Being a teenager, it's pretty hard without adding makeup that is too much done and just too much. The teens are not the easiest, it's hard to be "just you" and still be accepted and be part of the group. Not everyone can be this latest model in the magazine you see everywhere and in the movies. She's using makeup artists, where you have to fend for yourself.
Here are some simple makeup tips for teens to help you find out what works and what does not work for you. Remember that there are parts of your face that you will want to play, such as your eyes and other parts of your face that you will want to play. Choose your best feature and work it!
What not to do:
1 ~ Too much foundation. This is one of the most common mistakes made by all ages of women. The Foundation is not to completely cover everything to the point of looking like a mask. Next carries the wrong shade of foundation. Wearing too much foundation can also cause breakouts due to pore blockage.
2 ~ Wearing too much eye shadow. There is a time and place to wear a lot of eye shadows, going to school is not actually part of it. When you play in your eyes, wearing too much eye shadow can make you look older and not in a good way. Go wild with your eye shadows, glitter etc when it's party time!
3 ~ Wear too much blush. We all saw, someone looked like they had painted a band on their cheekbones. Blush is meant to help bring out your eyes and give your face a glow of help, not to look like a clown.
4 ~ Wear a thick eyeliner. What is the eyeliner for? Eyeliner is worn at the base of your lashes to enhance your lashes to make them thicker. This is not worn as you just came out of the 50s. Often the biggest mistake made when wearing eyeliner is wearing it as a thick line on your eyelid and that's it all what you see. Eyeliner does not belong either to your water line on your lower lashes.
What to Do:
1 ~ Foundation. There are different types of foundation, tinted moisturizer, liquid, stick, creams, minerals. The best way to find out what works for you is to visit your local store and try different types. Do not just buy a color because it looks good in the packaging. If possible, try to get samples of different colors of foundations and try them on your chin line and not the back of your hand. Your hand and your face are not the same color just because it looks good on your hand does not mean it looks good on your face. With the base, a light hand is the best. One of the new types of foundation is mineral-based. The mineral-based base is a powder and is usually best applied with a kabuki brush. In this way, you can layer and find the best color for you. Also with mineral based base, you can mix the colors to find the best for you. Many small businesses that sell online, will offer samples at inexpensive prices and many will be more than happy to help you find the right shade for you.
2 ~ Choose the right shade of blush. The shades of pink are best for those with pale skin. If you have a medium complexion, look for shades of darker pink or light bronze. If your skin has a yellow tone, berries and shades of plums will help counteract superficiality. Ethical skin tone check the shades of roses that are more towards the brown tone. Remember that redness is to help give your face a healthy glow.
3 ~ Choose the right eye shadow for you. There are so many colors available these days that it is difficult to choose what suits you. Work with the color of your eyes and complexion when you try new eye shadow colors. Neutrals and shades of brown are best for daywear. Wear an eye shadow primer to keep your eyeshadow in place. The last thing you want to do is reapply your eyeshadow when you could text to this cute guy you saw at lunch time. The best way to decide what works best is to practice applying shadows at home in front of the mirror. Making mistakes at home where no one sees you is better than carrying your mistake all day. Check out all the latest magazines to find a girl who has your eyes colored and skin and try her makeup style.
These are just some beauty tips for teens. Once you've determined what's best for you, make sure your colleagues copy you and not copy them.
