My daughter is 13. She goes to A grammar where they are encouraged to be mature and sensible and so she really is very mature and sensible for her age (compared to my son who was an eejit at that age!)

Anyway her 3 best pals wear a little make up at weekends and I have given in and said she could too. Justascara lip gloss and concealer over spots. Now her mates all wear foundation but I have said no to full foundation and said she could use tinted moisturiser. Have u any recommendations of one I could get for her ease. TIA

I think take her to a make up counter for a trial. Benefit is a good place to start. It's good quality, lasts for ages & the packaging is appealing, young & fresh. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
