Chrissy Teigen Pays Tuition For Aspiring Beauty Student

Chrissy Teigen just helped one aspiring skin care expert by taking a huge load off her shoulders ... she's paying for the student's tuition.

The student, a woman named Mercedes -- a self proclaimed skin care expert -- recently reached out to her friends and family asking for help to pay a $6k tab for classes in order to get a license in esthetics and further her knowledge in skin care.

Luckily for Mercedes, Chrissy came across her posting and plunked down $5,605 ... the remainder of the balance with a message, "I've seen this be your passion for such a long time now. So excited to see you fulfill your dream!"

Awesome move.
