I have tried to teach them that the way they dress on the outside is a reflection of how you feel on the inside. That how you take care of yourself sends a message of how you feel about yourself. You don't need to have the latest fashions to look great, all you need to do is dress neat and clean.
I try to let them develop their own style and let them have fun with how they look and dress. Now that my girls are growing up fast we have been having conversations about makeup in our house.
The girls have some make-up to play with and to experiment with on the weekends, to use for dress ups and dance performances that they chose to put on. They love to do 'up' each other's face and have serious fun with their creations.
Now that they are getting older, I realise that I need to have a makeup plan. I need to have it clear in my mind what age is appropriate for them to start to wear makeup outside of the house. I love the natural beauty that my girls have and I personally want them to keep it for as long as they can.
These pictures just make my heart sing for how sweet these girls are, how much I want to just bottle them up and keep them young and natural looking forever. I can see that they are wanting to be adults, wanting to be so much more grown up and I want them to enjoy the age they are, to be happy to be young and to be free to play and have fun.
