Makeovers for the mature

I continue to love makeovers. They cheer me up.

I love the transformations, and I particularly love the ones by “The Makeover Guy,” who deals with people of all ages but definitely seems to concentrate on women over 50.

I especially like the discussion here of the somewhat-grumpy “resting face” of this 75-year-old woman. This is one of the makeover videos where it’s hard to believe it’s the same person after the makeup and hair changes:

As a person with naturally curly/frizzy hair, I feel a certain kinship with this next lady, who is especially hair-challenged. But she seems to have made no effort at all to tame her mane prior to the makeover. Although I happen to really like gray hair on a lot of women, sometimes it’s not good on women with florid coloring such as hers, and so the decision to dye it here was probably for the best.

What a beauty she ends up being. A bit like a cross between Raquel Welch and Bette Midler:

    XY is good. This is all XX: faked, with dyes and creams and lotions and mascara and false eyelashes. If you want it, you got it, but don’t forget it ain’t free!

    I feel that I should reztrain from ‘makeover’ comments simply because I am a simpleton. 😉

    They both look so refreshed! I liked the gray curly hair, but she looks ravishing with auburn hair.

    Thousands of your readers love your curly hair.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
