Q: My eight-year-old flower girl loves makeup and wants to wear it for the wedding. Is this appropriate?

A: Yes, if you keep it low key. To make her feel special without looking silly, toss a neutral blush stick or cheek shimmer and some translucent lip gloss into a small purse and give it to her as a present a few days before the wedding. Make sure that her mom (get her approval first) or another adult uses a light hand to apply the makeup.
