Teenagers have a different type of skin than adults. They usually are more prone to acne and need to take care when using makeup. Knowing how to apply makeup for teenage girls is an important skill. Use these tips for great makeup and facial care.
First, always start with clean hands and face. Use an oil-free cleanser that deep cleans and removes dirt and oil from the pores. If makeup is applied on dirty skin, it will trap dirt and oil into the pores and lead to acne. Always wash your hands before applying makeup to avoid getting any bacteria on your face.
Secondly, apply a moisturizer. This is an important base and helps to protect the skin. Use a moisturizer that is geared towards your skin type, dry to oily, and make sure that the moisturizer has a sunscreen.
Thirdly, use a makeup brush and stipple a small amount of concealer underneath your eyes, any zits, or skin perfections. Blot these spots with your finger and then smooth out slightly. Concealer should be used sparingly and only to cover a few problem areas.
Fourth, apply makeup. Whether using a liquid or a powder foundation, use a brush to get a smoother appearance. Remember that skin has to breathe so use a small amount. Girls who have oily skin are usually better off with a powder makeup while girls with dry skin should choose a liquid or cram foundation.
Fifth, use a clean mascara brush to comb the eyebrows up and then apply a soft eyeshadow to fill in any brow gaps and make them appear fuller. Coming your eyebrows ensures that they look nice and is an important part of looking your best without needing to use a lot of product. Choose a shadow that is in a neutral color for everyday. A light cream or soft bronze are the best choices for most skin types. Avoid any bright or neon colors as these are usually best saved for a dramatic occasion.
Sixth, apply blush to the apples of the cheeks. Smile and then blend the blush up and in a circular motion blending towards the temple or following the cheekbone. Use a powder or a gel blush, although powder can be difficult to not be overwhelming. Remember that blush only needs to be minimal.
Seventh, choose a lip color. Start with a clear lip balm. Fill in the entire lip with the lip balm. Choose a good brand that will last throughout the day. This protects the lips and helps to lengthen the lip gloss. Then choose a clear or tinted lip gloss to go on top. Lipstick is usually better for a special occasion, but lip gloss is perfect for everyday and has a fresh and young look that is perfect for a teenager. Apply sparingly and reapply during the day as needed.
These tips on how to apply makeup for teenage girls are a good guide for choosing and applying makeup. Use these tips to create a young look easily.
