How to Look Younger -- Hair and Makeup Tricks

Florence Welch, November 2010

Guess how old singer Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine is? She looks about 40 here, but she was born in 1986 making her only 24 in this picture, taken in November 2010.

So why does Welch (who happens to be one of my favorite singers) look older than her years? Aside from the fact that this is an unflattering photo of her, Welch looks older than her years in most pictures I see of her. The harsh hair color combined with pale, pale skin ages her. If she wanted to look younger, she should tone down that hair color and get some healthy pink in her skin.

Those clothes aren't helping her, either. She needs to dress her age, not her mother's.

And smiling. Smiling can make someone look 10 years younger.
