Halloween makeup tutorial from a 5 year old girl: How to be a sunflower

[Video Link]

WARNING: Watch this and you will die of cute.

"I really love this color for the eyes. It is good for... the liners... and stuff. And [unintelligible]... I would be a ch-... ch--... chocolate chip cookie. And I really love dis. I really love dis. You do the cheeks and stuffs."

  1. O I’m so dead of little yellow dots on a chocolate chip cookie…..I’m afraid my only hope of revival would be one more chicka-chika wowa, please……….. … ..

  2. She seems to have several other makeup tutorials. I am somewhat embarrassed. I’m 42 and a 5 year old knows way more than I do about makeup. I wonder if she could suggest a good eyeliner that doesn’t make my eyes feel like they’re melting … and that won’t make me look like a chocolate chip cookie. Cookies are so 2008.

  3. My guess is that by the time she’s in her fifties, she’ll get skin cancer from all the chemicals she’s slathered on her face since she was five…

  4. Her name is Madison and her mother is the one who got her into make up and on-line videos and she’s the one that posts them. Odd? Yes. Worse thing you could encourage your child to you? Of course. I chalk this up to an internet assisted game of dress up – admit it, you did this as a kid too but no one was watching. Who knows – she could grow up to be a famous make-up artist or actor/spokesperson some day.

  5. She looks likes she’s having a grand ol’ time.

    She could host a TV show already, if only cable access. But I bet she wouldn’t blink if it was National. Look how she dealt with the “heckler” (dog barking at the back fence). First she ignores him, then tries to distract him, and finally cuts to a commercial!

  6. I am 36 years old and she can use an eyeliner better than I can.

    Also PaulR, the Boing Boing audience might be interested to know that Christine Farlow is a doctor of chiropractic medicine – to assist them when assessing her credentials to make scientific claims.

    1. Yikes, oops, and D’oh! 

      I usually chase my links down completely…thanks for the heads-up.  OK, so how about: “Not a fan of
      Samuel S. Epstein, I guess.”

  7. I see a future for her in Burbank, Hollywood, or NYC.

    I sure wish she was around in ’76 to help me with my Halloween makeup, because my mom made me look more like a puppy dog than the Wolfman.
