For most people makeup is to "enhance" their features on their face. I wanted to wear makeup cause I thought of it...as an art in a way. Instead of using paper or whatever to scribble on I use my face. I started wearing makeup by the end of 6th grade or probably when I entered 7th grade is when I really started wearing makeup. At first it was very natural, you know pinks, light browns, sheer gloss. But as the year passed and when I got to 8th grade I wanted to experiment more. So I tried different makeup styles from "scene" to "pinup" to even the whole rainbow style I did. Now some of those makeup styles are a little drastic they may be for you though. The only reason why I don't think you would like it is because you would be kinda uncomfortable with the staring. Me I don't give a damn, but I make it so the people are staring because my makeup style was so daring, and unique and pretty not cause I look like an escaped clown. For me it's all about balance. If you want to have a dark eye, go ahead but keep the rest of your makeup low - key so people are not overwhelmed about all the crap you put on your face. I saymaybe14 is a good age to start. that's all for now hope I helped, msg me for more makeup, fashion, hair tips if you'd like. blondie.

-Make up is to take your natural beauty and enhance it so you look even better. -There is no right age. It depends on your family and when girls in your grade are wearing it. I started when I was 13; some people think this was too young but I also wasn't wearing a lot, just a little blush and eyeliner. -I think blush, lip gloss, mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, cover up, and foundation are all "acceptable." -I wear: Brown Eyeliner Clear Mascara Coral Blush Cover Up (if needed) Lip Gloss (not always)

Make up helps you accent your natural beauty.. at least that is my opinion on what make up is for. The right age in my opinion to start wearing make up is 16 to 18. Why? Because younger than that is too young and that's all they will be focusing on. We want smart girls not barbie girls, right? Slight eyeliner is nice in brown to black, I don't like other colors unless it's pinkish because to me, they look slutty. Mascara is nice, a little lipgloss with tint is really nice too and if needed, a little blush. I am 27 years old, and I wear just that, eyeliner, mascara, blush and tinted lipgloss. Not too much.. just the right amount to look nice. Besides, if you wear too much makeup, you run the risk of sagging your face and getting wrinkles at a younger age because of all the chemicals that dry up your face, even if it is hypoallergenic.

makeup is for to to hide imperfections and help have things stand out. eyeliner/mascara/eyeshadow help the eyes pop or more noticeable. lipstick does the same thing for the lips. foundation helps the skin tone become one color or blend in better. in my opinion, girls should start wearing makeup till high school or a year before high school. the kind of makeup is acceptable is foundation, eyeliner, mascara and some eyeshadow and lipstick/lipgloss you should only wear enough that makes whatever you want to pop out POP OUT.

make up is to make you look brighter and stick out the crowd as an diva. i would say the right age is 18 and up because now your skin is fully develop. i think every make-up advertised is acceptable and when you put on lipstick just make sure it don't be so much and that goes for eye-shadow too. i dont where make up only on holloween

make up is for people who are uncomfortable with their features. However it can also enhance area's on your face such as eyes, cheek bones, etc. young girls don't need makeup, i think you should wait until 7th grade to start wearing any, and maybe even 8th. you don't want to put alot of makeup on, a little can go a long way and you want to look natural. you can experience with different makeups to find what suits you best, but start with just a little. hope this helps :)

Make up is for giving you a different look. Any age really as long as it gets washed off and if your really young not to much. I think most make up is acceptable but I don't like mascara. I wear quite a lot of make up frequently in every day use.

Make up is suposed to be used just to enhance your own features. I would say probably 14 is an Ok age to start wearing makeup. Less is more when regarding makeup, just use it to make your eyes stand out and to plump your lips. Natural colors are the best.
