We all make bug beauty mishaps as teens. During our teenage years, we’re keen to experiment with makeup, creating different looks for ourselves. However, many of us never get taught how to apply makeup, it tends to be a process of trial and error. As we look back of photographs of ourselves during our younger years, we usually spot the odd makeup mishap that we wish we’d been aware of sooner. Below we have a few top beauty tips for teens who are starting to wear makeup for the first time.
First and foremost: don’t go overboard on the foundation. This is possibly the most common of makeup faux pas. It can be tempting to try to create a flawless finish on your face, but the chances are, if you are young, your skin is already flawless. If you’re struggling with acne, a face full of foundation will only make matters worse, no matter how much you may want to keep those blemishes covered up. Try to only use foundation for uneven patches of skin. Try to opt for a light foundation in a natural skin tone. Heavy foundations which are darker than your skin’s natural colour will only make it look obvious that you’re wearing makeup. A good foundation should make your skin look clear with subtlety. If a tinted moisturiser provides you with enough coverage, this is the best option as it will keep your skin well hydrated without blocking up those pores.
When you come to apply concealer, avoid rubbing it in. All too many women lather on the concealer, rubbing it over all of their blemishes. However, lightly tapping concealer on your skin gives your face a much more natural, flawless look. Apply powder over the top of concealer to ensure that it sets on your face.
Finally, always remember that less is more. If your eyes are your best feature and you want to emphasise them with makeup, avoid going overboard on the lips. On the other hand, if you want to wear a bold lip colour, go natural on the eyes. Heavily made up eyes and lips can make you look a little like a clown and also fail to emphasise your best points. If you’re emphasising all of your features, the features that you want to stand out will not have any impact. Always remember to keep it minimal.
