50, that's when you actually need to hide all the wrinkle lines.

My daughter began tentatively experimenting with make-up in the seventh grade, then quickly lost interest. She's now a sophomore and wears it only occasionally. I hardly ever wear make-up. In fact, I'm sure everything in my make-up bag is long past the point of needing discarded.

I started wearing eye makeup when I was in seventh grade, at 13. All the girls wore it. Of course I had no idea how to wear it and wore all of it while winging it. I took the makeup to school and put the makeup on before class in the bathroom with other kids. Mom hadn't a clue.

Sometime after about fifteen, I stopped during summer, and as I got older I wore less and less. But back in the sixties all but a few really sad looking girls wore lots of makeup.

I love being old enough not to care what people think.

It should be very natural and light application.
My mom took my shopping when I started middle school (sixth grade, in my district), and let me pick out makeup that I was, for the first time, allowed to wear to school. It consisted of Clearasil, some matte face powder, and Bonne Bell flavored lip gloss. Also Love's Baby Soft perfume.

The funny thing is, at 38, it's come full circle, and minus the Clearasil, that's pretty much what I wear now. Although I've upgraded from Love's Baby Soft to Philosophy Pure Grace, but it's really the same concept, there. Powdery freshness.

I find that makeup is more likely to accentual wrinkles than not. I wear less and less as I get older, because makeup settling into fine lines is just not flattering. Moisturizing and getting enough sleep does more than most cosmetics, for me.

Women in their early 50s tend to have very saggy bags under their eyes so they are likely to shadow it or color it to hide it. It's even harder for men because we don't wear make up so we either put on glasses or just try to keep our eyes open as wide as possible to not look so baggy.

I would say high school age, but maybe sooner if they want. I would say elementary is to young for makeup in general. Others maybe wouldnt wear till later in life.
