I am 13 years old. I wear makeup every day. Foundation, concealer, powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick. Just so you know, I actually know how to apply it. It looks good. I don't dress super suggestively, but I wear shirts with cut outs a lot and I show my midriff on occasion. I don't have sex, I don't even have a boyfriend. People generally associate younger teens wearing makeup and dressing like this with children having sex and being "scandalous". However, I only wear makeup and dress the way I do because it gives me confidence and makes me feel beautiful. I act modestly, I don't show cleavage, and I have no desire to engage in sexual activities (until I am older). The most I would ever do is kissing, and not "hardcore" kissing and making out. Is it wrong for me to dress the way I do and wear makeup? I would never change the way I dress/look because it gives me confidence and makes me feel beautiful, but I want a public opinion.

obviously it's up to your parents and then you... but my personal opinion is, and what i'll will convey to my daughter, that at 13 she's too young. just my personal feeling
i want my daughter to feel comfortable in her skin rather than covering it up. i feel like like at around 12/13 is when people really start to develop consciousness about their appearance in terms of how people view them. i'd hope that my daughter could learn to feel fine with how she looks and is perceived without makeup0

I think its okay. You might be wearing a bit much for your age but then 13 today isn't how 13 was in 2008 xD let alone earlier. And you sound really mature.
I put makeup on my sister and niece for fun abd people have judged me for that but its like... there's nothing trashy about makeup. Its fun, its pretty, its girly. Acting trashy is trashy. If you behave yourself and your parents approve I don't see the problem.2
