No hate, but some of beauty Youtubers look pretty damn ridiculous in their tutorials. What with the excessive pouting and fluttery eyelashes to show off their work, or the fact that they spend roughly 45 minutes applying a ‘natural’ looking base. We love watching these videos, but often times we are left just as clueless and confused as before.
And in came Morgan Hanbery. She posted a 2-minute video of her doing her makeup on Twitter and it was reposted over 80,000 times in the space of just a few days. Not because of any real skill or makeup insight, but because it was so damn relatable.
The video features Morgan painting her face in pretty much the same way all of us do – with a running commentary of swearing and more than a few dropped products. “I just see shit in the tutorials and I think I know how to do this” she says, before losing the lid to her banana powder.
Despite the fact her process isn’t as seamless as most beauty bloggers, her makeup still looks absolutely bomb by the end. “I actually like doing makeup” she captioned one of her selfies, which features her rocking a fierce winged liner and matte lips.
Since her first video had such amazing success, Morgan has since posted a few more videos in the series, which she has titled ‘bullshit makeup tutorials’. She has now had the chance to work with celebrities like JWoww and Christina Milan, and is receiving free makeup goodies from brands like Morphe and Covergirl on the regular.
All for one two minute video.
