"Really Tana? This is fucking disgusting @tanamongeau pay your artists."

Tana Mongeau is just out here asking for free things and everyone's dragging her for it. The YouTuber hopped on Instagram to ask if any of her followers would like to be her personal makeup artist in Los Angeles. Sounds like a pretty cool gig, right?

Well, sadly, the position isn't paid. That's right, the successful candidate will just have to pay their bills in "promo".

BUT, and it's a big one, you can try out any look you want on her. Tana is your "canvas", just make sure you're available round the clock, okay?

Tana's Instagram Story read: "Looking for an MUA in LA that would wanna work together frequently in exchange for an abundance of promo!

"Wanted to get my makeup done more often for simpler stuff/work. You can also use my face to try out new looks/be your canvas for your Instagram!! We can always try new stuff. Looking for someone available a lot/flexible/willing to accept mainly promo as compensation."

Well, at least she's being honest I guess…


Let's be honest, Tana isn't exactly broke. According to Super Hub, she's reportedly worth $1 million aged just 20. So, yeah, she could probably swing that money an aspiring MUA's way.

Sure, she has 3.3 million Instagram followers and over 4 million YouTube subscribers, so for a makeup artist looking to break the industry it would probably be a great gig. But, no compensation at all? Not even some merch?

People couldn't believe she would even dare to ask for free makeup services without barely a thing in return.

Tana has now clapped back and insisted that she has makeup artists constantly try to contact her, offering their services in the hope of getting some exposure.

We guess the best things in life really are free.
