I'm 18 years old, but I can't help but think I look about 15/16. I'm pretty short, 5'3 and about a size 6/8 and a bit of a boyish figure, with no boobs to speak of
Whenever I go out clubbing or just out I always feel really self concious and young compared to all the girls with their tans and huge heels and boobs.
It doesn't help that I'm really pale either, but I look terrible with fake tan on. How I dress probably doesn't aid it either.
Anyway, here's a few pictures, suggestions would be so helpful.

I don't think the pictures are working, but there's one of my on my profile too.

Have you got a fringe?

If so, getting rid of that will instantly add a couple of years.

Hehe I have those exact shoes in the profile pic right here next to me xD

In other news, I'm basically 3 inches shorter than you and wearing braces at the moment! I also feel horrible in clubs and the like because everyone's in heels but I'm still visibly MUCH shorter than the others :o:
I don't really know what to suggest, but I think being petite is really cute on a girl anyway maybe experiment with different make up styles, darker clothes and even higher heels?

Agreed with the fringe, I got one recently and I look 20-odd now.
Basically more subtle make-up (not that I'm one to talk), good poise and dark colours.

cant offer much advice but personally i think you look quite lovely, proving me v.wrong about the lack of attractive red heads :p: wouldn't say you look like your 15/16 either tbh

I think you look fine as you are.

Also, pale suits you. Red hair + pale skin = :coma:

I'm 16 and around your height. I look my age when I'm wearing the jeans, t-shirt and sneakers combination but when I party, I wear more eye make-up, a dress which accentuates the torso and heels and I can easily pass for a 20-year old. If I'm out to purchase alcohol, I just wear heeled boots, and labels (because older people tend to be more financially stable and well-dressed).

BTW, I can't view your pictures so I can't really tell you exactly what to do. But I do hope my post helped!

you're pretty, what are you complaining about? pale skin is fine, and tanned + red hair doesnt look good. i agree with the fringe. just add more makeup, especially eye makeup - fringes bring out yoru eyes anyway - and if you dont have boobs wear a looser top with a tight bottom? and higher, higher heels

I wouldn't do this, you look good as it is.

I'd say you look about 17. Also you remind me of those twins in Skins :p:

I don't understand why you care so much though...
