I'm pretty damn young, I'm always mistaken for a 18-23 year old and it really bothers me. I don't know how to change my appearance by looking younger or maybe my glasses makes me look more sophisticated and older. Looking smart, I don't mind. I look like a secretary with them and my hair pined up. I don't know what to do. I want to look like my age. I'm hating on the fact that people think I'm a fricken adult which I'm not. Then they treat me like one which is unfair. I don't like it at all.
Yeah, I wear eyeliner. Not heavy as I toned it down and just a little bronzer so I have that youthful glow to my cheeks. Just a dab and nothing else.
Please help me? Thanks in advance. =)

Skin care is important at any age range,any skin color,nationality,race or ethnicity.Skin can be the biggest age teller,with the neck,hands and eyes being the biggest giveaway in age.Poor skin care habits can allow for the aging process to go faster and you can age a little pre-maturely.
-Cleanse:Use a cleanser that is right for your skin type;oily,dry,combination,normal,sensitive etc.If your skin is on the drier or more sensitive side,go for a cream like cleanser,if your skin is more oily or prone to break outs,go for a gel like cleanser with Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide(if you have breakouts),if you don't have breakouts then a gel based cleanser.
Tone:Use an alcohol free toner.Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner or ProActiv Revitalizing toner work well and are gentle.If you have acne or oily,Witch Hazel works wonders.
Moisturize:In the AM,use an oil free moisturizer that contains SPF 30 or higher,in the PM use a moisturizing repairing oil free moisturizer.

-If you use eye make-up,aim for lighter,brighter colors as they are more youthful,pinks in particular give off a younger look.
-With blush,again,a rosy or pink color gives off a youthful look.
-If you use mascara,try to aim for a wide eye look rather than trying to "enhance" your almond shaped eyes.
-Workout 30-60 minutes a day
-Wear clothing that fits your age range
-Generally floral,polka dots,pinks,yellows,oranges and light colors are associated with youthfulness.
