    For the clip, Gabe held a brush between his neck and his shoulders to wave at the camera.

    He then showed how he sticks the brush, his makeup sponge and other beauty tools to his table and moves his head around them to apply the cosmetics.

    In spite of the difficulty of applying the makeup without hands, Gabe did not cut corners, and applied concealer as well as foundation before moving on to contouring.

    To get the desired effect, he wedged the stick against the table using his shoulder and swiped his cheek along the top.

    He then switched brushes to do a smoky eye and added cream-colored eyeliner on his waterline.

    The makeup artist went on showcasing his incredible skills by applying a pair of fake eyelashes.

    While some might find the task tricky, Gabe has found an ingenious way to apply the beauty accessories.

    After putting the lashes on top of a bottle of product on the table, Gabe slowly drew drawing his face close to the lash so that it had time to latch on to his natural lashes.

    He then added a dab of blush on each cheek, before applying a coat of gloss on his lip to finish the look.
