How To Apply Makeup For Teens – A Step By Step Tutorial

May 28, 2018

Your teen years are the perfect time for some fresh, simple yet fun makeup looks. Now that you have an idea of all the essentials to have on your dresser, here’s a tutorial to help you create the perfect look.

1. Prep Your Skin

Start with a clean slate. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser, exfoliate if necessary, and apply your moisturizer. If you have oily skin, you can use a priming moisturizer instead.

2. Apply BB Cream

Apply your BB cream or a tinted moisturizer with a brush or your fingers. Blend it out well until your skin looks even-toned. Make sure you keep it really light by applying a thin layer for a natural-looking finish.

3. Go In With Concealer

If you have dark spots or dark under eye circles, apply a concealer. Don’t go overboard with the concealer and focus on problem areas only.

4. Add Some Blush

Use a subtle rosy pink cream blush and apply it using your fingers. You want a naturally flushed look, so keep it light and blend the product out well. You can add a light translucent powder on the other areas of your face.

5. Enhance Your Eyes

Apply a neutral eyeshadow on your lids and apply a coat of mascara to enhance your eyes. This will instantly make you look more awake. Groom your eyebrows with a spoolie.

6. Apply Your Lip Color

Use a tinted lip balm or a lip gloss for your pout – a color that looks very subtle and sheer to add a hint of color and hydration to your lips.

Tips: Makeup Tips And Tricks For Teenage Girls

Girls, you know what you need, and you know how to go about creating a simple, go-to makeup look that’s literally perfect for any occasion. The best thing about makeup is that you get to further enhance your already gorgeous features. Don’t use it as a crutch or try to look like somebody else, but use it to put your best face forward. Get it?

Here are a bunch of tips that will come in handy and help you make the most of it.

  • Always moisturize and use a light primer as these are the best things you can do before putting any makeup on. This step will help set a smooth base for your makeup to go on while reducing oiliness and shine. Try the Benefit POREfessional Primer!

  • It’s always a good idea to curl your lashes before putting on mascara. If you curl them after you have already put it on, it’s more likely to clump and ruin the look.

  • Use only high-quality products with ingredients that won’t clog your pores or harm your skin. When you’re a teenager, your skin is more prone to breakouts – use makeup that suits your skin type and won’t irritate it.

  • When you’re using your concealer to cover those pesky blemishes, use one that matches your skin tone and set it with loose powder to prevent it from fading through the day.

  • It’s also very important to take off your makeup at the end of the day. Make sure you incorporate CTM (cleansing, toning, and moisturizing) into your daily beauty routine for skin that is healthy and flawless.
