How will you answer this question if your DD asks you?

See, I wear it every day. My daughter is 4 and asked me this question this morning.

Right, but why? My DD asked me that this morning. Thought it was the perfect question to pose to this long-silent group.

Hmm I would probably tell her that it makes mommy feel pretty when she wears it.

My girls are 7 & 4 years old and they've watched me put make up a million times. If they ever ask why I do it, I'd probably just say because it makes me feel prettier.  Or maybe just because I like to change up my look and I can do that with make up.

Exactly what I told my daughters :) and the same thing I told my aunt and uncle to convince them to let my 16 year old cousin wear makeup. (They thought it was tho impress men, therefore refused to let her wear it... till I talked to them).

I was asked this same question by SS.  when he was about 4 I wear make-up everyday- Dark puffy eye cirlcles, usually trying to cover up some acne redness, & Burts Bees shimmer lipgloss. I said the same thing....I just said I thought it was fun and I liked it...............................Then he told me it was ugly, lmao. No lie. The joys of being SM : ))
