She then posted a caption which read: “When people on TikTok think you’re 47, but you turn 28 next week….”
And it wasn’t long before her post, which garnered over 335,000 views, was inundated with very mixed responses.
Some people agreed that Emily looked older than her real age – and offered tips on how she could look younger.
“Its the clothes/style not you,” noted one.
A second commented: “It’s your hair and makeup that age you. Your skin is beautiful.”
A third agreed: “Not in a bad way at all, but I honestly think it’s your makeup style, facial expressions and style. But you’re beautiful so do you!”
Meanwhile, a fourth suggested: “You are very pretty! You should try a middle part, I think it will make you look your age.”
Another wrote: “Hey friend! Wear spf daily and use really hydrating skin care. As far as makeup goes, don’t over powder! – 29-year-old makeup artist.
An appreciative Emily replied: “Thank you for the tips! I will take any I can get! I put on SPF every day no matter what! It’s sooo important!”
A further added: “You’re super gorgeous, it’s just your makeup style that is a little aging!”
In response, Emily commented: “Thank you so much!! That is too sweet of you! I had multiple people comment thinking I was well into my 40s! it was honestly comical to read.”
However, others reassured Emily that she didn’t look anywhere near the age of 47.
“You don’t look old and your makeup is gorg. People on this app are just jealous 13 year olds who don’t know what 28 looks like lol,” wrote one.
A second commented: “You look in your 20s, whoever said 47 just want to make you feel bad.”
A third joked: “Oh ok well I must look 97 then, you do not look 40 something.
Age doesn’t matter when you’re that pretty either way.”
