MakeHerUp – Teen Beauty

At MakeHerUp we are always looking to pursue new beauty products and ideas to make sure we have something for everyone. One thing we have been missing is a teen section, with products for teens and reviews from teenagers on what they love right now.

Maybe you are a teenager looking for great, affordable products or have a teen in your life and want help finding the right products for them. Our new MakeHerUp teen corner will have reviews and products for the girls just starting their journey in the wonderful world of beauty products.

 Natalie’s Beauty Review:
I was able to somehow convince my friends daughter to take a box of products and try them all out. She let me know what products she loved and which ones were a bit lacking.

I loved the black nail polish, especially because it went on so nicely. I recieved tons of compliments on it but all minus 3 fingers had chips in them. Despite the chips I would definitely take the time to paint my nails again with this same color the next day. The silver glitter chunky nail polish was a perfect match to go with the black following the trendy different colored middle finger.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Opulent Lacquer Trio $18
A set of mini nail polish trios with glamorous colors, rich metallic finishes, and multidimensional textures.

Inspired by Pantone’s 2013 Plus Series Metallic Book, this season is all about the rich gleam of rose gold, the chilled shine of silver, and the fiery glow of bronze. These limited-edition nail lacquers are packaged in complementary trios, combining beautiful shades with eye-catching finishes: metallic, sparkle, and metallic-matte. Use each lacquer solo or combine these beauties for unique nail designs all your own.

 

I liked the Mark in a Whirl Lip Gloss because it added a nice pink tint to my lips as well as a smooth feeling.

Mark in a Whirl Lip Gloss $8
Swirls of two ultra-high-shine, shimmery shades combine in this limited-edition marbleized formula.

 

Mark Lash All You Want has become one of my favorite mascaras, it was extremely easy to get the look of nice long lashes. I usually get clumps in my lashes but i haven’t gotten a single clump with this mascara and it really lengthened my lashes.

Mark Lash All You Want $10
Lash All You Want mascara adds 20 times the volume to lashes!! Unique brush has bristles at the tip to get at the tiniest lashes.

If you’re looking for a mature look in eye liners, the Sephora + pantone universe brown eye liner (pencil) would be the one, it was a nice color and fitting for everyday use. the only draw back I saw was the pencil would dull very easily when being used.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Foiled Waterproof Eyeliner Set $30
A set of six highly pigmented, mega-metallic, waterproof eyeliners. Inspired by Pantone’s 2013 Plus Series Metallic Book, this season is all about the rich gleam of rose gold, the chilled shine of silver, and the fiery glow of bronze. The smooth formula contains polymers that effortlessly glide on color and lock pigment in place with a waterproof seal, and the ultra-creamy texture is perfect for blending or creating a precise, stylized line.

 

I enjoyed the Clairol Smooth hair cream because my hair had virtually no frizz the next morning (i used it at night), my hair was easy for me to work with an extremely soft. I really liked how it looked the next day, just the natural look of my hair was great and I received a lot of compliments.

Clairol Professional’s Summer Hair Color Handbook‏

Clairol Professional Colorist Nico of NYC’s Mizu Salon provides his must-know tips to get you and your readers hair color ready for summer. From hair color application methods to maintenance and protection techniques, he’s got you covered.

Have any questions or would like to interview Nico, please let me know!

Tip #1: “Before spending a day in the sun, slick hair back with a leave-in conditioner that contains SPF. This will protect the hair while intensely nourishing it.”

Tip #2: “Products with low pH levels- between 4.5 and 5.5- are safe for your hair color. Anything with a higher pH will strip your color.”

Tip #3: “If you’re a blonde and don’t have time or money to visit the salon every 4-6 weeks, use Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo and Conditioner. These products are great for preventing brassy tones and maintaining vibrancy in even the palest of blondes.” (Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights, $8.99, clairolpro.com)

Tip #4: “A big trend we’re seeing this summer is dipped ends in fun, bright colors. If your ends are already light and you want to add a pop of pink, blue, etc., dip them in a semi-permanent color like Clairol Professional Jazzing for a bright hue without the damage.” (Clairol Professional Jazzing, $5.99, clairolpro.com)

Tip #5: “Shampoo less or try a dry shampoo to keep your color looking radiant for longer!”

Tip #6: “To maintain bright blonde locks during the summer, anticipate the effects of sun, saltwater and chlorine on your hair. Consider getting a gloss treatment post-color service for a protective shell. This gloss will be first the first layer to wear down, which will keep your hue intact for longer.”

Tip #7: “To protect your hair color from pool and salt water damage, rinse your hair immediately after getting out of the water.”

Tip #8: “One of my favorite products to protect radiant color and to enhance your hair’s health is a color safe leave-in conditioner. What works for you may not work for your best friend, but there is a great color safe product out there for everyone with color treated hair.”
