Sticking with a tried and true makeup routine (or none at all) is the easiest option when you have kids and a household to run. But here's a young lad who has no such concerns - his makeup skills will knock your socks off, and might inspire some to actually try out his looks.

Meet Jack, known as 'makeupbyjack' on Instagram. He's a rising star who already has more than 110,000 followers, all amazed by his sophisticated makeup skills at the tender age of 10.

Showing skills far beyond his years, Jack posts stills of finished looks and mini-tutorials of the stages of applying the makeup.

A video of Jack doing his thing was posted on May 14, on Facebook page Vibes with Bae, and it quickly went viral.

To date, the post has been shared nearly 400,000 times and attracted more than 200,000 comments. The video came with the caption, "You walk in to your son doing this, [what would you do]?"

Predictably there are negative comments, however many have expressed how impressed they are by Jack's skills.


And his family is right behind him.

We're thinking James Charles might not be wanting to get too comfortable about now, with this young whipper-snapper hot on his heels. Charles was appointed Cover Girl's very first Cover Boy last year at the tender age of 17 and now has more than 2 million followers.
