We've made it pretty clear how much we stan North West. Time and time again, she proves why she's so much cooler than her celebrity mom. But Kim Kardashian is here to let us know that she's the boss around these parts. And although she allows North to express herself through makeup, there's one very important rule.

You won't be looking crazy on Kim K's watch.

It’s no secret that North West has an affinity for makeup.

But when your mom is the founder of KKW Beauty, what other option do you have?

And how could we forget about her beauty mogul auntie Kylie?

Basically, North is just as obsessed with makeup as we are.

So it was no surprise when mama Kim Kardashian revealed to Refinery29 that North sometimes has makeup parties.

"I already know North is into makeup for sure," she said. "She had friends over this weekend, and some of her girlfriends came, and they were just all in her room, giving themselves makeovers. I was like, OK, she’s really, really into makeup."

"When companies send makeup and I have a lot, I’ll give it to her."

But when you're the daughter of someone as iconic as Kim K, you can't just apply makeup willy nilly.

Kardashian, who had her first makeup class at the age of 14, said she's taking the lessons her father, Robert, taught her and applying them to the way she monitors North's makeup use.

"I remember when I was 14, my dad got me a makeup class for Christmas. And I went to makeup school. He was like, 'I don't want you girls looking crazy. If you’re gonna wear makeup, I want you to learn to do it in the right way.'"

Do those same rules apply to North?

"That was really helpful," Kardashian says. "And I think I will take a cue from that. I’m definitely going to set guidelines."

Just a few weeks ago, North had a full-on meltdown because her makeup canvas, Kardashian, had the nerve to move mid-application.

But don't worry, North won't be rocking a full beat anytime soon. 

"I don't think she should wear lashes or too dark of a lipstick. So I want her to express herself, but I want her to be appropriate, too."
