01. Skin prepping is important
Skincare and makeup go hand-in-hand. In order to get the perfect makeup finish, it is important to prep your skin first. After cleansing your skin with a face wash, apply a lightweight moisturiser and sunscreen before putting on any sort of makeup. This will ensure your skin stays moisturised as well as protected.
02. Less is more
Always remember that less is more. As a teenager, you should look for makeup products that can multitask. For example, a BB cream such as the Ponds White Beauty BB+ Cream moisturises your skin, offers UV protection and hides spots instantly for even-looking skin. This way you won’t have to follow an elaborate routine yet get the results you are looking for.
03. Opt for a lip gloss or lip balm
Instead of spending your time deciding which lipstick shade to wear, simply pick a lip balm or lip gloss and apply it on your lips. The Lakme Lip Love Chapstick is perfect for every teenager, it keeps your lips moisturized for a long time and gives it a beautiful and natural tint. If you don’t have a blush, you can rub your fingertip over the chapstick and gently dab on your cheeks to get a flushed look.
04. Eyeliner is optional
When done with precision, eyeliner can look amazing. But instead of standing in front of the mirror every morning trying to perfect that winged eyeliner, you can skip it altogether for now. With your active lifestyle, you may find it difficult to keep it in place all day.
05. Picking the right shade is vital
If you do plan to buy a foundation for special occasions, remember that you need to opt for a shade that’s closest to your skin tone. Swatch it around the jawline to identify the shade properly, also check the shades in sunlight to see how it actually looks on your skin.
