Let’s have a reality check. Do you look old? How can you tell?
Here are five common mistakes of women over 40 that make that make them look older than they are. Could you be guilty of these mistakes?
1. Your shirt is too baggy
Many women walk around in loose oversized clothing because they say it is hard to find things that fit. This is partially true, but no excuse to looking frumpy. In truth, the real reason most women wear baggy clothing is that they fear fitted clothing will expose all their bulges. Not true! Fitted clothing made from quality fabrics skim your curves and therefore fit and look 100% better.
2. Your blush and eyeliner are too heavy
Those cheekbones are not going to appear, no matter how many tons of blush you apply. Less is more with makeup as we age. As for eyeliner, be careful to make sure it looks well blended and is not a hard line. Don’t wear black. It will look too harsh at least during the day. Try brown for a softer look. Once you apply your eyeliner, go over it with some powder on a thin angled brush and blend in the line.
3. Your sunglasses look outdated
Are you wearing out of style or scratched sunglasses? You can spend a ton or a little, but no matter the price, oversize sunglasses with wider sides will make you look current and Age-mazing! Throw out all your old ones and get an update! Find a new pair that makes you smile, and you will feel and look younger instantly!
4. You are dressing too sexy
That might sound like a shocker to some…but dressing too young, CAN actually make you look older! There’s a fine line once you hit 40, between sexy and silly but FAB after 40 will keep you on track!
5. Your hair is dry and brittle
As we age, our hair starts losing its luster. To help rejuvenate it, make sure you get a good cut on a regular basis, condition and don’t use too many drying products on it, like mousse or hairspray. Finally, buy a SHINE spray to apply styling. Shiny says healthy and vibrant!
