Nicole Richie says her 3-year-old daughter Harlow loves playing with her makeup.
“She’s still too young to understand fashion, but she loves to play with my makeup and tries on my lipstick,” she told People while attending an event at New York’s Bergdorf Goodman department store last night. “I just let her do it because it’s part of being a girl and part of experimenting. It’s all in good fun.”
The 29-year-old added, “She’s very good at it and very careful with it. She doesn’t go outside the lines – not even once. I am the opposite. I’m the girl who can’t wear red lipstick because I’ll forget about it and it ends up on the side of my face. She may have to start teaching me to be more careful.”
Richie, who also raises 1-year-old Sparrow with husband Joel Madden, is loving using her married name.
“I just went to Ireland, and it was really the first time I was called Mrs. Madden,” she says. “The people were asking me if my last name is Madden, and I was like, ‘Yeah, my last name is Madden now.’ And they were like, ‘You’re one of us!’ And I was like, “Oh, hell yeah I am.’ It’s awesome to be known as Mrs. Madden. It’s music to my ears.”
