Mario Dedivanovic is a celebrity makeup artist who obviously cares more about makeup than appropriate childhood development.

On the list of things to be upset about, this is low but it's also understandable. It's inappropriate to sexualize children, and if I saw a child with her face done up like this on the street, I might call CPS. Also, child pageants are creepy as hell and this little girl is serving some serious pageant face.

On the other hand... there's so many other things to worry about when it comes to the welfare of children. Remember that lady from Teen Mom who got in trouble for waxing her 3-year-old's eyebrows?

Eventually, some little girls and some little boys like experimenting with makeup and dress up. Of course, they probably wouldn't have the small motor skills to give themselves wing tip eyeliner.

I'd never want my kid to be a child model and this girl does not look like she's having the time of her life. The picture comes from a photo shoot for Saplings, an online publication that specializes in making pre-schoolers look cooler than you. For their next shoot, they should have the kids do their own looks, and let chaos rein! THAT'S something I'd throw in the repost app.
