Yourself Appear Younger


Beauty Tips...For Younger

1. Choose a young scent. If you like to wear perfume you could use your scent to make yourself appear younger. Studies have shown that women who wear a scent that involves pink grapefruit notes were perceived as being as much as six years younger than they actually were.

2. Use makeup to brighten skin. If your skin is looking dull try brightening it up with some makeup. A good bronzer or blush can give it a much needed burst of color and make you look younger and healthier.

3. Hide dark circles and age spots. Dark circles and age spots can make you appear much more tired and old than you really are. Cover them up with a good concealer or camouflage makeup to give you an instantly younger face.

4. Don’t use foundation to cover wrinkles. While it may seem to even out skin tone, foundation will sink into the wrinkles, making them appear much deeper than they really are.

5. Don’t overdo it. Wearing too much makeup can actually make you look older, not younger. Try using lighter formulas or those with skin brightening elements to give your skin a boost without having to encase it a layer of makeup.

6. Shape your eyebrows. Sometimes a simple tweeze of the eyebrows can do wonders for your face, lifting and highlighting your best features. Learn to do it properly yourself or have them professionally waxed for an instant facelift.

7. Choose flattering shades. Bright white metallic eye shadow or dark rogue may have worked for you at one point in your life but trends change. Choose shades that flatter your hair, eye and skin tones and you’ll look younger and more attractive.

8. Use less soap and styling products. Using an excess of products in the shower or when styling can dry out the skin or make hair oily and unmanageable. Use a light hand when doling out either.

9. Curl eyelashes. You can help open up your eyes, make your face look brighter and younger by curling your eyelashes. Try doing it just after you shower to get the best results.

10. Don’t use powder. Facial powders may eliminate some of the oil on your skin but they can also sink into wrinkles making you look older than you are. Try cream based powders instead for a more flawless complexion.
