good I am not the only one... my 12 yo (just turn 12 in april) ask me if she could wear make-up. I told her no. she can only wear lip-gloss and my mom look at me and said I llet you wear it younger than her and I was like yeah but I also had bad zits by the age of 12 .I told her we would talk about it more in a couple of years.

I think a good age is around 15 or 16

I only have boys, but I wouldn't want to see real make up on a girl much before 16 and maybe not even then.  I'm fine with pale shades of lipgloss at 12.

 15 or 16, I am so glad DD10 goes to a private school that does not allow make up until 6th grade and then allows only light nail polishes and lip glosses (no other makeup). So I wont have to fight this battle (at least for school) until she is a freshmen.

Mine started full makeup at 11, almost 12. She was starting 8th grade, and we felt she was old enough...If we waited until she was 16 she would be a senior in high school! LoL

I hate to see it on any girl in middle school.

When you say full makeup, are we talking natural looking or no?

yes I mean a natural look. I do not want my girls to look like are wearing makeup even when they are.

I will let her wear full make-up probably around 15 or 16. She is almost 8 and is allowed to wear colored glosses, but she usually rubs them of before 5mins is up. She may be able to wear light eye shadow at 12, but we'll see.
