We already know that Harper Beckham is a fashionista in the making, but recently her mother Victoria Beckham has revealed that Harper Beckham’s Beauty Regime is much more relaxed than her own. In fact, Victoria has revealed that she doesn’t want her daughter using cosmetics at such an early age.
Victoria says;- “I can’t put make-up on when Harper’s around, because she would try and do the same immediately, she’s a tomboy around her brothers”. The star then goes onto explain that allowing her son to feature in a Burberry campaign was a tough decision-
“After Christopher Bailey had spoken to me, I asked [Romeo] if he wanted to do it and he said, ‘Sure, sounds like fun’. And he had a lot of fun – he doesn’t take himself too seriously. Will he do it again? I don’t know. He’s more interested in school and sports right now,” she said. “The kids are under a lot of pressure to perform and I don’t want to pressure them. [I want them to be] keen and reach as much as possible, but the most important thing is that they are happy.”
Despite the fact that the Beckhams are arguably one of the most famous families on the planet, Victoria insists her children’s feet are firmly on the ground, and never forget that fame can bring the opportunity to do some good in the world;-
“They lead a very privileged life but they don’t get everything they ask for. We always tell them how lucky they are,” she said. “[Cruz once asked], ‘Why is it good to be famous, mum?’ and my answer was, ‘When you’re famous, you have a certain power to do good things.’ That’s how we started talking about charity. Cruz was really sweet and said, ‘When people listen to what I say, I could spread some good messages.’ It was a nice conversation to have with my child who’s only eight years old.”
One thing is for sure, the Beckhams do their fair share for charity and good causes and if their children follow in the footsteps of their parents, the Beckhams will continue to dominate the press for many years to come.
Do you think its a breath of fresh air to hear Victoria Beckham say that she won’t do her makeup in front of her daughter so that she won’t copy, or are you quite happy for your children to use cosmetics?
