Sophie, who has already won 22 beauty pageant titles, wants to be a singer and actress and thinks having these “enhancements” will help her. Watson’s mother, who is a beauty therapist, says she sees no problem with the procedures. She told Closer magazine, “I wasn’t overly worried and, once she’s got an idea in her head, there’s no stopping her.”
Really? Um, lady… yes you can stop her! She’s 14 and you are her mother. The procedures require parental consent for those under 18 years old, which you readily gave. Try being her mother not her friend!
What kind of message does it send a 14-year-old girl if her mother agrees that a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure is needed to look “beautiful”? And we are not talking about one thing here… little Sophie had eyeliner, lip liner, a fake beauty mark, and her eyebrows tattooed with makeup.
Let’s also not forget the positive reinforcement of the idea that one should suffer for beauty. Sophie told the magazine that the eyeliner was the worst part. “I started crying because the thought of a needle being that close to my eye freaked me out.” I don’t know about you, but I see a big difference in tattooing make-up on your face and wearing a pair of uncomfortable heels in the name of beauty. This poor girl is going to need some serious counseling down the road…
