I need some opinions. My daughter is 12 years old and in 6th grade. Currently, she is not allowed to wear makeup and she has not shown much interest until now. She came home from a friend's house last night with makeup on. I did not think it was a big deal until I noticed she still had the makeup on when she was leaving for school this morning. Of course I questioned her on it, and she said it would not come off. Being a woman that wears makeup, I know that if you want makeup off, you can get it off.
I am not willing to allow her to wear makeup right now, but I am considering allowing her when she starts 7th grade (in the fall) and starts middle school. She will still be 12. Do you think this is too young? If I do allow her, I will control what colors (muted) she would be allowed to wear. If I remember correctly, I think I started wearing makeup in 8th grade, but that is so long ago, I am not positive. What is your take on this? I would really like your opinion.
