Teen Makeovers - Tabitha's Easy Natural Look

When it comes to Teen Makeup less is more.  It really doesn't take a lot to make a big impact.  With Tabitha's look we kept it soft and natural.  She has beautiful skin, and just needed a little bit of concealing under the eyes. 

To get the look....

Make Up Forever All Mat Primer on the face to keep oily skin at bay.
MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot in Painterly on the lids.

Make Up Forever HD Foundation in 118 mixed with a little bit of an oil free lotion to become more of a tinted moisturizer. (Budget substitute: Revlon Photo Ready Foundation)
Mary Kay Concealer in Ivory 2 just under the eyes to cover dark circles.  I use a fluffy brush to buff out the concealer and make it look more airbrushed.

Urban Decay Busted eyeshadow all over the lid just to the crease with a domed eyeshadow brush. (Found in the Naked2 palette)
Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes eyeliner in black just to darken the lash line. (Any black eyeliner will do.)
Maybelline Great Lash mascara in Black.

Filled in with MAC Cosmetics eyeshadow in Espresso with a small angled brush. (Any matte eyeshadow in your hair color)

MAC Cosmetics blush in Melba. (A peachy color)

MAC Cosmetics lipstick in High Tea. (Sheer beige)

To get the hairstyle....

Tabitha has dry and slightly coarse hair so I softened it up with a smoothing cream like Kerastase Lumiere Nutri-sculpt.  Then I just ran a 1" straightening iron to make the hair smooth and tame fly aways.  Finish with a light holding spray and a little embellishment on the side.
*Tip:  Anchor the clip on the side by criss crossing two bobby pins and then place the flower clip over that. 

Where to buy...

Maybeline - at drugstores everywhere
Kerastase - Found at high end salons
