There is also a cream Venom or Snake Venom that temporarily fixes them.
I don’t think they are that bad though!

@langloiswedding2013: wrinkles are like hair loss. No way to correct what’s been done, but you can work to prevent more. I’d suggest a product with retinol. A derm friend of mine once explained that retin a is the best wrinkle prevention as it is the only thing that actually repairs collagen. I’ve been using it since age 24 (by chance- I got breakouts into my 30s). I have zero wrinkles and people often think I’m 26 instead of 34.

Try L’Oreal Miracle Blur.. I had a sample of it and it worked really great to help fill in wrinkles. Love it!
By the way- you look stunning! No one will even notice any tiny little wrinkles anyways. 🙂

I honestly did not even notice it at first glance. You’re beautiful and the makeup looks great!
Other than the options above, what about cutting in bangs of some sort? I know it’s not going to deminish anything, but it’s a great, cheap solution!

No one will notice them in person–they’ll be focused on your fabulous smile–but if photos are your concern, talk to your photographer. They can photoshop or airbrush those out of your favorite pictures.
My sister got a TERRIBLE and awkward triangular sunburn just above where the neckline of her dress falls three days before her wedding. She covered it with makeup as best she could, but if you knew it was there–you could still see it. She was SO upset about it. That said, no one noticed it that didn’t know about it already. Without even being asked, her photographer totally took care of it. You couldn’t see it in any of the photos.

I think your gorgeous smile will distract from the wrinkles, which are only there cause you’re smiling, so don’t stress! I try to embrace any wrinkles cause I think of what my nana used to tell me when I asked her about her wrinkles, she’d say “each wrinkle was a story of wisdom she had learnt over time.” Corny, but cute 😉

you’re beautiful! makeup can do wonderful things if applied correctly. you look too young for Botox. I am in my late 30s and considered Botox and fillers for my lines actually made an Appt. but cancelled it. try getting a facial with microdermabrasion , after a few sessions you will notice the improvement in your skin texture right away. Also, find a great makeup primer.

I agree with a PP that suggested Retin-A. Also, I’m only 27 and I’ve had botox for my forehead lines. Honestly, it is not a big deal AT ALL. Its nothing. I look completely normal and natural, my lines are just gone. I was nervous when I first went and I wondered if I was making a mistake, but since its only temporary I went through with it. Seriously it took 5 minutes and I am so happy with the results. Not scary or extreme.

Noooo they’re smile lines! Also, you’re gorgeous and no one will notice.

I think you look beautiful, too! If anything, your skin looks somewhat dry. Try using organic coconut oil at night, on your whole face, incuding around eyes.
Also, don’t use frosty shadow! It amplifies wrinkles!

thank you for your kind words everyone. ive been using coconut oil on my skin for the last…. im gonna say 3 months? its helped alot with the dryness of my skin. i know my forehead wrinkles are from me squinting all the time…. im supposed to wear glasses but i HATE them and never do so i squint lol. i think ill try some topical creams first and see if they help. im deathly afraid of needles, they would have to knock me out before they could come at my face for botox.

@mamadingdong: +1. Retinol is exactly what I was going to say.

@langloiswedding2013: You getting a pro photographer? You can airbrush. I don’t think the crowsfeet are bad, though… like everyone has them when they genuinely smile.
Ever since I could understand, my mom would tell me not to wrinkle my forehead. If you can possibly untrain yourself to do that, your wrinkles won’t get any worse (and might fade). I just don’t move my eyebrows up a lot (like some people REALLY do when they talk). I’m almost 28 and have zero lines on my forehead.

I think you look beautiful, smile lines are a sign of happiness, and even celebs have them. Thier photos are airbrushed per their requirements. to all, please be careful about Botox on your forehead, it causes eyebrow drop over time for many women.
I’m a MUA, and what I do for fine lines is first moisturizer obviously and then, after applying make up, I take a q tip lightly to the lines to soften them. Foundation and powder exaggerate the lines, so just blur the make up there.
I am not a skin specialist, but there are aca peels and other light peels that can freshen the skin with relatively little downtime. They are supposed to help with fine lines. BUT, your fine lines are just a sign that you’re human and not an infant:-) you’re beautiful!
