How old do I look?

Recommended Posts

I would say 25-27 just based on the eyes and the overall facial contour. But it really is hard to tell someone's age by looking at a photo, especially since this one is a bit blurry,

Wow this is really different from the comments I get in person haha. Everyone thinks I'm 17ish and even when I sign papers they ask for my parents signature. I am really only 22. :P It is interesting how different you guys' view was from those I know in person.

the rule of thumb is that people you meet in RL will always underestimate a woman's age by 5 years.  It isn't that someone looks 5 years younger, but just that they don't want to make her feel old

 

I had a hard time because of the makeup - it is really a nice application,  but it would have been better to see your face without makeup (or less of it?)  Sometimes too much makeup adds a few years.

 

I was carded for years (and this was before the "we card everyone" rule) when I used to smoke.  I was carded for cigs when I was 33.

I can see 17 and I can also see late 20s. The makeup made you look older than you are but I agree with the other post that is usually what happens with makeup and your make-up is on fleek. (I have always wanted to use that word in a sentence)

I agree I do wear quite a bit of makeup and although I like it I plan on cutting it down. I have matured since I started applying my makeup this way but feel like my makeup hasn't matured haha. Do you guys like it or think I should change it? Some people love it in real life, some despise it haha. Since were on the topic, what do you guys think?

I think your makeup is fantastic - but I would save it for going out and parties, such like that.   you have such a beautiful eye shape and I would love to see more of your eye :D   You can still use black eyeliner, but I was thinking of a thinner line - also you have such fine delicate features in your face, have you tried to pull your hair away from your face?  

 

I am just thinking that changing it up just a little bit to show your beautiful face and lovely features - because you are blessed with them - might be something you like.

Well thank you for the nice words. :) I agree with you, it is not really an everyday look. 

I actually have really low self esteem so the hair in the face always made me feel more "covered up". 

 

You inspired me to start a new post since this got a little out of subject.
