A New Viral DIY Human Hair Makeup Brush Has Twitter Absolutely Furious

Andrew Roberts 1 Nov 2018

This DIY makeup brush proves that sometimes it is just easier to open your pocketbook or wallet and go to the store. The clip, shared on Twitter by @malicioustaurus, features a woman tying off a bit of her own hair, lopping it off with scissors, and proceeding to make her own makeup brush with it.

Weird From Start To Finish

That should sound strange enough, but the process actually goes a little deeper and wrinkled a lot of brains on Twitter.

Why cut directly from the front of your scalp? Why cut so much hair if you're just going to trim it down for such a small brush?
