10 Teenagers So Good At Makeup, It'll Make You Say "Welp, I'm Worthless"

The rest of us are old piles of garbage.

1. James Charles, 17 years old

James is always trying out new, experimental makeup looks, and he's always got the most killer highlight to boot. (I mean, damn, dudes, just look at him.) Considering he already has 310k followers at just 17 years old, there's bound to be a bright future ahead for him in the beauty world aka you better hire this bb immediately.

2. Amanda Steele, 17 years old

Most people know Amanda Steele as MakeupByMandy24 on YouTube (which she started when she was 10 years old!), but this girl has made such a success out of her signature looks, she's now signed to IMG Models with a cool 2.1 million followers on Instagram. *looks at own dismal Instagram follower count, throws phone in garbage in disgust*

3. Bretman Rock, 18 years old

Bretman Rock has an insaneee Vine, YouTube, and Instagram following, because A.) He’s damn good at makeup and B.) Makes me gross cry-laugh on the daily. Like, I dare you to watch one of his videos and not cackle at your screen.

4. Kellie Sweet, 19 years old

Guys, I'm just on a mission to make Kellie my friend. She has over half a million YouTube subscribers, and I love how she isn't afraid to even talk about the tough stuff. Basically, she's so cute 'n' cool 'n' great at makeup, and she should just hang out with me 24/7, bye.

5. Sam Visser, 16 years old


6. Anna Millward, 17 years old

Anna is freakishly good (heh) at special effects makeup and just knows the beauty world so well that she deserves some serious props. Also, her Instagram name is CasuallyCreepy, which is so perfect I might cry.

7. Lottie Tomlinson, 18 years old

If you didn't already know, Lottie is the half sister of Louis Tomlinson from One Direction, and she managed to already score amazing beauty jobs working as a MUA on X Factor, helping out backstage at London Fashion Week, and going on Selena Gomez's Revival tour as her go-to makeup artist. When I was 18, I was a hostess at TGI Fridays and forced to wear a striped tie. COOL.

8. Saida Mickeviciute, 19 years old

It's clear that Saida is just a super-talented artist who (lucky for us) decided to share her expertise on her face for all of us to stare at. Her Instagram is terrifying in the best way possible.

9. Koleen Diaz, 18 years old

Koleen is the ultimate cool girl, and TBH, looking at her Instagram just makes me want to watch every single one of her beauty tutorials to learn all her gd secrets. HOW CAN A HUMAN LOOK THIS GOOD?

10. Erin Timony, 18 years old

Instagram: @fresh / Via Instagram: @fresh

Erin is so good at SFX makeup, I had to pick a freakin' video that showcases her buttloads of awesome work to even show you a hint of what she's capable of. Watch it and cry about all the things you haven't done with your life.
