1. Shirt is too baggy
Many women wear loose oversized clothing because they say it is hard to find things that fit. T is partially true, but no excuse for looking frumpy. In truth, most women wear baggy clothing because they fear fitted apparel will expose all their bulges. No true! Fi ted clothing made from quality fabrics skim your curves and therefore fits and looks 100% better.
2. Blush and eyeliner are too heavy
Those cheekbones will not 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. Do ‘t wear black? It will look too harsh, at least during the day—Tr brown for a softer look. On e you apply your eyeliner, go over it with some powder on a thin angled brush and blend in the line.
3. Sunglasses look outdated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! The ow out all your old ones and get an update! Fi d a new pair that makes you smile, and you will feel and look younger instantly!
