Need help for 12 year olds makeup?

My 12 year old loves makeup and beauty e.g hair. This morning she straightened her hair multiple times and put on lip gloss and lots of mascara.
What do you think is the appropriate amount of time to do her beauty in the morning and what she should be allowed to put on and do with her hair??
Any answers appreciated!

I have never used a straightener but then I have straight hair as it is. At 12 I would say a bit of lipgloss is all that's "needed". You need to let her know that straightening her hair will harm it in the long run so it's best she only does it for special occasions until she's older.

The more gunk she puts on her face now the worse the teenage acne can be so try and deter her from using makeup. There is no need for her to be wearing it at all. I guess I only wear makeup when I work and hate wearing it even then so my daughter will not be allowed until she starts working or for a special occasion.
