Threading! I have my top lip and chin done and it's amazing how anti-ageing it is. It's also great for eyebrows although I just tend to use tweezers and a good eyebrow product - the Bobbi Brown long wear brow pencil is a thing of wonder. Also, depending on your skin type, look for products that contain hyaluronic acid, retinol and glycolic acid. What is your skincare routine like?
An eyebrow tint and shape. Definitely agree with teeth whitening, not Hollywood white, just a few shades. Light make up. If your hair is straight, add some waves. Think about your wardrobe, trendy it up a bit. I am 44, always trying to look younger ;-)
Definitely agree with sorting out eyebrows. I've had a few comments lately that I'm looking 'really well' despite feeling half asleep
The only difference in my appearance is that I had a session with a make up artist recently, who made my eyebrows look bigger/fuller without the drawn on scary-brow look. I was shocked by how much better I looked and have been copying her ever since.
I also make time to put on at least some make up every morning - years ago if I went without I just looked younger - now I just look much older....
rose it depends what you deem 'white'. Certainly Tippex white teeth can look false and too try hard, and slightly ridiculous. But whitening your teeth a few shades brighter instantly lifts your whole face and makes you look much fresher.
It's very rare for anyone to have naturally thick and luxuriant eyelashes as they go into middle age, but that doesn't stop middle aged women from using mascara does it?
Are we all meant to walk around with our faces totally natural then, with zero enhancement?
