2. For an instant anti-aging trick, stand next to someone who’s at least 30 years your senior.

3. Don’t underestimate the power of a red lip.

4. If you’re going without makeup, make sure your skin is flawless.

5. When in doubt, wear a hat.

6. You’ll never have a bad hair day if you stick to braids and updos.
