*(This post was updated with product links in 2017)* I remember as a young child, whenever a dance recital or Halloween would come around, I would get so excited because I knew those special occasions allowed me the opportunity to: 1. get dressed up, and 2. wear makeup!! Two of my favorite things!!
Most young girls I know are pretty thrilled with the idea of getting dolled up.
However there is the age old question that moms like me have, “What is the appropriate amount of makeup a young girl should be allowed to wear??”
Now that I have a daughter of my own, who is obviously interested in makeup (note above pic from Christmas!) I will definitely have to go ahead make a decision on WHEN I’m going to let her makeup and then, HOW MUCH of it!!
But since I am a makeup artist, I do have a guideline for what I use on young girls when I am hired to work with them for special events like wedding, homecoming, prom, etc.
