When I was a teenager, one of the things that I loved most about going back to school was getting to show off a fun, new look. I was pretty clumsy with makeup in my teen years, but I still had a few must-have products! My favourite was COVERGIRL Pressed Powder in Classic Ivory and I used to love wearing it paired with black eyeliner and lip gloss. It may have been a somewhat gothic look, but it suited me at the time!
Fashions may have changed since my youth, but the thrill of trying new makeup for the big first day back at school is still there! And this year, Walmart is the top stop for all your teen’s favourite beauty products from Pantene, COVERGIRL, Olay and Venus! Even better, COVERGIRL Make-up Pro Veronica Chu and Pantene Consulting Stylist Justin German have some great tips to help your teen make the most of that first day back!
1. Every great beauty look starts with a great regimen
- Following a daily hair care regimen is the basis of great looking hair! One of the staples of this is a shampoo and conditioner like the Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner – I love this collection because it’s designed to repair hair, control moisture levels and prevent damage for a soft, smooth, moisturized feel. This makes it a fantastic option for girls experimenting with new styles and putting their hair through its paces so it looks healthy and strong. – Justin German
- Similarly, great makeup starts with great skin. For young women in their teens or early twenties, their bodies are still growing and factors like stress and hormonal changes can cause skin to act out. I always recommend following a cleansing routine morning and night, followed by a good moisturizer. One of my favourite cleansers is the Olay Total Effects Refreshing Citrus Face Scrub – the oil free formula won’t clog pores and cleanses without over drying. For a moisturizer, apply the Olay Total Effects Featherweight Moisturizer – I like this one because it’s super light-weight and includes an SPF for added protection. – Veronica Chu
