Marla Wynne, one of HSN’s fashion stars, has designed a jewelry collection as distinctive, versatile, and effortless to wear as her signature apparel.

Taking her inspiration from art, nature and the diverse architecture she studies while traveling the globe, Marla loves to create modern, tactile pieces. “I pay great attention to how a piece feels on the body,” says the woman who used her passion, drive, and a new sewing machine to launch a fashion career when she became an out-of-work Hollywood producer over a decade ago.

Marla’s new line of bracelets, necklaces (many doubling as belts) and rings is primarily made in resin and brushed metal in gold and silver tones. “I carefully select materials to achieve bold yet light and modern pieces,” she explains. “I don’t want to feel my jewelry, I want to see my jewelry. Jewelry should elevate your wardrobe, add a little drama to your look, and  make a personal statement. It’s  a powerful, instant way to give a woman striking style.”

Embodying the extraordinary quality and value for which the her brand is known, Marla’s jewelry evokes a timeless and modern sensibility and easily can be mixed with any woman’s look.

Marla has graciously offered to gift one lucky woman with a selection of her singular jewelry valued at $400 (including tax and shipping). Simply fill out the form below to be entered to win.

Just because you’ll be going to a string of glittery holiday parties doesn’t mean your makeup should be glittery, too.

That look may be cute on a 20-something, but about the only thing it will do for a FOFace is make it look like a clown. Take it from Tricia Cusden, who knows a thing or two about making up older faces, at holiday time and throughout the year.  Not only is this fab-looking Englishwoman over 50; she created a cosmetics collection precisely formulated to benefit the older face, after endlessly searching the stores for suitable colors, textures and consistencies.
Makeup IS NOT created for aging skin that’s dry, uneven, mottled, and sagging. It’s developed for the fully hydrated, toned and taut skin of 20 to 40 year olds. So, when we apply the makeup designed for younger women, it typically cakes up in our fine lines, creases and wrinkles; dries out our skin even more, and the colors are either too bright or too dull.

Tricia’s line, Look Fabulous Forever, literally is changing the faces of women who apply it, and disrupting the beauty industry in the UK.

Women started flocking to Tricia’s brilliant online beauty tutorials from the moment she introduced her collection four years ago. These video tutorials now have millions of views.  And, even though Tricia and her team are just starting to promote LFF to American women, we already represent 20 percent of her business!

I admire Tricia for doing what a multi-billion dollar beauty industry would never dream of doing: Celebrate older women with products made just for us! You do realize that older woman don’t buy makeup, don’t you?’ a beauty insider told me in 2013, before I launched Look Fabulous Forever,” Tricia remembered “How wrong are you, I thought. They do buy makeup, but they get frustrated when they use it, throw it in a drawer and think they’ve wasted more money.

“Everything tends to fade on our face when we lose melanin in the skin,” Tricia explained. “Our skin color fades. Our cheeks and lips get paler. Our eyes have less definition. And, many women lose their eyebrows. Makeup can make a massive difference, because you can get  back color, definition, shape, light, and life in 15 minutes,” Tricia added. “The face goes from looking quite dull and featureless to looking really beautiful.”

We asked Tricia to give FabOverFifty women
her top tips for applying party makeup.

Braided in the fifties. Teased through the sixties. Straightened in the seventies. Curly through the eighties and nineties. And, pretty much diminishing after that! My hair has been right there with me, through thick and THIN! But, it looked pretty much like it was going to leave me permanently, and I’d never have a good hair day ever again.

I tried one volumizing product after another, and even had an expensive hair piece made to give me fullness up top. The products just weighed down my already pancake-like style (if you could even call it a style), and it became a nuisance to maintain the piece.

Now, a revolutionary Hair Volumizing System called VOLAIRE has come into my life, and my tresses (and I) are doing a happy dance.

So are millions of women, including actress Kristin Davis. “My hair was full when I was young, then one day I went to put it in a ponytail and it wasn’t there. It had become thinner, drier and damaged,” the 51-year-old actress remembered.

Kristin became an instant Volaire fan the first time she tried it, after hearing a stylist rave about how well it worked on his clients’ hair. “VOLAIRE makes my hair move with natural, beautiful, weightless volume once again! It looks as good as it did when I played Charlotte on Sex And The City,” she said.  Kristin is so excited by the results, she’s become the VOLAIRE brand ambassador.

