Teen Beauty Picks from Makeup Artist Kim Porter

Nothing to Disclose

The best makeup for a teenager
I feel that teen makeup should be polished and pretty, you never want people to notice your makeup more than they notice you! A simple routine that takes just a few minutes, is all you need to give your skin a pretty glow, and highlight your best features. Since I tend to use higher priced products in my kit, this was a fun challenge for me! I did a lot on internet searching for the best products and included some that I know to be tried and true favorites.

    Something I wanted to add but didn't want to get off point…if you do decide to wear foundation (although most girls that age don't need it) have a professional find your perfect shade. There is nothing worse than the wrong foundation shade!
