Beauty Flashback
"When I was younger, I was a slave to fashion and always conscious of trying to look my best," says Marie. Marie used to favor dark lipstick and eyeliner. Even though the look was trendy, it drew people's attention to her makeup, not the features she was trying to highlight. Now she chooses hues based on what complements her complexion, not what's fashionable. The result? Coral lip colors and natural shadows that are softer but still polished enough for the office.
Lighten Up
Marie's natural hair color is dark brown, but she's gradually gone blonder over the years by adding honey-colored highlights. "I can't live without Roux 'Tween Time Instant Haircolor Touch-Up Stick [;sallybeauty.com] to hide my brown and gray roots when I can't get to the salon," she says. She's also kept her hair long, but she doesn't fight her straight texture with a curling iron the way she did when she was younger.
Coddle Your Complexion
When Marie developed the skin disorder melasma (a condition that causes dark areas of pigmentation and gets worse with UV exposure) at age 30, she became diligent about using sunscreen and wearing hats whenever she was in the sun. "It was a blessing in disguise," she says. "My face hasn't seen sun unprotected in twenty-one years."
PreventionPointer: Get Natural Coverage
To hide the remnants of melasma and protect her skin, Marie wears sunscreen and a full face of foundation. But makeup artist Lea Siegel, who did the makeup in these photos, showed Marie how to get a more natural look by applying sunscreen and tinted moisturizer, then dabbing stick foundation just where needed.

Laura Carinci, 51

Beauty Flashback
Laura has always been a high achiever, excelling in college and then tackling medical school. But even with all the responsibilities during her residency, she would still get up early to put on blush, lipstick, and several shades of eye shadow: "It was absurd. I'd be up all night delivering babies and really need my sleep, but I'd take the time to apply these products because that's what I thought I was supposed to do."
Trust Your Instincts
Giving herself permission to follow her gut—be it with work or her personal style—led Laura to a makeup revelation. Laura used to wear a deep rose blush that was too intense for her fair skin. These days, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar (;bobbibrown.com)—a range of coral and peach powders—highlights her cheekbones without looking fake.
Less Can Mean More
Laura struggled for years to make her fine hair look thicker—first with perms, then with lengthy blow-dry sessions. Eventually she realized that a short, layered cut would speed up styling and add volume. Her other secret weapon? Highlights, which can make hair slightly thicker.
PreventionPointer: Make A Bang
Nelson Velcher, the stylist who did Laura's hair for this photo, suggested she rub pomade between her fingers and gently pull her bangs forward so they sweep across her forehead. "It gives her style a sexier, modern edge," he explains.

Karen Conoley, 66

Beauty Flashback
Several years after retiring at 55, Karen and five of her sisters were sharing advice about how to age well. "They said it more tactfully than this, but they basically told me I had lost my fashion sense and was a dowdy dresser," she says. Though Karen had been fashion-forward when she was younger, her job as a judge required her to be very low-key. To comply, she wore her hair conservatively, often pulled back in a low braid, and chose nondescript clothing: "The goal was to be a nonentity, anonymous in every way."
Put Your Best Foot Forward
On a quest to upgrade her appearance, Karen began with her footwear. "I've always loved shoes," she says, "so I looked for ones on sale in order to try out funkier styles." She's discovered that the right pair, such as her gray high-heeled ankle booties with patent-leather trim makes even basics such as jeans look chic. "When I updated my clothes, I got so much good feedback that I started trying even edgier styles"
Don't Go Halfway With Your Hair
Tired of her "boring" hair, Karen wanted a change, but she was afraid a bob or shag would make her look even older. The solution? She took a risk and went supershort with a piecey pixie. It paid off; the cut gives her look a little edge, since it's snipped closer than the typical cropped cut and has a youthful, messy texture. Karen tops off the look with bright red eyeglasses that pop against her fair complexion and light hair.
PreventionPointer: Build Better Brows
On set at the Prevention photo shoot, Siegel gave Karen this easy tip for filling in her thinning arches: Use a soft taupe brow pencil (which works with dirty blonde, gray, and brown hair) to draw short, feathery strokes along your brow bone. Then use an eyebrow brush to blend in the pencil, working in the same direction that the hair grows.

Cathleen Bowen, 53
Cathleen Bowen, 53

Beauty Flashback
As a single mom in her early 30s, this graphic designer "anti-makeup feminist" rebelled against thinking too much about her looks. "I was style challenged," says Cathleen, who struggled to find the right 'do for her fine hair and often borrowed clothing from her mother that didn't necessarily flatter her figure. In 2002, Cathleen was again looking for a way to boost her budget and decided to go to nursing school. Five years later, at 50, she earned her RN degree—and with it a sense of accomplishment and the confidence to realize a little style self-discovery wouldn't make her any less of a feminist.
Invest In Your Complexion
A sunscreen devotee since her 30s, Cathleen now uses a prescription retinoid cream to speed skin cell turnover and keep wrinkles at bay. She also sees a dermatologist for laser treatments to zap away brown spots and boost collagen production. As a result, she barely needs any foundation or concealer. "I get so many compliments on my skin," she says.
Lush Up Your Lashes
Cathleen wore false eyelashes a few times this year for special events and realized they don't have to look drag-queeny. Her easy trick: Trim lash strips a bit so they don't go all the way from the inner corners to the outer corners, and apply them as close as possible to the lash line using a black glue, such as Ardell LashTite Adhesive in Dark (.50; drugstores); it looks more natural than the traditional white glue.
PreventionPointer: Don't Fall Into A Makeup Rut
Cathleen realized that liking a subtle makeup look doesn't mean she can't experiment with her style. Siegel showed her how to swap her usual palette of brown and beige eye shadows for a range of cool gray shades that set off her blue eyes even more dramatically.
