There’s nothing more soul-crushing than losing some expensive makeup to a cosmetic casualty – like smashing a new bottle of foundation on the bathroom floor or leaving your favourite lippy in a hot car.
Kate Ritchie has just learnt the hard way that kids and makeup DO NOT MIX.
On Saturday the radio host posted a pic of her daughter Mae on Instagram, with some very creatively applied lipstick on her face.
She captioned the image: “Another @tomford bites the dust”.
Just for context, a Tom Ford lipstick retails for around $78 here in Australia. Ouch.
Kate’s Instagram followers were all too familiar with this parenting hazard, and shared their own stories of makeup mayhem.
“I can’t tell you how many lippys I’ve been through in a short period of time with two girls. I should have bought shares in a cosmetic company if I knew they were going to do this so often,” one person commented.
