Coming of age is never the same for everyone. If you can honestly say that you never went to a phase where you rebelled, whether secretly or expressly, then you are definitely one of the few people who did not experience any rebellious streak during your teenage years.
But, for most of us, adolescence is probably a phase where we tried all sorts of ways to challenge our parents and explore things that parents normally tell us not to do. Yes, it can be a problematic part of life, but in the end, all will work out once you come of age and realize that life is more than what you think you know.
These 75 photos of people before and after their rebellious phase show us just how much a person can change as time goes by.

35+ Hilarious Relationship Things That You Should Send To Your Significant Other Right Now
Couples can make the rest of us roll our eyes.
From their gooey-eyed looks at each other, to being forced to listen to the story of how they met for the fifth time, people in love just have to show it off.
If you’re that couple, you might recognize some of these moments, even if you don’t always find them the cutest parts of being in a relationship.
Here are some of the more wholesome moments you’ve likely shared with our partners:
1. You’re each other’s cheerleaders
Being in a relationship means you have a built-in cheerleader for when you do anything remotely impressive.
2. You suck it up and accept that you’re in love, even when you’re mad
Being a little annoyed doesn’t mean you’re going to withhold your affection completely.
3. You feel a little overprotective of your partner
Sometimes friends don’t understand that you’ve already picked your person and so you overreact a little when they remind you there are plenty of other people out there in case you want to jump back into the dating pool.
4. Love can make you feel all melty
Sometimes you catch yourself looking at your partner just because.
5. Date nights start to look a lot different
Netflix and chill is a perfectly acceptable date night.
6. You love having your partner right there, all the time
Couples don’t always feel this way at the same time, but it’s ok. There are worse things in the world than trying to sleep while someone just wants to remind you how much they love you.
7. You understand that food is a necessary componenent of happiness
Ya gotta eat, even when you’re mad. A hangry partner is not a happy partner.
8. You start to look like the other person
Just take a deep breath before you launch into the matching track suits part of your relationship. Your friends are never going to let you forget it.
9. You tell everyone the story of how you met
You get two times to tell the story while the other person looks on like a lovesick puppy, then pack it in.
10. Expensive doesn’t necessarily equal romantic
It’s the thought that counts and not every date night needs to drain the bank account.
11. You get a little possessive
Love can do some weird things to our brains. As long as you keep it respectful towards your partner, admitting that you can still get jealous can make them realize just how stong your bond is.
12. You get that warm tingly feeling
That’s why they say loves makes you glow.
13. Food is love
When you know you found the one because they not only want you to have the large fries, but know it’s a good way to keep you from eating all of theirs and causing a fight.
14. You don’t always need to be made up to be beautiful to them
That doesn’t mean you should just give up, but it’s nice to get to that moment when you don’t need to hide until you’re hair or makeup is done so they only see you at your best.
15. You don’t worry about cheating
Your significant other can go out for a night with friends or appreciate someone else’s beauty and you have the confidence to know that that’s all it is.
16. You accept one of you is a bed hog
Lots of couples still disagree on who it is, but most of the time this can just be solved with an extra backup blanket and a little nudge. Pets are another story.
17. You give in and buy stuff you don’t need
Sometimes your other half just finds something they really have to have and you should just be glad it’s not a whole box of puppies.
18. You catch each other up on important pieces of pop culture
That feeling of being shocked and then overjoyed that you are going to get to introduce them to a song or movie that you love. Just don’t talk through it or demand that they love it. And if you’re the one being introduced to something new, you work up at least a little bit of enthusiasm.
19. You try to look adorable before asking for things
Just never let it get to the point where you’re shouting requests at each other.
20. You try your best on things that aren’t your strong suit
Again, it’s the thought that counts, and doing something nice for your sweetie, even if it doesn’t turn out perfectly, can turn into a great moment – as long as you both keep a sense of humor.
21. You have a favorite food
And that food plays an integral role in your relationship.
22. One of you tells cheesy jokes and the other one puts up with them
Just start making Valentine’s Day cards out of them and they’ll serve a purpose other than to make you pretend to laugh.
23. You’re ok being away from each other
Everybody needs some space. When you’re significant other is away, you can handle youself, even if you really miss them.
24. You want to kiss them every time you see them
It’s cute as long as they don’t mind that you see their face as a kiss magnet.
25. You put up with it all
When you’re around someone a lot, you’re bound to get annoying (or annoyed). Just take it in stride.
26. You find love cartoons for 6-year-olds funny

It’s always amazing when couple who have been together a long time still get that feeling when they see each other. Now that’s a good life goal.
28. You put up with each other’s singing

Growing old together requires a lot of patience, but if you’re really in love, you know you can make it work.
