Why do young girls ages 10-12 wear inappropriate clothing?

This is my mom's account and I asked her if I can ask something sorry if it's long. Why do most kids who are younger than I am or the same age wear so much makeup, high heels, have boyfriends and girlfriends, thongs, and all that? I can't even date until I'm probably 15, 16, or maybe even 18 so why do some young preteens make out and do things that parents don't allow them? I'm 12 and I even saw some 10 year olds who do stuff like that! I never thought of this topic until my mom pointed out that she knows 10 and 11 year olds do makeup. I'm actually only allowed to wear lip gloss, my mom doesn't care whether it is pink, red, no color or not as long as I do it properly and not use that much. I can wear at least a little eyeliner in parties, but I don't party so it's a nono for me too. They wear lots of eyeshadow big time and bright red lipstick, and some kids put eyeliner UNDER their eyelids. I see kids in my class wear clothes that only go up to their belly button and I'm the only girl in my class who wears clothes up to my waist besides my two other girl friends. Is that appropriate?
