metamorphosis of makeup, I literally felt like I had just came out of hiding from a bunker (probably being a tad dramatic), but I kid you not I thought makeup only consisted of black eyeliner and red lipstick. This was so comforting to watch because it was then that I realized people do have pores! they’re just hiding it under what I then learned was called foundation…I know very sad at my age, and this is considering I am from Southern California where I should have at least known about bronzer. It was a sad world before that 2011 video. Then I saw your first everyday makeup tutorial, and I felt the notch had just been turned 20x, I was in awe. Quite literally, you made makeup look so natural, and I am so glad you were my introduction, or else I probably would have piled on cakes of it and graduated to “baking” before even learning the basics you taught. To be honest, that was in relation to makeup, but it truly was when I saw your get to know me video, where you talked about foster dogs, and I fell in love with your humbleness and passion and how that radiates through every video that you put out. So it is because of you that I can now open the front camera on my phone and not be to alarmed… Overall you are amazing at what you do, makeup, empowering and all that jazz. 🙂

  • Dana A says:

    hi Teni,

    just wanted to let you know that you have followers from far away. i’m from Israel. My sister and i are following you for years.
    it started when i saw your tutorial for smokey eyes – it was bold and beautiful and i liked the colors of the eye shadows you used, it was different. so since then i follow you and see how your videos get more and more professional.
    Another reason i like to follow you is because we have similar skin tone so it’s easy for me to see myself wearing the same look.
    keep doing such a good work!

  • Julieta Manukian says:

    Hi, Teni!
    OK, so the very first memory that I have is how I found your channel. Well, technically my mom did. She found one of your videos, and since she doesn’t know English she called me, so I can translate. The funny thing is that, she described you as “this Armenian looking girl” . We’re Armenians ourselves, so obviously I got super excited about finding your channel! And ever since (I think it’s been a year or so) my mom keeps asking whether Teni has posted a video or not, so we can watch it together. + your eyeliner tutorial has been a saviour for me! I do my friends’ makeup, so that helped a lot! This is basically my first and favourite memory. Sending lots of love from Yerevan xx

    P.S. my mom says hi

  • Christina Tran says:

    The first time I stumbled across your videos on youtube was when I was searching for a glowy bronzed summer makeup tutorial! When I saw your thumbnail I instantly thought; OH MY GOD who is this girl!!!! You looked so radiant and flawless, and honestly though, your highlight could be seen from outer space! I subscribed immediately, it was such a well created video and the look was everything I wanted to to achieve! Still to this day you’ve got such a positive attitude in all your videos and your glowing tan skin is to die for 🙂 Thank you for always being such a lovely youtuber and all the tips and inspiration you’ve given for us, your viewers 🙂 x

  • Kaat Brouwers says:

    Teniiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! Hi girl! I’m superexcited for you to throw this giveaway (by the way you’re so smart not to put it in the title of the video, only the real subbies heeeeeeeey). Let me stop rambling and get on with my best and most precious memory concerning you and your awesome channel! Wait for it… It’s the FIRST EVER VIDEO of yours I watched, “How To BIG SEXY HAIR!”. That one must have made a huge impact because I still remember it like it was yesterday while actually you filmed it three years ago, WOW! Also, this means you must have been one of the first youtubers I subscribed to because I’ve only had a youtube-account for three years, yay! Look at us, still going strong after so long already 😉 Anyway, I think I nailed that hair by now, though you will always be my hairstyle queen! Love what you’re doing, so please never stop! Lots of love from Belgium <3

  • Dia Smith says:

    Hi Teni,
    I’m an Aussie girl, following your Youtube channel for a long time now; I learnt most of my make-up tips and tricks from you and always tried to follow your style! My husband and I relocated to Phoenix recently and I am so excited that I am in the States and already hoping and looking forward to seeing you during a fan ‘meet n greet’ event. I’m a Plaid girl and loved your ‘Plaid party’ videos!! I do enjoy your travel vlogs as well; however the one which struck a chord with me and brought tears to my eyes was the ‘Turks and Caicos travel diary.’ You talked about that poor stray dog on the beach and I could feel the pain in your voice and your love and empathy for them shone through. I love animals and have worked with animal rescue centers in the UK and Australia and I was so happy that you talked about them in your vlog. Love you Teni… you deserve your million subscribers and here’s wishing you millions more!! <3

  • Evelin Angermayer says:

    Hy Teni!

    Your tutorial on how to create a wing liner was life changing for me. I’ve always been insecure about my deep set eyes but that bat wing shape make the line straight. Love it!

    Yay I love your videos and I love that you didn’t post this video as giveaway! I’m so glad that I discovered you on YouTube

  • Ana says:

    Hey Teni! I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart because your smokey eye youtube was the first smokey eye tutorial that made any sens to me at all. 🙂 It’s still one of my favorite youtubes out there!

  • Michelle Albano says:

    Wooo!! That was a long trip down to the comment box. 😛

    Hey Teni! I just want to say what an inspiration you are to us viewers. you always make us feel special on your snaps or just whenever you can. You are humble and talented. You have reached your full potential that’s why we’re here watching you, trying to do the same and having you as a role model to help us reach the same path.

    I know one day, when I walk down the isle (hopefully this year), I will wear the makeup in your Bridal tutorial(my most watched video I always come back to). I’ve already been practicing it since it first came out. I will send you a photo of my wedding, hopefully soon!!

    I don’t know if you remember but you were in Cabo in 2015 and stayed at Pueblo Bonito Sunset beach. I used to work there and wanted soooo bad to take a photo with you but you were with your friends and my shyness just enveloped me. 🙁 Hopefully one day I see you again! Regardless if I win or not, thank you so much for everything that you do, Teni! You’re awesome! Never change, only for the better!! Love ya!

  • Tiffani says:

    My last post was posted before everything was written but I am soooo glad I stumbled upon your channel. I remember when you did your bridal tutorial makeup 2 years ago and went back to use that exact same look for my small wedding ceremony this year! Thanks so much for the time you put into making these tutorials for us.

  • Alba says:

    Hi Teni! I’m Alba from Madrid, Spain. I have been following you for such a while now on youtube. A funny fact I have with you and your channel is that you are the person I think that has the most correct concealer. I mean I wacth a lot of turorials and they all use concealers a lot ligther than their skin tones but you use the perfect one! I have been amazed by that since the first tutorial I saw of you. In fact any time I look for a concealer I need for it to look as it looks on you (I have like a memory of how unblended concealers looks on you for real hahaha). By the way I LOOOVE your channel. You also have a great style I mean you could be bad at fashion but you seem to be great at everything I’m so jealous! Love you!

  • ASDGIK BALIKCIOĞLU says:

    Hi Teni,
    I met you on YouTube 2 years ago. Actually I began watch YouTube videos and make up tutorials with you. I was having quite a rough time because I had my wedding (which didn’t happen) and you know it is a very stressful period. You want to look great on that day and I wanted to look gorgeous. I had had my make up done for a few times in the past but I didn’t like any of them. I decided to find a nice bridal make up. AND YOU CAME UP!!! The first tutorial I watched was yours. I watched your Bridal make up tutorial and enjoyed every second of it. I watched it for maybe 20 times. You looked how I wanted to look like on my wedding day. I watched all your other videos. It was great fun. From that day on I watch your videos and I look forward to watching them. You ara so friendly and so kind and I feel that you are like a close friend who lives in LA. ☺️ You are doing a great job.
    Kisses from Istanbul

    Teni,

    One of the first things that drew me to your channel was that you are a fellow Trojan. I loved your enthusiastic, caring soul and it drew me instantly.

    A few weeks ago, you spoke at a panel at USC and I tried my hardest to get off work to go. I didn’t make it, but I loved that you said you would be back.

    One of my favorite memories that has resonated with me, was the video titled “How to Start a Youtube Channel/Blog”.

    For so long, I have been dreaming about beginning my own beauty channel and never built up the courage. Still haven’t. Each time I watch you, you give me just the littlest amount of courage that is pushing me to follow my passions.

    Thank you for all your candidness and all the laughs over the year. I hope one day to actually meet you and have accomplished my passion of having similar success on Youtube.

    With Love,
    Elyana

  • Michele Ciulla Chambers says:

    Teni,
    I’ve been watching you since your channel started. I’ve always loved your personality & your natural beauty. I love that you tend to do more natural makeup tutorials, that let’s your natural features & skin show. You are alot like me with eye shadow that I don’t like a real dramatic eye. Your eyeliner is always on point. I love that you teach to enhance your natural beauty not cover it with tons of products. I also discovered & started using Ole Hendrickson products because you always rave about them. Your organizational skills are on point alot like me I have to have everything in it’s place & I will be ordering those drawers. Also love how you talk about having recluse tendencies on Snapchat. I swear you were my sister in another life.

    Hi Teni! I came across your channel when I was searching for eye makeup looks for brown eyes and have been hooked ever since. I subscribed almost immediately because of your personality and I am a person who does everything on the basis of my instincts and the vibes I get, whether choosing a course of study, a place to work or subscribing to a Youtube channel!
    I love how you explain everything so well while being goofy and positive. I love how happy, excited and energetic you are while not being annoying. Yours is the most real channel I have come across and you manage to lift my mood every single time. I love binging on your videos and hearing that calming voice of yours. Do keep up the great work and thank you for brightening my days!
    Love.

  • Tatiana says:

    TENI! Im sooooo ready to celebrate with you when you hit your million!!! (: Im so proud of everything you’ve done! i remember watching you a few years back and to see where you’re at now makes me truly believe that ANYTHING is possible! you’re amazing!

  • Maria Kan says:

    Hey Teni I LOVE YOUR BLOG !!!

    What I really really loved and made me even more obsessed with your videos and channel in general was that in your vlog from Turks and Caicos you were THE ONLY ONE and I mean THE ONLY ONE that mentioned the rescued puppies … I mean I literally cried because recently my little dog died and being emotional as i was seeing you hugging those little fellas made my heart a million pieces and I rewatched this part soo many times just to see your face when you were looking that little puppy.

    Love you Teni just keep being the awesome person that you truly are and keep inspire us this way. <3

  • Asma Naqi says:

  • Virginia P says:

    Dear Teni,
    I don’t envy you for having to chose only 1 person amongst all these beautiful and supportive people and their touching stories.
    I’m glad you receive all that support – you deserve it.
    I’m also glad that you are able to make others happy and spread joy through the social media. Because very often what people need is someone showing appreciation for their support or effort or whatever it may be.
    Please keep on being inspiring and make others smile.
    Greetings from Denmark.

  • Hi, Teni!

    Honestly, you are the first person, blogger, who I’ve started following on youtube, instagram, facebook also. I’ve subscribed for many other wonderful bloggers after, but what I like the most in you, what makes you my favorite, is that you are such an open, polite, and kind person, and that what I can truly feel through your tutorials, or chatty videos, vlogs and etc.
    I remember that Snapchat Q+A video (part I I believe), that touched me the most. I’ve seen that you are not only a fashion/make up guru, you are not only a successful blogger, but you are also a real person, who has her own problems, who had difficulties in the past, who went through a lot things, and who had courage, strength to pass through everything. And I really appreciate your honesty. That what makes us more then just a youtuber and a subscriber. That what makes us friends. I mean, like in that Avril Lavigne song “I’m with you”. I felt that, and I thank you for that. For everything you do for me, for us, your youtube family ))). Thank you. Just continue the way you do ))). You are doing great! I love you!

  • Hi Teni , I just watched your snaps and they remainded me why I love your videos. You are so beautiful and funny , but what I like the most is that I can relate to you in some way . In the snaps you were smiling and giggling because it was late , but that is exactly what I do when I’m tired and but still so much to so my reaction is to giggle even though nothing is funny . Except for that I love your fashion sense, that cape you wore to fahion week I think is my apsolute favorite. I remember looking at a snap of different youtubers and seeing you there and I was mesmerized. You truly are my spirit animal , I love seeing you travel and getting so much makeup and using it in the best way. Im just a little disappointed that I can’t get them here in Bosnia and Herzegovina but it’s ok I can still do some great look with different products available here. Love you girl, keep being you. My doggie Koby and I say send you and your dogs lots of love

  • moudhi says:

    hello Teni
    honestly your channel pulled me out of my darkest periods of my life. I joined your channel in 2013 by just googling and I loved the way you talk and the simplicity and natural looks you do. In 2014 I had rough year: difficult marriage, two young kids on my own , financial problems and school to finish!! was going crazy and honestly what kept my going were my two kids and your channel. every single weekend I play one of your videos after I put my kids to sleep and just copy your look and I felt beautiful, feminine. I started to master some of your natural looks and wear them, and that made me in a better mood….even my husband who at that time was considering divorce commented that I never looked better….You saved my marriage and my life…I have my family now because of you and thats worth a million thanks…so thank you for the hope and beauty in my life…

  • Luana A says:

    Dear Teni!
    First of all I’d like to say that I won’t write a long comments because I would like to keep it simple, not to exaggerate. I would like to tell you the truth: I love your videos really especially because you don’t change your attitude because of your fame, you stay natural and that’s what your followers love, me too :* As well I wanted to say that the natural make up videos are inspiring me because I don’t like putting every day so much make up on. But I think it’s a positive mixture of natural make up and exceptional make up. For events are they just right, the exceptional make up tutorials.
    Love ya!
    Hugs from Germany ♥

  • Simona says:

    Oh Teni, i have seen your new tutorial on yt yet and now thats my chance to explain why i´m so obsessed with you. Especially you are a big inspiration for me. I´m 25 years old now and sometimes I think ” Oh no, I have to do something with my live now, but my plans are still in process” . I´m back in school for a few month and want after I want to study and hope my future will start this year. So, your are older than you look and in some of your yt videos you told about your live and how old you are and some people around you saying like “your so / to old….ect,” and the same thing / words are in my too. Than you told to be “relaxed” , after 30 your life isn´t over. So that was the kind of thing I have to heare to calm down and focus back on my dreams. Your are such a beautiful person with so beautiful word and an amazing heart for animals, wich I love the most on you 🙂 You are a different kind of blogger / make – up tutorial youtuber and this is why I obsessed with you :)).
    I´m wisching you the best, and sry for some grammar mistake, I´m from Germany 😉

    Go on Girl <3

  • Rachel Jackson says:

    There are so many reasons I feel like you’re different to other youtubers. Your vlogs really bring out your caring personality (when in Turks and Caicos and seeing the poor stray dogs, I’m totally a dog lover and it really made me sad but more aware ) The effort you also put into your vlogs is incredible and it really shows! I love how you also talk about relatable problems, like weight and skin texture, however your makeup and skills are so amazing and you give great tips and advice. One of my favourite tutorials you ever did was a while back, it was something like a sunset inspired smokey eye with reds and browns, and I have gone back and watched it so many times! Anyway we shouldn’t have to be saying all this for a giveaway as you are amazing and deserve the praise regardless. But thank you so much for your generosity and for the opportunity to win some goodies I wish I could meet you one day but I live in the UK

  • astou says:

    Hi Teni !!!
    Thank you for all the tips and makeup tutorials, you are real inspiration for me that just started in this world of makeup.
    I’m following you since 2 years now and i’m still in love with what you’re doing !
    Love from France 🙂

  • Alyssa Maniago says:

    Hi Teni,

    I just wanted to say that when I first met you (which I might have met you when I was younger lol), I was actually really nervous to talk to you and I didn’t really want to bother you (I’m really shy). I am hoping one day when I know what I sort out what I want to ask you, I will try and ask. As I watched your videos over time, you really inspire me with your hard work and the big heart that you have. I was always told how nice and sweet you are, and I can see it through your videos and social media. Since you are super duper busy, I know that it is hard for you to create time. Watching your videos and social media just shows that I have to work really hard. Doing what you do is a dream job, and I’m so glad that I can look up to you as a role model. You are everything I want/ed to be. I’m just like you, before, in the sense that I have a really hard time being open in my videos. I am working on that. Seeing your personality shine in your videos keeps me motivated to keep doing it.
    Thank you for being so sweet to me when you first met me! One thing we have in common is our LOVE for dogs! Lol.

    Hope to talk to you soon! <3

  • Melissa Tieko Muramoto says:

    Hi, Teni!
    Please just be my friend, would you?!?! I first started following you through YouTube, mas honestly felt in love with you through snapchat. Feel we have so much in common, I mean, it’s really hard to believe our personalities match so much! You are gorgeous, but most of all, I sense you are a truly integrity person and that’s, in these days, are the most original and positive thing to follow! Love you! Be happy!

