Like mother, like daughter!

On Wednesday, Beyoncé shared a cute photo of Blue Ivy — dressed in a sparkly pink dress — playing with mom’s make up.

With eyeliner and lipgloss on her face, the 4-year-old is surrounded by tubes of product and brushes as she touches up her lips.

In 2012, the Grammy winner told PEOPLE she also used to play in her mother’s make up when she was young.

“I had blue eye shadow and red lips, and I put crazy blush on,” she said. “I looked like a clown, but I thought I was so beautiful.”

And though she’s one of the most ageless beauties in the industry, “my biggest thing is to teach [Blue] not to focus on the aesthetic,” she said. “It’s really about who you are, and the human being, that makes you beautiful.”

Its amazing that child turned out to be as cute as she is with Jay Z as a father. It really is. And its all thanks to Mama Tina’s good creole genes.

How sweet! It’s cute when little girls play with makeup.

not cute. And how absurd, she won’t teach her daughter that appearance doesn’t matter. Kids learn by watching.

Okay, this is a sincere question: does Beyoncé do any charitable work? I’d like to think she’s a decent human being but I just see her on fancy boats and touring. She doesn’t owe anyone anything but I don’t know how she is embodying a beautiful spirit. She wears fur too which kinda makes her seem out of touch and disrespectful.

Blue Ivy will grow up to be a Illumanti puppet like her Mama and Daddy.

“And though she’s one of the most ageless beauties in the industry…”

Bwuahahhahaha really People? Did her “people” pay you to write that?

heather on

I’m sure she did that cat eye and lip gloss application. That’s exactly what ot looks like when a small child applies make up

Why Blue’s eyes don’t look like B’s eyes?

Fatima on

Maybe after her tour The Carters will be pregnant with baby 2

North is so much prettier.

Rita on

She is so cute playing with makeup.

Kim on

Sure… a 4yo did that…
Not that B ever had much class, but to facepaint her kid in order to make a twitterpic thats something unhealthy. Not to mention putting att those chemicals on yout childs face. If you think she didn’t look ok, then just put a bag over her head. This way wont teach her any good values.
