Rarely do we get the privilege of asking the world’s best makeup artists all our burning questions, so when Hung Vanngo opened up his Instagram story to questions today, the flood gates opened.

“I have 3 hours to kill on the plane right now. Ask me anything!”

And ask we did. Using the Q&A forum we’ve seen saturate our feeds as of late (think of it as Instagram’s version of Question Time), Vanngo answered a mass of questions (seriously, we’ve never seen that many dots). Questions were varied, and both professional and personal (Q: “Are you dating anyone? Asking for a friend! A: I am single and available”), as beauty devotees finally got the chance to probe one of the most famous makeup artists in the world.

So what did Vanngo say? Well, a lot (a serious case of RSI ensued), so we’ve curated our favourite pearls of beauty wisdom from Mr. Hung Vanngo. Pens (or iPhone notepad) at the ready.
