When I have kids, I would want them to stay away from makeup for as long as possible so that they can keep their beautiful skin the way it is !

I think is fine for any child to play around with their parents' make-up and play dress up at any age. I do not think, however, any child should be bought make-up, or be dressed in make-up to go out in until they are at least 15.
I would never prevent my child girl/boy from playing with make-up. Makeup for kids is about exploring, playing, creativity, experimentation. I use to love putting on my Mum's red lippy and heels...and I still love putting on makeup. 3 or 4 yrs and up is fine. As long as they are past the stage of wanting to eat it. :)
I would say 15, for eye lash tinting, looks natural.

The rest at say 16-17.

Not before, I feel it just makes them want to have it sooner, than later.

Whenever they feel like it but within reason and not wearing it in public till mid teens
Even without trying, most of the people end up ingesting lipstick. Most of them contain lead. Lead is a neurotoxin and can be dangerous even at small doses.
I would keep my kids away from atleast lipstick. Other things, they can play with it but then not too much.
