This 10-year-old boy is better at makeup than you'll ever be - here's how he became an internet sensation

He puts our contouring skills to shame.

INSTAGRAM IS FULL of inordinately talented amateur makeup artists putting your own makeup skills to shame.

And now there’s a 10-year-old boy who’s taking social media by storm.

Meet @makeuupbyjack, a 10-year-old boy from the UK whose contouring tutorial went insanely viral earlier this week.

The video was shared on Facebook by the page VibeswithBae and has been viewed an incredible 44 million times since. And with good reason, the kid is preternaturally talented at applying makeup.

Jack joined Instagram in February and has since amassed close to 50,000 followers.

He has since showcased everything from natural looks…

To “unicorn frappuccino-inspired” looks.

His video tutorials are genuinely mesmerising.

How can a 10-year-old be better at doing a smokey eye than us?

He’s even able to apply fake eyelashes, no bother to him.

Me, aged 24: *too squeamish to apply fake lashes or use an eyelash curler*

This 10-year-old child: *applies them with the precision of a veteran makeup artist*

Admit it: you’d hire this kid to do your wedding makeup.


Jack is just the latest male makeup artist to become an Instagram sensation.

He follows in the footsteps of the likes of Jake Warden, a 15-year-old makeup artist with 1.6 million followers, and Manny MUA, who has 3.6 million followers.

The response to Jack’s tutorials has been overwhelmingly positive so far with many taking the time to encourage him to keep at it.
