Netflix' Bird Box has consistently found itself in the headlines, mainly because of how absolutely ridiculous the whole debacle is.

The movie sparked a change this week in YouTube's guidelines after people began posting videos of themselves carrying out potentially dangerous acts while blindfolded, such as driving.

The streaming giant even had to come out and tell viewers not to try the so-called 'Bird Box Challenge', but now the company is under fire for using REAL footage from a 2013 rail disaster.

In 2013, a 74-car freight train transporting crude oil derailed beside the small Canadian town of Lac-Mégantic, and resulted in the tragic deaths of 47 people.

At first, Netflix refused to edit its post-apocalyptic horror flick after it was criticised for using footage of the disaster. A spokesman told AP it had no plans to remove the footage; “We will keep the clip in the movie.”

Now, it has been reported that the streaming service will be exploring ways to prevent this from happening in the future. BBC reports that Netflix has used footage of the tragedy before, in the Canadian-American science fiction show Travellers.

Julie Morin, mayor of Lac-Mégantic, criticised Netflix for using the upsetting footage, telling The Globe and Mail: “You can be sure we are going to follow up on this, and our citizens are on our side.”

Peacock Alley Entertainment, who produced Travellers, released an apology and said they unintentionally dishonoured the Lac-Mégantic incident and would replace the footage.

Pond 5 also stated their regret that the footage had been ”taken out of context and used in entertainment programming”. They apologise “to anyone who was offended, especially the victims and their families”.

If you haven't seen Birdbox yet on Netflix, you may want to hop on that bandwagon, if only for the sake of these STUNNING make-up inspired lewks.

Sandra Bullock's massively successful horror thriller has the internet and streaming world absolutely hooked, not to mention competing in dangerous blindfold challenges.

We were graciously bequeathed with glorious memes at first, but now it's time for beauty to take over.

That's right, Birdbox beauty has begun and we are LIVING for it.

See for yourself;

Ryan Kelly shared this gorgeous image of Sandra inspired lip art, and the trend just keeps getting better.

From various birds painted onto the face, to lip and nail art, to cages drawn with eyeliner, the talent is so real.

Some seriously talented MUAs are incorporating blindfolds into their art, making some sweet sweet capital on the film's craze.

We wonder would Sandra ever try any of these?

SLAY GIRL SLAY. ROW THAT BOAT.

Who says Netflix can't inspire decent lewks?

The infamous "Everyone must look. Everyone must see" quote inspired this next artist, who has honestly one of the best eyebrows we've ever seen;

We NEED to try out this trend on our next night out on the town.

A real-life blindfold could come in useful in a nightclub…

Boy meets girl. Girl looks flawless and wigs are snatched. Boy needs blindfold to recuperate from seeing such staggering beauty up close. It's a realistic scenario, don't you think?

Why not give the trend a go and choose your favourite Bird Box concept for your next make-up regime, we guarantee you'll look incredible even while rowing a boat.
