LOTW- Tween Back To School MakeUp

LOTW- Tween

Can you believe that it back to school time already? While I am ready for the routine again, I am not ready for everything else that comes along with back to school. If your daughter is anything like mine, she has already started the “what makeup can I wear to school” type questions. While we home school, so there is not a whole lot of “going” to school, it translate to what can she wear everyday or out and about.

After my knee jerk reaction of, “no makeup at all” response. I gave it some thought, thought back to when I was starting the 8th grade and what I was allowed to wear. We were able to come to a compromise. Tink is not allowed to wear a full face of makeup, under any circumstance. I just don’t see a reason for it. But a little bit would be acceptable.

MakeUp Needed:

  • Light Neutral Eyeshadow
  • Mascara
  • Lip Gloss

Step One-
Apply a light neutral eyeshadow color across entire eyelid. From lash line to the crease and slightly above.

Step Two-
Apply one coat of mascara to top eyelashes only.

Step Three-
Apply lip gloss in any shade over lips.

And your ready to walk out the door. While this is not a whole lot, very simple and quick to apply, it makes her feel as if she is more put together and ready to tackle the world. How about you, do you let your tween daughter wear makeup? Why or why not?

    When I was that age (I’m presuming around 11-12), we weren’t even considering make up, but by year 10 (age 14-15) we were mostly into concealer if required and clear mascara. We weren’t allowed make up at school and nowadays girls go out to places/are a lot more mature than we were back in our day 20 years ago.

    I think I’d probably allow similar concealer if they’re self conscious and have spots, and a light mascara, but that would be it. I’m quite glad I’ve got a boy, and (hopefully) won’t have to deal with make up and revealing clothes issues.