31. You don’t withold respect
You might be annoyed or mad, but that doesn’t mean you let your loved one walk in the rain.
32. You tear up when you remember how lucky you are to have found your person
Love can overwhelm you in the best ways.
33. You’re proud of how long you’ve been together
Not everyone can make it work. There’s nothing wrong with being proud if you did.
34. You work around them
If you can stay in love afer an airport delay, you’ve definitely got a good thing going.
35. You always remember birthdays
You don’t need a Facebook reminder to remember their special day. Extra points for remembering the week before so you can ask if there’s a special way they want to celebrate.
36. You’ve got wedding goals
Ok, goals and expectations are two separate things, but if your relationship has gotten this far and is healthy, you know the emotion will be there.
37. You are committed to being adorable forever
Because if you got it (a great relationship, that is), then flaunt it.

50+ Tips And Tricks Revealed By Makeup Artists
New year, new you! Maybe one of your resolutions this year is to get more enthusiastic about applying your makeup every morning or to try a new eyeshadow shade, or maybe you are just looking for new ways to get the best bang for your buck.
We did the research for you and found a bunch of makeup hacks revealed by actual makeup artists themselves. Hopefully one of these tips will come in handy!
1.) Use the right foundation for your skin type
Use a water-based foundation if you have oily skin. Use an oil-based foundation if you have dry skin. Everyone is different.
2.) You don’t need a lip liner with your liquid matte lipstick
And if anyone tells you that you do, they are a liar. Almost all liquid lipsticks do just fine on their own.
3.) Let your eyelid primer dry before adding eyeshadow
And after the primer dries, coat them with a light, neutral color all over your lid. This will act as a base and will make it easier to blend colors together. If you want a dark color, slowly build it – first with light colors, and then darker. Don’t just go straight from light to dark.
4.) Save your mascara brush
Fun fact: most of the mascara magic actually comes from the brush. So if you found one that really works for you, save the brush when you’re done, clean it, and try using it with a cheaper bottle! It’s really not necessary to spend big bucks on this.
5.) Make your matte, full-coverage concealer look more natural with primer oil or coconut oil
Use just a drop of the oil of your choice and it will make your heavy concealer more radiant, easy to blend, and natural. It also helps with creasing!
6.) Use hairspray to tame full eyebrows
First, spray hairspray on a clean, disposable mascara wand. Then brush your brows up and into the shape you’re going for. If it makes the hair on our head stay in place, it definitely works for the hair on our face!
7.) Wet your brush before applying highlighter
It will instantly give it a little more glow.
8.) Don’t apply primer with your fingers
It can cause micro-exfoliation, which causes clumps.
9.) Use a matte bronzer to make your eyes look bigger
If you’re doing a full face of makeup but want to keep your eyes bare, put a little bit of matte bronzer in your lid crease and bottom lashline. That way, they will still be bare, but they will also appear bigger.
10.) Never use face soap with sodium laureth sulfate
Makeup artists swear that it dries out your skin.
11.) Stick to matte eyeshadows and powders if you have fine lines on and around your eyelids
Using something shimmery usually accentuates those lines.
12.) Always do your eye makeup before your foundation
That way, you will have an easier time cleaning up any fallout from your eyeshadow.
13.) Always exfoliate and prime your lips with a serum
Especially when using a liquid matte lipstick. Cracked lips will show!
14.) Use scotch tape for the perfect eyeliner wing
Angle it from your eye to your eyebrow for the crispest, cleanest eyeliner wing you’ll ever see. Boom, magic.
15.) Use eyeshadow primer on the lash line
Then sweep eyeshadow on top with a fine liner brush to create a smudge-proof eyeliner. Now if you’re out of eyeliner, you can use your shadows for the same effect!
16.) You can also use a cotton pad
If you use cotton pads to apply your face makeup, use those same pads for your eyeliner! Simply fold it in half and use the straight side to line up with your eye for the perfect sweep. No tape needed.
17.) If you accidentally get mascara around your eyes, let it dry
Wait 5 minutes or so and then swipe it away with a Q-tip. At that point, it should flake off and not smudge.
18.) Never share makeup brushes
It’s super unsanitary.
19.) Tarte’s Timeless Smoothing Primeris an absolute must
It’s soft and it doesn’t clog pores. What more could you want?
20.) Imagine a line from the outer corner of your eye to the tip of your brow. This is where your eyeshadow should stop.
A lot of times, people make the mistake of not bringing out their eyeshadow far enough. This can actually make the eyebrow look smaller.
21.) If you’re just starting out and want to learn how to contour, put the contour color on a brush or sponge first
It will be harder to blend if you draw it on directly like lines.
22.) Don’t sleep in your makeup
“Skin needs time to breathe and when you’re sleeping, your body is repairing the most. Sleeping in makeup is not only messy, but it causes breakouts, premature aging, and stained bedding. Take care of your skin, loves!”
