Before high school, more girls are using cosmetics than before — so the concern over kiddie spa parties may be warranted. But compared to just a few years ago, high schoolers are wearing less makeup. Experts from The NPD Group, which researched how girls use cosmetics, suggest that the initial thrill of using makeup wears off by the time the teen years roll around. "You've got girls asking, 'Do I really need this?'" says NPD beauty analyst Karen Grant. "Maybe it's not that exciting anymore because they've been using it since they were younger."
