30 Beauty Tips for Teenage Girls

30 Beauty Tips for Teenage Girls

It’s easy for teenage girls to create looks that are natural and flawless; however, it’s just as easy to create looks that are cakey and overdone. After all, teens are battling acne, worrying about boys, and stressing out over big tests. With all of this being said, sometimes it’s tough for teenage girls to keep up with the latest beauty trends on top of everything else.
So in an effort to make things a little bit easier, here are 30 beauty tips for teenage girls that are broken down into several different categories (skin care, makeup, makeup products and hair care). But before we jump into this, let’s take a quick look at the underlying theme of true beauty – confidence.

Confidence and Self-Esteem

Beautiful Teenage Girl
While anybody can learn a few tricks with their makeup brush, not everybody knows how to carry themselves afterward. In short, confidence and self-esteem are also important traits in regards to beauty.
Confidence is what gets girls noticed, and self-esteem is what gives them confidence. All it takes is being willing to try new things and get out of your comfort zone. Everyone has insecurities, but accepting your imperfections is key to unlocking your true potential. Now onto the beauty tips for girls!

Skin Care Tips

First on the list of our beauty tips for girls are some skin care essential for you to enjoy!

Tip #1 (Tissue Test): One of the most important aspects of taking care of your skin involves knowing exactly what skin type you have. The five basic skin types are sensitive, normal, oily, combination and dry. When you're trying to diagnose your skin type, do a simple test in the morning with a tissue after waking up. This is the easiest way to tell which of the five basic skin types you have. To perform the test, just unfold the tissue, and lay it so that the tissue covers your face. Then press it onto your skin, and remove the tissue to see what it reveals. Use these descriptions to find your skin type in order to take proper care of yourself.

Tip #2 (Sensitive Skin): Your tissue will have little-to-no oil left over from your skin. Sensitive skin can become a challenge to treat since it often feels tight and dry with reddish-scaly areas. In addition to this, sensitive skin can itch and tingle with spotty breakouts. If your skin becomes inflamed or irritated easily, then you probably have sensitive skin.
  • Sensitive Skin Care Tips:
    Avoid facial exfoliants and cleansers with sand or peach pits to avoid worsening your red skin; instead, use cleansers made with castile soap because it is soothing and gentle on your skin. Do not use facial cleansers that contain large amounts of benzoyl peroxide, alpha-hydroxy-acid (AHA) and/or beta-hydroxy-acid (BHA) since these can irritate acne further. Unfortunately, it can be hard to find a facial cleanser that treats sensitive skin in drugstores because these are the most common ingredients in many cleansers and exfoliants on the market.
Tip #3 (Normal Skin): The tissue will have no oil left over from your face, and your skin will feel plump, glowy and elastic. Lucky for you, this skin type is the easiest to treat and manage because it continues to have healthy circulation and a clear complexion - even with little-to-no care involved. Those lucky enough to have the normal skin type will continue to have clear skin as they age.
  • Normal Skin Care Tips:
    The best thing to do if you have normal skin is to wash it every day - morning and night - with gentle soap so you don't irritate the balance that your skin already has. Use a toner if you like, and of course apply a moisturizer daily.
Tip #4 (Oily Skin): If your tissue has traces of oil from where your nose, forehead and cheeks were, then you likely have oily skin. Oily skin is a problem for a lot of girls since it causes skin to look shiny, coarse, thick, greasy, and often leads to uncontrollable breakouts.
  • Oily Skin Care Tips:
    To keep your skin looking young and supple, while also keeping it from wrinkling as you get older, use proper facial washes designed to treat oily skin. You won't have any trouble finding treatments for oily skin because there are a variety of products to choose from. But don't use the same soap you use on your body since it will dry your skin out, and leave you with unwanted pimples! Use an exfoliating scrub once or twice a week to combat breakouts.
Tip #5 (Combination Skin): If your tissue has oil on the areas reflecting your nose and forehead only, then your skin type is combination. You are amongst most women, who have a combination of dry and oily skin, and have to use different kinds of care for each zone of their face.
  • Combination Skin Care Tips:
    Your dry zones are typically your cheek and eye areas, and these won’t need much attention until the age of 30 or older. The other areas of your face are known as oil zones, and they require daily cleansing and weekly exfoliating with a product designed for oily skin.
Tip #6 (Dry Skin): Girls with dry skin will have a clear tissue, but also skin that feels dry, tight, and flaky once the tissue has been removed. Dry skin is problematic because it is known to age and develop wrinkles faster than oily and combination skin.
  • Dry Skin Care Tips:
    You can easily fight off wrinkles and aging by developing healthy skin care habits that involve plenty of moisturizers containing hypoallergenic ingredients. Use lukewarm water to cleanse with since hot water irritates skin. In the winter, these tips are especially important to keep in mind!

