I suppose you could get a little hair dye and add a little grey to look older, or maybe do like the girls did when I was a teen and "stuff", but mostly just wait 2 years, and you will be 16 and not have to worry about it. besides, 14 and 16 dont really look all that different

Oh my god don't smoke! It makes you look older until you get to like 20, and then you start looking a lot older than you want to, and by then you're addicted. Makeup makes you look older. Also, you can show maturity simply in how you carry yourself. Get comfortable with your surroundings. People who are really mature have acheived that because they don't worry about how/if people are looking at them. If you look relaxed and comfortable (and if you actually relax), it shows in your shoulders, and the way you smile, and how you stand. That type of confidence alone will make you look older. Also, padded bras are always good.
Don't worry too much though! Roping in the guys is something that will happen no matter what, so don't worry about attracting people too quickly. One day, you will look back on being 14 and wish you'd been 14 rather than been in denial about your age and body. If you get comfortable with who you are now, it will serve you better in the long run.

basically what you need is a push up bra.... that will give you some cleavage. Also observe what older and more sophisticated women wear and try to go for their style. Another good thing is to die your hair as it keeps it healthy looking and don't powder yourself in make-up as this shows you are trying to hard.
