It’s Here! Available for purchase now!
A funny thing happened on the way…
to the airport last Saturday when leaving NYC. Sitting next to me was the fabulous Sandy Linter! You’ve probably “met” Sandy through here before – she’s contributed to several posts on Fab Over 40 and she is Lancome’s “Beauty at Every Age Expert”.
Yes, I was shocked and thrilled and we chatted beauty and other things for about an hour or so. I know! How lucky am I?! AND, she showed me her new book that is coming out mid-March! “Makeup Wakeup; Revitalizing Your Look at Any Age” I loved it and can’t wait to get a copy in my hands permanently! This is the perfect book that pertains to women over 40 and our particular issues. It isn’t about making us look like something we’re not. No, it’s about making us look the best we can. She offers tips, looks, how-to, product suggestions – everything!
One of the first things I noticed about the book is the great photography. These women are not photoshopped to look glossed over and fake. Nope, they look REAL! I was so thrilled about that! You see their pores, their wrinkles, their beautiful skin and all – just like all of us over 40! It is exactly what we want – the truth about what a difference makeup can do for us, not a glossed over, smoothed out, fake looking version.
It is available by pre-order on Amazon. (click Amazon and it will take you to the page)
its great that you got to meet her. I’ll sure check out this book
You lucky woman!! I probably would have hyperventilated. I sent her a facebook message not long ago saying “Why don’t you put a book out for women over 40? There’s nothing on the market for US!” And…Voila! (I know she was already done with it by the time I asked the question!!)
Its driving me crazy. What is the name of the woman on the cover of the book?!
Kim Alexis! Doesn’t she look incredible!
I talked to her in the Fall of 2009 and she knew then she was doing a book and it would be out for Mother’s Day 2011. That’s how long and how much thought went into this great book! After my terrible flight to get to NY, it was fun to sit with her for an hour and after the flight chat while waiting for our luggage in MN.
I love Kim’s haircut…now if I could only find someone to duplicate that look on me!!! (do you have a list of favorite Minneapolis/St. Paul salons? I live in Rochester)
I’m so excited…can,t wait to read it…thanks for the heads up,Kari and glad your trip was fun.
I like some of the stylists at Spalon Montage. The guy I was seeing there recently left to move to NYC – he was doing hair for Armani runway. Holly at the Chanhassen salon is great too.
Hope Lancome will start making makeup without that sparkley glitter stuff. I don’t care what you call it it’s glitter and it looks dreadful as you get older! Settles into the crepeness on your eyes and lips and spotlights them! Might as well have a sign that says “look, I’m getting OLD!” Love Lancome but can’t wear most of their eye shadows or lipsticks…and REALLY WANT TO…
Lancome’s current collections actually have a fine sparkle, not the big frosty chunks of the 80s that made you look like a disco ball. Their products with shimmer now actually enhance your skin because they illuminate & give radiance, yet don’t settle in the lines. I’m a makeup artist over 40 & absolutely love their products with sparkle. Don’t be confused with the old frosts of bygone eras. So many over-40 women are afraid of sparkle, when it actually can make them look much younger & more vibrant, brightening what looks dull. Be open to trying their new shadows & you might be shocked at how great they look on you!
