Beauty Gift Guide: Teens

2 Dec

Today we’re going to start what we hope is a helpful series – beauty gift guides! We’ll start out by focusing on teenagers. This is a time when girls first start getting into makeup and may be unsure what to try or how to use it.

Sephora Favorites – Best of Basics: This would be a great starter kit for a girl who is just starting to get interested in makeup. There’s a variety of things to try, including Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel, Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara and  Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, among other things. However it may start her off on a bad habit – addiction to Sephora. At least we can admit we have a problem.

Coastal Scents 42 Color Double Stack Shimmer Shadow & Blush: At just under $25, you get 42 shimmery eyeshadows and six blushes to play around with. Coastal Scents is a pretty reputable brand on the YouTube community, and with this price you really can’t go wrong. The bright colors would be fun for a teen, and she can also try out the different blushes to figure out what colors may look best on her. I think Michael Scott would call this a win-win-win.

Bobby Brown Teenage Beauty“: Maybe the teen in your life doesn’t need any more makeup. Maybe that teen thinks she’s Taylor Momsen and looks like a raccoon. Maybe she looks borderline streetwalk? Sometimes girls can get a little too heavy handed with the makeup early on, and this book may be something to set them in the right direction. But this gift would work with any girl who shows an interest in makeup. ($12.91 at Amazon)

e.l.f. Get the Look Sets: e.l.f. has a lot of reasonably priced makeup – We both love the $1 eyeshadow brush we got at Target. These Get the Looks sets cost $5 and come with everything you need for a complete look. For example, the Neutral Nude set above contains Nouveau Neutral eye shadow, clear brow mascara, eye liner in Coffee, smudge brush and an eye lash curler. This set is available in other colors that would be great for any teen.

e.l.f. Essentials Professional Complete Set of 12 Brushes: A brush set is always a good gift for a new makeup guru. These brushes are inexpensive, and definitely a great starting point.

Keep checking back because we plan to do several more gift guides!
