My mothers makeup, my makeup by Alexandrina

By Alexandrina, Year 5

Written as part of Factory Feedback

my mothers makeup, my make up

sometimes I put too much

my mothers makeup, my make up

I always need that extra  touch


from lipstick to eyeliner then Mascara

she gets all these pretty things from Sephora.

The hot pink nail polish and

the soft brown foundation

all those beauty products

under 1 nation


If I could buy my own makeup it would be a dream

But mum won’t let me saying I’m too young

but I still make a pretend list, stuff like foundation soft as cream


my mothers makeup, my makeup

now I feel the power

I want to take all that makeup

and form myself a statuesque women tower
