Little girls wanting to play with makeup is nothing new, and North West is no exception. However, her most recent interaction with lipstick has Twitter up in arms. During the annual Kardashian holiday party, Kim Kardashian let North wear a lipstick shade that many think is far too sexual for someone so young.
Though Kardashian says North's look is all in anticipation for the next KKW Beauty release, a whole lot of people just aren't having it. Thoughts?
It's no secret that North West loves to play with makeup like a lot of little girls do.
Twitter erupted into a firestorm of criticism from people who argued that North is too young for the look she wore.
Some had an issue with the color itself, as red has long been considered a hypersexual lipstick shade; others claimed that it was wrong for her to be wearing makeup at all. As a result, arguments ensued over Twitter feeds everywhere.
So whether you're for or against North West in makeup, the conversation about makeup's ties to sexualization is still something that needs to continue.
What do you think? Was North too young to wear the lipstick? Even if it was for a makeup launch?
This issue is far too complex to have just one answer.
