When the baby girl is growing up she always watches her mom doing makeup & skincare and she also wants to use them all.But wait there is a certain age for applying makeup and skincare products.So don’t get confused here are some tips for the same.
Lipstick – though it contains harmful chemicals,8 to 12 years and teenage girls are allowed to apply lipstick on special occasions like festivals ,weddings or school’s annual functions.Now a day we have options for paraben or chemical free lipsticks.From teenage girls can apply lipstick occasionally.
Mascara – It contains harmful chemicals and specially waterproof mascaras can be harmful for adults also.It is applied on lashes and eyes are the most sensitive and integral part of our bodies.Due to Waterproof mascara,lashes can be damaged and it is difficult to remove also.On special occasions,mascara can be applied but the right age for mascara is 13 years or more.
BB/CC creams – It has light coverage and tint in it.Instead of foundation BB or CC creams can be applied. Makeup brush or sponge is not required.You can apply with fingers also and it is easy to remove also.Stays for 4 to 5 hours and give a natural look.Teenage girls from 13 years of age can apply BB or CC cream on special events or festivals.
Foundation – They are thick, creamy,heavy and comedogenic for young girls. I think 18 years of plus can apply foundation on big events.You need to have a makeup brush or sponge to apply it.You can apply with fingers though but it doesn’t give you flawless and natural look.Young girls under 18 can use BB or CC creams instead.
Makeup Primer – It is made from silicon and other chemicals.Primer shrinks the pores and helps makeup to stay longer.under 18 girl’s skin is very tender and not required primer at all.Frequent use of primer can loosen up the skin and pores may become larger.
Concealer – Generally Concealer is used to hide the discoloration , dark circles and pimple acne marks.It has many chemicals in it and if your skin is flawless,you don’t need to apply it.Concealer contains paraben,silicone and many other chemicals.According to me after 25 years or as per requirement you can start using it but I don’t suggest to use daily.
