Every girl wants to feel pretty, and make up usually lets us do that, but should every girl wear a full face of make up every single day? Maybe, but maybe not. There are lots of serious advantages to wearing make up on a daily basis. It covers up some flaws and accents your best features, but there are some considerations for wearing make up as well.
Know How to Wear It
The first, and perhaps the biggest, concern for girls looking to wear make up is to know how to wear it. You should watch shows, and you should read articles and tips on the newest techniques. You should practice often and get feedback from friends who will give you their honest opinions. Then Ė and only then Ė should you start actually wearing the make up to school. You don't want to be the girl who didnít know how to wear make up correctly Ė it leaves you feeling yucky and discouraged. Fortunately, a bit of practice can make it easy to wear and practical, too.
Know When to Take It Off
There are sweat proof make up products out there, but generally speaking you donít need much, if any make up if youíre going to be sweating during the day. Make up creates a layer over your skin. If youíre going to be athletic
the first few hours of your day just wait to put it on. You can sweat without getting oils and grease trapped in your pores. Then, after a good facial cleansing, you can put your make up on again.
You should also take your make up off as soon as youíre settled in at home for the evening. Teenage girls tend to have skin that acts up with the slightest touch of grease or oil. Make it a point to pull your hair back off your bangs and wash your face every morning before you put any make up on and then to wash it again when you get home from school or work. The more time your face spends without make up, the less likely you are to have breakouts caused by oily make up. Granted, you canít avoid all possible breakouts, but you can at least let your face breath from time to time.
Keep It Simple
Itís fun to think that you can put on a full face of make up if you want to, but the truth is most teenage girls have beautiful skin already Ė even if you have a dot or a red mark from time to time. Rather than slopping on foundation, use a dab of concealer on the bright spots and focus more on your eyes and your lips. A swipe of mascara and then a dab of lip gloss is all you really need to look pulled together and to show off your best features Ė pretty eyes and full lips.