Unlike all those traditional products that coat and may weigh down the hair, the exclusive VOLAIRE’S exclusive AIRWEIGHT TECHNOLOGY combines nourishing ingredients with unique microspheres to infuse lift and volume to thinning and lifeless hair. These positively charged microspheres literally attach to each negatively charged hair shaft to create more space between individual strands for weightless volume.  It’s not magic.  It’s science. And, it works!

“VOLAIRE approaches hair volume in a totally different way,” explained Carey Grange, president of Junee Brands, whose mission is to discover beauty and personal care products that provide transformational benefits for women. “Typical volumizers actually coat the hair strands to make them thicker. Besides weighing down hair, they often make it look and feel dirtier,” Carey added. Hair becomes even heavier when we use additional styling products like gels and mousses.  The result is hair that’s gunked up with product.

On my 36th birthday last week, I received a gift in the cutest cardboard box I’ve ever seen, with adorably sketched beauty products on the outside. From the looks of it, I just knew something great would be inside. I wasn’t wrong!  

A gift from my mom, this was my first month’s delivery from a beauty subscription service called Bless Box.  

When I opened the package, the contents kept spilling out since it was jam-packed with goodies. Each month’s Bless Box has a theme, and this month’s is Shades of Fall. It included five amazing Maybelline mini eyeshadow palettes, each one with six rich autumnal shades. Some are even shiny and sparkly, just in time for the holidays. A mascara promises to make my eyelashes bigger and bolder; a new Essie product will strengthen and color my nails, and a long-last “matte ink” will make my lips irresistible. There’s also a cute eye mask for my beauty sleep; a super hydrating mask; warming mineral bath, blush papers and more!

This amazing gift made me curious about its creator, so I did a little investigating and found out that Bless Box was launched by beautiful and talented Sazan Hendrix, a popular fashion and beauty blogger. When Sazan decided to make a surprise appearance at the wedding of one her big fans, she presented the bride with a box filled with an assortment of her favorite products. The reaction was overwhelming, not just from the bride, but from many of the guests, who oohed and aahed over all the gifts inside.

This gave Sazan the idea to launch her Bless Box service, so women across the country could enjoy their gifts as much as the bride loved hers. Sazan calls each package a “lifestyle box” because it features health and beauty, fashion and home products that she’s hand picked. “I wanted a platform where I could get my favorite products into the hands of my subscribers, and that’s when Bless Box started to come to life,” Sazan said.  “I curate it all. I won’t put anything in the box I wouldn’t use myself, from high-end products to handmade goods.”

Count Your Blessings

The cool thing about the Bless Box is you can order one box, or sign up for a three-month, six-month or an annual subscription. A single box is only $29.99, but the products are worth about $150. That’s a pretty great deal.  What’s more, my mom managed to get the FOF community 30% off your orders. Use code FAB30 when you check out. I promise this will be one of the best gifts you can give to the favorite ladies in your life (of any age) at holiday time, for a special occasion, or just because!

Use code FAB30 when you check out for 30% off!

If I gathered all the makeup I’ve bought over the decades, it would resemble a small mountain. And, to think of the money I wasted on foundations, lipsticks, eye shadows and blushes that I tossed out because I discovered they weren’t the right colors, textures or consistencies after using them a few times.

Makeup IS NOT created for aging skin that’s dry, uneven, mottled, and sagging. It’s developed for the fully hydrated, toned and taut skin of 20 to 40 year olds. So, when I applied the makeup designed for younger women, it caked up in my fine lines, creases and wrinkles; dried out my skin even more, and the colors were either too bright or too dull.

Happily, Tricia Cusden was thinking much the same thing across the pond in England, and she set out to create a cosmetics collection precisely formulated to benefit the older face.

Her line, Look Fabulous Forever, literally is changing the faces of women who apply it, and disrupting the beauty industry in the UK. Women started flocking to Tricia’s brilliant online beauty tutorials from the moment she introduced her collection four years ago. These video tutorials now have millions of views.  And, even though Tricia and her team are just starting to promote LFF to American women, we already represent 20 percent of her business!

MakeUp for Older Women: Define Your Eyes and Lips Over 60 - YouTube


I admire Tricia for doing what a multi-billion dollar beauty industry would never dream of doing: Celebrate older women with products made just for us! “You do realize that older woman don’t buy makeup, don’t you?’ a beauty insider told me in 2013, before I launched Look Fabulous Forever,” Tricia remembered “How wrong are you, I thought. They do buy makeup, but they get frustrated when they use it, throw it in a drawer and think they’ve wasted more money.