Makeup Tips

Makeup is what teenage girls love the most, why? Because...
Makeup is used to make women appear older, sophisticated, trendy, and of course, it's used to hide pimples, scars, and red areas on the face. Finding the right makeup to use for your own special complexion is difficult because there are hundreds of different brands, colors, formulas, and prices to consider before making a purchase. There are a number of makeup items you can use during the application process including, but not limited to, foundation primer, foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss.
Tip #7 (Choosing your Foundation): You can find foundation in a few different formulas including liquid, whipped, cream and powder. Liquid foundations typically come formulated specifically for every skin type; however, liquid foundation isn't always the best choice. Use your skin type as a guide to find the best foundation formula because if you're using the wrong foundation, your skin can look similar to a powdered doughnut, or it can even look like you're wearing a mask. In order to keep any of this from happening, learn how to find the right foundation for your skin type.

Tip #8 (Foundation for Dry Skin): If your skin is dry, using a hydrating powder, stick, or an oil-based liquid foundation will give a positive result. Sticks and liquids have both a moisturizing and creamy texture; the hydrating powders are specially designed to release moisture to the skin, while covering better than a normal pressed powder. If you choose to purchase hydrating powder, make sure the packaging says something similar to "compact makeup" or "foundation".

Tip #9 (Foundation for Oily Skin): Liquid or powder foundations that are labeled oil-free are ideal for oily skin. Mineral foundations will also work well on oily skin since these products absorb excess oil to give your face a smooth, matte finish. These foundations are good for covering up acne, or when used as a concealer for dark under-eye areas. For skin that has frequent breakouts, use foundation containing salicylic acid to dry the oil-producing glands that create pimples.

Tip #10 (Foundation for Combination Skin): Combination skin is best covered up with powder, whipped or cream foundation. You will get strong coverage with any of these products, as well as the added bonus of intense moisturizing benefits. Plus powder, whipped, and cream foundations are all easy to apply, and are better choices than that of a liquid or stick foundation.

Tip #11 (Foundation for Sensitive Skin): If you have eczema, rosacea, or you’re highly prone to acne breakouts, then you have sensitive skin. Assuming you have skin that is tight, scaly, red and irritated, then try using a tinted moisturizer. Tinted moisturizers will provide you with light coverage, while also giving your skin plenty of moisture. Another option is to use mineral makeup such as the mineral makeup at; however, it’s possible for the mineral makeup to dry your skin, so in combination with this foundation, you should use a toning spray to set and lock in moisture throughout the day.

Tip #12 (Foundation for Normal Skin): For skin that has minimal problems with oil, acne or dryness, you'll be able to use almost any formula of foundation.

Finding Your Foundation Shade

The next time you're at the mall, find a makeup counter and try some of their different shades. When doing this, keep in mind that the skin on the back of your hand is the closest match to the skin on your face; so it's the best place to find a match if you're not wanting to apply lots of different shades on your face. Using natural light can prove to be difficult in a store or mall, but it will reflect more accurately on how the foundation really looks on your skin. It’s also important for you to have a clean face when you're experimenting with different foundation shades.

