Makeup Tips for Tweenagers and Teens

kelllllllllllllli2When it comes to makeup Tweens and Teens I know you want to start wearing makeup a lot sooner than when I was growing up! While I love MAKEUP and own a beauty candy shoppe …my message to you is to embrace your face! Don’t rush! Live in the moment and enjoy your beauty and the beauty of growing up today.

Here are a few tips and tricks to remember:

SUNSCREEN is a girl’s best friend.

Cleaning your face at night is a MUST.(Even if you don’t wear makeup.)Don’t go to sleep with makeup on EVER.

Learn to LOVE water.It is so good for your health and your skin.If you are not wild about it make spa water.It is so much fun to make at home.New recipe to follow in next blog.

YOU are what you eat…try and eat a balanced diet.And a cupcake sometime.

Take care of your skin.Don’t use deodorant bars on your delicate face.Use a soap bar that is made for the complexion.I love home-made bars by crafters like a skin Clarity bar that gently cleans and exfoliates.
If you have normal to very dry skin don’t use this type bar. Go for a goat’s milk hydrating bar or something like a Dove soap.

A face mask is a must. I love to wash away impurities and clean my skin with a clay based mask.

If you are a 8,9,10,11 or 12 years old:SORRY…you don’t need to wear ANY makeup except a lip gloss,balm or lip conditioner. YOU are beautiful they way you are.

If you 13 or 14 years old you can use a soft lipstick or lip gloss and soft shade of blush is fine.

If you are 15,16,:a pretty lipstick,gloss,blush and a kiss of a neutral pretty eyeshadow is fine.Mascara for special occassions.Clear mascara is another option for brows and lash definition.

NO FOUNDATION for any age below 15 years old. Yes,really.Your lashes are beautiful.

18 is the perfect age to start to wear: A dash of tinted moisturizer,beauty balm,or a soft application of foundation is fine.A lipstick or gloss,one pretty eyeshadow to highlight the eyes. Mascara in the form of tubes.(easy to remove and does not run) A kiss of blush to the apple of your cheeks.
Rice powder to set your makeup or a setting spray.

Beauty Note: STAY AWAY FROM black mascara or liner unless it is in the evening or if you want to make your eyes look defined but smaller.Opt for a navy,teal,eggplant mascara and they will always make your eyes look bigger.Don’t overdo mascara and look like tarantella eyes.It is not a pretty look.

Please note: As a professional makeup artist I highly recommend and am in beauty love with the magic of rice powder. It tones down shine,makes your makeup last longer,is fabulous for girls or guys with acne or even a mature woman.

Concealer or cover-up is optional at your age. If you do need it buy it in the form of a lipstick tube.Easy to apply and is used for undereye circles and for blemishes.

Don’t wear chipped nail polish.Keep those nails looking good with a sheer metallic shade.These shades don’t show chips.
Or try a bold or hot new color.

Go for a makeup lesson and have someone teach you the RIGHT way to take care of your skin and how to do your makeup for every day.

Look your age! Don’t do your makeup over the top or worse yet be a CAKE FACE!

You are only YOUNG and your age once! Enjoy the ride.
Have fun and kiss & makeup!

Day 7 to more beautiful skin!

Drink up! Proper and daily hydration is a must for healthy skin and more. Stay hydrated and drink water daily. Women and men need to be aware winter not just a heat wave is an important time of year to keep fluids flowing. No beer doesn’t count. Water is the fountain of youth and nature’s best kept secret.

DON’T LIKE WATER? Really? I love it and live for it. Make your own Spa Water like they serve at chic and infamous spas all over the world. My fav’ is water infused over night with slices of lemons,orange and a mini bundle of mint muddled. Strain and pour yourself a glass of this cool, refreshing and delightful water.

His Eyes were glazed over!

I so wish I had taken a photo to show you. He (my husband) WAS back to the SPA.

Working seven days a week and not allowing much ME time, I insisted my husband join me for SPA week last week at the Ponte Vedra Inn SPA in sunny Florida.

We arrived around noon time for check in bathing suit in hand and ready to escape. I booked an appt. for an Old World Exfoliating body treatment to slough off dead skin cells , detox and moisturize to  shed away his stress. I WANTED my sweetie back. The nice guy whose on a life high… Not Mr.Tension!

The guy who helps Santa every year! 

After you are welcomed back to PARADISE by the spa receptionists and locker room attendants. (Though we were 45 minutes from our home.) We felt we had landed on a private Island. We got undressed into their cozy spa robes and slippers. 

This spa is awesome and breathtaking. It’s design and layout makes you succumb to RELAX and be taken away for the day. He rejuvenated in the whirlpool, steam room and sauna. “Good Bye to toxins and Hello sweat”. He melted like the witch from the Wizard of OZ !

He drank, Spa water, ate fresh red apples and relaxed beside the pool.He swam his laps and enjoyed a cool afternoon in the sun. It was a gorgeous day!

Later, he joined me for a late lunch in the spa lounge cafe.  The menu was delightful and delicious as usual.

He had the salmon cooked to perfection. I had a unique salad with watermelon, chick peas and lathered in lovely dressing greens. Endless sparkling water was served along with a yummy roll.

He came out glazed eyes,starry-eyed and…  he was Prince Charming again.

THANKS  to Ponte Vedra Spa and INN you did it again. Can’t wait to go back…we  feel awesome and still are daydreaming about our time in the sun and at your spa.

This time to partake of the spa and all its amenities BEFORE the holiday rush and to buy gift certificates! If you come to sunny Florida or are passing through over the holidays or early next year. Discover this beautiful place. A real spa! A gorgeous SPA  boutique AND services to relax and delight your senses.

Love yourself, take care of yourself…if you don’t , WHO will?
