Greyed purples, like lilac and lavender, enhance the coolness of silver/grey hair, and work for any-colour eyes, especially gorgeous with browns. Add a muted rose shade to the lips, with subtle pink cheeks and some bronzer, and you have soft but healthy, feminine look. Suzanne - for her brother's wedding in Papamoa, 30-03-13.
Grey hair doesn't mean it's over. Yasmina Rossi is proof. She's a professional model, discovered after her hair went grey! But she also has an amazing-looking body, bone structure etc, and could pass for much younger (especially in this photo)! So if you're grey, what else do you have going on? Do you have any admirable assetts you can play up, like Yasmina?
Ombre hair is trendy right now - this is where the hair changes from light to dark along its length, like a gradient of colour. Usually achieved with hair dyes, this woman is rocking the look naturally and being accidentally trendy! Isn't it cool when that happens to you?! Original pinner: "Aging gracefully isn't about being older and looking old...for me, it's about accepting one's self, grey or not. This young woman obviously is comfortable in her own skin. Yeah for her. She's beautiful."
"Our culture is fearful of aging," said Franklin, "and especially aging women. I say, 'Stop apologizing for getting older. Embrace it.' I want young women to see that beauty ages beautifully and there is no need to feel that getting older is something that has to be medicated, managed with surgery or be obsessed about." Age is to be respected, not ridiculed. As you grow older, remember age is what gives antiques their value. Be proud if you've been around a long time. ;-) - Lillybeth
Carmen Dell’Orefice (Born June 3, 1931) is 80 years old right now. She is the oldest model in the world modeling for the last 66 years, placing herself in the Guinness Book of World Records! Yes this photo is probably air-brushed to heck but isn't she stunning!!? I'm always talking about age-appropriate makeup over on my facebook page. Come join the discussion.
