In a world where children watch YouTube tutorials round the clock when they once waited for after-school cartoons, Harper Beckham has been paying attention. The nine-year-old also happens to have a willing model in her mom, Victoria, who allowed her to play with eyeshadow pigments from her own beauty collection to show off her skills.
In a video posted to the Victoria Beckham Beauty Instagram account, Harper’s little hands can be seen adding the finishing touches to Beckham’s eyelids with professional-level technique, applying the products freehand with her index and middle fingers, interchanging shades that blended effortlessly with Beckham’s luminescent existing makeup. Meanwhile narrating like a pro, sounding light years away from the days of dressing-up usually associated with girls yet to reach their 10th birthday.

Harper doesn’t just have the professional technique well-honed, but the dialogue, too. When applying the metallic gold shade from Beckham’s palette, she appeared to be walking followers through the look, detailing product specifics as she dabbed the eyeshadow shades into her sitting model’s (“my mummy”) eyelid crease.
Although a little too young to start a YouTube channel of her own, it appears Beckham has found the right ‘MUA’ waiting in the wings to inherit her beauty business one day.
