I'm confused. Do you want to look younger or older?
I always thought a nice updo and a sexy but not showy dress is nice.
Posture will say a lot.

Okay, I'll rephrase it. I was to look younger in photographs. I get excited when I post in forums so usually my first post is usually a mess lol.

A smile helps. The right wardrobe can give a younger sense, too.
If you were wearing the same makeup you had in your avatar, an updo, and a little black dress...you'd have sexy and sophisticated perfectly suited for the Red Carpet.

Technically you always look younger in photographs.

Generally I would avoid heavy makeup, it add years both good and bad depending on ones age.

Clean coverage makeup, maybe a little brighter under the eyes to help with any dark bags, DEFINITELY no contouring. A fuller face tends to appear younger. Stop going so black around your eyes. A brighter color lipstick or just a simple gloss can help.
A simple high ponytail projects youth. Most important would be the wardrobe. Dress young and you'll look younger.
And then some can be controlled with the photographer's choice in lighting and retouching. But if you're talking for red carpet type stuff, it's all on you.

Okay, if I'm shooting a model and we're going for a younger look, here are a couple of things I'd suggest:
--soft light is always flattering. It hides skin flaws, small scars, and wrinkles. It makes women look younger.
--some body parts (especially women's triceps if they're floppy or big) tend to add age.
--don't scrunch up your face or wrinkle your forehead.
--avoid really heavy makeup, especially foundation and pancake.
--clothing and hair styles can make a big difference. No, I don't mean the extreme of dressing like you're in middle school. But a lot of evening wear or a very classic appearance...while glamorous...may also make you look older.

Alright. But still, thank you for those who gave me some good advice.

Dress like a young girl trying to dress like an older woman. You might have to act like it too.