  • Shamika says:

    Hi Teni!
    I’m 21 years old from Australia, when I was 18 I was in my first year of university and I would attend all these university balls and other events and would always go to Mac and pay $90 to get my makeup done. Every time I’d leave Mac not very satisfied with my makeup and feeling like it didn’t suit my skin colour or it didn’t go well with my eye shape and I was just wasting my money. So I decided to buy my own makeup and learn how to do it myself. So I turned to YouTube to learn a few things and I came across a video of yours for a gold smokey eye from 3 years ago (December 27th 2012 to be exact) and I swear that video changed my life. I watched that video so many times and did my makeup based on that video for a Uni ball and I loved it soo much! To this very day that video is my favourite makeup video on YouTube and my favourite makeup look to do on myself! So Thankyou so much Teni for helping me feel soo much more confident about myself and my makeup! You are actually changing lives 🙂 even if I don’t win your giveaway I’m a hug fan and I love your work!! xoxo

    i’m in love with your natural look , I’m from Egypt and any new video you are upload , I share it with my friend … love u .. that’s all

  • Nino Moshiashvili says:

    Dear Teni! I’m your subscriber since the time when the total number was about 10k 🙂 You’re absolutely right, we’ve grown together. There are so many channels with different content on YT, it’s quite hard to choose good ones, worth subscribing and watching. So many fake moments, opinions, so your channel is like a breeze of fresh air in the megapolis. I live in Georgia, not state, country (capital Tbilisi) and I have several Armenian descent friends, one of them is Inessa, my best friend. We used to work together for 10 years. She’s the most beautiful person both inside and out I’ve ever met in my life and you have so much in common, so I feel some connection with you, it may sound silly, but it’s true. I wish you all the best in your life!

  • Celine says:

    Of all the makeup gurus on Youtube, you are one of the most influential ones out there. I’ve been subscribed to your channel since those blue painted walls in your room. And since then, I will say that you have grown so successfully on YouTube. Each and every video you post continues to inspire and inflate my love and passion for makeup. Your techniques are always natural and minimal, compared to the various makeup artists who blotch on a ton of makeup on their faces. You’ve enlightened me to keep my natural beauty, enhancing them with makeup beautifully and minimally, instead of concealing and completely restructuring my whole face. You’re the brains and the beauty of YouTube, and still remains as professional as possible. Continue this journey; you never cease to inspire us.

    Thank you for being my idol,
    Celine

  • Nimisa Kotoki says:

    Hi Teni,
    I’m a new subscriber and I have been watching your videos since the last month or so and I have been really liking them a lot:)I love the way you apply your makeup and achieve a flawless finish and also the way you talk too,haha!umm,I am from a small town in north-east India,and except a few revlon and maybeline products you don’t really get a lot here so it would be really nice to try out some new makeup from other brands:)I’m a young girl so I will obviously give most of the stuff to my elder sister who is in college and my mum:)(that is if i win of course:P) and by the way,i really really admire your fashion sense,I find it really elegant,classy and yet very stylish as well:)
    so yeah,I don’t want to write much except that i wish you a lot of success in the future,whether it is in youtube or anywhere else and i hope you have a really fun and happy week ahead!
    stay well:)

  • Sandra Seka says:

    Back in 2012 (or even 2011?!) I was searching online for a Halloween Cleopatra Look and I came across a video, where someone (I don’t remember anymore who it was) filmed a tutorial for this look and you were the model 🙂 Then I heard about your blog and started to read it regularly and the first look I’ve recreated was a bridesmade look 3 or 4 years ago 🙂 I love your personality and that you have these strong (Armenian) features (e.g. hair) because I can relate to it (I am Serbian). I would love to win, due to the fact that a lot of brands aren’t available in Germany and we have to order from the US and have to pay triple the price because of shipping and taxes! 🙂

    143 and keep doing you! <3

  • Jessica Sylvia says:

    Nothing beats your bronze smokey eye! Lots can do it but none wear it as well as you!!

  • Martina says:

    Hey Teni! I’ll never forget the moment when I watched your How To Apply Eyeliner video back in 2013, cause after watching it I actually learned how to wing my eyeliner! I am so happy that I follow you cause you are a true teacher when it comes to applying make up! And I know you’ve learned it all by yourself! You are amazing and beautiful Teni and you have beautiful teeth as well by the way!!

  • Matilda says:

    Greetings from Sweden

    Dear Teni,

    I’ve been following your channel for about three years now, for me that’s quite a long period of time.
    You are one of the most emporing and genuine woman there is on Youtube in my opinion. I can’t thank you enough for being just YOU.
    There was one video that really inspired me, that’s the one with you solving your skinproblem, I learned a lot from that and I could really use that as a guide for my own way to better looking skin.

    I don’t wanna make this way too long, just know that the things you put out there, really does make a positive change in our lives. You do you boo, and I will do it too.

    Keep up the good work, and the days you doubt yourself, just read all these beautiful comments you get from your wonderful subbies.

    Lots of love,
    XoXo ❤️

    Matilda

I’m a makeup addict now from watching your videos and am constantly re watching videos over and over again! Thanks for everything! Xx

    Hey Teni! First off, I just wanna let you know that you are absolutely amazing. Such a down to earth person ❤️ Your makeup is literally ALWAYS flawless. I bought my first ever Naked Palette (Naked 3) because of your wedding makeup tut. Practically obsessed over buying it since I watched it lol. Still my go to look for ANY special occasion

  • Ericka Zhamkochyan says:

    You are so stunning and inspirational. I love watching your videos or having you on in the background while im doing my own makeup because your voice is so calming. I also love that youre armenian, i wish there were more people i could relate to doing youtube. Love you

  • Elin Haag says:

    Good morning Teni! (At least it’s morning in Sweden where I live so I’ll go with that)

    I’m just going to jump straight into my story. I’m a makeup junkie. I’m also an IB student, which may or may not tell you something about my lifestyle, but what it means is that I study A LOT. So you may ask; what is my goal? Well, after my IB diploma I’m going to study medicine, so my motivation is really being able to help people. Controversially I’m also tattooed, pierced and contoured, which makes some people belive that I’m less capable of entering such a profession. I say screw them.

    How your channel enters the picture is that watching makeup videos is my relaxation. Makeup is my hobby, and of course biology. Its my way of entering a community that doesn’t talk about genetical diseases or methylation. Furthermore, congratulations if you’ve managed to read through this text about my life and hobbies. I’d love to win the makeup. It would be so much fun to play with and it would really boost my inspiration.

    Love, Elin

  • Soultana says:

  • Louise Hughes says:

    Hi Teni,
    Congratulations on almost reaching 1 million subscribers. I love watching your videoes and reading your blog.
    My most memorable moment of you was watching your ‘Summer Bronze Glow Makeup’ tutorial, you said you didn’t like to draw attention to your nose, and I was literally think right before you said that – God I wish I had Teni’s nose!
    It’s funny how differently we must see ourselves!
    Thanks again for your amazing content,
    Louise x

  • Sonal Madhoo says:

    Hi Teni 🙂
    Love your videos <3 I think the thing I love most about your videos and style is commitment to preserving one's natural beauty. Your video always maintain an elegance and sophistication, that I aspire to – it is definitely something different. I find that most easy to relate to and actually try myself on a special night out or for an everyday look. I love that 🙂 Unfortunately the beautiful products often shown on your channel are not available in South Africa, and for that reason it would be amazing to win some of them. Thank you for the constant source of inspiration and lessons on how to bring out your best you! xx

  • Charlie Scarlett says:

    Hey, I’ve been watching your channel for so long now. Its your channel that is that made me fall in love with make up. seeing how passionate you are about make up inspired me. the first video i watched of yours i can still remember now. It was about 3 years ago and i think it was an everyday make up routine, i remember searching make up tutorials for the very first time because id only got my iPhone that birthday, ands thats when i really discovered how magical youtube was.
    I love your work so much and i could never thank you enough for posting so many incredible videos.

  • Edith Martinez says:

    Teni,
    The fact that you take the time to read all of your YouTube subscribers and multiple sources of social media followers comments blows my mind. You were the first of a handful of vloggers I started watching, however you quickly became the only one I actually subscribed to! You have the ability to make tutorials of pro makeup looks so easy for the average woman and your knowledge of products is also very helpful, especially for those of us who often times just want to go bare-faced. I’ve never felt as comfortable as I do now at the age of 26 walking around without makeup, so I must also thank you for your skincare videos! (I’m obsessed with Murad). I know I’m not your only follower who believes you are as real as can be, you seem so grounded and effortlessly true to who you are. Aside from being a beauty and fashion vlogger I believe more than anything, you’re an excellent example of what young girls and older should strive to be. Thanks for simply being you Teni!
    Also, keep up snaps of your travels as I live vicariously through you ❤

  • Kudzai Mutembwa says:

    Hi Teni!!

    I have been watching you for years now and it is lovely to see that all your hard work and effort is paying off. I am so excited that you are finally going to hit 1 million subscribers soon! So automatically, 2 memories jump out to me. There is one video where you did a Bronzed winged eyeliner. THAT SLAYED MY LIFE! I didn’t know that a winged eyeliner not using the traditional black or darker color could look so fantastic. It was simple, clean but it really popped!

    One of my favorite things about you is that I feel like we have grown together. It’s wonderful to see your success and see you living out your dreams. I had always thought you were slightly closed off. This is not to say we as followers and subscribers had to know everything that was happening in your life but the one video where you opened up was really emotional for me. It was your Snapchat Q&A. It’s so easy to think that because you show us one side of your life through YT and various platforms that you don’t go through the same day to day problems of trying to find yourself in this huge world that many times can seem extremely intimidating. Thank you for sharing that side of you. It made me laugh and cry and feel like at the end of the day, we all need each other. Win or not, I want you to know that you are an amazing lady because of who you are inside and you have impacted so many lives, including my own!

    Keep shining Xo

  • Madeleine Hopkins says:

    Hi Teni,
    I stumbled upon your YouTube channel when I was looking for a Halloween look. Halloween isn’t such a big think in Australia so I was looking for something a little creepy but original and still kinda cute. I did your Little Red Riding Hood look and it was amazing, I got a ton of compliments! After that I was hooked, I think I binged watched pretty much all your videos that weekend and have been a big fan ever since!
    I would post a photo but I don’t think I can on here, i might pop over to Facebook and try there.
    Thanks for the Halloween help! xx

  • Samantha says:

    Teni I love all of your videos. I have been subscribed for over a year now and I watch every video. I am from Scotland and I love watching all of your hauls and your 1920’s inspired make up look. Thank you for making your videos for all of us to see.

  • Carmen Müller says:

    Teni, I love your YouTube Channel. I am from Germany and I dont have the chance to buy most of the famous makeup brands, but I love to watch your Videos anyways. You are so unique and trough Snapchat I saw how kind you are with your dogs and friends. At most I love your Fasion Lookbooks (please do more!) and all that interior design stuff. I hope and pray that you never give up that talent or loose that kindness. We all know that YouTube today is a very critical platform and a place with so much hate and jealous people. But I will pray for you 🙂 your work is amazing! Xo Carmen.

  • Clarissa says:

    Hi!

    It’s Clarissa from Sydney, Australia I have been watching your videos religiously for about 2.5 years. My favourite memory when I think about your YouTube videos , is some-what to do with your actual video but mostly my experiences while watching your videos.

    For a while now it has been a rule that my friends and I would go to each other houses and watch your videos. We would fully immerse ourselves in either your tutorials, reviews, travel journeys or tours. Whatever mood we were in that day would be erase and would be recording over-selves doing make-up tutorials soon after (we are 20 years old btw!). I love that I always have something accessible to me that can be light-hearted and fun, thank you for that.

    My favourite video though hands down your Turks and Caicos travel video because who can’t appreciate a quality video like that and it and you looked AMAZING!!

    P.S. You know you are obsessed when you scroll through your videos and realise every video says ‘WATCHED’.

  • Chana Jenkins says:

    Dear Teni,
    first of all I would like to say that I’m from Germany, therefore my english is probably pretty bad! Hope you still understand what I’m writing.
    To me you are just such a huge inspirational person. You helped me start my own Blog even if I just started at the beginning of this year! I think it’s been about two years by now since I first saw a video on your YouTube Channel. From the first second I just fell in Love with you. You are just such a wonderful an nice personality and I hope that I might once meet you.
    Stay the way you are with your gorgeous way of making your videos and staying in touch with your audience.

    Much Love from Germany,
    Chana

    Your so sincere and sweet that’s why I watch your YouTube channel.

  • Laura says:

    Hey, Teni! I admire you for being the only beauty youtuber that is professional yet your personality shines in every video. You don’t ramble about shallow things on your channel. You seem to be honest, modest and sensible. You inspire me to not be afraid of being strong, independent woman, because you are the best example of how gorgeous goddess can be extremely smart and intelligent (while it seems that our society thinks that it’s not possible… Well, just look at you:) I appreciate that you care about animals, environment and health. You are a great great inspiration for young women and I hope that you will continue making videos! Love you 🙂

  • Meraiah says:

    Hi teni! I’ve been subscribed to you for about 8 months or so. I am subscribed to soooooo many beauty you tubers and what stands out to me about you is your genuinity and uniqueness in how you apply your makeup. You don’t follow EVERY trend and I love that. You really cater to what you know YOU like on yourself and that’s really admirable. In a world where people feel like they always have to conform to the latest trends and try things that they may not even like but do just to fit in, it’s refreshing to see you be so true to yourself. Thanks for being you.

  • Stefanie Ruhland says:

    Hey Teni! 🙂 Your makeup looks are always on point, you inspire me! I love to watch all of your videos, because you are such a sweet person and I think your personality is so nice!

  • Rand says:

    hey teni , so first of all i’m kina sure i will not win because i dont know how to express and write any emotional or influential words hhhhhh. but i’m gonna say that all of your videos are my favorite especially the get to know me videos , i love how you be yourself .

  • Megan Chapman says:

    Hi Teni,

    You was the first make up artist I ever watched and ever since then I can’t stop! I watched one of your drugstore videos because I’m not one who can spend spare money on make up so I’m always looking for good cheap products. Whenever I’m stressed with family drama or university work I just chill out, eat dunk and what your videos (this always helps).

    I would like to say thank you for this, Ive never directly spoken to you or interacted with you apart from now but your videos do make a difference and I just wanted you to know that I appreciate you taking your own time to do this special thing for others! I hope you have the time to read my message,
    Love Megan x

  • Rochelle says:

    Hi Teni!
    I can’t believe you’re almost at a million, it’s so amazing to think back to when I first started watching you at a few hundred thousand. I distinctly remember when I watched your first video thinking ” Is that Kim K?” I was so mesmerized ( and a little confused ). I’ve always loved the way you’ve done your tutorials with such high quality and class.

    Can’t wait to see what you do in the future!
    Love from New Zealand,

    Dear Teniiii, I have been following you for so long!! I actually never though I would be eligible for some sort of giveaway and I am soooo excited to even have the chance since I am currently living in Slovenia ( doing my master degree here) but in fact I am from the Republic of Macedonia ( most probably you have never heard of! even though is in Europe just next to Greece ). I love your channel you are such an inspiration to me even though my life and career (Finance) has nothing to do with beauty or makeup. I think that the reason you are my favorite person out there is the fact that I can relate to your personality sooooo much!! I love your beauty tips and tricks (mainly because of the fact that I have kind of a dry skin same as you :))) ) Most of everything I enjoy your snapchats because most of the time I can relate to your mood!! I would loveee to be able to receive some of the beauty product because most of them are unavailable in the countries I live however seeing all this comments I dont really thing I will have the chance since being in the Financial area makes me a totally not creative person when it comes to something like this! 😀 I just hope you will read this and know how much of an influence you have even in places you have never heard or thought of :))))) loveeee you sooo much and I wish you to keep doing what you do since you are such a positive role model!!! :****

    Hi Teni !

    The memory that I have with your channel is when I just bought the first Urban Decay Vice Palette. I went on youtube to watch a tutorial to have some ideas of what I could achieve with such a range of colors, and I found your video. It was a purple and pink eyeshadow tutorial. I don’t think you still have it on your channel. This was one of the first, if not the first, beauty videos I watched on Youtube. I immediately loved your video and watched all your others video. You’re the first beauty channel that I subscribed too, but I have to say that watching your videos from France is a little frustrating because we don’t have access to all the brands you’re showing and I’m jealous of the Californian weather hahaha!

    I hope you reach the million very soon! Thank you for the giveaway and sorry for my english!

    Love from France!

    Hi Teni!

    When I first saw you in the four Halloween videos on the channel “I love makeup” I fell in love with you. I just loved how you seemed so happy, and not to speak about your makeup skills! I clicked in to your channel and became a subscriber immediately. It’s hard to pick just one favourite video, but if I had to it would probably be the “Good Girl vs. Bad Girl featuring Desi Perkins! I love both your personalities, and I think we would make a great sqaud The combo of my two favourite talented babes in one video is the best. I also love to follow you on your trips with your squad on snapchat. I basically love your personality, the way you look (oh, my gosh) and how talented you are!

    Much love

  • Yiwen Seifert says:

    Hey gorgeous!
    CONGRATS on almost 1M on YT! You truly deserve all the successful and love.
    It’s actually because of you that I dared to do a smokey eye (and not looked like a raccoon lol). Especially a good bronzy smokey eye just always remindeds me of you! Xx

  • Sarah Kim says:

    Hi Teni!!
    Your videos are honestly everything I look for when I’m stuck on what makeup I want to do or what products I want to try and your voice is absolutely soothing. To be completely honest, I was terrified of doing my own makeup because I just felt like I had no clue of what I was doing and didn’t feel confident that I would do a decent job. So of course I go on YouTube and I stumbled upon your channel! I felt intimidated at first because you always looked so on point and gorgeous but your soothing voice and detailed steps really helped with my daily routine! Thanks to your beautiful and creative soul, I learned how to apply makeup and grow a strong love for cosmetics. You inspire me constantly every single video you create has me screaming. I wish I could have the time to meet you and just show you how grateful I am towards you. I used to have serious depression issues and became my own enemy by destroying my self esteem. Yet when I thought I had nothing left, you appeared into my life and spread some Teni light onto the darkest part of my soul. You are everything to me and personally I LOVE watching makeup collection videos because I’m reminded my passionate love for makeup thanks to you! So to watch your own collection got me writing down a list of what I need to get and to my surprise you’re reaching 1 million subscribers that gets to experience what I’m feeling. Thank you for this amazing opportunity and being the light I needed in my life. I love you!!!

