In Victoria's video, David Beckham's not-so-little-anymore girl shows observers how she does her eyebrows. Utilizing makeup products from her mom's Victoria Beckham Beauty line, Harper, who left her blonde hair in loose waves framing her face, proceeds to use the FeatherFix eyebrow brush on her brows.

After doing one of her eyebrows, Harper then positions her face closer to the camera, giving viewers an up-close look at the finished result. She also uses her index finger to point individually to her brows, showing the difference between when she uses the FeatherFix versus when she doesn't.

Further promoting her mom's makeup brand, Harper also gets a shot of her holding six FeatherFix products in her hand as she waves them in the direction of the camera. Captioning her beloved daughter's makeup tip tutorial, Victoria penned, "Someone stole my @VictoriaBeckhamBeauty FeatherFix! 😘 Kisses #HarperSeven xxx."

Victoria's followers quickly took to the comment section of the post to express how they felt about the video. Shocked by both Harper's maturity and beauty, one fan wrote, "Did I miss something, like how is this Harper??? When did this happen???? She's gorgeous, and grown😍😍😍😍😍😍😍."

"She's a big girl now," echoed another. Jumping in on the surprised bandwagon, someone else reiterated, "Is that Harper? Wow she has [...] grown up [so much]. Stunning girl 🔥🙌❤️❤️❤️" "Omg I didn't recognise her she's grown up all of a sudden into a beautiful young lady," another admirer chimed in.

Even Harper's big brother, Cruz Beckham, had to give the young lady props. His comment reads, "I have the coolest sister ever 🤩." Although the majority of people are in support of the video, there are a few who think Harper may be a little too young to use makeup.

"Isn't she like only 13???? Maybe a little too young for makeup," expressed a social media user. Similarly, another simply pondered, "13 years old???"

While the aforementioned comments mistakenly assert that Harper is 13, the general sentiment about her embodying maturity at such a young age has been echoed by her dad. In a post he shared on April 12, the doting father reflected on how much his precious girl has grown.

David Beckham posted a heartwarming father-daughter photo on his Instagram account where the two posed together at an event. While David protectively wrapped his arm around Harper, the soon-to-be 13-year-old leaned her head against his as they both smiled for the camera.

"My little girl is growing up [...] MY boys get ready@brooklynpeltzbeckham @romeobeckham @cruzbeckham 🥊 @victoriabeckham good job mama 🤍," captioned the protective patriarch.

In July, David's little girl will be 13 years old, and based on how she celebrated her birthday last year, her 13th birthday will probably be one for the books.

Birthdays appear to be a particularly special event for the Beckham family, like when the matriarch turned 50 earlier this year (2024). The entire family celebrated in style and Victoria's birthday bash was extravagant, chic, and tasteful.

Although Victoria's birthday celebration saw many stars wear fabulous outfits, Harper stole the show with her ensemble. Though some praised Harper, calling her "pretty," most felt that her dress was not appropriate for her age.

"She is a pretty girl, but in my opinion and people may think I am old fashioned, but I think the outfit is too old for her," remarked a social media user. In response, another said, "Most of her outfits are meant for an adult."

Someone else asserted, "I think it's a shame Harper was not wearing an age appropriate outfit including shoes. Harper is growing and soon will be taller than her mother."

Another person who weighed in on the debate wrote, "Seriously bad dress choices. Harper's is an odd choice for a 12 year old, she's having to bunch it into creases to avoid it being too revealing in the pictures…"

Similarly, another user commented, "She's 12…she should be allowed to continue her childhood, not have her dress up in one of her mother's cast off’s."

Amid the vitriol, however, were people who came to Harper's defense and showered her with compliments. "She is dressed appropriately. It's a formal occasion and even her shoes are age appropriate," rebutted a fan.

While the Beckham men were all dressed in dapper suits with bowties, Victoria and her daughter adorned classy floor-length garments. The mom of four donned a semi-sheer turquoise dress, accentuated by ruffles, and Harper opted for a satin white one.

Alongside one of her own posts of her special day, Victoria included a caption that reads, "Can't wait to celebrate with my friends and family! I love you all so much."

Celebrating with her friends and family is just what the businesswoman did. In addition to taking pictures with her family, another post shows Victoria posing with close friends, Eva Longoria, David and Isabela Grutman, and others.

Referencing Victoria, Harper, and their entire family, another fan swooned, "Victoria's dress is so romantically beautiful and Harper is so pretty and proper. The whole Beckham family is such a class act! 😍."

Victoria's "romantically beautiful" dress is a garment she designed herself as part of her Spring Summer 2024 collection. Before she wore it for her birthday, Victoria's daughter-in-law, Nicola Peltz Beckham, was seen wearing the dress during a pre-show fitting in Paris.
