In these roles she interviewed and photographed hundreds of women who changed forever the way women 40+ dress, shop, and think about clothes. The list includes trend-setting designers, top news achors, iconic models, and stylish celebs, among them Norma Kamali, Diane Von Furstenberg, Lauren Hutton, Christie Brinkley, Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, and Ann Curry.

Praise for author’s previous book, The Makeup Wakeup:
"Lois and Sandy will get you out of your beauty rut, boost your confidence, and show you that age is just a number."
In a youth-obsessed culture, aging can be difficult. But celebrity makeup artists Johnson and Linter provide an age-defying beauty guide that enables women to minimize flaws and maximize their beauty. Unlike most beauty books, this resource focuses on the concerns of women entering middle age and beyond, such as sun damage, hormonal acne, sagging skin, fine lines, and thinning hair. Readers are given step-by-step makeup techniques and advice on how to deal with the inevitable changes and look their best. Celebrities and models also speak candidly about their beauty secrets and regimes. Included are color photos of actress Sigourney Weaver, singer Debbie Harry, and models Veronica Webb, Carol Alt, and Cheryl Tiegs, among others. The shots of models with and without makeup illustrate the differences correct techniques can make. For those considering cosmetic procedures, a team of medical experts discuss pros, cons, and alternatives.
Verdict: This book takes the fear out of getting older. The authors thoroughly cover what women can do to look good as they age. A highly recommended reference readers will turn to time and again.”
