  • I know I wore it at 14 ... I'll probably teach my daughter how to wear it at 14 if she wants to

  • My daughter is almost 14 and she is allowed to wear eyeliner and mascara and lip gloss. You just have to watch that she wears it in moderation, at my daughter's school girls wear like a pound of mascara, the thicker the eyelashes the better for them, that is the only thing that bothers me. But I think 13 and on is a good age.

  • its up to you. if you feel comfortable with her wearing it then go ahead! My mom had strick rules. We were allowed to get our ears peirced at 12, lipstick at 13, eyeshadow at 14, so on. Just show her how to use it without it taking over! Gl

  • If she wants to wear it, she's going to wear it whether you say yes or not. You can help her pick a good shade. My niece is blond and blue eyed and she wears black eyeliner. It looks so bad and harsh. It would be fine if she wore a softer shade. I think 14 is fine. All her friends probably do.

  • I was allowed to wear make up at 14. Just as long as I didn't put too much on.

  • I love eyeliner, it's my most important makeup. I think 14 is okay. I'd go more by grade, i don't think you should wear make-up in elementary school.

  • I truly hope that I am able to impart my daughter with self love, respect, and that she will not feel the need to alter her appearance to appeal to people.
