    well she's certainly got makeup skills I'm envious of but no, not appropriate for a 6 year old. she looks closer to 10 or 12 with all that war paint on her face.

    clearly she has artistic talents...perhaps the parents could encourage her to expand on her creative repertoire in a way that's a little more appropriate for a 6 year old?

    I wouldn't mind it just as long as she didn't wear it beyond the house. And not online. But the makeup part I would think would be a fun thing to do

    She's doing it for fun? She's not wearing it out to the shops or to a nightclub?

    Who cares. I can't see the difference between playing dress ups as a kid and what she's doing. Yes it's on YouTube but that's the world our children inhabit these days.

    I wouldn't let my 6 year old on YouTube doing anything. But I can't get enraged about this.

    My thoughts? She sure does kick a$$ when it comes to makeup application!

    Secondary thoughts are that I would not really want my 6 year old to be in the public eye like that. I would actually be okay with her exploring her skill and creativity, but I would not be comfortable exposing her to public scrutiny (not to mention vile internet trolls).

    She's talented for sure, does a better job than me. I stick to mascara and eyeliner but I think that at 6, a kid doesn't even need to know about make up. Kids are growing up way too fast. I have daughters who are 9 and 11 who I don't let wear make up.

    I have no problem with a 6 yo playing with makeup, I will let dd wear my lipgloss out but I dont agree with false eyelashes and and heavy makeup like she is wearing flashing it all over the internet.
    But I do think she does a great job and her talent should be encouraged but 6yo's dont need to look 18 +

    The main issue I have is that it's clear she has been shown not only how to apply but how to present a make up tutorial on you tube. As someone that uses You tube for everything tutorial related, including make up, the style of showing the palette and pointing to the colour is very the 'done thing' on You Tube.

    She's good, no doubt. She's also naturally beautiful and full of spunk and personality which I love. But this isn't just a little girl playing around with colours and make up. She's been coached. That bothers me. My eldest is in high school next year and I won't let her wear eye liner or mascara or even half as heavy make up. Why? Because what am I teaching my daughter? That she isn't pretty enough without being embellished. Yes I wear make up but 1) I'm grown and 2) I wish my mother instilled self esteem into me where I didn't feel the need to hide behind it.

    As someone who wears make up and works with children, I think this is wrong. She's wearing the type of makeup to mask her skin and look older, sexy, glamorous etc. having a daughter my self, if she asked me at 6 to wear make up for something special the most id let her wear is a bit of eye shadow (mainly for the colours) and lipgloss.
    The 6 year old has talent but I don't think it's age appropriate at all. What's next? I think it's awful for her skin to be caking on all those toxins. Make up has ruined my skin and I never leave the house without it. I just wonder what she will be like when she's my age.

    I had a 5 year old little girl
    Tell me at pre school last year that I was so pretty. I said thanks and asked her why curious to know her answer, she said cause you have make up on. It made me scared, this little girl often said little things like that. With social media so in our face these days it's already effecting young children and we don't know how bad yet because they're not adults. I hate to think what this generation of children will be like when they're my age 27.
