What are some ways to make your self look older?

most people tell me I look between 13-16 I'm 18 going on 19 very soon. I do not enjoy being told I look young like that. there are some people who say I look about 22 or 23 but that's very rare.

People say the same thing about me. Just embrace it and thank god for making you look younger. It's a very good thing, because when you get older, you will still look very young and many older people complain about how old they look.

Good point. Well i read somewhere that people with oilier skin tend to look younger than what they actually are.

Smoking.

But that's terrible for you. Only thing that came to mind... dunno why you'd wanna look older. I'd want to look younger! Maybe at 30 you'll look 24?

I understand that you don't like being told you look younger than your age but most people that are 30 or 27 say they miss their childhood and they say they look old and etc so why would you want to look older. But I do agree with you on the age difference thing. But to be honest. If you look younger than your age that is a compliment :) People age me by like 4 years and I'm just in 7th grade. I'm there like," what?Do I look that old?!"

It's good to look so young and you will appreciate it so much more as you get older. So when you are 40 you will probably look 30 and so forth. Don't worry, I look young too and it's good. My two sons look young for their ages, and my daughter did but stress has a way of making your look older and drinking will also do that.

I know it is a pain now but when you get carded before your 25th high school reunion and no one else has been carded on 10 years, it will be worth it.

Actually stay away clothes that look young. Wear things that are a bit more sophisticated.

Your hair!! And better style... The way you dress shows who you are! Wear your hair to the side pinned up.... Something that you would never do but yet looks cute. If needed! They have a lot of makeup tips on YouTube! Not to much but not to little! You want them to know you know how to care for yourself!
Maybe white skinny jeans, cute black tank top, high heels and hair pinned up! Who knows! Just my opinion:)

I've looked at your picture, and you do look like you are maybe 13 or 14. You may want to get a more sophisticated hair cut, or style & have somebody that knows what they're doing, do your makeup. Make sure that your wardrobe also reflects that of somebody who is almost 20. Doing these three things appropriately, will help you look older, or at the very least, your actual age. Now that I've actually answered your question, let me say.... don't try and look too much older than 22, or 23, because you are only almost 19. :-D

Make up goes a long way and it all depends on how you use it. I only do mascara with simple eye shadow, natural looking lipstick with lip gloss and someone asked if I was over 21. I'm 16

first, makeup maybe the liquid eyeliner with a smoky effect (no really bright colors.. that's for kids) and second, older looking style in clothes that also goes a long way lastly an older more clean cutting haircut style and color. next don't you wanna look a little young hello yolo :)

I have the same problem with people who say I look like i'm 12 when really i'm almost 17. It used to bother me but then I realized that even when i'm older I will still look kinda young. I think you should embrace it. Be yourself and don't let anything negative that people say affect you. I live by this rule now and i'm much happier now than I used to be. You are who you choose to be.

Makeup, and if you have acne, use skin cream and cover-up. Use lots of mascara and eyeliner, but don't go crazy. My sister is 16 and she looks like a 12-year-old without any makeup. Wear age-appropriate clothing too. Also, get a mature haircut.

Hair, especially your hair bang. I always wear a full bang, and people always thought I was a junior while I was senior then. Now after I changed, I feel I look much maturer. And the way you dress yourself. That also matters, and even more. Grab something maturer. No bubble dress. No cartoon hairpin. No flats everywhere. Sometimes, high heels are needed in certain occasions to show your feminine quality. That's all. :)

First I will say enjoy it while it lasts :). As for looking older it is a combination of hair style, clothing, look and attitude! Cutting your hair to slightly longer than shoulder length generally helps in making you look more mature. Clothing should be polished and accessorized, no workout clothes, etc. for makeup if you wear it you want to make sure to define your cheeks well as rounded faces often look more youthful. As far as attitude, just be confident :)

Just be more confident you don't want to go changing things about yourself like your look and etc. just to make yourself seem older. I mean, make up works if you do it right and wearing the right clothes does too but if it's not your style then you shouldn't wear it just to make you look older. All you need is a little more confidence. Just walk a bit taller and blow people away by your personality and you'll be fine :)

It's fine to be called young (more like a compliment) but if you absolutely don't want to look as young I suggest more makeup

You can put extra makeup that will make you look older then your age, but in my view everyone wants to look younger not older then there age.
