She asked me for some make up!

14yo DD asked me if I would put some make up on her this evening.

My rule was always no make up until she was 14 & I taught her how to put it on so she didn't look like a clown. Well tonight she had 3 small bumps on her cheekbone (almost like bug bites) that were red & she wanted them covered. 

I knew this day would come. And thankfully she only asked for foundation & powder. I offered to do eyeliner but she insisted she was fine. 

I use the trublend from CoverGirl & she has the same complexion I do so it wasn't too obvious that she was wearing make up.

That's nice. My dd is 11 and plays with make up sometimes, but never leaves the house with it.

Oh I am so not looking forward to those days. They grow up way too quickly!

My ex & I agreed when the girls were babies to allow lipgloss at 12 & make up at 14. So far I have been lucky & neither one really care. But the older had those bumps & was embarrassed. They weren't like pimples which she is okay with. 

But I agree they do grow up too fast. Older DD is already in a bigger bra than I am! Younger DD is asking when she will get boobs because ODD got them when she was 11 & YDD is 12.

My daughter is 11.  She plays with eyeshadow and mascara all the time.  I don't see the harm in it.  She actually does a pretty good job, and it is never garish.  Of course, I prefer her au natural, but when she asks to wear makeup to school, or what not, I'm going to allow it.  I'd rather know what she is doing and keep it simple. I remember putting on makeup every morning as I walked to school, and wiping it off on the way home.  My mom had a strict 16 rule.

Mine either. Nor did she give me the birds & the bees talk! Everything I know I learned from school & personal experience. Then she had the nerve to ask me (when I got pregnant with #3-#5) "Don't you know what causes that?" Haha

I think those are really good ages. Its awesome that your girls weren't in a rush to wear makeup. I hope I get that lucky.

She is growing up. It's nice that's all she wanted I think.
