Though she’s gotten flack for some of her parenting choices — Kim Kardashian has always been a doting mother. It’s clear that despite her intense schedule that includes Keeping Up with the Kardashians, her brands — KKW Beauty, KKW Fragrance, and Skims as well as her legal/activism work — the starlet puts her babies first.
Kardashian shares four children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm, with her rapper husband, Kanye West. Though the Skims founder often showcases her adorable little ones on social media — we only see snippets of them on KUWTK.
Though Kardashian has admittedly been more lax with some of her parenting rules in the past –recently, she and Kanye West have become a lot stricter with their children. One of their number one rules is that their eldest daughter — six-year-old North can no longer wear makeup.
Kanye West banned North from wearing makeup
In the past –Kardashian caught a ton of flack for allowing North to wear lipsticks and a little makeup. Many fans were alarmed that the tiny fashionista was too young to be so focused on her appearance. With his new walk with God — West put a stop to it all.
“She loves makeup, but her dad won’t let her wear it…I think he had it, he changed all the rules,” Kardashian revealed in a Septemeber 2019 interview with E! “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. Kylie would give her all of these lip kits, so I kind of got in trouble for that. So, it’s now no more makeup.”
Kim Kardashian had a ‘big fight’ with Kanye West over North’s makeup ban
Initially, when West declared he no longer wanted to see his children in makeup before they were older, Kardashian disagreed. She revealed to the Australian talk show The Sunday Project that she and West had a ‘big fight’ over it.
After all, the makeup mogul had endured mom-shaming and harassment over allowing North to wear eye makeup and lipstick for years. In October 2018 one follower commented under a post of North wearing makeup, “Stop letting that baby wear makeup. And to make it worse, it’s two shades too light. Help her embrace her natural beauty and melanin as a young princess should.”
Kim Kardashian now feels that kids shouldn’t wear makeup
Since her big fight with her husband — Kardashian has had a change of heart about kids wearing makeup. “About the makeup thing, I don’t think a kid should really be wearing makeup either, you know,” she told The Sunday Project. “I think sometimes if you don’t understand a rule, it is good to learn and ask your friends. In my case [I asked] my siblings what they would do. [We] bounce ideas around and develop a way that we’re going to parent and rules that we have. And we always have to stay aligned.”
In addition to makeup — Kardashian and West also allow very limited screen time for their children and the KKW Beauty founder has also dialed back her own sexy image.
