Today my daughter wanted me to put blush on her before heading out the door to go to school. I thought for a second, and said sure with a smile. I mean, it’s just blush right? What’s a little blush? So I ran up to my make-up bag and got a very light shade and brushed it on her chubby little cheeks. But while she was smiling ear to ear, I thought, “Is this Okay?” Should I be doing this? Not that she looked like a hooker or anything but, if I let her go to 1st grade with a little blush on, what was next?
Then it occurred to me, why is she asking to wear make-up? Does she think she needs make-up to be pretty? Are other girls at school wearing make-up? Does she like a boy and want to look pretty for him?
Am I settting myself up for trouble?
I want to hear your Savvy Sassy Opinion!
Please leave a comment and check which age you think it’s appropriate for girls to start experimenting with Make-up?