    Keep doing you boo!
    HUGS AND KISSES,
    Sarah

    So I’m a 25 year old “ex tom boy”, also small town girl with little to no knowledge about makeup. I started watching Youtube beauty videos and realized there was a whole new world that i didn’t even know about. It fascinated me. I watched a lot of videos by different Youtube beauty Guru’s in a short span of time. But your’s always stood out to me. I felt an instant connection there. I felt like you were my best friend/sister trying to help me explore the makeup world. I watched your videos religiously …some more than 1 time. What set you apart from the other beauty guru’s was your passion for people. You genuinely wanted to help people out and i could sense it. Those traits brought me back to your channel more than anyone else’s.

    Today i own a small makeup bag with items you have suggested and loved. I love them as much as you do. I love playing with makeup now. Its almost like my getaway from the busy life i am leading. Thank You for being an inspiration and thank you for your virtual presence in my life. You’ve made my life a lot better. More power to you. <3

  • Chloe McGowan says:

    Yas!!! I have been a loyal subscriber to you for about three years now as I stumbled across your highlight and contour video. You made me laugh so much as you reminded me of myself and how ditsy I am, I love how you don’t brag about your makeup skills as you don’t need to cake it all on due to how amazing your skin is!!!! However as much as I love you I don’t think my bank does with all the products you recommend!! By far my favour it videos of yours is your vlogs as it is so nice to get to know you more !!! Thanks for being you and honestly cheering up my day with your true personality !! By the way since you mentioned the Nars Creamy Concealer I feel that I have bought over 15 tubes! So damn good! Xx

  • Faya says:

    Hi Teni,
    What i love about u and your channel is that it feels so natural watching your videos. You are such an down to earth person and that makes me want to watch your videos.
    My favorite videos that i watch often are the natural makeup video and the one video with the fall makeup, because i love some good dark lips! I have a lot of good memories just by watching your videos and i am still making good memories. I get inspired and excisted, because everything i see a video on youtube it is just that i want to do this to. Ok i will make it easier to understand, haha.
    I don’t want to be like o choose me because of this and that, but i feel like i have to tell this to make clearer. I have a hard time at school and i don’t really like to go school, but everytime i see a video it just rememberd me from when i was little and i would dress up and do my make up. Make up is just my life, i know what i want in life and what i want to do after school.
    I even applied to a beauty school and i got in! So yeah basically everytime i watch your videos it reminds me of how much i love make up and how beautiful and natural it can be. It inspires me as i said, but it makes me happy and feel good after watchig a video of you.
    Thankyou for that, thankyou for inspiring people and sharing your passion with us.

    Lots of love from the Netherlands.

  • Sheri Parsons says:

    Loved this video! Wonderful collection and those IKEA drawers are too cool! Love your style!!!

  • Stara says:

    Hi Teni,
    I first found a picture of you on Pinterest maybe around 1 year ago. It was a pic of your beautiful Gold mokey eye look, one of your very first videos, I believe. I automatically pinned it, wondering who was the talented and beautiful girl on the photo.
    A few weeks after that, I was randomly on youtube, and TA-DA here it was: the girl with the beautiful Gold makeup! I clicked on it and saw your beautiful face and heard your soothing voice, I felt like we were friends right off the bat! I love your consistency, talent, and weird pinky finger! I am so glad I subscribed to your channel right then and there. Love you!

  • Hiba Barakat says:

    Teni your channel was my first ever subscription to any channel on YouTube.. I was invited to a wedding and I wanted to do my own make up so my sister told me go check out YouTube you’re gonna find lots of tutorials there so that’s what I did and I wrote smoky eye make up and your video was the first video that I clicked on and that’s where my YouTube obsession started! I love your videos and you’re very beautiful inside out I wish you all the best xx

  • Carley says:

    Hey girl! Thank you for simply being you! I discovered your channel a while back & although I’ve never commented or we’ve never shared an interaction I’m damn sure we would be soul sisters!

    My heart broke with you when you spoke of the homeless animals on the Tarte trip & I hugged my puppies a little tighter that day!

    And the tip you gave us for the perfect (stepped) wing liner works a treat!

    You truly are a gem!

    Sending all my love from Australia!

  • Farina Purwono says:

    Teni,
    You are hands down my favourite beauty guru on YouTube. My favourite memory of you is simply just the first time I ever watched one of your videos. I always liked the idea of makeup but a year ago, I received my first ever high end product and from that moment on I was hooked. When I wanted to learn more about how to use certain products or learn certain techniques, I jumped on YouTube and found your ‘Winter Glow Makeup Tutorial’ from 2014 and I was absolutely taken away by everything about the video. I can’t explain it but it was basically a turning point for me, just watching you apply the makeup and just being able to see another person enjoy what they were doing and feel the passion they had for makeup. I’ve been with you ever since and the best thing about your channel is the way you translate in a video is so genuine and honest, like you are just talking one on one with a subscriber and making us all feel special!
    Thanks for the opportunity to let me share this with you and for the opportunity to enter the giveaway!
    Lots of love from Australia 🙂

  • Anthea says:

    Ahhhh Teni, this giveaway is amazing and so generous! Well where do I begin…? The whole YouTube makeup thing was so new to me and I can still remember the very first video I watched of yours – the gold smokey eye tutorial. I remember having to quickly get ready for a party watching you thinking, damn she makes the smokey eye so easy to do so thank you for that! Literally hit that subscribe button two seconds after the video ended. Still not as skilled at the eyeliner like you yet but slowly getting there! I remember whilst watching a tutorial thinking how do you not poke your eye out when you tightlining your waterline and sure enough you did – your facial expression was hilarious! (Apologies for laughing, I do the same thing all the goddamn time!!)
    You’ve been the sole person to make my makeup obsession grow, it’s now become a part of me, not just how I look but how I feel! Watching your videos literally makes my confidence grow – don’t ask me how, it just does! I have watched every single video of yours and I love the variety of work you do, and it is so clear to see the time and effort you put in which is a testament to the sort of person you are -one of the main reasons why you are my favourite you tuber. It is hard to pick my favourite video but it would have to be between the GORGEOUS bridal makeup tutorial and the baby shower get ready with me from late 2014. Both such elegant and classy looks!
    I hope you never stop youtubing as I don’t think you know how excited I get when you post a video!! Love you Teni and wish you all the best in life xxxxxxxx (apologies for the insanely long paragraph!! Got a bit carried away there!)

  • I watch your channel because you and I share a love/ hate relationship with winged eyeliner. I barely wear it and I remember you saying the same thing in a video (actually actually few) a few years ago. Right then I know ew your channel was a place to get eye looks that I wouldn’t have to try a wing with to recreate.
    Love your channel, blog and videos. You are always humble, personable and a pleasure to watch!

  • Saffron johnston says:

    I love your videos! Genuinely watch your videos 24/7 even when I’m revising! I love going down to the very first video you posted 4 years and see how much you have grown as a youtuber, even though the video is 4 years ago I still love to watch them as it’s pretty cool to grow and learn makeup with you throughout the years, and your videos have helped me learn about my skin/makeup and it makes me feel better inside & out and holy fudge it’s amazing to see how much you have grown in followers thought theese years and I hope there’s many more fabulous years to come! SLAY GIRL SLAY!
    Ps I love this font it’s legit goals!
    Thankyou❤️

  • Megan Wells says:

    I❤️you!! I love you and your channel and I feel like a proud mum who’s been following you from the startAmongst all your amazing videos, my favourite moment was actually when someone said I reminded them of you. I spent way too long practising one of your looks and way too much money purchasing the products and I didn’t think it was too successful but when I was out somebody approached me and said I reminded them of you. Never been so happy

  • Areeba Bilal says:

    hello Teni. i’ve been watching your channel since i-don’t-remember-when long 😉 you’re doubtlessly one of the most professional and amazing youtubers. i wish you all the happiness and success in the world. xo!

  • Catherine says:

    Hi teni xx
    Your YouTube channel was one of the first videos I ever watched, I was looking for a smokey brown eye tutorial to do (this was my ever first time doing my own eye makeup) and I saw your video I loved it and I was so determined to get the same look as you. However I looked like I had been punched in the face loll but thanks to you I have now improved my skills with makeup and know way more things. My favourite thing about you and your channel is how kind, nice of a person you are and I also love how natural and simple your make up is.
    I love you teni xxx

  • Meena says:

    Dear Teni,
    I stumbled upon your channel after your collab with Chriselle Lim. I am a really big fan of your makeup tutorials and style. I just started wearing makeup recently and I find your videos extremely innovative and interesting, I would love to meet you in person. I have olive skin and I’ve always felt that makeup made me looks worse. But after watching your channel and learning the right way of wearing makeup I feel so much more confident. I am also obsessed with your instagram. I’m excited to see your upcoming videos and hopefully you can make a lookbook so I can learn more from your style! Love you <3
    Cheers!

  • Jess Lam says:

    Hi Teni!

    I’ve watched you since you and Sona were still doing videos together and I think I remember how amazed I was when I first saw you applying eyeliner with only one eye shut. Serious talent haha!

    Love you and hope to see more vids 🙂

    Xx Jess

  • Cassandra Ngadan says:

    Hey Teni!

    Im Cassandra from Malaysia.
    I remember the first time i found your channel which is the first video that i saw is the 1920’s make up tutorial. I was so blown away with how beautiful the make up is and its truly the kind of 1920’s make up that i would wear to any holloween party or a fancy dinner. I personally think its the perfect one. To me i like a bit of make up that still look natural. From that day moment i directly subscribed to your channel instantly like for real! After that start watching some of your previous videos and the current one. Other than that, i also enjoy watching your natural glam make up with standout lashes as well. Its simple and definitely simplicity which i loveeee.
    I also enjoyed watching your travel diary videos especially the turks and caicos. Omg its like a story telling which you shared your moments with us. truly thankful for you showing us the beautiful scenery over there. the touchy part which makes me in tears is definitely the scene where they bring out the puppies for adoption. Im an animal lover as well. And i feel all the emotions that how i wish we can save all the homeless animals around the world. Even in my country seeing homeless animals always get me so emotional and i wish i can help them. The most i can do is normally go to pet shop i bought food can and feed them. Basically your videos are fun to watch as we get to see how is your personality is. Down to earth simple bubbly and definitely loving your aura! well i guess so at that’s all i have to say. I wish you all the best in picking the winners!

    Cheers!
    🙂

    Hi Teni!
    First i wanna say thank you for this giveaway, it is so generous of you to give back to your viewers, thats one of the things that make you special, you’ve always been down to earth and remain humble 🙂
    I wanted to tell you about my story, i’ve always been so passionate about makeup and beauty in general, but couldnt go to cosmetology school cause it can get a little expensive, i got married recently and we’re saving up to buy our very first house eekkk!!!! Anyways, my dream was to become a makeup artist, thats what makes me happy, but i always thought that it wasnt poossible because i didnt have a degree and never went to school for it, i thought to myself, who’s going to want an artist that didnt go to school, it wasnt until i saw your video snap chat q&a back in january when you started talking about anxiety and how to push forward and be strong and get through life that i realized how strong and talented i was, i thank you everyday for that video, it gave me strenght and hope that i could be anything i want in life, now a few months later i started my business with my husband’s help, i am a makeup artist based in Miami and couldnt be happier. Thank you for your inspirational words and kind heart. Keep doing what you do, you have no idea how manys lives you change everyday 🙂

      Hello Teni
      I’m not just writing for the prize, I have been saying I’m going to write to her for a long time. I use to watch so many vloggers and no one had the same skin compilation so it was no good infact I looked like a clown also I use to spend money on products that was no good for me. So when I found you I was so happy to the fact that I would watch your videos for hours and be late to my lecturers. Actually once in the library I gathered all the students around to watch your Greek goddess tutorial (one of my fav videos) they all took their phone to subscribe. What I learned from you also bought my confidence up, I feel much more feminine and so easy to create the glamorous looks for occasions. I have to say as an Interior Architecture and Design student you have done amazing with your mama’s house I can’t wait for you to have your own place.
      On my first day of university I had everyone asking where my highlighter was from, thanks to your ‘London shopping’ video. Now I follow you on all social media platforms (snapchat is my fav)
      Can’t wait for you to a have London meet up!
      Sorry for any punctuation mistakes I’am dyslexic:(
      May God bless you with everything that’s amazing

    Hey Teni!! I know this comment may not compare to the others, and that’s okay. I just wanted to thank you for making me (and clearly many, many others) incredibly happy and fortunate to have an icon such as you to inspire us, whether it be through your impeccable style and your beauty of your peaceful misdemeanor. I’ve been watching you on YouTube for about 3 years (and I’ve had you an snapchat for about a year and a half) but I’m not sure with video was the first, because I went back and watched the ones from before then too. You want to know my favorite? Lmao that’s going to take a while, but my top favorites have to be your Age of Adaline inspired 1920s makeup tutorial, your most recent gray smokey eye, and the look you did using all Charlotte Tillbury eyeshadows a little while back. If you’ve made it to the end of this comment, thank you, but it’s not the end. You helped me feel so much more beautiful. Every post, every video, you made me feel more comfortable in my middle eastern skin and I knew that I could be beautiful too, just like you. And no words that I write could ever express enough gratitude, but you know I tried. Love you so very much Teni, may each of your days be brighter than the last ❤️

Thank you so much for creating great videos anf content and sharing it with all of us

  • Hello gorgeous,

    I just find you and your work, so well done, last week.
    REALLY, you are in the right direction. You have the talent, passion and you’re so calm and empathic.
    Love it, I love you! I’m Portuguese. Wish you a good day!

  • Jessica Padron says:

    Hey Teni! Wow where can I start….. You have an amazing soul and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I remember the very first time I came upon your channel. I was desperate to find an easy makeup look for my cousins quinceañera. And that’s when I came upon your smokey eye tutorial. I remember staying up all night watching all your videos. (Which at the time weren’t very much) I would always get excited when I would see your name pop up in my subscription. Then you got super busy and hardly posted. I really hoped you hadn’t stopped making YouTube videos. Cause come on your amazing. Then you posted a video saying you were focusing on YouTube. (Literally thanked my lucky stars!) and the rest is history. I’ve seen how much you’ve grown in your career and, I won’t stop rooting for ya! I can’t begin to imagine how hard it is to find the time to do what you do. But I appreciate it so much. Thankyou Teni for everything. Keep your head high and I wish you the best. ❤️

  • Indiana N. Johannsdottir says:

    Hi Teni!

    I am writing this to you all the way from Iceland.

    My first memory of your channel is from January 2013. I had just finished the entry exam in Law school here in Iceland and I think I spent a whole month going through your channel and you actually taught me almost everything I know about make up today. So I would say you helped me clear my head a little after the exam in December.

    I am a lot like you, I don’t actually wear make up that often but when I do I love to go to your channel and get inspired.

    xoxo

  • Filiz says:

    Hi Teni! My favorite video of yours is the tutorial with the dose of colors lip in berry. After your tutorials, my favorite videos of yours are the organizing/home decor stuff. You are a source of inspiration, positivity and creativity. And I will forever continue to follow you and your journey.

  • Andrea Santamaría says:

    Hi Teni!!! I’m Andrea from Spain 🙂 I love you!!! I love all your videos and your personality…you always inspire me and I always have a good time in your channel. I still remember the first time you “liked” one of my comments, I went crazy haha.
    But if I have to thank you for something it would be because I find my new group of friends thanks to one of your videos!! I recreated your Cleopatra makeup look for my Halloween university party last year in Madrid. I was dancing with other friends when 3 girls came and complimented my costume and makeup, we started talking and had so much fun that night. We exchanged numbers and now are best friends!!!
    Un beso muy fuerte <3

  • Lucija says:

    Hi Teni!
    I remember when I first found out about you. It was three years ago, and I Had just made instagram profile and my cousin send me a screenshot of vegas nay post about your make up look. We talked about how beautiful you are and your make up look, but we couldnt figure out your name. Because I was new to instagram I didn’t know how to see tag on the photo, and first we thought your name was vegas nay haha. But after I searcher, I found this blog that lead me to your YouTube Channel. I immediately ran to my sister to show her your channel and we were stunned by how beautiful you are. Ever since then I am your big fan.
    Even though you are one of the prettiest girls i have ever seen, and you have some bomb makeup skills, there is one other thing That’s making you number one for me next to other girls on Social medija platforms. I have been always struggling with my confidence, and with the Way I look, the Way I act. I love my simple, quiet life where I enjoy being in my sweatpants, spending my free time with my boyfriend and our dogs walking in Nature.
    But seeing Social media and girls being all dresses up, usually with their breasts and ass flashing in photos, going to partys and all.. It made me feel less confident because I do not look like that, I can’t act that Way because That’s not priority in my life. I’m working on my masters degree and figuring my life, but sometimes it feels like it is not worth any attention, but pretty girls with hafnaked pictureas are.
    That’s the thing that kept me with you for so long. You are the women who got her shit together. You are one of the most beautiful girls I have seen, but you dont need to flash anithying to make a carrier. I love you’re such a passionate animal Lover, and you fight for what you want. I just want you to know how wounderfull person you are, and that there is a girl on the other continent amdireing you, your hustle, your lifestyle. You are the best rolemodel for girls and women all over the world! And whenever you have a bad day, I want you to remember that!
    Keep slaying girl, love you.

