summary:

Little glamour queens will love playing with mom’s makeup and hairbrushes.

If your little girl likes to watch you put on makeup or style your hair, treat her to a special afternoon of beauty. Consider purchasing some inexpensive makeup just for these mother-daughter occasions so that you can preserve your everyday products. Sit side by side in the salon (bathroom) applying eye shadow, blush, and lipstick. Let your daughter put makeup on you as well as on herself. While she is having fun, she is also honing her hand-eye coordination skills. So try not to correct her technique — even if your chin winds up covered with lipstick.

Once your faces are on, head to the hair section of your salon to get coiffed. Offer your “stylist” some brushes, combs, and hair clips. Finally, finish the beauty regimen with a manicure and pedicure with a nail polish colour of your child’s choice.
