Teen Makeup!

Hi Everyone! I had a fun day today- I got to speak at the Southern Illinois Women's Teen Conference! :) I had a breakout session all about teen makeup, and so I wanted to do a blog providing some product suggestions to those who were in my session! This should all correspond with the handout you received. If more than one product suggestion is given, it doesn't mean you need both... just a couple of options! All are available at drug/discount stores unless specifically noted.

Not a teen? These tips will put you on your way to a quick, natural look that's also inexpensive. I'll probably do a video tutorial showing these steps as well! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog, and WELCOME to anyone who's new! :)

*NEW* a video tutorial showing the steps I taught at the Teen Conference!


How to develop a makeup routine that's quick, easy, and inexpensive!
  • Tinted Moisturizer (a light base, that's really 2 products in one!)
-Cover Girl CG Smoothers SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer
-Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF 30 Tinted Moisturizer
  • Concealer (apply lightly where you need it, blend with fingers)
-Revlon PhotoReady Concealer Stick
-Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer (this brand is only at Wal-Mart)
  • Powder (dust lightly all over- especially the T-zone)
-ELF Translucent Mattifying Powder (Target, eyeslipsface.com)
  • Bronzer/Blush (A light dusting of bronzer all over and blush on the apples of cheeks)
-ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzer (Target, eyeslipsface.com)
-Cover Girl Cheekers Blush
  • Eye Primer/Shadow (a natural daytime look can be achieved with just 1 or 2 shades!)
-Palladio Herbal Eyeshadow Primer (Sally Beauty Supply)
-Wet 'n Wild eyeshadows, or Cover Girl eyeshadows
  • Soft Liner (Apply close to the lashline and smudge for a natural effect)
-Cover Girl Perfect Point Plus eyeliner
-Revlon Colorstay Pencil eyeliner
  • Mascara (Wiggle the brush back & forth to really make it work)
-Maybelline One by One Mascara
-L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara
  • Lips (A tinted lip balm is effortless to use!)
-Palladio Herbal Tinted Lip Balm (Sally Beauty Supply)


Take it up a notch for special events!
  • Shadow Contouring (adding a deeper shade to the crease instantly kicks up the look)
  • Smokey Liner (give the eyeliner a little extra smudge under the lower lashline)
  • Give the Face a Glow (apply highlight powder to cheekbones- check out Physician's Formula Happy Booster face powder)

In our teen makeup session, we also discussed how to find the right products in the drugstore and save money in the process! All of that information was from a past blog post on BeautyBroadcast.net titled "5 Tips for Drugstore Makeup Shopping"... one of my very favorite blogs that I've done! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, and I hope this info is helpful to you as you build your makeup routine! A special thank you to Katie Walls for serving as my model for today's session! She looked gorgeous!

  6. Wish someone would have put something like this together for me when I was in middle school! This would have saved me from many makeup mistakes, such as TOO much eyeliner and too much glitter, haha. This is great for anyone who is just getting started with makeup application. Fantastic job Emily.

  7. I love your videos, they are always super informative.In the video you are using maybelline define a brow, I was curious what color you use? I have used maybelline eyebrow pencils in the past and even the medium brown shade was too light for my medium brown hair.

  10. Emily, I love your videos and blog - and have been following them since '09. Your taste for beauty products whether they're high end, drug store or whatever is great and you always give me great ideas. I wanted to ask you something a little off topic, I'll be a junior in college this year and am stuck between an english education - and broadcast journalism major decision... broadcast was always my dream - how is the market for work in broadcast ? Is it difficult to find work, I'm so afraid to go threw, get the degree - and then not be able to become employed... random, but, I figured you were the best person to ask!


    Thanks again for all the helpful information, you're the best!

    -Nicole