  • MIRELA LUGOJANU says:

    Hey girl! Well I love your channel and posts! It’s kind of a reality check of success, like I need to get up and do something with my life too! I’ve been stuck at a boring job for some time but I start a new job in April and I feel like I can make a change there and it’s just given me new life and I haven’t even started! I’m already thinking of the outfits I can wear and the only thing missing is makeup. I have my makeup bag ready but I need my make up, I have some but it’s the same old stuff and I’m looking to start fresh at this new job! I remember making my mom go to the drugstores at least ones a week for makeup I had seen on the commercials. I’m a simple girl that just wants a new look and you can help me achieve that with this amazing giveaway. 🙂 love ya!

  • Rhea Guliani says:

    Hey, Teni! Okay, I’m going to keep it short and simple for you to read. Your channel is special to me because you are the first make up blogger I started following. On the day of my high school graduation ceremony in India, I was really hassled about how to do my make up and look the way I wanted to. I saw your gold and black eyeshadow tutorial, followed the basic, easy techniques that I could. Now I’m in the last year of college and I’ve been following your channel like a religion. Beauty has always been my passion but your channel just gave me the dimension I needed to work towards this passion. I am now interning under the beauty editor of a leading magazine in India. And a part of this success goes to YouTube and your channel.
    MissMaven.com gave me the zeal to research more about beauty, follow more channels, write and blog about it too. (I’ll be lying if I say that I only follow you now but it was because of you that I wanted to enter this industry)
    I’ve never met you in person but I’d love to (whenever I come to LA)You’ve replied to my comments 2-3 times on Instagram and I kept screenshots of it because it made my day. I’d also love to meet bambi, kiko and papi, I guess? )
    Also, something funny I love about your channel is my you’ve itches around your face and the struggles you’ve with a liquid liner. It’s just so relatable! I sometimes rewind the video to see those quirky things if I miss them (don’t judge :P)
    I’ve started my own make up Instagram page about make up and beauty now. Hoping to get more inspiration with your videos.
    Loads of love and blessing

  • Kaley Rojik says:

    Hello 🙂

    I originally started following you because I thought you looked so much like Kim Kardashian. I immediately fell in love with your videos. I love how you do full glam videos but also simple ones that I ( as a very busy mom with two young kids) can actually do and do quickly!!
    You have such a fun and sweet personality! So fun to watch! I love how o can watch your videos with my kids because you are very professional and classy. My favourite you tuber of all time! Thank you for the chance to win some amazing make up that I would never buy for myself 🙂
    Love you,
    Kaley from Canada

  • Stavriani Koutava says:

    Hi Teni!
    I am Stavriani and I am from Greece.Well I think that the most important thing that I’ve learnt from you is that makeup is there to enhance our natural beauty and features and also that less is more in makeup and fashion!So I’d like to thank you for that!
    Lots of love from Athens,
    Stavriani❤️

  • Rehan says:

  • Magdalini Kuriakidou says:

    Hey Teni!!!!

    I am so excited to be writting this comment since i never comment on videos or stuff like that.
    However, i’ve been watching you for a very long time and really enjoying your videos.
    Let me introduce myself.
    My name is Magdalini and i am a computer science student from Greece, age 21, living in Athens.
    I don’t have a special moment that we have shared but i would like to tell you why i like you since i found the opportunity no matter what. You always emit such a positive and rexaling vibe on your videos that instantly makes me feel reaaaaally good about everything, i dont know how to explain it.
    At the same time, even though you are a well established youtuber you never project something superficial or arogant.You always smile and that makes a big difference when you are a viewer and maybe had a bad day or you just need a psychological boost. Anyway, it’s time for me to stop all that rumbling!
    Summing, my message to you is to keep up the good job , never stop beeing who you are cause that’s what we love to you and always smile.

    Many kisses from Greece,
    Magdalini

  • Rina says:

    Hi Teni
    I started watching your videos about 3 weeks ago and I HAVE WATCHED EVERY SINGLE ONE -_- i think that says a lot about how great your videos are and of course how gorgeous you are! and maaaaybe how much i don’t want to be studying right now hehe

    Keep it up and i hope i win *fingers and toes crossed 🙂

  • Ravina Khan says:

    Hi Teni!
    I’m Ravina from Switzerland and I’m 19 years old.
    It’s been like 3 years I’m following you on youtube, I did not miss any of your videos! I love them so much! I adore your personality and who you are. I’ve learned a lot through your videos and your blog. I really do appreciate your tutorials because they are not complicated, I like to try your tutorial on my face however, sometimes I do not have all the makeup you use…
    You really inspire me and make me embrace myself!
    Hope to win this giveaway, finger crossed.
    Have good day xxx

  • Jaclyn says:

    Hi Teni!
    I am so excited for this giveaway – you are the very first youtuber I subscribed to 3 years ago – since then, you have really drawn out the makeup lover in me and taught me that being obsessed with products does not make me superficial. I even work in the cosmetics industry now! Thanks to you, I have become the girl that does all of her friends’ makeup on a Friday night out and have become motivated and inspired in my product development career to create the best, most innovative makeup out there. Your videos are so inspiring and have a way of putting a huge smile on my face when I’m feeling down. Winning this giveaway would mean so much to me!

    Xx,
    Jaclyn

  • Fatou says:

    Hi Teni! ❤️ I remember when you first bought your Nude Christian Louboutin pumps (which are gorgeous btw), but what makes me laugh is that every time you wear them on Snapchat, you talk about how uncomfortable they are hahaha! The struggle is so real because they look so good! Lol

    I do want to add one of the things I’ve noticed about your channel, in the beginning you were way more reserved (which is understandable), but now you are so open with us! I most definitely have taken notice so thank you!

    Also can I just say how annoying it is when people hear Armenian and immediately compare you to the Kardashians?! Lol love you girl

  • Ravina Khan says:

    Hello Teni!
    I’m Ravina from Switzerland.
    It’s been 3 years that I’ve been following you on youtube. I’ve found you randomly but I’m so happy to have find you! Once you replied to one of my question on one of your video and I was like woooow Teni answered meeee!!!
    I adore your personnality and for who you are, you are an amazing, beautiful, funny and sweet person!
    I really enjoy your videos, you do sophisticated videos but also simple videos too. I like to try the things I learn through your videos, however sometimes I do not have all the makeup you use on your tutorial. This is why I’d reallly like to win this give away! 🙂
    I shared your chanel with some of my best friends, they all find you beautiful and amazing!
    Love you xx
    Finger crossed 😉

  • Naomi says:

    Hey Teni ❤️ I am not sure how I came across your channel it was a while back, I believe I was searching for a look. But funny thing is the main reason why I subscribed and watched all of your previous videos was because of your eyes. I am still so impressed on how you put your eyeshadow or even eyeliner! You are able to completely close one eye without squinting lol you are the only person I have seen that is able to do that. So here you have me every time I do my makeup I try to do it but I have small eyes so it doesn’t work I am always squinting. So of course I start telling all my friends check out her videos and look how she’s does her eyeshadow it’s so cool!! Anyway you are an amazing person and I love watching your videos. & like you said in this video we have grown together. When I started watching makeup videos I only used to wear mascara and eyeliner now I wear it all from highlight to even false lashes. Thank you for this great give away. I wish you nothing but success!! Lots of love

  • Nadia says:

    Hey Teni!
    I’ve been watching you for a while and I just want to commemorate you for keeping your skin so nice and smooth because no matter if I wear a little or a lot of makeup, I always break out (doesn’t mean I’m going to stop lol). I think my favorite video of yours is the Egyptian Halloween look you did. You really are a great artist and I can’t wait to see your channel grow and reach the 1 million milestone you deserve! ❤️

  • Summer says:

    The first video of yours I ever saw was your gold smokey eye tutorial from like 3 years ago!

  • Kiara Somaratne says:

    Hello you gorgeous gal,

    I remember finding you on Youtube and watching your videos when you had about 30,000 subscribers and thinking to myself ‘I want you be just like her’.
    It sounds silly but you are literally the reason I have a passion for make up. You taught me to love make up for the right reasons, not just so I could cover my imperfections. You made me feel confident in my own skin and I hadn’t even met you!
    You have had such a huge impact on the way I see myself and the world, my outlook on life is a lot more positive thanks to you.

    Also, I’m a hugeeeee dog lover and it is extremely comforting to know that even people like you with busy scheduals would care for dogs the way do, honestly melts my heart! When I get my down place it will 100% be full of dogs!

    Even if I don’t win this giveaway I just hope this made you smile!

    – Kiara xx

  • Daria says:

    I reeaally love your makeup, the fact that is so natural, even when you haave a smokey is not that much makeup on your face. you enhance your natural beauty and i think this is the message every girl should understant. you don’t have to wear a tone of makeup to be gorgeous. you thought me that! thank you so much! i also want to steal all your clothes, i won’t, but i still want to.
    So you can understat how your tutorials became an addiction to be, my boyfriend is going crazy, he always tells me “her again? i guess you love her more than me” <3

  • Marina Zlatanovic says:

    Hey Teni!
    I started watching your videos only a few months ago, and I fell in love with everything on your channel. I love that your videos are actual tutorials, that are rare to find nowadays. One of my favorite videos of yours is the “Winged eyeliner for deep set eyes” that really helped me do the perfect eyeliner for myself. You called your wing a “Batman swoop”, and ever since then I am not able to do my eyeliner without remembering that. I am not joking, EVERY SINGLE TIME, it is stuck in my head. Anyway, hope you can understand what I wrote, English is not my first language. Sending you lots of love from Serbia!

  • Tugba says:

    Dear Teni,

    I am not a type person that comments much, but I really wanted to enter the giveaway not only to win, but to write you because im sure you are going to read it. Excuse my english btw..

Anyway i am going to keep it short because you have to read alot girl… I am watching you sinds 2012, but you really got me with your recent Q&A video! That was so intimate! You are really a person that deserves all the succes! I do not know you in person, but i do know you enough to say that you are really i kind person, and you are so open and sweet towards your subscribers! Not saying all of this because i wanna win or something! I think you really should know what your subscribers think about you! Ofcourse do i love your videos too, i just think that your taste of makeup is exactly the same as mine. That really keeps me watching you! And ofcourse do i love you and your videos.

  • Josephine Frausing says:

    First of all, you have taught me how to do my brows, from the “all about eyebrows” video. You have taught me how to put on lashes, and the thing above all, you have showed me Nars velvet matte skin tint love you!

  • Lisa Armond says:

    Your skills and talent are so honestly conveyed and helpful. I clicked on you a couple of years ago because of your last name. It made me smile and remember the smile I was held in by a Mrs. Alvasian, a nurse friend of my Aunts. I felt the culture of kindness she was raised in by the way I felt just standing and hearing her and my Aunt discuss people they knew and their children. I felt happy for her children and family to have her, as I lost my mother young. I can’t imagine anyone not feeling beautiful when touched by her gaze.

  • Julie says:

    I started watching you because you’re one of the few gurus on youtube with the same skintone as me! There is seriously a lack of options on olive skin but i can count on you to give me ideas for great looks. I stuck around because you’re incredibly honest in your reviews so I know your word can be trusted.

    Early congrats on your 1M subs!

  • Sonya says:

    Armenian beauty~

    well to be honest, i started watching your videos because i saw your last name. i knew you were armenian. i’m also armenian and you make me proud of that. i was like hey have you watched teni? no? well you need to see how pretty armenian girls are hahaha! i live in belgium and there aren’t as many armenians here so yeah i’m proud. i loved
    your halloween cleopatra make up. i’ve tried it but my mom was scared of my look she said: if i saw you in the dark i would shit in my pants and just slap you lol well thanks. ok, well i understand her,i really just looked like a blue potato. I think that no one can just copie a look. That’s why i think that make up is unique. I’m 18 years old and in love with make up. It’s sad that make up can be so expensive like i don’t feel like i get a chance to be as pretty as the others.

    I’m very happy that you stand up for something that you want. I will always watch your videos because you’re perfection.
    love

    Sonya

  • Patricia says:

    OH TENI! Where do I even begin!

    From the day the 18yo me (who had just discovered the magic of make up) stumbled upon your channel, I was obsessed. I remember watching your Winter Glow Make Up tutorial and setting up my laptop in front of my dresser so that I could get ready while you instructed me blend, set and conceal! I remember grinning (weirdly) about my results and reminiscing about the precious days on high school when my foundation was clearly two shades lighter, my “tight” liner was not that tight and not owning an eyelash curler… Thank God I found you!

    You are my go to for an everyday make up look or a good night out simply because you have the most natural technique and you also give room for your audience to re-create the look with their own unique style. You empower others simply by giving them the freedom to make the “look” their look too! Now as a 22yo, I can only thank you for fueling my passion for make up artistry!

    So thanks Teni! You’re a bigger inspiration in my life than you know
    Keep doing you boo boo 😉

  • KamilleC says:

    I just got married Feb 26, 2016. You posted a wedding video where you attended a wedding of a good friend of yours and you did your own make up. That was my inspiration for when I did my make up on my wedding day. You’re such a classic beauty and you have the look I aspire to – simple and classy.

  • Lindsey Smith says:

    Dear Teni,
    Finding your channel was one of the best happy accidents that ever happened to me. I’ve always had a problem feeling pretty. Ever since I was a little girl and saw my mom putting makeup on, I thought the only way to feel better about myself was to change. I have very bad eczema that flares up and hurts and is not so nice to look at. When I stumbled across one of your videos, something drew me to you. You have this gentleness to you. You made me laugh and for a second there I forgot how unhappy I was. Over the course of a few months I continued to watch your videos, and though I found other people I liked to watch, I always came back to you. You are kindhearted, sweet, and talented. Even if I don’t win this giveaway I want you to know that you have positively impacted my life. By learning to enhance my features from you, I’m learning to appreciate myself better. Thank you for all that you share with us. <3
    Love Lindsey

  • Youngwoon Kim says:

    I dont know where to begin. First time I saw your video in Youtube was not long ago. I saw you at the Newyork Fashion week video and thought wow she is pretty and knows how to put make-up on. Ever since I watched the NYFW video, I started to watch your previous videos and got many ideas, like how to dress up and do your make-ups on different occasion. So lately I watch almost 2 to 3 videos a day when I get ready, doing house chores and even while I am taking a bath. I find your video very informative and soothing. Before I watched your video I didn’t really enjoy using many shadows. I am an Asian woman living in Korea, here we tend to use less shadows. Of course it depends on the shape of eyes but I am having a lot of fun using different colors instead of always going for simple and plain looks. It’s all because of you. I am not very good at English so I can’t describe how I feel exactly. But I just want you to know I will keep watch your videos happily. Go-ma-wou-yo(it means thank you in Korean)

  • Andjela says:

    Hi teni,you are my inpiration for doing makeup ,everything is so clasic and simple but so pretty.You are so beautiful,and i love your voice.love you teni

  • Liana says:

    take your coffee and read this-

    So my name is Liana and i live in Belgium. I have a sister who looooves make up. To be honest i’m entering this give away for her. My sister means a lot to me. She can make others pretty but as she looks in the mirror she is like: liana do you think i’m pretty or good
    enough? really i feel so bad when she asks something like that. If she has money she spend it to buy food or presents for the family. We have a big family and she puts the others on the first place. I always see her watching your videos in the middle of the night. That’s why i began watching your videos and i heard that you had a give away. I hope that i can give my sister just the best and make her happy. I don’t maybe know you that well but i can see that you mean a lot to my sister.

  • Jen says:

    Love your videos and you are gorgeous! keep up the good work!

  • Katherine Garrido says:

    Oh Teniiiiii how do I love theeeee let me count the ways lol. I have been following you for as long as I can remember! I think the very first video I ever watched was the one with the big hair! How to big sexy hair! That was the one. Ever since then Ive been hooked on your videos. I am lucky enough to have your skin tone and hair color so I have basically bought every product you have ever used! From foundation to skin care, I have followed you on your Journey here on youtube. Aside from thanking you for all your amazing videos, and of course for being so generous with your giveaways, I wanna thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing what you do in regards to Rescue pups! I have worked for the ASPCA since 2011! I worked with the Humane Law Enforcement agents here for a few years (animal cops) and then I worked with the Adoption center doing adoptions contracts at the 92nd street Manhattan shelter. I even ended up adopted a little Chihuahua mix little lady who is gonna be 5 now and was a NYPD cruelty case. Ramina is her name! It warms my heart to here you speak about your rescues, and to simply know that you have fostered so many! You are an amazing human being for that… simply that. Thank you Teni, and thank your momma for me because she really has such a beautiful daughter, both inside and out!

