    Don't wear it because everyone else is. That's not a good reason at all.

    DON'T wear foundation!!! You are young and shouldn't wear it yet because it will wreck your skin if you start wearing in at age 12.

    If YOU think you want to wear makeup, start with a little bit of brown mascara and lip gloss. Just make sure you talk to your parents before you start wearing anything.

    Don't forget to get a second opinion from a few good friends so you don't go out of the house wearing makeup for the first time looking like a clown.

    Hey...well dont worry because I'm 12 too and in the 7th grade. I think that alot of girls our age want to wear makeup but, they have no idea how to apply it. And believe me, sometimes I wear way too much makeup. But, guys really like the natural look, or thats what I've been told. And alot of girs dont NEED to wear it, but people (like me) just feel better to put it on. So, I wear,fondation, a little blush, maybe a little neutral eyeshadow, and some mascara. I know it sounds like alot but it makes me feel better about myself. But as far as your concered, I think that its compleatly your choice and if people judge you if you do end up wearing it well, they obviously arent worth your time. Hope this helps... ;D

    No u shouldn;t, ur 12 not 20, why do all girls want to look old so quick? The innosence of a young girl is so special, wearing makeup at the age of twelve is tartish and can cause problems, be your age and enjoy it, dont worry about what others think, if they want to be tarts let them, look fresh and young cos thats what you are, be proud of it. Dont worry you;ll be old soon enough and then you can worry about makeup to make yourself look younger, dont try and look older. There is nothing more ridiculus looking than seeing a 12 year old or younger wearing 18 year old clothes and make up, it looks sluttish. Be yourself. Peace.

    If you want to start wearing make-up you should start with something very light. You may not need foundation now, but look for a neutral blush with sparkles in it, make sure you buy a large make-up brush to apply it, apply to your cheeks in an upward motion to the sides of your eyes by your hairline. You will love this effect and as you get older you will add some color. Have fun!

    you should definitely NOT wear foundation. The more you put if off, the better your skin will look in the future. Trust me, I had beautiful skin when I was your age, but all my friends were wearing makeup and I wanted to follow so I did it too. The only thing makeup ever brought me was wrinkles, fine lines, patchy skin, discoloration and blemishes. its just not good for your skin! foundation, anyways. Dont wear foundation. But if you'd like, you can try mascara, eyeshadow, blush, lipstick, just not foundation.

    I would say no. I know how you feel, but I'm 15 and don't wear make-up. I wear lipgloss and clear mascara. It doesn't clog your skin or make you look older than you are. Don't try to grow up too fast. You'll regret it later!! Stay natural and your skin will stay younger as well! Maybe you could talk to your mom about it. I really hope this helps! Good luck, whatever you decide!

    hmm well im 15 and in the 10th grade, and still most of my friends dont wear makeup. i only and only wear mascara and eyeliner and lip gloss. i think that if you start actually puting makeup on your face, then you are most likly to start breaking out. if you feel comfortable with makeup on , then why not wear makeup. if your friends are wearing makeup that shouldnt stop you from doing what you want to do. i started wearing eyeliner and stuff like that when i was 13. no one has really said anything to me about how i shouldnt wear it. oh and just be yourself please. dont try and be someone that you know your not with putting on a whole lot of makeup on.

    me.

    Its your choice but you where make up if you feel you should or if you want too but don't do it just cause everyone else is doing it. I started wearing make up in the 6th or 7th grade i'm in 10th now but back then I sur eas hell didn't know how to apply it and I looked like a clown. But i mean if oyu want to wear make up don't wear too much cause it makes you look fake...with make up the less you wear the better you look...I always advise ppl to onli where eye shado and lip gloss but make sure the eyeshadow goes with your skin tone and wear onli sticky lip gloss DO NOT WEAR WET LIPGLOSS BECAUSE IT DRIES QUICKY AND WHEN IT DOES YOUR LIPS LOOK CRAKCED AND CRUSTY AND THEY PEEL...so...yea its basically your choice =)

    at 12 my friend let her daughter start wearing make-up it was mascara,lipgloss and occasionally blush. nothing overdone. the gloss had a sunscreen in it so it was good for protection, the mascara was a color that matched her natural color so it looked nice, and just a hint of blush. she is now 16. and knows how to apply make-up better than the lancome ladies at the stores. bringing out her best features without overdoing it
