Sandy Linter: Color Is A Wonderful Thing Fabulous Over Forty - Where Beauty Is Ageless: "I asked Sandy what advice she had for women over 40. She said “I could tell you so much, I have so much advice.” My first thought was - great! A book by Sandy Linter for women over 40? Wouldn’t that be fabulous! It would surely be a best seller.
Her biggest piece of advice was women over 40 need to wear color! Stop being afraid of color and then give up and do nothing. Sandy said when she has appointments at her studio for makeup lessons she always can tell who it is that is waiting to see her, they have given up on their makeup.
We talked a bit about that – why do we tend to give up or keep everything neutral? Is it our lack of time? Is it because we’ve become overwhelmed and give up? Is it because we’re afraid we’re going to look like we’re trying too hard to be young and come out “clown-like” so we just do nothing? Or is it because we’re constantly being told that after a certain age you shouldn’t wear certain colors? I truly believe any one of those questions could be the excuse someone would say, and probably about 10 more added to it.
She said the key to wearing color is to blend, blend, blend. It is so important not to leave the makeup on your face harsh looking. Maybe that’s where women are getting the bad rap for wearing color – they aren’t blending enough."
