10+ YouTube Makeup Tutorials That Went Off The Rails

YouTube is such a great resource for any kind of tutorials and how-tos. It's especially handy when it comes to makeup videos. I'm always getting tons of awesome makeup application tips.

But I've also stumbled upon some questionable advice and makeup tutorials that make no sense at all. Like applying 100 coats of makeup. Yeah, you heard me right. Apparently, that's a thing.

Here's a girl who used a fidget spinner to apply her makeup.

Yum! I agree it's delicious as a latte, but putting it on your nails? That's going too far.

Now here is one item most girls have in their bathrooms.

I just never thought it would be used for this purpose. Come again? How is this practical?

Pardon my question, but why would you stuff a beauty blender inside a condom?

Clearly I'm missing something here. Why is she using her shoes, (yes, shoes) to apply her foundation? Since when did people stop using actual sponges? OMG!

To add insult to injury people are heating up their foundation then applying it to their face.

YouTube | Leyla Rose

Honestly, her face says it all. What's the point? It looks exactly the same.

This girl attempted to put on 100 layers of mascara.

Don't ask me why, I don't get it. Racoon eyes, anyone? Then she did this to her lips. Again, why?

This is what happens when you attempt to put 100 layers of foundation. I dunno why anyone would go for this look. I can hear her pores screaming in agony.
