Andrew Edgerton, also known as “Hydrated Angel” on social media, is a beauty enthusiast who started making his mark in the world of makeup tutorials in 2017.
His fan base has grown quickly in a short amount of time, but his father’s comments make it crystal clear who his No. 1 fan is.
One of the vlogger’s more recent videos titled “Pride Pink Cut Crease Tutorial,” Andrew breaks down how to get a vibrant, bright eye look.
“It wasn’t really planned,” Edgerton tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “I just picked up my brushes knowing that I wanted to do something colourful and bright. Also, with Pride Month in full swing, I thought it would be perfect.”
The tutorial has received a whopping 76,000 views, but one specific clip left many people smiling, ugly crying, and cheering him on.

“That is so freaking awesome,” Andrew’s father can be heard saying in amazement while Edgerton touches up his bright pink eye makeup.
“Thank you. I’m filming it, so…,” Andrew responds while blushing and laughing at his father’s supportive remarks.
After sharing the short clip on Twitter with the caption, “Why is my dad the sweetest most supportive person ever im crying,” Andrew’s followers have been in complete awe.
“U have the best dad in the world I SWEAR!!! Really wish I were this close to my dad in real life and hopefully one day we could talk about anything together,” one user commented.

Love this – what a great dad. This is the kind of dad I want to be – one that supports my kid with everything.

The makeup star has been left completely overwhelmed by the responses he received.
“It warms my heart, truly,” he says. “To be honest, I wasn’t expecting the reaction that I got from the video, and it makes me a little bit sad to think that so many people are shocked by his kind words. So many folks have been messaging me explaining how they wish that their dads could be supportive and that they’ve had traumatic experiences with family.”
“My father has always been supportive and excited about my makeup, so this kind of interaction is not rare. My dad was surprised to hear that this video went viral because to him, this shouldn’t be something abnormal. He believes parents should support their children no matter what.”
Now as an influencer the beauty blogger hopes to inspire and see more change when it comes to parents supporting youth within the LGBTQ community.
“Our time on this earth is so much harder than those who don’t identify with our community, and a safe space at home is so crucial to our well being,” he says.
“Whether or not you understand your child or what they’re going through, support from home is a necessity, and I hope this video illustrates that.”
