Some girls wear make-up because they think it will improve the physical appearance to attract potential partners.
Some wear it because they like they way it looks on them.
Sometimes girls wear make-up because on some days they don't feel attractive so they wear it.

I myself wear eyeliner, and that's basically it. I wear it because I think it looks good on me and others agree. ^^;

no im not optimize on those who wear makeup just i was saying that natural beauty is natural. some time we see that when we put makeup its hide our real innocense which is in reality and makeup sucks it purely and you talked about occasions then it is doesn't matter to wear makeup on party no doubt good touch of makeup looks pretty

Good for you! Some jokes I've heard is it's war paint or clown paint. However those with vidiligo or other skin conditions wear it for good reasons. Sometimes it does look good on people but I'm with you only when they are conservative.

For the same reason MEN wear camouflage to hunt-its all about catching the prey-in the case of females, its to catch their prey too(men). Its also to show off to the other girls in class, I've noticed. Its not necessary.

Girls wear make up to attract the opposite sex it's true back in ancient times the aztecs and mayans and egyptians put on face paint to make themselves look appealing I'm not saying it's a bad thing to wear it I'm just saying go natural and don't put it on too dark or you"ll get the wrong kind of attention guys will think your easy...I had to learn the hard way in high school I wore it really dark but since I graduated I've realized how bad it looked example my senior picture that is also my profile picture

most girls love make-up.if ur ugly,it makes u look pretty.(sometimes uglier).if ur pretty it makes u look prettier.i wear make-up occasionally.i dont think u shud wear it everyday.ppl shud know how u look without make-up too.although i love natural beauty,i think make-up boosts ur self-esteem.it makes u feel better abt urself.sometimes it makes u feel confident.but i dont think teenagers shud wear too much make-up.it'll make u look old early.i have big black eyes so i usually wear eye-liner.if its a bigger occasion,then i might wear a bit more make-up.

The main thing is now a days, everything is about sex and a big boobs. A big butt, a curvy waist. Sexy skin, and yadda yadda yadda. When a young girl around the ages of 12-14, watch TV or read fashion magazines, all they see is this skinny size-zero girl with make-up caked all over her face. Back in the 1800s, everyone was natural. They didn't care if you had a nice figure or big breasts. Or if you were pretty.

Today is all about looks and sex. Many girls turn to make-up because they had a past of bullying because they were called "ugly". Most girls who are bullied end up wearing tight shirts, short shorts, and whole lot of make-up. Don't get me wrong, some girls who had a past of bullying are still modest. The only reason is because they are trying to forget their past.

(Read comments for the rest :D)

But here's the main reason why girls wear make-up. Low self-esteem. Most girls look in the mirror and say "My breasts are too small. My eyes are too big. I'm so ugly!". They only say that because they don't look like Miley Cyrus or Kim Kardashian. Most girls feel they need make-up to boost their self-esteem, and I don't blame them. I know that God created us to be ourselves, but He wants us to love and cherish ourselves, right? And if make-up helps you to learn to accept and appreciate this time on earth, then no. It is not a sin.

Most of the time, girls really don't start wanting make-up until their second year of Junior High(7th Grade). By that time, the girl has been exposed to sexual things and is most likely going through puberty. Most of the time, girls and boys(mainly girls), dislike at least one thing on their changing bodies. Either it's their breasts or their legs, a growing pre-teen will always dislike something about herself. She feels that she must wear make-up to attract the opposite sex. It is very natural for a pre-teen and early teen girl to want make-up, wear more appealing clothes, and just be treated like a teenager. As a parent, you must make sure that the girl does not go too far.

Either way, make-up is a safe way to enhance you're beauty, because when you were born you were born beautiful. Make-up is just the way of appreciating it.



Anyway, I think starting at the age of 13 and over a girl should be allowed to wear make-up. Just a little eyeliner and some lip gloss will do for a 13-year-old. :)
