Toss That Gloss! ~

I read a GREAT book last month, the best I’ve read in awhile, on the subject of makeup for women over fifty.



“Toss the Gloss, Beauty Tips, Tricks and Truths For Women 50+”, by Andrea Q. Robinson is jammed packed with great beauty advice.

Who knew that over age fifty, you should only wear matte lipstick, blotted within an inch of its life? (Goopy gloss gets  in the fine lip lines and bleeds all the way up, whereas matte stays put, if blotted!)

Also included are great recommendations for tried and true products at all price points, for mature women.

I’ve learned so much from this book, especially as it relates to women 50 +.  There is a fine line between being put together, looking glowing and pretty, and looking like you just stepped out of a fun house.  At our age, we need to play up certain things and totally play down others. Great advice for how to apply false eyelashes, (a must try if your eyelashes are thinning,) how to achieve the most natural looking spray tan and so much more.

The author, who spent forty years at Estee Lauder, Tom Ford, Vogue, Mademoiselle, etc, knows her stuff.

If you believe fifty really is the new forty, check this book out and TOSS THAT GLOSS!
