Introducing Makeup to Teens  A Teenager Makeup Tutorial

Introducing Makeup to Teens — A Teenager Makeup Tutorial

When you’re new to makeup, a teenager makeup tutorial will help to learn the best application techniques.

A teenager makeup tutorial will help the beginners learn ways to apply makeup to achieve a more natural look.

A beginner makeup kit for a teenager is a great gift idea!

I hesitate writing this because I don’t think teenagers need makeup at all, but I also am not naïve enough to think that they won’t eventually want to wear it. And really, there isn’t anything wrong with a little makeup. The whole “less is more” mentality applies here. Introducing your teen to a lighter application of makeup and embracing their interest might be the way to go. That way, you can teach them about applying makeup to achieve a more natural look. In this case, you need a teenager makeup tutorial. Purchasing your teen a beginner makeup kit is a great gift idea. Plus, you’ll be choosing the products so you can ensure the colors are not too bold.

Makeup kit storage container

Help your teen organize their products with a beginner makeup organizing container, caddy, or makeup case. They’ll enjoy arranging their new products in the container, and it will give you peace of mind that their products are in a safe place.


Makeup mirror

A good makeup mirror is a must for being able to get the application technique down pat. Choose a mirror with lights so your teen is applying their makeup in optimal lighting. You might even want to purchase a makeup manual for tips on how to apply it.

Makeup brush

If you go for a set of brushes, it is best to go “less is more” here, too, and choose a set with the least amount of brushes for your teen. Anything beyond that can be a bit overwhelming. Plus, you’re going for a natural look, so there’s no need for 10-15 makeup brushes.

Cleanser and moisturizer

It is very important that your teen knows how to wash their face thoroughly before applying makeup and at the end of the day. We all know teens struggle with acne due to their rapidly changing hormones, so cleaning their face and using moisturizer should take precedence over the makeup products. Get them a terry cloth headband so they can pull their hair back for optimal cleansing.

Makeup essentials

Concealer is important to cover up blemishes — just make sure you choose the right color for your skin tone. A light powder to seal in the concealer is also a great tip to tell your teen. Plus, it can sometimes appear more natural than a foundation.

A touch of mascara

Make sure you get a mascara that is light, easy to apply, and won’t run. Have your teen watch a video to learn the correct application. They might also need a tutorial on how to use an eyelash curler!

Blush options

There’s nothing wrong with adding a dab of color to your cheeks. However, blush is commonly overused, so just make sure they don’t add too much!


Definitely opt for the neutral shades as a teen. Remember, less is more! Plus, neutral doesn’t mean “lack of color.” You’ll definitely notice your eyelids will brighten up a bit, even with a more natural tone.

Lip gloss for beginners

Your teen will probably want to have a say on the color of lip gloss, so get a few shades for their beginner makeup kit. There are even tinted shades of lip balm you could add in there for a less dramatic look. Lip gloss is the one item that your teen will go for every time, even if they aren’t wearing any other makeup, so I would say this is the most important item in the kit.

When teaching your teen to apply makeup, make sure to tell them that it takes practice, and what looks good on others may not look good on them. The social media trend of filming yourself applying makeup can actually be a great teenager makeup tutorial. As long as they adhere to the “less is more” mentality, a little makeup can go a long way!
