Make up set for pre teen

My 7 yo is desperate for her own make up. Putting aside the fact no 7 year old girl needs to wear make up, I remember how thrilled I was to get my own grown up make up set from my grandparents at about the same age - loads of eyeshadows and lipsticks and blusher with proper brushes etc in a presentation box. Oh it was amazing. And before I feel awful about allowing my parents to do the same for my dd, as a grown up I barely ever wear make up so it clearly didn't ruin me! (Hmmm - I appreciate I am feeling defensive!)

Anyway I want a nice box set for dd from my mum, needs to be orderable online (John Lewis for example), that is suitable for young skin so nothing abrasive.

Any ideas for sets of for brands I should look at - want it to be nice and good enough not to damage skin but silly to spend huge amounts of money on what will be used just for dressing up at home.

Try the boots 3 for 2 Xmas range op. I got my DD (10) lovely set from there last year.

Also looking for ideas for my ten year old sister

I would probably put together some bits from Body Shop.
A little eye palette, some glitter in a tiny star (my DD1 was swooning over this recently) and the lip stain which can also be a blush. And some makeup remover- time to learn good habits!
There are 40 percent off vouchers round at the moment.

I think this would be perfect but have never heard of them - anyone used them? How is the quality?

how about makeup revolution? they sell cheap Urban Decay’s NAKED dupes called Iconic,
they seem to get very good reviews.

We bought this for dsd last Christmas, she was 8. She also adores it, it doesnt seem to be harsh on her skin at all, but she appears to be very good at using it in moderation.

She loves having her own makeup set.

I think the one MrsMarvel linked would be better for dress up play, there seems to be more colour variety in there. Or do I mean more garish colours grin? The other is a bit too grown up looking imo.

I don’t think I’d worry about quality too much, she’s hardly going to be bothered about how long it lasts or the ease of blending at 7. I’m sure as long as she feels suitably mermaid/popstar-like when she’s playing with it she’ll be happy!

Another vote for revolution from Superdrug! My dd loves it and my friends dd is a make up artist and has used it on super models. Apparently it’s more about the brushes than the product! I wouldn’t know as I am still slapping g on foundation with my fingers!!!

Sing I've just bought that one you linked to. I didn't want lots of garish colours for 9YO DD who's just starting out practising with make up, and this looked perfectly subtle. I liked that it had brushes included, had a selection of products rather than just a palette, and came in it's own handy case for her to keep all her makeup bits together. I've also bought a clear mascara and very light pink lip gloss from Body Shop. Thanks for the thread.

This is amazing, they also do blush palettes and lip kits.

Remember to buy brushes.
