Megan Michell, a 13-year-old from California, who tells BuzzFeed News she has “always loved doing her makeup.” So, in an effort to flaunt her talents and share her beauty knowledge with friends, family, and—fingers crossed—a growing crowd of followers, Michell started a YouTube channel “meggs and bacon” back in August.
Last month, she let her dad do the voiceover for one of her everyday makeup tutorials, and now, it’s going viral—up to 647,386 views!—this week thanks to her father’s genuinely funny and, yeah, pretty ridiculous commentary.
You know right away what you’re in for when Dad describes Michell’s e.l.f. primer as “made from the sweat of elves.”
And this beautyblender here? Yep, according to him, it’s an “little egg that’s squishy.”
He also has some very ~interesting~, quite literal interpretations of product names. For instance,”Now, this is called Too Faced … because just if you don’t have enough face, this will give you a little bit more face.”
Michell busts out her Urban Decay Naked (the original!) palette, her dad jokes about how pricey and lightly used it is. “Oh, Naked eyeshadow, yes! … This is a very expensive palette, and I only use a couple of them, but don’t tell my dad because it’s kind of a waste.”
This is pretty much the best mansplaining ever, right? And what a cute way to turn a plain ol’ makeup tutorial into something that doesn’t take itself too seriously and is even more fun to watch. Hopefully, Michell sticks with the beauty vlogging, cuz not only is she a talented MUA, but she and her dad make an entertaining duo.
