How to Look Younger -- Hair and Makeup Tricks

Demi Moore

Dimitrios Kambouris
Here is Demi in 2012, almost 20 years later, looking ageless. She could pass for a 33-year-old, even though when this picture was taken she had just turned 50. That's right, 50.

Although she has vehemently denied having any plastic surgery done on her face (in Elle UK's May 2010 magazine, she copped to having plastic surgery done on her body, but not her face), I would guess that Moore has definitely gone under the needle, if not the knife.

My guess is she's had fillers along the sides of her face and Botox, because when she smiles, there are very few lines. She's very, very thin, yet her square-shaped face remains full and vibrant. It is not the face of a skinny woman at age 50.

You have to be careful if you go this route, however, because we've all seen bad cosmetic dermatology. Lisa Rinna lips, anyone? If you do opt for fillers, choose a board-certified dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon and read my article Hollywood Secrets to Looking Younger first. And if you want a face lift, definitely do your research first to find the right surgeon.

So what about Moore, what will she do as she inevitably ages? She tells Elle, "You know what? Maybe one day I'll go under the knife. It just irritates me that people are constantly saying how much I've spent on plastic surgery."

To get this look without going under the knife or needle: Instead of heavy foundations and powders, which settle into fine lines and wrinkles, opt for a sheer tinted moisturizer (I like Laura Mercier), dewy pink blushes on the apples of cheeks and a swipe of bronzer across forehead, cheeks and nose (wherever the sun naturally hits). Creamy formulas work better than powders, because the creams works to "plump up" the skin.
