Yep, it's Back-to-School time, where kids wear heavy, suffocating Fall/Winter knits during an heat wave...and their face is over-active with sweat glands and hormones. This is when kids learn to suffer for style and fashion.
Here are some options to lessen the pain and the humiliation while boosting their self -esteem. Some of the stuff is refreshing and bright, that you may want to "borrow" from the kids to boost your adult radiance.
What's really cool, the makeup is innovative as they are all-natural as they are portable and affordable that you can actually buy a second set for yourself.
Charcoal is the trendy ingredient in cleansing right now. For a physical, external cleanser and scrub, charcoal binds to the pollution stuck and glued to your oily pores then unplugs the pores while you scrub then rinse that gunk away. It's great for skin coated in rush hour pollution.
Formed by a trio of professional mom, where one of them is a mom dermatologist, PREP Skincare/Cosmetics is an introduction skincare for tweens who are about embark into puberty. This is a good training regiment to get them into good skincare hygiene.
It's effective as it is gentle due to P.R.E.P. purifying daily cleanser's sugar based surfactants. It washes away dirt and oil without disrupting the skin's protective layer. The sugar based surfactants are extra gentle, non-drying and non-irritating and can be used on the skin every day.
Wholesome enough for adults with sensitive skin.
Tarte To Go Deluxe Cheek Stain in Energy, left, is an unsung heroine. Deceptively simple yet so simple to use as it is high-tech as it is all-natural...and cheap. As in good cheap that any tween and teen...and adult can buy multiples of it because a tube only costs $10 a pop.
A quick dab and a sudden swoop on the cheeks impart a rosy radiant glow that enhance a tween's already youthful glow or give an adult a youthful glow thanks to...
- t5 super fruit complex™: a proprietary blend of the five most active antioxidant-rich superfruits (maracuja, goji, açaí, acerola, and pomegranate), this complex delivers anti-aging and skin-restorative benefits to skin with each application.
- Maracuja: rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs) known to replenish, rebuild, and brighten skin; high dose of pure Vitamin C gives the appearance of brighter skin; powerful anti-aging elixir promotes active skin recovery and rejuvenation; maximum hydration quenches dry skin
Destined to be classics because you can still find them in both Sephora and Ulta, Tarte's LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint and Gloss.
Both the LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint and Gloss turn your lips a youthful rosy pink, thank to the plant bio-nutrients, vitamins, and essential oils rich in emollients, it quickly absorbs into lips delivering a surge of moisture on a cellular level, while boosting peptides to stimulate skin’s own regenerative system and assist in the formation of collagen.

Since these are limited edition and they will be a big hit on Awards Season's red carpet, especially for the rocking Grammy Awards, you better get these while you can.
If you want the healthy, all-natural benefits and effectiveness of the original LipSurgence Skintuitive line but in a more sophisticated, grown-up shade that can carry you into happy hour, cocktails with the girls, and a date...or a couple of dates, grab Tarte's Energy Noir LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint and Gloss.
Instead of adolescent pink, think of plumping plum and a healthier version of the noir-classic Vamp.
These Energy Noir Lip Tint and Gloss are a good investment because a simple swipe of the plum lip tint then a quick slick of plum tinted gloss then a simple black eyeliner and mascara is all you need for a grown-up look. They're Tarte's answer to the classic Black Honey Lip Balm that is universal on all skin tones. Energy Noir Lip Tint and Gloss are the all-natural alternative.
Toss in the accompanying the plum-rich Energy Noir Clay Palette and what you have is a potential rocking glam for the Grammys' red carpet, worthy of a Katy Perry.
What's even better, you can achieve the smoky, sultry look with a few items: the Noir Lip Tint, the Noir Lip Gloss and a simple stroke of an eyeliner then a quick swipe of classic black mascara.
Before you know it, you got the grown-up, evening look with a few essential products and each one of them good is good for your skin yet durable for a night out on the town.
Sexy but not an hot mess.
