Mine would wear it for something special at 14
DD is just starting to really be interested. She asked for some because like me, she is really fair and has naturally dark circles under her eyes (thin skin, like me). Her first "real" dress up dance is this weekend, and two teenage girls are coming to help her with her make up. I barely wear any, so I thought a little extra help from some girly girls was in order!
Maybe when shes 15 or 16
My oldest SD started at 12 and nobody liked it, she was doing the whole smokey eyes thing and my hubby told her she looked like a racoon, she said her mother allowed it but I told her that she was wearing way too much makeup and that less is more, she understood what I was trying to say and she toned it down.
My second SD just turned 14 and she's not that interested in makeup, she would go for lip gloss but that's it and my youngest SD who's 11 loves makeup!! But she doesn't wear any yet, she's not allowed.
When she is in 8th grade or a freshman.
We will start with lip gloss and light eye liner.
when she is probably about 15
My oldest, now 16, started when she was 14. She used a lot and had to learn to tone it down. Now she knows that the less she uses and how to do the color schemes, she looks really pretty. It took some time for her to understand this, but she does now. Here is a pic of her. She's the one with the long hair.
