I recently came across a discussion that got pretty heated over whether little girls should wear makeup or not. I would love to hear your thoughts (be opinionated but not nasty please).
My 5-year-old has lip gloss and pretend makeup she likes to “play” with. There has been times when she has dressed up for an event as a princess etc and I have allowed her to wear makeup (pink lips, blush).
My belief (for my daughter) is this: As long as she knows that she doesn’t need the makeup to look beautiful and that it is something that is only required for special occasions then I am happy. I do however draw the line at blue eye shadow, eye liner, cat eyes, smoky eyes, red lipstick and anything else that does not look natural.
Wearing makeup for dancing competitions, pageants and even modeling. Is this acceptable?
Wearing makeup for pretend play around the house for dress up. Is this acceptable?
Wearing makeup to look pretty before going out to dinner or a party. Is this acceptable?
