Okay so let’s just all admit we’ve watched a makeup tutorial once or twice in our lifetime. As if contouring, smokey eyes and brows-to-there were really just skills we inherited naturally. But of all the videos we’ve come across, Meggs and Bacon‘s dad voiceover video definitely ranks up there as one of the best.
As in, it could sit alongside the Jenna Marbles day-drinking-makeup tutorial kind of best. And to be honest it’s probably just as “informative.”
Basically if you’re a fan of dad-joke humour this tutorial will be right up your alley. In it, a daughter records your traditional DIY makeup video with all her favourite products. But instead of her explaining what she’s doing, her dad breaks it down step-by-step in the voiceover. And he describes it exactly as you’d expect any oblivious dad to explain it — with comments that are literal as heck. Think “camouflage” dots, an “egg” applicator or “Pocahontas gel.”
The whole thing is just as cute as it is funny, which makes it all the more endearing. Like when the dad teases the daughter about only ever using two colours in the Naked palette. Or when he prefaces her drawing on her eyebrows by explaining how she doesn’t like the brows God gave her. Our favourite line? “It’s a brush. I could use any brush but this one is expensive and it makes me look fancy.”
The whole thing is just over two minutes long, but we totally could have kept watching. What does this dad think of eyeliner, mascara and setting spray, for example?
Can’t get enough of the concept? Looks like the dad voiceover is actually a thing. Here are a few more videos to satiate all your dad narration needs.
