Okay so I am 14 years old, and I haven't worn any makeup at ALL I am probably the most clueless person when it comes to makeup. I didn't know where to put concealer until yesterday, or what it was for lol. Anyways I have decided to start wearing makeup now, people get surprised when I tell them that I don't wear makeup. Because people think I do wear makeup when I don't. I just don't have any pimples, dark circles, redness, acne, or anything. People tell me that I don't need to, because I have a flawless complexion but I still want to. Just to make me feel older and maybe perhaps look my age because I personally feel like I am an 11 year old because I am really short I am 5ft. tall. And I have a bunch of freckles, so they make me look younger. But I am having a hard time on what to put on my face I can't decide. I don't know what makeup brands I like or what I exactly want to start wearing I mean I definitely know I want to wear mascara, & eye shadow but I'm not sure about foundation, or anything like that.
I also don't know what makeup colors to use on me either, I have a fair complexion, I have freckles, dark brown eyes, and red hair but its not like a orange red it's darker its closer to a medium auburn but there is a ton of red tint to it so it mostly looks red, and I also have blonde in my hair towards the bottom it's ombre.
Can someone please help me? Any suggestions?

First of all hun, dont wear ANY face makeup. Your skin is already flawless, and if you wear it daily while your young, it will drastically change your face negatively in a few years. I personally just stick to features "eyes, lips, eyebrows" for regular days. (Mostly just eyes).
I recommend you start experimenting with your eyes, doing simple things and tricks for a natural look, and light makeup. Try doing simple illusions, such as applying white pencil on your waterline to give an illusion of bigger eyes (or a nude pencil to look more natural), or tightlining your eyes; applying pencil on your TOP LASH LINE not on the waterline to define eyes and create a "fuller lash" look, or applying an "extra lash" by putting a line on the outer corner of your eye, which will elongate and extend your eye creating a "cat eye" illusion. Also to create an illusion of longer bottom lashes is to apply mascara towards your nose (sweep the brush towards your nose) making the bottom eyelashes sway towards your nose, It also helps give an illusion of a narrower nose. Only putting mascara on the tips of your eyelashes makes gives an illusion of much longer makeup free lashes.
Now for Mascara, i recommend you get a non-waterproof mascara since they are a bit hard to take off and require you to pull your lashes a lot causing them to break. Also if you dont feel like wearing a mascara, but getting same results, use vaseline as a substitute. It gives you pretty similar results causing no damage plus benefits for your lashes; it conditions them, strengthens them and apparently makes them grow. And make sure you always take off your mascara before going to sleep because it causes your eyelashes to break and crunch up.
Also, DONT make your mascara clumpy. It looks unnatractive, unnatural, and damages your lashes. If your lashes do clump up, use an eyelash/eyebrow comb (professional.jblashes.com/.../wooden-eyelash-comb-brush-3-5) can't send pictures trying to help out, to get rid of the clumps. ( White brush is used for eyelashes, black brush is used for brows.)
And I dont recommend you start wearing eyeshadow daily, Try practising it, experimenting with it, but maybe wear it when you're a bit older.
Hope i helped. :*0