“Everything tends to fade on our face when we lose melanin in the skin,” Tricia explained. “Our skin color fades.  Our cheeks and lips get paler. Our eyes have less definition. And, many women lose their eyebrows. Makeup can make a massive difference, because you can get  back color, definition, shape, light, and life in 15 minutes,” Tricia added. “The face goes from looking quite dull and featureless to looking really beautiful.”

I’ve tried nine products from the dozens in the LFF collection, including face, eye and lip primers, which prepare my skin for foundation, lipstick and shadow by filling in open pores and fine lines, and make my makeup look fresher and last longer.

Lovely, light, and smooth, Smooth Like Silk Face Prime goes on easily with my fingertips and feels like satin on my face. Completely colorless.

Lightweight, fresh and creamy, with a dewy feel, Continuous Cover Foundation provides excellent coverage. Evens out my skin tone and gives my face warmth and depth, without looking heavy. Doesn’t look or feel oily.

Creamy, with a dense pigment that easily covers age spots, discoloration around my eyes, and blemishes. Cover to Cover Conceal beautifully covered a red mark from my glasses across the bridge of my nose.

A skin-colored, creamy liquid that eliminates discoloration and acts a smooth base for eye color. Fabulous Eye Prime kept my eye makeup from wandering into lines on my eyelids, and helped it to look fresh all day.

No Shimmer Eye Shade is a matte powder without any glitter, since glittery isn’t a flattering look for older eyes, especially if they’re “hooded” by dropping skin on the lids.  I used Cream on the entire lid, and Taupe in the eye sockets.

My eyelashes have become sparser and wispier, so volumizing mascara tends to make them look and feel harder. Fabulous Lash Mascara defines and darkens my lashes, while leaving them soft and pliable.

Fabulous Blush feels like cream when I rub my fingertips over it, but goes onto my cheekbones as smoothly as powder. I’m using Peach Cream, which enhances my cheek color without making me look like a clown. Doesn’t stick in the lines on my face.

Fabulous Lip Prime seals the edges of my lips so the lip color doesn’t “bleed” into the fine lines around my mouth. Helps me get a nice sharp line around the edges of my lips when I apply the lip color.

My lips are thinner and less lip-smacking than they used to be, but Fabulous Lip Colour makes my lips look more attractive. I love the combination of Foxy Lady and Soft Caramel. Not too dark. Not too light.

Excludes P&P, collections, gift collections, gift vouchers and samples. Cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. Valid for new customers only, through
Sunday, November 5, 2017.

OMG! I swear I have a bald spot, I thought, as I was drying my hair a few years ago.

Yep, that’s just what it was, I learned, after researching menopause and hair loss. Four out of 10 women have thinning hair that comes with hormonal changes as we age. The muffin top, jiggling underarms and jowls arrived first. And then, this!

Since that unsettling realization, I’ve tried countless volumizing products, and even had a hair piece made to give me fullness. The products further weighed down my already flat hair, and the hair piece became a pain-in-the-neck to maintain.

At long last, a revolutionary Hair Volumizing System called VOLAIRE is taking the haircare market by storm, and becoming a godsend to millions of women, including actress Kristin Davis. “My hair was full when I was young, then one day I went to put it in a ponytail and it wasn’t there. It had become thinner, drier and damaged,” the 51-year-old actress remembered.

Kristin tried the VOLAIRE system when a stylist recommended it, and became an instant fan. “VOLAIRE makes my hair move with natural, beautiful, weightless volume once again! It looks as good as it did when I played Charlotte on Sex And The City,” she said.  Kristin is so excited by the results, she’s become the VOLAIRE brand ambassador.

Anyone who follows FabOverFifty knows I’ve been delighted how the JeNu Ultrasonic Infuser System continually maximizes the absorption of my skin care products (by an average of 6 times, as a matter of fact), and visibly reduces my wrinkles and lines!

Today, spas, estheticians and dermatologists are fans of JeNu, and so are Vogue and Forbes editors. This is one of the most remarkable little beauty devices ever created.

Now, JeNu has decided to take a dramatic step and lower the price of its JeNu Plus by 71 percent, to only $99. By the way, you’ll also get a six-month supply of Microsphere Infuser Gel, which helps the ultrasonic waves do their thing.

There’s one hitch: This $99 offer, valued at $337, is good for only 100 women from the FabOverFifty community.

