Their good ideas although, they kind of expensive. If your planning on doing this in the future I hope you know that not everyone is rich and some 12 year old's don't just want makeup they want other things such as more things to pass the time with or anything but makeup. If you let your child use makeup, it ruin their self esteem. Because you are making them feel less beautiful. They should NOT be allowed to wear makeup. So if you are planning on doing this again please be more mindful about others. P.S. I'm also not trying to sound like a Karen. Thank you!
