Speaking to ABC news, Aubrey's grandmother, Debbie Arnold, said her granddaughter likes to video herself, so when she asked for help setting up with tablet she didn't think anything of it.

"She watches lots of makeup tutorials online," said Arnold. "She'll do dances, she's videotaped herself being a school teacher, all kinds of imaginative things."

Arnold gave Aubrey a basket of old makeup and left her to make the tutorial.

"We didn't even think that scissors were there," she said. "We set her up in the kitchen and we were in the next room chatting, just figuring she was having a good time - and she was."

Although Aubrey's mother and grandmother were shocked, they said it's a lesson everyone learns at some point in the lives.

"Everybody's daughter has done that at some time," said Arnold.


The video has been viewed more than 18 million times.

As for Aubrey, her mum says: "She's mildly embarrassed but it's okay."

"She'll be crying one day when we show it to her first boyfriend though."
