Whether you’re dressing up for your high school prom or just for your date, teen makeup tips can help bring out your best features and disguise any flaws. You don’t have to be old enough to go to school; makeup doesn’t have to be permanent. And it’s not as hard or expensive as some makeovers make it seem.
With just a little bit of practice, you can bring out your best features and still look like the teen version of yourself. It takes just a few minutes, but it can make a big difference in how you look.
When you’re teen makeup choosing, consider your skin tone, eye color and hair color. A little cheeky blush never hurt anybody! While there are tons of cool, funky blush colors to try, suggest adding an all-natural, light-colored option to your teen makeup palette.
Choose a light-colored shade in the palette that closely resembles your natural blush, or stay away from using darker tones that will make you look washed out and paler.
If you plan to use a liquid foundation, be sure it’s water-based so it won’t clog your pores. Also, pick a sephora-free brand. Sephora, for example, makes several great concealers that are not oil-based.
There are several brands of eyeliners and mascara picks available at most drugstores, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a mascara to match your eye color and your facial shape.
For bronzing makeup, one great option is a nude lip liner, available at your drugstore and in many cosmetics counters. Just don’t get the crayons or lip gloss with extremely strong chemicals in them; they can irritate your lips and cause breakouts.
Some good liners are Revlon’s Age Defying Bronzer and Estee Lauder’s Naked Bronzer. If you don’t want a lip liner, sephora has some excellent non-polarizing matte shadows.
If you want to start wearing makeup right away, don’t forget the most important tip: make sure your eye makeup is waterproof. Even though you may be wearing makeup to bed during the day, the lining and lip gloss should stay on all day, no matter what the weather is like.
So even if you’re staying in at your friend’s house during the weekend, you should still make sure your eyes, lip gloss, and mascara are waterproof. You’ll be glad you did when your first big date comes around.
Don’t forget to use one basic makeup product for all of your face and body makeup. That means keeping the same basic eye makeup and shade throughout your entire complexion. That would leave your cheeks, lips, and chin with one purpose only – to look flawless. Instead, use one BB cream that matches your skin tone as closely as possible and goes a long way toward even out your appearance.
You can also use a concealer along with your BB cream or a foundation that’s the same color as your foundation.
