Teen Tips for Choosing Suitable Makeup Colours

Teen Tips for Choosing Suitable Makeup Colours

Teens always want to make them beautiful, sometimes in their eyes and always in others eyes. Looking beautiful always depends on how you represent yourself. To represent yourself like a beauty queen, you should posses very high level of colour sense. But teenagers are very confused when choosing the right tones for their makeup. Sometimes it becomes very hard for them to find out right colouring combination.

This post will help you to improve your colour sense for makeup to look more beautiful.

How to Select Eye Shadow, Lipstick, Blush, and Foundation Colours

Use colours that complement eye type and skin tone to make a teen’s face glow. Although specific shades change with the season, fundamental colouring knowledge is essential.

Makeup displays offer a dizzying array of shades. Although it is fun to experiment with a new look, wearing the wrong makeup tones can make a teen feel clownish. Even when putting on a dramatic party look, teens want to feel as if people are looking at them, not their makeup. Selecting the right combination of blushes can make eyes glow and cheeks look lightly flushed.

In How to Be Sexy by Carmen Electra with Sheryl Berk (Broadway Books), the model suggests using eye shadow colours that are complement, instead of matching eye colour. Although seasons and fashion trends dictate specific blushes that are available in stores, these suggestions offer loose options that can be tweaked with the season.

  • Blue Eyes – Look for mauve, brown-pink, gold, bronze, and silver.
  • Brown Eyes – Complement with flesh colours, pewter, navy blue, khaki, gold, bronze, and mauve.
  • Green Eyes – Use gold, bronze, gray, earthy tones, and flesh colours.

Selecting Lipstick Colours

Electra believes that lipstick offers women the most versatility when it comes to wearing colour. Although some colours will look more natural, the option of having fun and buying a tube of lipstick in a wilder shade allows for experimentation without costing a lot of money. Guidelines that the model put together from the expert makeup artists she has worked with suggests complementing skin tone when selecting lipstick.

  • Fair Skin – Nudes, beige tones, light corals, light pinks.
  • Olive Skin or Golden Undertones – Reds, brownish mauves, burgundies, spicy browns.
  • Dark Skin – Plums, chocolates, reds, crimson-oranges.

Selecting Blush Colour

Again, match skin tone instead of going with the hottest trends. Orange may be fashionable, but skip it if it casts an ill tone over the skin.

  • Fair Skin – Beige, tawny, and pink tones.
  • Olive Skin or Golden Undertones – Warm brown, almond, and copper shades.
  • Dark Skin – Plum, auburn, deep bronze.


Choosing the Right Foundation Shade

For teens who feel they never quite get a natural-looking shade of foundation, they can try going to the makeup counter of the local department store. The technician at the counter can offer guidance. The difficulty here is that the shade may be specific to that company’s brand.

See if the foundation looks natural, but avoid buying at that moment. Go outside to check the makeup in daylight. At home, look at the colour under the lights in the living room, bedroom, and even in the bathroom.

If budget is a concern, go to a nearby drugstore with a friend or relative who either does a great job on her makeup or who has a trustworthy sense of colour. Test two or three different colours along the jaw line for the colour that best blends with the skin tone. (This is why a friend is useful – they’re at a better angle and can see the test colours.) When you are done with this, you are all set to look attracting and beautiful.

Closing Remarks:

When selecting makeup shades, teens should look for colours that complement their skin tone and eye colour. While it can be fun to experiment with a variety of colours, using basic colours ensures a natural-looking appearance. So, choosing the right colour that suits you and go with your personality and your type of skin is very important. It will surely make you more beautiful and look so attractive.
