Makeup is fun and it can create a transformation that can bring confidence to the difficult time of growing up, but it can be applied sparingly. As an introduction to teens wearing makeup, I suggest starting with a tinted lip balm or gloss, and then something a little more, without looking so obvious. An easy next step might be a light coat of mascara or maybe just a touch of blush, bronzer or even just a shimmery highlight on the cheekbones for fun. These ideas are plenty to create a transformation.
If teens are experiencing skin breakouts, they will probably want to find a good foundation to cover their blemishes. Just that alone can really make a big difference and boost the confidence of a teenager going through hormone changes. For someone who doesn’t have anything to cover, they might choose just a little concealer under their eyes and on their eyelids to brighten their face.
I started dappling with wearing makeup when I was about 13 years old, and that was only eyeliner and mascara. Some are just dappling like I was. However, nowadays by the time kids are 13, some can not only do a full beauty makeup, but they’ve learned a lot of special effects makeup tricks, and face painting skills. How are they so skilled in these professional makeup artistry techniques? They learn from Youtube tutorials...of course!
Makeup can make a child look a lot older or more mature than they really are. I personally think kids should enjoy being a kid and looking like a kid as long as possible. They’ll have a lot of years as a grown up, and when that time comes, they’ll also have the maturity to make the decisions that come with being and looking like an adult.
