Makeup for older women is a hot topic for our community. Unlike previous generations of women, who were expected to dress a certain way and “age gracefully,” women our age are expressing themselves through stylish clothing and dazzling makeup.
What once-banned, now ubiquitous female summer poolside and seaside attire is celebrating a 70th birthday this month?
If you answered the bikini, you really are a dedicated follower of fashion.
A few weeks ago I wrote a light-hearted article offering tips to boomers on how to take selfies, seeing as it’s such a phenomenon. Granted, it’s a millennial phenom, which I don’t love all that much. But hey, times change and change is the only certain thing in life.
It’s been over 2 years since Ariane Poole and I started working together on a series of makeup tips for older women videos. In today’s video, we will show you how to draw attention to your beautiful eyes.
For most women, shopping is an inherited or possibly even genetic characteristic. We don’t need to take classes because most of us are born with a shopping degree. But we do need to follow certain guidelines if we are to be awarded a postgraduate degree.
Ariane Poole and I are both ignoring aging stereotypes and letting our hair grow for the summer. Who says older women can’t wear long hair! Not us!
Before my latest interview with Ariane, I reached out to the Sixty and Me community to ask them what questions they had about makeup for older women. One comment that came up repeatedly was “What is the best summer foundation for aging skin?”
Summer might just be the perfect season. The sun is shining, people are smiling and flowers are blooming. Everything seems to pull you outdoors. Enjoy the beauty of these precious months!
I absolutely love playing with homemade body scrubs. After all, the body scrubs that you can get in most stores are super expensive. In addition, many commercial body scrubs include ingredients that you might not even want on your skin!
So, over the last year or so, I’ve started to experiment with creating my own luxurious body scrubs from items in my kitchen. Today, I’d like to share my favorite coconut palm sugar, coconut oil and sandalwood essential oil body scrub.
Like many older women, I sometimes have trouble getting my makeup to play well with my glasses. In this video, I’d like to share a special product that I have found that really helps to make my eyes pop. I usually apply it in a special way, which I will get into in a second.
