Back-to-school makeup appropriate for tweens

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Tweens are back to school this week, and besides rocking trendy clothes this year, it's all about the makeup, some say.

Some are turning to online tutorials where tweens teach other tweens the art of the perfect application.

"I like wearing lipstick and stuff, I like it neony and sparkly," said Jordyn Cohen, a student she is among many who are flocking to salons for a more hands on approach.

"It makes me feel pretty and it makes me feel special sometimes when I'm wearing makeup," Jordyn said.

Cozy Friedman of Cozy's Cuts for Kids on the Upper East Side offers a tween makeup service. She says tweens covet all kinds of looks from super glam to looks perfect for the first day of school.

"Then there's what would be more appropriate for day to day: A light lip gloss, maybe a little color for the cheeks," Friedman said.

Most elementary and middle schools in the tristate area don't have policies regarding their young students wearing makeup, but Jordyn prefers to go au natural during the day and go glam after the school bell.

"You should only put it on if you have to go somewhere important or something, you shouldn't be wearing it regularly to school or something," Jordyn said.

That is good example for all young girls.

    You've probably seen Airbnb commercials extolling the benefits of homeowners renting out their houses or apartments to out-of-town guests for a fee. Sharing is caring feel-good commercials.But housing activists say Airbnb is reducing available housing in New York City's increasingly expensive and shrinking housing market. They argue Airbnb is pushing thousands of apartments toward use as illegal hotels instead of affordable housing.

    A life-sized looking and sounding robot named the RoboThespian is an interactive, alert machine powered by algorithms and codes -- a form of artificial intelligence. It's the sort of thing that would have sounded like science fiction a generation ago. These days, robots like this are used mostly in showrooms and for entertainment. But researcher Cadell Last of the Global Brain Institute says that these bots will have a much bigger role and will make up a major part of the workforce.
