Many parents don't want their daughters wearing makeup because they think their daughters will look older than they actually are.

Others simply want their daughters to wait until they're old enough to understand how to properly apply make-up and take care of their skin.
However, it's normal for girls to want to wear make-up. Even if your daughter has always been a tom-boy, expect her to take an interest before she leaves the tween years behind.
