It’s best of week here at we heart this! To celebrate the upcoming New Year, we’ll be bringing you the best and most popular posts of this year as voted upon by the trusty wht team. Since we are a beauty obsessed group, it was no surprise this sweet, little email made the list! ~ wht
Recently Stef and I received the following email forwarded to us from wht contributor, Pamela Irene with this intriguing introduction “This is classic! A letter from my twin nieces (shown above with their sister getting ready for a Justin Bieber concert!) to their mommy – begging for permission to wear makeup.”
While the mode of communication may have changed since we were in school, the trials and tribulations are still the same.
I am putting all of my heart into the message and would really like for you to consider it. Mom, every girl at my school wears mascara. None of them look like hoochies. They only wear a little, and I would love to be able to wear a little along with my fellow girl classmates. We wouldn’t wear a lot just a little and we would check with you every morning and you could tll us if we have too much. We are going into the seventh grade mommy and all girls by this time wear some sort of makeup. Me and Isabella both feel its fair that we can wear it but only if we show u our eyes in the morning. Again we would only wear alittle, and we would be so happy if you let us wear it. We wouldn’t wear anything else except for mascara and lipgloss. So please mom think about this message and email me back. Please mom please think about this. Email me back we would be so happy mom. Please….

Aww, here at wht are all for a teeny bit of makeup for tweens! Some Great Lash mascara and LipSmackers never turned any one into a hoochie!
Just make sure to keep it light, lest you end up looking like Stef and I circa tenth grade…
Oofaa, that’s a lot of makeup! (In our defense, this was a “photo shoot” – we didn’t go out quite so made up in public).
