Except for parties teenagers should use makeup most sparingly. Not every teenage girl will win the Miss America contest or become a famous movie star, but most teens and young women do have one thing in common – they want to feel beautiful! Women of all ages spend countless hours and hundreds of dollars on beauty magazines and products in order to achieve that special look.
Powder helps in mixing and setting your foundation right and also adds a natural glow to your skin. Use loose powder since it gives an even finish and the excess is easy to remove. However compressed powder is easy to carry around so girls find that handy.
Keep your make-up light for school. You don’t need to use make-up on every facial feature you have! Mix and match to find out what looks best on you. As a first step to any successful makeup, always start with your complexion: erase imperfections. First test a foundation color by applying a thin line of color to the jaw line. This will allow you to compare color to the skin on the face as well as the neck to avoid any obvious differences.
The color should blend perfectly with your skin tone. If you’re going to use an eyeliner, a pencil liner looks more natural than liquid liner. Black/Brown mascara and eyeliner flatters most faces, blondes, brunettes, and redheads. Black is usually too harsh, especially for blondes. Pinks and peaches blush tones compliment almost any skin tone. Apply to the apple of your cheeks and blend outwards, towards your hairline.
Blusher gives your face warmth and makes it livelier. But use it properly since blush used at wrong places might give quite funny looks. For example if you use blush too near to your nose, it will draw your face inwards. If you want to make your eyes appear wide the just sweep some blush outwards. If you want a chiselled look dab some under your cheekbones.
