Beauty School: Teen Beauty Basics

Hi everyone,

Wearing makeup for the first time as a teenager is a really exciting rite of passage for everyone. I’ll never forget the first time I wore eyeliner for the first time at the age of 14. But finding the right makeup can also be a little scary because there are so many different products and brands to choose from. Your best bet is to keep it simple. The most pressing issues for teens are covering up blemishes and slight skin discolorations. You don’t want to use lots of product simple to make yourself look older–appreciate your youth now!

Here’s my guide to the fix must-have products for teens:

  1. Light colored or sheer eye shadow
  2. Concealer
  3. Clear brow gel
  4. Foundation stick
  5. Tinted lip balm, light pink or sheer lip gloss

The most important thing to remember is that you don’t want to cover your face in too much product. Stick to the basics, and use minimal color. You are absolutely beautiful just as you are without makeup. Even though we all associate wearing it with getting older, remember that wearing too much won’t actually make you older.

To my teenage subbies, what skincare or makeup problems do you most want to learn about? Let me know in the comments section!
