I want to start wearing make up but I'm too scared to ask my mom about it. HELP ME!

My mom is over protective and no one can talk nicely without her going nuts about it, I'm 13 and feel like I need it.

Once you start wearing make-up, your never gonna like yourself without it. True fact.

Make-up isn't cheap. Just try it and mom will show you how to use it correctly. Mom doesn't want you to look like a clown! :)

You don't need makeup, but it can be fun. I say ease her into it. just start with light cover up and some mascara. (that's all you really need anyway)

Tell her your growing up and think your at your age that you want it , let her know that every teenager is going to want it . Just dont try to wear a little to much cause shell end up not letting you wear it at all .

Ask her. My mom hated when I wore makeup until I asked her to wear it. It also depends on how old you are. Are you ready for it? I'm thirteen and I just started. And also if she says yes, here's a little tip: don't go too heavy on it. It will make your mother freak out, and you probably won't wear it again. So just ask her. What's the worst thing that could happen?

Just ask her. She will either say yes or no. But truly at 13 you do not need it. I started wearing mascara and blush when I was 13 -- but I did not "need" to and I should not have. I am an adult now and rarely wear it. It just is not necessary. No one "needs" it sweety. That is just something advertisers for the products want you to believe.

Is that you in your avatar? If so, you are pretty as is. Make-up will only detract from that.

Just ask. You're 13, I really don't think you need a lot if any at all. Maybe some mascara, eyeshadow, and some lip gloss but that's it.

first of all don't tell her "all my friends wear makeup!" just tell her that you think you are ready for that transition and that you are not a little girl anymore and you just want to boost your self confidence up and that makeup will help do that. If she still says no than just show her that your grown enough to use makeup and show her how responsible you are.

I started wearing mascara when I was 12 so I think you should just go for it don't ask your mom about it just say "bye mom" and walk out the door to school/bus with it already on that's what I did and she didn't give a damn also if you don't have any makeup raid your moms purse lol im sure youll find something, another thing if you don't know how to put on makeup well that's what youtubes for p.s I would start with mascara ditch the eyeshadow until you find out your color that was my mistake hav fun and those bitchy people who say you shouldn't wear makeup ignore them they probably feel insecure with themselves so they don't wear it one word: CONFIDENCE and you will be just fine

Please don't listen to this person. It's going to cause issues between you and you're mom. Also, she's not old enough to realize when as they get older most women wish they had never started wearing makeup. It just ends up causing more skin issues than it helps.
