Snapchat has literally consumed our lives. We do it on a day-to-day basis but now, if you didn’t already know, We The Unicorns officially has our own account as well! You can catch up on all the BTS secrets of Unicorns HQ over on ‘unicornssnaps‘, as well as get sneak previews of upcoming interviews, but unfortunately we will never look as dragged up as Mayra Isabel – a 21-year-old make-up artist from California who literally just turned her face into a Snapchat filter.
Mayra, a.k.a mayratouchofglam, achieved the look using her standard makeup products… and a glue stick “to make these brows disappear”?! To achieve such a ridiculous look, she had to pretty much glue her original eyebrows to her face and repaint on bigger, more exaggerated brows higher up her forehead. You can watch how she achieved the entire look below. Are you feeling inspired yet?!
The video, which has gained over 538,000 views since it was posted only a week ago, takes the viewer through a step-by-step process in order to recreate our favourite Snapchat filters released to date. The look requires a “packed-on” layer of foundation, an actual glue stick and the darkest shades of red and black you can find to truly drag yourself up. Oh, and don’t forget the all important false eyelashes!
Once the look is completed and Mayra is blushed and contoured to the Gods, it’s time to complete her transformation with the signature heart-shaped beauty mark to truly copy the filter. She jokes at the end that she is immediately going to go and wash it all of her face as she can’t take herself seriously, so this definitely isn’t a look we’d recommend you wearing down the shops with your friends… If you ARE looking for something for achievable however, Mayra has a massively popular ‘Makeup Life Hacks’ video that you can watch below so you can pick up some from tips from a real pro.
