Makeup Looks That’ll Take Years Off Your Face

You should be proud of every step of your aging process, but maybe you don’t want your makeup to spell out your DOB for the world to see. Nothing wrong with that! Instead of trying to turn back time by busting out the ‘80s blue eyeshadow (which will probably make you look even older, btw), turn to beauty looks that have subtly youthful features. Believe it or not, something as simple as filling in your eyebrows or adding in a healthy and natural flush with blush can take years off of your face. Keep scrolling for a few makeup looks, as demonstrated on top celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Viola Davis, that’ll keep everyone asking for your ID.

All the Gorgeous Looks from the Women in Film Awards Red Carpet

No doubt about it: Tracee Ellis Ross is badass. Who else could show up to the red carpet in a pink Max Mara sweater tucked into a belted, body-hugging fuchsia skirt paired with a pink head wrap? That’s what she did on Tuesday in L.A. at the 2017 Crystal + Lucy Awards presented by Max Mara. “I feel like I’m right out a sorbet-gelato house,” she told InStyle. “I feel delicious in this array of colors, and I’ve paired it with this lovely head wrap. I feel like Wonder Woman.” Pops of color aside, it was her acceptance speech for the Lucy Award for Excellent in Television that captured everyone’s attention. Ross moved the audience with her words on the stage. “There's some great stuff happening on television right now, and at the same time there is work to be done on the representation of black women on television, and how women of color are represented in media overall. As black women specifically we are often objectified, over-sexualized, and sass-ified. So to see Bow, my character on Black-ish, as something other than that on a hit mainstream TV show is really important,” she said. “Why are black women underrepresented in the stories that get told? That question is not just a question for black women.” Elizabeth Banks took home the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film and told InStyle all about her excitement. “It’s a little surreal, I was Face of the Future over a decade ago and I’m already getting the Old Lady in the Business Award, so I’m not sure what that says about the industry, or maybe I just did a lot of things in the last eight years. But I’m excited to be in this company and I love this organization,” she said. As for this year’s Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award, it went to the fabulous Zoey Deutch. The actress has touching words to share for women around the world. “One thing that I experienced in high school was that I wanted to let my flaws define me. I wanted to be stubborn and say that the negative things about me made me who I was and as I started to grow a little bit I realized that my flaws don't define me,” she told us. “I'm greater than the sum of my flaws, and the more you work on yourself, the happier you are.” Scroll down to see the best looks of the night from the likes of Lupita Nyong'o, Aisha Tyler, and Brittany Snow.
