While Kanye West isn’t the kind of father who always helps out when he’s needed, he is the kind of father who definitely wants his children to play by the rules. As a matter of fact, Kim Kardashian recently admitted that she sometimes gets in trouble with her husband for allowing their daughter North West to wear makeup.
As many fans have noticed, little six-year-old North West likes to wear makeup in a lot of her mother’s social media posts. But apparently, her father isn't a fan of this whatsoever. In fact, the reality television star has said that Kanye has flat out banned allowing North or any of their other kids to wear makeup on social media. In addition to North, the couple have three other children: Saint, three; Chicago, one; and 4-month-old Psalm West.
Speaking to People Magazine, the celebrity mother said that while she had no problem allowing her daughter experiment and get creative with makeup behind the scenes, Kanye doesn't like it. In fact, he got downright mad when he saw a social media post of his little girl wearing heavy eyeshadow and a dark color of lipstick. Kim was at the KKW x Winnie makeup collaboration dinner in New York City, New York when she made her comments.
“I’d let her wear — you know, she has a little red for Christmas — I’d let her wear a red lip, or I’d let her do one pop of something. I’d let her, if she’s wearing a black dress, a black lip,” Kim explained.
Unfortunately, Kanye expressed his opinions about the matter and told his wife that a six-year-old should not be wearing that kind of makeup. Kim admitted that she got in trouble for allowing North to wear a black shade of lipstick and a black dress at a Christmas party last year.
If that weren’t enough, Kim has also gotten plenty of criticism for filming her daughter in a clip where it appeared as though she was contouring the little girl’s features. She also featured another clip of North modeling bright red lipstick.
It didn’t take very long for Kim to realize that a lot of people were attacking her and her parenting skills in the commenting section of her Instagram account. She hit back at her critics by writing, “Relax Mom Shamers, It’s coming off in a few mins. I just needed a bribe to get out of the door … you feel me?!?!?!”
So it looks like North won't be wearing makeup again anytime soon...perhaps. But once she's old enough, she could very well get as into makeup as her mother and some of her famous aunts are. But we're not going to know that for a few years, so only time will tell.
