You may have tried to put it off for as long as possible but the day will inevitably come when your teenager will want to start using makeup. From simple makeup for school to party makeup, she’ll want to start experimenting as soon as she’s able. This is where your guidance will come in.
It’s important to teach your teen how to use makeup in the correct way. There are many ways to get it wrong but with your guidance, she’ll soon learn how to do it properly. If you’re just starting out with your makeup lessons, here are some tips.
Before she starts applying her makeup, she should always have a clean surface to work with. It’s like an artist using a blank canvas to create artwork. Along with cleansing and exfoliating, she should also make sure to moisturise.
If she doesn’t moisturise, her skin may absorb her makeup instead. This will mean that her skin isn’t getting the right moisture and she may become more prone to pimples.
Your teen is at an age where her skin is sensitive. The last thing she needs is a thick foundation that covers her beautiful skin. A sheer foundation is enough to give her some coverage while still showing her natural skin.
It also helps to give her skin a boost by adding a glow when she needs it. When attending events, she can use a shimmering powder to seal the foundation and give her a translucent look.
Eyelash extensions are ideal for teenagers when they want to add a wow factor to their makeup. If your teen has a party coming up, practicing applying eyelashes with lash adhesive can come in handy. It’s a simple way to create a new look with very little effort.
The best part about it is that your teen can take the eyelashes off as soon as the party is over. It’s even easier than wiping off makeup at the end of the day.
Blush and Highlighter
Blush and highlighter are a great way to brighten the face and open the eyes. When you show your teen how to apply blush and highlighter, point out the apples of the cheeks. These will be easy to find when she smiles.
Apply a small amount of blush to the apples of the cheeks and an even smaller amount of highlighter to the cheeks and slightly beyond, towards the eyes. This creates the perfect amount of sparkle and enhancement.
Teenagers are nothing if not self conscious. It’s common for blemishes to occur during teenage years and you can show your teen what to do about them. Firstly, removing makeup at the end of every day is important when it comes to avoiding blemishes.
When it comes to covering blemishes, concealer is your best friend. Show your teen how to add a small amount of concealer to each blemish and gently dab until it is covered.
