You truly have to be a soulless human to think that Shay Mitchell is not one of the most perfectly sculpted breathing organisms on this planet. Especially when it comes to her makeup. But, even though her beat is somehow always looking flawless and glam wherever she is—red carpets, at the beach, in the comfort of her home eating Domino’s—that doesn’t necessarily mean that she has the skills to be a top-notch makeup artist. Like, this entire episode of Turn the Beat Around is Exhibit A.
To really make the stakes high, we had Shay’s model be none other than her own makeup artist, Ash K Holm. Keep in mind that Ash has also done makeup for little stars like the Kardashians, Camila Cabello, Kaia Gerber, Ashley Graham, and Bebe Rexha just to name a few on her resumé, thanks to Insta. Sooo, it’s pretty obvious Shay has a lot to prove here. I will say though, her kickoff is quite deceiving. She goes in grabbing her handy dandy tools and products from a Beis bag and goes right in to creating a cut-creased lewk on Ash. You would think it goes up from here.
She then goes in drawing on some liquid liner at the top of her eyelid and I think we can all agree that creating identical wings is an Olympic sport. It takes decades of dedication and practice till you’re even close to balancing the thickness and sharpness of each wang. Shay had a rough start to the liner stage and just a dumpster fire kind of downfall. She blamed it on all the cups of coffee she had, making her jittery and all, but Ash laid it down saying she drinks coffee before she does Shay’s makeup. Welp.
Let’s just say that while watching the rest of the video, my left eye was quivering for all those beauty gurus out there. Something I WOULD let Shay do on me though? Apply my falsies. Girl can do THAT, but that’s it.
