Some of us require many hours of staring at Youtube tutorials in order to know how to properly apply makeup. Some of us, however, are born with this kind of talent. As a surprise to precisely nobody, Blue Ivy Carter, who possesses half of Beyoncé's DNA, is among the latter kind of people.

In a flurry of behind-the-scenes Instagram posts from her "Hymn for the Weekend" look, Beyoncé shared a photo of her daughter playing with her makeup kit. Not only is Blue Ivy applying lip gloss like an absolute pro, but she'd also managed to attach perfectly placed rhinestones to her forehead.

But most impressive of all, Blue Ivy has already mastered the fickle art of liquid eyeliner. It's time to accept it: at age four, she's already better than makeup than you.
