Question and answer
  • QUESTION Hi, I’m 14 and my best friend has started to wear some make-up (mainly just coloured lip gloss and mascara) and I want to also. How do I ask my mum if I can?
  • ANSWER There’s a couple of ways you could approach this and you’ll know best for your mum, but one way might be to bring up how pretty your friend’s make up looks and that you’re thinking of wearing some yourself. That will certainly encourage your mum to say what she thinks about it. Another way may be to ask for some make up for an upcoming birthday and see what she thinks. Failing that, you could try the direct approach and ask her outright if she minds if you start wearing some gloss and mascara.

    busyem98 Just put on abit of mascara to thicken ur lashes but not too much otherwise it will clump up and instead of lip gloss use lip balm or lip conditioner it will give it a better look and shine, just see if youre mum notices if not then dont worry... Just do baby steps at a time with make up :)

    9345bubble Me with makeup (im 12) well, i do mine really well because i don't like to look like i'm wearing makeup for example: I pull all the lumps out of the mascara and don't wear coloured eyeshadow. Im only 12. But my bday is soon and when my mum asked me what i wanted, i said I dunno, and then when she was in the shower i asked her if i could please have some for my bday and she said maybe but it wasn't awkward

    vintage.sprinkles24 I kinda just started wearing it, and one day my mum was like, are you wearing makeup? And I said yes. That was pretty much it :D but don't wear heaps at the start there's a chance you'll look like a retard and the sudden difference will be noticeable. I just wear mascara and concealer and I think just that improves my appearance so much without making it look like I'm wearing makeup. Sorry that was basically a personal monologue and didn't really answer your question but maybe it will help :P

    Pumpernickel I got makeup when I was 6 just for being stupid but now I actually use it so maybe you should just use it and see what ur mum says or when your friend comes over try and get her to wear sum and look pretty and eventually your mum should give in

    Feona7 catch your mum at a really good time and comment on her make up if she wears any then ask what age she starteed wearing it and keep following up and ask her. Over exagerate how many friends are wearing it.eventually she will crack.

    Fever I did the same as BabyDino. Everyday now I wear a light sheen of my favourite pink-ish lipgloss and some mascara. I just went outright and asked my mum for some make-up and the next day she took me out to but some.
    If mums etc know that you're wearing it then they usually don't say anything.

    BabyDino I think you should just start wearing it and then if she notices she probs wont say anything. If she does say something don't lie just say yeah im wearing it. thats what i did and nothing happened
