Special Honors

The Claires Candy Collection Mega Case This kit, packaged in a mini briefcase covered in the images of goodies, is both whimsical and functional. With 15 lip glosses and a cotton candy lip balm, it will have your little one smelling as precious as she looks. It also has skin gems, giving users an extra way to express themselves, and a toe separator to use while applying the included polish. claires.com

The Lakeshore Makeup & Hairstyling Doll If you don't want your children applying makeup to their own skin, this kit is ideal since it comes with a doll for kiddos to practice makeovers on. Its skin easily wipes clean, so when your kids are finished with or unhappy with one look, they can rapidly wash it away and try a new one. It also has various hair accessories, giving kids a chance to try their hand at a variety of beauty skills. lakeshorelearning.com

Editor's Notes

November 11, 2019:

The type of makeup kit that will be right for your children will depend entirely on their stage of development and play style. We rounded up a quality selection of cosmetic sets — both real and those simply made of toys resembling makeup — so that cuties of any age can find something on this list.

If your munchkins are still too young to be trusted with the real powders and liquids, but you need to give them something to play with so they stop grabbing at your expensive products and spilling them everywhere, one of our faux makeup kits is ideal. The Make it Up Glamour Girl is an extensive collection of toys in cheery pink and purple hues that should capture a kiddo's attention for a while. The Little Cosmetics Essential has compacts full of what looks like real glitter, cover-up, eyeshadow, and more, but is completely fake and mess-free. The PixieCrush Pretend Deluxe has a faux spray-on foundation and a cute polka dot carrier with a handle to make your young fashionista feel like a professional beautician.

We did our best to insure the real makeup that can be applied to the skin is tasteful and safe enough for youngsters. For example, the Tokia Portable has blush in a subtle tone and the IQ Toys Vogue Me has a mascara wand and lip liner, for a truly grownup experience, but all of its makeup can be easily washed off. We did remove the Princess All-In-One Deluxe to make room for the Townley Girl Hasbro My Little Pony. While both offer vibrant shades of makeup in a box with slide-out trays and a mirrored lid, we felt that the latter featured more classic cartoons that kids will be drawn to.

Now all your cutie needs is a kid's vanity and she's ready to play pretend, or get some practice in with real makeup at home before she starts wearing it out of the house.
