Dominique is a vlogger with over a million subscribers. Her channel’s goal is to provide mature women with useful tips on wellness, health, and beauty.

In one of her most popular videos, Dominique gives tips on how to look at least ten years younger. Her advice is practical and cheap.

She knows that women in their prime are at a great stage in life. However, she believes most women have a tendency to self-limit because of comfort or fear of dressing inappropriately. Fortunately, through the video, she helps undo some of women’s “go-to styles” by presenting smart alternatives.

Tip #1: Avoid the all-black combination

The all-black suit may be great for job interviews and power lunches but for daily wear, it is best to avoid this look. Black tends to be harsh against the aged skin. It also makes the skin and eyes look more hollow.

Dominique suggests that in order to accentuate the face’s glow, it is better to use more neutral tones near the face. In her example, she paired a black flirty skirt with a checkered tan jacket and a white tank top. She completed the look with a pair of strappy sandals to elongate her legs. This combination makes her look a bit lighter and freer.

Tip #2: Choose the right patterns

Patterns are nice but women seem to prefer those designed with hard geometric shapes and dark shades. Dresses with such designs are also often cut in a way that bulges the chest and arms area.

Dominique advises that patterns should be used to work for the wearer. Thus, choosing brighter colors with the right pattern size is necessary. By choosing the right palette, you can choose make-up that complements the look. It will result in a younger-looking skin tone. She also advises looking for wrap-around dresses to maximize the positive effects of the better pattern choice.

Tip #3: Update your jeans collection

The skinny jeans, loose blouse, and chunky heels were the go-to style of many for years. However, the time for wearing only skinny jeans is over. Nowadays, the jean trends are quite diverse. Women have more freedom to choose what’s best for their body and personal style.

Dominique suggests that ankle crops are the best. They come in many styles — mom jeans, fitted or loose — and it helps elongate the body. They are both modern and classy. However, for her, the best thing about these jeans is that it enables the wearer to be playful with footwear. She suggests wearing strappy heels or mules as they are stylish and fun.

Tip #4: Lose the jersey shirts and round necklines

Dominique advises everyone that even though jersey material is comfortable, women should skip them as they tend to stick to the body’s bulges. She also warns that high and round necklines tend to cut you off. They also accentuate the wrong parts.

A crisp and collared shirt with a v-neck is the way to go. It draws attention to the collar bone and the jaw line. It also gives a bit of an edge. Apart from that you can be more playful with the accessories, jeans and shoes that you wear with it.

Tip #5: Choose the right eyewear

According to the American Optometric Association, eyesight experiences a slight deterioration from 41 years old onward. Thus, at this stage, eyeglasses become a staple in one’s life.

Dominique suggests that instead of buying thick with rectangular shapes like the one pictured above, women should buy lighter and jewel-toned ones like the one below. This way, the hollows in one’s eyes are not too obvious.

Tip #6: Self-Tan

Dominique’s most recommended tip for looking younger is to self-tan. It’s the safest way for women to achieve a golden glow. With self-tanning, you can easily add some warmth and depth to your skin without hassle.

Looking younger has never been as easy or as cheap as this

Dominique points out that a lot of her fashion tips (except perhaps for the eyewear) do not require a trip to the store. Most likely, you have these staples waiting to be used in your closet. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
