Q:Hi Linda! I was wondering what you think is the proper age to start wearing foundation and concealer? I have been getting a lot criticism for wearing it (I'm 16 and I only wear it on special occasions or when I go out with friends)
Personally I had my first experience with makeup when I was thirteen for a school dance, but didn’t start wearing makeup officially until I was fifteen. Even then, foundation and concealer came later into my life, like at 18. Honestly, being the age you are I don’t see nothing wrong with you wearing foundation and concealer for special occasions. As long as you take care of your skin—since wearing foundation and concealer can make acne more prevalent—I think it’s fine. You should also look into BB Creams or tinted moisturizers, they tend to be lighter on the skin, and you can skip the foundation with that and only add concealer.
You should feel comfortable with it. As long as you do whatever people say is irrelevant. Whatever I say is irrelevant, since experiences with makeup vary from person to person. When I was sixteen I wore powder, pencil eyeliner and some clear lip gloss. My makeup game was a disgrace LOL.
