At what age should girls start wearing make up?

My SD will be 12 in a month. I think she is too young to where eye liner and full make-up. And I mean all the time, including school.

  • I'm a professional makeup artist and we offer parties to teen and pre-teen girls where we educated them on how to wear makeup appropriately for their age. I've done parties for 12 year olds before and teach them it's about enhacing, not over doing. However, the most common age for the parties is 14.
