  • lip gloss and and a small amount of eye shadow when they start wanting to. Nothing else until she is 13 maybe even 15.

  • Mine will have to be at least 13 before she's allowed to wear any makeup.

  • It just really depends on her age.I'd let her wear cover-up if/when she has acne. But I think that chapstick or lip gloss is fine for ages 9 - 12. I think that she shouldn't over wear make up either. At sleepovers, i'd get her make up for make overs. :) I hope this helped.

  • I buy kids make up for my 5 year old and if there is any i have that I nolonger use I let her have it to play with as the only things I will not let her have are the liquid cover up, mascara, eye linner, things like that, but I do give her things like my old powder cover ups, blushes, lip gloss or lip sticks, and eye shadows I even give them to my 2 year old sometimes lol. But I will not let my DD wear it out anywhere.

  • I'll let her start wearing lip gloss and mascara whenever she wants to. But nothing beyond that til she starts middle school...

  • i started wearing makeup when i was 5 !! lol. whenever my mom used to get busy with some household work , i used to run straight to her room and in her dresser !! well, jokes apart, i think an appropriate for a girl to start wearing makeup is 15-16 years. but i see girls these days who start waring it sooner..
