Every girl in her childhood took her mother's cosmetics and secretly did makeup. The modern generation of girls not only does not hide from their parents with lipstick, but also insistently asks them to buy cosmetics. And mothers do not refuse. Elementary school students from the UK spend whole evenings watching videos from beauty bloggers, recreating a professional make-up in front of a mirror. Why don't their parents forbid them to wear makeup as a child? Find out from our material.Last week, British TV star Katie Price caused a storm of conflicting opinions on social networks by posting a photo of 6-year-old daughter Bunny with makeup and false eyelashes. The picture collected 15,000 likes, and subscribers hotly debated among themselves whether Katie had made a parental mistake.
More than half of British women believe that children under 14 should not wear makeup.
7-year-old Harriet Parkinson does not watch cartoons like her peers, but makeup workshops in TikTok. She carefully follows the techniques of beauty bloggers and tries to recreate them on her face. The girl's mother, 39-year-old Natalie, says that her daughter is in love with cosmetics and uses it better than she does.
Natalie says that her daughter has a lot of nail polishes, nail files, makeup palettes and perfume bottles in her collection, but her mother keeps all these in her room and gives them to her daughter when she asks. The woman does not allow the baby to leave the house made up, however, she posts her photos with makeup on Facebook. Many users and friends criticize the woman for this, but the Briton sees nothing wrong with Harriet's passion for makeup.
On her eighth birthday, Natalie gave her daughter a makeup table, a mirror with lighting and a chair worth 120 pounds (about 12,000 rubles). In addition, she pampered the baby with a set of cosmetics for 60 pounds (about 6000 rubles).
When Harriet went to school, she had to wear glasses, and this greatly shattered her self-esteem. The girl hid her glasses, and then broke them, because she thought she looked ugly in them. The passion for makeup helped the baby to gather her thoughts and become self-confident again.
Another young lady, 11-year-old Poppy Holland, spends 700 pounds (about 70,000 rubles) a year on cosmetics. Her mother, 32-year-old Abby, says that her daughter does not leave the house until she puts on makeup. Poppy's collection of decorative cosmetics mainly consists of products of inexpensive brands, but in her cosmetic bag there are also products of far from cheap brands.
Abby spends 150 pounds (about 15,000 rubles) a year on haircuts for her daughter in a beauty salon. The daughter lightens the strands, does a gel manicure and wears false nails. Once every two months, Poppy paints her eyelashes and eyebrows. However, the young British woman does not wear makeup to school.
Poppy started getting into makeup at the age of 9. Since then, she has been watching master classes from beauty bloggers on YouTube and TikTok every night. The girl's mother claims that she has never heard negative reviews about her daughter's hobby, although she admits that she sometimes has mixed feelings.
It's a little weird when little girls wear makeup, but a guy who turns into Disney princesses with makeup looks even more unusual.
