When Is Your Daughter Too Young for Makeup?
I don’t have kids and I don’t have a ton of experience raising them, dealing with them daily, etc…I’m a big child myself so I can picture myself with a baby of my own, that would be absolute chaos. Their father could sell tickets to the event like it was the circus because hells you know me raising a child would be entertainment at its best.
I don’t claim to know the proper age for makeup and I’m pretty liberal in all my views of life….but maybe…kinda, sorta..four years old might be too young for makeup.
Lindsay Cross wrote an article about how she applies makeup on her four year old daughter for special events and it went viral pretty damn fast. And you know what happens once things go viral, Lindsay started feeling the old Internet backlash….
When is your daughter too young for makeup?
Lindsay points out in her article that she’s let her daughter, …”walk into Church on Easter with sparkling light pink eye shadow, pale pink cheeks and MAC lip gloss…”
One side of me dubs this “awww how cute!” and the other makes me wonder if her daughter may be a little too young to be wearing MAC Lipglass already.
Everyone of course has an opinion mine is somewhat mixed up at the moment.
In some ways I understand a young girl’s curiosity with makeup and pretty things and I also must remind myself this is a REALLY new generation of anything goes. But the very little bit of conservative I have lurking in me says, no, makeup on a four year old is just too much.
What do you think?
Do you have a daughter?
What age is ok for her to start enjoying makeup?
