Okay, so make-up doesn’t really have many rules, but for those just starting on the cosmetic journey here are a few guidelines, or maybe just thoughts that might help you along the way. Realize of course, that I’m not your mother nor would I want to be – just kidding! This is just advice passed from one girl to another.

Make-up Enhances

Make-up, especially at our age, is there to enhance natural beauty – not make you look like someone new. A bit of dark mascara makes eyelashes darker and makes your eyes stand out. False eyelashes are a bit over the top – unless you’re into costumes. Choose a foundation and powder that are light and feel more like a lotion than a cream. You have no wrinkles, so you don’t need to worry about filling in lines, just blend on top of your already smooth skin to make a fresh palette. A light dusting of powder for shine control on top of a blended foundation, and you’re in business.

Stick to Natural Colors

Someday when you’re ready for the red carpet you can bust out your heavy duty smoky eyes, but for now you would do well to stick to natural colors. I know sometimes trends make us wear green or blue eye shadow (or both), and go ahead if you like trends. But if you’re still trying to figure out how to get started, you can’t go wrong with a light brown or gray shadow. You can actually skip shadow all together if you want and go with just dark brown mascara instead.

Lipsticks are a fun way to experiment, but the easiest way to get some color and shine on your lips is the good old lip gloss. Pick a pretty peach or pink shade of gloss, apply without liner and you’re done. One thing you should put on that many girls our age skip is blush. Just a quick swipe of a pretty pink or peach blush up each cheek will give you a bit of color and life and keep you from looking so sallow and pale, unless you’re going for a pale look (Hi, Goths!)

What Goes On…

Must come off! Never go to bed with make-up on your face. There is nothing worse for your pores and skin than sleeping in make-up. In fact, you should wash your face at the end of every day whether you used make-up or not. That keeps all the oil and dirt out of your pores, not to mention make-up particles, which will help you steer clear of break-outs. If you have oily skin, a mild cleanser in the morning can help cut down on shine, but most of us just need a splash of cool water on our clean morning faces before we begin applying our make-up.

The Routine

For those who like a solid routine to follow, here’s a sample to go by:

Rinse face with water in the morning and dry.
Apply a moisturizer with sunscreen every morning
Apply a very little bit of foundation and blend it very well into your hairline and chin line.
Dust powder over your nose, forehead and chin to cut shine. Dust away any excess.
Use a different brush to put on a light swipe of pink blush on either check. Smile when you do this to find the part of the cheek you should use.
Use a natural colored eye shadow if you want shadow.
Use a dark brown eye shadow on your top and bottom lashes. Be sure to apply starting at the roots to avoid light then dark lashes.
Put on a bit of lip gloss – no need to blot.
Head out with a smile on your face!

Although I must say these tips are good. If you like natural make up.

Its very nice to offer tips and all but everything you say affect only a certain group of people.

I wear thick eyeliner black eye shadow and mascara. And I look fine,

Now you should try to make articles that cover a wider range of tips for every type of makeup wearer

Don't forget eyeliner. That's pretty much all I wear except for mascara and eyeshadow.

But I wear eyeshadow that matches my shirt.

'Cause I'm off like that.

I just use a little foundation because it gives my skin a little more colour. On special occasion like parties I'll have some lip gloss and mascara on but that's all. But we have very strict make-up rules at school so I couldn't get away with anything to heavy even if I wanted to.

Lovely article.

I use black makeup usually (I'm Goth) but only when going out, and when I do use makeup, I don't go too heavy on it.

Great tips.

The omly make up I wear is lip gloss, I have a very pale face and make up doesn't look good on me. Plus, I really don't like the fact it takes up so much time.

Once, my sister gave me glitter sticks, years and years ago. I still have them.

Once I DID do a christmas play, and the director (and wonderful friend) was also make up artist, she brought her make and when she did me she hardly did a thing, blush, mascara and lip gloss. Boom, I'm done. Made everyone up-set cause they had tons of make up on.
