When will you allow your daughter to wear make up?

Posted by   + Show Post

Is there an age when you will allow it or will it be more about their attitude and how mature they are?

Maybe when she's 13 she could wear a pale pink eyeshadow or something subtle if she wanted.

My daughter is 12 and I have told her she is allowed to wear make-up at any time as long as she does it appropriately and without a heavy hand.  However, since she has frequently performed on stage as a dancer, she really doesn't care to wear it and only does it when it is needed.

 I've already let dd wear some clear lipgloss on special occasions (church on Christmas/Easter), and nail polish sometimes. Anything more than that will have to wait until she's about 12.

My daughter was allowed to wear make-up to school in mkiddle school and now has stopped all together in high school. It just takes too much time.

highschool, unless she has bad acne, earlier, and then i would get her oil free fondation, there was a girl in my class at it bad and didnt use fondation and got picked on a lot, use to tick me off when people would pick on her.

 She's 12, in 7th grade, and we've let her wear makeup when she's been in weddings, and she sometimes wears lipgloss and a little mascara to school. She has friends that wear more, but she says she likes "the natural look". Really I think she believes it's too much trouble. lol

It will depend on her attitude and maturity level. And why she wants to wear makeup. Whether it is for her or because her friends are wearing it or if she wants to impress a boy.... All of these things will play into our decision

I'm not sure yet, she's 6 so I still have a while to decide

A little bit around 13, then 16. I had bad skin as a teen so I wore foundation and concealer at 14... So I guess what exactly she can wear will depend.
