And now it's time for a little rant, if you will allow me.....Lately, I've been googling "beauty tips for women over 50" just to see if I've been missing anything. Amusingly and frustratingly, what I've come to realize is that a LOT of these articles seem to be written by "bloggers" who haven't even REACHED the age of 50! What the hell!?

Today I read a column filled with all sorts of ridiculous "beauty tips" and the top of my head almost blew off. One of the lists boldly stated "Do not wear eyeshadow if you're over 50"; "Don't wear bright colored lipstick"; "Don't wear your hair below your shoulders" and so much more! Omg, it was laughable. These women don't even know how to deal with skin on women my age. My face cries out for cosmetics, eye shadow and any other external help I can provide it with.

And, at this point in your life, let me remind you that this is your time to shine! You know yourself inside and out so make a bold statement! Wear your hair shockingly short or any damn way you please. If you want to draw a lipline like Betty Boop, I say just do it! The rules are that there ARE NO RULES! My favorite octogenarian style icon, Iris Apfel, wisely said, "When you don't dress like everyone else, you don't have to think like everyone else."

Now, I'm not saying to load your face up with products like you're a streetwalker but I think by the time you're 50 and over, you pretty well have nailed down what you need and what you should avoid.

I appreciate the fact that everyone is entitled to their own opinions but please, ladies, if you're not age appropriate for the article you're supposed to be an expert on, leave it alone.

And even though there are NO rules, here's some I follow for my own style:

1) Unless you have tons of money, trends aren't for you. Buy something chic that is timeless and then dress it up with accessories.

2) Know the makeup colors that work best for your skin tone.

3) Beauty products don't have to be expensive to be good.

5) Like your mother always said, good shoes and a handbag can take you far.

6) Dress for yourself and no one else. Ever.

7) Have a great full length mirror and a makeup mirror that is not TOO magnified. Nobody looks at you that closely! I use a 3X magnification but they're hard to find.

8) Line the inside of your upper eyelid. It will double the look of your lashes. And always use an eyelash curler for the same reason.

9) If you have undereye circles like mine, coverup is a must--but make sure it's only one shade lighter than your makeup/skin tone.

10) Nothing beats exercise and a good diet (sadly) to make you feel happy and healthy. And if you can only do one exercise, use weights.

11) Don't use a lot of different products on your skin. Personally, I think it wears it out. I use Nivea as a moisturizer and soap to wash my face--horror of horrors!

12) A little sun never hurt anyone.

13) It's true what they say about genetics--learn to love and accept what you have.
