If you're seeking to freshen up your look, here are some tips and tricks to help make you look younger as compiled by Reader's Digest.

Lay a base of makeup primer 

Applying a layer of makeup primer is the top trick for younger looking skin.

"There are several different types of primers that can boost a youthful glow," said professional makeup artist Ashleigh Ciucci. Tinted primers can color-correct and even skin tone while silicone primers will fill in fine lines and imperfections to smooth skin's texture, Ciucci added. 

Primers with SPF would prevent sun damage as it helps smooth and soften skin. To improve complexion, look for primers with reparative formulas that have ingredients such as vitamins A, C and/or E listed on the label to enhance skin care aspects of the product.

Maximize your highlighter 

There is no need for cosmetic surgery or a brow lift, instead, use a cream highlighter to get a similar effect.

Apply a sweep along just below the brow line to achieve the illusion of a more lifted eye area, starting from the inner corner to the tail. Also dab highlighter at the tops of your cheekbone to sculpt them and along the bridge for more definition. 

Age-defying ingredients 

Tools and ingredients for homemade beauty recipes can usually be found in your kitchen, says Jenna Hipp, clean beauty expert and celebrity nail stylist.

"Reducing the appearance of age spots on your hand can be much easier, and more natural than you think," Hipp said. "Simply create a paste using baking soda mixed with the juice of potatoes, onions, and/or apple cider vinegar."

Apply the potion problem areas and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes like a mask. The combination contains natural lightening agents that can help brighten skins for days. Continue the treatment every day for a week and then for maintenance as needed.

Fresh new hair cut

Book an appointment at the salon and don't be afraid to consult your hair stylist for a youthful look to avoid making a hairstyle mistake that can age you.

"I can recommend bangs for straight hair," said celebrity hairstylist Orlando Pita, adding that it could help hide forehead wrinkles.

Those with wavy hair may want to opt for layers around your face, as the cut creates movement and makes hair look thicker. (liz/kes)
