I just want to know what you guys think is appropriate, my mom is letting me wear it on speical occasions, but I want to know what is and what is not appropriate for a girl my age. I am still young, so I think foundation is out of the question. What is your opinion?
Okay thanks! All I have is mascara, so I wanted to know what would be appropriate because I didn't want to overdo anything. I now realize that I don't need to wear any makeup! Thanks! :)
It's different for every girl. I don't wear makeup but my mom actually WANTS me too (and no she's not one of those pageant moms or anything). My mom offered to let me wear makeup when I was 11 actually lol. I guess it's your mother knows best. Obviously it's your face and your body though so if you don't feel comfortable wearing it or don't want to that's completely fine.
I think lipgloss and marcara is enough. Personally, I started wearing foundation at 15, and I made the mistake of wearing a heavy coverage powder foundation and it looked cakey on my face. So, when you decide to try foundation, go for a light coverage liquid one.
I let my 7 year old daughter wear makeup and take her to do her nails, but only eye-shadow and lipstick. I started wearing makeup when I was 12. I think 13 is appropriate. I don't see the problem with it. My mother told me once, if you're old enough to spend a week out of the month bleeding from your body, than you're old enough to wear makeup LOL. I really don't see what the big deal is.
I consider lip-balm and maybe mascara acceptable. I don't think you need it though, but that's just me.
At 13, I used to put some lipstick on and maybe some blusher if I had a fancy family dinner but that's it. I don't advise to put more makeup. At 13, your skin is still very pure and fragile so just take care of it the right way and enjoy it before it's not the same
