    I know the feeling! When I just purchased an evening gown for a wedding, the sales lady asked if it was for my prom. Umm, yeah, 10+ years ago!

    I say embrace that you look young. If it's what you actually look like, I don't see a problem with it.

      If you do heavy makeup such as smokey eyes and dark eyeliner and you add volume to your hair you will look older. Or you can do lighter eyes and darker colored lip stick.

      Take a look at these pics of Ali Lohan (Lindsay Lohan's sister). She is thirteen. She looks so much older in the second picture.

      She looks so much older b/c her eyes are darker and instead of pin straight hair she added volume and a little bit of a pouf to her hair.

          Well actually the pic to the left is Lindsay when she was 13. LOl. But the top pic is Ali at 13 and the bottom right is Ali at 13. I think they used Lindsay's pic to show how different two sisters can look at 13 with makeup and hair.

              Thanks ladies. I know that one day I will wish to look young again, but for now I want to at least look my age and not like a little kid. I was definitely looking at styles that have more volume, softer, and not pulled so tight. I have waist length ringlet hair that is beautiful and I don't want to change it. At least not 3 months before the wedding. I donate my hair every 4 years so I have to make sure that it is at least 10 inches long from where I would like it to end up. If I get my hair too short I am fro girl and I'm tooo lazy to straighten it and even then it goes curly in a couple of hours.

              I will have to go get help with the make-up. I can count the number of times I have worn make-up my entire life on one hand.

                Mel, I have the same problem. =( People are usually shocked when I tell them how old I am. I agree with the other girls - make up and definitely false eyelashes help. Also, try adding shading under your cheekbones to create a coutouring effect.

                  i can feel your pain. i have a total baby face and am told i look way young. when i was in HS i was given crayons and a kiddy menu when we went to dinner once with my family....

                  im not much of a make up or hair guy so i cant give advice on that

                  BUTTTTT what i do advise you on is whatever is done make sure its not extreme . dont make the mistake a lot of brides do and really over do the make up and you end up not even looking like yourself. you want to be able to look back at your photos and say "damn i looked gooood" and not "who is that woman?"
