Diply 24 Jan 2018

The world of makeup can be a big and scary place — especially if you ask most men.

Of course, that's totally understandable. I mean, the last time I was in Sephora, I stood there deciding between two different highlighters for a good 40 minutes.

But hey, at least I'm not as completely mystified by makeup as the men below.

1. Look at it this way: He learned two new things that day.

If I were the person this dude was texting, I would've held off a bit longer with my response.

You know, just to see how long he could go on about condors.

Can ya really blame the guy? At least he's asking questions.

This photo would've been much more appreciated in a chat full of women.

3. This guy, who was certain Kendall Jenner had 0% makeup on.

"You won't see more natural brah," Oh lord, SHS — Save His Soul.

The difference between au naturel and natural makeup is 10 face products, give or take.

4. Or this guy, who thought soaking a Beauty Blender in water would make it grow into a tree.

Pfft, I wish. At least then I'd get a little more action out of this $32 sponge.

5. Well, these guesses are pretty amazing.

I mean, "tear drop from a muppet" is such a logical assumption that even I — a person who knows this is a Beauty Blender — am second-guessing myself in favor of Muppet tear.

6. When he's jealous because you love Mario Badescu more than you love him.

I'm sorry, did you create a natural moisturizing facial spray that makes my skin absolutely radiate?


Then you're always gonna be second place to Mario.

7. And this guy, who thinks Taylor Swift's eyebrows are naturally that dark.

Or that her face is naturally that bronzed and contoured. Or that her lips are naturally that shade of — you get the point.

8. Remember those two dudes who were totally shooketh after discovering fake eyelashes?

Next up, a viral video where some girl pulls out her clip-in extensions in front of these two.

9. Naked palettes will henceforth be known as "a piano for your eyelids."

I mean, is he wrong? Not really.

And with the right falsies, you probably could play this eyelid piano.

10. When he can't tell the difference between #40 Striking and #22 Amore.

Twitter | @sm00chi3_

Look. Closer.

The one on the left has more neural, pinky undertones, while the lipstick on the right has a more reddish, watermelon vibe.

11. When he thinks a highlighter is the sort of thing you take notes with in class.

Twitter | @WeddingCatcher

Yeah, take me to the reality where I can get 10 face highlighters for $5.99.

12. And finally, this guy, who thought an eyelash curler was a surgical instrument.
