Please Enjoy This Horrifying ‘Finding Dory’ Makeup Tutorial

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We may never know just how many thousands of makeup tutorials the internet holds in its infinite riches, but we do know this: the only good one is this Finding Dory how-to.

Via BuzzFeed, this Finding Dory makeup tutorial is exactly what it sounds like: a video of instructions for transforming a normal human face into the face of beloved cartoon fish Dory. But if you thought this particular makeup tutorial would, like most, turn the artist into a prettier version of herself, it does not. Should you follow the directions, it will turn you into a horrifying aquatic monster who's likely to frighten small children.

To her credit, vlogger Chrisspy warns viewers outright that the result is "really creepy and scary when my eyes are open." She then dives into the tutorial by instructing us to start by rubbing a glue stick all over our eyebrows. A GLUE STICK.

That’s just the beginning! Watch the whole thing below, which involves fake fins, a bald cap, and an unholy amount of blue face paint.

As wonderfully horrifying as it is, however, I take back what I said earlier. This Finding Dory video is the second best makeup tutorial on the internet, after this Minions one.
