Jack, who goes by “makeuupbyjack” on Instagram, has gone viral for his amazing make-up skills. At only TEN-years-old, his makeup skills puts ours to shame! (Thanks Jack…)
Jack – who dreams of becoming a celebrity make-up artist for the likes of Kylie Jenner – says his mum gave him his first palette from No7 when he was around 8 or 9 years old. “I was always really interested in the art of make-up and I liked the thought of having a lot of followers online, so I started making videos but I kept my Instagram account private.”
Finally taking his account off private, Jack’s Instagram account skyrocketed from 60,000 to 311,000 followers in a matter of months – and he’s even been contacted to appear on the Ellen show.
Jack says he had been previously bullied about being a boy who wears make-up and considered switching his account back to private to protect himself from the bullying. However, deciding that the positives outweighed the negatives, he persisted with his love of make-up. “After I blew up online everyone was so supportive. All the bullies were like ’we can be friends now” he says, whilst also noting that he only wears make-up to film his videos.
Only taking 30 minutes to do a simple look, we take our hats off to Jack! Check out the video from Cosmopolitan below:
