The sun is shining, the birds are singing and there’s a feeling of positivity and optimism in the air. Everywhere you look there are attractive, carefree young people parading their perfectly svelte bodies in tight fitting clothes, sipping iced lattes between bursts of laughter…. Don’t they just make you sick? Don’t worry. You’re not a horrible person. To a certain extent it’s natural to have some reservations about younger generations, especially living in a society where our attitude to aging is a little bit Logan’s Run. As we get older and collect duties, responsibilities, worries stresses and, for some of us, kids who represent all of the above these cool, carefree youngsters can become a mocking reminder of everything that we had and lost.
But maybe we didn’t lose that spirit of youthful exuberance. Maybe we just misplaced it. Perhaps a few well chosen beauty and fashion tips can help you to bring it back again. Here are 4 easy ways to take 5 years off your look…
Give yourself an instant face lift with concealer and contouring
Are you starting to notice the odd fine line or wrinkle at the corners of your eyes and mouth? Not to worry, it happens to the best of us. We’ve already looked at some ways in which you can rejuvenate tired eyes. The good news, however, is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on skincare products to give yourself an instant face lift… You just have to add a dab of concealer in all the right places and embrace the fine art of contouring.
Simply apply a dab of concealer to the inner and outer corners of your eyes, the outer sides of your nostrils, and either side of your lips. And Shazam! Instant youth!
You can also use contouring to give your eyes a wider and more youthful look. Use a lighter colored shadow nearest to the lash line while using a deeper shade above the crease where the lid is drooping. This makes the bottom of the lid more visible, while helping the puffy top part to recede.
Dress off the beaten track
How often do you walk onto the high street and notice half a dozen other people wearing the same jeans, jacket or top as you? As we get older we tend to dress for comfort and convenience rather than to wow. You can restore a sense of youth to your look by shopping at more boutique stores like https://www.fillyflair.com/. Wearing less widely available clothes can help you to craft a more unique look.
Invest in a really good bra
Gravity makes fools of us all! If your bust lacks the youthful lift you enjoyed in your early 20s you’d be astonished by the difference the right bra can make. Not only will a properly fitted bra make you feel happier and more comfortable every day, it will elevate your breasts while also slimming your waistline for a more youthful silhouette.
Make bold choices
Finally, don’t be afraid to make bold choices in your hair, makeup and wardrobe. Whoever said messy hair, ripped jeans and casual jackets alongside fancy dresses are the sole preserve of teens and early 20 somethings? Own your look and you’d be surprised at how quickly the years fall away.
