Kim Kardashian Was Shamed For North's Red Lipstick, but Wait Until You Hear the Backstory

North West may only be 5 years old, but she has a passion for makeup. If her tutorials with Mom, Kim Kardashian-West, didn't give it away, the backstory behind her Christmas party look definitely will. Over the holidays, the Kardashian-Jenner family threw an unforgettable Christmas party — with more fake snow than Southern California has ever seen — but it's North's makeup that caused a ruckus on the internet.

After Kim posted a series of adorable family photos on social media, fans were quick to call out her oldest child's makeup look. Some praised her for her confident poses and larger-than-life personality, but others had some things to say about the 5-year-old's lip color. "Love everything minus North's lipstick please let her be a child," one person wrote. "Beautiful Family. My two year old asks to wear lipstick every day. We indulge her and tell her she's pretty. Stop making a big deal of nothing," another added.

While the decision to let her daughter wear red lipstick does appear to have the internet divided, Kim chimed in on Twitter to explain the situation. Not only did her daughter pick out the lipstick herself for the "special occasion," the mom-of-three said, "it might just be a new Classic Red Lip I have launch VERY soon." Read on to see the family's sweet Christmas photos and more about the red lipstick.
