Matte Matters

Matte does matter, and it might be a good idea to stay away from it. When it comes to foundations, it's better to stick to a loose powder, and use a makeup brush to apply it. Matte powders provide a flat, dry finish on your face, and that can make anyone look older because it actually emphasizes imperfections, whether it's a blemish, a line, or a wrinkle.


Trim It up

Eyebrows can be the key to a youthful look. For instance, if your brows aren't shaped properly for your face, it can make you look sad, not to mention old. Make sure they stay trimmed but that their shape flatters and accentuates the overall shape of your face. Keep those tops trimmed up as well, though, so they don't get too wild.


Always Moisturize

You must moisturize. The end. Start now. Moisturizer is so important, it doesn't matter how old you are; you're never too young or too old to start. It will make your skin smooth, soft, supple, and if you start early, then you'll see positive effects as you start to get older.


Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen

Sorry. I still love that bit by Baz Luhrmann. And he was right, you know: everybody should wear sun screen, especially women. In fact, you can use a moisturizer with a sunscreen base, or just go with the sun block. After all, it moisturizes as well. If you're outside, though, at all, you need to protect your face.


Sure Shadows

There are a number of eyeshadow tricks and tips that provide a really youthful look. For instance, it's better to use light shadows, because it will make your eyes look larger. However, you should stay away from shiny metallic shades because they emphasize imperfections.


Go Nuts with Nuts

The foods you eat naturally make a difference as well. For instance, eating foods that have the right kinds of fat and can provide lots of energy is highly recommended. That includes a lot of nuts – almonds, walnuts, and of course peanuts!


Seven's the Magic Number

As you get older, especially, sleep is important. Whenever it's possible, you need to try to get at least a full seven hours. When you don't get enough sleep, it can throw your metabolism out of whack and it can interrupt the way your body produces essential hormones. Yikes!


Don't Be a Squint

If you're out in the sun, make sure you accessorize that sunscreen with shades. Sunglasses are extremely helpful because if you spend a lot of time squinting, you can aid in the creation of crow's feet and wrinkles in your forehead. Now, I'm not talking about character lines – I personally love seeing lines when a woman smiles or when she's thinking hard; those are the marks of her life. However, character lines are one thing, but there's no reason to exacerbate the situation when frankly you should be protecting your eyes from the sun anyway.


Flaunt It if You Got It

You know the best way to look youthful? Feel it. Women are beautiful no matter how young or old they are. If you've got it, flaunt it, and don't be ashamed. Don't feel like, because you've reached a certain age, you have to cut your hair a certain way or wear certain kinds of clothes. If you're flattering your body, if you look good, if your clothes are classic and classy and beautiful, go for it.


Be Happy

You know another great way to look youthful? Be happy. Age really is just a number these days, and even if it's not, who cares? Are you gorgeous? Are you happy with yourself, your life, what you've accomplished? Then own it, be happy with it, and stuff the rest!

It's such a fine line, worrying about age and just passing it off. Some days you feel great and others you start to worry about it. There are tons of ways to keep from doing that, though, and to make sure you keep feeling happy with yourself. What do you do when you start feeling a little blah?
