The SKIMS founder, 43, opened up about the parenting mistake while promoting her SKKN by Kim launch with Bustle.
The reality star — who dropped the makeup line on Friday — was asked about her thoughts on the Sephora tween drama, where young girls are making a mess of the aisles inside the beauty retailer.
Although Kim revealed that she hasn’t, ‘seen all this Sephora drama,’ she discussed whether her own daughters, North, 10, and Chicago, six, are on that road when it comes to makeup.
What She Said
‘My littlest one’s too little and I don’t let her,’ the TV personality stated. ‘I look back and there’s times when I remember I let my daughter wear a red lip once for Christmas.’
‘Would I do that now? Probably not,’ the businesswoman told the outlet.
It was in 2018
The Kardashians star was referencing to the family’s annual Christmas party that took place back in 2018.
At the time, the beauty had uploaded photos from the lavish bash that she attended with her now ex-husband, Kanye West, and three of their children: North, Saint, eight, and Chicago. Their youngest son, Psalm, four, had yet to be born.
She received backlash for letting a five-year-old North wear the colorful lipstick, and announced shortly afterwards that the shade called ‘Classic Red Lip’ would be launching for consumers.
She Defended her Action Back Then
Kim further defended her decision to allow her daughter to wear the lipstick, and penned on X, formerly known as Twitter, ‘She picked it though! It’s a special occasion!’
The following year, North once again wore a vibrant red tint on her lips while dressing up for Halloween.
‘North is trying to get in on the makeup, but she’s being blocked heavily because her dad has stopped all makeup for her until she is a teenage.’
Now, it’s a BIG Fight
She further explained that, ‘It’s a big discussion, a big fight in the household right now but it is what’s best.’
‘I think as a parent you just learn and figure it out as you go and we realized we didn’t really want her to wear makeup at a young age but she sees her mom putting on lipstick and lip gloss.’
While recently talking to Bustle, Kim gave an update on North’s love for makeup and explained, ‘At least with my oldest daughter, she just likes to dress her friends up and do makeup looks, whether it’s like Pikachu or the Grinch.’
‘I don’t think she’s there yet to where she is going into Sephora and trying on stuff,’ the mother-of-four added.
‘We were at Saks in the makeup department the other night and she tested something but put a heart on her face with it. I’m like, I don’t think that’s really why you use eyeliner.’
Elsewhere in the interview, Kim expressed that when it comes to makeup, her daughters feel that it is simply a ‘fun game to them.’
‘It’s art for them to try to do makeup, which is so fun for me to watch. It’s like they want to play with their friends and do it, and then they want to just wash it right off.’
‘I’m down for the artistry. I think it’s fun when they’re trying it all and expressing themselves,’ the TV personality explained.
