Makeup for Teens part 2


This is part two of the follow-up post I did after my segment on Studio 5.  I talked about makeup for teens and how to transition them into makeup plus a few other tips.

Here are the basics:

•Keep a full, but groomed brow. Most teens will be tempted to start tweezing them, then all of a sudden only a fraction of their brows survive. (I’m totally guilty of this. I plucked and plucked until there was hardly anything left. And what remained resembled little apostrophe’s, or tadpoles, on my face. 😕 Whoops!)

•Take good care your skin. After years of using aggressive cleansers ,I switched to Cerave after my dermatologist told me I was making my skin angry with everything I was using. Sorry skin, my bad! And honestly, for problematic, acne-prone skin, there are plenty of things that probably work, but I say just go to a dermatologist. They know best.

•Parents, when you feel comfortable with your teen wearing makeup, start with letting them wear mascara and lip balm. Then as needed, implement concealer, foundation, bronzer and a little for their brows. Then eyeshadow and eyeliner. These are just guidelines so use your best judgement.

Aren’t these girls just stunning? ↓


Getting the correct foundation is key. For dryer skin types, I like Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. For normal or combination skin, I like  Lancome Teint Miracle.  For oily skin, I like Bare Minerals Ready. These will all provide a lighter more natural coverage.

In my opinion,  before and after photos are useful to give a better idea of where things go and what they look like ↓


The products I used:

Complexion: Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette in Streak for bronzer, blush, and highlighter  and Make Up Forever Full Cover Concealer.  For foundation, reference the previous recommendations in this post.

Eyes: Sephora Collection Retractable Brow Pencil,   L’Oreal Infallible Gel liner in Espresso It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Eye Shadow Trio, and L’Oreal Voluminous mascara .

Lips:  Nyx Butter gloss in Creme Brulee (brunette and blonde) and Apple Strudel (red head) and  Urban Decay Lip Liner in Naked 2.

I know you’ve already seen this photo ↓ but look at them! They’re just so pretty!
