YouTuber Buys A Brand New £147,000 BMW For Her 12th Birthday

A YouTuber with more than 290,000 subscribers has celebrated her birthday by buying herself a lovely brand-new BMW car. What is interesting about that? She's just 12-years-old.

Yep, she won't be able to actually drive the thing for a few years yet, but Natthanan Sanunrat bought herself the new luxury car anyway.

Sanunrat became internet famous after she decided to nab her mother's make-up a while back and started making some internet tutorials about how to apply it.

Now, the youngster from Thailand has become well-known and wealthy enough to buy the car, which cost her about six million baht - that's around £147,000.

She showed off the new car to her subscribers in a video on the site that made her famous.

Speaking from inside her new toy - although she isn't allowed to actually play with it - she said: "I've been doing makeup every day since I was four years old, when I started to do makeup tutorials and post it on YouTube.

"I just felt like I enjoyed doing it and it became my dream to become a makeup artist.

"Every look I want to do, I just flow. Natural look, fancy look, special effects that I've learned from YouTube, I like to do, too.

"I went to London Fashion Week in April of 2018. My teacher gave me a really big opportunity to go there. I did the makeup for the models and for the kids, the young models, too.

"I want to be a makeup artist forever."

Despite getting the car for her birthday on April 8, she needs to hang on for another six years before she can get a license to drive it.

Until then, it's going to be her mum or dad who will be behind the wheel.

Natcha, her mum, said: "We encourage and support Natthanan with her work, but we don't push her at all. We don't need to, because she loves doing makeup so much and she's very mature and organised.

"We're very proud of her and we will drive the car for now, to take her to makeup events and fashion shows. I'm sure that the first car she drives herself will be a Porsche."

Well that sounds fair enough then. Her parents are obviously really happy with their young child's work, and as long as they're happy to do the actual driving, fair play to them.
