We believe every little girl looks her best just the way she is naturally. But that doesn’t mean playing dress-up and experimenting with sparkly princess lip gloss isn’t tons of fun! So if your daughter wants to do her hair like Princess Elsa, or have her nails done like Mommy’s, we say, go ahead, girl!
Why not make sure your little one does her experimenting with safe, trusted, and non-toxic products made just for her? By following our tips for teaching your little one how to use our safe, cute, and easy cosmetics, you can give your daughter confidence and create lasting memories of the two of you playing together.
1. The Natural Look
If your daughter just can’t wait to wear makeup like Mom or her big sister, but you’re not ready to have her prancing around town covered in goop, try showing her how to use just the dry brushes. Help her use your foundation, powder, and blush brushes without actually dipping them in the product. Chances are, if your girl is on the younger side, she’ll be just as happy getting to play this way. Bonus: Let her gaze at her pretty face as she buffs and brushes in the cute Frozen-themed mirror in our Frozen 6 Pack Lip Gloss with Mirror Set.
2. Positives Over Negatives
As adults, we often think about using makeup to minimize our flaws, like spotty skin tone or thin lips. Instead, as you show your daughter how to apply sparkly lipstick or bright nail polish, talk about how the colors will draw attention to her already gorgeous features. For little girls, makeup should be all about fun, experimentation, and self-expression—not hiding anything about their beautiful selves. That’s why so many of our safe, non-toxic Townleygirl cosmetics are designed with special fruit flavors and scents. We want to tickle the senses and inspire creativity.
3. Color Theory for Kiddos
You can personalize the play makeup experience for your daughter by teaching her about how to choose colors to match or highlight her specific features. Does your daughter love her radiant green eyes? How about using the emerald green nail polish from our Elena Hair and Beauty Set to set them off? Does she have a cute little pout? Set it off with the cherry red lip balm in our Avengers Set.
4. Coordinating Hair With Makeup
Don’t you wish you had time in your day to coordinate your hair accessories with your makeup? Make playtime with your daughter into a special occasion by helping her choose hair accessory styles and colors to match her lip gloss and nails. She’ll start wanting to do it every day!
When you and your daughter spend time together playing pretend and encouraging her imagination, you’ll be creating valuable lifelong memories for both of you. Playing with makeup together is a special time between the two of you when she can look like Mommy, her favorite princess, superhero, or cute character. And we think the benefits of teaching her to feel good about how she looks will last for a lifetime.