Tip #13 (Fair Skin Tones): Skin that is slightly translucent (having visible veins), pale, or sunburns easily is considered to be fair. The ideal shades of foundation for fair skin tones are ones that have pink or beige undertones.

Tip #14 (Olive Skin Tones): Foundations with beige, green, or yellow tones work well with Asian and olive skin tones. Powders that have peachy or pink bases warm up skin that looks unhealthy or pale.

Tip #15 (Medium Skin Tones): Neutral, beige, gold, and earth tone shades of foundation wear well on Latina or medium skin tones. If you're using powder, the powder should still be in the neutral earth tones; you might also consider using translucent powder to set the foundation.

Tip #16 (Dark Skin Tones): Mango or banana-toned powder will warm up darker skin tones. It’s worth mentioning that when cool colors are used on darker tones, the skin can turn out ashy so avoid these. Also keep in mind that it might be necessary to use two different shades of foundation if you have two different skin tones. Luckily, some foundations are available with two colors for easy blending.


Tip #17: If you have problems with dark circles under your eyes, concealer needs to be applied before foundation. If you are looking to cover up acne, the concealer can be applied after the foundation.

Tip #18: There are makeup brushes specifically made for the application of concealer; however, they aren't a must-have item. All you need for application is a q-tip, or even a finger will work fine when applying the concealer to acne. It’s important to be precise about applying the concealer directly onto the pimple, and not just the general area where you have a lot of breakouts.

Tip #19: It’s important to know there are concealers that offer medication to treat acne, as well as cover the pimples up. It is also worth mentioning the idea of using foundation that offers strong coverage so you won’t leave your skin looking cakey.


Everyone is born with bushes above their eyes, but it can be easy to make the bushes look like groomed shrubs. When it comes to your eyebrows, you have options, but don't go overboard with waxing, plucking or trimming. The worst thing you could do for your eyebrows is to kill the hair follicles by over-plucking them. The easy way to get perfect eyebrows is to use a brow kit that provides you with stencils, eyebrow powder and a brow brush; however, not everyone can afford to purchase a kit. Here are some tips on how to achieve perfect eyebrows.

Basic Eyebrow Grooming

A few things to keep in mind when maintaining your own eyebrows is to pluck one hair at a time, get as close to the root as possible, and pull in the direction of hair growth. If you have thin eyebrows, you can use eyebrow powder and stencils to fill them in; if you don't have eyebrow powder, experiment with your eye shadow to find a color that matches as closely as possible.
Use an eye shadow padded wand to make small strokes to fill in your brow. There are also eyebrow pencils that are perfect for filling in thin brows. Apply the color with small strokes beginning at the inner corner, then working towards the end. Use a brow brush to comb excess color off your brow, and then use a very small amount of brow gel or regular hair gel to finish off the look. If it’s the first time you're plucking your eyebrows, beware of the redness that will occur. Assuming you plan on leaving the house, be prepared to explain why your brows are red. Also, you can use a cold wash cloth to hold onto your brows to help close the follicle.

Find Your Eyebrow Shape

Tip #20: Take a straight object like a pen, eyeliner pencil or popsicle stick, and hold it vertically along the side of your nose. The object you've held up should reach your eyebrow to indicate where your brow should start.

Tip #21: Use the straight object again, only this time, line the object with the center of your eye (the pupil) because this is how you indicate where the arch of your brow should be.

Tip #22: To find out where your eyebrow should naturally end, hold the straight object up so that it makes a line from the corner of your nose to the corner of your eye. The object should reach your eyebrow to indicate where it should naturally end.

Tip #23: If your eyes are close-set, your brow will look better if it starts a little in from the corner of your eye. Your arch looks good if it is slightly outside of the center of your eye. Your brow looks best if it ends just a little past the outer corner of your eye.

Tip #24: For girls with eyes that are well spaced (an eye's width apart), start your eyebrow directly above the inside corner of your eye. Your arch looks best directly above the center of your eye's pupil. The brow looks good if it ends above the outer corner of your eye.

