    Meh. My 3yo puts on makeup on a semi regular basis. And he is a boy. Meh. She has talent. Nothing different than those that make theor kids youtube stars for opening toys etc.

    So overall - meh.

    People putting her down for it will do more damage than the makeup itself.

    She clearly has a talent. Just because it's for make up doesn't make it any less meaningful. If a 6 year old had an amazing voice, or could paint masterpieces, s/he would be encouraged to explore and develop their talent. This is no different. Encourage her to do what she clearly is already amazing at. I wish I had had a passion at that age!

    I would also wonder the damage that makeup will do to her skin. If she is wearing it regularly at age 6, what would her skin be like in 20 years time, when she is only 26? To me,the thing that really tipped it over the edge was the fake eyelashes, & the little pout at the end. She doesnt look like a little girl painting herself with mummys lipstick, she is transforming her natural look and wearing very heavy makeup in order to look completely different. It is very much like how little girls are dressed up for beauty pageants. Each to their own, everyone parents differently and that's ok but it's not for me. I prefer to see my 5 year old with mud on her face because she has been playing outside and getting grubby like a 5 year old should, rather than expertly applying makeup.

    I'm in two minds on this for my DD. I want her to be able to express herself how she wants in terms of how she dresses, wear her hair, fingernails and I guess that includes makeup as well. As long as its not permanent and its weather appropriate its ok.

    But I really struggle with seeing young children with makeup. I want DD to feel comfortable in her own skin without needing it.

    As for the girl in the clip, while its something I dont necessarily love, thats a choice for her parents.

    People generally think wearing make-up = must have low self esteem or it will damage self esteem. Make up is fun. It's an art form. Maybe for a lot of people it is an insecurity thing, but for many, its not.

    This little girl has found a way to express herself. She's found a love in make up. I'd be more concerned with trolls making her feel ugly than the stuff she puts on her face that she washes off every time. I would worry about the ingredients in the products she's using, but if this is what she loves to do, good on her.

    I remember going into the bathroom and finding my mums stash of lipsticks and being intrigued by it. Never did it make me feel like I needed to wear it because I wasn't good enough as I was.

    It ain't the make up that makes us insecure, it's the world we're a part of.

    But does make up and the extent to which it is used, stem from the world we are part of to begin with?

    I think she is probably just having fun, and enjoying what she is doing. As for how she learnt it - my 4 year old niece is capable of looking things up in YouTube (which she does with adult help and supervision). My guess is that this little girl has watched make up tutorials as well.
    The reality is that we don't know how often she puts make up on, and what sort of make up for each application, or how exactly this video came about. We also don't know anything about her attitudes, her other activities, or any of her or her parents' thoughts or perceptions on anything. For all we know, after this she went and played outside in the mud. If she's just having fun, let her go for it. As for actually posting the video on YouTube - not something I would do for my family personally. But I guess it's an each to your own sort of thing these days.

    i'd say no to my dd to wear it like that. i don't mind lip gloss and a bit of blush but that is it. i actually think the girl looks cuter without it at all - as it's very heavy.
