Best Answer
it depend on the girl
some don't look aged enuff to wear it so it just looks cheap.but a good realistic age to start is miiddle school
like 10-12
i know it sounds young
but just a little brush of eye make up will be okay
just don't go over bord
and most girls start at thet age anyways
it's kinnda part of fittin in

    14 seems reasonable. highschool age. but not too much makeup. the "natural" look is suitable for every day.

    i think girls should wear heavy make-up as LATE as possible. cause wearing too much make-up will ruin your skin. but the simple stuff like mascara, eye-shadow, and eye-liner, preferably late also. at least 16~18 ish. but dont over do it.

    personally, i wouldnt wear make-up until i feel like i have something to hide, besides my pimples. >o< cause once you start wearing it, you'll think you'll look weird without it so youll keep on wearing it. soo i would wear it only for special occasions. :D

    When they are responsible enough to wash it off their face and wear it correctly. I would suggest taking her to a makeup counter in the mall and having them show the right way to put makeup on. Now a days you see so many girls with way too much eye liner and foundation.

    14 is a good start for powder and mascara and sometimes eyeshadow, then at 15 wear the eyeliner, mascara, and eyeshadow

    I started practicing when I was 9 but didnt wear it till I was11 and by then I got good at and it my parents didnt even notice. Now I am older and I believe you should practice around 10 so you get good at it so when you want to wear it when your older you know how to.practice makes perfect!

    When in doubt, dont guess.
    Just use less!!~mad-style~

    14 is about right. Lightly though. No need for a little girl to look like she is from the streets. Less is more.

    All a matter of opinion. I'm 14, and have just started wearing light eye-shadow and mascara. I personally think eyeliner looks tacky. Far to heavy.
    Maybe at night it looks good, but definitely not a casual day thing...

    When they feel that it is the time. But in general after puberty they can start with a little bit.

    saw 2 little girls on tv.. face full of make up.. they were 9 and 10. Def!!! too young. I started wearing a tiny bit at 14, and didnt start wearing base until right before i turned 16. Enjoy your youth while you can.. no need to rush into the make up scene.

    the minimum age should be around 13. any younger and it would look funny. also when they know how to put it on.

    14, if your face hasent grown to fit body yet, then trust me, dont. Ya, like Cody said, NO GUY likes a girl with tons of makeup, natural beauty is the best. No guy is tough enough to say that out loud though :P

    Never. I like girls better without make up. I think it should be saved for special occasions.

    Probably one or two years into middle school, which would probably be around the ages of 13-14.

    as early as they want to, make-up helps raise self esteem and i think that's good for any age.

    don't start till at least high school. i agree to say at late as possible cause if girls do it earlier and nobody else is, they get called *cough* names, unfortunetly.

    truthfully, if possible, i think the later the better and if not at all then even better (except for special occasians)

    i think about age 13, it depends really on alot of things like if the girl looks any better with it on, or if they look much older then they actully are.
    my mum wouldnt let me wear make-up for ages.
    but if its you that wants to start wearing make-up, i wouldnt start wearing foundation of concealor unless you absoulotly have to, beacause it gets such a chor and after a while you will start to need it and youll regret starting to wear it so soon