Tip #25: Some girls have eyes that are more than an eye's width apart, which is completely normal. Begin your eyebrow closer to the nose with your arch a little in front of the center of your eye. Your eyebrow looks best if it ends slightly above the outer corner of your eye.

Fingernails and Toenails

It may seem weird to hear that people judge others by their hands, but it is true. When you meet someone for the first time and shake their hand, it's the first thing that they notice about you. This being the case, having dirty hands isn't cool, so find out ways to keep your nails looking fresh and clean.

Tip #26: Never bite your fingernails! The reason why is because prolonged fingernail biting causes the nail to become misshaped and curved.

Tip #27: Use a nail file properly, and always go in the same direction when you are filing your nails. By doing a sawing motion on your nails, you're creating small tears in your nails that will eventually make them break off.

Tip #27: Push your cuticle up toward your skin daily to keep your nails from looking shaggy. This is easiest when your fingers are wet, thus making the ideal time right after you get out of the shower.
Tip #28: Keep your nails at a safe length that you're comfortable with by using nail clippers. When you're trimming your nails, don't try to clip the nail in one cut. Use multiple cuts until the nail is trimmed so that you get a nice shape.

Hair Car Tips

When it comes to beauty tips for hair, there is a simple truth you need to accept - not every day is a good hair day, but there are ways to make most days good, while also skipping out on the hot blow dryers, curling irons and flat irons (damaging to the hair). There are also easy hairdos that only take 5 minutes or less, but look like they took an hour to do like braids, buns and half-up-dos. One more thing worth adding is that there ways to make your hair smell good without using expensive hair products and shampoo. Now that we’ve covered all of this, here are a couple of good hair care tips for girls.

Tip #29: Create a chic pony tail by using an anti-frizz cream in curly hair, or curling cream in straight hair. Then tease your hair at the crown, and follow up by pulling the hair into a low ponytail. Leave a section of hair out on one side that is about a half inch wide, and use a clear ponytail holder to secure the ponytail. Use the hair you left out to wrap around the ponytail, and then hold the hair in place with a bobby pin.

Tip #30: Spray your favorite body spray or perfume onto your bristle brush, and comb your hair immediately afterward to make your hair smell fresh all day. If you have matching lotion, rub a little in your hands, and then put the excess lotion on your strands. This takes care of static, and gives your hair a delightful scent.

Skin Care: My Best Tips to Make Your Skin Look Younger

Skin Care: My Best Tips to Make Your Skin Look Younger

The right (& wrong) ways to cleanse, moisturize & exfoliate your skin

By , Guide

To keep your face looking as youthful as possible, you need to properly cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your skin while never leaving the house without at least 30 SPF sunscreen. I've dubbed this process "The Basic 4-Step Skincare Regimen," which I outline in this article. But before we go there, how you care for your skin is utterly dependent on the type of skin you have: oily, normal/combination, dry, sensitive or sun- damaged. Find out what skin type you have.

The Basic 4-Step Skincare Regimen Step 1: Cleansing

Simple is key here. You need to find a good cleanser that your skin responds well to, and stick with it: See the best cleansers for your skin type.
You can find a good cleanser at the drugstore. There's no need to spend $40 on a fancy wash. Avoid bar soaps as they tend to dry out the skin. According to Rona Berg, in her book, "Beauty," a French cosmetics executive once told her, "Soap should only ever touch your skin from the neck down." I agree. Choose a creamy cleanser if you have dry skin or a clear cleanser if you have oily skin.
Be careful not to cleanse too often, you risk over-cleansing skin, see signs you are overcleansing your skin. You really only need to wash your face at night to remove makeup and sunscreen, which can clog pores. If you have dry skin, consider cold cream like Pond's, which the French use. Simply apply cream, then wipe off, no water needed (if you have hard water, it can be especially harsh on skin). Most women prefer the water method: Use warm water to loosen dirt and clogged pores. Use a dime-sized bit of cleanser, then rinse with cool or lukewarm water. I personally swear by my Clarisonic Mia, as does pretty much everyone I know who has one.
Make sure to remove eye makeup with a proper makeup remover. The area around the eye is delicate so don't pull or rub too hard.

