Ava, My Favourite Family, Thea

Like mother, like daughters: loving make-up runs in our family!

I love make-up, and have done every since I was a teenager. I love nothing more than trying a new product, although I have curbed my addiction over the past few years as I’ve been trying to only buy natural products as much as possible (there is way less choice).

I’m not the only one to like make-up though – here’s Ava a few years ago, putting my blusher on her nose.Ava putting on mummy's make-up

But if Ava needs some more application practice, Thea really needs some help!

When Thea got into mummy's make-up She’d been very quiet for a while, and normally, I’d have noticed (all parents know that silence is a sign of destruction or at least general naughtiness) but this time I thought she was with Ryan and he thought she was with me…

She’d opened my moisturiser and used my blusher brush to scoop it out and spread it all over her face, then opened my (new) mascara to add that on top. She was so pleased with herself!

So I needed a new moisturiser (she’d used about half, but what was left was all pink from the blusher) a new blusher brush and another new mascara. At least she only smeared it onto herself, not the carpet!

Run Jump Scrap!

      Thanks Helen, yes it would be heartbreaking if she got into the premium brand stuff wouldn’t it! xx

      Fingers crossed it won’t happen – it’s funny in retrospect but not at the time!! Xx
