Looking younger later in life has become a goal for most women, not only to stand tall and proud next to their guy who seems to have gotten better looking over the years, but also to prove to the other ladies in the room that they've certainly still got it. Though exercising and eating a healthy diet are key parts of faking your age, using certain beauty products can also keep your complexion looking fabulous for years to come.
Keep them locked in on your peepers
Your eyes are certainly an important part of your overall look, so using the right makeup to enhance your peepers is a must, the experts at Marie Claire magazine report. A great option to help your eyes seem larger and more attractive is to rock shimmery eyeshadow in neutral shades like gold or copper along with black eyeliner to help highlight the shape and even false lashes if you've got the time.
Fashion designer Lauren Conrad adds on her blog, The Beauty Department, that adding some highlighter directly under your brow lines works in a flash to enhance the look of your lids. Apply a light pink matte pencil starting at the inner corners and continuing the line to the outer corners for the best effect. Blend the product in so the line is gone, but you can still see a hint of the pink.
Since the focus will be on your peepers, it's also important to keep eye wrinkles out of sight. Using certain products like Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Renewal is sure to stave off wrinkles thanks to its active marine algae ingredients.
Stick to blow-drying
Straight, sleek hair continues to be in fashion, but if you weren't blessed with naturally straight locks, you might be trying everything in the book to get the desired style. More ladies than ever have been heading to the salon to get their hair chemically straightened, but the experts at Marie Claire warn against this idea.
Instead, ladies looking to keep their hair looking as young as they feel should opt to stick to blow-drying every other day to achieve the slick and straight style. On the same note, using heat-protection hair products like Steiner Dire Straights Flat Iron Straightening Lotion 150ml prior to blow-drying and straightening will help ensure your hair doesn't suffer the consequences of heat.
Other tips to try include keeping the shape of your eyebrows in check and opting to use powder foundation that can make you look a bit cakey.
