When Odessa was about thirteen months old, she found my purse on the floor, opened my makeup bag, and held the eye lash curler up to her eyes. This was a huge changing point for me. No thirteen month old should know what to do with an eye lash curler. Don't get me wrong, it was adorable, but I realized then that I don't want my girls introduced to makeup. Not at all (wishful thinking, I know), but especially at such a young age. It was overwhelming to think that I, as their mother, will play such a huge role in the way they feel about themselves and their bodies. I decided at that point, the makeup had to go. Both for me, and my girls. 

I don't want them growing up feeling like women need makeup to be beautiful. The little bit of makeup I owned went in the garbage that day and I felt better. If they want to wear it when we feel they are old enough, I'll let them. But, as their role model, I want them to know it's not necessary.
