Flower girl makeup?

Is anyone paying for hair and makeup for their flower girls? In my opinion I think makeup on flower girls looks weird ... maybe because they’re still young

    My HMUA does the flowergirl for like $25. So I'll see if she wants to have her hair done. I don't know about makeup though I think it's a little extra for a 6 year old. Maybe I'll ask her mom how she feels about her having some lip gloss and maybe some blush.

    MY MUA offered to just do some blush and lipgloss for the FG. I think so long as it isn't like toddlers and tiaras style, but is kept as natural as possible and the parents approve that its fine and is a nice way to help her feel included.


    It also depends on the age to me though. 3 years or older is fine, anything under that is too young.

    I think make up is fine as long as it is super minimal and natural looking. Getting ready like all of the other women in the bridal party would probably mean a lot to her.

    No way. My niece is out FG and she will only be three. Definitely not doing makeup on her and my sister will do her hair.

    Maybe like a clear lipgloss or chapstick. A light brush of blush of you can pretend to put make up on her to make her feel part of the party with the girls. Even nail polish if shes old enough. Or a clear coat.

    Depends on the age of a flower girl. My flower girl is going to be 2 so no makeup. But my ring bearer my middle daughter is going to 8 and my oldest daughter who is 10 is walking down the aisle and I will be putting makeup on them flight makeup

    My niece will be 11,but will be a bridesmaid, not a flower girl. I'm having hers done (minimally) , so she feels included with the rest of us.

    I had my nieces (6, 10, 11, and 14) in the wedding. They all had their hair done, but no makeup. The older two put on a little blush, mascara, and lip gloss, but full blown makeup is too much in my opinion.

    You could just put some setting/finishing powder on the flower girl - and some tinted chapstick or lipgloss.


    I remember when I was little my mother would put her translucent setting powder on me and my older sister before church - it made us feel so special and grown up - we loved it!

    My daughter was 3 and the flower girl in our wedding. By then she had already been in multiple dance shows where she had to wear makeup. She had pro hair done, and I did her makeup- minimal mascara, lip gloss and a little bit of blush. That was way less than she wore for the dance shows she performed in.

    I agree, makeup on a flower girl might be a little much. We didn't have a flower girl so we didn't have to worry about paying for anything but maybe paying for the hair would be a nice gesture.

    My fgs will be 10 by my wedding. I am letting the moms deal with if they want their daughters to wear makeup or get their hair done. One will probably have makeup and the other probably won't and I will not push it on way or the other.

    My FG is my DD. She is 6. I am putting a bit of blush and pink lip gloss on her.

    It's a no for me. The girls will get their hair done but absolutely no make up. They will be 3 and 8. It's not needed.

    My daughter will be 9 by the time of our wedding. I’m only having her hair done as I personally think she’s too young for makeup. Maybe ask their parents and see how they feel about it.

    Aren’t the norms around this so interesting? I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup until 18, and when I said other parents allow it, my mother told me exactly how she felt about those other parents. Haha, it’s so fun reflecting on that, and I don’t share her view but trickles of it have remained. What’s your relationship to makeup? Is it about play and fun and creation? Or is it about normalcy and “looking good” ? That likely defines a lot of folks’ opinions.

    My flower girl will be 2, so no. Their young and beautiful already!! However, I do have a Jr bridesmaid (she is 10) that will be having her hair fixed, and a little make up. (Powder base and mascara and lip gloss)

    I hadn't thought about it, but it would be a great way to say "Thank you!" to the flower girl(s). I can already imagine how happy mine would be if she got to wear a little blush and lip gloss. I'm sure it would make her feel important and a part of the group. My other flower girl will be younger so she won't want/need any.

    I’m gonna do hair and makeup on the flower girl : just some eyeshadow that’s shimmery and lipgloss and maybe some blush.
