Forget @world_record_egg. There’s a new egg in town, and it’s gorgeous.

Twitter user @maripela_ posted a mesmerizing video of what appears to be herself decorating an egg, but it’s nothing like the egg dyeing you might think of.

She painted a full, beautiful face of makeup on this egg, taking it from nutritious to positively sickening in 52 seconds. We’re talking foundation, blending, contouring, powder on a hand-drawn face on with precise eyebrows, nose, and mouth. The egg’s final look is as natural as if it came out of the hen that way. And @maripela_ this did all with long, gorgeous nails.

The supremely talented Twitter user has the video pinned to her Twitter account, noting that, in Persian, she essentially “makes eggs pretty.”

Twitter is losing their minds over the gall of this egg to look so amazing with makeup. How dare it look so ravishing and fierce when the rest of us can barely get winged eyeliner right?

Other folks, like beauty YouTuber Thomas Halbert, are putting their own spin on beautifying eggs.

Some are upset that someone would waste makeup (and those amazing falsies) on an egg.

Of course, @maripela_ wasn’t the first to give the infamous Instagram egg a “makeover.” YouTuber Smokey Glow did two egg makeovers in a video posted last week.

So what’s next? Do we scramble or poach the egg and try to make a ~*lewk*~ out of that? How about painting an egg on a face? The possibilities are endless. We can’t wait to see more egg beauty.
