Makeup Artist Delivers Drag Dream Makeover To Ecstatic 8-Year-Old Boy

 

It may still be the first week of the year, but an early contender for Mom-of-the-year is Ethan’s totally accepting mama.

Ethan, 8, loves Jefree Star (hopefully that’s a phase) and wanted to learn drag makeup.

So his mom brought him into MAC and Ethan sat down with makeup artist Joey Killmeyer, who did the boy right and gave him some killer tips.

Killmeyer shared the fierce finished look, as well as his admiration for Ethan’s mom’s parenting style, via Facebook:

A couple weeks ago I got my certification in lessons for MAC. Today I got to do my first one. I was not originally scheduled today but was filling in. This is Ethan, he is 8. He wanted to learn drag makeup. He loves Jeffree Starr. His mom is so supportive of him and is letting him discover who he is. I did one side of his face and he did the other. He did soooo great. He is a very talented guy. And I expect he will be a great artist in life. But I was so touched that his mom said I gave him confidence in letting him be himself. And it truly was meant to be that I worked today. It shows me the world is changing from when I was his age and that there is hope for kids who are different. And whether he is gay or not who knows. But I really respect the mom who is letting him be himself and discover who he is and what he wants to do in life. Please share if you like. Spread the message of acceptance. xoxo
