I’ve been thinking so much about my teenage makeup years lately that I can almost smell the vanilla swirl lip gloss as we speak. (Side note, who remembers the Bonne Bell Cappuccino lip gloss that kind of smelled like chocolate?! That was one of my staples.)
Ahhhh the joy of venturing onto makeup island, where most of us will be spending the rest of our lives. I’m hoping that some of my suggestions (learned from lots of trial and error,) can clear the path a little bit and make the journey to makeup-land a more enjoyable one for teens. And parents too!
