Same here, I started wearing makeup when I was 13 too. While I do agree that 8 or 9 is too young to start wearing it, what I find more concerning is the fact that nowadays girls who are that age (or even younger) feel that they *need* to wear it. Scary.
I started wearing makeup when I was 12. I would wear a bit of powder and mascara. I think that some makeup in middle school is fine-- full makeup should be saved for high school though. I think that girls who are still in elementary school should slow down and wait it out a bit. I love makeup but sometimes little girls give the wrong impression when they start too early.
Way to young! I'm a huge supporter of makeup but believe that girls should start wearing makeup at 13. I think a cute lip gloss is OK for 8 & 9 year old though. But nothing else! Little girls are naturally beautiful because of their youth :)
IMO elementary school aged kids should not wear make up, except when they are doing it for fun in the house. When they are in middle school it's okay, I think. That's when they are discovering who they are. As long as it's within the boundaries of decency they should be allowed to do that.
I started wearing makeup daily in high school...but in middleschool I sometimes wore lip gloss and sometimes I'd use my mom's mascara...so I'd say high school is a good time to start and yes 8 or 9 is too young to wear makeup
