The Story Behind the Drawing
More than a decade ago, Denise Esktrand’s daughter decided to draw a portrait of her. The final piece of art included bold lipstick — similar to what a clown would have, defined eyelashes, and hollow eyebrows.
Ekstrand mentioned that she had kept the drawing over her makeup vanity for the past 12 years, admiring it almost every day. She said that she admired it not only because it’s something her daughter made for her, but also because it reminded her (aggressively) to put on lipstick.
Recreating the Look Using Makeup
She had recently made some home improvements and repainted her house, which meant that she had to take the artwork down. However, as she was hanging it back up, she thought that it would be hilarious to recreate the look after all those years.
Using her makeup, she painted on the exact features from the drawing on her face. Once she was done, Denise snapped a selfie holding up the artwork next to her face to compare the two.
Thinking that other moms would also find it funny, she posted it to Reddit. There, she mentioned that she thought she still looked the same after all this time.
Her daughter, who is now 19 years old and in college, thought the recreation was hilarious.
