At what age would it be acceptable for your daughter to wear make-up?
I have noticed a lot of girls from the age of 10 are beginning to wear make-up and I personally feel there is no need for it.
A child of 10 years is only a child. Our children are growing too fast. In this case, wear make-up, never before 18 years old.
Like many family issues there are few magical answers that are the same for every question. Allowing your daughter to wear makeup is a decision that is best handled by you and your daughter. Your values will make a big difference.

I have successfully raised two girls who have their heads on straight. They were not allowed to wear makeup until they were 16. IMHO, there are only two circumstances where children younger than 16 should wear makeup -- if they're participating in a play or a dance recital.
Let's face it, women only wear makeup because of what other people think. Young children need to learn to be comfortable in their own skin and with who they are before they start worrying about what others think of them.
I believe around 13 years of age, with mascara only or lip gloss, I think that when they are a 'teenager" you want to help them understand the benefits of make up and how a little goes a long way. This is such a personal decision that I wish you the best of luck.
When the strap less gown stays up without strangling her, I guess!
I think 16 would be a good age...not too young. and at the same time, she is still under your supervision, so you can teach her the proper way to use beauty products. in any case I would hope that my daugther knows that she does not need make up. but I doubt any mother would be that lucky with a teenager. so you are right...there is no need for it, but I am sure she will not feel the same.
Good luck however.
Lip gloss or lip balm at any age, as it prevents chafing and moistens the lips. Some lip glosses also contain SPF sunblock.
A little powder never hurt anyone, especially if your preteen girl tends to have oily skin or is beginning to develop acne, at which time a bit of concealer would also be helpful.
A light hint of blush around 11-13 is very feminine and helps girls identify with their own gender. A little eyeliner for teens is very becoming and not at all trashy when done in moderation.
my mother didnt let me wear makeup in public until the 8th grade
all i wear in ete makeup(mascara shadow and liner) and lip gloss/color
i am in testing stage of cover up
but 10 years old NO WAY
If you want an age limit, I think 16 is good, but if you don't like it I think you can wait until 18 (or whenever she reaches the age of majority in the country you live).
Circa 20 years ago, I think most girls aged around 10-11 would ever think of wearing make-up.
Never it is against the 5 precepts for my daughter to wear makeup. She is on the Buddhist path and so for me there is no acceptable age. Besides that, who wants to paint their face like a clown anyway. Shouldn't we be teaching our daughters that they are perfect how God created them there is no need for any man made additions?
