If your teen wears any make-up, make sure it is lightly applied. Too Much foundation or powder will not look good and is impossible to retouch well. Make-up should have a natural, fresh look. It is okay to conceal blemishes, but don’t worry about them too much since they are easily removed during photo retouching. Mascara and eye-liner in browns or black is fine but no heavy liner. No colored eye shadows. Colors should be neutral tones. Lip stick should match natural lip color. Light gloss is preferred. All children and teens should apply some chap stick or lip moisturizer so lips do not look dry.
