Here are a few beauty tricks that will make you look younger with just a sweep of a blush brush or mascara wand. 1. Keep your hair between your chin and your shoulders. Side-swept bangs and hair no longer than your shoulders will take off years. Find out why in this on the most flattering haircuts on women. 2. Lipstick shade can age you Another trick to looking younger is to steer clear of brown lipstick shades. Avoid matte lipstick as they tend to settle into your lip lines. Instead, try creamier lipsticks or glosses. (Glosses are especially youthful and make your lips appear bee-stung). 3. Stick to creamy blushes and shadows Older skin usually means dry skin so creamy blushes and shadows are optimal. Also, powder blushes and shadows tend to settle into your fine lines and wrinkles, whereas creamier products 'plump' up your skin. 4. Define those eyes Curled lashes immediately make eyes 'pop.' One tip I love I learned from the editors of Allure: You can curl your lashes AFTER mascara application, just make sure the mascara has dried. I find lining my eyes helps make my somewhat tiny eyes look 10 times larger. I never leave the house now without a bit of eyeliner on both upper and lower lashes (smudging the line makes it look more natural) and mascara. 5. Don't overpluck Once you hit your 30s, you'll want to be careful not to overpluck your eyebrows since brows are less apt to grow back if you excessively pluck. Find out what you can do to remedy 6. Get your teeth lightened Over time, teeth may yellow from coffee, tea or red wine stains. You can whiten teeth quickly with such as Crest Whitestrips. 7. Stand up straight. Think about all the sexy women you know. They stand up straigtht and confidently. Not only will this make you look ten pounds thinner in seconds, it will make you look five years younger as well. 8. Get a good night's sleep Few things age you overnight more than a poor night's sleep. Your eyes are puffy, your skin sallow and dull and your face sags.
