    It would help a lot if you could post a picture. If you don't have Flickr or Photobucket you could link to your myspace.

    Hey Curlycrazie!

    Girl, I sympathize with ya! I'm 23 and still look like I'm 16. Try wearing a bit of a smokey eye makeup. I always think I and others look older with a darker shade on their eyes (tastefully done that is). Don't go out and smudge black all over your lids, cause that will make you look like a kid who got into their mothers makeup drawer! If you go heavy with the eyes, go light on the cheek and lip shades. Get a sheer product to put on your cheekbones and temples that gives your face a glow. Loreal makes one (I forgot what the specific name is) with a hint of pink. and definitely keep your lips clear and glossy.

    I always find that when I don't play up my eyes I look and feel a lot younger. Let me know how it goes.

    I think lauren gave really good advice.

    I think it's also important to stay away from any overtly trendy makeup trends such as glittery shades (ugh). Shimmer is fine, but glitter - no. I would also make sure to apply the same philosophy to lip colors - nothing frosted! Keep it soft and pretty. Check out this look from Bobbi Brown:


    While the exact colors may not be right for you, the basic premise is there.

    Sort of off topic, but how do you wear your hair?

    I have heard red or dark lipstick makes women look older. I think it works too. It makes your lips appear thinner, which I suppose is what "ages" you since people lose collagen as they age.

    That's funny. I find that red/dark lipstick has the opposite effect on me. I guess every face is different. But when I wear red lipstick I look much younger.
