John Mayer Filmed His Own Makeup Tutorial, and It's . . . Kinda Good, Actually
You might know John Mayer as a talented guitarist and singer, or as an A-list love interest. Maybe you're even a fan of his memes. But prepare to add the musician to your rotation of beauty influencers, because according to his Instagram story, Mayer is getting into the world of makeup. He filmed his very own smoky eye tutorial for followers using a Chanel eyeshadow quad ($61), and it . . . wasn't too bad, actually.
Sure, Mayer's application was a little heavy-handed — blend, blend, blend! — and his assertion that you don't need makeup brushes might cause makeup junkies to cringe a bit, but overall the finished look is surprisingly pleasant. For a first smoky eye attempt by somebody who doesn't typically rock dramatic shadow, we're impressed! And when the musician shared a "makeup-free selfie" after all was said and done, he certainly made us laugh.
Watch the full tutorial ahead, and check out some highlights from John Mayer's Instagram Story.
