The curse of leaving makeup on in skincare videos comes for Millie Bobby Brown

People are convinced that Millie Bobby Brown didn’t wash her face correctly in a recent video because she appears to leave on her eyeliner. 

Brown celebrated the launch of her vegan skincare line, Florence by Mills, by filming her night routine and posting the video of herself using her new products. As BuzzFeed reports, the original Instagram video was taken down, but a recording snagged by a fan is still immortalized on YouTube. 

She starts off by spritzing her face with some refreshing mist before gently scrubbing it. Then, she holds up a bottle of her face wash. 

“I’m really excited to use it, because I do still feel some of the makeup on,” she said in the video. 

Then it cuts to Brown, again, with the same dark lashes and eyeliner as before. 

“Do brands really think we don’t have eyes, like for real?” one baffled Redditor commented in the gossip subreddit r/BeautyGuruChatter. 

Another was just as incredulous. 

“I can’t believe she’s literally just dry rubbing her hands together and rubbing her face,” they said. “Is this a prank? Trying to think of why this video would even exist. Like maybe she sent someone some sort of mock up of what the video would look like before actually filming using the products??”

According to one comment, Brown’s Instagram replied to her own video, so it’s possible that she doesn’t even manage her own account. 

Brown is the victim of a longstanding curse that plagues nearly every star backing a skincare product. Kylie Jenner and Shay Mitchell have both been accused of not knowing how to wash their face.

In one video, Jenner’s foundation leaves streaks on a white towel, despite the fact that she just “scrubbed” her face with her skincare line. Fans mocked Mitchell for barely even touching her eyelids when she demonstrated using micellar water to remove her makeup
