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.
