To think make up on a 22 month old is yuck?

On Facebook being made up, blusher, eye shadow, lipstick to make her beautiful for granddads party!

What is this teaching a little girl who really still is just a baby?

Or an I being judgy and unreasonable to think it a real shame that a baby can't be a baby?

It's not yuk. It's bloody revolting. Who in their right minds would do that?

Definitely yuck.

Fine if she was just having a play with mummy's stuff and they took a photo (no different to other face paints if just mucking about). But as actual preparation for a wear in public...just no.

Depends how attractive the child is.

I can't bear this. Or pierced ears at that age either. Reminds me of those awful beauty pageants for children.

Yanbu. I really dislike make up on kids. A bit of lip Gloss ffor an older child playing dress up is fine imo. Anymore than that is too much.

Are you fucking kidding me? Boke

phantomnamechanger Mon 17-Feb-14 18:23:32

yuk! what was she dressed in to go with the make up?

drnoitall Mon 17-Feb-14 18:25:02

Oh get over yourself. What difference does it make it you.
Each to their own.

If she was just playing with mummy's make up in the house then no problem but not to make her 'beautiful' for a party.

Surely at 22 months she's beautiful just as she is?

It's one thing for a child to play with makeup and take a photo - fine.

But to put makeup on a child, as if they were a grown woman? Wrong. Wrong on many levels.

YANBU, it's revolting. Makes me feel sick.

Never too early to start IMO

1944girl oh yeuk and sounds very dodgy. yanbu op.

22 month old ds had lipstick on today. I don't think it made him look more beautiful though! Are you sure it wasn't just playing?

CommanderShepard Mon 17-Feb-14 19:05:04

DH had to scrub 21 mo DD's face before nursery this morning as she'd got into my makeup and drawn herself a particularly fine beard blush

Actual makeup though, for "prettifying" purposes, is horrible. And really, really sad.

Charlie97 Mon 17-Feb-14 19:10:42

It 100 per cent was not playing! Mum was applying make up with the quote "making xxxx beautiful for party!"

It is very very sad!

It's disturbing, actually.
Not just revolting.
