my niece got a play makeup when she was 4, actually she got a lot of makeup for that birthday. I know it's play makeup, but she was 4!
both me and her mommy were looking at each other like 'now what?' when she opened it because we both thought she was too young.
One day mommy told her she could wear some of it to church, she wanted to wear the blush too, but mommy said no. Just some lip stuff. Mommy found her under the table hiding while putting on the blush. Niece started bawling when she got caught, going on that she wasn't going to be beautiful without it.
She asked me what I thought, and I told her that maybe the best thing to do is take the makeup away until she got a little older, that's pretty much what happened for a while.
The idea of a 4 year old thinking that she wouldn't be beautiful without makeup scared me!
she got the makeup later, but I think that her young guy friends like putting it on her more than she likes playing with it. A couple of them are brothers and they do things like each make up a side of her face, or each paint her nails on one hand. then they fight like crazy over who did the better job!
