US mum says son is her biggest hype man as he always praises her elaborate make-up designs

A mum says son, six, is her biggest hype man as he's always praising her elaborate make-up designs - and recorded his cute compliments

Bee Mellifera, 25, decided to start documenting her son's sweet reactions after he complimented her make-up when being picked up from school.

Her little boy, Cobain, six, tell his mum that he 'loves' her make-up and thinks it looks "cute".

Bee - who works as a freelance copywriter and lives in Austin, Texas, US - sometimes spends up to an hour on her colourful looks and says it makes her feel "really nice" when Cobain takes an interest.

Bee and her son are both autistic and they both have their own special interests - hers is make-up and Cobain is keen on gaming and programming.

"He's complimented my makeup for as long as I can remember," Bee said.

"He always says the make-up is cute and he loves it.

"When I'd pick him up with it on, he would always start saying he loved them and asking how I did it.

"One day I asked if him could record it and he said yeah.

"It’s so nice that he takes in interest in it

"Make-up is my special interest as an autistic person.

"He knows that, so it does feel good that he's engaging with my special interest, as I do for him.

"It feels important to have that with him."

Bee uploaded the adorable videos to TikTok, which have racked up over two million views combined.

She also uses her TikTok to livestream her make-up looks which can sometimes take more than an hour to complete.

She said: "I decided to upload his reactions to TikTok as I thought maybe other people would find it as cute as I did."
