Ask the Moms: How old should a girl be before she wears makeup?

Ask the Moms: How old should a girl be before she wears makeup?

The question of when is it appropriate to wear makeup comes up eventually for nearly all moms of daughters.

Here is the situation as explained by one Central Valley mom:

"My 13-year-old step-daughter came home and had so much make up on she did not look like herself! She looked more like an eqyptian princess with all that eyeliner! I don't mind if girls start wearing a little makeup to start with.  Maybe a little eye shadow and a brown/soft black mascara and lipgloss, but when I see these early teen girls wearing dark eyeliner, mascara and heavy eye shadow while at the mall I think its a bit much.  Just gives the wrong impression of wanting to grow up too fast in MHO.  When I was younger, I didn't even start considering wearing make up till I was 16.  I was too busy outside being a kid playing ball, running around and being goofy."
