Teens, Get Ready To Impress With This Fool-Proof Makeup Guide
Unlike the previous generations who learned by watching others do it, today's youth immerse themselves in an ever-evolving beauty culture, embracing trends that ping-pong from "glass skin" to "dolphin skin," "cold girl" to "soft girl," and "glazed donut nails" to "lip gloss nails."
These Baby Beauty Fanatics, as ELLE Magazine describes, are not mere spectators; they are active participants, scrolling through short-form clips, experimenting with bold colors, and seeking authenticity from influencers who resonate with their evolving sense of self.
In this makeup guide, we'll explore the essentials for creating a flawless look that reflects creativity and individuality.
Perfecting the base
Before diving into the world of makeup, it's essential to begin with a clean and moisturized face. Generation Alpha knows the importance of skincare, and they're all about that glow! Start with a gentle cleanser, followed by a hydrating moisturizer to ensure a smooth and radiant base.

These girls are all about achieving that flawless complexion. Opt for a lightweight or skin-like foundation or tinted moisturizer that provides coverage without feeling heavy.
Don't forget to blend, blend, blend for a natural finish! Pro tip: Consider incorporating a beauty blender for that airbrushed effect.
Make a statement a.k.a. accentuate!
Generation Alpha is all about self-expression, and that includes experimenting with bold and vibrant colors. Embrace eyeshadows, eyeliners, and mascaras in a rainbow of hues. Pastel pinks, electric blues, and neon greens are all fair game – mix and match to create a look that resonates with your personality.

Use a brow pencil or gel to shape and fill in your brows, framing your face with confidence.
Lips that speaks volumes
Today’s teens love experimenting with lip colors that speak to their individuality. From glossy finishes to matte lipsticks, the options are endless.
