I recently applied just 3 make-up products to my face which left me feeling a bit put together and groomed, part of my making an effort for me campaign. This minimal make-up look made me realize that this is perhaps the answer to teenage make-up which has come up in a few coversations recently. And made me think back to our teenage days of probably the biggest make-up mishap which was dark brown lipstick.
For teenagers I would probably swop the BB Cream for a tinted mosturiser Eg: The Mac Studio Fix Tinted Mosturiser (now discontinued) which I had tested when deciding on whether to buy a BB Cream or Tinted Mosturiser. At 30 the BB Cream was appropriate for my skin needs, 16 years ago it would have been a Tinted Mosturiser, because I don’t think coverage is needed on a teen. The Mac Lustre lipstick in Hug Me is a nude shade in a semi-gloss finish that just adds a little colour to your lips and is my new favourite. After not using make-up for a very long time I find myself uncomfortable with anything brighter. This lipstick essentially gives the same effect as a tinted lip balm which would be a good idea for a teen or a pretty gloss.
I haven’t been using eye make-up recently except for occasions and my eyes have been dry recently so instead of ending up with smudged eyes caused by rubbing I’ve done without it.
