No More Mutton!

Is this your role model?

Whether you’re 60 or you’ve just turned 30 and think THAT’S IT NOW – everyone wants to remain youthful. You want to look healthy and happy no matter what age and there are things you can do to keep looking young…

Here are five simple steps that really WILL  make a difference:

1. Less really  is  more.

How many times have you heard that right? As you get older, do you feel like you should be slapping on more makeup to fill in those lines and add that glow you think you’ve lost. Well, STOP!

Keep looking fresh by easing up on the dark eyeshadows and eyeliners. Stick to frosted shadows and instead, opt for a bright lipstick! Focus on your well-cared for skin.

2. How are your locks looking?

If you still have big 80’s bangs and a crinkle perm then sorry but YOU’RE OLD. You’re not helping yourself by having a dated-trim, so pick up the latest mag, close your eyes, point your finger and choose a BRAVE new chop! dare you.

3. Dress well.

There is NO excuse for dressing even a little bit cool. Fashion is everywhere and in every form. Primark do ‘takes’ on Topshop and Topshop do ‘takes’ on the high-end stuff mere mortals cannot afford. So what’s your excuse? Get in there and copy what’s on a mannequin for starters…

4. Trendy Wendy.

Add trends sparingly. Animal print is cool yeah -but- dressing head to toe in it, ISN’T. Match a black-based outfit with a splash of print, like a hangbag, or a scarf – much more on-trend AND youthful.

5. Off the cuff.

Jewellery: Be careful! You don’t want to end up looking like a regular-bingo-attendee, nor do you want to look like you raided the local pawn shop.

If in doubt – think simple. Cuffs are in right now, as are simple pendant necklaces, oh and big rings too. But these trends aren’t allowed at once. One at a time.

So there you have it – 5 simple steps to looking [and staying] young.

Please share this with as many people as possible because, to be frank, I can’t cope with seeing mutton dressed as lamb more much longer – the more muttons that know; the better!

Peace and Love. 

Keep it light girls!
