Most little princess wants to be like her mommy and when they see you put on makeup it won’t be long until they look you with their big eyes and ask: “Mommy, can I play with your makeup and be beautiful as you?” This may happen sooner than you think, so choosing a quality kids makeup kit that is safe for kids to play with is very important.

There is nothing wrong with allowing little girls to play with their own makeup sets, as long as they know that they are for.


What to choose, adult makeup or made for kids makeup kit?

I think we can all agree that the days when girls just wanted to play with dolls are gone. Girls love to pretend play, and there is no better toy allowing them to show their creativity than playing with makeup.

Never give your child old makeup that was sitting half used in your drawer for a couple of months because it won’t be good for her skin.

If you really want to share, you can get a natural makeup that will be more gentle on children’s sensitive skin.

But if your daughter wants her own makeup so she can play with her sister, friends or even a doll then consider buying her Kids makeup kit.

Kids makeup kit


3 reasons to buy your kids makeup kit

  1. She will love it! it will be her own little beauty set and not just something she borrowed from her mom.
  2. Kids friendly ingredients! Every kids makeup kit has to pass a series of quality tests. So it is safer and more suitable for their sensitive skin.
  3. It’s fun to play with! Playing with her own kids makeup kit will help your girl express her imagination and feel like a princess all the time.

Be a part of the adventure, but set boundaries

It is natural for little girls to want to explore and try to do things that they observe from grown-ups. Some girls prefer cooking with kitchen sets, some enjoy swaddling and caring for baby dolls, while some enjoy putting makeup on themselves, on their mom or siblings, or even on their dolls.

Want some quality time that will make your special bond even stronger? Tell her to join you in front of your mirror and show her how to put on different types of makeup from her makeup kit.

This will give you a chance to explain to her that it is always necessary to remove the makeup at the end of her pretend play. Show her how to carefully remove the makeup and tidy up the set.

What to do if your girl wants to wear makeup to school, a party? 

Explain to her that everything comes with time and maturity. Talk about your boundaries and what is acceptable for you. Make sure you are present when she gets ready for her trip to school and advise her to start small. Encourage her to show her natural beauty and use makeup with moderation.
