Make-up tutorials are all the rage on the internet. But one girl has sparked an outrage with her online lessons about how to apply lipstick and foundation – because she's just FIVE years old.

In the clips, Danna Gomez, a Colombian primary schoolgirl, showed followers how to give themselves a makeover.

The videos, spoken in her native Spanish, were uploaded online by her aunt Denisse Gomez, where they quickly went viral via social media.

In the video, the little girl is shown expertly applying foundation, eye shadow, eye liner, mascara and pink lipstick with advice on how best to apply them.

Proud aunt Denisse said: "Danna loves showing off and enjoys being on the camera, and as long as she's having fun and doing it on her own initiative then what is wrong with it?

"Children have always played adult games like pretending to be doctors and nurses, or mummies and daddies, or even fireman or cowboys, so what is wrong with imitating an adult in playing around with make up?"

Danna's videos have notched up millions of views, but her audience is divided in its response.

Some say her performance is cute, but others have branded the videos disturbing.

Online user Miguel said: "Why can't we let our children be children, why do we have to rush them into being adults before they are ready?"
