Love ice cream? Ok, silly question, of course you do. You’re human. But do you LOVE ice cream? Like, enough to paint your whole entire face with raspberry ripple then glue waffle cones and sprinkles onto your head? Instagram’s beauty queens do.

A new wave of MUA’s are seriously committed to the sugar-sweet look, using summer’s most delish dessert as colourful inspiration for ice cream make up.

What better way to pay your respects to the school summer holidays (aka the best time of the year, apart from maybe Christmas and National Chocolate Day) than to rock up to your friend’s BBQ fully decked out like a super-cute Mr. Whippy. Sure, it might turn heads, but it looks SO PRETTY.

Better still, why not throw a summer fancy dress party for you and your squad just so you can debut Instagram’s latest hun. It totally won’t be weird if you’re all painted with sugar syrup. OMG, that might even mean that some of it is edible?

The best news about this new trend is that you can actually hide snacks on yourself. Genius, right? (We see that sneaky doughnut you’ve popped on your head for later, @bunnyneedsmakeup…)

So, the next time you’re off to a party, or just want to play around with the brightest shades in your make up palette, use your fave ice cream flavour as your muse. In fact, you should probably just go and buy a big fat ice cream sundae for research purposes RN…

Sometimes, the internet gets you down. Instagram makes you wish that you were somewhere in the Bahamas; Snapchat makes you wish that your parents had lets you go to Daisy’s birthday pool party; YouTube makes you wish you could do amazing winged eyeliner.

But then sometimes, the internet gives you a gift, something so absolutely perfect that you literally have to spend a minute just starting longingly at the screen. This is one of those things.

You know the only thing cuter than babies, with their chubby legs and their gummy smiles?

Babies dressed as old people.

Why is this so cute? Well, there are a number of theories being bandied about at the betty offices.

Theory #1

Babies actually look a lot like old people. They have thin hair and gummy smiles and they sometimes need help walking.

Theory #2

Their chubby cheeks actually support glasses really well. And my god, they can rock a cardigan and mid calf socks like it’s nobody’s business.

Theory # 3

Old people sometimes have a wistful look in their eye; a look that says “I have been places and I have seen things. I remember the day JFK was killed and the day the Neil Armstrong landed on the moon”. It’s pretty much the exact same look that babies get when they learn the word for ‘pasta’ or take two steps without falling over.

Look, it’s impossible to really pinpoint what exactly is so cute about paediatrics dressed as geriatrics, but let’s not explain the magic away. Let’s just stare at the adorable tiny humans and weep.
