As girls blossom into beautiful young ladies and young women they are all about discovering and expressing their own personal inner and outer appeal.

While the focus, no doubt, should be placed on their intrinsic assets, the external are much easier to see. Some tricks of the trade for facing the world with confidence:

Choosing Your Colors:
Go “Pretty In Pink". This subtle shade flatters almost everyone. According to experts, teens should use make-up that is light, soft, and sheer.

Be The Talk Of The Town:
Use a sheer lip-gloss. Consider a subtle lip liner, one close to your natural lip color. If you have to blend your liner, it is the wrong color.
Do wear lip-gloss if you do have braces. Lip-gloss will keep lips pretty and moist and detract from your braces.

A Healthy Foundation:
Remember, foundation clogs the pores.
Avoid wearing foundation all over the face.
Do find a foundation that “vanishes” or blends into your face, and use this to cover just your blemishes.

High Brow Eyebrows:
Start shaping and tweezing your eyebrows at about 12-years old — but only a little bit.
Get professional help the first time you shape your eyebrows.
Avoid penciling in your brow with a color, especially one that is darker that your hair color.

Eye Candy:
Avoid black or liquid eyeliner, and don't line the entire eye.
Invest in mahogany eyeliner, or a shadow as eyeliner. Line only the top lid close to the lashes.

Framing Your Future:
Go for small and subtle
Consider a frame shape opposite from the shape of your face.

Black Teens
Avoid light colored foundations and translucent powder.

Asian Teens
Stay away from foundations with pink undertones.
Avoid skin-whitening creams.
Practice achieving a smudged, smoky liner on the eyes for enhancement.

Latin Teens
Bold is not always beautiful. Avoid daring colors; it often gives off as “harsh”.
Stay away from fuchsias or reds.
Consider more muted tones like plums and roses.
