Dear M Girl,
I'm almost 13 and I really want to start wearing makeup. I don't want to wear a lot -- I just want to start with a little. My mom and dad say I'm too young and I'm trying to convince them that I don't want to wear it for show, I want to wear it because it makes me feel nice. How do I convince my parents to let me wear makeup?

I know you want to wear makeup, but try putting yourself in your parents' shoes. It's really hard for them to realize that you're growing up! If they don't want you wearing makeup every day, ask your mom if she can help you put makeup on before big parties or special events. It would be a great compromise and a fun opportunity to bond with your mom! She'll show you how to put it on correctly and you won't end up looking like a scary clown! Keep in mind, though, that you don't need makeup to look nice, you're beautiful just the way you are! Let me know what your parents think!
