How-to make up videos have grown from a couple make up gurus to one of the largest, and most popular genres on YouTube.

YouTuber Tadele Smith went viral last week with this hilarious feminist make up tutorial parody. Using the same style and flow of most gurus, she explains to her viewers how to put on the perfect make up to ‘give you the upper hand in defeating your male enemies.’

Even she admits she never expected her parody to become so popular, and never intended to offend anyone.

“It’s honestly not supposed to be serious or be taken seriously. It’s meant to play on some common misconceptions about feminism.”

In less than a week, she has accumulated over a quarter million views
