Let’s face, we all grew up playing our mom or big sisters makeup bag. But what age is it appropriate to stop playing and actually start wearing makeup. For some of us, lip balm and moisturizers are more than enough. Makeup Guru Margina Dennis gives advice on the perfect products at every age.

Ages 6 to 9: This is a great time to introduce a healthy skincare routine including cleansing and moisturizing; a flavored lip balm will suffice

Ages 10 to 13: This is a good time to introduce sunscreen and a clear gloss or tinted lip balm.

Ages 14 to 18: Even though teenage girls have a tendency to want to try to look older during this time, a lash defining mascara, BB cream or tinted moisturizer with sunscreen, thin eyeliner at lash line, a kiss of bronzer, and sheer pinky brown lip gloss is all that is needed to enhance their natural beauty.

Ages 19 to 21: Continue on with a great skincare and sun protection routine along with changing to a powder foundation, add concealer a warm pink or cool peach blush, mascara, lip stain, and a taupe shadow can create a quick yet fresh makeup routine.

Ages 22 to 25: Job hunting and graduate school call for stepping up the sophistication factor, yet still keeping it simple. You can’t go wrong with a well groomed brow, liquid foundation with SPF and medium coverage, concealer with SPF, dark brown or grey liquid liner, lengthening/thickening mascara, highlight on top of cheek bone and a matte lip.
