How to Create a Starter Makeup Kit for a Teen Girl
If you are starting to use makeup, regardless of your age, creating a starter kit is a great way to get used to the products available. There is a wide range of makeup products and it helps to keep them properly arranged. Choosing from the available products can be challenging, and you might not be sure what to pick. The suggestions offered below should get you off to a great start.
Choosing the Basics
Consider what you might need.Here are some basics you might want to buy:
- Foundation which matches your skin tone.
- Concealer 1-3 shades lighter than your skin tone.
- Setting face powder (if you have oily skin).
- Peach, coral or pink colored blush (choose what you like more or what goes better with your skin tone!).
- Eyeshadow primer.
- Neutral colour eyeshadow.
- Brown, grey, taupe or bronze colored eye shadow (for darkening outer corner or crease).
- Light coloured eyeshadow to use as a highlighter.
- Black or brown kohl pencil eyeliner (for lining your waterline).
- Black or brown liquid or gel eyeliner.
- Clear, black or brown mascara.
- Pink, clear, golden, peach, coral or whatever color you like of lip gloss.
- Makeup bag to store your stuff.
- Flat Eyeshadow brush.
- Fluffy Eyeshadow blending brush (for application in crease and blending).
- Blush brush.
Buy what works for you; there is no need to get makeup you don't like and won't use.
Make a list of things you would really like in your kit.Maybe you have bad under eye circles or blemishes. You might find a concealer and foundation useful. If your complexion is really pale and you want to be more tan, then you will find a bronzer helpful.
- It's better not to buy really glittery and bright items the first time, because you can end up looking bad and too made up. Instead, choose light matte colors, which are perfect for everyday use.
- You can buy a lip gloss in brighter colors for special occasions.
Research the products you intend to buy in depth.You don't want to spend all your money on an eyeliner which afterward will cause an allergic reaction. Search online for reviews, watch some online videos about these products and then make your decision.
- Check out the Skin Deep cosmetics database at: . Run by the Environmental Working Group, this database can tell you a lot about the things in your cosmetics. It is never too early to be proactive about making safe makeup choices.
Buying the Kit Items
Plan your budget.Brands of makeup you'll buy depend on how much money you have. Perhaps spend the most on foundation, concealer and mascara, because your eyes may be allergic to the components found in cheap mascaras.
- If your parents don't want to give you that amount of money that you need, try to save some money from your pocket money. Find a part-time job or ask parents if they can give you money for doing some household jobs, like vacuuming, cleaning or washing your clothes.
Go to the mall.If you're at a loss for what to buy, you can always ask for help one of the girls or guys who work in the beauty-section of the shop. Take your list to help guide your choices. Pick products carefully and patiently, and don't be nervous.
- Maybe you can go to the mall with your best friend, a person whom you can trust, no matter if she knows a lot about makeup or not.
- Swatch all products on your hand and fingertips - there the color of skin is most similar to your lip color!
Buy your makeup and head home.
Testing Your New Kit
Start to experiment with your new makeup when you are back to home.Try on different styles; learn early how not to overdo your makeup, as it will age you and can leave you looking like a clown. It's better if you don't use your makeup at school until you learn some tricks and tips about applying it in the right way.
Know when the makeup looks right.This can take some trial and error. First, look in the mirror; do you like the effect you've created? Ask a friend, your mom, a sibling too. The advice of others is very important when you're starting out. Always start with using less. Your own youthful features are beautiful enough already.
When putting together a makeup kit, you’ll generally need foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, and lip gloss. Start by finding a foundation that matches your skin tone, and a concealer a couple shades lighter. Then, find a neutral-toned eyeshadow palette with deeper colors for your crease and lighter colors for your eyelid. To apply eyeshadow, look for a small blending brush for your crease, and a flat brush for your eyelid. To finish off the look, pick up a black mascara to darken your eyelashes and a clear mascara to groom your eyebrows.
- Don't overdo your makeup - but don't be afraid of experimenting, too!
- Always check the expiration date of your products!
- Don't buy anything just because somebody tells you to do! Only buy it if you want it.
- If you don't want to use makeup, don't feel that youhave to. You are still beautiful without any makeup on.
- Researching is an important step. If you don't, things might not be what they say.
- Remember to clean your brushes frequently, because bacteria can build up on them quickly.
