Makeup Tips Especially for Girls

You’re ready to start experimenting with wearing makeup and your parents have given you approval, but you don’t know where to start. While you want to try the newest products and trends you see in magazines or videos, it’s still very overwhelming. Here are some makeup tips especially for you!

Remember that you need to be comfortable in your own skin. Makeup can be about self-discovery: You’ll find what makes you happy and what makes you feel good being you. It can be a fun way to express yourself and highlight some of your best features for the world to see. It’s a learning process and is not something that will happen over night. With a little experimenting, you’ll soon develop your daily beauty regimen.

Soften Your Natural Features
Makeup is meant to enhance your natural beauty. You don’t have to go crazy with lots of it. A little can go a long way. Experts believe that too often makeovers involve lots of makeup and a masking of who you really are. Play up your lips OR your eyes, not both. Also, neutral colors allow you to shine vs. your bright makeup taking center stage.


Make Smart Beauty Buys
Spend your money wisely. Some products are worth paying more for, and some are best to get for a good value. It’s better to invest in staples that are important to your everyday look. Quality matters more when buying eye shadow, moisturizer, foundation, powder, blush, and an everyday lipstick, and less when it comes to mascara, eye liner, cleansers, lip gloss, and trendy lipstick colors. When you're contemplating trying out a new look, make sure you test the foundation, powder, blush, and lipstick to make sure you choose the right color for your skin tone.


Keep A Well-Groomed You
People tend to judge others by the care they put into their hands and their feet. Nothing says well-groomed louder than nails that are clean and the same length. Use this makeup tip: If you polish your nails, change or remove the color when it chips.


Have fun experimenting with these tips. Style is a fabulous form of self-expression. Create your own unique, individual look, and be sure it’s one that allows you to feel comfortable in your own skin.

NerdyGirl17, you could try to start with something simple, and on a Monday so its not like one day you have it on, the next you dont. Just do some pale eyeshadow and a little mascara to start, thats what I did. THen when you get older start to add stuff like powder, eyebrows, and eyeliner. I dont use eyeliner cuz i suck at uttning it

Is it important to you whether your gynecologist is a man or a woman?
No, not at all, as long as the doctor is kind and gentle.
Yes, definitely. I’d be less embarrassed with a woman.
Yes, I think a woman would be more understanding.
No, as long as the doctor is recommended by people I know.
