No Make-up Makeovers

Hello everyone, I would really like a new look. I am 19 years old and people often think I am a High School student, about 16 or 17 years old. When my 14 year old sister and I go places, people often think I am her friend from school rather than her older sister. I am a young woman, I'll be getting married next year, and I'm tired of people thinking of me as a young girl. So, I need a new look, but I will not wear make-up. Does anyone know any ways to try a new look without make-up. Wearing different clothes won't do much, since I have to wear a uniform all day at work. I can't think of any other ideas....

I think you're pretty fortunate. Looking youthful is really a blessing. Find a fun hairstyle that looks great on you and don't worry about whether it makes you look older or not. Enjoy this.

I would recommend a bit of makeup. Something as simple as some bronzing beads and a bit of mascara makes a huge difference.

Good luck to you.

Other than a hairstyle or doing something to your facial features there isn't much that you can do.

I know it may annoy you, but be grateful for when you are older.

I am 31 this year and I look anywhere from 17-25.

Depends on the person.

Doesn't matter with you speak or your manners.

Why does it bother you that much?

Amanda,

A great way to add on a couple of years if to fix up your eyebrows. I am not sure if you're an avid tweezer, and even if you are, there is always room for improvement. Try a new shape to accentuate your eyes.

Also, if you're still going the no-makeup route, I would give an eyelash curler a try.

One last thing - why not try a hint of makeup? I find the best way to enhance your face is blush. It is as simple as that!

Hope this helps.

Believe me I know how you feel. I had someone ask me why I was not in school a few months ago and I am almost 22.

One thing you can try to make you look older could be a new hair cut. You could pick a more grown up cut out of a book or even ask your stylist what she/he thinks would make you look older.

Hope this helps some. Let me know what you deside to do and how it goes.
