So what can a woman do to look her age and even younger?
- Skip the powder. Powder tends to settle into your fine lines and wrinkles, making them more noticeable. Older skin doesn't produce as much oil as younger skin. Plus a matte face looks older than a dewy fresh face.
- Mascara on the upper lashes only. As we get older, dark under eye circles become more noticeable as well as those dreaded crows feet. Also mascara on the lower lashes can smudge and flake off more easily. If you are trying to draw attention away from those areas, then just put mascara on the upper lashes only.
- Purchase under-eye concealer which doesn't settle into wrinkles and skip the powder which can also settle into fine lines.
- No shiny eye shadow. It will amplify every wrinkle on your lids making you look older. Plus it can flake off more easily settling into the fine lines under your eyes making them more noticeable.
- Wear less make up. The term less is more truly applies here. “Less make up is more youthful,” says make up artist and Cover Girl Pro Paul Venoit. “But it doesn't mean no make up. Foundation in particular helps gives the complexion a fresher finish.” Gravitate towards eye shadow in natural colours like browns, and plums. Swear off dark matte lipstick and instead opt for creamy formulas with a satiny finish. And use gloss, since shine makes lips look fuller.

Writing a blog takes a a lot of work. Sometimes I find that I’m uninspired when it comes time to post an entry. Then I just look to my muses and I find the inspiration that I’m searching for. Here in no particular order are the people, places, and things that inspire me the most these days:

This is a tricky faux paw to master. It takes some time and energy, being truly honest with yourself and possibly enlisting some professional help. What I'm speaking about is wearing the correct colours for your skin tone, hair colour, and eye colour. If you don't know your correct colours you run the risk of wearing a colour that washes you out, or makes you look older, tired or ill. And who wants that? There are different ways of accomplishing this, but the most popular is finding out your colours by season based on the book Color Me Beautiful by Carole Jackson. If you want to try and figure out what colours look the best on you head here to take a test to find out what season you are and therefore which colours will look their best on you. Colours are usually divided into two categories - warm which has spring and autumn, and cool which has summer and winter. Autumn has the same colours as spring but they are darker and more intense and winter has the same colours as summer but are darker and more intense plus winter includes black and white. It's also super easy to rule out whether or not you're a winter. All you need to do is hold up something black, then hold up something pure white. If you look awful with both, then you aren't a winter because only a person with winter colouring can wear a true black or white. It's okay if colours from both warm seasons autumn and spring look good on you, or colours from both cool seasons winter and summer look good on you. However colours from warm seasons will generally not look good on someone with cool colouring and vice versa. Joelle and I both know our colours. Joelle is a spring who can wear some autumn colours and I am a winter. Master this and you won't receive this rating:
