I agree with you on the eek of little girls in make up but I think you can include them in the prettification as long as it’s done thoughtfully and age appropriate.

For example I always wince when I look at little girls being made to sit still for a long time while someone does something complicated and painful with their hair while someone yells at them to ‘behave’.  But if you go with a simpler hairstyle that doesn’t pull on her hair much etc. I think it’d be fun for her. 

I think children should not be made to live the beauty=pain thing.  But fussing and cuteness is still good and I think a very different thing. 

So for me lipstick is fine for the girl because it’s quick and easy if she wants it but eyeliner or something where it’s uncomfortable is out.

I agree with you.  We aren’t having a Flower Girl, so it doesn’t really apply to us, but I would not want to see a little girl getting her make up done.  I could see doing some curls in her hair and pulling it back in a clip or something, but not much more.  If she seems jealous that the “big girls” are getting make up, you could get her some flavored lipgloss that’s made for little kids or something, or offer to paint her nails, but that should be all…

Nah…I am going to the Justice of the Peace but planning my sister’s wedding. She wants my niece to have her hair pulled back into an afro-puff and we MIGHT slap on some lipgloss. I just think kids should look like kids…that’s what makes them cute.
