at what age would you allow your child to wear make-up?

even when there are shows or performances to be in, i wouldn't want to see any child wearing make-up. children are beautiful without the watercolors on their faces because their innocence makes them glow, anyway. some kids wear make-up as early as 12 --- would you think this age to be reasonable? i wouldn't. maybe just a little gloss to prevent lip dryness, but none of the hard stuff yet.

Sometimes a girl needs to feel important and pretty, the news media tells them that every time they look at a magazine or watch comercials on t.v. When they learn to love who they are,they will feel O.K. and won't feel the need for a lot of make-up.We need to make them feel special .

I told my teen that she cannot wear make-up until she was 17.By that time she should have job and be able to pay for it herself.

wearing make-up is not a bad thing, really, but personally i wouldn't want to see kids at such an early age already wearing blush-ons and eye liners.

If i vill have a daughter i vill never allow her to put make up and spoil her beautiful face which god has given her. I just cant see girls with make up on their face. If its only lipstick then its fine but i hate when they do all other crappy things to their face.

Mine still don't wear make-up to this day besides a little mascara and maybe some tinted lip gloss, they have beautiful skin already. By the way these are children in their twenties, and we (dad and I) didn't allow make-up, for what? To enhance what, for who and why?

Thats sound true to me...my wie always wants a girl so she can "decorate" her by beautiful dress,make up and all those which will make her baby girl pretty and sometimes I will jus ask the same questions as yours to her:)
