Love him or hate him, you cannot deny that when it comes to makeup, James Charles knows what he's doing. So much so, in fact, that apparently people are dubbing him "the world's best makeup artist... in the world."

At least that's what one on YouTuber is calling him in a hilarious new video out to "prove" that someone who never wears makeup is without a doubt, 100 percent, totally better at doing makeup than James Charles.

This will definitely go well.

This is Anthony Padilla.

Yes, he's one of the founding members of the now-defunct Smosh, which was at many points in time the most popular channel on YouTube.

And yes, this story is completely biased because I've had a big, dumb crush on him since the ninth grade — but that's not the important part here.

As you can tell by his tongue-in-cheek tutorials for straight men, he's your semi-typical straight dude who doesn't wear makeup unless he's, you know, appearing on "RuPaul's Drag Race" or something of the like.

That being said, he still totally thinks he could do better makeup than James Charles... OK, not really.

It's obviously entirely satire, but please enjoy this video of Padilla following one of Charles' tutorials to "prove" he isn't good at makeup, which I definitely laughed way too hard at.

Some choice moments: "GET WITH THE F-CKING PROGRAM. HE'S A MEGA CELEBRITY SUPERSTAR MAKEUP ARTIST."

This fake headline from "The Richest" dubbing Charles the "world's best makeup artist in the world!"

"The specific James Charles tutorial that I'm going to follow today is the one where he turns himself into a mermaid, because growing up I always — ALWAYS — wanted to be a highly sexualized, water-bound, legless creature."

When he takes his shirt off because James Charles took his shirt off.

But then gets confused when the tutorial cuts back to footage of Charles wearing a jacket.

Beautiful plop!

Through following the rest of the tutorial, Padilla ends up covered in makeup... and blood. Totally casual.

So yeah. This is my favorite video on the entirety of the internet now.
