I don't really like make up much, but I understand that it can be a creative outlet much like dying hair, etc. My theory on anything like that is that they are free to do it once 1. They can pay for it (or most of it), and 2. They are old enough to take care of it. It's how I feel about tattoos, piercings, hair dye, anything. I guess with makeup that would look like: they are buying it, they are putting it away, putting it on correctly, washing it off every night, things like that. So I won't really be allowing any of that while my kids are under 10ish, except for some flavored chapsticks or costume makeup.

Plus any makeup purchased will include a free discussion with Mom on media standards of beauty and realistic beauty.

Ry, happily engaged to Zach.
Mom to Bodhi, Brigham, and Elliott.
