10 top beauty tips for teens


Make-up artist Jade Tara Leggat advises.

1 Don’t try to cover pimples with foundation. Apply a light foundation and cover them with a matching concealer.

2 After you apply concealer over pimples apply powder to set the concealer and make it last longer.

3 Use a lightweight liquid foundation on dry skin and a mineral powder foundation on very oily skin.

4 If you share make-up always squeeze the product onto your hand then apply it to your face. This makes it less likely that you’ll get pimples or cold sores – your hands should always be clean when you apply make-up.

5 Have your eyebrows shaped at a salon then maintain the shape at home with tweezers.

Paul Hackett, owner of Paul Hackett Hairdressing in Boston, Cape Town, advises.

1  Don’t skip conditioner if you have oily hair; apply it only to the ends or use a leave-in conditioner on the ends.

2 The long, layered fringe is very in. Pin back the longest part of your fringe for school and wear a long fringe on weekends.

3 Don’t use oil-based styling products on parts of your hair that fall on your face because they can cause pimples.

4 Always tie back your hair when you play sport.

5 To get a textured, wavy effect make two plaits at night before bedtime. The following morning loosen the braids and lightly brush through your hair with your fingers.
