My daughter was about four years old when our relatives gave her a set of cosmetics (shadows, lipsticks, nail polishes, etc.). Zhenya was visiting my mom and, when I took her away, she bragged in front of me in new clothes.
What a nightmare! – flashed through my head. It was very cheap in appearance. Most likely, it should have been used for dolls, but how to explain it to a child? Of course, my beauty was not too lazy to do makeup for herself.
In general, I had an educational conversation with my mother, and I tried to explain to the child that this was disgustingly rare. The set was sent to the trash.
Doubtful toy cosmetics
I can not understand why they make such kits for children and why adults buy them.
Here, first, and not long poisoned. And secondly, this is the education of bad taste: bright lilac shadows and intense cherry lipstick on a tender girlish face!
On the other hand, in the children’s world, colorless lip gloss, perfume in the form of strawberry-scented sprays are sold. This is all, of course, girls are interested, you can and try. But again, in my opinion, it is better to buy in a pharmacy hygienic lipstick, which causes more confidence.
Nourishing taste begins with moderation
My mother-in-law was not taken a joke by Oriflame cosmetics. In pursuit of discounts, she buys the myriad of necessary and unnecessary for herself and the whole family, including for her beloved granddaughter.
I can not understand why a child of 4-6 years old perfumes, creams, lip gloss. Well, you can sometimes color in honor of a holiday or some other special occasion, but why are there so many of these jars?
In one of the previous topics, I already wrote that I try not to go into conflicts with my mother-in-law, so the creams donated to the child, I just take myself or store somewhere. After all, I also donate, not in distress.
I agree that a girl needs to be taught from an early age to use various female features. But the main rule that needs to be suggested to a young woman of fashion, as it seems to me, is to follow the measure.
When is it appropriate to make a baby makeup?
Does the child still need cosmetics? I believe purely for informational purposes, very rarely, in special cases, you can use. For example, we have a tradition to arrange a photo session before the New Year, in order to later present elegant cards to the grandmothers. Before shooting, I tint baby sponges and more! The blush on the cheeks of little girls always seems to me vulgar.
Several times with liquid eye shadows I drew a cat’s whiskers and nose. Well, it’s in pampering and again for filming.
When there is a bitter cold in winter, my husband and I put on lips with hygienic lipstick. But this is normal, otherwise it will dry out and may crack.
I periodically paint my daughter’s nails. I do not allow this to be done on my own. And, looking at me, she more and more often chooses a colorless varnish: as if she was not made up, but she shines beautifully. If not colorless, then choose something neutral, not flashy. This, in my opinion, should bring up the taste of the young ladies.
And in what cases do you give your daughter cosmetics?
