The building blocks for makeup should be healthy skin.  All the teen and tween beauty tips I am sharing are centered around this.  Having good skin care habits and building a natural makeup bag is a great way to get started and keep chemicals off their ever changing faces.

Light makeup is the way to go when tweens and teens start experimenting with cosmetics.  Youthful faces should be just that.  Steer clear of dark colors, applying too much of anything, and buy products carefully.  Rejuva Minerals is an easy place to start.  Their makeup line is all natural and made in the USA.

Basic Skin Care Habits For Teens

  1. Wash your face before bed. Eye Makeup Remover & Luxurious Facial Soap Bar are gentle, natural and thorough.
  2. Apply a basic moisturizer made especially for faces.
  3. Wear a sunscreen daily in the a.m.

How & What Makeup To Apply As A Teen {The Basics}

  • Even out your skin tone or cover blemishes with pressed powder foundation or spot conceal, the foundation works for this.
  • Add a little color on your cheeks with blush or bronzer right along the cheek bones.
  • Bring out your eyes with a couple light coats of Mega Lash mascara, to apply start at the base of your lashes and wiggle the wand upward, this helps separate.
  • Add a lip gloss (clear is always good), Rejuva Minerals formula is non-sticky, moisturizing and light weight.

Caring & Cleaning Makeup Guidelines

Wash your makeup brushes weekly.  A mild shampoo works fine.
Rejuva Minerals has made in the USA brushes, a hard find.  They are sensitive and synthetic – vegan friendly.  I recommend starting with these three brushes – Soft Blush, Flat Top Buki, and the Cover & Blend Brush.

  • Use a pea size amount in the palm of your hand and swirl the brush to loosen all the makeup.
  • Run it around running water to rinse away.  You may need to repeat a few times until the water runs clear.
  • Let air dry – remove some of the water by wiping back and forth on an old towel first.

At least once a month clean out your makeup up bag too, these things can harbor tons of bacteria if you don't.
