Kids and Make-up don’t mix!

Would you let your 4 year old wear make-up or worse, put it on you?

I don’t normally wear make-up as I’m such a natural beauty!  Joking aside, I don’t do it because no matter how long I spent on it, the result would be the same…Yes, I’m passed it!  This is what I normally wear, yes, just mascara and lip salve.

However, I was given a challenge…allow your kid to do your make-up with no direction or input and with free access to your make-up.  Gulp!  This required a glass of wine or two.

This is me before….after I removed my lovely white linen work shirt.


I honestly don’t have a huge supply of make-up but, over the years, I have accumulated a stock for Fancy dress and 80s blue eye-shadow.  I still have the same blusher from 8 years ago.

The Joker was a bit enthusiastic.  I have to admit the eye-lash curlers were slightly painful and can’t help thinking lipstick should go on the lips?


So what do you think???  Stunner?? Hear me roar!

After watching her work her magic, I’m convinced I need to spend a bit more time on myself.

I don’t normally join into this type of thing but this one is absolutely hilarious so I’m tagging the following fellow bloggers.

  • Annie from Just Annie QPR
  • Monika from Mum on the Brink
  • Lisa from Mummy Whisperer
  • Helen from Actually Mummy
  • and for a laugh, no chance in hell she will do it, but Sally Whittle from Who’s the Mummy

Honestly, ladies have fun, it was one of those lovely mother and daughter moments and remember Baby Wipes are  your friend.  Can’t wait to see the photos!

  1. Be-au-tiful! Loving the array of spots she feels you need! God I now have a hankering after girls… My boys would never play this game with me, “ugh make up mummy, yuk”, they won’t even let me facepaint their faces anymore “not again mummy”. Looks like you both had lots of fun! Lovely!

  2. I’m still marvelling at your first paragraph which, if I’m right, claims you don’t need undereye concealer!!! You clearly go to bed earlier than me, and the rumours of your wine-intake are vastly over-egged!
