You just discovered your first grey hair and now you’re panicking. As the last straw that breaks the camel’s back, you’ve also noticed a wrinkle you didn’t have yesterday… You end up depressed all day long, thinking about your 20s when you looked great no matter what you you were wearing. Don’t worry, and remember what your girlfriends said to you the other day, “age is just a number!” If you’re not convinced, discover our 10 tips to look instantly younger!
#1 Stand up straight!
Pay attention to your posture, this is THE number one key to look younger and more classy. Try it at home in front of the mirror: tuck your stomach in, straighten your spine and your head and keep your shoulders back. You’ll see the difference straight away – see what I did there!
#2 Put on those heels
What a crime to abandon your lovely heels, they’re only waiting for you to wear them again, so do yourself a favor and put them on! Flat and comfortable shoes are cute but do they refine your silhouette as much as heels do? The answer is no. Heels are fab!
#3 Be careful with makeup
If you’re still putting on three tons of foundation and terracotta every morning…then you’re a little behind on the current trends. The orange complexion is over, so be like Diane Kruger and adopt a simpler makeup regime to bring out your natural beauty. And we highly recommend to stay well away from matching your bright lipstick to your bright eyeshadow.
#4 Be colourful
Black, grey and beige are nice colours and they go with everything. But it’s kind of boring and it makes you blend in with the crowd too much. Instead, try to stand out from it by wearing a vibrant blue or red blouse, or accessorize your outfits with a colourful necklace. These little touches of colour will make you shine!
#5 Be more colourful… With your hair!
Grey hairs beginning to appear on your head? It’s not necessarily a bad thing and it can give you a very chic look but if you don’t like it, don’t panic, a quick coloration will fix it. Choose a natural tone and give your hair a youthful boost!
#6 Don’t forget your hands!
Hands can reflect the passing of the years. If you don’t take care of them, wrinkles and droughts will appear quickly, so protect your hands from the sun and moisturize them. Also, try to take manicure breaks from time to time!
#7 Don’t forget your eyebrows!
If you weren’t aware of it by now, shame on you! Take care of your eyebrows if you want to truly be “on point”. Reflecting your mood, they also emphasize your look and give it depth. Thanks to them, everyone will focus on your eyes and the small imperfections of your face will go unnoticed. Get an eyebrow pencil adapted to your natural colour and see the magic happen!
#8 Free your hair
Do you remember that strict teacher who always had her hair tied up really tight? Don’t be like her, detach your hair and let it float freely, this will immediately give you a more gorgeous look.
#9 Be proud of your glasses!
No, you’re not “blind” and your face isn’t ruined by those glasses, quite the contrary! Glasses are far from being a sign of old age and you should know that they can also be rather sexy. Take the time to choose a frame that best suits your face and try to match the colour of your hair.
#10 Forget your age
Everyone is the age of their heart. Forget all of these ridiculous and useless remarks like “I feel old…” Overtime you’ll convince yourself that’s true and that would be stupid wouldn’t it? Prefer “How old am I? Oh, I don’t care!”
