years younger and it's just things I've learned along the way that I'd love to

share with you but first things first there's absolutely nothing wrong with

embracing your age loving where you're at and feeling great about the skin that

you're in this video is just for fun tips and tricks to help you look younger

just so you can have some fun and enjoy the blessings that you have and now that

you're over 50 so this is kind of a video to help us look as good as we feel

because many of us are feeling a lot younger on the inside than we're looking

on the outside and it's only at this age now that I really appreciate the wisdom

and beauty of an older woman whose spirit is alive women who have been

through life work things out and learnt something along the way

and you can't be that woman I don't think in my opinion when you're 25

wrinkle-free and beautiful as they may be

it's our tribe of women over 50 who are on fire they're setting the world alight

and I encourage you as you're getting older to experiment and play with new

ideas and new techniques and new clothes and new hair and new makeup and learn

new things because we're at the prime of our life and don't let anyone tell you

anything different my first tip to looking 10 years younger in an instant

is to sort out our RBF you all know what that is it's our face when we're resting

it's when we think nobody's looking and we're not conscious of anything that

we're doing so have you ever pulled out your phone and put the camera on and

it's been in Reverse and you look at your face in that camera

and you think oh well who's that is that me because it doesn't look like you and

that can be pretty scary when you look in the phone and realize that that is

you and that's the you that everybody's looking at so this tip actually takes a

little bit of practice and it takes a little bit of looking in towards

yourself but once you learn how to do it it's actually something you can switch

on immediately and it will change the look of your face and it will also

change the way that people are perceiving you okay so when you're

resting your face usually your face is down and you'll find that your whole

tension in some part of your face for me it's here in the chin and I clench my

jaw so when I'm just resting and not thinking that is the face that I have

naturally very so I can't even do it now because I'm smiling but so it's like

that one of the best teachings of the Tao is to smile with your eyes and bring

it down your body into a full body smile and this technique you can use to get

your face to be lit up for most of the time it's kind of like a walking

meditation a life meditation so it's to switch on and think about being in the

present moment at all times and what you do is smile with your eyes first before

your mouth so you lift the corners of your eyes and then you follow by a

slight upturn of the corners of your mouth then you follow that down into

your heart and imagine turning your heart up with a smile and then you

follow that down into the organs of your body it's really good it can take ten

years off your face when you do this when you're thinking about it so

start with your eyes and slightly smile with your eyes not like a smile like

this it's just a gentle smile do it with your lips as well and the outside of

your mouth and take it into your heart all of a sudden you've transformed the

way you feel and the way that you look and you're not actually smiling you're

walking around purposefully and you're walking around conscious that you're

actually making something happen and when you go out into the world you are

projecting the smile that's going on here and here and here and throughout

your body this actually is magic and I would love

for you to tell me if it works for you ok color on our cheeks

creates a more youthful look and can actually make us look a lot younger and

did you know that when blush was first invented it was considered as immoral it

was thought only to tempt a man or to fool a man into believing a woman had

false beauty and its purpose was to mimic the look of your cheeks full of

blood after an intimate encounter thank goodness we've come so far and that we

are allowed to enjoy makeup and play with it and we don't get judged for

being ladies of the night if we're wearing blush or makeup or anything so

to recreate that blush flushed look a cream a blush is really great for older

women and a tapping on of a color is perfect and most of the time is all you

need so if you don't wear much makeup at all just adding a little bit of color to

your cheek is really going to make your cheeks pop and it will intensify the

color of your eyes and it really is just a great pick-me-up so I've got a couple

to show you here and I'm going to just apply some to my face because I haven't

got any on today the great thing about cream blush is you don't need a huge

amount of technique it's unlike a powder blush so you can just Pat it on the

apples of your cheek and everything will pop this one here is a stain and this is

great for all the women who don't wear much makeup because it's really big

and you just tap it on and that's all that you need to do so you could wear

this over bearskin or you could wear it over your foundation so I'll apply it to

this check and you just tap it on and it gives you that it gives you that flushed

