MY 4YO BEAUTY PAGEANT DAUGHTER WEARS FAKE TAN AND LIPSTICK - AND STRANGERS THINK I'M TARTING HER UP

Growing up, Jasmine Price, now four, loved watching her older sister, Mia Price, now 10, compete in beauty pageants. At the tender age of one, Jasmine became obsessed with hair and make-up. The following year, she begged her mum, Samantha Price, now 32, from South Wales, to let her compete in pageants like her sister. Samantha eventually gave in and entered Jasmine in her first competition when she was two. Now, Jasmine has been competing for two years and loves to wear fake tan and lipstick for her shows. As a result, Samantha claims strangers have accused her of 'tarting' up her daughter.
