How old were you when you began wearing makeup?
How young is to young to wear makeup outside of the house?
I started wearing "real" makeup when i was a freshmen in high school, and even then i didn't wear much. How old were you? This thought has been running through my mind for awhile. I have taken a notice of very young girls dressing way beyond their years.
I am the mother of a 2 1/2 year old daughter that is allowed to dress up in her plastic high heels and play with makeup. She has fun doing it, but she understands that it is playing dress up. Today while running errands i was at Target and as always i was in the beauty section and i could over hear a mother letting her daughter pick out fake press on nails for the first day of school..the little girl couldn't have been older than 7. My mother would have never let me wear fake nails at such a young age. But in this society it seems acceptable for a little girl to wear mini skirts, midriff bearing shirts, heels, and the list goes on.
It scares me about my little girl growing up and wanting to dress this way..which my husband has already said over his dead body will she be wearing makeup and mini skirts..lol I just think we should let them be little. If they start wearing makeup, heels, fake nails then they can't look forward to doing those things when they are older. Maybe i am just to conservative.
Do you have any opinions on this?
