I wholeheartedly believe that beauty knows no age, but I’m also pragmatic and understand that the clothes and make-up and overall beauty routine that worked for me back when I was struggling through Algebra II are not great choices for me as I hit my mid-30s. And that’s not entirely because trends have changed — it’s because I’ve changed.
But it’s not like I’m going to start wearing mom jeans, sporting a sensible haircut and cutting down to just one coat of mascara any time soon. I have a lot of friends ranging in age from their mid-20s to their 50s who feel the same way — we’re just as bad-ass at our current ages as we were 10, 20, or 30 years ago (if not more so), and we want to look as fantastic as we feel.
But, you know, without looking like we’re trying to be 17 again. Because HAHAHAHA no thank you.
So, I rounded up a few experts to get tips on style, make-up, skin care, and undergarments for women of any and all ages. I know I learned a few things, and I hope some of these suggestions are just what you needed to hear in order to properly strut your stuff.
And, let’s be clear — if you’re rocking the look you’ve currently got going on and you don’t think you need to change a thing, then don’t. More important than following any guidelines or rules is feeling awesome about yourself, and if you’re already there, maybe you should let us know your tips! Really, that’s what this whole Fit Bottomed at Any Age Week thing is all about!
