A Scottish mom shared a video on Reddit that has since blown up with popularity. The video features a mother allowing her sons to put makeup on her and their excitement and glee is all too obvious.
The mom wrote on Reddit, “My [six-year-old] had been watching makeup tutorials with me and decided he wanted to film his own. It went. . . as expected.”
From eyeliner to contouring to blush on her chin, six-year-old Noah has a blast putting makeup on his mother’s face. Throughout the process, he comments on how beautiful he has made his mother, “She looks beautiful, doesn’t she?” To which his younger brother says, “Yeah.”
The mom overlays some snarky text to the video that will have any parent laughing!
Redditors loved the video for many of the same reasons that we did — that it shows a mom allowing her sons to be creative in an area that may be considered stereotypically a “girl’s activity.”
One viewer wrote, “I’m a 23 year old [sic] gay male and as a kid anytime I would play with anything remotely feminine I would always be told how wrong it was for me to be playing with ‘girls things’ which in turn made me really hate myself growing up & not being able to try certain subjects throughout school that I had an interest for in fear of being called gay & teased. . . Just really wanted to say that I think you’re pretty great.”
This mom is pretty great. Watch the video below:
