Young girls enjoy watching their Mom put on makeup and often want to wear some themselves. I know from personal experience that my 3 year old daughter is very interested in makeup and asks if she can have some every time I put some on. I always oblige by sweeping the blusher brush (without blush) across her cheeks and letting her put on some of my all-natural lip balm. However, I know there will come a time, probably sooner than later, that she wants to play with her own makeup. Therefore, I have done a bit of research into the products available for young girls.
A quick search of the internet found that there are many options for children’s makeup kits, but I am a picky mother and not interested in just any old makeup. I was determined to find an all-natural makeup kit that matched my own makeup philosophy of not putting potentially harmful chemicals on my skin. My search led me to a company called Luna Star founded by the mother of 2 girls. Allison Reedy was determined to create a line of high-quality organic makeup that could be used by young girls for play up to tweens who are really starting to use makeup on a daily basis.
Luna Stars line of makeup contain natural ingredients that are BPA and paraben-free, contain no artificial coloring, are hypo-allergenic and are not tested on animals. The mineral makeup kits come in a variety of color combinations to fit your child’s personality. They are easy to apply with the included applicators. The mineral makeup is also easy to remove with a bit of soap and water.
Standard makeup kits include 2 eyeshadow colors, one blush and one shimmer lip balm. The standard kits come in six different color combinations and retail for around $20 each. Deluxe kits come in two different color combinations. Each kit includes 2 eyeshadow colors, 2 shimmer lip balms, one blush and 2 water-based, peel-off nail polishes and retail for around $27 each.
I am glad to know that Luna Stars is available and I will feel much better about my young daughter playing with a makeup kit knowing that it is all-natural!
