i don't think there are "should's" when it comes to "when" you start wearing makeup. if women feel comfortable without makeup, they shouldn't feel pressured by society or anyone to wear it. once you start wearing it, a lot of the time you become reliant on it. I mean obviously no one should be caking it on, especially girls of young ages but if and when and how much depends on the person.
my parents let me do my own thing when it came to makeup and it was my way of finding my own individual style/identity. in grade 5 I wore eyeliner. it was quite thick and I wasn't good at it. grade 6 I stopped wearing makeup except for the occasional lip gloss. grade 7, no makeup, as well as grade 8. grade 9 I wore eyeliner on my bottom waterline and eyeshadow and that's it. grade 10-i learned proper eye makeup and wore that but nothing else. once I got out of high school I learned the whole works but I learned how to make it extremely natural. to this day I wear natural looking makeup and I base it on if I have acne, how tired I look or am that day, etc. sometimes I wear no make up at all.
women should do their makeup the way they want/feel the need for as long as it makes them feel confident. they shouldn't make it look unnatural or cakey in my opinion but when and how much is up to them.