In the morning, a splash of lukewarm water is all you need (I find it's great for removing excess oils from your nightly moisturizing). Never wash your face with hot or cold water (both can cause broken capillaries).

Step 2: Exfoliate

Exfoliation is the step most people skip in their weekly skincare routine. But trust me, if you start properly exfoliating your skin, you will notice an almost immediate difference. According to Berg, one of the reasons men's skin looks more youthful than women's is because men tend to exfoliate daily when they shave.
I use a facial scrub weekly to exfoliate my skin, but I also find using a washcloth when I cleanse my skin works just as well. I simply put a dab of cleanser on a damp washcloth and massage the cleanser into my skin in a circular motion. After a quick rinse, any sign of dead skin is erased. You can also exfoliate skin via microdermabrasion, chemical peels and retinoids. In my article, How to Exfoliate, I share all my tips and tricks to proper exfoliation. Including why you should throw out the loofah.
See my list of the best facial scrubs and microdermabrasion kits.
Scrubs work by removing the top layer of dead skin cells that tend to dull your complexion. We find exfoliating skin once a week with a microdermabrasion kit keeps skin glowing year-round. Make sure you use a gentle scrub with tiny grains. Big grains in cheap scrubs can tear skin and cause more harm than good. My favorite microdermabrasion kit is made by Lancome.

In the hour it takes to get a chemical peel, you can take off five years from your face. Can't afford the price tag for a monthly peel? Try some over-the-counter peels that work over the course of a month. I prefer MD Skincare's.

Retinoids (such as Retin-A or the more moisturizing Renova) also work by removing the top layer of dead skin cells while also generating collagen in the skin. "Collagen is the skin's structural fiber," dermatologist Dennis Gross said in O Magazine. "As we get older, it breaks down, creating lines and large pores." Skincare experts disagree on all sorts of things, but most of them consider retinoids to be a miracle skin saver. I'm addicted to Retin-A, which I pick up in Mexico on my yearly jaunts.

Should you use a toner? Some people swear by toners, but many beauty experts do not (I once read a skincare expert claim, "toners are only for copy machines"). Toners are meant to remove all remaining traces of oil, makeup and dirt, but a good cleanser should do this. I firmly believe it's up to you. If you like the way your skin feels with a toner. Buy it. Use it. Enjoy it.

Step 3: Moisturize

While I know of at least one famous beauty editor who swore skin doesn't need moisturizer, basically everyone else I've read disagrees and is an adamant believer in it. A basic rule of beauty is that if you have dry skin, you should invest in a basic moisturizer. So how much should you moisturize? Your skin will tell you. When your skin is tight, it's crying out for moisture. Be careful not to over-moisturize -- this can clog pores.
See my list of the best moisturizers on the market.

Are eye creams necessary? Well maybe. Some beauty experts strongly recommend eye creams. Why? The skin around the eye contains no fatty tissue and is therefore very thin and susceptible to wrinkles. Special eye creams are formulated to "thicken" this area. Yet other experts (including the beauty editors of Allure in their new book) claim your daily lotion works around the eyes just as well.
See my list of the best eye creams.

Step 4: Apply Sunscreen

The #1 cause of wrinkles is sun damage, so it's important to use a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF from your early years on even in winter and on cloudy days. A great trick is to purchase two moisturizers: One for night and one for day that includes UV protection. Don't use moisturizers with sunscreen at night, the ingredients are not meant to be used 27/7 and can aggravate skin. When choosing a sunscreen, make sure it contains Mexoryl (found in my favorite sunscreen La-Roche Posay) or Helioplex, found in Neutrogena products.
