In some ways, that's right. Wearing makeup at a younger age leads to earlier and more prominent wrinkles as you age.

I started wearing make up in 2nd grade I don't see the problem with it why does age matter on this subject? It's not like your make up is going to get your face pregnant..

I think there's a problem with you relating make-up to pregnancy.... Well, maybe it's just me, but it seems kinda creepy... Are you pregnant? Did you get pregnant from using make-up? Didn't think so......
Report as
ok first of all when you wear make-up IN THE 2 GRADE you might get creepy guys stocking you and yes age is a matter when you ware make-up because your really not.........OLD! and 2nd of all why do you add the pregnant part it is.................weird (Just a little)!

No I relate it because that's the only thing that matter's when it come's to age. I am pregnant. I hate people bitching about what age you do thing's at. It's stupid and ignorant.Get over yourself.

Really you shouldn't be obsessed with makeup at a young age, and it should not look cheap or desperate, but I'd say about 12 or 13. I really don't like the look of eyeshadow on young girls, though. I think it looks like they are trying too hard.

I think the one who said 2nd grade had some serious problems about self-image. Where were her parents? After reading the answers, I would say very light makeup at 12 or 13. You have the rest of your life to grow up. If you are going to wear makeup, make sure it's a good quality such as Clinique or Prescriptives, etc. Have your Mom or grownup take you for a makeover to see how to put on makeup correctly. Remember, rule of thumb, you shouldn't look like you are wearing makeup; it should enhance your look.

My parent's were there for me I wore light lip gloss,mascara and eyeliner at that age. I was all the rage in the 90s. Seriously that was what big sisters are for,my sister wanted to get me into make up and teach me because all the other kids at school also wore make up in 2nd grade.
It was the 90s what do you expect for my mom and dad to age generalize? no they don't do that. Your pretty messed up to age generalize.
Report as
JUST BECAUSE THINGS ARE ALL THE RAGE DOESNT MEAN YOU SHOULD DO IT. CRACK WAS ALL THE RAGE IN THE 90'S TOO
Report as
Crack was not all the rage in the 90s, you are wrong. The 90s was where D.A.R.E came alive. It's perfectly fine to wear make up at any age.

Don't. You're already beautiful. I wore makeup from ages 12-13 and it was fun, but after a while I realized that it's just too much, and that I don't need it, and you don't either. I'm going to be 15 next week and I haven't worn makeup since I was 13. Don't bother. Not worth your time.

If your are in a dance recital then any age is appropriate. If your are at a formal event then I would say 13 is OK. Once you reach an age that has teen after it you are no longer a child but a teenager (No you are still not an adult, Mom will explain that to you. for every day I'd say not until you reach 15.

kids will be kids, but, let them be kids! I'm with gene222. I say 16.
I do, I do, I do remember being a 13, 14, especially 15 year old kid,
and I like most other girls wanted "older guys" and look like I was 21 and all that jazz,
oh, and I Did know more than my parents before I was 16! :) :) J/k!!!! But makeup, well, I say lip gloss only until you are old enough to drive. Please don't get me wrong, I wanted so badly to wear more, but my mom only let me wear mascara (NOT waterproof) on Christmas for church. Which I also thought was irritating since it was also to only time I got to stay up past 9 p.m. Don't rush it! I'm happily married and my husband still likes me better without

Yeayaa! thanks prettygirl4ever and YELI! It's so interesting those men and their likes and dislikes when it comes to us women! Sometimes I think he wants me to look "all jazzed up", meaning stockings, nice dress, hair down, & face done to the "T"'s and the next time we go to the exact same place, & he'll want me to go in leggies, a nice long blouse, flats, and chap stick, w/hair in clip. As a general rule, it's a good thing he likes me without more than with because I don't wear it everyday! Just lipstick when he comes home from work! You two have wonderful nights. and thanks again for the comments!

If you're talking about light make-up on special occasions, as young as mother allows. If you're trying to cover flaws or enhance a special feature, tints are good at about 15. If you want to look like a movie actress on stage, after high school. Make-up should enhance your features and make you look healthy, not tacky. Less is always more.

It all depends. Don't wear tooooo much makeup. If you do wear to much whenever you take off your make up you will feel like you have to apply it again and you don't feel as beautiful with your natural look. Natural look is fine a bit of cover up and eye liner wont kill anyone.
