My daughter is 6 years old and she just said she wants make up from Santa this year. Do you think this is too young for makeup? Not for everyday use btw.

Yes. Other than lip gloss, though. I wasn't allowed to wear make up ANYWHERE until I was 10 (which is still too young IMO). Just have to be careful about it. She may be expecting to be able to wear it out in public eventually. Get her a lip gloss kit (has like several colors/flavors bunched together) and some other stuff, like soaps and lotions.

I think if they are just playing and not going out side I dont see a problem with it. My daughter is 1 and a half and occasionally when i am getting ready for work i will put eye shadow on her. It is so light you have to really look at her to notice and usually pink or silver.

they have childrens make up she could play with and when you are able to you could also just play dress up with maybe some of your blush and maybe powder my daughter is three and even if I use a diff brush and pretend she is getting it, it she always says thanks mommy Im pretty lol she they just love copying what moms do

Thanks. Really helpful. I think I can get her a nail polish kit for kids and maybe a little make up. Cute lip gloss is a great idea. She keep stealing my lipstick to put in her "handbag". She still a kid though call high heels "Clippety Clops". Thanks for the great ideas.

I think if it is just play make up, for playing dress up at home, there is no harm in it. Some days my daughter (who is 6) looks like a drag queen the way she makes up her face with her play Barbie make up. As long as it is washed off before we go out, I really don't care. Some days, when I go out and am doing my make up, she will ask for some, and as long as she isn't leaving the house I will allow her to have a little bit on, just for fun.
However, if your daughter is wanting REAL make up for using to wear out, then I'd say no, she is way too young for this.
