Age Defying Beauty

April 12, 2014

We all know that make up is a life saver. Our indispensable tool to cover up blemishes and conceal our dark shadows – the result of too many nights with too little sleep. Having a naturally young looking face for my age I love how a bit of cover up and sweep of mascara can make me look and feel my age. I think that is what is most important looking your age and not trying to be any younger or older than you are. I have noticed however the increasing numbers of girls who slap on layers of make up in an attempt I assume to look older when really they are spoiling the enjoyment of not NEEDING it.

Make up

I have met many girls who on first impressions I assume to be the same age as myself, but I soon discover, as on one occasion recently, that a girl is only 16 when she wears enough foundation and eye make up to be at least 20. Unable to hide my surprise at this girls actual age I said how much older she looked and she happily replied with ‘oh thank you!’ But was my remark a compliment? While it may be flattering to appear older than you are, the problem soon escalates to acting like you are older. With the rise of teenage celebrities ┬áhaving a huge influence on the lives of younger generations I am not surprised that so many girls feel the pressure to keep up. On top of that I don’t know if magazines like Miss Vogue or Teen Vogue encourage this speedy transition from child to adult or just simply nurture it?

You are so right, but when you are very young you can’t wait to look older, experimenting with hair,make-up etc, to add a maturity to yourself. But when you are very old……Well, you are still very old! And no amount of make up can change the wonderful person you have become! xx