look that I was talking about of an intimate encounter

oh so that's on that sheet there and another one I'm going to show you is a

cream blush made by Stiller it lasts all day and it's also very good so you just

add a little bit tap it in this is a more gentle color so this one is just

adds a little bit of pink to the top of your cheek and you tap it in and it's

very subtle this one here has a stain and it's more intense it's more it has

more of a pop so if you're a darker coloring this would be really great for

you and this one here is really great for someone with my coloring or a little

bit paler I'll do another video on blush to show you different ways to apply it

but just for this purpose just for a pop of color to help you look more youthful

this is what you can do and on top of this you can apply a highlight so this

is just a chubby stick it's not very expensive it'll probably last you

forever and you can just tap that on on the cheek and dab that in a little bit

as well so it's going to give you a little bit of a glow and it's going to

bring your cheek out because you're adding light remember whatever we add

light to we're going to bring forward and for some of the ladies who are not

used to wearing makeup at all this is a really good thing that you can do just

to get started so that you're not feeling overwhelmed by applying a whole

face of makeup this is going to be a great thing for you one thing that's

very very aging on women over the age of 50

is puffy eyes and I'm talking about puffy bags underneath here and here and

it's kind of like little pockets of fluid and this can be very aging so if

you want to look 10 years younger these areas can be addressed through finding

out what the problem is we can use concealers to kind of tone down the

color and help the color a little bit but it doesn't get rid of the problem

and traditional Chinese medicine says that if you're having puffiness around

here or discoloration it's a problem with the kidneys and potentially there's

a lot of toxins going on in your body which your kidneys are having a hard

time keeping up with and with stress out our kidneys when we have too many dried

salty processed foods or too much dairy or alcohol and all of that shows up here

underneath our eyes not only will it reduce the puffiness under your eyes but

it will also help your internal organs as well so that's what we can't see what

we see on our face what shows up on our face in our skin that is telling us that

there's further problems inside our body but to get you started and to get you on

the right track drinking lots of water helps flush out your kidneys and a lot

of women our age don't drink water and I know that I've spoken to a lot of people

they'll only have a little bit or a glass a day and that's just not enough

to keep all of the toxins out of our body we need to be drinking lots of

water and we need to remind ourselves to do it and we need to have a good quality

source of water if you can get a water bottle fill it up every day and just

make the decision that you're going to drink it and you're going to do that for

the rest of your life another thing that can help make you look 10 years younger

is getting a haircut and a hair color so if you're at the point in your life when

you're thinking about you really want to change with your hair here are some tips

that might help you make a decision hair color is really important to help us

keep our face looking youthful if the if your hair is too harsh for the color

of your skin it will automatically age you and you'll look older than what you

are so the rule of thumb is to go about two shades darker or lighter than what

you already are so now we're older we stick to what we've got and work with

that and there's so many things that you can do going one or two shades darker or

