Ready for the Runway

Lillian Version of Eye MakeupLook carefully. Look VERY carefully at my youngest child. See that rather ominous purple hue circling her beautiful baby blues? She was given a plastic princess locket that had purple lip gloss in it (by her grandmother of course) but wasn't content with mere lip application. She walked by me and I did a double take.

"Uh, Lillian, are you wearing your lip gloss on your eyes?"

(Proudly fluttering her eyes) "Yup. Don't I look pretty?"

Snort. I'm going to have to stop laughing before I can answer that one. Rather gives her that emaciated-heroine-addict-runway-model look that's all the rage doesn't it?

LOL! I love how creative young girls get with makeup. Brings back memories of mine, especially since now she knows about the real stuff. :)

dcrmom said...

Oh that is so precious!

susan said...

As Barney Fife would say - Nip it! Nip it in the bud right now, don't let her play grownup...

If a little is good, then a lot is better, right?

Stacey said...

Hey, this could catch on BIG time. She's adorable.

Villager said...

Be careful. I think that the rock group KISS started out with a little lip gloss under the eyes!

Thanks for sharing a great photo for WW.

My Wordless Wednesday post focuses on a sad situation taking place in Louisiana (United States).

Happy WW! Villager

I like the look. Very unique. What a fun photo.

laughing mommy said...

I'm so glad my daughter is not the only one who has tried using her lipgloss as eye makeup!

Tricotine said...

Now, that is what I call creativity! LOL

Because she is "worth it!" ;-)
Happy WW!

Damselfly said...

What?! Are you telling me I'm wasting good money on undereye concealer and could be looking like a model if I go unmakeup'd?

Rebecca said...

She totally rocks that look-- purple's her color! ;)

Thea said...

Hey, she knows what she likes!! Good for her!

kailani said...

They're always trying to grow up too fast! Girlie Girl is the same way.

Ni Yachen said...

It looks like she is trying to cover up the bruises.

my4kids said...

Hehe....Kenzie does the same thing but she is getting better about it and only puts in on upper eye lids now....

Blondie said...

OMG--that is totally something I would have done as a young girl. She is well on her way to becoming just like ME. Aren't you excited??

(snort)

Leslie said...

Too cute!

You know, I can remember doing something similar when I was a kid.

Julia has only tried to apply something like eye make-up once - black marker. Luckily it was washable.

Jill said...

My daughter got the same thing and I would find it all over her face. She looked like a clown. Word to the wise: she left it in a pocket last week and now everything in our laundry is spotted with purple and it is very hard to get out

crazy working mom said...

Oh my goodness! My 4 year old daughter did the same thing. That is classic. I'll hafta dig out her picture. I have one of she and my niece with BLUE eyes...ALL the way around. It was too funny.

Babystepper said...

Hey, if it works for the super-stars...

mAsOn & tErrI's mOm said...

Oh My WORD! too cute!

I'm not looking forward to the makeup age..they are starting earlier than they used too huh?

Rachel Pommier said...

I can so relate. I have three girls and have spent countless bathtimes scrubbing lipgloss as well as my own make-up off of eyes (why is it always the eyes?) are various other body parts. Just today, while I was enjoying a rare nap, they woke me up to show proudly their noses which they had painted blue, with oil paint!
