Always wanted to be friends with that hot, slightly vacuous girl at school and know all her beauty secrets?

Subscribing to LaurenBeautyy, the 20-year-old Aussie blonde's YouTube channel is an all-access pass into the mind and make-up bag of this bombshell with 'tude.

Dutch beauty tutor Nikkie de Jager, 17, garnered 28 million views for her YouTube tutorials about applying on rhinestone makeup.

However, the message in this viral video wasn't a beautiful one.

In the video, she is dramatically thrown forward as if in a car crash.

Rhinestones fly like shattered glass. The footage was used as a public service warning against applying make-up while driving.

Nikkie's beauty style is feminine and edgy with enough detail to teach the most clueless viewer.

Her talent lies in taking celebrity and catwalk looks and making them achievable for all.

Average looking without make-up, she is popular with those who believe in the transformative effect of well-applied make-up.

Popular Tutorials: Natural glam with a pop

Nikkie's beauty tip: There is nothing beautiful about applying make-up while driving.
