Natural Looks
All teenagers are blessed with young, radiant and flushed skin. Therefore, they should make an effort to keep their overall looks as natural as possible so as to retain their natural charm.

Conceal The Imperfections

Therefore, while getting ready for your 18th birthday celebration keep the concealer handy as in all probabilities you are going to need it. Choose a concealer that matches with your skin tone so that you can blend it nicely and make it totally unrecognizable.

Define Your Eyes
Eyes are one of the most prominent features of our face and you need to take utmost care while defining them as it can bring about a dynamic difference in your overall looks. Firstly, you should comb the eyebrows with a toothbrush or mascara brush in the upward direction and across. If there is any gap between your eyebrows, then fill it up with eye pencil so that it appears absolutely even. Thereafter, apply a thin line of eyeliner on your upper eyelids and mascara on the eyelashes to make it appear voluminous. Choose a soft and creamy eye shadow with a slight glitter in it. It will help in bringing out your natural beauty.
Blush Blush
Blushers are a must while getting ready for your 18th birthday party celebration. Smile and thereafter apply blushers on the apples of your cheeks. Blend the blusher nicely in circular motion and remember to end it up in the direction of the temple. Shades of pink are best suited for the teenager, but they can also choose any other shades according to their skin tone.

Lips
