When was the first time you applied applied for the first time?
Little girls as young as 6 years of age are applying make up these days to look "pretty". Heartbreaking!
I probably tried make up as a child, myself. Thats what my mother says. But it was a no-no from her side. And she prevented it from happening to an extent that, even now I have enough make only to fit in my tiny pouch.
A little girl I know, was over at my place a few days back. And she applied my lipstick. And used my mascara on her eyebrows. I don't really use much makeup so she didn't find anything more. This girl is 7 years old. She uses fair and lovely and she has a lipstick of her own. I sat and explained to her why it was not good for her to start using make up yet. I told her that fair and lovely is too harsh for her skin. I'm not sure how much of it she understood. But I did my bit.
My opinion: Makeup for kids? No way!
My sincere request to those around young girls. Keep makeup out of their reach. Both physically and mentally.
But of course, until the time is right.
