A bunch of my friends started wearing makeup to school, but I don’t know if I should start wearing some or if I should wait. . . . I don’t even know how to wear makeup! —Crazily Confused
Dear Crazily Confused,
Hmm, this is a tough one!
I guess it all depends on when you feel like you’re ready to start wearing makeup. Even though your friends are wearing it, you should totally listen to yourself on this one. Whenever you are comfortable and ready is the best time. Don’t start wearing makeup just because your friends are doing it.
But when you decide that you want to, ask your friends for some tips! Or, if you want, just go online and search video tutorials that guide you through the process of putting on makeup. For some super-cool beauty tips, check out Jen’s Beauty Booth!
And remember, when you do start wearing makeup, you are not covering yourself up with it—you are using it to highlight your best features and let your natural beauty shine through. Wear colors and styles that suit your own character, and not just products that are popular with your friends. If you aren’t sure what your brand is right now, it’s totally okay! Try testing a few techniques and styles of eye makeup, blush, foundation, and other products. And when you find your match, show it off to your friends so that they can join in!
Most of all—have fun with it!
Au revoir for now,
