And now he can probably apply eyeliner better than you.
An 8-year-old named Ethan got his Christmas wish when Santa left him a gift card for a makeup lesson, and an adorable photo of the lesson is now blowing up on Facebook.

“He is a very artistic child and loves to express himself creatively, whether through drawing, gymnastics, or performing arts,” Wilwert said. “This is just another form of that expression.”
Ethan had his lesson with makeup artist Joey Killmeyer. Ethan’s mother said there was an “instant connection” between the two when they met.
“It was such a great experience and from the moment we walked in, Joey treated Ethan as the client,” she said.

“It shows me the world is changing from when I was his age and that there is hope for kids who are different,” he wrote on Facebook along with a photo.
