Raw and honest, Rachel Wilkerson’s blog, The Life & Lessons of Rachel Wilkerson, is captivating and heartfelt. Covering the trials and tribulations of her personal life, her blog gives advice on everything from the serious (like moving house, which is so stressful) to the mundane (fun nail art!) and everything in between. We appreciate anyone that keeps it real the way she does, so we’re excited to have her as this week’s guest blogger.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more aware of age-appropriate beauty. I feel older, more mature, and more capable, and I want my looks to represent that. But as someone who loves trying the latest beauty trends, I’ve had to work a bit harder to be sure I look age-appropriate. Here’s how I make sure I don’t look like I’m trying too hard to be younger or older.
Follow trends you love and ones that seem like a natural fit for your current look. The key is to wear the look and not let the look wear you. Don’t follow every trend that comes along; just follow ones that make you say, “That’s so my style!” Not everyone can rock the kind of lavender hair normally reserved for little old ladies, but when Kelly Osbourne did it, we all took one look and realized it was clearly a natural progression of her look and style.
