Biography

I discovered the wonders of the makeup counter as a teenager working in a drugstore. Over the years, my beauty regimen has ranged from tentative experimentation, to fashion statement, to simply bringing out the best in who I am. I have come to believe that beauty is personal, and we don't have to live it the way others define it. As a writer who has covered the beauty industry since 2001, and a woman over 50, I believe there has never been a better time to define beauty for myself and live beautifully after 50.
