I am a teenager... I am pretty sure that you all know that. And lately I have been getting pretty sick of all of the magazine articles, videos, books, and just people in general that talk about "Teen Makeup"! I am annoyed with these for a few different reasons.
1. Most of the time, the people who are writing or talking about "Teen Makeup" are women who aren't teenagers themselves. There are a few different reasons why this bothers me. First of all, these women don't have the same hormones in their bodies that we have, which make our skin oily, and prone to breakouts, so a lot of the products that they use that rejuvenate their aging skin will make ours oily. Also, I do realize that at some point, these women were teenagers, but they were teenagers a while back, and times have changed - makeup is different, stereotypes are different, trends are different, and well frankly, the girls themselves are growing up in a completely different world!
2. Girls these days are wearing more mature makeup than their mothers did. But not only is the amount of makeup different, but the girls are different because they generally know how to apply makeup pretty superiorly, because they are watching so many makeup tutorials on the internet. So the amount of makeup that our mothers wore may not be exactly what is right for the modern girl...
3. Why should teenager's makeup be thought of any different than older women? Because the only way to show an example of teen makeup is by looking at the makeup that teens are wearing on their own. Sure, many people say that teens should wear loud fun colors - but those are more age appropriate for women of an older age. So the whole "Teen Makeup" thing is completely pointless in my opinion...
