Act 2: Beauty’s Where You Find It – Enhance the Positive and Deflect the Negative in your 30′s & 40′s
Let’s face it – appearances are smoke and mirrors so make sure to stumble into kind lighting whenever possible. If you’re in your 30’s or 40’s, you’re sure to have developed a sense of who you are, what looks best on you and what makes you comfortable to walk out the door in style. The big picture is beauty, not fashion. Fashion comes and goes, but beauty is finding a look with the most flattering cut and color. You should also develop your signature look that transcends fashion. Art History teaches us that beauty transcends the trend.
From the Egyptians, to Louise Brooks (classic bob cut) in the roaring twenties to (“It” girl) Katie Holmes, there’s nothing chicer or defining than a slick, confident do.
Meryl Streep is another riveting actress who’s performance as Margaret Thatcher channels again through her hair, makeup, costume and endless talent. –Gad Cohen
