Survey – Should Children Wear Make-up?

Having read the news this week about the ‘Miss Gllitz Sparkle’ competition it seems that the pre-teen pageants have well and truly landed on our shores. Children as young a 7 months old were taking part in a beauty contest complete with fake-tan, bikinis and make-up.

Although these pageants have given us much voyeuristic amusement over the last few years – watching ‘Toddlers and Tiaras’ and ‘Honey Boo Boo’ – it seems they are now a reality in the UK too. So we ask you – what are your thoughts on make-up and preening for young children?

As usual give us your thoughts, and we’ll give a £20 Escentual voucher to somebody picked at random from the entrants – so maybe you can invest in a multi-purpose product to quicken-up your regime? Good luck!

I started putting on make up when I was 14
