This 10-year-old boy is a make-up prodigy

While you still can't tell the difference between highlighter and blush

By Lilian Min  May 26th, 2017

Thanks to social media, just about anybody can build a following. This is surely the case with the beauty world, where a whole generation of artists have made their mark with unique and innovative makeup. But one boy from the UK is turning heads not just because of his skills, but because he’s ten years old.

Jack, who posts on Instagram with the username @MakeuupbyJack, is a beauty prodigy. His false lashes? Totally even. His highlight? Beaming. His smoky eye? Impeccably smoky.

As Refinery29 reports, Jack first hit viral status when his video was used as part of a Facebook meme. The caption, “You walk in to your son doing this, wyd?”, elicited some pretty close-minded responses, but more folks were enamored at this young boy mastering makeup that, honestly, most adults wouldn’t be able to do, let alone pull off, even now.

Right now, Jack has over 60,000 followers, but it’s not hard to imagine that this boy wonder has a long beauty career ahead of him.