  • MARIA says:

    I love the way you talk about anything, how authentic you are, it is pretty much obvious to everyone that you are a kind, honest and extremely grounded person. I’ve wached your videos for the past 2 years and you haven’t changed at all!Your videos make me feel so relaxed, as i am talking with my best friend about make up.Just continue like this, don’t change anything:)

  • margareth says:

    Hi Teni well , i just want to say I love everything about your videos , I really enjoy watching them and let me tell you why; many people on the social media for instance YouTube are so different than you, they are not as friendly as you are becase let me aslo tell you when I watch your videos i feel like I am on one to one conversation with you and I like that ! you are humble and that’s whats great about you . Your personality shines through all the YouTube so thank you for that ! thank you for your time and effort, thank you for the energy you put on everything you do for is your followers! Love you

    XO Margareth

  • Carla Rogers says:

  • Rosalía says:

    As far as I can remember, you didn’t have a youtube channel the first time I saw that beautiful brown smokey eyes on this blog, but the thing that comes to my mind when I see you is always the same one. I am from Spain and one day I was watching tv with my mother after lunch. I didn’t expect to see you on the screen! You played the role of the sweet mate of the husband who made the psyco wife jealous and I thought you were perfect for that role. My mother hasn’t understood why I was that excited yet, but I fell like I was watching my own friend. Good luck everyone! Teni must be so happy with all of the entries.

  • RIOS PALMA Vanessa says:

    Hello Teni , i am a french girl and i love your channel and your blog . I don’t speak and write English like other people . I don’t always understand what you say because i never wanted to learn English in school. And i regret very much. This is why i follow you . When you speak , you speak with a fairly English to understand . So many youtubers speak so quickly and it is very hard for me . It’s more easier to read than listen . And so ,in your channel , i love so much all your makeup. It sound so easy to reproduce but it does not always the same result.
    I never comment and still less in English blog . So thank you so much for being here and on YouTube .

  • MARGARITA CASANOVA says:

    Hi Teni!!
    I just wanted to thank you. Recently I committed it to do one of my best friends make up for her wedding. I was very worried about what I was going to do because I’m not a makeup artist (only a makeup addict), and decided to recreate one of your bridal makeup tutorials, the one where you use the LORAC pro palette, and turned out to be a total hit. Everyone was happy (including me), and of course the bride received many compliments. So thank you for saving my butt on this one. XOXO

  • Kenia Alonzo says:

    Teni, I just really enjoy the spirit of your vids, and it is refreshing to see a real woman that works hard with a good head on her shoulders. Your calm, light hearted spirit really makes my day among all the craziness of life. Have a wonderful day!

  • Mais Khourdaji says:

    There is something very fulfilling and rewarding watching someone with a Middle East ethnicity smile at me everyday, be it YouTube, or snap chat, through your blog…I remember when you snapped my tweet to you when you snapped about the Armenian women at Walgreens staring you down. That was memorable to me, 1) because I could SO relate, and 2) because you appreciated that I could relate. To be so successful, and yet so down to earth, it’s just inspiring! You’re a gem, and I’m a fan

  • Mia caso says:

    You have been hands down my FAVORITE. Beauty blogger for years! Every single makeup tutorial you have done is perfection and I get so excited to recreate them. Thank you for spending your time to share your talent with us. Very generous of you to do this giveaway!

  • Melissa says:

    Hey Teni, your amazing! My favorite memory of you, was when you uploaded the video where you talked about skin problems. That video helped me so much, that i remember I went to Sephora with my list, and bought all the products you recommended, and they sure did work. I’ve had been so insecure about myself, but in that video you talked about skin problems, that a lot of youtubers never talk about, and you helped me. I feel so comfortable in my own skin, after watching all your beauty tips, and tutorials that you share with the world. You deserve the best in life!

  • Maureen Kao says:

    Teni! What a great giveaway! Thank you for your amazing tutorials. I was able to do my sister’s wedding day makeup thanks to one of your bridal makeup tutorials. My sister looked so beautiful on her wedding day.

  • Kelly says:

    Hi Teni
    I had never been into makeup always been a bit of a tomboy, it was just before Christmas & I was looking for a smoky eye look for my works Christmas party, I came across your brown smoky eye tutorial…..well ever since I have been hooked, I am now totally obsessed with makeup, that one video changed my whole attitude towards makeup, I even purchased every single product (apart from the lippie) you used lol. I feel so much better about myself and more confident I know makeup isn’t everything but if it makes you feel better then I see no harm. I am also now really into skincare as I want my skin to be good so my makeup looks better. So you really have changed my whole beauty world, I know really take care of my skin & love wearing makeup and trying new looks, never thought I would wear lipstick but now i’m even trying darker shades & getting braver. I even took a photo from your smoky eye video & took it round loads of departments stores & Mac telling them I needed that lipstick the lorac visionary, i’m from the UK and at the time the set just wasn’t worth it as I didn’t think I would wear any other shade. I never got a match for the lorac visionary :o( . I think your videos are amazing and love your snaps I have dogs and got some bad news today so I am going to take my mind off it and go & watch some of your videos. Please do more tutorials and an updated skincare routine x x x You really do inspire me not just in makeup but to love life and always try to be a better person x x x

  • Jordy says:

    PARDON ME but I totally DIG your channel. You’re not some MEGALOMANIAC and you keep yourself down to earth. I love how original your looks can be and you do a great job of teaching those of us who are still learning the tricks. They’re all STELLAR! And I WISH YOU WERE HERE to do my makeup everyday. It’s so NICE TO KNOW YOU, even if it’s just through your videos. You DRIVE us all to be creative and be ourselves. WARNING: I posted this on your other platforms as well, I wasn’t sure if that counted towards more entries.

  • Amanda says:

    I love your videos and posts and I’d love to win (as would anyone). I love to experiment with makeup and recreate some of your tutorials. But I don’t have big enough balls to post them. I’m nowhere near as cute as you.

  • Melissa Fleming says:

    Hey Teni! My favorite video of yours is your Arabic makeup look. You were one of the first people I started watching regularly in YouTube. I’m 36 and I had never got into wearing makeup until the past couple years. It was always something I liked but I just had no clue about. I had no idea eyeshadow primer existed until I started watching YouTube videos lol. It opened up a whole new world for me and now I’m makeup obsessed! I love wearing makeup because it makes me feel good about myself and makes me feel pretty. You were and are an inspiration to me. Your Arabic inspired looks was one of the first more bold looks I tried and I loved it. You taught me incorporating color didn’t have to be scary. Thank you!

  • Rachel F. says:

    Hi Teni. I have been watching videos since you started YouTube. Your videos are my fav!!!! This is a fantastic giveaway. Thanks so much!!! Rachel

  • Heidi Sears says:

    50 Years old – What am I thinking??? Yes that is what my husband said to me. ha Well yes I am 50 but that doesn’t mean I am dead. I have always wanted to have a room just for me that I could have my make-up and hair products but never had the space. Well my daughter is getting married in November and I am turning her room into a guest room and beauty room. I recently came across your youtube videos and I was floored. You are so genuine and honest on everything. I fell in love with all your ideas which actually got me started in thinking I could do this room for me. So what if I am 50, I can show others that you can still be 50 and feel beautiful. I hope one day I can meet you in person. Your snapchats are so funny and I love it when you are yourself with no make-up on and just talking to everyone. I hope that I can win something from you so I can display it in my new room. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and love to everyone.

  • Laura says:

    I love your Chanel cause you don’t act like high class like many other youtubers, you act so normal and just try to help us do our make up better and make us feel self confident.
    Thank you for that

  • Hi Teni!
    First of all you are gorgeous! I have always been interested in make up, but it wasn’t until I came across your YouTube channel that I started to love and have fun with make up. I always have a hard time knowing what brands are good or how to apply the make up. In the past I always used the same make up and was afraid to try anything else. You have taught me so much and I want to thank you for that. I feel confident when I put on make and feel beautiful. I always look forward to your videos. They make my day. I get really excited to see what new make up to try. It’s wonderful to see how much you have grown. I’m sorry to say that I haven’t been with your from the start but I’m so glad I could be a part of your growing success! Thank you again! 🙂

    Hey Teni! It’ been so long since I visited your blog I forgot how amazing it is! Definitely going to come back more often. You are probably one of the best Youtubers out there! Your post are consistent and ALWAYS such great quality. I want to thank you for continuing to post because I love watching your videos. I also follow you on snapchat and you are so funny! It’s sort of a different side we don’t get to see on Youtube. Anyways, love you and thank you!

  • Rita Sousa says:

    Hi Teni!
    Ever since I started watching your videos I got obsessed with you. I find you a really nice girl and I’m sure that if we knew each other personally we would be great friends.
    I hope you have a great day and I wish the best.
    Love from Portugal

  • Albatoul says:

    You are such a gorgeous person and what I love the most is my skin tone is almost identical to yours, so whenever you recommend a product or use one I don’t have to think twice whether it will look good on me or not :p 🙂

    You are an amazing person and you are definitely my favorite beauty blogger. Love you :*

  • SA says:

    Hey Teni! Thank you so much for letting us get to know you through your blog and YouTube channel — it is honestly a privilege. Your videos are always so uplifting and informative. (I also especially appreciate you representing your Armenian heritage — it’s great to know that there is someone with my skin tone in the industry!) I know you’ll continue to rise and thrive and spread light in all that you do so this is really just a big THANK YOU for taking us on this journey with you. #TeamTeni for life!

  • Jessica Marquez says:

    Teni, what drew me to your videos was your skin tone. There are not many olive skinned beauties on you tube. It is hard to relate when others don’t understand the olive under tone, bronzer looking orange or the difficulty of finding the perfect crease shade. What kept me coming back is your down to earth personality and the amazing content of your channel. Thank you for what you do and congratulations on all of your succeas.

  • Daphne Harris says:

  • Keila says:

    Love your channel! Your channel has become a nice escape from hectic mommy life. I enjoy your travel vlogs!

  • Monika says:

    Hi Teni!

    The first time I came across your youtube channel was super special. At the time I was engaged and preparing for my wedding way. As our budget was pretty much all gone, I had to learn how to do my own bridal makeup! I was super stressed but I figured out youtube was the best way to find something. I wasn’t wrong! After a couple of clicks I came across your Bridal Makeup Tutorial and I knew this was the one I wanted to create for my special day. Thank you for all your tips there! Without you my makeup would not be the same. You have influenced my day so much and you probably had no idea 😉 I loved my makeup on my wedding day and couldn’t believe that I did it all by myself thanks to your help! Since then, my love for makeup has grown and I am obsessed with trying different products! You were the one who made me believe I could actually do great makeup. So thanks! Also.., you look like Jasmine from Disney and that was my favourite Disney cartoon so no wonder I like your videos 🙂

  • Victoria says:

    Hi Teni,
    I have been watching you videos for quite some time now, and I have to say that your “How I got clear skin” video has changed my life. I was struggling with the exact same problem as you and NO ONE has given me better tips than you. I can’t even explain how happy I was when finally, after months I felt confident again.
    I know that it is not a big deal, but for me, it has made a huge difference in my everyday life.
    Thank you so much and wish you the best! xoxo 🙂
    Ps.: I really love that you are doing natural looking looks and not like you have plunged in fundation

  • Myla says:

    Hi Teni! When you mentioned favorite memory, I instantly flashed to a few years ago when I got the flu in the springtime. Not the best. And totally miserable, However, while I was stuck on the couch for a week being feverish mess I stumbled on YouTube and searched “makeup tutorial” to try and pass the time while I healed. I’m pretty sure I ended up watching every one of your videos (and Wayne Goss), and finally actually got some insight into the how-to’s of application and technique…in a way that seemed approachable and appropriate for my lifestyle. I really appreciate how your tutorials/techniques look beautiful, but aren’t so heavy handed. I love makeup, don’t misunderstand, but wearing out a really heavy foundation with contour and a smokey eyes/false lashes and bold lips is just not me. I think the summer bronze/glow video is one of my all time favorites…to watch and to wear. All the best!

  • Sonal says:

    The first ever I ever watched of yours was a what’s in my bag video. After that video I binge watched your make up tutorials and fell in love with your videos. The natural makeup looks are my favorite and I love how well spoken you are. Congrats on all your success! Almost at One million!

  • RUPAM SHAH says:

    When I first saw your video, I thought ‘oh! sure you can look good with any makeup because you are already pretty’. I did not watch your videos until recently because i wanted to see a smoky copper eye makeup tutorial and learnt that you are not a trained makeup artist(the fact that you got invited to oscars after party was a no small deal) , I was not only shocked but inspired too as I felt that I too can learn makeup. Another thing about you that I have observed is that you know your face pretty well and play by your strengths and i totally love how you incorporate both drugstore and high end makeup. And last but not the least after i watched a few more videos i have started feeling that I look a lot like you (though not as pretty) and thats when i subscribed to your channel.

  • Maria Rivera says:

    I love how down to earth you are and that the content you put out is not only for people with skills in makeup but also for beginners. There is no discrimination and the looks apply to everyone from fair to dark continue doing what you do, life is going to compensate you in ways you can’t imagine Thanks for being generous with your followers.

  • Hailee W says:

    Hi Teni! I love watching your makeup videos for the great artistry, but also because you seem to have such an amazing personality. You are one of the only beauty gurus that I can relate to and you seem to have a heart of gold. I always admire people that don’t let the world make them hard or negative. I hope you do a meet up in Texas in the future!

  • Betina Berthelsen says:

    Hello Teni. I have watched your videos since the beginning, where you talked about your hair and makeup, and i just thought you had such a great personalite and i have then learn so much. I am a girl from Greenland, Nuuk (riiight next to the arctic circle) where the makeup selection is on the minimum and expensive side. But you always inspire me with your makeup and i like to try them on myself, so thank you for posting them and for being yourself on camera and making me smile.

  • Shazia says:

    You are beautiful inside out. Thanks to you I got inspired to start my own youtube channel and am doing pretty good 🙂
    Thanks a bunch for this opportunity. You ROCK!!!

  • Alexandra says:

    Teni! One thing I always think about (and I think this was from snapchat) was when you snapped going to a Bible study. This was a while back now but for some reason that has always stuck with me. These past couple of years I’ve been struggling with my faith (still am) and just seeing that you went to one made me realize how important it is to share and spend time with others in God’s word. I’ve opened up more and have attended Bible studies after seeing that snap. I don’t know what it was, just really helped seeing someone I look up to and admire sharing a moment like that on snapchat. Thank you for being such a constant inspiration whether in make up, faith or fashion! Have a great day:)!!

  • Shanza says:

    Teni I I want to tell you that I LOVE YOU!! When I watched you for the first time I genuinely felt that you were honest and a beautiful person on the inside, it just felt like it! I LOVE ALL your videos but most of all YOU. I feel girls these days wear makeup almost like a mask, one shouldn’t wear make up to impress someone but purely because they love it. ” A smile is the best make up any girl can wear.” -M.M

  • Noor Akhtar says:

    Hey teni,
    My name is Noor and I am 17 years old and from England(which is where u need to come!!☺️) I was thinking a lot about what I should actually write about in order for u to know how it feels to know a person like you. I mean obviously I don’t know you but I guess I feel as though I do. So Im just going to go with the flow as I wanted this to come from the heart because whenever I feel down I just block myself from the world for a few minutes and turn to your videos to make me feel better because Teni it’s the type of person you are and I hope you realise that☺️.I came across your videos about 2 and a half years ago and I immediately subscribed to your channel and like you do I began to stalk your videos and really enjoyed each and every one of them. I remember being ill one day and I was in bed all day on my phone and all I did was watch you on repeat for hours on end! I probably sound like a psycho right now….. Anyways after I started to watch you, your success really peaked and I honestly felt so proud ☺️because if someone deserved this it was definitely no doubt you!!! ❤️I mean all these company’s that send u products obviously know how amazing you are and they know that you have an influence on people like me which is why they ask for great sponsors like you xx The opportunities that you have been given are awesome and I am soo happy for you like when tarte cosmetics offered you a trip to Turks I was like you go girl!!! And creating ur own lipstick with that cosmetic company (sorry forgot the name) girl u deserved it all!! Especially when you came out with your own palette omgg it looked stunning but I was unable to get my hands on one here from the UK but the point is I’m thrilled for you and I hope you realise how much of an impact you have on people and how much you deserve all of this recognition. I mean you are definitely the most down to earth person ever!! And ur makeup is super fleeky!!! I mean when I was in year 9 ( about 14 years old)I would wear this super shimmery blue eyeshadow all over my eye and once I wore this red shade with a purple eyeshadow in the crease and a girl asked me if I had a been punched in the face honestly though,I thought it looked fine !! That is when your channel was introduced to me(thank god for that!)your contouring videos have to be the best for me! Although you don’t need to contour as you have the most beautifully defined cheekbones ever!! never mind your cheekbones-your whole bone structure is simply stunning. I feel as though I have so much to say to you so I just start to ramble on and on! But I just hope you understand that I am trying to tell you that you are such a positive person no matter what hate and negatively you get, you are the most loyal and kind hearted person I know and you see us subscribers as a priority which I love!!!! Teni you haven’t changed in the slightest and I hope you carry on just being you xxx also I am an a-level student currently doing biology, chemistry, physics and psychology which are draining me sooooo bad!! But nonetheless I saw your video in the morning and thought to myself that I will reply to you in the afternoon when I had finished my work yet during studying thinking about writing to you was all I could think about ❤️ I almost forgot to talk about the q&a you did when you started to cry seriously teni I was a hot mess!! I had goosebumps listening to you and just wanted to squeeze you and give you a big hug!!! but I know that whatever happens I am certain that you will go on to do big things in the near future and I will be the first now to give you a huge congratulations I have such a passion in makeup and although I am doing sciences I really want to do something in makeup and I just want you to know that you played a huge role as being my inspirationxxxx ❤️ soo sorry for the long essay but I love you soooo much and am very thankful for everything you do xx see you soon (fingers crossed) and a huge congrats on nearly hitting 100,000 subscribers(just give it a few more days) xxx ❤️

  • Amber rose says:

    I love how I can watch your channel with my daughter. I’m 29 & she’s 12, she loves makeup as much as me, so it is hard to pick someone that we can watch that I don’t have to worry about. I’m picky on who she watches. You are such a natural beauty & you speak so well & carry yourself as a lady should, so I feel 100% confident with her watching your videos!! I wouldn’t know what to do if I won, but honestly I just love watching your videos. Congrats on almost hitting 1 million! You deserve 10x that much!!
    Love you Teni! Hope you have only great things to come your way….

