Many crossdressers and transgender women tell me that it was easier for them to look feminine when they were younger.
The truth is, you can look beautiful and feminine at any age!
While nobody can stop the clock, there are some simple ways to shave a few years off your appearance – if that happens to be a goal of yours.
Read on for 7 simple ways to look younger now.
1. Choose the Right Hairstyle
Hair has a huge impact on your appearance. Long hair is undoubtedly feminine, but be careful – hair that’s too long can emphasize drooping.
Consider these styles for a fresh, youthful look:
- Shoulder length hair – This length is universally flattering.
- Bangs – Bangs are cute, youthful, and perfect for hiding forehead wrinkles.
2. Add Some Sex Appeal
While you shouldn’t dress like a 20 year old, you definitely want to avoid looking like a buttoned-up old lady.
Here are some ways to add a bit of youthful sex appeal to your look:
- Wear high heels and flirtatious stockings.
- Choose clothes in sensuous fabrics – like lace, velvet, and fur.
- Show some skin (just not too much!).

3. Get Enough Sleep
We all need our beauty sleep, but the older you get, the more a lack of sleep shows up on your face.
Under-eye bags, dark circles, and sallow skin distract from a feminine look, so be sure to make sleep a priority.
4. Add Some Color to Your Wardrobe
If you usually wear a lot of black or neutral tones, try adding some bright colors to your wardrobe. Bright colors have a youthful vibe and liven up your appearance.
5. Whiten Your Teeth
Teeth are a subtle cue of age – old teeth tend to look yellow or grey.
Whitening your teeth brightens your face and takes years off of your appearance. Try Crest White Strips for cheap and easy tooth whitening.
6. Use the Right Skin Care Products
Most skin creams don’t deliver on their “miracle in a bottle” promises. However, there are certain ingredients that have proven anti-aging benefits.
Fight wrinkles and firm your face by using products that contain one or more of the following ingredients:
- Vitamin C
- Hyaluronic acid
- Alpha hydroxy acid
- Green tea
You can find affordable products with these ingredients in any drug store.
Yes, it’s trite advice, but smiling really is the fastest way to improve your appearance!
A smile lifts the cheeks and acts like an instant facelift. Smiling also gives you a pleasant look and puts people at ease – making it easier to blend in as a woman.
Beautiful at every age

From the day I was born, I’ve never been old. So why start now? In fact, I don’t think I know how!
YEAH I’D LIKE TO COMMENT ON LAURA’S COMMENT I TOO AM A LATER- IN-LIFE TRANSITIONER (I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S THE RIGHT TERMINOLOGY TO BE USING TO BE DESCRIBING MYSELF OR NOT BUT IT’S HOW I FEEL.)
I JUST CAME OUT TO MY SISTER JUST LAST SUMMER. AND YOU SHOULD HAVE HEARD HER PRAISING ME TO FINALLY BEING MYSELF.
Congratulations Miss Daisy! I was 58 when I started my transition. So I know how difficult it can be. I’m glad that there are people in your life that are supportive. They can be hard to find sometimes. Nobody wants to be a source of embarrassment to the ones they love. I hope your days will always be filled with peace and joy!
I am 62, recently retired. In the last two (maybe 3) years gravity has snuck up on me. The dreaded beer belly has appeared.
What’s the best way to camoflage it? Prior to A-line dresses were my go to. Of tights/leggings and A-line tunics. I wear Mary Janes for a business casual look, and 3 to 4″ pumps for sexy Saturday nights. At 6’2″ lower heels are best.
The beer belly has to go of course, but in the meantime I need to hide it.
Plus, need make-up hints for severely hooded eyes. That are very nice blue and naturally long lashes – when I open them up.
I’m 73 and fully transitioning. I’ve waited all my life to be who I really am. My partner of 49 years passed last year and I have only myself to please. Yes I have regrets. I wish I had been born a cis woman. But I refuse to go to my grave a fraud. My heart and soul have alway been those of a cis woman. Wish me luck. 2020 is the year I break free from my cocoon and catch the wind.
62 y/o and I dress,go out and do shopping Men have held doors for and call mam or hon. Feels so good and pleasing to me. I dress sexy,heels,stockings, skirt, face make up with a smile. Best of all for me it is not a sexual thing to me, hope i see a reply
That’s so wonderful, Maryanne! I hope this wonderful life as a happy woman continues for you to eternity!
Great ideas! I actually find it easier to look feminine as I age. When you’re younger, you have to work a lot harder to look like the women at that age. It’s all about makeup, fashion, exercise, body shaping, looking sexy, on and on. Many older women remain beautiful but talk about finally having the confidence to just be themselves without all of what the beauty industry expects. As we age, women and men converge somewhat, and understated fashion and beauty goes a really long way.
======]]0I couldn’t agree more @ 50y/o this month I think that I can tell of my observations.. I wasted many of the youthful years on silly things like being too afraid , to be out at all…. 5 years ago was the very beginning of my transformation. Your coment or excusee
Turned 50 this year I also wasted a lot of years being too afraid of coming out to my family but now that I’m out my intention is to fully transition just hope I have a lot of supporters to help me along the way
