Makeup for the Teenager

If you’re a long-time follower of this blog, you’d know that I did my cousin C’s prom makeup last year. It wasn’t any different this year.

Last year, I decided on a whimsical fairy theme that’s why she had blue, green pink and purple in her eyes. This year, now that she’s a bit older, I concentrated on the pinks and browns that will complement her dress. I did more mature makeup on her but still keeping with the sweet pinks associated with teenagers.
I used the Naked Palette for this look.
1. Pat SIN all over the lid.
2. On the crease, I applied HUSTLE
3.On the outer v, I applied TOASTED
4. Next, I put SIDECAR on the center of each lid. Just light feathery strokes from the bottom, to the right and up will do.
5. For the highlight, I used VIRGIN
6. Finally, I lightly patted HALF BAKED all over her lids (not including crease) for the golden shimmery effect. This last step was perfect. It made all the colors shine.
C was also with me during the Clinique Mini Makeover Workshop.


Ms. Dindin was her consultant and MUA of the day.


With the Clinique ladies, there always has to be a wacky pose!

And of course, Dindin taught C this pose.

When I was a teenager, I didn’t like makeup. I only had face powder and lip balm and I was happy with that. I was a late bloomer when it comes to makeup. It was only when I first started this blog that I became serious in studying, collecting and writing about it.
I like kids to be kids. I like to see them wear appropriate clothes. I cringe whenever I see a 5-year old kid wearing boots and halter/backless tops. What ever happened to sailor dresses and maryjanes and fairy/princess outfits? The same goes for teenagers. I don’t like seeing teenagers (high schoolers) in their school uniform wearing too much gunk on their faces. I think that a face powder, a subtle blush and tinted lip balm is enough for everyday use for a high school student. C is starting to develop a love for makeup so I guess she will be exploring this world more when she goes to college this June.
What about you, what is your take on makeup for teenagers?


  1. You did a good job with her makeup E! =)

    I think there are people who can pull off wearing makeup and those who can't. ;)

  2. Thanks sugar! Come to think about it, yes, you are absolutely right!
