Over 50’s Offer Over 50 Beauty Advice

This article from the New York Times focuses on three women Over 50 and their attitudes toward aging and the cosmetics industry.

Andrea Robinson, who has worked for several leading cosmetics companies as well as fashion magazines, says not enough attention is paid to the hormonal shifts that occur in women Over 50, and the effects that has on their skin. She’s written a book, Toss the Gloss –Beauty Tips, Tricks & Truths for Women 50+, that she hopes will “unconfuse” these women who’ve been dismissed by the cosmetics industry.

Bobbi Brown says there’s no such thing as an anti-aging cream that fixes wrinkles.  In her book, Bobbi Brown Living BeautyLiving Beauty, she suggests women use makeup to look “fresher.”

And Diane Keaton, well-known for embracing her looks at age 69, also has a book, Let's Just Say It Wasn't PrettyLet’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty.  It’s got less beauty advice than the others, but much more dish on Woody and Warren.
