Makeup Tips for Teenagers

Whether you’re a parent or a teen, having some easy makeup tips for teenagers can solve a lot of problems.  As a parent, you can see what’s on the tips list and decide if you are comfortable with them and, as a teen,  you may want a little advice on how to apply makeup to get the best look. 

Keep two things in mind when you’re talking teens and makeup: Makeup products and makeup application.  Discussion over products usually comes down to how many and what color. Discussion over makeup  application usually is all about how much. Your teen can probably get by with relatively few products, but  she might want every product in ten different colors. What she really could use are tips on how to apply makeup so it looks great without making her look too mature for her age.

Your Skin
Before every makeup application, you need to cleanse your skin. Using a cleanser that is right for your skin type, wash your face and neck thoroughly. Don’t rub hard; instead, use gentle circular motions. Rinse completely, and pat dry with a towel.

The first makeup to consider is foundation. Many teenagers don’t need any foundation at all. If you do use foundation to cover blemishes or even out skin tone, it’s important to learn how to apply makeup like foundation with an easy hand. Too much looks caked on, and that never looks good. You should use a powder foundation rather than a liquid. Put it on with a big, fluffy brush, rather than a powder puff. Then blend, blend, blend so it covers your skin and doesn’t flake off. You can use concealer below your eyes and on blemishes if needed. Use the concealer first and then the foundation.

Your Eyes
Next are the eyes. Start with your brows. Your eyebrows really frame your whole face, so keep them neat. It helps to start with a professional eye waxing to give your brows a perfect shape. After that, it’s easy to keep the look up with a pair of good tweezers and a mirror. Tweeze your brows right after you shower, and it will be much easier and less painful.

For eyes that look wide-awake, start by curling your eyelashes before you apply any eye makeup. Eye makeup application can be varied according to what type of look you want. For teenagers just starting out with makeup, those glimmery, shimmery eye shadows are lots of fun, and they look great. Teens can wear nearly any color eye shadow, but you should stay away from colors that are super harsh. If you go with a bold color, make sure the rest of your makeup is minimal, or you’ll wind up with a clown face.

The best way to apply eye shadow is to apply a small amount and blend it into the crease of the eye. Don’t wear eye shadow above the crease, unless it is a very, very light color, without the shimmer.

If you choose to wear eyeliner, never put it on the inside of your lids-either upper or lower. This is a good way to get bacteria in your eye, and you could wind up with a nasty infection. Instead, use eyeliner on your top lid, as close to the lash line as possible. Then use a cotton swab or a stiff makeup brush and blend the color down into your lashes. For your lower lashes, just apply dots of eyeliner between the lashes and then blend.

For mascara, start with the wand at the roots, and wiggle your way to the ends to get full coverage without clumps. If you do get any clumps, use a mascara comb to separate them.

Your Cheeks and Lips
On your cheeks, you need only a bit of cream or gel blush. Pinks work best for teens, with rosy pink as the darkest option. Put the blush on the apples of your cheeks, and then blend well.

No list of how to apply makeup would be complete without discussing lips. For teens, the best thing for lips is a gloss. The shine is unbeatable; you can get them with tints and with flavors. Skip the lip liners and heavy lipsticks. They look too heavy on teens, and there’s plenty of time for these when you’re older.

Beauty Tips for Teen Girls

Makeup and clothing is an issue for many teenage girls. If you are stressing about what you should look like as a newcomer in middle school, or a freshie in high school, here’s a quick guide to help your fashion mature with you throughout middle and high school.
In Sixth grade, wear lip gloss, some mascara, and maybe a little bit of pale eyeshadow; don’t go too heavy or it may look bad. If you want to try out more types of makeup, keep that for home experiments.
As for clothes, keep it in your comfort level. Bear this in mind: if you are wearing a bra or undershirt, don’t let the straps hang out. It doesn’t look cool; it just looks sloppy. If you are wearing a short shirt, check in the mirror to see if your stomach hangs out of the bottom. Otherwise, wear something a little bit longer. Also, if your pants are likely to slip, wear a belt. Belts are totally hip now!
* The main point is to keep the makeup light, and the clothes clean cut.
In Seventh grade you are beginning to care a little more what you look like; you might want to try curling your hair a few days a week, and using different hairstyles besides your typical ponytail.
If you are acne prone, try foundation. Remember thet even oily skin can get flaky and that looks horrible with foundation. So try it on weekends first and ask your mother (or someone that uses foundation well) if it looks okay.
In Seventh grade you might want to try eyeliner. But not too much because you don’t want to look like a racoon!
Start trying to tie outfits together with accessories. It’s good to try new things with your makeup and clothes. But when you try the new things, make sure it looks good on you, not just in the picture or at the store. Check out different stores, and find out if there is a style that suits you.


In eighth grade you are probably getting good at makeup and you know what you like. Try establishing your own hairstyle without looking like everyone else. For example, if everyone has long, layered hair with no bangs, try light wispy bangs and a shorter, layered look.
You might be wearing tighter jeans now and probably starting to get concerned with impressing the guys, so it’s safe to try out more mature styles such as a sleek leather blazer, or lower cut necklines. If you are happy with your sports bra, that is totally OK. But it’s safe now to check out the actual bra department and wear something that makes you feel pretty – like lace.
Ninth grade: high school! This is a big transition. Now in the same world as seniors, you are going to want to look like the rest of your peers. You should by now have your makeup and hair styles already. Try to update this look a bit, because no one wants to carry the same look they had in middle school. Dramatize a detail in your hair. If its known for it’s left side part, part it even deeper. Make a straight style even sleeker and hip. Learn to make youre curls tighter, or looser.
In high school you might want to wear your usual make up during the day, and as you start to go out with friends and boys at night, add a darker shade of eyeliner, or jazz up your lips with something more festive. It’s also good to try new shoes, try wearing spikier ankle boots with a pair of hot jeans and a blouse. Chunkier heels aren’t as hip as spikes as you get older. Incorporate accessories into your outfit. Buy yourself a bag that’s in suede or leather to keep your schoolbooks in, instead of a backpack. You will want to buy yourself a new jacket, and make it your own.
You know what you like, so go and find clothes that fit your style, but crank it up a notch for a more mature feel.
