This is the weirdest flex, but OK.
Beauty guru YouTube needs to take a seat — TikTok users are showing off their makeup skills by dolling up potatoes in the delightfully weird #potatoportrait challenge.
The trend stared when @elona_balasyan pulled out a beauty blender and gave an ordinary potato a glam makeover worthy of a teen romcom montage. She adds sharp eyebrows, expertly blended eyeshadow, and plump lips. It’s beautiful.
As the video spread, jumping to other platforms like Twitter and Instagram, other TikTok users began imitating it, creating gorgeous potato beauty gurus who could compete with any influencer.
The next time you feel like a potato, just remember that they’re the future of makeup tutorials.
