Given the amount of products available, the world of cosmetics can be overwhelming to young women who are starting to wear makeup. However, unlike her experienced elders, a teenage girl doesn’t require as many products to achieve a flawless look.
According to CBS News, girls who are beginning to experiment with cosmetics should adopt the motto less is more. “Make-up should enhance the way your face naturally looks, not make you look like a completely different person,” the news source reports.
While foundation can be a lifesaver to more mature gals, teens should stick with a tinted moisturizer. Dermalogica Sheer Tint Moisture SPF 15 is lightweight, boasts UV protection and is available in three shades.
Many girls are tempted to experiment with boldly colored eye and lip products, and while that’s fine when playing around at home, the news outlet suggests that teens use sheer formulas on lids and lips when heading out.
Pixi Fairy Light Solos is mineral-based powder eyeshadow, available in several neutral-colored shades, perfect for subtly enhancing a teenage girl’s beauty. A tinted lip balm, like Pixi Rose Lip Treat, adds a natural touch of color while conditioning lips.
