On the one hand, Victoria Beckham's daughter doing her makeup is seriously cute, which accounts for the 166,000 (and growing) views on Instagram. On the other, nine-year-old Harper's makeup skills are actually really impressive.
Victoria gave Harper a set of the Lid Lustre eyeshadows from her namesake beauty brand VB Beauty and let her have free reign while playing with the textures and application. All the while, Victoria documented the makeover and uploaded it to the Victoria Beckham Beauty Instagram feed, where she looked chic wearing a glossy lip and her latest Future Lash Mascara, (easily a top contender for the best mascara on the market FYI).
"How MUA #HarperSeven does Lid Lustre: a wash of Tea Rose allover & a dab of Honey in the crease," Beckham wrote in the caption.

Using a fingertip application method (often the approach of professional make-up artists), Harper patted the eye shadow onto her mom's lids. To create a shimmery daytime smoky eye, she first applied Tea Rose, a rose gold shade, all over Victoria's lids and then took Honey, a bronze shade, to accentuate the crease for added dimension.
VB launched her eponymous beauty line in September 2019 with an 11-piece smoky eye collection, which included four shades of Lid Lustre and was inspired by her crystal collection. Each shade (Onyx, Blonde, Min and Midnight) is infused with a different crystal for “aura-amplifying energy”, and gives a wet, high-shine finish.
The collection also included the Smoky Eye Brick, £48, a plastic-free compact featuring four satin, matte finish shades. Nude lips was the next instalment to our new beauty obsession, followed by the first product in the highly-anticipated skincare line. Beckham collaborated with renowned stem cell scientist Augustinus Bader to create The Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer, a hybrid treatment that is part moisturizer, part pore-minimizing primer and part glow-inducing makeup base and continues to be a bestseller.
