Whether they are getting ready for a relative’s wedding or for a homecoming dance, there are occasions when girls don a bit more makeup to achieve a stronger, more elegant look. However, dark, smoky eyes and bold red lips can look too mature on a young face.
So how should teenage gals add glamor to their appearance without looking like they spent the afternoon experimenting in their mothers’ makeup? The secret may not lie within the application process, but rather in the color palette selected.
Instead of harsh black or espresso-colored shadows and dark berry glosses, which can appear severe on young women, opt for deep neutral hues that will naturally emphasize features, similar to Emma Roberts’ makeup at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards.
The young starlet looked stunning, rocking smoldering golden eyeshadow and a glossy nude lip. “I played upon bronze hues…to bring forth an ingénue appeal,” makeup artist Dawn Broussard told People.com.
GloMinerals gloEye Shadow is a sheer formula that is light and blendable, perfect for creating a subtly glamorous look for a young woman’s big night out.
