"Mommy, why do you wear makeup?"

How would you answer this question if your daughter asked you?

Mine did yesterday. I told her that I don't need to wear it, but it makes me look more dressed up for work. Not sure I'm happy with my answer. I wear minimal makeup: mascara, a little shadow, sheer foundation and lip gloss.

I would say "I wear it when I want to look extra special."

I would just say it's because I like wearing it and it makes me feel good about myself.

That is what I told Ophelia (age 7) when she asked, too. I enjoy wearing makeup.

LOL My DD has been feeling that she is pretty since she was little! Its ok we've been building her confidence since she was knee high to a grasshopper! I don't wang her to suffer from lack of self-confidence like I did! She still moments but its natural.

I don't need to wear makeup to look or feel beautiful/pretty, but from time to time I like putting on makeup to look even nicer - like when we put on nice clothes, or wear jewellery or have pretty shoes.

I have never thought of this my daughter will be 7 tomorrow and she has never asked. I don't wear tons of makeup....very little and it is a natural color so you can't really tell I am wearing it too much.

I'd say it's like an accessory for me, and that sometimes I like to finish my look with some makeup that helps to bring out what I'm wearing, or bring out how I want to express myself to the world that day.  No different from jewelry or a purse or nice shoes ;-)

My sons asked me why I wear make-up when I'm pretty without it.  I told them I use make-up to make my pretty features stand out so they can be seen better.  I used my mascara as an example...my lashes are already long, but it's easier to see how long they are when I put mascara on them.  I don't wear much make-up either and my goal with make-up is always to enhance what I have, not to create a new face.
