When do you start wearing makeup?

I wear make up sometimes, my friends do too, but I feel like I'm still too young to wear makeup and my parents think so too, I'm in the 8th grade so IS IT too young?

It's not too young, but it's not necessary either. Some girls just look silly with makeup at that age. I rarely wear makeup, unless I'm going to a scene concert. THEN, all of the makeup goes on. So really, it's a personal choice whether you wear it everyday, not at all, or just on special occasions.

Nope just a little bit of mascara and lip gloss would be fine

It depends on how much makeup. If its just some cover up, mascara, and maybe a little eyeshadow then its fine.But if its more than that you might look like your wanting to grow up too fast.

Not saying you're too young, nobody's ever too young... I sometimes wear natural eye shadow and foundation. (I'm in 7th grade.)

keep it natural girl! Once you start wearing it, it is hard to stop. Have you seen adults without their make up? The ones who wear it everyday. They look awful! :) If you want to wear it, just keep it simple. You will look great!

You don't need makeup. God made you you! Don't cover it up. You look beautiful just the way you are !
At least wait until your 16 or in high school at least.

NO WAY! I started in 6th! You're going to be a freshman next year, in my opinion, you're late if you're just starting in eighth. It is not too young.

That's the perfect age to start experimenting with makeup. But not drugs ;)

Keep it light and natural looking!

I wouldn't say you're too young. I wore makeup in 7th grade. But only a little eyeliner and lipgloss. Never cover up or blush or eye shadow or anything. It's up to you how much make up you want to wear or if you even want to wear it! But I would avoid cover up. For most people it makes acne worse even though it hides it.

Me, personally, never. I don't have any makeup or wear any. I'd say, if it's okay with your parents and if you want to, only you and no one else, 14-15. DON'T LOOK LIKE A CRAYOLA BOX ATTACKED YOUR FACE! Keep it light and minimal, or else you'll look like Joan Rivers or Lindsay Lohan by the time your 40. :o

I started wearing make up in 7th grade ... But now I'm high school and I only wear mascara because a) pretty sure I'm allergic to some b) I just don't care what people think if I wear make up or not c)I don't like the feeling of tons of make up on and d) I believe your skin will be healthier without it on. Some of the oils in the make up can make your skin break out and can age your skin a little bit faster
---I don't think you should feel obligated to wear it. If you don't feel like you need it or want it don't wear it and... I say good for you and a lot people look good without it anyways.

I started wearing makeup at your age. If you think your too young then don't wear. See some people wear makeup because they are insecure about how they look. The earlier you start the more makeup you will wear in the further. Plus its a hassle to take off, and if you wear it to bed your face appears two days older each time! If you don't need it don't wear it. If you do start wearing makeup then do it natural looking and light. Guys usually don't like it if you look plastic and fake.

I mean as long as you don't look like a clown wear as much as you want. Don't look like a clown by wearing like red lipstick, a pound of blush, and blue eyeshadow. Do neutral colors.

There isn't a certain time you should wear or start putting on make-up. Girls shouldn't have to hide behind make-up,..a little here and there is alright, but when they start to cake it on it becomes trashy/obsession, if girls could actually see how much more attention they would get without it, they wouldn't even think about putting it on...
