I thought the point of makeup was to look sexy/sophisticated? Then again I never considered that it's also supposed to make you more youthful...I always associate sophisticated with maturity/being older though? Thoughts?
(It feels weird to be told that my attempt at looking sophisticated made me look even younger. Am not complaining about looking younger thank God. )

I think it makes one look "more culturally acceptably presentable", aka "prettier".
I also think it tends to look bad on everyone, and I hate everything that messes with the natural way eyes look, which includes eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara. But without those, lipsticks look completely off-key, so I dislike those as well. Personal preference, but I stand by it.

It depends perhaps on the application, amount and make up itself I think. Usually putting make up on at a young age makes you look older and applying it when you're older (albeit appropriate to your age lol) makes you look younger. If you have a baby face though make up can make you look younger, enhancing your eyes to make them look bigger and more youthful and adding blush to your cheeks can make you look more baby-like. I'm 22 and I passed for a 14 year old WITH make up lol beat that :P
I have to remind myself when I got put onto a 'kid speed' ride Disney that I won't be complaining when I'm older... >.<
