Did you know that something as simple as updating your eye glasses or changing your lip color can take years off your appearance? Many women get stuck in the same old routine and don't realize that what may have worked for them 10 years ago, only makes one look dated and older today. I've compiled a list of some of the best advice to rejuvenate You and make You look and feel younger!
1. Bland Colors Wash You Out - Color Your World
Color is your friend! As we get older drab colors (grey, beige, and even black) draw color from our face and can make us look older. The right pop of color will light you up and bring a glow to your skin tone.
When you are feeling sassy, try a beautiful printed top, like Colleen Lopez "Paisley Garden" Smocked Blouse which has a menagerie of colors, giving you the ability to mix and match it with dozens of different outfits! If you thought that black was the only way to go on a night out, think again! Colleen Lopez Lace "Anniversary" Dress is just as elegant as a black dress, but unlike black the rich navy color works wonders for your eyes and skin tone!
2. Boring glasses - Perk Up Those Peepers!
Have you been wearing the same eyeglass style for years? If the answer is yes, it's time to change things up and have some fun with glasses! It's a great way to update and moderize your look.

3. Turtleneck Magnify A Double Chin
As we age, our jaw line and neck area become "looser" and turtleneck sweaters only bring attention to this problem. Instead wear a cowl neckline or loosely draped scarf that will flatter your neck area and add a touch of chic to your look.
Casual and cool, Colleen Lopez "Windy Chic" Poncho Blouse is just sheer enough to show off your silhouette, making you look slimmer than you are! Get ready for the quickest slimming trick of all time - wear a scarf! When you wrap a scarf around your neck, you hide that width of your neck which immediately tricks the eye into looking more slim than you are, plus the length of the scarf divides the width of your body, creating the same effect.

4. Stiff or One Tone Hair - Do Away With Helmet Head
Whether your hair is short or shoulder-length, adding a few highlights and fringed layers around the face will take years off your appearance.

5. Missing Eyebrows - Thinning brows make you look older
A good eyebrow pencil is a must in every woman's beauty arsenal - Fill in those fading brows!
Think of the difference between a poster on the wall versus a beautifully framed picture. Eyebrows are the framework for your whole face and a face with faded or missing eyebrows looks like something is missing. YBF Eyebrow Pencil Duo has a long lasting twist pencil on one side and a spooly brush on the other.
6. Deeply tanned skin will make you look older
The fastest way to look older is to bake your skin in the sun. For a youthful sun kissed look use a self tanner that gives you a "natural" warm glow!
Old, cracked leather is never a good look, especially when we are talking about your skin!

8. Nude panty-hose - Just say No.
Yes, ladies it's true - Nude hose are very aging. If you want a nude leg, instead of nude hose wear bare legs with self tanner or a leg bronzing lotion. In the Fall and winter, wear dark stockings or opaque rights for a sleek, modern look.

10. Too much makeup - As we age, less is more
If you're wearing your make up the same way you did 10 years ago - it's time for an update! Starting with the right foundation - Use a moisturizing foundation and dab it only where needed to even out skin tone. To add color to your face and cheeks, use a small amount of tinted moisturizer or bronzer to your temples, cheek bones and jaw line. For blush, try a peachy pink color in a small amount right on the apple of your cheeks (use a very light touch when applying). Use eyeliner in soft shades such as brown or midnight, and blend well. For lips, avoid super dark reds that will accentuate thinning lips and bleed into the fine lines. Instead use a lip liner (the same color as your natural lip) and choose soft pinks, corals and mauves to compliment your skin tone.
