"Kids shouldn't wear makeup, I strongly feel that way," she tells the magazine, though she admits Olive will probably play with makeup at some point. "You should be a kid for as long as possible. I think when you start getting in your teens, then all bets are off, and you should just play, play, play. And figure out what kind of woman you want to be -- the training wheels are off. So kids in makeup, no. Starting in your teen years, absolutely go for it, and start to discover who you are."
I have to agree. My daughters are 6 and 8 and love to play with makeup. They love to dress up apply the old fuchsia lipsticks I toss from gift-with-purchase goody bags. They wear blue eyeshadow with pride (I draw the line at mascara) and aren't afraid to pile on the pink blush. But that's for play. At home. Not for public view, a la Suri Cruise. Or Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. Or Coco Arquette.
What's your rule: Do you cave and let your kids have at it when it comes to cosmetics?
