While I usually don’t spend a lot of money on makeup , I’m willing to splurge on lipstick if it truly makes my face glow.
The tricky part, though, is finding those shades that do just that.
In her book, Beauty, boomer  makeup entrepreneur Bobbi Brown suggests:
“If I had to teach someone just one thing about lip color, it would be this: Find a lipstick that looks good on your face when you are wearing absolutely no makeup.”
Trying Bobbi’s approach is how I came up with my short list of all-time favorite lipsticks that seem to make every woman over 50 — no matter what her skin tone — look fresh, pretty and modern. Most of them can be worn every day without looking too “made up,” and all are in the universally flattering tones of “pinky-peachy.”

It’s a big world out there, with lots and lots of lipsticks to try. Have fun! And tell us about your new discoveries in the comments section below.
Until next time, remember this:
We can’t control getting older . . . but . . . we can control how we do it!
