I am 47 (am told I look younger) and I love make up and have a huge amount of it. There is a school of thought which suggests that because I am knocking on a bit I should stick to subtle make up, mainly nudes. I love colours and think that as long as I don;t go over the top, why should I not wear say, a colourful liner or a bright pink lipstick (not both together!) I would be interested to know what others think. I think you are as old as you feel and that as long as I don;t look like mutton dressed as lamb you should go for it.
Wear it, wear it, wear itttttt.
I say wear it! Age should not determine you trying new things.

thanks girls. You think how I think but when people say stuff to you, you do start to wonder if you are making a mistake.
Aww Renni, people will always have something to say. I have worn very colorful looks some people looked at me like WTH..others saw it as beautiful..to each their own. Do you Sweety, this is beautiful art. :)

Renni...Screw what society says!!! I say if you like it, rock it!!! I'm 2 years shy of turning the big 4-0 and I'm still gonna rock my mini skirts even though society says its wrong. I worked too dang hard on this body for some jealous nut to tell me what I should and shouldn't wear. If they despise your hot pink lips tell 'em they can turn away and look elsewhere.lol
there is nothing wrong with color when stragicily placed.
Renni, wear whatever you want(make up, clothes etc), why should you care what a bunch of strangers might say to you? Their opinion would not matter anyways, the only opinion that matters is yours. YOU do what you feel comfortable with!
