The world of makeup and beauty tutorials is a vast, strange one. In the past we have shown you 'hand' nail art and eggs being used a makeup applicators – but this latest video to have surfaced on the Internet is definitely the most bizarre one, by a long shot. In what is being dubbed as the "worst DIY ever", the video suggests chopping off your own hair to create makeup brushes.
Baffled? So were we.
The suggestion first appeared two days ago as part of a DIY tutorial video on an Instagram page called Five Minute Crafts. However, it went viral after a Twitter user shared it on the micro blogging website with the caption "this is the worst DIY I've ever watched."

Since being shared on Twitter, the video has collected 15.4 million views and thousands of perplexed comments. And though it appears to work fairly well as a makeup brush, the beauty 'hack' has definitely not impressed many people. While some have wondered why a woman would need to chop off her hair to create a makeup brush that she could just buy – there are inexpensive ones available – others have just cracked jokes.
She could of just bought a @wetnwildbeauty or @elfcosmetics brush for a $1 some things just don't need a DIY

If you can afford an eyeshadow palette, you can afford a brush.

I'm no beauty guru but I'm pretty sure she could've just used her finger and it would've applied more evenly. https://t.co/DYtY0asn70
