There is no question that being a teenager is hard. One thing that does not have to add unneeded pressure to an already hectic life is makeup application. The following makeup tips for teenagers cover a multitude of problems. Better yet, these makeup tips will help in avoiding common mistakes made by young women learning to use makeup for the first time.
Makeup Tip #1: Building Healthy Skin
Cleansing and moisturizing skin every morning and night are important pieces to the makeup puzzle. For optimally healthy skin, it is important to eat nutritiously, drink plenty of fluids, steer clear of tanning and wear sun block when out of doors, and avoid smoking and smoky atmospheres.
Makeup Tip #2: Covering Basic Problems
The key is to choose both concealer and foundation that match your skin tone. Concealer and foundation are both offered in solid, liquid, and loose mineral forms. Deciding which is best depends on your skin type and personal preferences. When it comes to powder, you must remember that powder exists to set your makeup.
Makeup Tip #3: The Eyes Have It
o Eye shadow
o Eye liner
A makeup tip for teenagers regarding eyes is that less is definitely more. Mascara plays an important role in eye makeup, and there are as many different types of mascaras as there are young women to try them.
Makeup Tip #4: Read Your Lips
o Lip gloss
o Lip liner
Painting lips should be left sweet and simple. Choose a light shade of lip liner and line all around the lips. Be careful not to line on the outside of the lips – simply stick to what nature gave you.
Makeup Tip #5: Adding Color
Using just one of the above items will enhance a teenager’s face subtly yet significantly. Blush, when used along the cheekbone, can create definition where there is none. Shimmer can be applied to the T-Zone with excellent results, and bronzer can be used all over to create a natural looking glow. It is important that, whichever of the three items that are chosen, they are used sparingly so as to not look overly done, and to let your natural beauty shine through.
