Mother-Daughter Makeover Extra Tips
Tina's TipsFor Moms
- Follow a daily skincare regimen that addresses your specific needs. For example, if your skin is dry, try a cream cleanser and a heavier moisturizer. And if your skin is sensitive, try a gentle cleanser and a moisturizer with calming ingredients like calendula.
- Want to make your eyes look young and bright? Carefully blend concealer over eye cream.
- Tinted moisturizer is ideal for light, natural coverage.
- Black eyeliner can be very glamorous, but it can also make you look much older. Swap it for a neutral brown, plum, or gray, which will define your eyes without looking harsh.
- You can wear any makeup color -- so long as you choose tones that complement your skin. Warm complexions look beautiful with warm neutrals, while very fair skin should opt for slightly lighter colors.
- A lot of teenagers use overly drying skincare products. Since this can actually cause the sebaceous glands to overproduce oil, look for a lightweight moisturizer, ideally one with a built-in SPF.
- A concealer with salicylic acid not only covers pimples but also keeps the skin clearer for longer.
- Use your tweezers with care. Only pluck brows that are strays and avoid plucking into the shape of your brow.
- With makeup, less is always more. Use soft colors and don't completely cover up the skin. Instead, enhance it!
- Choose shadows that complement your features, not your outfit. It's not necessary to be too "matchy."