lighter also when you're going to add highlights to your hair if you're going

to do a couple of colors choose a color that would be naturally occurring if

you're out in the Sun and the salt water and adding two colors to your hair the

base color and a highlight color or a low light is going to add softness and

texture so it's going to make your hair appear a lot thicker than what it really

is another rule of thumb with here at our age is to keep it soft and layered

around the face for some of us when we get older our faces get thin and that

can be really aging so even if you do have longer hair having some soft layers

put around the face is really useful and getting a fringe cut in or bangs is

really effective it's it can be very softening and it can also cover all of

your wrinkles that you have in your throat if you have them you may not you

may be lucky but I have a lot another place on our face that sinks in as we

get older is this part here and if you're a thinner person this tends to

get hollow quite quickly and that's so if you hold your hair out there you can

notice that because on a young woman they don't have these dents but you can

cover it up with your hair so that's why having layers around your hair and you

can cover those areas it's softening and it really makes a huge difference

choosing the perfect foundation will make you look ten years younger youthful

foundation is when you look at somebody and you can't tell whether they've got

foundation on or not so it's a coverage that is blending all of your

imperfections but not masking them and sometimes you think of an old lady

having like mask of thick foundation and then powder on top and if you can

clearly see every inch of your foundation it's probably not going to be

a youthful law a lot of the younger women wear a full cover matte foundation

and if you think about it at their age they potentially got oily skin and acne

prone skin and they need to cover it up or they think they need to cover it up

but it does look like a mask and we don't want to take that on into our 50s

and 60s and 70s so a beautiful jewelry foundation creates a more youthful look

and if you've got very dry skin this is quite easy to achieve with using the

right foundation and if you've got an oily skin just try using a matte and a

full of coverage down the t-zone and try and blend it out on the outer parts of

your face here are a couple of dewy luminous foundations that I use and

there are medium coverage so if you put them on lightly and apply just a small

amount it's a beautiful coverage and your face pretty much looks foundation

free but you have it on and it's covered all your flaws and if you like a bit

more coverage you can add a second layer on top and for me that's the perfect

coverage so these three here are great to try they'll all give a dewy look it

depends on what type of consistency you love I suggest going out and testing all

the foundations and taking them home and trying them over the next week and

comparing them to each other that's the best way to get the perfect foundation

I've made a video on that I'll leave a link up here and show you but these are

my picks anyway I'll leave the links down below of what they are and another

thing that you can add to your foundation to make your skin more dewy

and more youthful is a highlighter and I've got this

Charlotte Tilbury flawless filter and it's my new favorite thing in the whole

world it's kind of like a toy because I use it in so many different ways but

I'll just show you so if you've got very oily skin don't apply any of it to the T-zone

and if you've got dry skin like me I'll just show you how I apply it but it

gives a really youthful look a Beautyblender damp and then i spray it

with my two-faced - hangover which i love it's a setting spray but it's kind

of a little bit luminous and it's beautiful so you could put that on just

like that and it gives you a beautiful jewy look over the top of your makeup

and it sets it you put a little bit of this beautiful charlotte tilbury floor

center my favorite thing and just tap it in and then you can dab that on top of

your cheekbones and you can dab it wherever you like because it's not

glittery it's not sparkly it's the most perfect consistency of anything and I

love using it every single day and it just gives your skin a glow so no matter

what foundation you're using if you use something like this on top of it it will

be beautiful and you'll love it I promise you this product alone if you're

one of those ladies who's not used to wearing makeup and hasn't been wearing

makeup for many years but wants to get started this is a really good product

for you as well so you could wake up wash your face just put a little bit of

this on to add a little bit of a glow to your skin a bit of blush lippy and

you're out the door and you're looking fabulous and of course exercise is the

perfect way to look 10 years younger if you can start exercising every single

day for the rest of your life 5 minutes 10 minutes 20 minutes 30

minutes just decide to do it because at our age our health has to be the number

one most important thing that we focus on because we're getting to the time in

our life when we're thinking about how many years there are left hopefully for

all of us there's many many years left but we don't have that luxury of saying

you know in 50 years 50 we're already there we're 50 60 and

70 years old and we're going to be strong and powerful and vital for the

rest of our lives so I say this in my videos we don't need to be athletes now

or over 50 but we do need to do some form of physical exercise every single

day so whether it's putting on your headphones getting out the door blocking

off the rest of the world and just walking to get your heart rate up and to

start feeling good and there's lots of workouts that you can do online I've got

a whole lot of workouts that you can do I'll leave a link up here but just do

something even if you're injured or even if you're in a wheelchair you can do arm

exercises you can do something to stimulate the blood flow within your

body okay my last tip is genius I've got to share this with you I learned this

from a friend who is a famous singer and she goes to lots of red-carpet events

and her stylist does this to her hair to give her an instant facelift that takes

10 years off her face and this is what you do so you take the sides of your

hair and you plat them and then you tie them at the back of your head but look

at this this is what it does it gives you this look so look at my cheek here

and then I'm pulling it so I'm going to do that for you and show you how to do

it but it gives you from this look to this look and it makes a huge difference

it's not the most comfortable thing to wear by the end of the night but if

you've got a special event and just save it for special events because otherwise

you're going to hate me but try it and do it if your hair is long enough you're

going to need to have enough hair to tie the two pieces at the back and let me

know how you go okay so you take this much hair you do a tight flat

rap a band okay so that's one side and then you do the other side

okay so you've got two plots here then you take it around to the back like that

and then you tie it like this and then you pull your hair out so that will look

like you can't tell it's there and you can do an updo with this as well and if

you pull it tight you've got to get it just right and you'll see your face your

cheeks lift up like you've had a facelift so this is so much fun and

you've got to secure it quite tightly at the back so it stays in by the end of

the night you're ready to take it out but it's a fun trick to try so let me

know if this works for you please give a thumbs up if you enjoyed this video and

share it with your girlfriends who are over 50 thank you so much for watching

and have a beautiful week
