    It wouldn't really be odd either way, but if her mum says no then she may as well respect that rather than falling out over it. When she's 16 she'll be a bit more independant and can revisit. If she's set on it, she could pluck her eyebrows at home and start with something like tinted moisturiser while she learns to use makeup

    here we go. no, you do prefer plucked eyebrows, even if it's just a little stray hairs underneath. you just don't like overly plucked brows where it's noticeably thin/sharp/overly shaped.
    also i think she should just listen to her mum at this age. My mother wouldn't let me until I was 16.

    I've been having my eyebrows waxed and have been wearing makeup since 13 ... if she does it right then she'll look fine it's just most people when they're younger put their makeup on all cakey so make sure she gets a makeup lesson or teach her how to do it first x

    Makeup - no, it damages your skin so the less you use and the older you are when you start (if you do), the better.

    Plucking eyebrows - why not? They'll regrow if you don't like the look, plus the hair roots get weaker if you keep plucking so it hurts less so the sooner you start the better.

    I started plucking my eyebrows at 13 as my brows were quite bushy. As long as she doesn't overdo it it's fine imo. A lot of teens have bad skin so I don't see anything wrong in it tbh. Most girls start wearing make-up aged 12 or 13 anyway.

    Most girls get to choose what to do with their appearance, at least to some extent, from the age of 11.

    You may not think it but they do. This can be from choosing how to wear their hair for school to what colour they paint their nails.

    Now, eyebrow plucking is perfectly fine in someone young - it's hair and it can grow back! As for make up I'd say this depends on what she's wanting. I was never really interested in make up because I was a total tomboy but I did wear cover-up to hide my acne.

    If my mum denied me the chance to get rid of that Wolverine monobrow and cover my volcanic eruption of a face I would have definitely got bullied. Denying her may be okay but it might damage her confidence so bare this in mind - high school is cruel.

    If her mom says no then no she should not as she's gotta respect that. However if her mother had no opinions on the matter I would say she could do that if she wants, your teen years are the time most people start experimenting with their appearance so there's nothing wrong with it.

    I think 15 is still like too young because all i wore was like mascara. And i still go to school without makeup im 16. She still has baby skin and the products could ruin her skin but at the end of the day its her risk at her own cost but i would advice her not to wear like foundation but a little lipstick wouldnt hurt anyone 😗😗😗😗💄💄💄💄

    Thats also true. High school is horrible. I got bullied and its not an easy situation to get through. But i would suggest wear a little but not too much
    I mean shes going to school not a fashion show lol. Thats what my mum says to me😂😂😂😂

    I saw 12 year old hijabis in full make up and high heels, shopping around Westfield like they're in their 20s, just makes me laugh :lol:

    If she had caterpillars I can sympathise, I have been threading mine since I was 12. If not, then yeah she shouldn't really touch them
    Make up should be minimal at that age