  • Mehri says:

    Hi Teni!

    First of all, thank you SO MUCH for doing an amazing giveaway for your subscribers! Congrats on getting so close to 1 million! You deserve it, girl!

    I want to say how much I love your channel and your personality. You are one of the very few youtubers who are so classy, down to earth, true to yourself, and genuine. The first thing that caught my attention when I started watching your videos was your classy and modest taste in makeup and clothes. There are not that many people who are so tasteful, and who appreciate their natural beauty before anything else. I am originally from a post Soviet country, and seeing an Armenian woman succeed and being a “goal digger” (lol), really inspires me to strive for better and put certain challenges and goals for myself. Even though I don’t know you personally (I wish I knew!), I think you have a great and kind personality. It shows through your videos, the way you talk and the fact that you foster doggies! I think a person who genuinely loves animals can never be a bad person.

    I want to wish you wish the best in your endeavors and I will always support you and your channel. You go, girl!

    P.S. We have birthdays almost on the same day. Mine is July, 18 🙂 #teamcancer lol
    Check your snapchat too 🙂

    Mehri

  • Teni, congrats on all of your success, so well deserved! I started following you around a year ago when I was looking for Youtube videos on how to contour. Now you’re one of my favorite influences to follow, especially on Snapchat! Although I’m still not great at makeup, I feel like I am much more confident when applying it in the morning from watching your tutorials. Thank you for helping me feel more beautiful!

  • Barbara says:

    Teni! I’ve been following you seen I saw your first video in The Platform. I thought you were (and still are) so cool, but since that video I subscribed to your channel and I ”got” to know you. I find you so incredible and an inspirational human being. Thank you for been you and teaching me so much in life, srsly. Thank you for always been you and staying truth to yourself.

  • Isla Smeaton says:

    Hi, I never usually leave comments on the internet but I thought that the fact that you used a Jhene Aiko song in the background of the facebook video was a sign lol. I don’t have a youtube account so this give away has given me the perfect opportunity to thank you for your channel. I never watched beauty videos on youtube until I discovered your channel, you stand out from other make up vloggers to me because I do a lot of painting and recognise so many of your makeup techniques from how I would shade a painting or drawing, you clearly know exactly what your talking about (have you done painting in the past or present?) and the results show. I always watch each video more than once as I find them so relaxing to watch, you seem so happy and genuine and don’t take yourself too seriously. If I’m feeling sad your videos always cheer me up, the bird song in the back ground of one of your recent videos was particularly uplifting. I’ve been wanting to leave you a comment for some time and until I saw the giveaway video I didn’t think about your blog as the way to do it without having to make my own youtube account! Thanks for the time and effort you put into every video/social media post, you make a lot of people’s days that bit betterxx

  • Sumera says:

    Hi Teni!
    I found your channel trying to find neutral make-up looks for “brown eyes.” What I didn’t realize is that not only are you a beautiful person, but you are a beautiful human being. You are real, you are concerned, you are caring, you cry, you laugh, and most of all, you inspire! I find myself impressed not only with your take on what it means to be a friend but also, what is means to be a daughter, a sister, a HUMAN.
    Thank you for embracing what you have been given and showing us ways to jazz it up! Wishing you loads of success and happiness as you march forward! Keep it up and ROCK ON!!! 🙂

  • Tia Green says:

    Around 3 years ago I was going shut down everyone calling you a Kim k look alike, did I start taking my “hobby” more seriously. I admired your work ethic and followed your journey from a blog to YouTube to fashion week. Your hard work and dedication inspired me to get more serious about my own passions. I am now a substance abuse counselor for teens and always speak about loving yourself first and focusing on what you want versus what others want you to be. You may not have the same story I have, but your dedication definitely inspired me to be a better person really put my all into the things I love and the things that really matter. Not some stupid boy.

    • Tia Green says:

      Around 3 years ago I was going through a terrible break up, I had completely lost myself in someone whom I thought was my everything and truly wasn’t. I got into YouTube to distract me from the heartache and it wasn’t until I came across your channel did I find true belief in myself. It may have been your kind voice or the way you shut down everyone calling you a Kim k look alike. I started taking my “hobby” more seriously. I admired your work ethic and followed your journey from a blog to YouTube to fashion week. Your hard work and dedication inspired me to get more serious about my own passions. I am now a substance abuse counselor for teens and always speak about loving yourself first and focusing on what you want versus what others want you to be. You may not have the same story I have, but your dedication definitely inspired me to be a better person really put my all into the things I love and the things that really matter.

  • Tamara Peralta says:

    Hi Teni!
    First of all I am going to start off by saying that your tutorials are by far the most down to earth and sincere. I’ve watched my fair share of videos and you truly keep it real and that is what I connect with the most. You emphasize natural beauty with a pop of glam and shimmer ! Not only am I a huge fan of your tutorials ( pretty sure I’ve purchased the majority of products you recommend, and they have yet to fail me!) , but I am also fan of who you are as a person. After watching the Q&A video, you talked about how no matter how hard things get to always continue to believe that things will get better, believe in your dream and most importantly in yourself. You empower us to follow our dreams and to never give up, so I thank you for that!

    Now for my favorite videos.. All of the everyday makeup routine and fashion tips! Can you make more fashion videos?! I must say that the Nars creamy concealer is the BOMB, yes I purchased both custard and ginger! The jouer highlight pen is flawless and who needs a contour palette when you have the two faced chocolate soleil bronzor, they are truly great for an everyday makeup routine! I could go on an on.. You’re my makeup & fashion icon! You are chic, classy and simple, don’t ever change!

    I have never watched another YouTuber that creates such flawless and natural looks. I love that that is what you do, as I’m not into bright flashy makeup. I love the glowy look. Thank you for putting out such great content!

  • Jafrina yasmin says:

    Omg you are so close to 1 million subscribers congrats. Love your channel so much one of my favourite beauty youtubers. You have such a humble personality really enjoy watching your videos. Keep the awesome videos coming. Love you xx

  • Shannon Hurley says:

    My favorite thing about your channel is how classic and classy you are. You exude sophistication. I find your calm demeanor and pleasant attitude very refreshing. Of course, I love trying out the makeup looks you post as well! You are an excellent role model for others.

  • Sara Saud says:

    I can’t believe you’re hosting this amazing giveaway! Just the thought of it makes me happy, I can’t imagine if I win. I’ve been subscribed to you channel since ever I can remember. My beginning of makeup loving was mostly thanks to you, a friend recommended your channel to help me to learn a few years ago, and ever since I’ve been following you. Your makeup is so inspiring and exactly matches my taste, you’re so beautiful and I love your tours and other videos too.

  • Rima Patel says:

    I first started watching your channel because I was like hell yeah a girl with my skin tone let me get her foundation secrets! And I stayed because you always do looks people can recreate at home with out without the same exact products! I also keep watching because in the most non creepy way ever , your eyebrows are ahhhmazing! I’m trying to grow mine out and I’ve mastered the peter gallaher look right now but it’ll get there eventually haha! You are always so friendly and sweet on social media your viewers are like your friends and I love that about your channel!

  • Tracey Hornsby says:

    I love learning new beauty and lifestyle tips and tricks from you! My face was a hot mess before I started watching your videos, so thank you for helping me get my face together! haha 🙂

  • Kati D says:

    Teni-

    You are such a sweet, genuine girl who has inspired the minds and hearts of so many, mine included, with your beauty and fashion videos. But not only have you taught the world about beauty, you have also taught us how to love ourselves for who we are and to sometimes look beyond that in giving back to others. You are a true role model!

    Many wishes to you,
    Kati

  • Masha says:

    Hi beautiful, I have been watching you from the start, you give me such inspiration and I love your videos. I knew you have a big heart, when I watched your video -Turks and Caicos, that video made me cry so much. You have a beautiful soul and I love you for that. xxx

  • Henri Oseguera says:

    Teeeeeennnniiiiii ! The first video I’ve ever watched was your drugstore foundation videoe, and I fell in love. I went to the store and bought the same color as you and it matched perfectly. I’ve been looking for the perfect foundation and I found I with your help ! But not only did I gain a great foundation from watching your videos. But every night when I put my girls to bed and I get to watch another video, you inspire me. Lots of people get inspired by your makeup tutorials, but I’m inspired by your heart ! I’ve never met (and I’ve never met you LOL) someone with such a pure hearted woman with 100% good intentions. But that’s you. You’ve not only helped me change my outer look but you’ve helped me change my heart as well. Thank you for everything you do. You are beautiful and I’m so blessed to have found your sweet channel. Xoxo Henri

  • innocence says:

    i was always ashamed of my face shape , because girls of my entourage all had big jaw , or chubby face , with baby cheecks , and they would point that i have no cheecks and my cheekbones are really apparente , and that my face is not symmetrical , so it became an insecurity of mine , i even hated looking at my face in the miror , so i did the scarf ( i am muslim) to hide my cheeckbones and hide my face shape , i even tried to gain weight , to have these cheecks and hollywood stars square faces , but instead i had fat stord in other areas , so i really felt ugly at one point , but after discovering you , and seeing that we have the same face shape , and how beautifull and confident , you are i realised that it is not an asymmitrical face , it’s a mature woman face , and it’s actually very beautifull !! and beeing different is ok , different make you unique , now looking back i know that it’s immature , how i was thinking , but you made me realise that so i thank you , you made me also realise that kindness and confidence make you look even more beautifull , you are definitly my favourite youtuber , not just because of that , because you are soo talentend , and nice and humble !! i adore your tutorials , and especially the fall makeup , gray smoky eyes , and brown somky eyes tutorials , keep up cause you have it all , i wish you success in this domain and in your life in general one last thing , i plan on taking of my scarf , because there is no reason to keep it now , and because real faith is in the heart , peace 🙂

  • Monique French says:

    Hey Teni ,
    Thanks for making sure that everyone has an opportunity to enter, usually I don’t get to enter because I don’t have social media anymore but the reason why I’m also entering isn’t just because it’s a giveaway but to let you know that you’re truly just an inspiration to my love of makeup. Watching your videos have helped me to understand and grow this passion for something that I never knew I would develop. Growing up when someone would ask me what do you want to be when you grow up? I never knew what I wanted to be/ do, now I do. I want to become a makeup artist and show people my talent, I may not be the best right now but we all grow. That’s why you can’t stop posting videos! Your tips really help and your video editing is so cool and professional. Omg and how could I forget your outfits and vlogs!! You always slayyyyy. That oscars dress ? All I have to say is .. Damnnnn that was stunning my favorite dress. Watching your vlogs as well esp that one I think you were on a tarte trip to Turks and Caicos you touched my heart with the dogs. You’re such a caring person and that’s what I love about you, your heart is so big and warm. Good things always happen to genuine people stay positive Teni ❤️ I love you and thank you! I wish I could show you my tiny makeup collection that I have but I don’t know how to lol, for my birthday last year I got my first Mac products a lipstick and eyeshadow I was freaking out . I’m 18 years old an I’m from st. Lucia in the Caribbean! If you read this it would mean the world to me if you email me regardless I could show you what I have and some makeup looks just for fun .
    xoxo

  • Tisha Caedo says:

    Hi Teni!

    A huge part of what drew me to your channel was because we basically have the same skin color, so I felt that I could (in some weird way) relate on what products you were using. And if I ever wanted to get one for myself, I didn’t need to guess so much on my shade because you’re there to be my guide!

    And because we have the same skin color and I find you to be such a beautiful person, whenever I watch you, you make me love me. I wasn’t always confident with my tan skin because I’m from the Philippines and here, fair skin is what everyone wants. But I overcame it, I’m actually still overcoming it; and you’ve been a huge factor as to why I now love myself.

    You’re such an inspiring person, you’re one of my role models, your makeup looks are always #goals, and I’m so happy that you’re finally reaching a million subscribers! Hope you have many more, mwah! <3

  • Carla says:

    Hi, Teni! Congratulations on the well-deserved success, and thank you for being AUTHENTIC! I LOVE all your videos because they encourage women to embrace and enhance their natural beauty. Your snaps with a bare face show your perfectly imperfect flaws and strengths. So, THANK YOU for sending a good message to rising young women and for empowering the adult ones. The blog that has inspired me the most is the one where you opened yourself about your life to the point of getting emotional and teary- it’s Ok! I did too – it just shows that you are a sincere and down to earth person. You shared the hardships you have encountered in life and how you have come from nothing to your current stage in life, accomplishing it all with hard work. I am about your age and finally graduating from college – the timing is not by choice, but I am equally proud of myself – and even though I cannot afford much makeup these days (college is a priority, pure honesty here) I still try to get creative…always motivated by your inspirational tutorials. So, a big thank for your glowy and refreshing makeup tutorials, and that giving heart of yours!

  • Angela V says:

    HELLO! I absolutely love your YouTube channel! There is a lot of beauty channels out there but your channel is hands down my favorite. You are very talented and make your videos so easy to follow and fun to watch! I love trying out new makeup looks and learning new tips and tricks. You are such an inspiration, keep being you because you are fantastic!!

  • Cassandra says:

    Hi Teni!

    You inspire me to work at what I love, makeup! You are so real, down to earth, and humble! I love watching your videos because they are genuine. Overall, you have taught me so much and I will continue to watch because I love your makeup and fashion! It would be a dream to win the giveaway so I can say I use the same makeup as the beautiful Teni!!!! 🙂

  • Safiyah Salim says:

    Teni! I don’t even know where to begin with this comment because I don’t even have the courage to explain myself to someone amazing as you. For as long as I could remember I’ve been subscribing to your YouTube channel because I believe the first video I ever saw was your wedding makeup tutorial – && instantaneously I thought to myself that I needed to look exactly like that on my wedding day (which wouldn’t be until like I don’t know – the next ten years or so) I’ve always admired how real you were and how you stood up for yourself in all your videos. I love how mature you are when you speak about certain situations and certain experiences with such grace. I have learnt so much about you, not only about makeup but how to be a better person in general and I religiously watch your snapchat everyday and I miss you when you don’t snap because a part of me is missing. I’m better known as Sophiee Salim from Trinidad ( a little island in the Caribbean close to South America ) and for most of my teenage years I was bullied by persons who I thought were my best friends and people I thought cared about me and actually wanted the best for me. Makeup was my escape, it’s here that I found my art and my skill where I can be myself and express myself and be who I wanted to be (using neutral colors of course). I’ve always been picked on for being too skinny or the fact that my undertones are yellow and olive (thank the genetic gods right lol) and my hair is so thick and curly that people just assumed that I was out of place and out of my mind. I’m currently attending USC (not to be confused with your university but it’s the university of the souther Caribbean ) I’m doing my biomedical degree where I can return my selflessness and help kids in need especially ones with disabilities and disorders because that’s my drive and my passion in life. I’ve hit too many bad bumps in the road and I’m not letting anything or anyone stop me. My funds are pretty low and winning makeup will surely make me happy because it’s not something that I can easily access. Teni I wish you all the best and all the success that life can give you. I love you so much <3

  • Samira says:

    Your tutorials and product recommendations are phenomenal! I definitely trust you as a resource and try what I learn as well as pass on tips and tricks to friends and family. I will always be a plain Jane at heart but love that now I can do a little more with what I’ve learned on your channel. You also have a great personality and are fun to watch.

    Recently I used one of your get ready with me videos to do my own make up for my baby shower! It was not only nice collecting compliments but your suggestion to wet the beauty blender to use for application of makeup was solid advice 🙂 applying in the order you did also helped too, I felt confident and was glad I didn’t shell out a bunch of money for a make up service.

    Thanks for doing what you do so well!

    Hello! OMG I love your channel on YouTube and your blog!! This is a new experience for me. I have never really watched YouTube videos until recently and when I saw your videos I had to subscribe and follow you on there because I just fell in love with the things that you show us! I really hope to see more makeup tutorials on there as well because I go and look to see what new stuff to get!! I am a HUGE fan of Too Faced and Urban Decay as well. They just recently opened up a new Ulta near me and I just absolutely LOVE it there!! My hubby gets mad at me every time I go in there because I end up spending A LOT of money!! lol.. Anyways thanks for the chance to win some of your awesome makeup !! I am super excited !!

  • Meilyn Planas says:

    I have loved your channel for so long! Your skincare issues video saved my life!!! I now love Murad because of you so thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and your time with us.

