Raising The Queens Of Tomorrow: How Makeup Can Empower Your Little Girl
“She has a way with words, red lipstick and making an entrance” –Kate Spade
When you’re a soldier riding into battle, extra armor will always make you feel more confident. Support from your fellow soldiers will as well. Today, when our little girl goes out into the world to make their mark, it is a similar experience.
We teach women to make themselves smaller, to sit in a certain way, to speak in softer tones, all of this to stick to the idea of ‘femininity’.
Saying that makeup creates self-esteem issues when for some, it can be war paint, is contradictory. This is because women should be allowed to adorn themselves with any armor they choose when they fight their battles to rule the world every day.
As parents, we should be supportive of their efforts to stand out in the world because to raise queens of tomorrow, we need to teach them to find comfort in the spotlight.
As parents, we have to let our children experience things and follow what they love. Granted, your child’s school may not allow her to wear makeup but occasionally allowing her to let loose that creativity is a good idea.
Being able to control your appearance is an empowering feeling. Not only this but wearing, make-up because it makes them feel good is an expression of confidence. It allows them to put their best foot forward.
For girls with a lot of brothers, it can be a form of identification; for women who wish to enhance their beauty, it can be the perfect tool and it can be a big part of your children’s creative growth.
Makeup is so much more than coloring your face. Make-up is an art and their face a canvas. Letting them feel like they can color their nails orange and put on a pink lip crayon allows them to feel in control of their bodies. This control is a necessary step in growing as a person.
Makeup like all other art has the power to heal. A lot of people give up make-up later in life or find basic essentials that they like to use but your child can do so much better. Imagine your daughter becoming a hit at the next Halloween because of her exceptional makeup skills; or your son being part of the school’s play and in-charge of costumes and makeup because he was allowed to develop a talent, free of prejudice.
Even in the real world, just the way a specific color brings to your eyes or the right dress makes you feel good about yourself, makeup allows you to choose how to look and control how to feel.
As parents, we can make sure our little ones begin their learning with safe makeup products. At ShuShu Kids we have kid’s safe makeup kits that are non-toxic, eco-friendly and safe for children’s use. So why not gift your young girl her first makeup set?
