The mother-of-three has received criticism in the past for her decisions to allow five-year-old daughter North to wear makeup and straighten her hair.
This time, Kardashian West, 38, has come under fire for permitting North to wear bright red lipstick at Christmas. The make up features prominently in a recent Instagram post, mostly because the rest of the photo is relatively monochrome.
Of course, the intent of the holiday photos – which feature Kim and her husband Kanye West, with their children Chicago, 11 months, and Saint, three – was to wish the world a Merry Christmas.
But with the internet being the internet, people took the chance to comment on Kardashian West’s parenting. Because, as they noted, not only was North wearing lipstick, it was bright red lipstick.

The comments section was quickly filled with people expressing their displeasure at seeing a young child in obvious make up.
For example, “Why does that beautiful girl wear red lipstick,” commented one. “She is enough with her youth.”
Another person complimented the photo, but was concerned North was growing up too fast; “Beautiful family — yet you’re putting them in the spotlight tooo early! Let them be babies, please.”
However, a number of fans also expressed their support – and encouraged others to mind their own business.
