how to: these stars show us how to look stunning even after turning 50
When it comes to these stunning celebs over 50, aging gracefully would be an understatement. From Demi Moore to Sharon Stone, here are a few celebrities who are showing us how it’s done- proving age is just a number.
Demi’s dewy skin (along with her glossy long tresses) is the key to her glowing, youthful appearance. Along with staying away from harmful UV rays and environmental aggressors, be sure to stay on top of your skincare regime. Don’t forget to slather on the sunscreen during the daytime and be sure to add a nightly serum into your routine to combat dehydrated skin and wrinkles.

(this doubles as both an SPF and anti-aging treatment!)
Giving new meaning to daytime smoky eyes, Julianne Moore always knows how to pull off a flattering eyeshadow look that never looks overdone. If you’re over 50 and looking to re-create a smoky eye, try using an eyeshadow primer beforehand to prevent any creasing or smudging.

Proving that ombré hair can be rocked even if you’re well into your 50s, Michelle’s gradual fade of colour can be created easily at home. To get an ombré effect and nix any greys that have cropped up at the roots, try this easy fix- pick a root touch-up kit a few shades darker than your current hair colour and gradually paint the root colour to fade into the ends.

Having a sunkissed complexion is flattering at any age to give a more radiant appearance. But a of inflicting any sun damage, go for a faux tan instead. Self-tanners are a great way to impart a healthy glow and can also add a slimming effect. If you’re new to self-tanning, try a gradual daily moisturizer to build your shade.

If you’re looking for one product to brighten up your face, a bit of colour of the lips can quickly perk up your look. Take a cue from Kim Cattrall and add a glossy lip in a flattering shade for your complexion. If you notice your lips becoming less full as you age, try using a gloss with a lip plumping formula for a fuller pout.
Proof that you can still be a bombshell at 60, Christie Brinkley seems to only be getting better with age. For full, voluminous tresses like hers, try using a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, then spritz on a root-lifting spray before blow-drying with a round brush.
With age, hooded eyelids and wrinkles around the delicate eye area can make eyes appear smaller. To make your eyes the main feature, use an eyeliner to draw attention to them. But shy away from shades like black, which can appear to be too harsh on mature skin. Go for a chocolate brown or violet eyeliner shade instead to define your eyes.
