So let’s say, hypothetically, that your four-year old has begun begging for a play makeup set. Some parents would react with a firm but gentle, “No stinking’ way, sweet cheeks,” but, I can understand that sentiment – children grow up fast enough without the aid of adult trappings.
In the end, whether or not to let a child use makeup for playtime is a personal decision for parents to look for “healthier” cosmetics for their kids. Moms may choose mineral makeup – foundation, blush, and other products made from finely ground minerals. Dermatologists often say that mineral makeup is healthier because it doesn’t have the preservatives and fragrances found in most other makeup products. People whose skin is irritated by those ingredients may have fewer problems with mineral formulations.
I personally like to use MAC’s face and body foundation on children for photo shoots because its water based and doesn’t have any harsh additives in it. This foundation provides low-to-medium buildable coverage and a flawless, natural satin-shine finish. It’s Skin conditioning, water-resistant and long-wearing but, ideally you want to go for a product like the one mentioned below.

Girls love makeup. It’s a fun way to play. But traditional cosmetics and face paints contain synthetic dyes, fragrances, and ingredients that can irritate a child’s delicate skin. That’s why Luna Star created, a mom-made collection of colorful mineral powders, organic lip shimmers, and water-based, peel-off nail polish that offers a safe, gentle, healthy alternative little girls!
