“You hear it all the time, as you age, you should wear less makeup. I disagree. You should wear more color! Women need color on their lips, eyes and faces. They want color in their lives!
“The saddest thing I hear is, ‘I’ve worn the same lipstick for 20 years.’ Would you wear the same shoes for 20years? Well, live a little, have fun and branch out to a different world of wonderful colors."
“Make-up should be fun, not a chore. Have fun with make-up, find your look, and use it. There’s really not a right or wrong, it’s what you feel comfortable with.”
