Kim Kardashian gets major backlash for allowing North to wear lipstick in new family photo

Kim Kardashian is facing backlash after posting a family photo in which her 5-year-old daughter is wearing lipstick.

The reality star and wife of rapper Kanye West is well used to controversy and being called out online and it seems that not even her Christmas photo is an exception.

Posted yesterday, the photo also features Kim's other two children, Saint, 3, and 11-month-old Chicago.

Merry Christmas 🎄

In the festive family snap, five-year-old North can be seen wearing bright red lipstick.

Many fans and followers of the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star thought that it was totally inappropriate of the mum to let her small child wear makeup and weren't holding their opinions back.

"Now this is a lovely photo of all of you except why put makeup and red lipstick on your child? Let them be kids while they are young and to accept who and what they look like without it first. The time for that will come later and fast before you know it. Just a thought.."

Kim, on the other hand, felt that it was a complete overreaction and that her young daughter was just dressing up like a lot of little girls do.

"She picked it though! It’s a special occasion!"

What do you think? Is five too young for lipstick or was North just having fun playing in her mother's makeup?
