Teen Beauty Tips with Bobbi Brown

For many girls, the teenage years are marked by a new focus on fashion and beauty.

Makeup artist Bobbi Brown recalls her own style transformation: "I spent a lot of time trying to figure out my look," she says. "I went from parting my waist-length hair down the middle and wearing chunky jewelry to dressing the part as an eighties Madonna wannabe."

In addition to clothing, makeup can play an important role as teens come of age. Bobbi shares three easy techniques specifically for girls who are just getting started with makeup.

Bright Lip
"There's nothing easier than a sheer lip color to make you look pretty," Bobbi says. Try starting with a clear gloss or balm, which is a subtle way to highlight the lips. "For girls, matte lips aren't necessary -- I'm more a fan of sheer pinks and berry stains."

Bright Eye
Bobbi encourages girls to be bold in their eye makeup choices. Eyeliner is especially effective to really make eyes stand out. "Eyeliner defines their shape so eyes appear larger and more vibrant," she says.

Smoky Eye
"Teens want to achieve the smoky-eye look they see on models and on celebrities," Bobbi says.

    I think it's sad when we encourage our young girls to wear makeup. They are just as beautiful without it.

    She never once said it was wrong not to let your child wear make up. She is simply giving tips for those who do.

    Bobbi is great with makeup but it was inappropriate for her to countermand a parents' child rearing decision about not letting her daughter wear makeup at an early age. What Bobbi wants to do with her children is her decision but she doesn't raise my kids!!