If foundation, blush, eyeshadow and lipstick are supposed to perk up our faces and make us ‘prettier,’ why do most of the products we use as we age inevitably disappoint us?  

Foundation sinks into our wrinkles and pores, and doesn’t balance our skin tone; lipstick “bleeds” all around our lips; eyeshadow that looked so lovely in the case cakes up on our lids, and blush makes us look a bit like a clown.  Even when we manage to find a product we like, our face never stays fresh-looking throughout the day or evening.

Anti-aging creams, serums, and lotions may be all the rage in skin care these days, but what’s up with the trillions of color products out there? What’s happening is that these products–from the inexpensive stuff at the corner drugstore to the ridiculously expensive cosmetics in specialty and department stores–simply aren’t formulated for older skin. Older, as in drier, less elastic, more wrinkled, lined and uneven skin!  Changes in the skin invariably affect all of us, and the cosmetics brands we used in our 30s and 40s just can’t compensate for them.

We may live in a youth-obsessed world, but Tricia Cusden, a 60-something British woman living in London, was determined to create a cosmetics collection specifically formulated to bring benefits to the older face. And, she did! Called Look Fabulous Forever, it’s literally changing the faces of women who apply it, and disrupting the beauty industry across the pond. Women started flocking to Tricia’s brilliant online beauty tutorials from the moment she introduced her line in 2013. They now have millions of views.  And, even though she hasn’t actively promoted LFF to American women, we represent 20 percent of her business!

“I like the fact that we’re disruptive within the beauty industry. We sit on a pro-age, not an anti-age, platform. Everything we say within the brand is all about fabulousness, not about youth,” Tricia told me. “We’re not saying that The Holy Grail of aging is to look 10 or 20 years younger. We’re saying let’s have a look at an older face and say this is a nice face even though it’s got a few wrinkles and a few crow’s feet. Let’s reframe our experience of what it means to age.  Let’s say this is actually the best time of life, and let’s start looking forward to it, rather than dreading it,” Tricia added, in her disarming accent.

I adore and admire Tricia for doing what a multi-billion dollar beauty industry would never dream of doing: Celebrate older women with products made just for us! “You do realize that older woman don’t buy makeup, don’t you?’ a beauty insider told me in 2013, before I launched Look Fabulous Forever,” Tricia remembered “How wrong are you, I thought. They do buy makeup, but they get frustrated when they use it, throw it in a drawer and think they’ve wasted more money.”

Tricia was so determined to make her dream a reality that she up and left her successful, 25-year-career as a management training consultant for blue chip companies. “Look Fabulous Forever was born, really, out of my frustration and difficulty finding products that would work for me, post menopause, when everything on my face changed. My skin changed. The shape of my face changed. My eyes changed. My lips changed.

“Everything tends to fade on our face when we lose melanin in the skin.  Our skin color fades. We get paler cheeks and paler lips.  Our eyes are less defined than they used to be. And, many women no longer have eyebrows. Makeup can make a massive difference, because in 10 or 15 minutes you can get all of that back,” Tricia said.. “ You put back color, definition, shape, light, and life. Suddenly, the face goes from looking quite dull and featureless to looking really beautiful. That’s what I find exciting. And older women need this more than younger women.  But the makeup created for much younger skin simply didn’t work on me anymore. I approached the business from a customer’s point of view, not from a chemist’s perspective.”

Tricia still needed a chemist to develop cosmetics that would suit older skin. “Older skin is like blotting paper; it’s very absorbent, it’s a bit bumpy, and you can’t get a nice sharp line on it because it goes fuzzy at the edges of the lips and eyelids,” she explained. So, Tricia literally Googled cosmetics manufacturers, and found the name of a man from a small, rural area called Suffolk, which happened to be where she grew up.  “This is going to sound completely mad, but I think that’s one of the reasons the business has been so successful,” Tricia said.  “Even before I met him I thought he was bound to be a good guy.”

On her way to meet the chemist, Tricia worried he’d say her idea is ridiculous, especially because she didn’t have much money to spend on the business. Instead, he told her, “this is the most brilliant idea!” They’ve had a great relationship since that first meeting. “He’s still our main supplier,” Tricia said.

Tricia sent the chemist the cosmetics she liked, explaining why they worked on her face, and he’d create product samples for her. “I started testing them on myself, on friends and on any face that would float into the room.  “When we launched I believed we had a line that would stand up to the scrutiny of our customers, and it did. Women who bought our new Look Fabulous Forever cosmetics told us, ‘Yes, this stuff really works!’”

