One of the most common questions that middle school girls often ask is, “how to put on makeup for beginners?” While this question may be easy to answer for anyone who uses makeup on a regular basis, those with little knowledge of can often come up with it.
In an effort to help those who wish to learn to apply their own make-up, here are some suggestions that can be used to start wearing makeup.

When do I start?
Most schools say that students aren’t allowed to wear makeup until high school, but the fact is that most girls start wearing makeup around the age of 13 (8th graders).
You’d better just stick to powder or maybe a little bit of eyeliner at the end of eighth grade. That way, if you want to start wearing makeup in high school, you won’t be wearing too heavy for your first day.
If you’re parents
If your kids want to wear makeup to school, it is your responsibility as a parent to ask the administration whether this is allowed. If they are not allowed to wear makeup at school, you will have to buy her some for home use only.
If your child is begging for makeup, chances are they’re ready to use it. Talk with them about when to wear it and how much before you take them shopping.
Be supportive and show plenty of enthusiasm. She won’t enjoy trying new things if she feels like you’re rolling your eyes the whole time.
Teach her about caring for her skin and what products she should use if she has acne or other problems.
Make sure she knows how to remove makeup before she leaves the house or goes to sleep. Be patient while she tries this for the first time.
Let your little lady experiment with looks at home first. She’ll have a much easier time trying new things if she’s in a familiar environment.
Don’t forget to have fun. Watching your little girl get excited about makeup is all kinds of cute.
Where to shop?
As a middle school student, you have no salary except the income from your parents. Therefore to keep costs down, you’d better buy the store brand rather than more expensive brands.
Also, look online at places like amazon or eBay. There are many companies that sell affordable makeup products.
If you’re the parents, talk to your little lady about what she likes or is thinking about trying, and then come up with a shopping list based on that. Make sure your little lady is using safe makeup products.
What kind of makeup can I use in middle school?
The sort of makeup you would experiment with depends a lot on your personal style. You may likely want to try blush, powder, eyeshadow, and lipstick.
A few pieces of advice: better not wear anything too bright when you go to school, and not wear a fragrance unless it’s a light scent.
There are so many beauty products out there. Here are some of the most popular products that may be allowed in your middle school.
- Nail polish
Make sure your makeup matches your school uniform and doesn’t go against what teachers allow at school.
Middle school can be a wonderful time for any girl. It’s the age where you’re just starting to become more aware of yourself and your changing body.
Instead of just throwing on some lipstick for the sake of making yourself look older, think about why you’re putting it on in the first place. Are you wearing makeup because you want to look good? Or are you wearing it because your friends are doing it and you feel like you have to match them? If it’s the latter, stop caring so much about what other people think and start focusing on how you feel about yourself.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with your look. You might want to go for something more dramatic, or maybe your parents are okay with subtle changes. Either way, you have a lot of freedom in middle school when it comes to your appearance. So go ahead and use that freedom. Just make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons.
