A lot has been said about how to guard your youth with clothes and makeup. However, the two most stylish sisters in the UK have another secret (or rather, as many as five). And it concerns the correct selection of jewelry.
The Duchess of Cambridge, although she can be very democratic in choosing clothes, but perhaps everyone will envy her jewelry collection. Here, as you know, the wife of Prince William is much more demanding and inventive. And for a reason: as Belinda Scott, a representative of one of the Duchess’s favorite jewelry brands Heavenly Necklaces, recently admitted, Catherine uses jewelry not only to demonstrate her status, but also to “rejuvenate” her face profitably.
Pippa Matthews is not far behind her older sister, who, according to the expert, has already managed to study the features of her own face so much that now she skillfully selects not only the shape of her jewelry, but also their color.
On the other hand, the expert is sure that it is not necessary to have a jewelry box bursting with jewelry in order to master the precious art of rejuvenation of the Middleton sisters. It is enough to master these five uncomplicated rules.
Round earrings “balance” the long oval of the face
If you look closely, neither the Duchess of Cambridge nor her sister almost never wear long earrings. And if they do, then most often they are models in the form of a drop or necessarily with a ball at the bottom. Why? The optics just work here.
If you were fond of optical illusions as a child, then you probably remember: an oval will not look oblong if there is a round object next to it. With age, our whole face — the skull, nose, ears – tends to lengthen (the representatives of baby face are the most lucky), so a simple anthropological principle works here: children have round faces, adults have oval ones. Therefore, in order to visually look younger, it is only necessary to soften the oval of the face. In what, according to optical laws, round accessories will help you.
Don’t be afraid of color
Alas, many of us have a terrible habit of hiding our beauty under black clothes. The idea that black is a universal classic is so ingrained in our minds that sometimes we completely forget about the existence of other colors. Moreover, most often we don’t even understand what a cruel joke this color can play on us. The most offensive thing about it is that it definitely ages most women, neutralizing the natural blush of their face and making the skin tone painfully gray. The situation is aggravated even more if, together with a black outfit, you put on boring, almost transparent white stones. Of course, this rule is not universal, but still there is a risk that you will look like a frame from a black-and-white movie. And he’s quite serious.
And yet, if you can’t give up black in clothes at all, then try refreshing it with colored jewelry. Fiery rubies or emeralds will perfectly set off tanned faces. And calm sapphires will perfectly emphasize the aristocratic pallor of the skin, removing the painful yellowness.
Close the lobes
As mentioned above, with age, everything in our face lengthens. Including the ears. Moreover, since over the years the tissues in our body become less elastic, our earlobes can also hang down ugly (especially if you have loved to wear heavy massive earrings all your life). So, purely on a psychological level, such a “flaw” is also associated with age.
But even here there is quite an elegant way out: choose earrings that will cover most of the earlobe. For example, enlarged “carnations” or clips.
Remember about eye color
You can follow the path of least resistance and follow the rule “eye color = stone color”. We choose sapphires or topazes for blue eyes, emeralds or malachite for green, citrines, yellow diamonds or amber for brown.
But you can also play on the contrast. For example, to emphasize blue eyes with the transparent purity of a diamond to evoke associations with the splash of sea waves or with a cloudy sky. Brown eyes “highlight” with a playful emerald to repeat the colors of oak or spruce forests. And shade the green ones with fiery rubies (remember how juicy a cut watermelon looks). In short, be inspired by nature. She is known to be the best colorist.
Here the logic is extremely simple: the mother-of-pearl white color of this stone perfectly emphasizes the peach blush on the cheeks, and also highlights and brightens the whites of the eyes, giving the look a glow. And, of course, makes teeth whiter. And all this, as you might guess— is a clear sign of health and youth of the body.