23.) Don’t recreate the celebrities
“Those looks are made for them, their skin type, skin tone, and face shape. People always come into my shop and request to look like Kim Kardashian and I have to explain to them that it might not work on them and sometimes they even get upset when it doesn’t turn out. Yes, I can do it, but it won’t look good on you. Instead ask for something dramatic like Kim Kardashian or whatever you want but do not ask to look like them!”
24.) Invest in good skin care products
“Your makeup, no matter how much you paid for it, will not look its best when it’s added on top of dry, scaly, splotchy, oily and just plain unhappy skin. Want to get makeup optional skin? INVEST in skin care.”
25.) Don’t start from the top lash line if you’re doing winged eyeliner, use the bottom lash line for a smoother, straighter line
And look at the wing you drew first while drawing your second one.
26.) Never store your makeup in a bathroom cabinet
The humidity can cause it to alter and go bad before its time, plus toilet germs.
27.) Blend your foundation out onto your neck
“When wearing foundation please blend it out. Put product on your jawline, and blend it out into your neck. Also blend the foundation along the edges of your face out. It’ll help create a natural look and make it less obvious you’re wearing foundation, plus it will visually improve your color match.”
28.) Don’t use stark white concealer under your eyes
“Use an under-eye concealer one shade lighter than your face concealer, not two or three shades. It will give you a naturally bright effect instead of a contrasting white effect, which looks super unnatural.”
29.) Apply setting powder with a damp beauty blender or brush
This does wonders for people with dry or textured skin and gives a smooth, airbrushed finish.
30.) The same foundation that works for you in the summer might not work for you in the winter
For example, I use a more moisturizing foundation in the winter (Too Faced Born This Way) and prefer a more matte coverage in the summer (Hourglass Stick Foundation).
31.) For eyeshadow, tap the excess eyeshadow off the brush
Also hold the brush farther from the handle for more control.
32.) Blend your foundation into your hairline and make sure to contour that too
Everyone knows to drag their makeup down their neck a little bit, but too often I see people with a line between their makeup and hair. Not a good look!
33.) Stop blowing on your makeup brushes
“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people do this and it makes me cringe. Brushes already harbor bacteria if not cleaned and taken care of properly; you blowing on your brushes and getting saliva particles all over it isn’t helping considering you’re applying it directly to your face therefore causing breakouts, clogged pores, etc. If you’ve picked up too much product, just tap it off or give your brush a little shake.”
34.) Use a foundation one shade darker on the outer edge of your face to add depth
35.) If your skin is very oily, apply a light layer of powder after you apply your primer and before you apply your foundation
It’ll give you a smoother look. Also, baby powder works great for baking your face. I use it for everything!
36.) Glowing cheeks that look natural
“”Add your favorite blush to the cheeks before you apply foundation for a glow that looks like it’s coming from beneath the skin. A bright, warm pink at the apple is perfect for any complexion.”
37.) Multi-colors on the cheeks is important
“Apply two shades of blush for the perfect flush of youth. Pink, or anything in the red family should be placed on the apple of the cheek; it will give the effect of blood coming to the surface. Peach, coral, or anything in the orange family should be applied to the highest point of the cheekbone; that gives the effect of heat rising. Finish by bringing a matte bronzer to the skin where sun hits the face (forehead, cheekbone, bridge of nose, and chin).”
38.) Lighten your coverage
“Mixing foundation with moisturizer is an easy way to lighten your coverage options if you already have a fuller coverage foundation.”
39.) Make sure those lashes get coated
“Use the handle of a brush to lift the eyelid at the base of the lashes to roll your lashes up and back; this allows you to wiggle the mascara wand against the base of the lashes and pull through any clumps in a clean and precise manner.”
40.) Don’t be afraid of red
“If you want to find the perfect red for your complexion, try applying one lip color that has the same undertone as your complexion all over the lip: Cool uses cool, warm uses warm. Apply a red with the opposite tone just to the center for a lip that looks full and fantastic.”
41.) Reach for the school supplies
“No. 2 pencils are the perfect graphite shade to sketch in natural eyebrow hairs. Sharpen one to a point and draw in lightly for a finished brow.”
42.) Thicken up watery foundation
“To make foundation thicker, mix in a touch of loose powder. (Be careful not to add too much or it will cake.)”
43.) Chill out and reduce puff
“To reduce puffiness, pop eye lotion in the icebox and apply to lids before eye makeup.”
44.) Find the right lip shade
“Test lipstick on the inside of your fingertip, rather than on the back of your hand. The pad of your finger closely resembles your own lip color, so see which one looks best there, then move to the lips.”
