5 Styling Tips That Will Freshen Up Your Look

Many of us have been in a situation where we are all dressed up for an event, but the reflection in the mirror shows someone who doesn’t look like us or even looks older.

The wrong hairstyle, lipstick color, or even earrings can give you a worn-out look. We’ve put together a list of styling tips to help you update your look.

1. Avoid heavy earrings

Loss of collagen and elasticity can cause the skin to lose firmness, including around the earlobes. Keep this in mind when choosing your earrings, as those that are too heavy can stretch your lobes and show your age.

2. Slick your hair back loosely

Combing your hair slicked back can make you look classy. However, wearing a tight bun accentuates strong features or certain facial disproportions. It can even make you look very serious and add years to your age.

On the other hand, a loose hairstyle with a few strands framing the face will enhance your features and give you a more casual and youthful style.

3. Style your eyebrows in a modern fashion

While the way you style your brows is very personal, thin, arched brows can make your face look stiff and aged, as they can accentuate fine lines and make makeup look too heavy.

Thick, well-defined, slightly arched brows, on the other hand, frame the face, enhance the complexion, and can shave years off your appearance.

4. Choose your colors carefully

Several factors influence our perception of someone’s appearance: body shape and lighting, just to name a few. Generally speaking, softer, lighter shades such as pale pinks, mint greens, and light blues can have a calming effect.

On the other hand, darker, more vibrant colors such as burgundy and black are more intense and can also accentuate our years.

5. Learn how to part your hair

Choosing a center part as a hairstyle can accentuate the lines of the face, give it a more resilient look and add years to the face. A side part, on the other hand, softens the forehead lines and shows off your best features.
