Some viral trends make us scratch our heads, wondering why it had caught the attention of so many people. Then other trends make complete sense, and we’re thrilled to see it get so much love on social media. When it comes to parent or kid trends, there’s almost nothing as pure as seeing how dads play with their kids. The latest – dads letting their daughters do their makeup.

According to Good Morning America, Brad Cubbie from Dayton, Ohio, sparked a viral trend after he gifted his two daughters, 10-year-old Khloe and 6-year-old Braleigh, a makeup kit for Christmas. Although he tells his girls that they don’t need makeup, he wanted them to have something to play with, to spark some creativity. And that’s exactly what happened.

Dad said that his youngest daughter asked if she could put makeup on his face. He obliged, telling GMA, “I thought it was going to be a little blush, but she was serious.”

The result? A face full of makeup for dad. We’re talking blush like the ’80s, blue eyeshadow, lip gloss, the whole nine yards. She went all out, practicing her skills, and dad shared the results on Twitter.

“Welp…my daughters got make up for Christmas,” he tweeted on Christmas day. The tweet has gone viral, with 31 thousand retweets, nearly 600 thousand likes, and he started a trend of other dads sharing their kids’ makeup artist skills.

The viral thread and trend it started are full of beautiful memories dads are making with their kids.

We love it when a positive trend goes viral. It’s a needed reminder that it’s OK to play. That it’s fun to let our kids try out new things – and there’s so much magic in these moments.