45.) The power of gold
“Gold powder pigment is a great way to lengthen lashes or brows. Use a clean spoolie brush, toothbrush, or mascara wand, and brush a bronze or yellow gold pigment through a mascared lash or brow for a beautiful effect that adds dimension without looking hard.”
46.) Who knew?
“Halloween is the perfect time to stock up on some unexpected essentials. Fake blood is the ideal blush shade. Add it to the apple of the cheek for any skin tone—it looks like a natural flush of color coming though the skin.”
47.) You better stock up on your next visit!
“Starbucks napkins and disposable toilet-seat covers work just as well as blotting papers.”
48.) If it works, it works!
“As a little girl, I would watch my mother apply egg whites to her face (especially around her eyes) about an hour or two before going out to a special event. She would take one egg, separate it, whisk it until it was frothy, and apply the egg white all over her face and leave it on for 20 minutes. After, she would wash it off with lukewarm water and immediately apply her makeup. The egg white tightens the skin and wrinkles to give you a temporary facelift.”
49.) Who doesn’t want to look younger?
“My favorite ‘look younger’ makeup tip is to first use a luminizer in the inner corner, then swoop it with a fan brush underneath the eye. This brightens the face.”
50.) Pucker that pout
“Use a flesh-toned eyeliner to outline the lips along the Cupid’s bow. This reduces the chance of feathering and makes lips appear fuller.”
51.) Better safe than sorry
“If you can’t find a perfect shade, buy one that’s slightly darker than your skin and one that’s slightly lighter, then fine-tune the color yourself.”
52.) Strange but effective
“Pull your bottom lip down and look at the inside color. Pick a lipstick shade that’s either lighter or a bit deeper but along the same tone as the inside of your lip. Oh, and don’t do this in public.”
53.) Buff, buff, buff!
“Buff, buff, buff foundation into the skin — quickly, like a whirlwind — with a brush. It ensures the coverage won’t look heavy-handed.”
54.) Instant lip lift
“Apply concealer to the outer corners of your lips to give your lips a lift.”
55.) Fuller brows while you sleep
“Apply a nourishing balm to your eyebrows before going to bed. This will guarantee extra strength and growth—thicker eyebrows in two weeks.”

“What A Dreamboat!” Makeover Transforms Shy Teen After Dramatic Weight Loss
Christopher Hopkins, aka “The Makeover Guy” is known for transforming men and women over 40 into the best selves. But in 2019, he took on the task of a teenager.
Little did he know that Phoenix’s makeover would be one of his most powerful.
Phoenix found himself in Hopkin’s Minneapolis “appearance studio” after a big weight loss. The previous school year, he weighed in and 250 pounds.
His transformation wasn’t easy.
He managed to lose 100 pounds by counting his macronutrients (think of it as going a step farther than calorie-counting) and working out every day with a personal trainer
That’s a big commitment for a teenager!
But Phoenix is dedicated and fearless. Hence his desire to put his head in the hands of Hopkins for a whole new style.
He’s already a handsome young man (with hair most people covet), but he decided it was time for a change. And if you’ve seen The Makeover Guy’s popular videos, you know his studio is the place to go.
The big chop
It seems pretty obvious that Phoenix is going to end up with a major haircut. After all, why waste your time going to a makeover guru if you’re not going to let him go crazy with the scissors?
And that’s precisely what Hopkins does. Gone is the shoulder-length wavy hair of the “before” Pheoenix. But is he happy?
There’s a big smile on the teen’s face as he runs his hands through his glossy mane. He’s still got hair to die for!
It’s long on top and makes the perfect wave in front. The only problem is that it’s a little too neat for the teen.
We cringed a little when he messed with perfection, but it’s his hair, not ours after all! And the modelesque look just wasn’t entirely jibing with him.
After getting a tousel from Hopkins, things end up in largely the same place, just not so catalog-model-ready. And it still looks great!
Personal style is just that – personal – so Phoenix has to be able to pull off whatever hairstyle he walks out the door with. And we were really impressed with him for speaking up.
A good day
“I had fun today,” Phoenix says after getting a little ribbing from Hopkins.
He admits that he’s normally shy in front of people and we believe it since when he first walked in he seemed less outgoing. But after agreeing to trust his stylist and seeing the results of the makeover, he lives up to his name. Phoenix is reborn!
After one more tweak by Hopkins, the transformation is complete.
It’s a cute moment when the teen keeps messing with his hair only to have Hopkins walk by and “fix” it one more time.
Commenters were over the moon about Phoenix’s makeover.
“Omg that jawline! He’s stunning and what an adorable personality,” said one fan.
Of course, there were lots of comments about his Bart Simpson shirt, but frankly, we think it adds that perfect reminder that he’s still a “kid.”
And like most commenters, we wish we could see him waltz back into high school with his new look!
