My First Make-Under

by The Evans Fam on June 9, 2008

I can’t seem to find a makeup style guide that will work for me. I am just starting to wear makeup, so I don’t really know what will look good on me. I also don’t want to pile a ton on, only a little. Any advice?

Hi Lauren~

I’m so glad you are asking for advice on this subject! So many girls your age just start slapping colors on their face and end up looking like clowns. Nothing compares to natural beauty, and makeup should only be used to enhance this.

This also gives me the opportunity to talk about one of my favorite birthday memories growing up. On my 13th birthday my mom made an appointment at the mall for me to get a makeover at one of the makeup counters. It was so much fun and such a great experience. Most any of the make up lines will do them for free. You aren’t obligated to purchase all the products they use. They talked to me about the colors I should use and those I should stay away from, proper skin care, and how not to overdo it. Not only was it a great learning experience and fun, but it was a great bonding moment that my mom and I were able to enjoy together. Some of the tips that have stuck with me are to ALWAYS wear a moisturizer with sunscreen, and less is more.

For those of you who are old enough to go to formal dances and such, you are even able to get these makeovers at the mall makeup counters for special events. Another option for an evening makeup look is to call your local beauty college, they are a great affordable option as well.
