I am not really a makeup girl. i recently started wearing just a little foundation. but my 3 year old loves make up. i mean she loves all of it. she loves to come with me to get her nails done. She just got a 30 piece makeup kit for little girls and she is doing everyone nails and we are all walking around here looking like a clown. Even her father and brothers. . so how old were you when you started wearing make up?

Hi There! I didn't start wearing makeup until I was around 16. My mother wouldn't let me wear it before then. That was the age I started letting my daughter wear it also. Take care and have a great evening!!!

i am not really a make up person and i only started wearing make up when i am about 16 i think... even then, it is only powder and lipstick... that's all... i don't like make up at all... even until now, i still don't wear any when i go to work except for the lipstick... otherwise, my lips will look so pale... that is so cute of your daughter to do that... and to her fathers and brothers as well... :-) i think she will grow up to become a make up artist... take care and have a nice day...

Like your daughter I played with it when I was little. I dabbled with it a little when I was 13, that Summer my mom enrolled me in a make up class, so I could learn how to do it right, by 14 I was wearing makeup.

My parents never set an age limit with me. However, I was never interested in wearing it, and the only times I can remember wearing it as a child were with Halloween costumes and dance performances. Even now, other than for dance performances I do not wear any make-up other than concealer. I would say the youngest I can remember wearing it was probably seven years old or so. But again, this was only on special occasions. I had no interest in it unless I was dressed up for something.

I started to wear makeup when I was sixteen. That's the time when I had a holiday job, bought it with my first pay.

That's true, I was taught to pay for what I wanted. Save pocket money to buy whatever things I wanted when I was very young so now I'm teaching my kids to save and pay for what they wish for.

a little liner goes a long way. if done right it can give you a great eye! i use to love eye liner as a teen.

I started wearing makeup when I was about 12 or 13. It was about the time I started junior high, but I was only allowed to wear lipstick. This is going back about 40 years ago in the 1960's when white (or practically white) lipstick was the rage. I can still remember going with my mother to a cosmetics counter and being given a choice between two light pink lipsticks -- one that was so light to be almost white and one that was a more normal light pink. I bet you can tell which one I chose -- the one that was almost white. (I was wearing it in my 7th grade school picture.) After that I was allowed to add more makeup products gradually. I think the next step was mascara and then I moved into powder and blush as well as eyeshadow. Your little girl sounds adorable and it also sounds like she is having a lot of fun. Enjoy her while she is little and you and she can just have fun with her makeup.

Aww. That's adorable! I think that it's so bold of the men to let her do that. Haha. Especially her brother, now that's manly. When I was 12, I first tried eyeliner and lipstick. Haha. After that, I started to get used to the eyeliner and I guess my make-up obsession grew after that. I can't see myself without make-up for all these years. Haha. ^^;

OK! I have a confession. My daughter is a beautyqueen too. She doesn't do pagents, but she is a real beauty diva and loves having her nails done. She loves lipgloss and girl lipsticks. She goes crazy over bottles of lotion and face cream. She's her mama's daughter! That's for sure. I thought mine was the only one who did that. How cute! I didn't start wearing makeup until I was 12 years old or so. I had to buy my own, though.

I started wearing makeup when I was in first year college, but I just wore some loose powder and some blush. When I started working, I began reading some beauty blogs and forums. I began collecting makeup.. I got hooked..

i think i started using make up and lipstick when i was at my first year in high school. I just place a little amount on my face because i was afraid my parents would notice. Besides i lived in a rural area so make up or lipstick were not worn daily. But things have changed now. Even kids below 5 love to wear make ups. My niece for one, who is only 3 years old likes putting lipstick on her lips and some blush on.

If I remember right I was about 15 when I started wearing makeup. I didn't wear alot of it. I remember the first time I put on eyeshadow I had on so much I looked like a circus freak! It took some practice to make it look right.

I started wearing make up when I was 14 although my mom didnt know until I was 16. I started wearing lipstick and eye shadow and later on started wearing foundation, eyeliner and mascara. Nowdays I never go anywhere without a lipstick and some eyeliner. I'll bet your daughter looks real cute with all of her make up on! Tianna

I have never really started wearing makeup. I did wear a little bit of mascara when I was 13 years old. My sisters pushed me to do that though. I don't like wearing makeup myself. I don't think it looks good on me at all. I think it makes me look like a clown, LOL. I like my regualr complexion of skin on my face.
