You can create a lot of lift by knowing how to place accessories on and around your face. For instance, a scarf knotted too low draws eyes down; instead, place the knot between your bust line and your shoulders to draw attention up to your face.
Eyebrows that are not shaped or filled in will make your face dip.
Eyebrows often thin with age, so use an angle brush and eye powder or pencil to fill in brows.
You can also counter the effect by having them professionally shaped and tinted by an esthetician.
Get your hair styled to emphasize your eyes. A great cut that highlights your eyes with bangs, waves, or angles naturally at eye level will draw the eye up.
If you wear glasses, be sure to select a pair that fits your face and emphasizes your eyes as opposed to your cheeks. Experiment with different frames to find what works best.
Small changes go a long way to help you look and feel your best!

MAKE IT ABOUT COLOUR!
Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, scarves and even shoes feature a variety of hues, and effortlessly add colour to your wardrobe.
If you prefer to wear black or navy bottoms, pick up hot pink or sapphire blue sandals, flip flops or pumps to give your basics a lift.
Scarves have evolved to become more than just a cold weather accessory. They are an all year round go-to piece for fashionistas to add style and colour to an outfit. Details like fringe, tassels, fantasy florals or border-print scarves all work for spring.
Jewellery is another fun and fashionable way to add colour. If you’re wearing printed bottoms with a neutral top, add a chunky necklace from the same colour family as the bottoms for a superb look. This look can be dressed down with runners or up with pumps for easy style.
