Girls, how should I do my makeup to look my age (pics included)?

So, I'm 21, almost 22 but I don't look my age at all. I look like I'm 18 or younger. How could I do my makeup to look older? I'm all for being natural etc but it's clearly not working. I'm naturally blonde with light eyebrows and eyelashes so I usually wear mascara and fill in my eyebrows. Here's a picture of me with no makeup except for som tinted lip balm. My hair is a mess in this picture but that's beside the point. I usually wear it down, either straight or curled and I'm pretty happy with it most of the time. Any suggestions?

  • I think you look fine as you are - I think a lot of people around your age have this issue especially young women - Maybe when going to bars or whatever you need to be a certain age, wear your hair up and a more sophisticated style of make up, it tends to mature younger faces.

  • Maybe you could try a shorter hairstyle. I had someone tell me I look older with short hair back when I had a bob years ago. For makeup contouring really helps. It gives a more defined face and also helps make the baby fat on your cheeks unnoticeable. Wear a winged liner. Unless you're going for a dark smokey eye, always opt for a dark lipstick with a red tint. Light pink lipsticks are for a more youthful looks and lipsticks such as brown and dark red are for more mature looks. Check out Youtube videos on how to contour, apply winged liner, and a smokey eye. Contouring, winged liner, and smokey really help to achieve a mature look.

    • A lot of people. They always check my license when I buy alcohol and the legal drinking age in Sweden is 20

    • @asker: I think part of it is your make-up/lipstick. And actually, you do have some wrinkles around your mouth. Don't get me wrong, you don't look bad, you're cute. You just don't look as young as 22 to me.

    • Ok, thanks for explaining :)

  • You look your age tbh

    • But not older than 18 either, that's the problem :(

    • Knew I should've phrased that differently...

      You look like you're in your late 20's.

    • Oh, ok. A lot of people seem to think that. How come? What is it that makes me look old?

  • Your skin colour is biologically calibrated to be the most attractive it could be, so I will skip the make up.

    • I'm not very good at make up so that's why I asked

    • Then go find tutorials you like and practice. That's what everyone else does.

  • You look 40... If that's what baby faced looks like in your area then people 25+ must look ancient a. f...

    • A lot of people seem to think that. What makes me look old, just curious?

  • "I look like I'm 18 or younger."

    • That's what people tell me IRL. I've never been mistaken for a 30-year old :O

    • Ugh honestly some people on here enjoy being cruel, too. But in the end you should see what you value more, the opinions of a bunch of strangers on the Internet or people who know you irl.

    • Yeah, I guess you're right. Thanks for explaining. Some people have been pretty rude :(

  • lol u look 21, don't get used to make up. I just apply mascara on which is enough for me and maybe it would suit you as well

    • I'm not used to make up, that's why I asked this question in the first place. But everyone seems to think that I look my age after all (or look older) so maybe I was wrong...

  • Wear eyeliner and mascara, ditch the lipstick, lightly colour your eyebrows maybe.

    I dont actually know, Im 18 and look 16 at most

  • Hun, you look well on your way to 30. Sorry, but nothing about you looks under 18. They're lying to you.

  • I think if you changed your hair color to a red mahogony it would compliment your skin tone and make your eye color stand out. In regards to makeup check desi perkins and Chrisspy on youtube they helped me.

    • You think so? I'm quite pale, wouldn't it stand out too much?

    • I've seen girls who are really pale with that color and their skin gets so much color and it looks so beautiful.

    • Ok, I'll consider it :) thanks for the tip!
