Some women have fond memories of applying their mother's lipstick as young girls, while others don't begin experimenting with makeup until they're in high school. Most women probably fall somewhere in between.
Though girls will likely develop an interest in products along with their friends, some parents are unsure of how to best approach the issue.
If your daughter decides that it's high time she started applying a little rouge or mascara in the morning, CBSnews.com offered a few tips on how to handle the situation.
The news source suggests discouraging teens from wearing foundation and instead encouraging girls to apply a moisturizer that will guard against sun damage.
For lips, the news outlet recommends a natural-looking product with a soft tint, rather than a heavily-pigmented lipstick.
Young women should also avoid heavy makeup on their eyes, which could look too mature or dramatic for their age.
Products that boast a clean application and won't be irritating, like tubing mascara, may be ideal for teens who lead active lives but wish to begin applying makeup.ADNFCR-3356-ID-19912085-ADNFCR
