    Default How to use make up properly

    My niece is 13 nearly 14 and she uses far too much make up despite being told its bad for her, doesnt look good etc. She puts it on and leaves it on all night and touches it up all the time. Is there any where she can go to be taught how to do it properly. She has panda eyes and thinks she looks so cool but she doesnt. Would pay for a session with someone.

    lots of local hairdressers will do makeup for weddings and stuff, nice and subtle, you could book her a session as a treat? plus if they have young assistants they could show her how to do the modern stuff without a trowel, and talk her through the cleansing routines .

    do they still have the make up counters in big boots and bentalls ect? they used to show you how to apply stuff and do makeovers, could be more expensive though.

    How about a subscription to a decent teen magazine? - I used to get my info from Mizz Magazine! Or a trip to a Clinique counter - their ranges are probably better for teenagers than some other brands and do free make up sessions (obviously they would like you to buy something too!). Go when they have Bonus time on - lots of freebies!

    I looked AWFUL when I was teenager of about 16/17, wearing tons of make-up and thinking I looked great. I was given a make-up book for Christmas (subtle, mum) and took no notice, 'cos I knew better. There are horrific photos of me still knocking around!

    It is the right of teenagers to look bleeding terrible There are some very dodgy pics of me back in the 80's. We call my sons girlfriend panda cos of the eyeliner. I think all you can do is wait for her to grow out of it. Good luck

    She is a good looking girl but the make up ugh. We dont want her to have skin problems later on, she already has sensitive skin and has had excema on her arm since her mum died. I think a good sessions with an expert would do her a lot of good. It is her birthday in feb and I thought I might get something for her birthday. I might be able to find something at the college, maybe as a model for a student what do you think.

    Sounds like a nice idea Jackie. Colleges arent too pricey and she will be surrounded by cool kids a bit older than her

    i think that's a great idea, they do hair really cheap at the colleges, must do make overs too , and its all supervised.
