8-year-old boy named Ethan Wilwert wants to become a professional makeup artist. His mom, Season, supports him fully, so she gave him a makeup lesson with Emmy-nominated hair stylist and make-up artist Joey Killmeyer.

Killmeyer did one side of Ethan’s face and the boy did the other. “I don’t remember the last time I saw Ethan so happy or so confident in himself,” said Season. “Other shoppers in the store even requested that Ethan do their makeup.

“This does not define his gender identity nor his sexual preference,” the mom added. “He’s just exploring and being a kid! We as parents should be our child’s biggest cheerleader.”
