This Dad’s Makeup Fail Is Actually a Brilliant Hack

He was trying to help and...he did

Some dads avoid all the girl stuff, but Reddit user _gina_marie‘s dad is not one of them. Not only is he super supportive of her beauty addiction, he actually bought her a makeup sponge to up her beauty game.

“He really loves that I wear makeup,” she wrote on the thread. “His mother modeled for Estée Lauder and I think it makes him think of his mother when I talk about new foundations I’m trying or new lip colors. He says I look like her too. It’s something nice we can talk and bond over.”

But as Seventeen reports, the sponge in question (which was a paintbrush from a hardware store), was not exactly what you’d normally use to apply makeup.

But, here’s the thing: His reasoning was totally solid. “He said he went to Menards and was getting stuff to paint a helmet and he saw the sponges on a stick and thought, ‘well she does put on makeup with a sponge, so why not get her one on a stick so it’ll be easier to control,'” _gina_marie wrote in her Reddit post.

Yeah, when you put it that way, we totally get it. Plus, as Seventeen points out, with the right kind of sponge, having the stick for extra control would be kind of amazing. A+ to this dad.
