Okay, many of you will think I'm wonkers, but I need help looking OLDER. Not older than my age, but I need to just LOOK my age.
I'm 26, but get ID'd everytime I buy lottery tickets! I'm a manager at a health food store and a certified Phytotherapist and Basic Physiologist, but every day, people say to me, "Oh, what do you want to do when you finish high school?" Aaarrghhh! "17" seems to be the magic age that people label me. Followed by the line, "Oh, you look so young, you'll appreciate it when you're older."
Perhaps this wouldn't bother me so much, but my common-law boyfriend of 6 years, is twenty years older than me. Yes, he's 46. So when we are out together, we always get mistaken for father and daughter! How weird is that?! And hurtful. I do wear makeup, experiment with it (nothing heavy, nothing light, just right...), experiment with hair colours, styles... nothing punk of course! I just have the chubbiest, roundest little cheeks...
Any advice on how to look older, without sacrificing moisturizer? Thanks.