  • Calista says:

    HI TENI! YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW YOU HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE!-ish … So I went to Sephora and got the makeup forever HD foundation in a set that costed a lot of money.. EVERYONE was raving about it that time so I got it without researching it deeper and when I got home I researched AFTER I got it. So your video about your favorite top foundations popped up so I watched it. And you said your favorite foundation was the Born This Way Foundation. I can’t sleep that night knowing the born this way was better so the next day I went to Sephora to return it and I was so nervous because I have never returned something in Sephora before. THANK GOD I returned it because that following month, I was invited to a fashion event and SPECIFICALLY ON THAT DAY I woke up with horrible breakouts so I used the born this way and in that event there was this famous makeup artist in my country that complemented my skin and makeup and I said I used the born this way foundation and we talked about makeup and she asked me for my Instagram and number! She asked me if wanted to ask meet her again and watch her work with celebrities backstage if there was another event! It wouldn’t have happened if I wasn’t using that foundation recommended by you so thank you very much

  • Janness says:

    Hi Teni, I like how you have such good energy and vibes in your videos and your tutorials are looks that are more wearable compared to many who are super dramatic and it’s just more easy to learn and do it. Love from Singapore! 🙂

  • D says:

    Hi Teni!

    I’ve never been on your blog before until today but I really love the setup and this font! (strange but true)
    I think I’ve been a follower for over a year and have completely changed my perception of you over that time. I love the way that you are so much more relatable to, than many other beauty bloggers. I truly laugh when you have rants on snapchat because it just shows how down to earth you are and ‘real’. I also really admire the fact that you’re so generous to everyone and especially your family.

    Love xx

  • Teni Sarkissian says:

    Hi Teni,

    I’m so exited for this give away. I thought of million ways to make my comment original but its kind of had to stand out from all these amazing people who have so much more inspiring things to say. I’ve been following you for a very long time and snapped you my desperately lame makeup selection.
    One thing that might stand out is that my name is also Teni and I spell it the same way! I wanted to know if you ever get Teri on email and Penny over the phone lol. Luv U!!!

  • Sofia-Maria Adamopoulou says:

    The funny thing about watching your videos and trust me i ve seen them all,i even watched some of them multiple times, is that I love the way you place your pinky on your face to control your moves.And one day i realized that somehow i managed to mess up all the beautiful job i have done to my base to look flawless.Little red marks all over my face ,cause i forgot to mention that i have little red spider veins and redness on my cheeks and noise,and i gazed at the mirror clueless how the heck did that happened.Suddenly i just hit me ,i was doing the Teni s pinky thing…I was sooooo into your videos tutorials that i copycat even your moves to get them done, yaaaas!

    Loving your neutrals cause im a neutral girl myself too!

  • Nur Ike Diana says:

    Hi Teni.
    I think that we both can certainly agree that the true definitin of beauty is being comfortable and most certainly confident in your own skin. No matter what race you are, what color your skin is; if you can portray that element of confident, your beauty will shine through.

    I have always been passionate about make up. Of how it can transform your mood from sad to happy just by applying make up and seeing the outcome. And certainly of how it can make you feel. *from UGLY AF to maaaaan my eyeliner gonna cut you b*tch! Lol*

    Make up is my comfort zone, my security blanket if i may say so. It puts me in such a mood and i always always love putting it on. *ahhh the feeling* I am not a cake your face up kinda gal but i do like to accentuate my features, just like you do in your tutorials! I feel like i can relate with your make up.

    But also underneath all that make up sometimes we need to take the time to appreciate our naked skin. And i know some of us cant even stand seeing our bare face in the mirror but in order for you to feel happy, you need to accept your skin. Who cares if a pimple pops up or you have pigmentation, or you’re worried if sometimes talks bad about your skin. To me personally you need to let go of that insecurity and negativity and just let it go, throw it away. Insecurities will only get to you if you let it. So ignore the hate that people seem to love to spread and just be happy in your own skin.

    Lastly I just wanna thank you for being positive, always. Always putting out good content, always being confident in your skin and for being you. A lot of people, especially girls look up to you and its so good that you can spread positivity around the world. You keep doing what you do boo~

    Lots of love,
    Nana <3

  • Mariel Yekich says:

    Teni,

    I think I have truly enjoyed your channel not only because of the amazing tutorials but for making me feel more at ease with being a nerd. I love to have fun, don’t get me wrong, but for the longest time I did things that ultimately made me have anxiety because I thought I was going to be viewed a certain way by my friends. I am a smart, well educated woman and this still occurred. Watching you be so comfortable in your own skin has truly helped me embrace who I truly am, and that girl is a little organized, neutral, nerd but I like her. Wishing you all the best in your career!

  • Joanna Gonzales says:

    So this will be my first time entering a giveaway and I am going to be a little open about my personal life . I am pretty sure there is a lot of gorgeous women out there trying for this. Anyway, well make up is not only about the product or about the brand you use, make up is more than that. I remember back when I was 17 years old when I started using mascara; that totally change my world because during my middle and high school years I went through being bullied and it was hard for me to have a good self-esteem. I hated myself because of the way I looked, I was devastated, I was shy, had few friends and all I could think of was to be someone else. That is when I decided to try some drugstore mascara . The first time I curled my eye lashes and applied a little coat of mascara, I was amazed, as silly as it sounds, but I was amazed of what it did to my lashes! It wasn’t because how long my eyelashes were looking or how thick they looked but it was because it gave my eyes a different shape, a different vision and right there, that moment I felt pretty and I felt I could conquer the world. After that, I started using eye liner, then foundation, then blush and so on. I fell in love with make up and with what it could do to my face. I wasn’t just putting on product on my face, I was putting confidence, power, love to myself. Of course I was not the next professional make up artist and that only gave more reason for the bullies to bully me even more, the only difference was that it didn’t hurt me as much as before because I was too busy thinking about eye shadows and matching it with my outfit! This went on until I graduated High school and I was finally done with those bullies. Anyway to make my story short, up until today I use make up and I have learned to embrace myself and my own beauty. After what I went through, I have always believed that using make up is not to be someone else but it is to enhance your beauty and build your self-esteem. I enjoy watching your videos because you’re a natural beauty and even when you only apply a lip gloss you’re already shining! 🙂 Love you and continue doing what you’re doing because there are women out there like me who are always trying to find great products to put a smile on our faces!

    Ps. Also, every women out there is beautiful in their own way, there is no ugly women unless your heart is ugly then all of you becomes ugly. Beauty comes from the inside out.

  • Naima says:

    Hi Teni,

    Thank you for this giveaway!! Hope to win of course 😉 I’m so glad to have found you as a beauty guru I find really hard to find someone who has the same complexion as me on the YouTube world, so I follow you religiously. Plus I find you so inspiring and beautiful and of course your advices are always welcome. I would love to know if you are coming to France one day for a meet up, it would be great!!! Love you girl and keep going you are the best 😉

  • yosr says:

  • Michele says:

    I am relatively new to your channel. I found you through the collab you did with Chriselle Lim. I have been going back and watching all of your previous videos and have enjoyed them all! The quality of your videos are amazing! I was happy to see a video on organizing cosmetics, my two favorite subjects! I constantly search for new ways to organize my collection, thanks for the inspiration!

  • Christina Barsamian says:

    Barev Teni! Love your videos especially your armenian makeup video! It is nice to see a good role model to the armenian community! You are successful, smart, and pretty and you have great tips on all things beauty and fashion!

  • Dariana Renate says:

    Hi,
    I want to start off with thanking you for the prizes that you are giving away, as this is the first one I decided I want to enter. I just feel lost between all these comments haha.
    I haven’t discovered your channel that long ago, but I’m glad I did. You’re the type of person whose videos I actually enjoy watching, they’re different and appreciate it. A look that caught my eye was the Cleopatra one, and not to forget the colorful eyeliner one, as well. SO pretty! Your makeup, in general, is clean and classy, which I like a lot.
    As a random thing, when I think of your videos, the Nars concelear in Sand you always use, comes in my mind haha.
    Anyways, the producs you chose are absolutely amazing, so no matter who gets the prize will be a happy person. There’s no loss.
    Keep up the amazing job an good luck in everything you do, xoxo!

  • Cassandra Thompson says:

    Teni,
    Wow! So many comments already. You must love reading each and every one of them. So many kind words to reflect the work that you do. You can tell that it is not just about the beauty that you give tutorials on for our outside selves, but it’s the lives that you touch on the inside. Your truely are inspiring. You have made it hard to choose one video or Instagram post etc. My favorite has to be a tweet that instagrammed about being careful what you say. I can tell you welcome others’ opinions, however there comes a point when an opinion is disguised as people just plain being jerks. I loved it when I read it. Don’t take anyone’s bull shit. You don’t have time for that when you are reaching people the way that you do.

  • Marta says:

    I love your snaps! The funniest one when you are editing your video and sending us your awkward face. You are such a normal person with a distance to yourself and sense of humore, who can meke laught at this. I’m always laughing with you, because I can see myself. My awkward faces are probably identical <3

  • Tanya Barsamian says:

    Hi Tena! Love your videos 🙂 I seriously live vicariously through you on your trip videos 😉 You always have outfits and makeup that is on point. You also give great advice on makeup/fashion and I draw inspiration from that. I have been with you since the beginning and I look forward to your videos. Thank you for this giveaway!! <3 <3

  • Reema says:

    On the 30th of May, the year 2015, I spent the day frolicking the streets of Philadelphia. (Side note, if you haven’t visited Philly, it’s a must, and this is coming from a Baltimore native.) It was my boyfriend’s little sister’s birthday and we were gonna do it big. We started the day with a big, yummy, boozy brunch. Followed by manis and pedis, a glass of champagne in each perfectly manicured hand. This was all courtesy of my boyfriend, who was unable to attend the morning events, because he had to drop his parents off at the airport. I know, I know, I’m the luckiest girl in the world. (But wait, it gets better…)

    So after our glorious girls-only morning, my boyfriend picked us up and asked his sis what she wanted to do next, she suggested a bar by the art museum that makes really cool cocktails. We dropped her off at the front of the museum so she could meet up with her friends while we looked for parking. After finding parking my boyfriend asked if i’d ever seen the falls by the museum to which I responded, “duh, of course i’ve seen the falls, I’ve only spent 3 years here during college.” And he insisted that we walk towards a gazebo to get a better view of the falls. I didn’t get it, “I can see the falls perfectly clear from where we’re standing… Your sis is waiting inside, lets go!” His persistence won, we walked into the gazebo.

    He had recently visited Texas and asked if I wanted my gift from Texas. He pulled out a black box, and he said “I knew you’d love it the moment I saw it.” My heart dropped. I knew it! He was going to propose. My hands trembled as I pulled open the box. OMG OMG OMG it was happening. I pulled out a small black jewelry box, my heart racing, my eyes fighting back the happy tears that were welling up in my eyes, my throat felt as if it were in my chest. I open up the box, and there in front of me was the most beautiful, sparkling… GOLDEN SNITCH NECKLACE FROM HARRY POTTER.

    Well, damn. I mean, my bad for jumping the gun. However, kudos to my boyfriend for knowing and accepting my passions in life. “It’s a locket, open it.” Oh, makes sense, since it opens at the close. (HP reference) I opened it up and inside it said, “Will you marry me?” That’s when I lost it… He had a very Harry proposal set up, just like I always wanted. He got on one knee, pulled out the most gorgeous ring ever and started talking but I was honestly breathing so loud and repeating the word, “Yes!” over and over. So I have no idea what he said.

    What does this have to do with you, Teni? Absolutely nothing… but you are relevant to this story, I promise. Fast forward to now, we’re one month away from our big fat Indian engagement and I’m going to be doing my own makeup. Guess what my inspiration is? You guessed it, YOU ARE. Your video on “bridal makeup” is the one i’ve been practicing and modeling my look after. I love that it’s natural enough with just a hint of glam. Plus, tbh, I’ve always gravitated towards your neutral/casual fashion picks. 🙂 Always keeping it classy, Teni, that’s why I love ya.

  • Amy says:

    Hi Teni!
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your videos! Been a sub for so long. I have tried replicating so many of your looks. You create great content and I love how “real” you are with your audience. I loved your 30th Birthday look that you did (I too turned 30 as well) and have probably watched it an embarrassing number of times ;-). I’d love to win this giveaway but if not, I just wanted to let you know how awesome your are! Thanks, and visit Chicago again 🙂

  • Mariliz says:

    I stumbled upon your Youtube channel by luck and have been an admirer ever since! You practically taught me how to master my make up, since I’m all about the nude tones and natural looks, too! Not to mention though that I even love your bolder/smokier looks and have tried them out, literally step by step…play video, pause, apply primer, play video, pause, apply foundation etc etc (lol!). You’re such an inspiration not only look-wise, but you seem to have a such a genuine and kind personality (Snapfam here!). I wish you all the best!! Love

  • Shriya Kalavapudi says:

    Hi! Love watching your snaps to take me away to LA life and your puppies. 🙂 Keep being real and doing you!

Love u so much ,ur my true inspiration.

  • Aleyson Huesgen says:

    One of my favorite videos of yours has been the How I Got Clear Skin video. I’ve watched you for such a long time on Youtube and have always really admired your openness with your subscribers, I was struggling with acne at the same time you posted that video, and both your openness and tips for clearing your skip helped me so much… both my skin and my confidence! You’re the best, Teni!

  • Maria Martinez Piera says:

    Teni!
    You are so beautiful, so radiant, so genuine and kind. I love your videos so much, anywhere from make up tutorials to travel diaries. I look forward to those videos because they make me smile, not only that but they teach me so much. You inspire me to branch out into the make up world but also be more comfortable in my own skin. Your fan base is so strong and friendly. It’s like a big family and like you said we have been through this together. I am so proud of you and I look forward to seeing where you go further on in life.
    Stay radiant! Xoxo

  • Diane Balatbat says:

    Hi Teni! Congratulations on nearly reaching 1 million (if you havent by the time you read this)! Thank you for all the hard work and thought that you put into your videos. I’ve always been a bit of a tomboy when I was younger and never touched makeup. My aunt took me to a salon to get my eyebrows waxed before I went to college. I bought myself a lip gloss when I was in my third year of university. When I was 27 my eldest kid went to kindergarten and had to attend PTA conferences, I was thought of as my son’s sister. At birthday parties, I was thought of as the babysitter. I had to change a bit to present myself as a mom and an adult. So I updated my clothes and searched on youtube on how to put on makeup. It was so hard because other youtubers were fairer than me, or so glamorous, or so young and very creative…it was very intimidating. Although I enjoyed watching them, I couldn’t apply what they were teaching. And then I found you and I thought you saved my life (makeup wise). When I go to the mall or even just the grocery store, I see so many younger than me and they look like they spent hours or fortunes on makeup. I envy them their ability to put on makeup. I follow the KISS attitude (keep it simple silly) and your minimalistic but high impact makeup really appeals to me. I’ve picked up so much from you and from so many other youtubers too that I think I can do a decent job now. I still have to learn how to do a winged liner like how you do it because we have the same eye situation. Last year, my daughter and I watched one your Halloween tutorials and she wanted me to do the alien queen makeup on her. She was so happy even though it didnt look a lot like what you did and it made me happy to just play with her and just trying things out. Thank you so much for the inspiration. I wish you all the best!

  • Diana Cristea says:

    Hello Teni, my name is Diana, I am from Romania and absolutely in love with your videos! I get excited everytime you post something haha. You are very inspiring and that’s what i love most you, your beauty videos, especially your vlogs wich are so nicely edited and they just make me feel so good 🙂 I wish you health and all the good in the world, which you really deserve!

  • Maria Chaves says:

    I can’t explain how much I love you. You make me happy every single day that I watch your videos. I have learnt almost everything I know abutou makeupo thanks of you and you make me change my old and wrong style to be a litle like you. You are my inspiration in life.
    I hope one day I could meet you, I live in Spain and it’s so difficult to me going to US. So for me winning this giveaway it’s being closer to you. I love you and I wish you the best!!!

  • Dawn Ellison says:

    Hey!!!!
    My memorable video from you has to be from your August 2014 where you done the smokey eye makeup and winged liner video. I was getting married in the November 2014 in Mexico in Riviera Maya and as a person who is just ridiculously unphotogenic i was making it my mission to find the perfect foundation and eye makeup so I looked nice in pictures just for one day. After spending a small fortune on foundation after foundation and trying them on my skin and watching video and review after video and review I was having no luck. Some foundations were too thick some not enough coverage some just looked plain bloody awful. I watched your August video and instantly fell inlove with your skin where you mixed ex1 with makeup forever HD and I had to try this!! Of course i didn’t have high hopes but prayed it would be the look and coverage I yearned for. When I received my packages and mixed the two and applied it was PERFECT!!!! it was officially going to be my wedding foundation choice from there on. I was sooooo thrilled with your video that I even decided to buy the too faced chocolate bar palette because you had used this in your video too and created a smokey eye. I decided to create a smokey eye like yours. The only difference I made was no winged liner and just a natural brown line with a pencil. Needless to say when November finally arrived and I did my makeup on my wedding day in Mexico I felt beautiful and all because of what you used in your video. It was a perfect makeup day and looked exactly as i had hoped it would. God i even had a good hair day and that was hard as with the moist warm air in Mexico i was permanently walking around with a frizzy afro but everything came together on the day thank god 🙂 I do have pictures to show you but cant attach them on this and don’t use any other social media apart from Youtube but if you ever wanna see you can 😉 Regardless of whether I win or not just want to thank you for saving my wedding day from a serious makeup disaster LOL mwah!! love Dawn xxx

  • Erin Van says:

    Teni!

