Parent-approved Beauty Picks for Kids

December 7, 2018

Has your little one been asking to put on makeup or nail polish just like mommy? We might slather this stuff on our own skin, but we often think twice about letting our kids use it, especially if they’ve never worn any makeup, ever. So, we did some searching and found a few great all-natural parent-approved beauty products for littles (but not too little) that are safe to apply, easy to take off and always fun to play with. —Jennifer Cox

nail polish. We love SHUSHU’s wide range of peel-off nail polishes, all made using environmentally friendly water-based ingredients and free of toxic chemicals. There are loads of cool-kid colours, such as Cloud In The Sky Mia, Charming Pink Charlotte and Sweet Lollipop Riley (maybe you can even find your child’s name!).

nail polish again. Piggy Paint comes in fun scents like Wacky Watermelon, Sassy Strawberry and Banana Besties, and it’s as natural as mud (hence the name). All nail polishes are non-toxic and odourless (they carry kid-friendly nail polish remover, too).

lip gloss. What little girl wouldn’t want to put on some chocolate mint, cinnamon smooch or vanilla plus lip gloss? Princess Lip Shimmers from Pure Anada are tinted and flavoured with natural ingredients (they’re actually safe enough to eat!).

makeup kits. Klee kids natural mineral play makeup kits have no parabens, dyes, talc or synthetic fragrances, and include a host of items for all-around fun makeup play: mineral eyeshadow, blush, shimmer lip balms, plus a brush and applicator. It’s a safe way to get all dolled up!

make-your-own. There’s nothing more fun than making your very own nail polish colour, and now you and your child can DIY it together with the Colour Creation Kit from Suncoat. All the colours are water-based and peelable, completely VOC free, odourless, non-toxic and safe, and with the three primary colours plus the white and the black, the polish possibilities are endless!
