my daughter is only 8 and she loves putting on makeup. i dont have a make up kit at home and i dont even wear some. her aunts and uncles supplies them to her because they know she simply loves it.

First, why do you want your daughter to stop putting on makeup? Why do you think that it is so wrong? In fact it can be good for her, since at the age of 18 she'll know a lot about makeup and how to apply it correctly to her face. Second, if you still want to stop her from that, try to convince her, that a good lady just don't wear makeup at that age and bring some examples (people she likes, know and adores, maybe some celebrities).

You know, don't make it out to be a bad thing with the make-up! How about compromising? My 10 yr, 7 yr & 4 yr old all wear make-up! We compromised...they can wear it in the house but can not wear it to school or anywhere else until they are age apropriate!

have you asked them to stop giving her makeup. then tell your daughter to say no thank you when they offer her some makeup. and if she comes home with makeup to give it to you and not put it on. if she puts it on give her a consiquence.
