Welcome to the "Get The Look" section. Here we feature real women with normal lives. The media constantly subjects us to images of celebrities, pop stars, film stars and it girls .Magazines encourage women to "Get the Look".
The "Feel Good After Fifty" website aims to present a more realistic approach to the concept of "look getting". The celebrities pictured in magazines, have often had, beauty treatments to prepare and plump up their skins, stylists to select their clothes, top designers lending the clothes for the fashion shoot and after all that expert help, a professional photographer and some airbrushing before going into print. How on earth could any normal woman from "real life" be possibly expected to "get this look" ?
This section aims to introduce ladies with natural grace and style, who have prepared themselves for a few photos and been kind enough to invite us into their private wardrobes and share their own beauty, fashion and tips for life with us.
It will provide you will simple solutions to looking amazing and illustrate how choosing items of clothing carefully will give you the scope to dress well, and change your image with ease.
A short interview is published after each feature.
Lisa is a lady who has natural elegance, grace, style and class. She looks impeccable whilst managing a busy lifestyle. Bringing up four children, running a house and working is no easy feat but Lisa manages to look stylish, fresh and beautiful . In this feature we illustrate how a variety of looks can be achieved with a small number of expertly selected clothes. Lisa will be passing on her personal style tips along the way.
Lisa has done her own make up and has a very natural look.
She applied a little fake tan as a base then waited 20 minutes for it to develop. This gives her complexion a healthy glow and camouflages minor imperfections. She has then used a little moisturiser. Some blusher has been brushed on in a soft pink tone. Black eye-liner has been carefully drawn on to the upper eye lid. Two coats of matt black mascara and a little lip gloss in candy pink finish off the look beautifully.
Note that on Lisa's skin tones with the fake tan base she has applied, neither foundation or concealer have been needed!
