Pretty and fresh makeup is what I usually like to do for my younger clients. (11-15 yrs old) A young lady’s skin is usually flawlessss so sometimes just concealer and powder will do wonders. Other times if I have to even out the skintone, I will use a light weight/ light coverage foundation to do that. A bright pink blush always brightens up a pretty face.
For eye makeup I like to go less heavy, less dramatic. Groomed eyebrows are really important to frame the eyes since I usually go light on the eyes. False eyelashes are rarely used. (depends) A wash of neutral eyeshadow on the lids and eyeliner only for the top, for the bottom liner I just smudge some eyeshadow there and then coat top and bottom lashes with 2 coats of mascara!
Then for the lips, Pink/coral lipstick with lots of lipgloss keeps the look young and fresh and pretty. What every young girl should be! Kinda like you’re wearing makeup but not you know?! 🙂
One of my favorite sets by far this year!!! I am so in love with Myra and her photos. What a gem she is. Myra is going to go far, such a talented and beautiful young lady!
For the ballerina set, I put on false doll-like lashes for Myra and then put her longggg hair into a high bun. SO SO pretty!!!!
Then I quickly let her hair down and used a 1.5″ clipless curling rod to put loose waves into it for the next sets. Literally took minutes!
I did a romantic and soft makeup look using light smokey eyeshadow colors to enhance Myra’s eye color. Kept the blush to a minimal hint of pink and the perfect pink shade to go on her lips. She has the perfect face!
The models I work with range from 11 years old to 50-something years old. I cannot say enough times how much I love what I do! I have so much fun working on and chatting with everyone from all ages and all walks of life.
Makeup for a 12 yr old girl is different from a 20- something year old, 50 year old, etc. No matter what the age, they all are beautiful and so awesome to work with!
I’ll have to do a more detailed post on what I do for makeup for each age category.
