Manny MUA Did Jeffree Star’s Makeup on Camera and Here’s What Happens – Allure Magazine

It’s always a little nerve-wracking to do someone else’s makeup — even when that person is your BFF. The stakes have gotta be ten thousand times higher, though, when your friend is makeup celeb Jeffree Star. Manny MUA (or Manny Gutierrez) was up to the challenge, though, and posted a video of himself doing Jeffree’s makeup despite the fact that he was, understandably, pretty nervous.

Manny posted the video of the duo doing their thing to his YouTube channel on May 13th, and makeup fans, obviously, freaked out. Manny and Jeffree have appeared together in videos before; Jeffree’s boyfriend even did Manny’s makeup on camera, and the two have teamed up to read their meanest comments. Manny even collaborated with Jeffree on some products for the latter’s eponymous makeup line, so it’s safe to say they’re pretty tight.

In the video, Manny gives Jeffree a classic shimmery “Manny eye,” but first perfects Jeffree’s porcelain skin with Dior Airflash foundation, La Mer powder, and Anastasia blush. Fancy, right? Well, when you’re super-famous YouTube makeup artists, you’ve probably got a lot of good stuff to choose from. They tweak the shape of Jeffree’s brows (temporarily, of course) and experiment with the “Sunset” palette from Natasha Denona. Manny finishes off the warm-toned look (which goes perfectly with Jeffree’s signature hot pink hair) with a Maybelline nude lip, then sprays it all down with Morphe setting spray.

“It feels amazing!” Jeffree says of his new look.
“It’s very me on you, but more of a dramatic version,” Manny agrees.

The two are obviously really comfortable with each other and totally enjoy spending time together; honestly, what’s more fun than getting glam and talking about makeup with your friends? Not much, and Manny and Jeffree know it. (Also, if you’re watching this video at work, you might want to pop your headphones in; it gets a little NSFW!) Plus, even tho Jeffree is a makeup pro, this look was a departure from his usual style and he found himself lovin’ it.

Watch Manny create his signature eye on his friend below, then call up your BFF and tell them it’s makeover time. (It’s OK if you don’t have La Mer powder.)
