What do you think of makeup on kids? How old does a person have to be to put on a full face of makeup?

My niece is 3 and we love putting makeup on her. Especially on occasions when we doll her up and match her eyeshadow and lipstick with the bright colors in her outfit. It's so cute!

I believe full face makeup should be put on after the growth spurt of puberty ends. Doesn't have to be an adult and one can be still growing, but not the growth spurt time or before please. I personally feel like, growth spurt is the time that separates you from being appropriate for kid's makeup to being appropriate for adult makeup. I didn't know what to do with my face during my time, but I loved black eyeliner always because it enhances my big eyes.

  • I don't think it's right to put on makeup on toddlers. Their skin is too delicate to do so. Even grown woman's skin is affected by it. We have tradition of putting kohl.. but in older times, it used to be prepared at home itself (by holding ghee-covered silver spoon on flame and then collecting the soot) so it was much safer. Nowadays, commercially prepared Kohl has many chemicals so personally I don't recommend it either.

  • Yes, some makeup is okay after a girl reaches puberty but not before.

    • You must have passed the time when the only thing women knew as makeup was eyeshadow and red lipstick, and not layers that add 8 pounds to every woman's weight. :(

  • I wouldn't say makeup is appropriate for a 3 year old, maybe a teenager but not a kid. Personally, makeup makes the skin less healthy. I don't know the minimum age, but if say around 15 is when girls can put full face of makeup.

    • Obviously we don't put full face makeup on kids. It's just bright eyeshadows and lipstick. :/ Traditionally mothers of infants even put on a dot of kohl on the baby's forehead since birth because they believe it protects the baby from evil eyes. It's also makeup that is put on a baby from birth.

  • She perhaps likes to put makeup on because of an older sister or a relative with her?

    It isn't ideal for a young child to put makeup on too much or at all.

  • It feels awkward I've seen it a lot and whether the child did it herself or not looking at it gives me a scary gasped

  • At 3 years old, I feel like kids shouldn't be exposed to cosmetics. Kids shouldn't wear makeup. I started wearing makeup at 13 and I feel like that is an appropriate age.

    • Mothers put a black dot on the infant's forehead from birth every time they take their baby outside, it's a tradition here that is believed to keep the baby away from evil eyes. Does that count as makeup too?

    • No, I feel like that is a cultural thing, and it's fine.

  • I think it's fine for kids to play with it or wear it for special events. But actually wearing it regularly I'd make them wait until at least 13 to start playing with some of it as I wouldn't want my daughter to be mistaken for older and subsequently receive inappropriate attention. While you can go all feminist and say things shouldn't be that way there's no denying the possibility that it could happen.

  • i feel like you have to be at least 16 years old to be putting full face make up on. make up on kids is horrible especially with so many pedophiles out their. if kids where to put on play makeup then that is fine there just playing dress up i guess.

    • Pedophile? That's what you really think? Of course by makeup on kids I mean dress-up! :(

  • I think kids should be allowed to wear makeup @ I young age. I did & it didn't make me obsessed, I often go w/out it in fact

  • It's okay when she is home and things like that and photography but not going outside really. I think everybody should embrace all of the makeup trends.
