The pressure to appear younger is littered throughout the media. Of course, feeling youthful can be beneficial as you age, but constantly trying to look younger is sometimes more trouble than it’s worth.
Instead, reframe your mindset. Instead of trying to look younger, think about looking more modern.
This way, you don’t need to abandon your style or age – you just get to upgrade it.
Stop comparing yourself to others, or even to the younger version of yourself. Being the best version of yourself today is the greatest gift you can give to yourself tomorrow. What does that mean for beauty? It means aiming for modern. With these tips, you can get started right away.
Our Favorite 4 Tips:
- Don’t hide your figure: Your body is beautiful, in every shape and size. With age, many women will try to hide their figure using loose-fitting clothes, and unflattering patterns. This is not doing you any favors. Dress for the skin you are in, and be bold! Try out different fits, styles, and colors, that you convinced yourself were not “right” for you. We’re not suggesting you need to buy a pair of skinny jeans, but don’t leave your body behind as you get older. You can look fabulous at any age.
- Use products built for mature skin: When your skin looks good, you’ll feel good. Fine lines and wrinkles happen naturally for women over 50. If you want to soften those age defining factors, make sure you are using products that are made specifically for mature skin. With a moisturizer like the Fièra Anti-Aging Apple Cream that includes active ingredients such as hydrolyzed collagen, vitamin E, vitamin C, and apple stem cells, you can be sure your moisturizer is working hard for you. Believe it or not, your makeup can actually do much of the same! Check out more products by Fièra Cosmetics to see what your makeup can do for you.
- Hairstyle: You don’t need to dye your hair, or tuck it away in a bun. If your hair has begun to change color, embrace it! As a matter of fact, gray hair is trending among young adults. Go figure! The thing you need to remember about taking care of your hair as you age is the importance of moisture. Having hair care products that help bring moisture to your scalp is essential. Once your hair is feeling good, try sporting different styles, or cuts. Ask your hairstylist what the best way to frame your face is. Sometimes adding bangs, a few layers, or some angles to your hairstyle can transform your look immediately.
- Makeup tricks: There are certain ways you can make yourself look more modern with just a simple makeup hack. For example, your concealer. Using a concealer that is made for mature skin is the best way to even out your skin tone, and cover any blemishes without it seeping into any fine lines or wrinkles. Ready for more? Ditch the eyeliner. Instead, take a shade of eyeshadow that will compliment your eyes, and sweep it gently underneath your waterline. This will make your eyes pop without weighing your face down. Lastly, lose the lip liner, and pick modern lipstick colors that will keep you looking classy, and trendy.
You don’t have to change who you are, or how you look. At Fièra Cosmetics, we’re all about lifting women up to reach their full potential. That’s what we’re doing together today. Instead of trying to look “younger,” take these tips and start looking more modern.
