How to Look 10 Years Younger

I'm just going to throw it out there: I'm almost 30.  I know, I know...it's not really a big deal since 40 became the new 30 and 30 became the new 20.  But I still look for tiny wrinkles (which I am starting to get), and search for ways to hide my age.

I found some fab makeup tips that really make a difference for any age. Follow these tricks, and I promise you'll look at least 10 years younger:

1. Lift your brows-- High, full brows look youthful and help define all your features. Use a brow powder or pencil that's a shade lighter than your hair color to fill in sparse areas, then sweep a fine line right above the top of the arch. Try Wet n Wild's Color Icon Liner Brow & Eye Pencil.

2. Camouflage crows feet-- Forget about heavy cover-up--it makes lines more obvious. Instead, brighten the area with concealer under the outer third of your lower lashes and add a creamy highlighter like Benefit's Ooh La Lift below any lines.

3. Reduce "parentheses"-- These are the most annoying lines for me. To hide the lines that run from your nose to your mouth, apply concealer one shade lighter than your skin below the fold only, not over the entire crease. This reduces the appearance of a defined edge. Try Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage.

4. Give your pout some pep-- It's a simple fact that the sides of your mouth tend to droop with age. To lessen the effect, brush highlighter on the corners and concealer just below the outer edges of your lower lip. Try Sonia Kashuk's Synthetic Concealer Brush.

5. Get rid of a double chin-- You can have this problem regardless of age, but it does become more noticeable as you get older.  To fix this, apply a light layer of foundation or matte bronzer two shades darker than your skin under your chin.  Try Rimmel London's Natural Bronzer for the task. Make sure to blend toward your neck.

Hope these tips help! Stay fabulous, ladies!
