When is the right age to start wearing makeup?

What is the Appropriate Age to Wear Makeup?


From Womens Healthcare Topics

Do you remember dressing up in your mom’s high heels? Putting on her dress? How about wearing her red lipstick and blue eye shadow? We live in a society that influences little girls to grow up fast. For a young lady, wearing makeup is often seen as a rite of passage to becoming a woman. The question is: At what age is it appropriate to wear makeup? What is the appropriate amount of makeup and what colors are best?

There is no “right” age to start wearing makeup. Some girls begin wearing minimal makeup at age 11, such as lipstick or eye shadow. Parents of young girls display controversy on the issue. Some parents are more conservative in their views stating that kids do not get to be kids anymore. More and more young girls are being influenced by music and the media to look, dress and act a certain way. You can find just about any cosmetic product in glitter: nail polishes, lotions, lip gloss, eye makeup, and bikinis are targeting girls ages 6-12.

Some psychologist state that wearing makeup at an early age leads to increased interest from males. Some believe it is sending a message that says you are mature and possibly interested in being in a physical relationship. Makeup changes the perceptions of the face to be similar to that of a mature woman.

You may have heard the famous words, “Everyone’s wearing it in school,” and “It’s not fair.” It is important to question why she truly wants to wear makeup. If it is because everyone else is doing it or so guys will notice her, these are dangerous signals. How you feel about her wearing makeup sets a precedent for everything else she does. Allowing a young girl to wear makeup sooner than when you feel she is ready, may send the message that she can partake in other “adult-like” activities sooner than she is ready for them.

It is an inevitable fact that young girls are going to want to wear makeup at some point in their life. It is essential at the onset of wearing of makeup that clear boundaries are set on what types of makeup and the amount being worn is determined. How much makeup is too much? It is best when staring out, to keep the makeup subtle.
