to wear make ups? This may sound funny but I don't really feel comfortable to see high school girls wearing make ups everytime other than the normal face powders. Any idea?

I suppose this question will reflect on where you live, but in the UK and in the South West where I live it's unusual to see a high school girl NOT wearing makeup nowadays. Thinking about it even when I was at school I went with at least eye make up on from the age of about 12 years old and I think my daughter did the same. Although it's quite the norm where we live but I do think 12 is about the age limit, I don't like to see any child younger than this without any on

I find that a lot of teens even when I was one, had a habit of wearing a LOT Of makeup probably just due to ignorance & the "want" to look grown up! If I had a kid, I would just show her how to correctly apply the makeup because looking like you are going to be a star at the opera--isn't that great a look. Overall, I have no issue with girls even as young as 13 wearing it, however they really shouldn't be over applying it. Maybe just some lipgloss & a bit of mascara.

nowadays, you can't avoid girls not to wear make ups due to the fashion trends.everything that is in today are followed by young ones.for me, if i have daughter it i will allow her to use make ups at age 20 if she is mature enough to herself..or else depends to her.

I was allowed to wear powder and mascara at 15. So that is what I will allow my daugher to do. After that she will be able to wear whatever makes her look like a young woman and not a street walker. I am going to show her what is lady like and what looks tacky and what message she is sneding out to people by the way she dresses and carries herself. I want her to have her own identity, and I will be the best guide possible.
