If I had a dollar for every time my 12 year-old has asked me to take her to RiteAide to buy some makeup I could probably purchase a trip to somewhere warm. While I am not against my daughter wearing make up for special occasions her dad and I are trying to encourage her to share her natural beauty and use Safe makeup for Tweens and Younger Girls.
Plus we think she is too old to add all the chemicals to her skin and body. For Christmas, she received a box of Klee Girls Products, makeup intended for girls ages 8 to 14-years-old. this post about safe makeup for tweens is sponsored by KidStuffPR & Luna Star Naturals.
Safe makeup for Tweens and Younger Girls
The fun, colorful makeup line is made in USA and consists of loose-powder mineral eye shadow (12 shades, MSRP $8.99) in a unique easy-to-use applicator bottle, mineral blush (4 shades, $9.99) and mineral lip gloss with extra moisturizing apple extract and vitamin E (4 shades, $11.99).
For the holidays, she received one of “starter” gift kits with a sampling of Klee Girls products are also available. (MSRP $24.99 and $34.99).
Only natural ingredients and colors are used in Klee Girls’ products. It swears off parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, and artificial colors.
What are Luna Star Naturals
Aiming to provide parents and kids a safe, healthy alternative in a market flooded with unsafe products, Luna Star Naturals introduced natural mineral play makeup kits and face paints to the role play segment several years ago.
Klee Girls is an extension to the popular line for older girls who have outgrown the princess fantasy world but want equally beautiful and clean makeup for their dance recitals, wedding processions or fun spa sessions at sleepovers.
Before she even tried any of the products on, she was complaining that they were too shimmery and not dark enough. Really, do you hear what you are saying? I need to call my mom and ask her about this time when I was 12
. I encouraged her to let me apply a little of the makeup on and see how just a light application of color is perfect for a special occasion.
The key to makeup, in my opinion, is less is more and it should almost look like you don’t have any on. she was surprised as to how the makeup looked once applied and we agreed she could get a lip gloss with a little more shine.
The one color was too dark for every day and the other color was too light for her lip color.
The sparkling powder will be great for her dance performance this spring and the eye makeup and blush she can wear to her cotillion dances.
I think it was a win-win for both mom and daughter on this one. Order the Luna Star Natural kits from www.lunastarnaturals.com or they can call 888-992-4332 for the Klee Girls kits
