Makeup to look older

Any advice for a 20 year old who has never worn makeup ever? I want to start wearing makeup because I have very low confidence with constantly getting mistaken as a teenager. It’s not a blessing but rather a curse. I am Hispanic so unfortunately those genes have myself appearing young. Can anyone recommend any styles or products? Thank you! 

Re: Makeup to look older

@Lemonco ,


Aww, it can be rough when people have set perceptions about you.  Don't let that mess with your confidence!  Let the makeup work the features you have! 


I don't have any specific tips aside from playing up the features you like on yourself.  If you aren't sure, maybe start with some basics, like mascara, brow gel, lip gloss.  Also, I would go through some of Sephora's content on YouTube.  They have great tutorials on how to achieve certain eye looks, so you can get a feel for what you want to do.


Here are some tried and true products for me:

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer 

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Tinted Volumizing Eyebrow Gel 4 

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara Black 

CLINIQUE Almost Lipstick Black Honey 

SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Velvet Cream Blush Palette 

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush 10 Rosé Latte 

LAWLESS Forget The Filler Lip Plumper Line Smoothing Gloss
