View in slideshow Girls will be girls. Whether you feel fine letting your daughter indulge in a mani-pedi from time to time or would rather her keep her young skin fresh and product-free, at some point you may have to just give in. Maybe it's Miley, maybe she's watched you apply mascara and lipstick before a dinner date, or maybe girly girls just love gloss. Most of us try to keep the cosmetic rituals out of our children's daily routine (well, unless you are a pageant parent), but there are ways to let them indulge the urge without overdoing. Check out these sensible suggestions for healthy, no-mess ways to help your budding beautician experiment with the idea of makeup.

If you only impart one beauty secret on your child, make it daily sunscreen use! I like California Baby SPF 30 ($21). If you have trouble sitting your tot down for sunscreen application, let her use a stick on herself and then rub in the excess. If your little darling watches you apply moisturizer and wants to use your fancy stuff, get her a bottle of the mild California Baby Super Sensitive Everyday Lotion ($12).

The good news is sets like this Hello Kitty Puff set offer airy "makeup" that's heavy on the glittery packaging, but mostly looks like clear gloss when it's applied. Ultimately, your little makeup artist will pretend she's putting on makeup, but her teacher won't be able to see it. Hello Kitty Puff 5-pc.

Hair or toothbrush time provides a nice opportunity to look in the mirror, but reflect on less superficial attributes such as her strong teeth, healthy skin, and how much she looks like daddy.

While the blue-eyed brunette is quite the uptown girl and we wouldn't be surprised if she had her own manicurist, any lil lady can get this celebaby look with a bit of help from her mama. Stick to a toxin-free polish, as tots put their fingers in their mouths, and a thin brush is best when coating tiny nails.
