Makeup Tutorial


It might seem like aeons ago, but there was a time when feminine hygiene products completely and utterly baffled you.

You may have seen them stored in your bathroom cupboard or squirrelled away in your mum's handbag, but aside from giving them a cursory glance, you didn't tend to give them much thought.

So, it's no surprise that when this particular eight-year-old girl found a pad in her sister's handbag, she struggled to see how she could incorporate it into her make-up routine.

Luckily, this kid was blessed with serious smarts, and didn't let the unknown product confuse her for too long.

Twitter user, Jaiden Park, took to Twitter this week to share the hilarious footage of her younger sister foraging for cosmetic supplies, and the internet is in absolute knots over it.

Commenting on the post which has amassed 38,000 likes so far, one Twitter user wrote: "The way she looks at it like 'Right so what do I do with you?'"

"She actually inspects it so seriously, I'm dying," added another while someone else remarked: "I can't count how many times I've watched this and it never gets old."

Ladies, that is gold.



We all wish we could make ourselves up like a MUA every single day, but for regular girls who don't know a spoolie tool from a tapered eyebrow brush, the struggle is real every time the makeup bag is opened.

From using the same brush for bronzer, powder and blush, to not having a bloody clue how to contour, there aren't a lot of beauty tutorials out there for the cosmetically clueless.

Luckily, Australian comedian Tanya Hennessy has encapsulated the thoughts of the makeup novices in her latest viral video. 

The relatable tutorial covers everything, from being intimidated into buying pricey products by luxury sales assistants to being clueless about contouring. 

Tanya literally vocalises every thought we have had while trying to get to grips with various makeup methods. 

"And then I do down here to give the illusion that I have one chin," says the comedian, attempting to apply a killer contour.  

Tanya even manages to give a little nod to the professionals with her montage of "self-indulgent" makeup shots at the end of the video.

Tanya is literally us every single morning, so we could not love this tutorial more.

Apparently, the world feels the same way, as the video has totted up almost 5,000,000 views and garnered over 82,000 likes. 

Have a little watch for yourself and see how many Tanya-style thoughts you have had while grappling with your beauty blender. 



A Moroccan television station has been forced to apologise for broadcasting a makeup tutorial which encourages women to conceal injuries acquired through domestic violence.

Daytime TV show Sabihayat and its network 2M faced major backlash online after last week’s airing of the controversial segment which offered “beauty tips” to those who wish to “camouflage traces of violence”.

2M has since released a statement through its Facebook account admitting that the feature was “completely inappropriate” considering “the gravity of the subject of violence against women”.

Thousands of people signed a petition on Change.org calling for “severe sanctions” to be brought against the show for attempting to normalise domestic abuse.

“Do not cover domestic violence with makeup, condemn the aggressor,” wrote the page’s founder.

While the model used for the programme’s demonstration wore fake bruises, Twitter users were offended by the suggestion that victims of violence should hide the work of their abusers.

“Instead of giving women makeup tips to hide evidence of #domesticabuse, please teach men how not to abuse women,” wrote one woman.

“Host spends more time talking about the best brand of makeup to cover domestic violence bruises than the actual issue of domestic violence,” said another.




She may have 24-hour access to a super talented glam squad, but that doesn’t mean Kim Kardashian West can’t do her own makeup.

In a very casual video which was filmed while Kim was in Toronto for Kanye’s Saint Pablo tour, the uncharacteristically rushed mother of two demonstrates for fans her personal makeup routine.

Speaking constantly throughout, the reality star asks her followers questions like “Does anyone else put foundation all over their lips” and “Do you guys listen to music when you get ready?”

While Kim’s routine appears relatively simple – well, at least compared to the full blown transformation sessions she has with her MUAs – it is by no means cheap.

Throughout the nine minute video, she names products like the $240 La Mer Perfecting Treatment and cosmetic brands like Giorgio Armani and Chanel.

But while Kim’s tutorial is a little frantic and pretty pricey, it certainly shows that this Kardashian has got skills. 


She may have quit the reality show which made her famous, but it looks like Lucy Watson isn’t about to disappear from the spotlight anytime soon.

While often the topic of controversial tweets, the former Made in Chelsea star has been receiving widespread praise online for her latest venture – a makeup tutorial which emphasises the use of products which have not been tested on animals.

With the help of her makeup artist Summer, the 26-year-old vegan demonstrated for fans that it is possible to create a smoky eye look using only cruelty-free products, although she was quick to point out that Summer’s brushes we not necessarily so.

So far fans have been very impressed with Lucy’s efforts with one writing: “I’ve bought loads of stuff from your videos…all cruelty free…Opened my eyes!  If we don’t need to use products that test on animals then why should we buy them?”

While another said:  “Just watched it.  Love the look!  I love those eyeshadow colours.”


There’s nothing like a good YouTube transformation to set the mind boggling, and since we’ve already had Lizzie McGuire, Cara Delevingne and baby Drake this summer, it was only a matter of time before someone figured out how to recreate Kylie Jenner’s face.

In a recent upload by South Korean YouTuber Pony Makeup, Hye-Min Park uses some badass makeup skills to turn herself into the popular reality star.

While the transformation was by no means easy – we’re talking around 25 products and God knows how much time – it is a true testament to the transformative power of makeup.

Pulling yourself together after a long-haul flight or even an early morning commute can be a day’s work in itself, but as Bella Hadid has shown in a new Vogue makeup tutorial, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Given that she’d been travelling for “for two months straight” at the time of filming, Bella – who is well known for her stunningly simple beauty looks – surely knows a thing or two about concealing the dehydrating effects a hectic lifestyle can have on the skin.

And while it’s clear that the young model is using high-end makeup products in the clip, it is interesting to note the ease with which she applies them.  While so many makeup tutorials achieve stunning results through precise, intensive and time-consuming application processes, the secret to Bella’s success seems to be her laid back approach.

In the short new video the teen can be seen applying a liquid concealer to much of her face before blending it in quickly with a beauty blender.  She then uses a cream Dior contour stick to define her cheek bones.

Again she uses the cosmetics sponge to blend, before adding a powder highlighter to the high points of her face and filling in her brows roughly with an eyebrow pencil.

Unusually the 19-year-old is shown putting a lash primer and mascara on her eyelashes before adding a gold shimmer shadow to her lids with her finger.

Finally Bella uses some clear gloss on her lips and twirls her wet hair into a bun to complete her fresh-faced off-duty look.  It’s that simple!




We've lost count of the number of times we've tried to recreate the latest makeup trend with the help of a YouTube tutorial only to slam the laptop shut two minutes in because the whole thing is too damn complicated.

Suffice to say we don't have much patience, so when a makeup tutorial manages to grip us from start to finish, we know we've found a winner.

Instead of acting like you should have a brush collection worth hundreds and enough foundation for every face in the country, this Twitter user has acknowledged that makeup application can be a tedious and over-complicated process in a move which has endeared her to the heart of millions.

From losing track of dialogue to admitting she doesn't always know what she's doing, Morgan leads us through her routine, and it is absolute comedy gold.

Oh, and the best part? She actually DOES know her way around a makeup bag, but just isn't one to brag…
