Best makeup for women 50+

We're suckers for any makeup that says naked, camera-ready, invisible, illuminating, firming or lifting on the label. The gap between our expectations (miracles) and reality (improvement) doesn't matter. So far only cosmetic surgery, laser resurfacing, fillers and Botox or, of course, Photoshop can produce a flawless wrinkle-free face. Each year and especially every fall we seek a new face buddy with high hopes. Here are 5 tips to getting it right:

Good move Michelle O! Instead of  buying a sports car or bungee-jumping at birthday 49, you freaked out and cut statement bangs. Well, it is a cheap, risk-free alternative. Bangs are the secret of the universe. Here's why: they divert attention away from a saggy jaw or stringy neck, they hide skimpy, over-plucked brows, they cover forehead frown lines and make us look happy, they disguise a thinning hairline, they dress up your face when you pull back your hair and add symmetry to your looks (yes, one side always ages saggier, more wrinkled, more sun-damaged than the other unfortunately) and they are sexy and youthful. Smart, like-minded celebs Goldie Hawn, 67 and Suzanne Somers, 66 have made bangs a lifetime signature.  Whether you chop or not, here are three more beauty band-aids:

We love comfort and so do plenty of our famous girlfriends like  Sharon Stone, Ellen DeGeneres, Goldie Hawn, Madonna, and Lauren Hutton (especially for off-duty hours).  They hang out in a combo of flats, sneakers, soft jeans, cargoes, slouchy sweaters, tanks and tees and so do we. Makeup is another story. We can't exactly say no to the de-aging and face boosting benefits cosmetics provide but hey, where's the comfort?  Those of us totally committed to the cozy concept can probably live without  killer heels and shapewear but no makeup? No way!  Some makeup brands have refocused on how products feel when applied in addition to the usual attention to application and performance. Consider comfort cosmetics like Uggs for your face.
