How can I make myself look older?

I'm 18 years old but I'm very small and my face is quite round. People often say I look 12 when I'm now a woman. I am quite shy for my age which might make me look younger. I don't know. I'm trying to go to college on the train and people come up and ask me where my mum is and I shouldn't be travelling alone. When I tell people I'm 18, they don't believe me. They just look at me as if I'm lying. People are even treating me like a kid and they still call me a little girl. It's odd because I have a womanly figure but they still think I'm 12 which is ridiculous. I wear make up and I straighten my hair. I even contour my cheekbones but it still doesn't work. Any make up tips or hair tips or anything because this is driving me mad. I don't wear heals to college because I travel 20 mins on the train and I like to get there on time. I wear normal everyday trainers. Maybe wearing trainers is the thing that makes me look like a kid.
