Got a tween or teen ready makeup? We think a mix of nostalgia, high-end and drugstore is the way to go.
My daughter has just tipped her toe into wanting to wear makeup. Of course I have a few concerns such as skin care and what is and isn’t appropriate for a girl her age but I’m excited for her new interests. If you have a new makeup wearer, here’s our tween makeup gift guide!
Everything mentioned in this gift guide is something we’ve used before. You’ll find a mix of drugstore and high-end. The high-end selections are products without parabens, mineral oils or ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin.

Drugstore and High-End Makeup Favorites for Tweens and Teens
I’m betting you had a Caboodle when you were growing up, didn’t you? I did. It was purple and I had it well into my early twenties. It brings such joy to see them make a comeback lately. I bought my daughter this mini-sized Caboodle for her new products.
Start with Clean Skin Before and After Makeup
I have a very bad habit of going to be with my makeup still on. It’s gross and I’ve been paying the price for it lately with middle-aged breakouts.
I’m trying to set a better example by taking a few extra minutes each evening and show my daughter what a difference good cleansing and moisturizing can make.
We think skin care and makeup go hand-in-hand in this tween makeup gift guide. Here’s our picks for a few skin care products and accessories your tween should have.