    Although I LOVE makeup, my favorite video of yours is your WORK SPACE TOUR of your old desk. I think I have watched it AT LEAST 10 times. As a fellow nerd, I love seeing beautiful desk accessories.

    PS- Outliers is one of my favorite books . Gotta love Malcolm Gladwell : )

  • Chaïmaa Anas says:

    Love your videos and your personality. I hope I will win this giveaway. With love from Belgium.

  • Chelsea Thompson says:

    Teni! My favorite thing about you in general is your authentic and fresh personality. Because I have been watching your channel for so long and in all honestly, I am so happy that you have remained the same throughout the years and that so many awesome blessings are coming your way. My favorite moments of you are when you make silly faces on your channel! My favorite video is the individual eyelash video and how to apply them because your precision is always on point!!! I enjoy watching you even more now that you are on snap chat! I find myself talking out loud and saying “yassss!” or “preachhh!” when you’re going off on a certain issue that concerns you or when a topic strikes within the beauty industry! So thank you for always keeping it real and for being a beautiful soul throughout these years! I have so much love and respect for all that you do.

  • Erin Wynands says:

    Hi Teni. I first started watching your videos after searching for information about what the heck to do with my eyebrows. The video I watched was so warm, kind, and helpful. I was instantly hooked and subscribed. I love your style and I really feel the core of it is based on self acceptance and being the best you. A message I can get behind! You will be happy to hear I stopped over-plucking my brows and now have much fuller, youthful brows (albeit after a painful growing out process). All the best, Erin

  • Laney says:

    Hi Teni!!!! I honestly love you and your videos so much You are so beautiful and all of your videos inspire me. I love your makeup looks but some of my favorite videos are your interior design videos and I love watching all of your Snapchats to see updates with your house and life. Everything you do really inspires me. My family has recently gone through some really tough times and watching your videos has really been a way for me to escape everything that is going on around me. I love you so much and thank you for being you and being my escape from the real world and all my problems ❤️❤️

  • Amber J says:

    I don’t do this often, but I’m pretty sure that I subscribed to you after watching a single video. Usually I like to watch several videos from a channel before I commit to subscribing to someone so I can get a sense of their tastes and personality. With you it was an instant like! My favorite thing about you is how classy, sweet, and genuine you are! You have an amazing sense of style and killer makeup skills! I’m not sure what video it was that I watched or how I stumbled upon your channel, but I’m so glad I became part of the Teni youtube family! Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  • mellatrixx says:

    Hey Teni! I’m from Germany and my very personal memory with you has also something to do with my boyfriend. 2013 we had a hard time and it indicates to a break up. So we decided that we would have a date after we hadn’t seen us for a while. Our date was on the 18th October because thats our anniversary and we were together for 3 years then. The day before our date you posted the Selena Gomez Makeup Tutorial and I decided to give it a try on our special date. It went very well and after a time we figured things out. This year we will be together for 6 years. I know that it’s not because of the Makeup I wore but I will always remember you and this video.

    Hope you stay lucky und blessed.

    Much love from Germany,

  • Haleigh Bliss says:

    First off, I wanna say that I absolutely love your videos. I want to start by telling you about my makeup background. I didn’t start wearing makeup until sixth, and seventh grade. Makeup was something that took me a few years to master. I would wear the wrong bright blue eye shadow, bright pink blush, a shade to dark foundation, etc. To this day, I still struggle with makeup, but you changed for me. Obviously my mother taught me what she knew about makeup, but you have helped lead me in the right direction. I have the same eye color as you and my natural hair is pretty close to yours, so it’s very easy for me to take what you do and do it to myself. So I want to say thank you. You have inspired me endlessly and I’m not just saying this because I want to win. I truly want you to know that you have changed many girls lives with what you are doing. Your channel mirrors Michelle Phan’s, and you know what the similarity is? The hard work. There is a huge difference between a channel that is good, and a channel that is GREAT. Your channel is great. Thank you for your videos 🙂

    • Haleigh Bliss says:

      I meant to say “you changed that for me.” Not “you changed for me,” that doesn’t make sense. 🙂

  • Shelby Tyer says:

    Hi, Teni!
    I remember the first time I saw one of your videos when you first started your channel. As soon as I watched one of your smokey eye tutorials, I was hooked! You are hands down my favorite You-tuber of all time. Not only are you so talented, but your unique personality really shines through in your videos. It is obvious how much time and effort goes into each and every one of your posts and videos. You seem very passionate about your work, and it shows in your work. I have been obsessed with makeup ever since my aunt bought me my first lip smacker necklace when I was three years old. (I am also just as obsessed with brows and lashes as are you!) I have wanted to pursue a career in the makeup industry for as long as I can remember, but I always thought it seemed impossible. I always felt silly saying that I wanted to do makeup instead of finding a “real” career like my siblings. You have inspired me to go after what I love, regardless of how many people say I can’t do it. You are a perfect example of what hard work and dedication looks like! After hearing you talk about majoring in communication and how much you enjoyed it, I have decided to pursue communication with a minor in marketing. I would love to own my own business one day, and maybe even have a skincare or makeup line. Your videos are always one of the highlights of my week, and you are such an inspiration to myself and many others..thank you for being so amazing Teni! I wish you all the success in the world, and I hope I have the pleasure of meeting you one day!

    ~Shelby

  • Amen says:

    Hi Teni,

    I first started watching your videos when I was 5 weeks pregnant and was suffering from hyperemesis. My sickness was so bad that I had to take 5 months of work, lots 1.5 stones in weight and pretty much was in bed all day. I limited myself to watching 1 of your videos a day…..it was the highlight of my day at the time. My beautiful baby was born last April and sometimes when he was awake in the wee hours of the morning we both would still up in bed and watch your videos together!! Your videos have been a great inspiration and motivation for me to get back in shape and get my pre-pregnancy body back. Your videos do make a difference to many people out there, especially the ones that ain’t confident to talk to someone in person about make up and making themselves look and feel good. Keep up the good work.

    Love
    Amen xx

  • Jasmine says:

    Hi Teni,
    conggrats gurl, it has been so inspiring watching you grown with your channel! I can’t tell you how many stressed related, sleepless nights that your videos have got me through! I can honestly say that you coming to 1 million subscribers makes me so incredibly proud for you, your hour ought enjoy it! you’re constant dedication, I stumbled across your channel by complete chance, you popped up on my recommended and I was instantly drawn to your channel, I similarly have dark hair and features and was drawn to the way you wear colour, the visuals of colour drew me in and opened me into the world of makeup, since I’ve been so obsessed with makeup and fascinated by the power it has! my favourite video by far has to be your bold lip colour options video ( they opened me to a world of Colour I would never imagine wearing) your 1920’s inspired video, this video was my obsession I’ve rewatched it around 50 times, I love the look of the 1920s and this helped me for a few fancy dress parties and just general makeup looks because I’m obsessed with it! recreation looks, such as the cleopatra look are incredible, they inspire me!!! the colourful makeup and the different styles and designs are something that have bought the confidence out that I was so desprete to find! I have always been so shy and your colourful tutorials and general makeup looks have helped me so much! I just want to say I love the different style your channel has, it calms me and it’s simplicity but effectiveness is nothing the same to any other channel I’ve seen! my favourite thing is the way you use colour. the colour tutorials have now helped me express myself through colour which I thought I would never be able to wear because of my dark features! you helped me to work at what I love, makeup! thanks to you, have taught me about something I now love! you are so genuine! I love you’re down to earth personality! thank-you so much for the hard times you’ve got me through and the new world of confidence that you opened me up too, makeup has helped me become the person I’ve always dreamed of! thank-you, congrats for 1 million, I know every one of those 1 million have something they can thank-you for, for making their life better!

    I had to do makeup for a bikini shoot and your video ‘summer bronze glow makeup’ was the only thing that gave me the confidence on the day. It is unbelievably beautiful and I must’ve watched it 15 times in a row. I love your videos cos you just keep everything light and fun. Thank you for being there for me without even knowing you were xoxo #teamteni

  • Zara Steel says:

    My favourite moment.. is when you broke down.. in your Q n A video.. when you were answering the question about the financial struggles.. I’ve always thought you were so strong and confident.. but that day I realised.. that you were a lot stronger than I thought you were.. because I believe that being strong doesnt mean never crying.. it’s when you break and crumble to the floor and are still able to pick yourself up and get on with life.. and hussle and keep working hard! And that’s EXACTLY what you do.. I have soo much respect for you.. whether I win this giveway or not, I really hope you read this comment and you feel proud of how far you’ve come Teni cuz I am proud beyond words! take care!
    Loads of love! And here’s to many million subscribers more!!! ❤❤- Zara Steel

  • Christina says:

    Hi Teni!! I would love to be considered for the makeup giveaway! Your home styling has directly influenced how I styled my apartment, and I love how you refuse to give in to the usual overdone Instagram/youtuber Pounds Of Makeup thing! I mean people can do what they want of course, but your relatability (did I make that word up?) is what makes you my favorite guru! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Solveig Valen says:

    Hi Teny!
    First off, YOU ARE AMAZING!! You are so inspiring and you are an excellent teacher when it comes to makeup. Although I have become, if I can say it myself, quite good at makeup and have quite a lot of experiences with makeup, I still can’t not look at your videos. They are just so inspiring and amazing. NOT TO TALK ABOUT your bronzy smoky eyes, damn girl!! They are FIIRE!! I have to admit that I have chosen that exact look quite a few times, and it never goes old!! An your skin, wow, I can’t even explain how gorgeous it is!! You are literally the artist of all makeup artists!!!

  • Katie says:

    Hi Tenni
    I subscribed to your channel about 6 months ago, I watch lots of your videos and LOVE them im 14 years old and got into makeup just over a year ago, your videos always make smile and my memory of your videos that really stands out is your video was the first video that I was really proud of the makeup Id done, I was so proud and didn’t want to take it off…EVER! congratulations on almost getting to 1 million subscribers you deserve it along with all the good stuff that will come to you in the future of your channel, it would be great to win and share some of the wonderful treats with my friends and sister (who got me interested in makeup) but I also see all these other comments from people who equally deserve it! Stay brilliant xx

  • Marianna Petinaki says:

    Hi Teni!!! First of all, I wanna tell you how much you inspire me. You are the reason why I love make up and I’m really honest about it. I began doing my make up when I was 16 (but I was allowed to use only mascara 1-2 times a week). Long story short, I came up on you’re “no makeup” makeup tutorial and I really liked the way you talked, your “energy” (if I can describe it that way ), so I began watching all your videos and that was the begging of “the end” (in a good all of course). Since then I’ve never skipped any of you videos! You’re the reason why the last two years I’ve been planning of making my own YouTube channel. The only things that stop me are the fact that I’m half bulgarian/half greek and I’m a little shy when it comes to talking in English and in front of the camera I’d really like to be like you, to have that confidence, to be so comfortable in front of the camera and everything. When I understood about the give away I was thrilled. I’ve been wanting to get Urban Decay’s, Nars, Lorac and all the other brands. I’ll be so excited and happy if you pick me
    Love you, Teni
    Xoxo

    Thanks for the giveaway! Makeup is my biggest obsession and I love trying new things and learning how to wear them by watching your videos. Wearing makeup is what makes me feel a bit confident because I don’t have good skin, and I love how it transforms my face.

  • Hi Teni!
    I can still remember when I first found your channel. It was probably close to three years ago now and the video was all about your favorite skincare products. (You are the reason I got addicted on the Origins Nature line…but I’m definitely not complaining!) Your channel felt so honest and genuine, and was a place for me to go to relax and get inspired with makeup and all things beauty. And now, three years later, your channel is still just that. From the highlighting & contouring routines, NYFW travel diaries, and the halloween tutorials (I’m still dying for your red riding hood look btw), your viewers have grown with you and see you get the success you deserve. Congrats Teni!

    Love always,
    Kaylin

  • Nora Metta says:

    Congrats Teni on your amazing success! I love how you stay true to who you are without getting pulled in to all these hyped up ‘trends’. You are truly an insipiration to believing in yourself and staying through to your values. You actually encourage me to wear less makeup (even no makeup), whereas, a year ago, I would not leave my house without a full face of makeup. I want to say Thank You! Keep doing YOU & keep Shining ! Love you! xoxo

    Hi Teni,

    I am Indian woman based out of Chicago and a makeup enthusiast. I am not a profession artist but watching your videos have definitely helped me improve my technique and skill. I am going through a slow and sad phase in my life but playing with makeup and being happy with what I see in mirror definitely gives me a boost.

    Best thing that I like about your videos and something that I think make your videos stand out for me is polishing and presenting a better self than changing it all together. I don’t want to put on a new face I like myself!

    I relate to your videos as I have a similar skin tone as yours and I used to find it really tricky to find the right colors for my face either for eye shadow or lips but you made the things so much simpler. Thank you so much for your videos. You deserve many more subscribers. Wish you all the best.

    Lots of love
    Anupama

  • Moomal says:

    Hey Teni! You are such a down to earth sweetheart! I wishhh I lived in NYC so I could have come to your meet up a couple days ago lol. Anywaysss, the first video of yours that I watched was actually very recent; it was the snapchat Q&A you did. When you got a little emotional while remembering your financially rough times, which made me appreciate you so much. It just shows how hard you have worked and how far you have come. That moment was just so raw and real and inspirational all at the same time. Since then, I have been loving your channel, following you on snap, and everything else. Thanks so much for just keeping it real with everyone. <3

  • Visnu Luna says:

    ​Teni,
    ​First of all: I am very proud of you and everything you have accomplished.
    I was hooked on your channel from the moment I watched: “How to BIG SEXY HAIR! Tutorial” then you took it to another step when you started to go out of your comfort zone and incorporated colors in your FACE. from the red lipstick to the eyeliners… LOVE THEM.
    You are a true inspiration and great role model to me and all women around the globe.
    To accept one individuality with out paying attention to the negativity some people send and your care for animals is awesome.
    Thank you for showing me that its okay to love make up and it does not have an age limit =)

    Keep up your great work and most of all being yourself.

    God bless,
    Visnu

    Hey Teni, I’m Alex and I’m 17. I remember the first time I was on YouTube, looking for a makeup tutorial trying to find a way to use eyeshadow for the first time. I happened upon your video about the gold smoky eye, posted about three years ago. Every since that video I fell in love…( not in a creepy way, haha, I promise) with how beautiful you are and how you just seemed so personable. I’ve been watching your videos ever since, although I admit I didn’t watch them regularly( but I do now… haha). But now I find that when on YouTube looking for a makeup tutorial I’ll look to your channel first. I love your channel and will probably watch it for a long time; I enjoy your videos. I know that there will be hundreds of other people trying to win the giveaway like me, and I’m sure I won’t win, but I just wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed your videos over since I saw thar first one about golden smoky eye, and that I’ll continue to watch after the giveaway.

  • Chantal Mogezomp says:

    Hi Teni!
    I just wanna say that I love your channel and I can’t wait to watch your videos when there up! I think your quality is great and you’re always doing it like a pro.
    You’re so good in what you’re doing so please keep doing it and so that I can keep whatching them!!
    Lots of love
    Chantal

  • Laurie says:

    I’m actually a newer subscriber, but I came across your channel by doing a web search for skincare with retinols and your Skincare Issues video and up. You are beautiful and articulate and honest, and I was sucked right in. I have tried a few items from that video and want to thank you for turning this hag skin around into something amazing!! Lol I look forward to delving more into your channel! Thank you for what you do!

  • Nour says:

    Hi Teni

    My name is Nour Iam 18 years old and have been a subscriber for more than a year now. I Want to start with thanking YOU for the opportunity to win an amazing contest and for thinking about us, your subscribers. I have for a very long time fined it really hard to appreciate myself and being comfortable in my own skin. I remembered one night, a time ago, having my usual sleeping problem and feeling a huge empty space in my self esteem. I logged in to YouTube and all I could fined was perfect faces, perfect lifestyles and beauty gurus showing their talented wok. Nothing I watch gave me hope nor happiness and I was done with myself. Then I came across your channel. You’re so down to earth and I remembered how calm and amazing I thought your voice was. I watch the first video and continued till I was done with almost every one of them. You made me happy. Seeing you’re video was like sitting beside you watching you teaching me how to be myself and love myself. You where the first one to give me the bravery to play with makeup, u where the first one to teach me how to do eyeliner on my hooded eyes and you where one of the first women who let me feel that I was okey and I was going to be okey. You are one of the reasons for me to finally being happy with being me and for finally sleeping well in the nights.

    Thank you for being you and for still being so humble to us, your fans. Love from Sweden!

  • Natalie Martinez says:

    Teni, you remind me of my sister, Sandra. The two of you have similar tastes in fashion, beauty & home décor. You’re both glamorous, sophisticated, yet laid back & humble. I’ve often sent her the links to your videos because your tutorials remind me of her.
    I love your style and your make-up techniques and I always look forward to each & every video you post.
    Thanks for being such a breath of fresh air on YouTube!
