I think it’s really easy to get colorful, long-wearing eyeliner across price points, and it didn’t always seem that way (it felt like more budget-friendly options were in your standard black/brown range). While nowhere near where they should be, many brands have expanded and started to release foundations in greater shade ranges (but many are still quite behind!). I think matte lipstick has improved, but if you want the really flat, matte finish, then maybe a little less in the way of improvement.

Thanks to Jessica for today's question!

Is there an appropriate age to start wearing makeup?

Kind of? I think it’s important that one develops a healthy attitude towards the physical/exterior concept of beauty, but people mature at different ages, go through different experiences at different times. I think if it’s someone very young, makeup as a creative outlet makes sense, and of course, young people experience things like acne and teasing. They should feel comfortable (and confident) using concealer or wearing a brighter lipstick if it helps restore some confidence as well. It’s tough at any age, because one has to balance the idea of the fun/creative side of makeup and that makeup is, in many ways, designed to improve what you have.
