A grandmother was forced to apologize to her granddaughter’s school after taking a permanent marker over her face and drawing “Groucho Marx” on her eyebrows.

Louisa Jackson, 59, of Bexley, Kent, arranged to take Phoebe Jackson, six, to school on Monday as a favor for her daughter Amy, 30.

The grandmother of four sent the little one upstairs to brush her teeth before the 15-minute walk, but when she got down she was sporting a pair of giant Sharpie eyebrows.

Louisa spent 10 minutes trying to rub them with a face wipe before tackling the rest with baby oil and cotton wool.

Despite her best efforts, Phoebe still had a “dirty” spot on her face, so Louisa was forced to write a note explaining what had happened.

She vowed to keep the permanent markers hidden for the future – after Phoebe once painted herself red in an attempt to look like the crab from The Little Mermaid.

Louisa said: “When I looked at her, I just thought she looked like Groucho Marx.

“I thought it was Amy’s mascara initially, which is easy to remove. So I just got some baby wipes and wiped them off and nothing happened.

“I said to Phoebe, ‘Why did you put your makeup on mom? And she said “it’s not, it’s a pen”. I realized it was a permanent marker as it didn’t move.

“She loves makeup and obviously just decided she wanted eyebrows that day.”

After running against the clock to get the pen and Phoebe out of class on time, Louisa also quickly wrote up an explanatory note for her teacher and handed it over.

Louisa said, “Phoebe must have gone to school with a stain on her face, so I put a note in her binder.

I wrote, “I’m sorry if Phoebe’s face looks a little dirty, but she drew some eyebrows with a permanent marker and I did my best to take it off. We’ll definitely make sure that. permanent markers are out of range in the future. ”

“As she gets older she can achieve more things and you don’t realize what she can achieve until something like this happens.”

Louisa spent ten minutes trying to rub Phoebe's eyebrows, which she says

Louisa spent ten minutes trying to rub the eyebrows of Phoebe, who she said “loves makeup”, but it still left a stain.

But this isn’t the first time that Phoebe has gotten creative with her coloring, having covered herself in red felt three years ago in an effort to transform into Sebastian from The Little Mermaid.

Louisa said: “She said ‘look I’m a crab’ it happened in the tub because it was a regular children’s felt tip pen.”

Sharing her status as a permanent marker on Facebook, Louisa wrote, “Grandma fails! ‘My only mission was [to] make her stay overnight, get her to school on time on Monday morning.

‘Mission over but I haven’t told mum yet I sent her to brush her teeth and she went downstairs [with] eyebrow permanent markers.

“I got most of it out with wipes and baby oil, but had to put a note for the teacher in her binder because she still looks a bit like Groucho Marx.”

Social media users were tickled by the image and joked that they had seen eyebrows like this on women in the evening.

One of them joked, “To be honest, I’ve seen real adults draw their eyebrows like that and go out on a Saturday night.”

Another wrote: “Better than some of the eyebrows I see today.”
