Do the sexy clothes you wore in the past now seem just plain wrong? Will smoky eye makeup that looks great on 19-year-olds make you appear just plain crazy?
Part of the problem is that aging often requires change, but most women do not want to move to end up looking frumpy.
Also when you are young,stylish and trend-savvy, you may feel like wearing some outfits that your mom wears,this will drain away all of your fashionista credibility.Just use your trained eye, go for classics, and steer clear of anything you know will read as older than your age.
Using the wrong makeup
The makeup colors and brands you have been wearing for years probably do not reflect what is best for your skin anymore.
And resist the urge to put on heavy-duty powders and concealers to cover up wrinkles and under-eye circles as caked-on or dark makeup can make you seem even older. For a more natural look,use a magnifying mirror and having a “lighter touch” when applying. Keep your cosmetic bag current–replace foundations, powders, and concealers every 6 months to a year, and steer clear of dated makeup styles too.
DRESS YOUR AGE-Dressing for your size does not just mean mixing clothes that are too tight from your wardrobe. It also means you should not wear clothes that are too baggy. Both will make you look frumpy or outdated no matter your age.Janice Dickinson does not look 57, but she is and she looks great,it is tacky when 50-somethings try sporting an outfit you will normally find on 20-somethings and vice versa,stick to age appropriate attire.
Know Your Colours: Know which colours will flatter you the most by figuring out if the undertones in your skin are either warm or cold.Women with cool undertones look best in white, black, gray, silver, and shades of blue. Women with warm undertones will be dazzling in shades of yellow, gold, brown, green and red.
