Former glamour model Katie Price has sparked debate after allowing her six-year-old daughter wear a full face of make up
In a snap shared on social media, a smiling Bunny, 6, is seen with lipstick, foundation, blush, eyeshadow, mascara and a set of huge false eyelashes.
Katie posted the series of photos on Instagram and told her fans: “Bunny loves makeup so much which isn’t a surprise because her sister @officialprincess_andre and me love it and opps I put it on @adventuresofkatieandcarl.”
However the images have divided fans, with some hitting out at the 42-year-old, saying the child is too young to be wearing make up and lashes.
One said: “Too young to be wearing fake eyelashes but ok.”
Another agreed: “She’s way to young. Just why. She’s a beautiful girl, why have her thinking she’s better with all this on her face?”
A third said: “I don’t like little girls with false eye lashes or make up let them be children for as long as they can, they don’t need it they pretty girls as they are.”
“Wrong on many levels,” another wrote.
One added: “This isn’t kids playing with make up this is mummy doing it professionally and i find it uncomfortable to look at.”
However, many came to the star’s defence, supporting her decision to doll up her daughter. One added: “Your baby you do what you want and she clearly loves it”
While another said: “I don’t see a prob with this at all, if she likes makeup like this she might grow up to be a professional makeup artist… If your a young dancer they look like this and put lashes on etc etc pretty dresses… let her dress up she’s only doing girly stuff after all”
Another said: “So what’s the difference between this and dance kids? My daughters have worn makeup on stage for dance comps since they were 3… and yes lashes and all!! Some people are far too sensitive!”
With another poster suggesting it’s just fun: “Everyone missing the point here – or rather most – make up is fun and little girls (and some boys) love putting it on which is great.”
While another stated that it’s all just part of growing up: “So pretty, I used to sit with my Nan putting all her makeup on at bunnies age, all part of growing up, and wearing her shoes and not being able to walk in them.”
Katie has since defended her decision to put makeup on her daughter.
A spokesman for the star told Mirror Online: “Katie appreciates everyone’s views, she does however want to reassure all those following her that both mother and daughter engaged in wholesome daughter, girlie mummy make up fun time together.
“Anyone suggesting anything otherwise is over thinking what is a normal activity, no one was hurt or harmed during this home make up play session, but much laughter , giggles and fun was had all round. Wishing all Mirror readers a very happy Sunday afternoon from Katie, Carl and the fantastic 5!”
