Don't leave a toddler alone with a felt-tip pen the day after they've sat in on four women having their make up professionally done. If you do, this may be the result.
Yesterday the three of us ventured north for a make-up trial for my sister's wedding next month. LMC was fascinated to watch the bride and bridesmaids have their make up done and kept asking what they were having done. The phrase "having their make up done" didn't seem to mean much to her, so someone instead said that we were having our "faces painted". That she seemed to understand. So much so that today she did her own version with a felt-tip. I was busy in the kitchen preparing her tea when she suddenly went quiet. I sensed something might be going on so asked what she was doing, only to be told "I painting my face like mummy"!
It's not clear from the photo, but both eye lids had been coloured in quite well and when I questioned her a bit more it seems that she only had time to do her "eye painting in brown". Looks like I'm going to have to keep a closer eye on her in future!