The dozens of products in the LFF collection include distinct eye, lip and face primers, which prepare your skin for foundation, lipstick and shadow by filling in open pores and fine lines, and make your makeup look fresher and last longer. “Our Fabulous Prime is lovely, smooth and silky, and feels like satin on your face,” Tricia emphasized.

“Our Fabulous Base is light, fresh and creamy, with a dewy feel, but provides a good level of coverage. It evens out your skin tone and gives your face warmth and depth to achieve a flawless finish,” she said. “Most older women want to unify their skin tone but they don’t want something that looks heavy and caked on, as though they’re wearing a mask. The formulation has to feel lightweight on the skin and comfortable.”

Tricia has “bad acne rosacea,” and wakes up with red patches and blemishes around her nose, and spots on her chin. “I wanted a foundation that would cover that stuff but still make me look like I have skin. LFF makeup doesn’t come into the room five minutes before I do. We have the most beautiful base, which works brilliantly, and we sell a lot of it.”  Tricia applies her makeup only once a day–around 8 a.m.–and reports that “it amazingly still looks good” before she goes to bed. “If I go out for an evening function, I never refresh my makeup, apart from my lips,” she said.

The LFF cream-to-powder blush “goes on smoothly because it’s creamy, but can be blended with a brush to give you a really pretty finished effect,” Tricia added. “While powder blushers tend to stick in every wrinkle, ours doesn’t.

“You can buy LFF confident and assured that every single product has been formulated to suit your older skin. You’ll be putting them on your face and you’ll say ‘Wow, I really do look fabulous!’”

“My original idea was to personally sell the line at makeup parties,” Tricia explained, “but within four or five months I didn’t need to go out and sell directly at all.  Everything was selling online. We were getting orders from Hawaii, Saudi Arabia, Alaska, all over Europe, Australia, the UK.” Tricia claimed her success was completely serendipitous. “We’d produced a couple of fairly professional videos showing my makeup being applied on the real faces of two of my oldest friends. We put the videos on YouTube, and soon they were getting thousands of views.  

Customers can watch over 40 clear and concise videos today, all featuring before & after photos. “A makeup artist applies the makeup, and I do an introduction and voiceover which explains how to apply the makeup to get the effect you want,” Tricia said. “Or I show exactly what’s happening to my face directly in front of the laptop screen, which acts like a mirror.” Define Your Eyes and Lips Over 60’ is the most popular video, with almost two million views.

Although it might seem counterintuitive to buy makeup online–because you want to see and try it–Tricia and her team offer a number of ways to make the process easy, so you can feel confident you’re choosing the best products and shades for your distinct face.

MakeUp for Older Women: Define Your Eyes and Lips Over 60 - YouTube

1. A tip section on the website helps you determine whether you should choose warm or cool colors for your blush, lipstick or shadow, based on the colors of your hair, eyes and skin tone.  

2. You also can look through the gallery of real women photos to see the women who look closest to you, and exactly what products were used to create their makeup effects. “We only use models in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond,” Tricia emphasized.

“If your selection isn’t/wasn’t what you were expecting, you can pop the products back in the envelope, and we’ll refund your money or replace them with other products, Tricia said.

“Take account of the changes in your face and don’t carry on doing what you’ve always done with your makeup. It will look dated quite quickly. Older women, for example, look great if they’ve got a good lip color on, especially if they’ve got white hair like mine,” Tricia advised. “But many women say they couldn’t possibly wear a bright color on their lips!  They start putting on makeup at a certain age and get wedded to a certain look. You need to start reappraising everything when you’re older. You need to honestly look at yourself in the mirror and say,  ‘What can I do to look my absolute best?’”

Tricia’s written a book, Living The Life More Fabulous, which will be published in February. It encompasses makeup, hair and style, but she also talks about confidence and risk taking, and about health, exercise and nutrition. “This is our third act, and the best act of our lives,” she said.

“I got my first personal trainer at the age of 69. I absolutely hated exercise, but my body is responding beautifully to it, and I’m feeling stronger and better. My book makes the point that it’s never too late to start a business, to start a fitness campaign, to even start applying makeup differently. We can as a generation shake up this whole idea of older age being a problem, a drain of resources, and something we should do everything in our power to prevent. That’s absolutely stupid.”
