Do you think it's harmful to a little girl's self-esteem to let her play with makeup?


I have a 6 year old niece who loves to play with makeup. This is fine, most people don't think anything of it. Her playing with makeup is harmless; it's like dressing up, but I've noticed that people always say things like "Oooh, how beautiful!" when she shows them her finished makeup. Does this give her the idea that she's only beautiful when she puts on makeup?
