recently i've noticed the little girl watching youtube videos about make-up tutorials. and consequently, she has been bugging me to buy her make-up. it even came to a point that she was bargaining that she will not tag along to somewhere i was going to where she was not allowed on the condition that i will bring make-up when i get back. i knew i was going to give in eventually but i didn't want to go to the mall just for that. so i told her to wait till the weekend when we do go. she bawled over, gave me the bratty attitude which i so hate, did everything to make me buy her but to no avail.
but yesterday, i found these pretty little things at hortaleza. made for girls 8-18 "who are in the advent of many beautiful first experiences."
|the culprits: hypoallergenic pressed powder, lip gloss,|
shimmer cheek blush with sunscreen, sparkle eyeshadow
i know, i know! my girl is way too young for make-up. goodness, she's only turning 6 this april! but i had to humor her. or maybe, humor myself. i can't help but give in. so shoot me, my self-rightoeous, condemning, judgmental readers! ;-) disclaimer: i am not, in any way, advocating, endorsing or justifying make-up use for 5-year olds.
did you shoot me already?
but let me just say that i did lay down the rules. 1) that she can only wear them if she's going to sing or dance in a school presentation. incidentally, her moving up ceremony is coming up next month and she's actually going to dance the doxology! 2) that she absolutely cannot wear it in school or in church. 3) that she washes her face everytime after.
here she is wearing her trial make-up.
on a side note. there was a time when the little girl was told by her teacher that they will have make-up classes on a saturday because of the several typhoons that cancelled classes. during the evening after of one such class, i asked her how her make-up class went, her reply was, hindi naman kami nag-make up e. nag-aral lang kami.
