Honestly, is that not a title that pretty much sums it up?
- Cut Some bangs.
- Lighten your hair.
- Tame those brows. (And stop over-plucking. I beg you.)
- Chic Up your eyewear
- Lose the heavy liner. (The thinner line is the up-to-date line.)
- Unmask your foundation.
- Manage your wrinkles.
- Put on pink lipstick. (Sounds familiar.)
- Whiten your teeth.
- Wear your own nails.
- Unmatch your wardrobe.
- Shorten your skirts (To just above matronly.)
- Slip into the perfect pair of jeans. (Gap Long and Leans per me and William Sledd.)
- Follow the three-bling rule when dressing for evening. (Super fun. The book explains.)
- Learn to love shapewear. (Oy vey.)
- Show some leg.
- Step into sexy heels.
And that's just the beginning. There is, literally, something of interest to be found on every page--even if you're fairly hip yourself, you'll find tons of additional helpful tid-bits.
The book differentiates between the "OL" old lady and "Y&H" the young and hip way. Charla makes a pretty good case for cream blush, for instance, and gives us the new SIX step method of applying foundation:
- Exfoliate (with a gentle mini-peel.)
- Restore (with a serum). I'm recommending mine on Tuesday--stay tuned.
- Moisturize (of course!)
- Prime. (Gee. Where have we heard that before?)
- Apply foundation.
