When foundation isn’t working, I’ll try and using a tinted moisturizer to fix it – like I keep a lighter and darker tinted moisturizer (because, inevitably, most of us all have a few products that just don’t match that we forget to return!) and try to correct.  Sometimes if it’s a little light, I’ll use the right-colored powder to set and hope for the best.  If eye makeup isn’t working out, I try to apply mascara and see if that helps at all; if not, I just remove it and go makeup-free on the eyes (well, plus mascara!).  For lips, I’ll remove and redo.  If I’m rushed, I’ll just throw on a go-to gloss.

I was a late bloomer–I really didn’t get into makeup until I went off to college, so I had just turned eighteen!  I think it’s important to balance having fun and maintaining a young person’s self-image and self-esteem.  You don’t want makeup to become a crutch or give them the idea that makeup is required to be beautiful, but you don’t necessarily want to forbid them at all!  I would say subtle things like tinted lip balm, sheer gloss are great ways to start out when you’re young.
