“Oh thank God, finally, a line of makeup exclusively for women aged 60 and up!” – No one
Apparently, a new line of cosmetics is out created specifically for the aging woman. The makeup, called “The Fabulous Range,” features selections of of eye shadows, pencils, lipsticks, glosses, blushes and mascaras in neutral colors intended to flatter older skin. So it’s pretty much like buying a newspaper, changing the name, and re-selling it as “Specialized Birdcage Lining.” AMIRITE?!
I know plenty of older women who get by just fine using regular people makeup. Okay, so you only sell neutral colors. How innovative. What kind of old lady would wear garish makeup anyway?
Oh, right. Everyone say hello to fitness and makeup guru Andrea Warshaw-Wernick, the creator of this line. You know how they say “Never trust a skinny chef?” Please add “Never trust a Botox maniac with your makeup” to this list. Also, “Never trust a self-proclaimed health guru in their mid-60s.” I could go on?
Let me clarify. I have no problem with aging or old people. I heart old people. They’re very sweet people like you and I, they just walk a little slower and eat dinner a little earlier. However, I DO have a problem when people refuse to accept to age gracefully. Just…stop. You don’t need fancy products that claim to halt time. Remember Lady Gaga’s advice?
Put down the crazy product and look at these lovely women–they’re all over 60!
This sounds like…wait for it…A TOTAL WASTE OF MAKEUP!
