Former AFL player Brendan Fevola and his wife Alex recently shared they are expecting their fourth daughter. The couple are today shocking people with their latest photo of eight year old Lulu.

Brendan and Alex are already proud parents to three girls – Mia, 18, Leni, 12, and Lulu, 8.

Alex is of course a makeup artist with her own Cosmetic Line, Runway Room. So it is no surprise that the girls like to play with makeup. But is this too much for an eight year old? Their fans are saying it definitely is….

Brendan shared this photo of Lulu on Instagram captioned: “7 years is a long time in an 8 year olds life ???? lulu at 8 then at 1 and half #love #lulu #baby #biggirl”

Alex also shared a photo captioned: “Lulu after playing with Mums make-up! Looks like a teenager.”

Their fans are really not impressed with either of them.

Comments include:

– “Gracious, 8! I thought she was at LEAST 16!!!”

– “Just one question … Why sophisticated make up at age 8??… Absolutely agree stunningly gorgeous.. Sincere question.”

– “She is 8! Alex and Brendan get real. Take off the make up and let her be seen for more than just ‘gorgeous ‘ or ‘watch out boys’. How about we use descriptive words like kind, strong, fierce, smart, funny, brave ect. This really irks me!”

– “Remember she is 8 years old, not 18.”

– “So why have you dressed her up like she’s 18? Jesus Christ let her be a kid. She’s got the rest of her life to fend off creepy men.”

– “Seriously, use all of your celebrity to spruik your wife’s make up business but please don’t use your 8 year old daughter.”

– “Enhancing an 8 year olds beauty !! This is the problem. The culture of aesthetics is outrageous… 8!!!”

While others have pointed out, HELLO like Alex shared, she was just playing with mums makeup.

My girls all set for @aflfootyshow last night #love #family

  • I’m sure you would find that children who appear on TV for any reason probably have some makeup on. A girl I went to school with was in a Childrens Show and had to wear makeup every time. She reckoned it wasn’t much fun when she had to clean if off afterwards.


  • She is just a young girl who wanted to experiment with her Mum’s make-up. There is nothing wrong with that. Just don’t grow up too soon Lulu.


  • I think if it just playtime with makeup then its ok, but I certainly wouldn’t want to think of an 8 year old hitting the streets like this.


  • Obviously her Mum works in the make-up and looks business but this photo does bother me. An 8 year old should be playing with a little bit of lip gloss etc. and not look like a teenager. To then post and share… that’s not sending the right message.


  • Hmm. I have mixed feelings about this one.


  • If people don’t like what they do, don’t comment. I for one, am not into putting makeup on my kids, my oldest is 13 and even she thinks she is too young to wear makeup!


  • Personally my real problem is posting this young lass on Instagram…I do not like photo’s of children on social media.
    Any how … the post comments it was for play. Do the people that have such negative comments also dislike makeup for lets say : Ballet performances.


  • Seriously people need to calm down.


  • As the post says “playing with “. My daughter occasionally plays with mine but doesn’t go out with it on, she’s also 8 so i say no harm no foul. Saying that it’s not regular possibly because I don’t use much, her friend on the other hand loves makeup but her mum is a beautician so i guess it correlates to how much you see it being used ?


  • I take it is not everyday she does it. I wore make up younger then this but that was for dance recitals. Maybe a bit of lipstick for other times. Always liked coloured chap sticks for the colour it left. My daughters wear make up for special times with my teen wearing it for work.


  • I would be horrified if she wore makeup like thi everyday, but for dress up? More understandable.


  • If she says just having a okay with it, what’s the issue? If she was putting it on every day for school etc, then it would be an issue


  • I think perhaps the problem is it says “after playing with mums make up” as clearly she has not done it herself as it is too professionally done for an 8 year old and the colours are too right if that makes sense. It has been applied to her ….not her experimenting as it suggests. (which most kids do by them selves or with friends and look funny).
    But to be honest on the top photo of the 3 kids out in public she looks like a normal 8 year old not covered in makeup. So for this reason I dont have a problem.


  • Yes it makes her look older but you can’t judge off one photo.


  • Girls like to play with make up. When I was young we used pencils making them wet and colouring our eyes with that, by lack of real make up.
