And how much is an acceptable amount?
does the color of the lipstick matter?
Quoting my4boys2002:Maybe eyeliner and lipstick at 17
My daughters started in 7th grade. I showed them how to apply stuff, and also good skin care. It think that's a personal choice you make about your kid. Both my daughters wanted to wear heavy black liner... I decided that wasn't a battle really worth fighting. They both outgrew that, but had I made it an argument everyday, well, it was would have just been an argument about makeup every morning and there are way bigger issues at that age. I figure the point of makeup is experimenting with how you look anyway, so there was n reason to allow makeup all if I was going to be the dictator about it. Anyway, like I said I think it's a personal choice you make about your kid like what kinds of movies they can see, when they start dating, etc. There's no one right time or thing, it's between you and your child.
My daughter is turning 14 in a few weeks and I only let her wear mascara and a soft lip gloss, not to much color.
i wore eyeliner and clear fruit flavored gloss at 12 and 13, i was 15 when i was allowed to wear lipstick out of the house.
My daughter is turning 12 next month. We may start with the basics and light on whatever we go with it. I dont wear much makeup and never have.
middle school. I would suggest she use gloss instead of heavy lipstick....
