Can you remember how old you were when you first starting experimenting with lipstick and blusher? A new survey has found today, the average age for girls to start wearing makeup is 11 years old. That's three years younger than any generation before.

Escentual.com asked 1,000 women younger members of their families used makeup for the first time. Unsurprisingly, 89 thought this was the biggest risk from younger girls starting to use makeup."

As well as peer pressure, TV shows were blamed for young girls wanting to look more grown-up.

So - what's the age when mum's wont mind their daughters borrowing their lipstick? "Most women thought it was acceptable for girls start using some makeup by 13, and that by 15 it was acceptable for girls to be wearing makeup regularly in public," says Leslie.

Is 15-years-old the right age for girls to buy beauty products? Or, with a lifetime of moisturisers and makeup ahead of them, is this still too young? Let us know your thoughts @MyDailyUK.
