My honest opinion (humble one though!) is to go w/ lighter neutral shades. Almost nude colors. Just a little blush, e/s and a sheer, shimmery lippie... Although, I'm thinking about when I was 14 y.o., and I couldn't wear anything really then... Kids are WAY different than when I was 14, and that was 12 years ago! Maybe someone else will have a better suggestion. Post some pics so we can see what you did though *hint, hint*

i think it's ok to spice it up for special occasions. i guess it depends on how much makeup they wear now and if their parents allow it,etc. i know that when i was 14, i wore foundation, eyeliner..pretty much the whole deal. but my parents didn't care. i say if you're going with a sheer lip, give her a somewhat dramatic eye, like maybe some e/l in a dark, sultry color.

I'm with Aquilah... shimmery and sheer shades are the way to go with a 14 yr old. She might also require a tiny bit of concealer and maybe some mascara (especially if she's blonde)

I think that since its an event, there's nothing wrong with having foundation, es, lp, mascara, etc. etc. on. of course don't make it super bold but somewhat natural.

I think most 14 yr olds probably don't need foundation. If she has good skin, I would just dust with sheer powder or tinted moisturizer. If she has bad skin/acne scars/marks, I wouldn't go full face, only put foundation/ concealer where she needs it. In my opinion

It depends on her style. If she's a quite natural gal, use shimmery nudes, light makeup and a glittery gloss... If she's a mini-plastic (have you ever watched mean girls?) , she'll need a bolder makeup (but not over the top, otherwise she'll look like a young girl who stole mom's makeup and is trying to pretend she's older)

I honestly think 14 year olds shouldn't wear makeup at all, she could start with some lipgloss or tinted lip conditioner, a little shimmer on her eyes, curl her eyellashes.

Posted Image jennifer, you crack me up. but i agree, it looks pretty bad when teenagers wear alot of mu.

i would go with a concealer, to camoflage troubled spots,
maybe some mascara, and a little lipgloss.

I think a little bit of gloss and blush is good for a 14 yr old. Maybe clean up her brows if she's never plucked them?

Im 16 and I have a 13 year old sister, so I know what most of them wear... basically go simple! Depending on the girl I know my sister goes with the whole punk look one day and then light and pink the next! She doesn't wear blush or anything but I would say light pink, mascarea, clear lip gloss and maybe concealer if she needs it... make sure to tell her that they MUST take off there make up before bed though
