Easy beauty tips for kids?

Asked by tylerandcason (94points) October 6th, 2010

I have never been determined to impress a boy more in my life. He goes to my school and I really like him.. But the thing is I’m in middle school and I’m not allowed to wear make up. So please no make up tips. I’m allowed to wear lip gloss and that’s it. And the thing about this boy is that he is really nice and I just REALLY like him. Sometimes he will say ‘oh hey what’s up’ but you know. Please give me some beauty tips or just any type of cool tips. And remember I’m in middle school.

Be confident, kind and funny. There’s beauty for you.

Be yourself that’s all you need.

Be smart, be self sufficient, be confident. Most attractive attributes you can have.

Arrgh. I remember that! Don’t talk extra loud when you think he’s listening.
Don’t rely on a friend to pass a message to him.
Do find out what interests him and join in on that (it’s sometimes easier to make friends with his friends than to talk to him directly)
If he likes things that don’t interest you at all, don’t pretend.
I had a middle school crush who I asked to go with me through a note and he said yes. We never spoke to each other except through stammering “umm… errr”. I think that’s the oddest relationship of my life.

Okay in my opinion… I don’t find make up that attractive on a women (I do just not a crap load like what most do today) I like to see girls have make up…just no so much where you can’t see the real person in the inside rather than seeing the falseness of the outside. But I basic cleanliness, and confidence would work for me. Just stay confident of this boy I’m sure he’ll notice your true beauty =)

Everything @Blueroses wrote and:
Don’t laugh at everything he says unless it’s truly funny to you.
Don’t smile excessively at him.
Don’t lurk him at school or online.

I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup either and so concentrated on keeping my hair, nails and clothes neat, worked on posture, walking, voice modulation, stuff like that.

@Vincent_Lloyd I was hoping you would respond to this. You have a much better perspective because you are a male teen than those of us who are much older. Your response was wonderful, IMO.

Is it true though? Do most guys your age prefer more make-up? I was really hoping that it was generated by females because of peer pressure rather than males liking it. There was just never a discussion around the topic, so I’d love to hear your perspective.

@Pied_Pfeffer thank you for that makes me feel more alive to hear great things like that :)

But to me I say yes since if you were most likely to see most of the girls around my school. They were LOTS OF MAKE UP. I don’t like a lot of it. It doesn’t bring out the true faces of what you should see. But most of the guys chase the girls with make up that make them look twice as pretty as they should be. It’s only a guess, but I’m not a total freak over girls with make up. I probably only know one or two guys that are like me and have the same opinion on what I think here. But I can’t answer without not doubting myself since I can’t speak for every guy around my age group.

In my own opinion I always thought that it was to make a guy notice the girl more. Or maybe just to cover up some minor blemishes the young lady has. there are many reasons on why they would ware make up.

I agree with all of the above! It sounds like a cliche, but be yourself and don’t pretend to be something else for attention or approval. I’d tell you this if you were 25, too, but the best thing to do is start up a friendship based on what you have in common. Hang out, have a good time, talk and be honest. See what happens, and have fun!

You don’t need makeup to look your best, you just need to take care of yourself and be healthy. Drink plenty of water, take care of your skin, hair, and nails. Wear the clothes you are most comfortable in (part of being who you are, not who you think others want to see), brush and floss your teeth. Wearing a lot of makeup can turn into a vicious cycle anyway, causing breakouts that you cover up with more makeup, which causes more breakouts…and on and on.

@Blueroses I had a boyfriend like that in 7th grade! He wrote me a note asking me to go with him. I wrote back saying yes. We’d never had a conversation. I spent one awkward recess (yeah, we still had recess in middle school!) standing near him and not looking at him, while he stood there not looking at or talking to me. Then I wrote him a note to break up with him the next day. Ah, young love!

How old do we have to be on this site? Because I wasn’t 13 until Freshman year of high school.

Even though Audrey Hepburn didn’t write this piece of advice that’s commonly attributed to her, it’s still wonderfully true:

For attractive lips, Speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, Seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, Share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, Let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, Walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.

As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.

And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!

@Seek_Kolinahr The site is supposed to be for 13 and up. I turned 13 early in my 8th grade year. I guess there’s no real way to police ages here. Heck, my 11 year old asked a question using my account once. It was quickly moderated because it was silly, but not being 13 didn’t stop her!

Blueroses's avatar

@MissAusten Oh yeah. There’s nothing like the awkwardness, elation and flat-out pain of your first crush! Anyone here who’s going to be completely honest about remembering it will have memories of it (as Bart Simpson said) simultaneously sucking and blowing.
I can’t go back there, and wouldn’t if you offered me a million dollars, but there are boys like @Vincent_Lloyd who like you better because you are friendly and interesting. That doesn’t help much when you are comparing yourself to Britney-clones but it will later work out.
hint: if you like boys with brains, don’t hide your own talents. You are in the generation that doesn’t have to pretend stupidity to get a boy’s attention.

I have learned that there is an actual equation for beauty.
It is 50% health, 25% confidence, and 25% genetics.
Be yourself, be joyful, be healthy, and you’ll be beautiful.
Good luck to you!!

I think our beloved friends have given you the best advice that could ever be given. Sweetie, the fact that you are young and healthy is BEAUTY ENOUGH. Keep up your personal hygiene, be natural, keep healthy in every way you can. That’s it, you are already beautiful, no need for anything more!

Be funny, drink lots of water to help your skin glow, confident… Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder it’s all about personality and your true beauty will start shinning.
