I just want to know what everyone thinks because all the girls around me are from 13-18 years old and all of them wear makeup

I think you should use make up when you feel ready for it, not when girls around you use make up.
If you use make up early it's not bad. Go ahead and play with it. Check how you'll look depending on what you use. Have some fun with it and gain great experiences. In a private situation, there is hardly a minimum age.
What does matter is when you go out wearing make up in public. If you go out wearing make up too young, people will either make fun of you or think you're a slut. Same thing will happen if you overdo applying make up. It all depends on how you feel it's right. Let it depend on the situation. But when you go out shopping, doing the groceries, or whatever other daily stuff, there's no need for make up. Use make up when there's a need to enhance your facial features, which is not always when other people use make up but when you feel it's needed.
Right now I'm 27 and I still hardly use make up. First of all, I feel I don't need it. Also because whenever I do use make up, I often get too pale and need to compensate. As such I need to use so much make up I'm not comfortable with it. Also because I want to feel comfy and not feel the need of checking the mirror too often. So if I use make up it's usually only some mascara. These are the choices I make regarding the use of make up. What choices you make, is all up to you and should not be made to be part of a group.
And what I think about other girls? I think too many girls start way too young with make up.0
