It's a common sight at parties - someone has a little bit too much to drink, passes out and one of their pals draws all over their face.

Well, when her newborn baby recently fell asleep at a party, one mum decided to do the same thing.

Danielle McSherry-Schee from Fife in Scotland couldn't resist whipping out her make-up bag and using powder to put some dark eyebrows on six-week-old Isabella.

The 27-year-old stay at home mum shared a snap of the results on Facebook.

She joked that she was teaching her daughter a lesson for falling asleep while out, but later admitted she just really wanted to see what her fair child would look like with bold brows.

She said: "Isabella has really fair hair and basically no eyebrows - I have always wondered what she would look like with them.

"And one day a wave of inspiration came over me and I had to draw them on. I used my powder and just lightly drew on symmetrical eyebrows, a bit like mine.

"I couldn't stop laughing which woke Isabella up so I took a quick photo and wiped them off. My friends and I haven't stopped laughing. It is a photo I will keep forever and I might even put it on her 18th birthday cake."

But not everyone thought the photo was as funny as the mum did, with one person even commenting to accuse Danielle of "child abuse".

And while this made her feel like she had "done something wrong", she claims that she has no regrets and would do it again.

She added: "Some people commented saying it is 'child abuse' which made me feel like I had done something wrong.

"But I didn't put my baby in danger and the other mums in the Facebook group defended me. I would probably do it again because it is that funny."
