I have a 9-year-old daughter who is seriously interested in makeup now. And while I won’t allow her to wear it (in public at least), she loves to watch me put it on in the morning and she’ll even go through my makeup bag to look for new things in there. Heck, she’ll even spend some time watching makeup tutorials on YouTube (much to my horror at times). But at the same time, I can’t be a hypocrite. She sees me wearing makeup all the time and that’s why I can’t tell her that it’s not for her. I just tell her to try and be patient and when the right time comes for her to start wearing makeup, I’ll definitely let her know. And of course, help her along the way, too.
Now, that doesn’t mean that every mom feels the same way about seeing their daughters experiment with makeup, too. Some as you can imagine are more conservative while others are more liberal about the topic. In fact, celebrity mom and Hollywood actress Rachel Bilson recently opened up about her own daughter’s unique makeup routine. And while some people are raising their eyebrows about it, I find it quite cute!
